“Great find out of town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

We spontaneously decided to head to Liverpool as my husband is a huge Beatles fan. We had not booked anything. We were just going to stop at a B & B but I just couldn't resist going all the way and staying at a Beatles themed hotel. We checked out the Hard Days Night Hotel which is right in the thick of Liverpool but it just wasn't our style. I was delighted to find the Penny Lane Hotel which is a gorgeous boutique hotel out of town. Really lovely and friendly staff. It felt brand new, like we were the first to use the room - it opened back in November last year. A really great find including breakfast and not far to visit Strawberry Fields and John and Paul 's houses. Also close to a number of restaurants. Couldn't fault the whole experience. Thanks everyone at the Penny Lane Hotel ... You were all fab!

Room Tip: It's a busy intersection but we were given a room at the back so found it surprisingly very quie...

We have just spent a great weekend away with friends up in Liverpool at The Penny Lane Hotel. Don't be put off by its location, yes it is a way out of town but there is a taxi rank just across the road, and you can get into and out of town for less than a tenner each way. The hotel is brill! and if you look at it that accommodation like this in town would cost you way more than the amount you pay in taxi fares.
The owner and his staff are just fantastic, from when you arrive to when you leave they are there to make your stay relaxing and fun.
The hotel is only six months or so old so its condition is first class, as are the breakfasts.
The Penny Lane Wine Bar is also well worth a visit, its just over the road. We didn't get the chance to try them but there are plenty of quality restaurant's in the area.

Room Tip: I've marked the location down but if you can make it back over the road from the wine bar withou...

We have just returned from two nights at The Penny Lane. From our arrival, where make receptionist kindly came out and drove us around to the car park so we did not get lost, to the free coffee on arrival in the coffee shop, to the immaculately clean, modern room - we couldn't fault this absolute Gem of a small hotel. Pure white bed linen and towels - lovely.

The Penny Lane has only been open for six months, and I wish the owner and his staff every success. Breakfast was perfect - I had the 'healthy' option with cereals, beautifully prepared fresh fruit and natural yoghurt and croissant/Bonne Maman preserves. My three friends wolfed the full English - no complaints there then!

On previous trips to Liverpool we have always stayed in the town centre but the service and amenities at this hotel are far superior. The downside? Yes it is situated some 2/3 miles outside the city centre which was a concern but I can honestly say that this did not bother us - indeed, it was rather nice to leave the madness of the city centre at the end of the night! A taxi cost £8 but there are good local restaurants and The Penny Lane wine bar - well worth a visit or two.

We hope to return, thank you to all the lovely, attentive staff.

Have been meaning to visit this place since it opened, and finally got the opportunity this week.

What a great little café. Loads of Beatles memorabilia, really well done, not just the usual pics of the Fab Four.

Friendly staff, and great food (I had the burger, my boyfriend had the steak baguette, both yum with lovely chips).Free WIFI too. Can’t wait to come back to try the breakfasts. Recommended.

Yes, the Decor is all fab four. I've been a Beatles fan since I was a pre-teen, but I think if I was always there, it might drive me batty. But as a get-away, it was great. The rooms themselves are more "toned down" from the lobby, with some photos, and Beattle's pillows, but not over-the-top.

As Americans coming into town for a Football/Soccer match, it was perfect. The guys running the hotel were LFC fans, who enjoyed talking all things football. They were pleasant hosts in spite of the fact that we were in town to root for their in-town rivals that day (Everton v Crystal Palace).

Great Breakfast. We were in-country for 11 days this go-around, and I can honestly say that their omelet was the best I had the whole trip. There was a good choice of selections beyond omelets of course.

They room was very well put together, and quite comfortable. We were provided an extra cot for our son to sleep in, the room was spotless, they provided a WiFi access point booster, and the room (14) had a nice street/neighborhood view.

We would stay there again, should we find ourselves there again. Hopefully it will be a time when LFC is playing a match.

Room Tip: Room 14 is extremely nice.

I visited here with my Aunty for some lunch. The overall decor is Beatle themed and I thought it had a really 'cool' atmosphere. The two male staff who were working were really friendly and talkative. The food was delicious and we weren't waiting too long. I will definitely visit again and will recommend to friends and family!

Another excellent stay at the Penny Lane. Rooms are super clean and the service is unbelievable. Breakfast and lunch very good too.

Hotel is close to many great restaurants and a short ride to the city center.

Thanks guys, hope to see you soon!
