Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Everything perfect. A real find in this wonderful city.’ Our readers are impressed with this chic B&B, in the Georgian quarter, between the two cathedrals. The ‘very warm hosts’, interior designer Glenn Whitter and his musician wife, Sarah, have filled their meticulously restored 1820s mansion with contemporary furniture, antiques, ‘interesting’ artwork and architectural photographs. A ‘calm, relaxing’ oasis, on a cobbled drive behind a screen of lime trees, it is ‘within walking distance of Liverpool’s attractions’. The bedrooms, with graceful Georgian proportions, are ‘wonderfully quiet’, carpeted, supplied with hand-made chocolates, a nip or two of artisan gin, fresh milk, luxury toiletries, bathrobes, slippers. One has a velvet sleigh bed and blue velvet sofa, an in-room, freestanding bath, a shower room, views of the Anglican cathedral. A former reception room, with wrought iron balcony, has a French classic sofa, a marble bathroom. Bedlinen is ‘of the highest quality’. Breakfast begins with a generous buffet, and is served at a table set with silverware, porcelain and cut crystal. Cooked dishes include kippers, smoked salmon, the full English. (AT)
