      Historical Traveler Reviews The Lord Nelson Hotel Liverpool

      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.

      O dear!


      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.

      Never again


      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.

      Oh No


      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.

      ... I did fear that I had too much to do.  I made a panic inducingly long to do list in my room piled with stuff to be taken to charity shops and my parent's house and struggled with finding travel insurance. However once that was sorted I felt better until I thought of the enormity of what I'm going to do and became quite nervous.  I keep reasoning with myself that eighteen year olds travel all the time with no worries and I definitely ...

Liverpool was summery with lots of fruit stalls on the sidewalks. Signposts made exploring the city easy to do and the people were really nice. Though more wary of ...

      ... the Beatle history. We figured out that we really have not done a lot in Liverpool so we are going to stay another night in our lovely hotel. We will do a hop on hop off bus tour and do the Mersey Ferry also. Remember the song "Ferry cross the Mersey"? Then we have a rough plan to do York, the White Cliffs of Dover and then off to Bathe where we drop off the car and then head back to Gatwick Airport and back home...yikes, time flies! ...

      ... it until our driver talks us through the lyrics. Just round the corner from strawberry fields was John Lennon's house where he grew up with his auntie. We got told that his auntie lied to him for years saying that his mum lives miles away but intact she only lived round the corner. The national trust owns the house now. Another short drive we arrived at Paul McCartney's house and again he explained some stories of him sneaking out in the middle of the night by claiming down the ...
