Enjoyed one night leisure stay @ Crowne Plaza Liverpool. First time staying here - chose the Plaza owing to great Pier Head location and great price.
Staff - all friendly during our stay. Special
mention for Irinel on reception and Frank on the door - very friendly welcome on arrival which set tone for the stay.
Room - our room ticked all the boxes for comfort and cleanliness. Added benefit of being on 4th floor overlooking the docks.
Food - only had breakfast . Standard hotel fare with all the normal choices.
Bar - enjoyed a few drinks at the bar, good choice at normal hotel prices.
Swimming pool /Spa - was hoping to use these, however , late night at the bar put paid to this . Facilities looked superb with large pool.
Local attractions - hotel convenient for " ferry across the Mersey " and catching the " hop on/hop off" red sightseeing bus. Bus really good value if you buy beforehand @ groupon etc @ £4 per ticket . Tour lasts say 60 mins if you don't get off the bus , takes you all round Liverpool with helpful commentary provided. Numerous stops along the route @ museums / shops etc. We stopped at Anglican cathedral - staggering building and largest cathedral in UK and 5th largest in the world. Really worth spending an hour or so here.
Eating out - we had supper at Italian fish restaurant @ top of Bold Street Great food and cosy atmosphere . Following day we had fine dining lunch on 34th floor of the Panoramic hotel - views are superb and worth the premium pricing for the food.
All in all - great stay at the superbly located Crowne Plaza hotel , and will look to return when visiting Liverpool again. [Less]
