The Hard Day’s Night Hotel, Liverpool: Beatles are go
It’s my third stay in Liverpool’s brilliant boutique Hard Day’s Night Hotel but the novelty refuses to wear off. From the round-the-clock Beatles soundtrack to the well-presented art and memorabilia in every nook, it’s a Beatle fan’s dream.
If you wondered how deep my Beatle-love goes, let me tell you that I got married in Gibraltar (near Spain) and my son’s middle name is Jude. I even share George Harrison’s birth date, but that may have been more by luck than design (better ask my mum about that).
But this hotel isn’t just for the Beatleheads. Slick, fashionable and chic, it’s bang in the centre of Liverpool, seconds away from Vivienne Westwood’s shop and the celebrity-favoured Cricket Boutique (more of all that later). It’s around the corner from Liverpool One, handy for all Liverpool’s great bars, attractions and restaurants, and the hotel itself has a lively Beatle-themed bar and Blake’s, a hotel restaurant with a Beatle twist…
