  • Not my religion but I felt really 'connected' here. The in the round seating is a brilliant idea. I felt feeling 'charged up' and at Peace. Not bad for an Agnostic. Smile.

  • Beautiful design. Especially appreciated the way on which the stained glass creates patterns in the cathedral. Paid extra for access to thevcrypt and recommend it. A wealth of knowledge about the history of the earlier and final designs. We couldn't see them, but there was a lively choir practicing and it added to the atmosphere
  • Great 2 night break. The upgraded privilege room with its panoramic views of the Mersey and Liver building were great. Super king bed was very comfortable. Staff great. Breakfast was good but could be a bit warmer.
