Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mrs_E Great night out
Came to Liverpool to see The Lion King at the Empire Theatre. I was very pleased with the location of the hotel, being just across the road from the theatre. The shopping centre to which the hotel is a bit tired... but it's just a short walk to Liverpool One and the Albert Docks.
The only bad thing I have to say about the hotel is regarding the pre-historic hairdryer! Seriously needs updating!
Overall experience - very good! Thank you for a great night, Holiday Inn :-)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MrTea Decent hotel. Very helpful staff
It's a Holiday Inn, so you know what to expect. We had a nice room that was the usual good standard of Holiday inns. The breakfast food is unexceptional but reasonable enough and the usual stuff you would expect as big hotels go. There was quite a good selection.
The location is excellent for the centre of Liverpool, you can walk most places. Car parking is VERY expensive everywhere in Liverpool, but the Holiday inn does a deal with the big Multi-story car park next door, which is very handy despite being the ugliest building in Liverpool, but it is still quite expensive, at around 7 pounds a night.
We spoke to a particularly helpful manager at the Hotel who gave us directions, told us good places to go to eat, provided a map and generally made sure that everything was OK. We certainly felt that he thought it was his duty to make sure we had a good visit and we appreciated it a lot. We certainly intend to come back and we'll stay in this hotel.
Note that it is a little awkward to find using a GPS. If you're using one, set it for Lime Street Station which is just across the road and look for the hideous blue plastic covered car park building which is next door to the hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MV321 Comfortable, clean in excellent location
Visited Liverpool to enjoy the Theatre, Museums and general site seeing. The hotel is opposite the train station, a few minutes walk to the theatre, near to museums and just around the corner from where the tour buses stop. Perfect location.
Only minor issue was the loudness of TV's (two in all) within the bar area. No chance of a "quiet" drink on our return from Theatre. Would like to have enjoyed a quiet area or separate bar area without the noise.
