“Uninspired, and expensive for what it is”
Reviewed 27 August 2012

We stayed at the Old Dairy last week-end, and I've got to say - it was a pretty uninspirational place. It was clean, but in desperate need of a refurb.

The hosts were fab, however - I think they can definitely turn the place around with a little bit of effort.

We are sorry to read that you found The Old Dairy uninspiring and expensive. Unfortunately, we dont sell inspiraration we sell budget rooms for the budget conscious traveller such as yourself; twin room with everything you could possibly need including wifi, sold at a price of £40 for bed &breakfast for 2 people on a Friday night!!
You did have one of our more basic rooms with shared bathroom facilities, however, as a result of them being more basic they are sold at a cheaper price than our newly refurbished ensuite rooms.
Your comment about needing a refurb - The Old Dairy is constantly being uprgraded and maintained; new ensuites planned this autum for downstairs rooms such as the one you stayed in, new reception area about to be unveiled this week so, thanks for the tip !
At The Old Dairy we always aim to exceed our guests expectations and the majority of the time we do, as our reviews and comments would indicate. Am not sure sure quite what you expected for the price you paid, or how long it tis since you last stayedat a Guesthouse however, value for money i am sure we delivered.

The Old Dairy is a welcoming and well looked after accomodation.
Our bedroom, great bed, and bathroom, even had a bathtub, were very comfortable and absolutely clean.
We enjoyed the breakfast - what a huge selection of pancakes, cereals, crupets, yoghurts etc.
A taxi to Lime Street station was 4 pound, 13 pound to the airport. We also used buses which run from Smithdown Road into the centre and to the airport frequently.

Michelle and David were fantastic hosts. A traditional humorous Liverpudlian welcome, which was great after such a long journey.
The room was immaculate and welcoming, fixtures, bedding and towels all modern and tastefully complimented the room.
We had a great stay at the Old Dairy. Don't be put off by "street view" or location, it is tucked away behind iron gates and a secured door. What awaits is a warm welcome, comfortable and lovely room and amazing hosts.
Plenty of choice at breakfast aswell.
We'll be back again in October...but earlier this time!!!!! :D

This place is nice and Michelle and Dave who run it are great and really helpful. Unfortunately it's in quite a rough area but I think it'd be fine if you get taxis there and back. We tried to get public transport, big mistake. Good cheap place to stay with nice rooms.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay here at The Old Dairy Liverpool. I would however like to respond to your comments about the area; The area is not a rough area, it is simply an old residential area of terraced homes which is typical of all areas surrounding our city centre. It is the chosen location for many students owing to the proximity to our universities and city centre. The bus route to the city is at the top of the street where at least 6 different buses can be taken to and from the city centre. taxis cost approx £5 from a reputable firm with a large fleet.
Hope this helps.

This is unfortunately the last day me and my partner are staying at The Old Dairy. I was not too sure of what to expect but we have been pleasantly surprised.

My first impression on arrival was the cleanliness, everywhere was spotless with new beds and new (feather) pillows to boot. we are staying in room 8 which is quite spacious with an en-suite shower and an unexpected bath.

The facilities are fairly basic but plentiful with what there is. There is a kitchen that is well stocked with utensils etc. there is a dining area which is always clean and plenty of bathrooms about. Breakfast was excellent and there was always a lot on offer.

The Old Dairy is tooked away, not far from the city centre. I am from Merseyside and didn't know this existed.

On arrival we were greeted with warmth and made to feel at home. David and Michelle are a fantastic couple with a great sense of humour, they obviously put a lot of care and effort into the guest house.

We will be sorry to leave and will definitely be booking again. I would recommend The Old Dairy to anyone. It is great value, no thrills accommodation.
