    staying in Liverpool 14th Jun 17 at 2:16 PM
    im hoping to take the young lad to a premier league match next year, around 24th February 2018
    Could someone please recommend places to stay, its for me the mrs and two children age under 11 for one night

    i have tried to look online but the places i have seen are quoting over £200 for the one night, are there any good guest houses that would fit the bill

    We are travelling from Northern Ireland

    Thanks for your help

    I can't comment on guest houses, but Travelodge's should be considerably cheaper than that - I've just looked and for a single room for two adults and two children for 24/2/18, some of the prices coming up are;

    Liverpool Central £128 (handy for Lime Street Station)
    Liverpool Central Exchange Street £108
    Liverpool docks £98

    and also

    Wallasey New Brighton - £49
    (This is the other side of the Mersey but there are frequent trains to and from Liverpool. It also has the advantage of having parking available if you are coming by car)

    I can't comment on which would be most convenient for Premier League football though, especially as you don't mention if you are red or blue...

    There are plenty of ones less than £200 on booking.com

    theyre only half a mile pert and I wouldn't stay near the grounds myself . not much there . look at new brighton good option and 20mins on train to Liverpool easy parking and good for young kids as you wont be interested in the bars and clubs . decent museums in town and the spaceport on the Wirral (new brighton) always busier on red weekends .

    10: Southampton (a)

    24: West Ham United (h)

    I believe it can be difficult to get a room in Liverpool when there are home matches on. New Brighton is a good suggestion, there is a Travelodge and frequent trains, or Southport and Chester a bit further out, but accessible by train,

    I've just checked on the YHA site
    http://www.yha.org.uk/hostel/liverpool

    There is a four bed private room, one double bed plus two singles, en suite, for £139 for the date you require.

    YHA do a great breakfast, evening meal if you want to. You can self cater kitchen available with all equipment, or places nearby to eat out. Hostel is central, I've stayed there, it's very friendly.

    thanks to everyone who helped

    i couldnt get in the New Brighton hotel but went for travelodge in St Helens at a cost of £35, the train or bus service into Liverpool is excellent and the cost is good as well, the other hotels in city centre were asking an arm and a leg

    St helens is a fair way out from town but enjoy . could have looked at the Birkenhead one also . closer to Liverpool but a bit rough around there ( I'm from Birkenhead ) so I'm talking not knocking

    Are you sure that matches won't be changed for TV schedules?

    not sure about that, yes it could change and that sadly is a risk we have to take. Living so far away as we do you need to try and book everything as soon as possible otherwise there is no rooms or transport left or the cost is so high it is just not feasible
