Premier Inn Liverpool City Centre (Moorfields)
Travel Blogs from Liverpool
We woke early and had breakfast in the hotel, served buffet style. We had our fill of before heading out for the day. It was cloudy and a little warmer than what we'd experienced in Scotland with a high of 63 degrees expected, but we still needed our jackets to go out and about for both warmth and to keep dry as it was threatening to rain.
We woke early to get ready for the long day of travel. The Internet was still out, so there was no chance of updating the blog, checking for email or letting anyone know if plans had changed. Fortunately, everything was running to schedule. There was a steady rain with the day's high expected to be around 60 degrees, so it would be a good day for …

The choir stalls, which were built in 1380, are both beautiful and grotesque. Part of their beauty lies in the delicate high spiky intricate canopy which is perched above the stalls, and part of their grotesqueness lies in the wonderful carvings at the end of each stall, and on the misericords.

Location was central, attractions an easy walk away. Price was great and the breakfast was one of the best we've had.

Historical Traveler Reviews Premier Inn Liverpool City Centre (Moorfields)
Thank You TripAdvisor reviewers!
I stayed here with my goddaughter for two nights in June 2005, and I chose it based on TripAdvisor reviews and price. It was a great deal! The front desk staff was ultra-friendly and helpful, the room was basic but nice, and the location was perfect: a 5-minute walk from both the Queen Centre and Mathew Street, and a 15-minute walk from the Mersey. I hope to go to Liverpool again in the near future, and I would definitely stay here again.
Group of us stayed in this hotel recently for the weekend and have to say it was excellent value for money. Great location, minutes walk from the main nightlife area, didnt need to get a taxi once all weekend, the bus from the airport drops you right at the end of the road by the hotel.
As for the hotel itself while the accommodation is basic, it is spotlessly clean and the rooms are a decent size, plus the staff are very friendly. The hotel is perfect for large groups such as stags/hens parties as nearly all the guests seemed to be on one or the other so could get a bit noisy at times
One negative point is that the rooms dont have air conditioning so could get a little hot but apart from that I would highly recommend it.
Great Price, Great Location
It's wonderful to find somewhere to stay in a city that is both great value and in a brilliant location. The Travel Inn is very central, we didn't need a cab all weekend! It's spotlessly clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are big and bright and even though we were only there for 3 nights our bed was changed after the second. I'll definately stay here the next time I'm in Liverpool.
Ideal Hen Weekend
14 of us stayed here on a hen weekend and it was absolutely perfect for our needs. Spotlessly clean and the rooms were spacious, double bed and sofa bed. The hotel staff were very helpful and patient, and did not complain when we came in a bit worse for wear. It is within walking distance to Matthew Street and for this reason alone is was perfect - but added to the fact that it is a smashing hotel - made our stay even better. The hotel bar closes early, but we didn;t mind because there are lots of places in Liverpool that stay open late. The food was ok, but we weren't really eating (beware of late night chip/kebab shops - they really will sell you ANYTHING. Dodgy). This is not a four or five star hotel by any means but what do you expect for the price - we paid £53 per room per night. Cheap as chips! I not only recommend this hotel but will definitely stay there again when I go to Liverpool.
Basic but clean
I think I must have stayed at another hotel from some of these reveiws! Surly reception staff, sparse rooms and shabby bathrooms, but £30.00 for a double room in the centre of Liverpool? You can't ask for much better than that!
Stayed here 1st - 4th October 2004 and what a stay it was. The staff on reception were so helpful and friendly (saying that though I have never met an unfriendly scouser), the room was gorgeous, nothing luxurious but has everything you would need and is so tidy and so clean. The food is amazing and it is perfectly situated for getting to pretty much anywhere around the city. The only downfall was that they would not let me take the bed home, it has to be the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in!
Will stay again.
Rooms brand new, exceptionally clean and bright, also a good size.
Parking really close and easy.
Liverpool shopping, eating and bars really close.
Staff lovely and friendly, they could not have been more helpful.
The food was good, the bar was little but really comfortable and friendly.
Exceptional value for money.
Will stay again soon.
Fisrt rate hotel at a bargain price!
This was hotel was not our first choice but the only place we could get
booked into. We were expecting basic accomodation nothing too
impressive, how wrong we were. The hotel is in a great central location
and down a quiet side street. It has a modern feel to it and everywhere
is spotless. The staff were very accomodating and nothing was too much
trouble. The twin room we got was spacious with a double bed and sofa
bed. The bathroom looked brand new and had a bath and great shower.
There was a direct dial phone in the room which could be used with a
debit or credit card at reasonable rates. In the reception area
downstairs is a well stocked bar with plenty of seating area for an
informal drink. The Slice restuarant is off to the side of this were
breakfast and meals are served. Breakfast is extra but the choice is
great and in unlimited amounts. There is also a good selection of meals
available at competitive prices. Reception also have a holding room for
luggage after the 12.00 checkout. This mean't we could make the most of
our last few hours without having to cart bags around with us. My mum
who i travelled with is a fairly frequent visitor to Liverpool and has
stayed in much higher priced establishments. However she said that on
her next visit she would choose the Travel Inn as her first choice
without doubt. In terms of value for money we were very impressed.
Great service, great rooms.
I had to make an hotel booking for an extremely fussy and demanding European colleague and chose the Travel Inn because it's very near where I live. Reception staff were absolutely marvellous - extremely understanding of the delicacy of the situation given the demanding nature of their intended guest. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
The room itself was very big and contained all amenities. This isn't a five star luxury hotel, of course, but as a business class hotel in a city centre it represents excellent value for money, offers rooms that are far bigger than the norm in this type of accommodation, and the staff - like everybody in my wonderful city! - are extremely friendly and helpful. Fortunately my fussy foreign colleague was also highly impressed with the room and staff and has asked me to book him in when he next visits. A success all round!
Brilliant place to stay!
What a brilliant hotel! Staff were extremely friendly, the hotel itself was immaculate, had a lovely bar and tasty food! The room was a brilliant size and again immaculate. I paid ?25 which has to be the best bargain ever! I've recommended to countless people who on returning have agreed with me. Highly recommended.
