... windows. There were a few existing real Tudor houses built in the 1700s on the main streets and in the 1800s other buildings were renovated in the same style.
The third thing that people come to see in Chester is the Cathedral., which dates from 1093. Over the centuries the building has been added to and changed so many times. Three new stained glass windows were added in 1993 to replace some that were damaged by bombing in the second World War. They were ...
... Beatles played nearly 300 shows. It was a pretty surreal experience to sit watching a local guy play some Beatles covers on the exact stage the band used to play on. Another exhibit we saw was part of the Maritime Museum on the docks. It was a museum dedicated to the story of black slavery - slaves in America, UK, France and other nations who felt the need to take humans from Africa and own them. A very powerful exhibition which left you asking the question "how could ...
... Portmerion is now run by a charitable trust and, presumably, they don’t have enough money to preserve it properly.
For those old enough to remember, the TV series "The Prisoner", with Patrick McGoohan, was filmed at Portmerion. Interestingly, William Ellis was educated at Oundle School – we were in Oundle before going to North Wales!

Sunday, my last night in the U.K was spent having a lovely home cooked meal, a beautiful roast dinner curtesy of mummy Davies :-D (pictures below) Some of the most perfectly cooked roast beef I've ever had! It was defiantly needed to give us energy to do all the packing, which in the end after putting my suitcase on a diet weighed 22.8Kg my allowance was 23Kg so I wasted 0.2Kg! Monday morning ...
It was after midnight when we finally got to bed last night, so our 5:00 wake up call arrived before we wanted to get up. But, we needed to be out of the hotel by 6:30 as our taxi was booked to take us to the ferry port. We packed our last minute items and dropped off our bags at the front desk for our driver and checked out. The hotel had once again arranged for a continental breakfast for us to enjoy before leaving for the ferry. The ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Premier Inn Liverpool Albert Dock
Great hotel - truly value for the money
We spent 3 nights at the hotel and can hardly believe that it is part of a huge chain. The staff at the reception and restaurant were friendly, helpful and attentive. And though we were told that work was being carried out in the hotel, you would hardly know it - a couple of rooms on our floor was being refurbished, or something like that. The workmen were quite quiet and conscientious. The food in the restaurant is quite good and the breakfast buffet is a pretty good deal, besides there doesn't seem to be any place open in the dock area until 10:00.
I stayed at hotel for weekend of 19th may found it to be way above what i had both expected an paid for hats off to the staff for everything. I have no problem reccomending this establishment to anyone.
The Premieris top class
Booked this as a surprise for my boyfriends birthday. We were both thourougly impressed with the premier travel inn.
It has a set price per night and is in an excellent location, only a few minutes walk from the city center with bars and restaurants right next door to it. There are two bank machines right next door also which is handy.
The rooms were spacious, and we requested a room overlooking the sea which was spectacular. Full floor to ceiling windows overlooking the dock. The beds are large and the rooms clean and well serviced. No room service although you can order pizzas from the bar to take up to your room.
Lovely exposed brickwork throughout the hotel and very helpful staff.
I would definitely recommend this hotel - an absolute bargain for what you are getting.
This hotel is in a beautiful setting, on the albert docks with some rooms that have dock views. The staff are friendly, warm and helpful and the food is great!
You would think you were staying in a luxury hotel but the fact that its classed as a budget hotel is amazing. The rooms are modern with huge beds, satellite channels, hairdryers, lovely bathrooms and plenty of big fluffy white towels. Everything was spotlessly clean. No rooms service but you are permitted to order from the bar and take it to your room. I found this to be just as good as it saves money.
The room was priced at £52.95 and when i walked in to the room couldnt believe how cheap it was....had a huge room with a dock view which was a simply lovely bonus. thanks premier lodge (premier travel inn) i will be back.
Parking is only £2.50 at a weekend so not too bad!
