We headed out of London northbound for Liverpool. During this drive we got introduced to our tour manager, Glen (England/Australia) and our driver, Steve (England). They both seem very awesome, we are lucky to have them. After a quick lunch break, we headed out on the road. However, we were not allowed to sit still and be quiet. Nooooo. Glen had us …

... the claddagh ring in Ireland that let's a potential suitor know if the woman he is admiring is available by which hand she is wearing the ring. So far, I think I have liked Wales the best. It's all been wonderful and fascinating, but Wales is romantic and its history chivalric. The countryside is rugged, but its people look content and happy. We'll spend the night in Chester, England, and have dinner at our ...
This morning started with a 6:30 taxi ride to to the Ulyses IRISH FERRY in Dublin. We boarded after going security with our luggage and went up to the Club where we had free snacks for our 3 hour voyage to Holy Rod in Wales. I didn't get sea sick but Iayed down most of the trip. As you am see from pics it was not at all crowded. We landed about 11:30 and a bus drove us to the station to get a train to Liverpool . We only had to wait about 15 min. We rode it about a hour ...

Historical Traveler Reviews ibis Liverpool Centre Albert Dock
This was the 2nd time we have stayed at the Ibis Liverpool and both times we had an brilliant time. I think the room rates are great for what you get even across the road at the premier lodge you dont get the free parking in which you do at the Ibis when we stayed there we were paying £11.00 per day to park!! The rooms are clean, the staff are great, the restaurant does a lovely burger and chips for a few quid. The only negative i can think of is that there is no bath only shower and we were only initially given one big towell each but when we asked we were given a big bundle.
My girlfriend and I live in different parts of the Country, I in London and she in Lincoln, so we try to catch as many weekends together as we can. In September we hit upon the idea of having a long weekend in Liverpool and having sorted out our travel - which is a story in itself - we got around to booking our hotel, we have stayed in Ibis hotels before mainly at Lincoln - bad experience - and at Greenwich - very good experience, so we thought we'd try the Ibis in Liverpool, mainly because it's so close to the centre of the city and the Albert Dock.
Great location and value
Stayed at the Ibis for 1 night. There were three of us in total including a child. We checked in at noon on the Saturday, the check in staff were friendly and did their jobs well. When we got to our room, we found it to be very clean and tidy. The beds were very firm which we like. The shower the next morning was excellent. As was the cooked breakfast. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Excellent.
Fast check in. Nice clean room with views looking towards the fabulous Albert Dock. Good location. Well cooked English breakfast buffet for an extra £6.95. Free parking. All in all a good experience and will use this hotel again.
Very friendly, good location, good value
This was our second visit to the Ibis Liverpool, we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The hotel is well located with main tourist areas and shops within walking distance. We will definitely be back!
After travelling for 5 hours to Liverpool from Surrey with my partner and 5 year old son, we arrived at the Hotel Ibis to an awful reception from the staff - particularly one member called Rachel. The rooms had been booked for over 6 months as it was a family wedding. As the rooms were booked with my mums credit card they wouldn't release the room to us because they weren't in our names. We offered to pay cash for the room but because we had no photo. ID they wouldn't let us have it. We decided to wait for my mum to arrive with the credit card and so told them to forget it as they were making it extremely difficult for us. We waited in the reception area and I then went to get my driving licence to see if that was any good but was then informed by Rachel that we now had no room, she had rebooked it as we had told her to "forget it". We tried to explain to her that she had no right to cancel the room because according to her the room was never ours to cancel. It was obvious we hadn't left the premises and were still waiting for our room. She had breached a contract between my mother and the Hotel Ibis by re-letting the room without my mothers say so. She had effectively left us homeless in Liverpool on one of the busiest weekends in the year with no other room to be had in the whole city with a 5 yr old child. She was extremely rude to us and wouldn't listen to a word we were trying to say to her. In the end, the Bride had to phone them up and beg them to reinstate the room as I was the bridesmaid and she had booked over a 100 rooms in that hotel for the w/e. She made us move away from the reception desk whilst she tried to find another room - like we were some sort of second class citizens. She couldn't seem to comprehend what she had done wrong.
I've stayed at the Ibis Liverpool quite a few times now, and found it good value for the money. Its location is good, but be warned, it gets very windy at times on the waterfront! I tend NOT to eat in hotels, but thats not a problem with the Ibis, as the Baltic Fleet almost next door serves some of the finest food to be found in the city, and at reasonable prices. The beds in the hotel are a little lumpy, but the shower you get is great! I'd have no problem staying there again.
For the money and location (overlooking Albert Docks and a 10 minute walk to the shops), IBIS Liverpool could be considered spot on. There were some teething problems however - we were given a double room when we had booked a twin room, the air conditioning didn't work and the sheets smelt stale. To top it off, we were awaken by drunken, rowdy guests in the middle of the night. However, all this was nothing in comparison to the "buffet breakfast" for which we had paid an extra £4.50 each. We were greeted by tables covered in overflowing pots, sticky floors and unclean cutlery. There was no hot water in the tea and coffee making machines, orange juice, glasses, mugs, knives or bread and when we tried to tell the one waitress we did manage to find, she didn't speak any English. It was utter chaos and the worst breakfast experience I have ever had! Take my advice - pay a little more and get a lot less hassle.
This hotel is great value.
The rooms are very nice. It has proper air conditioning. The staff are very friendly.
It is opposite the docks redevelopment in Liverpool. The Pan American club bar in the docks development is well worth a visit!
The Ibis is a fantastic hotel for the price (£45) and offers very modern accomodation overlooking the Albert Dock.
