My friend and I stayed here for one night after booking with National Express holidays to see Girls Aloud in concert at the Echo Arena.
The hotel is ideally placed for the Arena being only a few steps away from the entrance. Outside the hotel also is the Liverpool wheel. The hotel is situated on the banks of the river, near the Albert Dock. A short walk takes you to the shopping centre.
Our room was on the 2nd floor (220), unfortunately it looked over a flat roof which housed the air conditioning/heating unit directly outside our window. When we opened the window we could hear the drone of the unit, but when closed, the double glazing kept out the noise, however it wasn't a pretty outlook.
The room contained 2 beds, a double and a single. Both had ...
nice white clean linen, there were 2 spare pillows and a blanket. Free toiletries in the bathroom including a soap dispenser, so if you are going on a mini break there's no need to pack these items. There was also a hairdryer provided. Free tea/coffee sachets were available along with a kettle. The room was clean and we didn't have any complaints.Read More
We were on dinner, bed and breakfast basis. Dinner was either fish, vegetable lasagne or chicken in a tomato sauce. We had the fish and it was just ok. The hotel does provide a more extensive menu for those who are only on B&B. Breakfast again, was just ok, sausage, bacon, hash browns, beans, tomatoes, toast, cereals and salads. The eggs were like rubber, even when they were replenished with a fresh tray they were still like rubber.
There's a bar in the hotel and after the concert we went for a drink there. Service was slow, even though there weren’t many patrons waiting to be served. A pint of Stella was £4.
All in all the Jurys Inn is a clean hotel, very well situated for the sights and shops of Liverpool and although the food wasn't up to much we would stay again if we were going to the Arena as it is so well situated for this venue.
