Really want to splurge? A little bit of luxury certainly never hurt anyone. From 5* star hotel suites to dining tables with a view, Liverpool has plenty to offer the luxury seeking traveller. Allow us to indulge you…
A luxurious room with a view offers a real taste of the highlife. The Presidential Suite at Hilton Liverpool has floor to ceiling windows; all the better to enjoy gazing across the city’s waterfront and docks. Soak in the elegant marble tub, watch TV or just grab a glass of bubbly and enjoy the view.
Over at the Hard Day’s Night Hotel, immerse yourself in Liverpool music culture in the Lennon or McCartney Suites. A baby grand white piano, two large prints of John Lennon as well as a stripped back white and black motif decorate the Lennon Suite. Over in McCartney, enjoy a private balcony, original artwork and glorious views over the city.
The Presidential Suite at the Titanic Hotel is complete with original brick walls, a separate lounge and entertainment area, deluxe double bed and a drench shower. You might not want to leave the suite and explore the city at all!
If you want a bite to eat then dine in fine style in some of the city’s best restaurants. London Carriage Works is a multi-award winning restaurant on Hope Street. Using seasonal fare to create a modern European cuisine, there’s plenty of taste on offer. The restaurant’s signature dish remains a locally sourced cod fillet battered in Hope Street Gold beer with triple cooked chips, a tartare sauce and fresh lemon. Probably the most stylish fish n chips in town.
Chef Paul Askew’s newest offer to the city’s food map is The Art School, the service is impeccable whilst the menu reflects the chef’s ethos of locally sourced, fresh ingredients. With menus for vegetarians and pescatarians alongside the Menu Excellence, there truly is something for everyone. The Tasting Menu offers nine courses with an option for wine to be matched. Decadent.
Fraiche in Oxton Village (just twenty minutes from Liverpool), boasts a Michelin Star. Attention to detail is the order of the day here with music and lighting chosen to set the mood. It’s a relaxed and enjoyable dining experience in an intimate setting. Book well in advance as reservations are essential at Fraiche.
For a cocktail, Bar Four at the Hard Day’s Night Hotel offers a chic and stylish place for a drink. Paul Ygartua displays work there, artist contemporary of John Lennon. There’s even a special menu of cocktails inspired by the Fab Four, of course.
No luxury weekend is complete without two things; shopping and a spa. Head to Cavern Walks for the city’s designer stores, from Vivienne Westwood to the famous Cricket. For a Spa look no further than DoubleTree by the Hilton for a series of spa treatments. The Titanic Hotel and 30 James Street also allow you to relax in sumptuous surroundings.
Leave Liverpool feeling relaxed, revived and with a view of the high life.
