Stayed at this hotel in 2009 for visiting Liverpool's Mathew Street festival.
First of all I'd like to note the perfect location, if you are explorering places related to the Beatles. The hotel is situated on the banks of the Mersey river right next to the Albert dock (3 min walk)
Here is the information center, where you can take the map and order excursions,
and an excellent gift shop (not only one). The tour on the "Yellow Submarine" starts here, sort of amphibious car.
Next to the hotel and the Albert dock also starts another excursion - "Magical Mystery Tour" on the bus painted , as in the eponymous film.
Needless to say, how many places, dear to the heart of every beatleman, can be seen during this excursion, but the truth is, most of them from the bus window. In addition, bus makes a stops at the gates of homes of John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison (former homes, of course) where you can take your pictures. Concerning houses, here is more interesting version of the excursions, but a bit later about that... Excursion ends near the club "Cavern", admission ticket is included in the excursion. In-general, "Magical Mystery Tour" a good start to explore Liverpool and to estimate distances. You can buy it in the info center, but also in Internet.
There is a pier in 20 minutes walking , where you can take the ferry and enjoy viewing the city from the water.
There is also another exhibition center, which is held every year some thematic exhibition. (In 2009 there was an exhibition by Julian Lennon, dedicated to his father).
Approximately in the same distance there is a Matthew Street, where the music festival of tribute bands is starting at the end of August on each year.
and, of course, the club, "Cavern".
Also about the location :
If you want to visit the former houses of John Lennon and Paul McCartney, this can be done by purchasing excursions at National Trust over the Internet.
Convenience is that the place of meeting with the guide is on the first floor in the cafe Barista of Jurys Inn.
The only thing is quite far - railway station Lime Street, if you arrive by train from London. But this distance can be overcome by everyone easily
Rooms are large, bright and well equipped. There is a safe also. Ironing facilities on request.
In storage room you'll been given tags for your luggage, identifying it. In the lobby there is a free Wi-fi for hotel guests, speed is good.
Breakfast is very good at this hotel, great selection of classic cuts of cheese, meat, vegetables and fruit, if I remember right, there were even cereal, omelets and boiled eggs, sausages, bacon, yogurts. However, it seems you can book room without breakfast. In 15 minutes on foot there is a supermarket, and there is a kettle in the room (I love Britain-!:)
However, it should be remembered that in the UK an electric
socket is different from european , and you should have an adapter.
But it seems that in many hotels an adapter can be taken on reception.
In addition, there is pizzeria nearby hotel, and it seems she is working till late.
In-general, Jurys Inn hotel is a good quality, but not cheap choice.
