Cheap and cheerful
i stayed at the lord nelson last week on entering the bar i was greeted by the most outstanding barstaff and gorgeous felt such a friendly atmosphere i couldnt bring myself to leave to check in thanks kathy nicci jenny and pauline after a few cheap pints!! v good i ventured to reception where i was met by wonderful reception staff simon and terri lynn. simon was most helpful and most pleasent. we stayed in 208 and it suited are needs completly. on a saturday they have karoke and the singer cathy is exellent, we had the best night in a long time. the only critisem i would make is the night porter frank was very rude!!!
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.

... learned that the area of the labrynith was able to survive with no water. Wow!!!! Following this visit to the gardens we headed to manchester to see my sister, brother in law and niece and nephew. The GPS was great and took us on the country roads to avoid the traffic. We enjoyed a wonderful Shabbat dinner together and the kids are having fun playing and catching up. Now for a restful Shabbat Shabbat ...
... it was an "interesting" experience heading back home with them a couple hours later, raucous and load. No open container laws here! This morning we headed out to Rivington Park for a gorgeous hike in balmy, sunny weather, followed by local ice cream favorite stop near the canals. A fun day of visiting with Samantha ( my god daughter) and her fun-loving boyfriend Danny, as well as Helen's sister Ruth and her friend ...
... When I finally arrived at Manchester I raced to the train station to catch the next train to Sheffield, but once I was on it I was so confused! It was stopping at all these other places & then I found out it stopped at medowhall, which is the stop before chapeltown where I needed to get off. So I jumped off there but there was no wifi & I had no credit on my phone is I was stuck at medowhall. I asked a girl if I could please use her phone but she said no, so I then asked ...

Yes, you guess it, I missed my Beatles Story Experience :(
I hung around Albert Docks for a little bit and headed back to my hostel and called it a night! Tomorrow...Edinburgh! I can't wait!
... knowledgable about the city, and had so many great stories for us that I wouldn't have gotten from other tours. We seriously covered so much I wouldn't know where to start. But a few of my favorites were heading to the top of the library to look over the city, seeing the Eleanor Rigby statue, going by the Cavern Club again and seeing the names of all the people who had played there on the bricks outside, the ...
