The Setting

Hope Street is the main artery through Liverpool’s Georgian neighbourhood, bookended majestically by the city’s two cathedrals. The eponymous Hope Street Hotel is sitting pretty in the middle.

The city’s original and independent boutique hotel with its destination restaurant, The London Carriage Works welcomed its first guests on St Valentine’s Day 2004 and, ever since, romance has always blossomed here. They are located close to Liverpool Lime Street Station and only a 25 minute drive from Liverpool John Lennon Airport. They are a three mile drive into the city from the end of the M62.

The Vibe

Built around 1860 The London Carriage Works company had fitted and refurbished carriages, the warehouse was elegantly designed in the prevailing architectural fashion of the day – the Venetian palazzo. This original name was revealed above the front door behind crumbling plaster, and was kept for the hotel’s destination restaurant in homage to the street and its history. They have a delicious choice of menus from TLCW which has two AA Rosettes and a well deserved AA Notable Wine award. The kitchen team have a determination to ensure you are delighted with your choices and can cater for all dietary requirements.

They have 89 bedrooms with seven types from standard to penthouse. They are all different shapes and sizes with the simplicity of the urbane design complimenting the original Victorian interior; pitch pine beams, Cheshire pink brick walls and iron pillars with solid oak and walnut floors. The style is contemporary; white walls, oversized white Egyptian cotton draped beds, shiny white bathrooms complete with rain dance showers and REN toiletries. P.S. They’re dog friendly too!
