Best for Food - Expert review of Hope Street Hotel

The big daddy of Liverpool's boutique hotels.

An extension and refurbishment has added more rooms to this highly-regarded hotel, which I always think of as made entirely of fragrant wood, sisal matting and smooth Egyptian cotton.

Location: 

Liverpool has more Georgian buildings than Bath and the Hope Street Hotel is situated in the middle of them, near the University, cathedrals and Chinatown. It’s quite a way down to the shops and river, but an interesting walk.

Bedrooms: 

Simple and stylish, but luxurious. Entry-level rooms have king size or twin beds, underfloor heating, gorgeous white bedding and eco-friendly REN toiletries, and it gets better from there. Some of the bathrooms are massive, and all share a touch-operated lighting system which I found infuriating. The higher up the building you go, the more striking the views get. There’s a thoughtfully-compiled brochure in each room, which relates some of the history of Hope Street.

Public areas: 

The residents’ lounge is in the brick-lined space next to the restaurant and serves snacks for when the thought of fine dining is too much. There’s also a smaller, quieter lounge off the reception, with squishy sofas.

Eating and drinking: 

The hotel is appended to The London Carriage Works, regarded as one of the best restaurants in the city. Chef Paul Askew places a firm emphasis on using local produce and suppliers. Service can be very slightly wobbly.

Leisure facilities: 

There’s a small gym, perfectly fine for a stop-gap workout.

Service: 

Willing and professional. Staff are used to dealing with high-fliers and, charitably, they treat all their guests as if they might be.
