... and told to go right and it should be right there. We hunted around a bit looking very much like lost tourists with our full sets of luggage but we found it and we are settling in now. We are all VERY tired since none of us slept on the plane. I've made a cup of tea....since I am British for the week that seemed like the first thing I should do...and we are resting for a short ...
On Wednesday the goal was to ride around 55km as this is about the daily distance next week. We started the morning by heading towards one of the parks in Manchester. We knew the park was on a hill but I hadn't quite mentally prepared myself for 8km slow constant climb. I made it to the top without walking! I am not a hill convert though I would rather go round a hill then up it :). After a while riding through the park we decided to head out ...

Today we continued on from York to the home of the Beatles, Liverpool! Before making our way to the York train station we walked down the river and saw Clifford's tower and made some friends with the local Canadian geese. This tower was the setting of a very sad story. A group of Jews were chased by a mob and took shelter here until deciding to take their own lives instead of renouncing their faith. Once at the York train station we visited ...
... my favorite stops so far… the homes that were used as Pemberley in the Kiera Knightley version of Pride and Prejudice and also the 1995 BBC miniseries of P&P. Now, for those of you who don’t know my family as well… my sisters, mom and I love Pride and Prejudice and most especially the miniseries from 1995 with Colin Firth.

Lay down your head and sleep
This hotel is very basic. It's a place only for sleeping. You can't really take a long break in your room because it's not that luxurious to have a nice relaxing evening in your room. So, it all depends on what you're looking for. Breakfast is nice. Breakfast room is basic.
You pay only the price to sleep, have a shower and take breakfast. For a lovely and romantic stay you'd better go to another place.
i booked over the phone and they wanted a £10 deposit,paid via visa on the friday. check my account later that day to see if the money had come out!i'd be charged £100 not £10!phoned up and they werent v.apologetic,but got money back!i'm a student and my room is cleaner than the room i stayed in!very old and smelly!but great location!needs work done to it!
At least I got my money back.
Absolutely terrible, the room was dirty, had a musty smell, sheets were dirty on the bed, furniture was dirty and in bad condition. Did'nt even unpack my bag. Promptly went to reception and booked out.
im a ninteen year old drama student, i had an audition at LIPA, so needed somewhere quick and convinient to stay...convinient yes...but good??oh no!completely terrible infact!!reception staff were snappy and unhelpful,rooms were cold and v dirty. human hairs all over the bathroom!everywhere smelt very musty...we were just made to feel v unwelcome. we almost couldnt bring ourselves to sleep i n the beds at night but obviously dint have much choice...we couldnt wait to leave in the morning.i definatly would never recomend this hotel to anybody!
The worst place i've ever stayed
The downstairs seems quite reasonable on entering the Nord Nelson, but the rooms are dirty and could definately do with a lick of paint and refurbishment. The corridors smelt of drains and the window was held open by a toilet roll tube. I would not recommend to my worst enemy.
No, no, no. Do not stay in this hotel! The room we had the first night was dirty, dingy, it stank of something, and the conditions were something out of the 1950's. No thank you! I wasn't expecting much and I got less. It costs nothing to keep rooms clean and that's the least I was expecting. We came down late on Friday otherwise I would have demanded my money back there and then. They moved us to a different room the second night and at least it was a bit better. Clean if nothing else. They really need to renovate this hotel as it has a prime location, but let down by it's facilities.
I had friends over from all parts of the uk for a party they all stayed at the Lord Nelson Hotel ,they all had the same veiw of the Nelson ,dredful
Rooms where dirty ,items didnot work ie:showers,taps ect,and two of my friend had to change there room halfway through their stay.
I live in Liverpool but stayed the one night in the Hotel and even as a local could find nothing good about this Hotel,and if this is the standard of an Hotel in this location city centre I cannot think what visiters will think of the city of Liverpool
It needs a good overall
A warm welcome
From the moment we arrived until we departed the hotel we were made to feel really special. All the staff were very friendly, the rooms clean and the food was delicious.
The only criticism we had was that there was not a chair in the bedroom - just a very minor criticism.
We will certainly be staying there again.

When they say this hotel was built 30 years ago - they forget to mention that the decor remains the same as it was back then in the 70's. The bedrooms are extremely basic - the carpets and beds are very old and there is a distinct musty smell present. The rooms could definately do with an overall refurbishment. Some of the single rooms do have an en-suite and I would recommend holding out for one of these as otherwise you have to share the bathroom - shower facilities with other visitors.
