The Lord Nelson Hotel
Travel Blogs from Liverpool
Matt: Sunday was a very lazy day. We slept late, then just went about shopping a bit in Leeds before the shops closed. Afterwards, we lounged around at Danny's and ordered some "greasy take-out". The next day we would head out. Arising early and saying our goodbyes, we began our journey westward. We swapped trains in Manchester. We didn't get to …
Our morning began at 6:30 with breakfast, and we were back in our coach at 7:15, and sailing by 8:20. Our first stop was at Llanfair, on the Welsh isle of Anglesey, an unashamedly tourist town. The town's official name is Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwll llantysiliogogogoch, which means St. Mary's church in the hollow of the white hazel near to the fierce whirlpool and the church of St. Tysilio of the ...
... England and then had to catch another train on platform 7 to Liverpool and once again waited about 15 min. And another hour later we got to Liverpool. Our hotel was just a few blocks away (thanks Susan) so we got rid of our luggage and I was starved for some real food so walked to The Hub bar and kitchen , walked around to look at shops BUT they were all closing at 6;30! I didn't realize Europe closed so early! I guess it gives me time to blog this. Good nite at 7:03pm ...
Today I booked & paid for my flights to Australia. One way ticket! It feels amazing to say that..."one way ticket" Thinking about it fills me with a whole bag of emotions- excitement, anxiety, fear, happiness. The list goes on. It's booked, I'm going, ...
... popular in Victorian times, but looking a bit worse for wear now. Our Hotel has a great view over the Promenade and the hotel staff are all very friendly. The streets are lit up each night with the "Illuminations", a colourful display of street lighting which have appeared every year for the last 101 years, except during each of the World Wars. Another feature of the town is the Tower, modelled after the other tower in ...

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.
