    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.

    ... If there had been any bushes around I would have used that, unfortunately there wasn't. After this unforgettable toilet experience we moved on to Tana. A journey that lasted hours. Our bus was full of luggage, and chickens again! We made a stop to stretch in a small village where everyone was selling mangos. So about half of the people on the bus bought a big bag of mangos. Now on a cramped bus with no leg room, and your thighs are rubbing against the persons ...

    . . . . well actually we never did get a ferry across the Mersey. We used the train instead to reach The Wirral and the town of New Brighton having travelled from Derby via Crewe and Liverpool Lime Street.

    Coming to Liverpool was part of a birthday weekend for Mrs H and stopping in New Brighton was a little different to staying in the city itself. The town promises a long promenade to wander along giving expansive views across to ...

    ... Maritime Museum but have found that the city has a lot more to offer and we are looking forward to exploring it.

    On another note - we have, at times, found various accents quite challenging. We were going well in Inverness until we had to have a discussion with one of the receptionists, Caroline. Her Scottish brogue was very thick - Chris managed to decifer most of it but Bruce had no idea what she was saying. Most of the young ladies in Liverpool ...

    ... Trail in the Kilbroney National Park, hence the long unseen marker posts for the various paths that criss-cross the area. The drive is very scenic with numerous small keeps, turrets and castles that make for sort of magical experience. Even from the ferry we caught several were visible and were obviously built as look out towers for protection and to offer advance warning of attack. Now they are only attacked by tourists wielding cameras. I'm surprised by how ...

    Onwards and Northwards

    A travel blog entry by bollinger_babe on Nov 10, 2014

    This morning I was very tired and it was difficult to get out of bed, probably due to the lost hour and the fact that the mornings are getting darker the further north we go. So it was about 9.40am before I got out of my pit, and got washed and dressed. We then decided to go and get some exercise, so we went up and did five laps (equivalent to one mile) round the promenade deck in the crisp air.

    Then it was back to our cabin to get our Fred Olsen ...
