Many people feel as though they have Liverpool pinned down. Cheeky musicians with funny haircuts and funnier accents, passionate football fans, even the image of a run-down city pervades. But the city centre is rejuvenated, the cheekiness is the same as it always was and so too is the passion. Liverpool is a great city and a diverse one too.

You may have guessed that this hotel has a rather strong Beatles theme, and you would have guessed right. Hard Day’s Night is a luxury Beatles-themed hotel located right in the city centre. The location for Beatles fans could not be better; the famous Cavern Club is right next door. Inside the hotel the rooms are tastefully decorated with subtle touches of Beatles inspiration. The hotel offers a good fitness centre, room service and a bar. Pets are also allowed here on request. You might have to work like a dog, but at least you can sleep like a log.
Privates from £180/ night
The Pullman’s simple, stylish décor is classy without the ostentation. Subtle blends of charcoal and white lend the hotel a quiet sense of luxury, while the list of amenities on offer does the rest of the work. The bar, restaurant, fitness centre and bicycle rental onsite offer plenty of options on which to spend your time. If you’d prefer to kick back in your room the 55 inch flatscreen TV, rain shower and complimentary Co. Bigalow toiletries usually do the trick. Free wifi is also provided throughout.
Privates from £145/ night

Rooms have a complimentary snack bar, rainfall shower and luxury toiletries are provided, along with a hairdryer, safe, kettle and minibar.
