Cheap and cheerful

but i recently found out he has been sacked. good ridance final thought cheap and cheerful......
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.

To stay or not to stay
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.
This is an old hotel - however, that said, it is very centrally located (right next to Lime Street Station). Also it only costs £28 per night incl. breakfast - although I wouldn't recommend the full english breakfast!
The staff are helpful and friendly and the rooms are tended to every morning.
Would I stay there again? That would have to be a no. But if its cheap accomodation and location your'e looking for then this is the place for you.

... everything that the community would need. At that time it was more isolated, not within such easy reach of Liverpool proper. We had to go through one of the tunnels under the Mersey to get there, but it was not a long drive, just the other side of the river. I will never again get cross that every single time I buy a soap product it ends up being a Unilever product! After a wander through the gallery, ...
... off to traffic. Wouldn’t be a problem except that our hotel is on the docks! As everyone knows, Sat Nav doesn’t deal too well with diversions so we spent the first 20 minutes being told "Turn back…..turn back!". Eventually we got on to the motorway and made it to the studios quick quickly.

... Royal Welsh. Now this would have to have been one of the best Regimental (or Military) Museums we have visited on our adventures so far. The Royal Welsh, as they are now called, are a combination of a number of Welsh Regiments but probably the most famous are the 24th Regiment of Foot. Of course, you all know who I mean... you don’t?? Think “Zulu Wars” (yes, another movie) – the soldiers of the 24th Regiment of ...
I had no concept of what to expect in Liverpool . Thought it would look industrial. However, I was pleasantly surprised . I found it a lovely vibrant city. Clean. Friendly. Great atmosphere. I was immediately caught up in the magic of "The Beatles"... All over again!! In fact, we all were & the smiles lever left our faces the whole time we were there.

... moved to another seat. The train arrived just around lunch time so I walked the 20 minutes to the hostel, buying stuff for lunch on the way. I checked in and the woman showed my to my room, but saw that my bed wasn't made up. She yelled at the girls in the room and asked why it hadn't even made up (apparently they all work there). She then realised she had the wrong bed and found my bed was the upper bunk over one of the girls there but it had no pillow. I ...
