Liverpool’s famous Adelphi Hotel has been hit with a zero star hygiene rating, following an inspection in March.

The once glorious hotel on Ranelagh Street is looking rather run down and has earned a poor name over recent years, with bad customer reviews and the tragic death of Chloe Haynes, who was found crushed under a wardrobe in one of its rooms.
