TITANIC LIVERPOOL HOTEL REVIEW
A FORMER DERELICT TOBACCO WAREHOUSE AT STANLEY DOCK
With the upcoming UK Open hosted at the Royal Birkdale in 2017, we have gone in search for some of the best places to stay and visit in the local area. With a short train ride from Southport, Liverpool offers a bustling city atmosphere with a vibrant fashion scene and plenty to do. For places to stay however nothing compares to the Titanic Hotel Liverpool. A former derelict tobacco warehouse from the glory days of Liverpool’s Stanley dock opened in 1848, the site has been the subject of a £36 million redevelopment.
The Titanic Hotel has been integral in breathing new life into a once derelict part of the North of the city of Liverpool. It has transformed a historic building on the “World Heritage at Risk” into a unique visitor destination. Situated within a 10-minute walk from the Albert Dock the hotel is based just outside the city centre which offers a nice recluse from the days shopping and recreational activities within Liverpool. Birkdale is just 30 minutes on the train and with Sandhills station closely located to the Hotel, the Titanic offers a great location for all guests.
Maya Blue Wellness Spa
The onsite facilities create an atmosphere or pure luxury and indulgence. The Maya Blue Wellness Spa offers a generous escape. Amid the red brick arches and beautiful cool stone doors, lie the warm waters of the Roman-bath style hydrotherapy pool and the sauna and steam room. With a full range of Voya facial and body treatments, alongside massages and rubs, the Spa offers an extravagant experience.
Stanley's Bar & Grill
Stanley’s Bar & Grill offers a relaxed atmosphere to compliment dishes carefully prepared in the theatre-style kitchen by the dedicated team of chefs. The restaurant is managed by recently appointed Executive Head Chef Bradley Lean, who has previous experience at The Dorchester, the Lygon Arms and the Four Seasons in Toronto. With further facilities including an onsite bar, WiFi and room service, the hotel offers all you’ll ever need.
The vast space of the renovated warehouse offers high reaching ceilings and generously airy corridors all decorated with a modern maritime theme. The dim lighting creates a soothing and relaxing atmosphere that fits in perfectly with the aesthetic of the area. The room sizes are on a completely different scale to that of other hotels, meaning even the cheapest of suites can offer a room size greater than most executive rooms at comparable hotels. Simple interior design and basic colours create a concept of ever expanding room, yet flashes of colour from copper taps to luxury bedding fits the room very well. The bathroom offers a double sink complete with a spacious bath and huge modern shower ensuring that all measurements and proportions are similar.
Pricing for the hotel is perfectly reasonable for all this extravagance. With rooms starting from £89, spaces are very limited when it comes to booking into the hotel. A complimentary breakfast, onsite parking, a historic location, high speed internet access, waterfront views and superb service, Titanic Hotel is by far one of the best hotels we have stayed at in Liverpool. For such exquisite services at reasonable prices, it’s no wonder the demand for the hotel is constantly high. Whether it’s a small getaway, a place to rest or a luxury retreat, it's a must on any travellers list.
