The hotel is a former cotton merchant's mansion which has been tastefully converted into premier boutique accommodation. In March 2004 the establishment underwent a 2 million pound refurbishment that included the addition of the spectacular Conservatory Restaurant. The 41-room air-conditioned hotel houses a lobby with a 24-hour reception and check-out service, cloakroom and lift access. Guests can relax in the bar or make use of the hotel's conference facilities. Room and laundry services are also offered. Complimentary ample parking and free wireless Internet access is available throughout the hotel.
This charming hotel is set in the spacious parkland of Sefton Park, yet is less than 2.5 km outside of the city centre and within easy reach of all the major 'A' roads and motorway links as well as being conveniently located for major transport links. Restaurants, bars and pubs and the Sefton Park Palm House are all around a 10-minute walk from the hotel. Other sights such as the Albert Docks are about a 10-minute drive away and Liverpool and Everton football stadiums are approximately 15 minutes away by car. There is a bus stop about 250 m away and the hotel is less than a 10-minute drive from Liverpool John Lennon Airport.
All rooms feature multi-channel free satellite TV, direct dial telephone, tea and coffee making facilities, complimentary toiletries, 24-hour room service (fees apply) and night porter service, free wireless Internet access, and many other little luxuries to make every guest's stay a special one. The guestrooms' private bathrooms include a shower, bath and hairdryer, while the rooms themselves include a radio, an ironing set, central heating and terrace.
Why not experience the new lounge bar facility for early evening drinks and snacks and the award winning Glass House restaurant for a more substantial meal cooked by the highly creative chef and featuring local and regional dishes. Weather permitting the landscaped wall garden at the rear of the hotel with its Italian Terrace is the perfect setting for an early evening drink. Guests are offered a continental breakfast buffet in the morning and à la carte options at lunch and dinner.
American Express, MasterCard and VISA credit cards are accepted.
