  • We had a wonderful stay at Christine's inspiring place, conveniently close to the city centre and just conveniently close to the airport too. We rented bikes to get us around town, but taxis are a great bargain too, and Liverpool has a lot to offer - so we had a real good time. Add the homemade marmelade, and I want to ... Get Back!

  • Our stay with Christine was fabulous, she is a terrific hostess and welcomes you into her mansion with open arms. Breakfast is top notch and she went out of her way to go and get us fresh baked croissants for our bagged breakfast on our last morning. It was so nice to stay with someone that has knowledge of everything and anything you could want to do in and around Liverpool. Thanks Christine for telling us about Crosby Beach and the Anthony Gormley statues, only a 1/2 hour train ride and well worth making this a must see!

  • Christine is a fantastic host, she provides a breakfast fit for a king (or queen) and lots of useful tips about what to see and do in the city. The room is huge, homely and quiet, with a very comfy double bed, and an open fire that Christine lit for us both evenings we were there. It's a fascinating building too, originally a vast single house for rich shipping merchants, now split in to large apartments. Christine's is refurbished but retains all its 19th century character.
    10 mins walk from Lark Lane, a great place to have a night out in Liverpool. Very friendly. Try Keith's wine bar.

  • Christine was a great host. She was so accommodating to us during our visit. We had a three week old baby with us and a demanding schedule. Nothing was too much trouble for Christine and she was very flexible.
    The room itself was beautiful and my family, who had chosen to stay in a nearby hotel, were all jealous of the amount of space, cleanliness and overall appearance of our room compared to theirs.
    Breakfast both days was lovely especially the scrambled eggs on toast! Plus Christine cuddled the baby one morning so that I could actually eat my breakfast!
    We were there for an occasion at Sefton Park and it was a short drive away. It was easy to find from Liverpool city centre too.
    I thoroughly recommend staying with Christine if you are visiting Liverpool or have a do at Sefton Park.
    Thanks again!

  • Christine is a considerate, wonderful and gracious host and her spacious apartment is amazing with a stunning garden. It's a five minutes (sometimes tricky) cab ride from the city centre but nice to see this part of Liverpool too. We greatly enjoyed Christine's company and listening to her travelling and gardening (website hidden). We are also grateful for her carefully compiled handy tips on where to go and what to do in Liverpool (Lunya for tapas was fab!).
    Our bedroom was perfect and Christine's thoughtful touches for our comfort were evident around the room. Breakfast was a scrumptious spread and don't miss out on her homemade marmalade and jam which, together with her inspiring tales, were the perfect start to the day.
    If you're looking for a warm and genial host in Liverpool, I highly recommend staying with Christine.

  • Traveling around UK, booked to stay with Christine for 3 nights, warm, welcoming and felt like staying with my aunt, our altered plans were accommodated for when we realized we had mucked up our ferry ride to the isle of man.. So very thankful we found Christine and would recommend her stay to anyone desiring a friendly knowledgable experience, close to centre of Liverpool with everything at your doorstep.

  • Christine is a very nice person, very caring and respectful. The room is just perfect. The room has a chimney which is particularly appreciable specially when it's cold outside. The bed is one of the best I ever had and the breakfast Christine prepared us was very delicious and copious. My family and I had spent a wonderful moment in these beautiful mansion and in this beautiful city of Liverpool.

    Response from Christine:

    Hi Daniel, thank you for the lovely review. It was a pleasure having you to visit. Please send your address so I can forward your I player charger. Christine

  • Christine provided a warm and welcoming base for our stay in Liverpool. The room - indeed, the entire apartment - is beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable with plenty of eye-catching features; far more memorable than a dreary characterless chain hotel. There was even a wood fire burning in the grate of the bedroom to warm us before retiring to bed.

    Christine is a wonderful host with a great knowledge of the area, its history and cultural attractions, shared over long, delicious breakfasts which were fresh, substantial and tasty.

    Transport links are good (easily accessible by a short taxi or bus journey from the train station and city centre) and the local area (including Sefton Park) is tranquil.

    We'll certainly be back. Liverpool is a city rich in cultural delights and interests - we couldn't have wished for a better home base. Thanks again, Christine!
