I've booked this hotel for two nights next May and will be doing Beatles stuff (tour, museum, Cavern Club). Just wondering if anyone had ever stayed here & what your experiences were? Thanks.
I was in the lobby once, seemed nice. (not much "Help!")
Love it! Only went in to have afternoon tea from their "Any Time At All" menu, but would have happily stayed there if time had permitted.
We also went to the Beatles Experience museum at the Albert Dock, where you could easily spend half a day or more if you really soak up each exhibit, and took the Magical Mystery Tour bus. That was great too -- a busload of happy people from all around the world, an enthusiastic, friendly and informative tour guide.
The Cavern Club only serves drinks, no food, just so you know. And the music is loud. Down the same street is the Cavern Pub, which serves food, we were told, but we didn't stop in there.
Your trip is next May . . . it won't be long, yeah! Yeah!
Be sure to pre-book the National Trust tour of John's and Paul's childhood homes. Other tours go past the exteriors, but this is the only way to get inside, and it's a fascinating insight into not just them and their childhoods, but how people lived in that time and place. Rick's Liverpool chapter in his Great Britain or England book (same chapter in each) has all the details, and I found it excellent for the city as a whole.
I stayed at this hotel in 2012, it was great, we were in the john Lennon room, very comfortable bed and nice furnishings. Ate dinner in the restaurant, a bit pricy but good food and service, best of all the hotel is easy walk to the Beatles sites including the Cavern Club and the Albert Dock where the Beatles museum is located. By the way take the magical mystery tour, well worth it.
We stayed there in June 2015 for two nights (wish it had been tbree). Enjoyed the Hotel very much. Beatle stuff we did:
The Beatle Story (Tons to see here)
Magical Mystery Tour
Childhood homes tour
Walked around Penny Lane area from the song and got a hair at Tony Slavin's barbershop
Museum of Liverpool (not lots of Beatles things, but a good exhibit on the Merseyside music scene)
Have a fab time!
