Good Hotel Guide Review

Opposite the Philharmonic Hall, in the vibrant cultural quarter, this handsome modern hotel is ‘a real find’. ‘It’s a fine example of change for the better, in a city that’s being revived so well,’ say Guide readers in 2016. Mary Colston is the manager. With exposed brick walls, vintage metal supports and old beams, the former Victorian coach factory retains a characterful atmosphere in its ‘light, airy’ public areas. Most of the ‘tastefully decorated’ bedrooms have ‘fantastic’ views of the river, the cathedral or the city skyline. Dine on chef David Critchley’s ‘delicious’ modern dishes in the London Carriage Works restaurant; cocktails, sandwiches and sharing plates may be taken in the residents’ lounge. ‘The breakfast menu provides many choices, some of gargantuan size.’ ‘At the end of our stay, the 25-minute walk – nearly all downhill – to Lime Street station was a good way to finish an excellent break.’ Lounge, bar, restaurant. Private dining. Lift. Gym, treatment rooms. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Sky). Background music. 24-hour room service. Civil wedding licence, functions. Limited parking nearby (£10 charge). Children (special menu) and dogs (£15 per night) welcomed. 89 bedrooms (some interconnecting; 2 suitable for disabled). Per room B&B from £114.

Guest comments

'We arrived half an hour before the normal booking in time of 3 pm but that was no problem and the receptionist carried a suitcase to our room - unusual these days. I am not sure about the comfort from totally uncovered wooden flooring in the bedroom but my wife liked that style. The bathroom light pad is an example of quirkyness as is having a settee facing away from the TV, and no chairs. Our room at the back faced a warehouse being renovated into extra rooms. The public rooms are good - light and airy, and I liked the old warehouse metal supports now holding up the ceiling in the London Carriage Works dining room. The breakfast menu provided many choices, some of gargantuan size. It was a shame that for two of our three breakfasts the waitress brought food that we had not ordered. Liverpool has much to offer, and this hotel is a fine example of change for the better. Quirky or not we would certainly return. ' - Anthony Bradbury - April, 2016
