The Best Place To Stay In Liverpool


As you’ve probably seen numerous times I recently went on a quick weekend trip to Liverpool and I absolutely loved the city, it’s definitely up there with London and Edinburgh as being one of my favourite cities in the United Kingdom. There’s so much to do in the city and if you need inspiration here’s my 36-hour guide to the city.

I spent quite a long time working out where to stay when I hit up the city, should I stick closer to Liverpool Lime Street station where my train was coming into and leaving from? Or should I go a bit further out nearer the attractions? In the end I opted for a Travelodge on The Strand which is right opposite Albert Docks on the riverfront and I am so happy with my decision.

With so much to do in Liverpool chances are you’ll be spending a bulk of time by the docks as it’s where The Beatles Experience and British Music Experience exhibitions are housed. It’s also where the Ferry port is to hop on a ferry across the Mersey, Stop number 1 on the City Explorer bus tour is on the docks and you can find The Beatles statue right here. There’s also so many bars and restaurants here you’ll be spoilt for choice.

By grabbing a hotel along the small stretch of road behind the docks you’ll have instant access to these attractions as well as being a 5-minute walk from the shops and ultimately the Liverpool One shopping centre, a 10-minute walk from The Cavern Club and The Radio City Tower.

I only chose the Travelodge as it was pretty cheap and few places offer rooms for three people, but there are quite a few others to choose from along the Strand, there’s a Hilton, a Days Inn, and a Mercure all within a few minute’s of each other along the road so you don’t have to go for the super budget option like I did.

    The TravelLodge sounds like it is in the most convenient location! I visited Liverpool for a hen and really loved it!

    I would have to agree with you at Edinburgh and London are my favourite cities in the UK. I’ve not been to Liverpool before though. The Beatles experience sounds good 🙂

    Thank you for your recommendation. So many people recommends Travelodge all over the places. I personally had no chance to stay with them as yet.

    That’s good to know! I’ve never stayed at Travelodge but I’m always on the hunt for affordable lodgings so I’ll definitely keep them in mind.

    I love Liverpool. I’ve got a weekend booked in September and I’ve booked an air BnB (My first experience of it!) I stayed at the Novotel last year and that was in a really good place and it has a pool (main reason for booking it – soaking feet after a long day shopping)

    I loved it when we went to Liverpool, there’s so much to do! We stayed in a Premier Inn so it just shows how you don’t need to spend too much money and you can have a lovely stay!

    Honestly Travelodge and other budget hotels to me are great for city breaks, you get what you need, a clean bed and a nice fresh room. I love them x

    I stayed in a travel lodge when I went to London last year and it was spot on, clean and comfortable and close to where I needed to be! I’d love to visit Liverpool again, I haven’t been since I was little.

    Ive stayed here for an over night stay when we had to go for my visa extension! I felt Liverpool was pretty small compared to London. We went literally round and round and ended up in the same place hah!

    I’ve never been to Liverpool, for some reason I have never really thought about exploring cities before. Sounds like there’s so much to do though!

    I’ve never visited Liverpool. We also tend to go for budget hotels when we are city breaking, perfect to use as a base.