Staff were very friendly and premises was lovely although can be a little noisey and the sound proof is not too good. Remember to bring soap and shower gel as they only provide one little bottle of shower gel for the room for the entire stay! A few mintues walk to city centre. Would stay there again.
I highly recommend this hotel.
We weren't expecting much from a Premier Lodge - little more than a Travel Inn or so we thought.
What we were actually greeted with on arrival was a comfortable, modern and well priced hotel.
Both rooms we had booked were large, with exposed brick work and tasteful decore. The staff were friendly and helpful.
The only downside was the parking (although again the staff were helpful with suggestions!). You have to park directly outside the hotel to benefit for overnight parking payment (this will take you up to midday) other wise you have to rush down at 9 to put more money into the machine (you can't pay overnight for the morning!)
Other then that - a delightful stay had by all and worth a re-vist.
Good hotel - only one problem!
We stayed here for two nights. The room was fantastic, exposed-brick walls, very large and comfortable. We didn't eat in the hotel but had a few drinks in the bar which was great. We had one problem, when we came back on the first night the room hadn't been serviced. When we told reception about this, they sent someone up straight away and were very apologetic. I got the impression this doesn't happen often, but it was inconvenient as we had arrived back late and just wanted to get to bed. I would definitely stay here again though, the location is good and it was reasonably priced.
Super spot to stay !
Booked this room at Albert Dock & couldn't have asked for anything more.Ideal position,parking near,short walk to the shops,quiet area ,all the hustle & bustle of the busy Beatles experience next door.Watching the world go by.Room big enough for myself ,my 17yearold & 14 year old ,everywhere very clean .Will certainly stay again at Premier Lodge & especially this one.
Where's the Weather Map Gone?
Just got back from a great week in Liverpool. What a place. It's a shame Liverpool has been portrayed as a rough place by national press and public opinion for a long time.
The city is bustling and full of colour. You really can see things happening here. We were told that they have recently been awarded with the Capital of Culture 2008, a fitting award too.
We were staying at the Premier Lodge in the Albert Docks. I think they have been open for a year now, but the staff & location were fantastic.
It's only 5-10 mins walk in to the city centre, but the lhotel is actually in the docklands. My investigations at the Museum on the docks describe the building as a former bonded warehouse. Our rooms looked out over the dock itself. Wonderfull.
The hotel was great from check-in to check-out. When we arrived there were three girls checking people in. The music in the background certainly made me smile, it was the Beatles no less. The view from the front door of the hotel actully looks straight on to the Beatles Museum, which is in the same building as the hotel.
We had dinner in the hotel restaurant a few nights, again looking over the docks. The sun twinkled off the water and I honestly felt like I was abroad (air conditioning helped keep it cool!!). Food was great and they really kept us happy all night. We stayed in the bar most nights.
Only gripe I had at all was that it tended to be a little more noisy at the weekend. The bar tended to be very very busy and generally a lot more people on the move. During the week the hotel was noticably full of businessmen and women(using their Lap Tops everywhere as the hotel has WI FI installed throughout).
This however did not cause a problem. At the weekend they had more staff and we felt very safe as there were security on the front doors and in the bar. The manager could be seen every night and even to the time to sit down with us and ask us if we were having a good week. He said he had seen us in the restaurant the night before and it was really nice to chat to him.
Liverpool and Premier Lodge made us have a great holiday. I have already sent the manager a thank-you letter and would recommend Liverpool to everyone. Forget the myths, Liverpool is a great City with lovely people.
Excellent stay in the Premier Lodge Albert Dock
I recently stayed at the premier lodge Alber dock, I was there for two nights and found it to be a most enjoyable stay. I arrived and discovered there where not enough towels in the room, so I called reception who where very apologetic and sent me extra towels immediately. The location is perfect only 5 mins walk from the city centre. The rooms where very comfortable and the restaurant was clean and the waiting on service excellent and friendly. I would definately stay there again and I would recommended this hotel.
