Good Hotel Guide Review

In the cultural district, this boutique B&B between the city’s two cathedrals is ideally located for the Liverpool Philharmonic and Everyman and Unity theatres. A ‘calm, relaxing place to stay’, it has a few artistic flourishes of its own too. The handsome Georgian town house, set behind mature lime trees, provides the blank canvas for owners Sarah and Glenn Whitter’s idiosyncratic creativity. Art books are neatly stacked on a tangerine ottoman, original paintings grace the walls. A private gallery is open to guests by appointment. Bedrooms are individually styled – Room 2 has sumptuous gold and yellow fabrics and paintings by Korean artist Eun Sook Choi; Room 1 an enormous sofa in cerulean blue velvet and a 19th-century mahogany compactum. All rooms have Egyptian cotton sheets, fresh flowers, Duffy’s chocolate and a small bottle of local artisan gin. Breakfast – an opulent spread of hot and cold dishes – is served in the art-filled dining room, the polished purple table laid with silver cutlery and cut crystal. ‘A real find in this wonderful city.’
