Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by No1millie short trip
Staff helpful arrived early and were given disabled parking the
room was ample in size although it was bitterly cold outside (March 2013) when all the snow came it was warm and cosy.
Had read some reviews about breakfast but there was ample choice.
Would return and are planning early summer as it was too cold in March!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Julie9 Lovely rooms, very spacious
Beautiful setting and very clean. Staff very welcoming, nothing too much trouble. I would have liked more tea/coffee, milk etc available in the room, but only had to ask and we were given more. Disappointed with hot breakfast choices, only sausage scrambled eggs and beans.

My wife and I stayed here at the Holiday Inn Express at the Albert Dock for an ad hoc weekend away last week and were very pleased with the location, value for money and excellent staff who were very attentive and friendly.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone who wants to stay in a central location with good opportunities for dining close by and if you are wanting to go to the Echo stadium you could not be better placed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BoroBoy01 Whats happened to the breakfasts?
A lovely hotel, perfect position for our needs, staff wonderful, and whole hotel decor and lay out excellent.
Biggest let down is the breakfast, we have stayed in several Holiday Inns and enjoyed a breakfast that has kept us going all day, not this time. Sausage, Scrambled Egg and Beans, fruit yogurts or toast.
Breakfast in The Holiday Inn used to compromise of a full buffet selection, the hotel was full too, so nothing could be said about being quiet time

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Neil1 Wonderful View over Albert Dock
My wife & I made a return visit to Liverpool in order to see the Museum of Liverpool, our room overlooked Albert Dock & the Three Graces which was quite impressive in itself. The room was very spacious & comfortable on the 4th Floor. The Hotel is well positioned for all of the attractions of this wonderful city, being a mere 10 minutes walk from Pier Head, The Three Graces, Museum of Liverpool etc.
We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay there on what was 3 very cold days, but the hotel was very adequately heated throughout without being stiflingly hot & would thoroughly recommend it for visiting Liverpool & its attractions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by marlang Comfortable bed and great position
The Hotel is very quiet and let you relax, room are very comfortable and clean, maybe it's a little bit too hot, but you can fix opening windows. His logistic is the best, especially if you want to have a Beatles experience (my window was above the Beatles Museum) or visit Tate Gallery; it's 5 min. walking to the City Centre and in front of the Hotel there is Echo Arena and The Liverpool Eye.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Caz62 Last minute booking
We booked last minute, we had booked into hard days night hotel, but due to a fire and not finding out the day we were due to go it was the next best hotel. We thought the location was excellent and we had a lovely view of Albert dock. Everything was spotless in the room, we enjoyed the breakfast. We plan to stay again later in the year. Right by the Beatles story , Magical Mystery tour bus , the Duckmarine tour and within a 10 Minute walk to the Cavern club and Liverpool one shopping centre which is well worth a visit .

Ideal location in Albert Dock area, great for Museum of Liverpool, Liverpool Wheel and good base for shopping. Stayed in a family room which was ideal for our one night stay. Complimentary breakfast also included, making the stay good value.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ilovedliverpool Great location, not so great hotel
Fabulous view from the window but uncomfortable beds - both beds as it was a twin room. Poor security; reception is located on the second floor and the entrance foyer is open until 11pm. We returned from dinner at 10pm to find a group of people just lounging around on the sofas in the foyer, they were not guests, they had just come in to shelter from the cold. As there is no staff or security guards down there, they can do exactly that and can also access the lifts and consequently other floors and areas in the hotel as all the doors are open; they have no security measures of any kind on them. It also meant that there were young people running around the corridors shouting, unchecked, for a large part of the night. Add to this the fire alarm on the first night of our stay and the hen party on our second night and you get two nights of very little sleep.
Being a former sugar warehouse, the hotel is large and has many rooms but only two small, slow lifts. Surely this presents an access issue to anyone with any kind of disability, illness or weakness? It certainly means there is a lot of standing around, waiting for the lifts.
The staff were friendly and did their best but were clearly overworked and there were too few of them.
Breakfast was underwhelming; choice was somewhat limited. I would not stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NancyAT Cool Building
Loved the idea of staying in this old building in the Albert Dock. Lovely big rooms with view of the wheel. The original features of metal doors and hooks gave a sense of history of the building yet it still managed to be warm and comfortable. Very quiet despite nearby clubs.
The way in and the route to reception on the first floor should have been better signposted.
A sheet of information on local places to eat with closing times would have been appreciated.

My daughter and I have spent another few days in liverpool staying at your Holiday Inn Express on the Albert Dock.
Every time we stay with you we know we are going to have a beautiful room (with a view of the boats on the dock) that would be spotless, and the best nights sleep ever.
As always breakfast was great and included in the price. What more could you ask for.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Alix73 Comfort in a great location
Only there one night but could happily have stayed longer. Our room was spacious, quiet and had a great view of the Albert Dock. The beds were comfortable. Breakfast was a little basic but adequate. 24 hour parking was available at the nearby multi-storey. At £7.50 for 24 hours, (this includes a 20% discount for hotel guests), I thought it good value.
With its fantastic location on the Dock, close to the Echo Arena and to Liverpool One, I would recommend this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by andy35 Hotel with Fantastic Suroundings
We Stayed for 1 night (Friday). The room was classic Holiday Inn express with the twist of the beautiful exposed brickwork of the Albert Dock. The Location was Fantasic and our room looked out into the Albert Dock itself. The room was quiet and there wasn't any problems with Late night revellers returning. The breakfast was OK rather than good and it took them a long time to reflll the hot breakfast buffet. However, the food was a minor issue and the whole expreience was lovely - the Albert Dock is a fantastic location. I wold certainly stay there again.

Will stay here again next time I need to be in Liverpool.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chorleyfamily Good family room
we requested a family room with a view - and were provided with one overlooking the dock. The room was nice, although slightly small once the sofa bed was made up for the children.
Brekfast was good, lots of choice and the dining room was pleasant.
Would stay there again and recommend to others as well.

Room massive well equiped with super view over the dock. Big modern TV with all the freeview channels. Powerful big shower.
Location, room and service make this a must will definately return.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Andrea42 Great Room, Great Value for Money
Stayed here for 2 nights January 1st and 2nd 2013. The room was very comfortable, liked the bare brick look and the kids loved the view of the boats on the Dock.
Beds were VERY comfortable as was the temperature of the room - not overpowering like most hotels (and you could adjust the radiator!) Bathroom was also spacious and clean.
Room was cleaned first morning whilst we were at breakfast and staff also called to ensure that it had been done.
Great location, close to main shopping centre etc. but also enough bars/restaruruants nearby so didnt have to move far with children of an evening.
Only criticism is the breakfast. Lots of choice of cereal and tea and coffee. A little fruit and yoghurts. Only hot choices were sausages, beans and scrambled eggs. This may have been sufficint had the stocks have been replenished regularly but was frequently non-existent or cold. Breakfast area was crowded and chaotic.
That aside would definitely stay here again, staff were very helpful.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Madmorgmart OK for 1 or 2 nights
I can definetly say I have stayed in better but OK for a short break.
We stayed for 2 nights over New Year but would not like to have stayed for longer.
No complaints about the cleanliness of all public areas or our bedroom but I found the bed linen shabby and well worn, needs to be updated.
Breakfast hot choices a bit limited (only 3).
Also could not understand why they did not open the bar until 12 pm.

We were impressed with everything, room size, comfort, cleanliness, helpfull staff, the only thing we thought was alittle poor was the lack of variety at breakfast and the plates are more the size of a saucer, but what we did eat was very good.
