I'll be travelling to Liverpool in July for the British Open. I imagine that the lodging options are pretty well picked over by now, but does anyone know of any 'hidden gems' or B&Bs that may be overlooked? Rick only lists 2 hotels and the hostel in his book.
Also, after checking into a possible ferry from Liverpool to Dublin I noticed one leaves from Birkenhead and one from Liverpool. The one from Liverpool doesn't seem to allow you to make a reservation without a vehicle...is this really the case?
Thanks for the help.
