If you’re planning a trip to Liverpool for football, horse racing, or a romantic city escape, the Titanic Hotel is an uber cool hotel which ticks all the boxes for couples. Here’s why. 

  • Location: Stanley Dock.
  • Accommodations: The hotel has 153 spacious rooms, with rich furnishings, original windows, and views over the historic Port of Liverpool. Room types range from Classic and Superior, to Superior Dockside, Superior Corner, and a Presidential Suite. Bathrooms can have shower or separate bath and shower, and plenty of amenities including luxury toiletries and Wi-Fi. 
  • Dining options: Downstairs, tucked away at one end of the cavernous foyer, Stanley's Bar and Grill is a hangar-like restaurant with an open kitchen and its own bar. It has nicely spaced tables for intimacy, coupled with the open kitchens so you can watch the team preparing your food, which comes from a menu of fun and soul food offerings. The decor is urban and masculine, but you'll quickly feel at home with its warm welcome. This is also where you'll enjoy breakfast if it's included in your room.

  • What else is there: Another central social point for the Titanic Hotel is the Rum Bar which stocks over 60 varieties of rum, and is ideal for a pre-dinner or late night cocktail. There's also a well equipped gym, which guests can access free of charge, and Maya Blue Wellness for spot of pampering.
  • What’s nearby: Besides sporting venues including Anfield, Goodison Park and Aintree racecourse, the hotel is also handy for The Cavern, the Tate Liverpool, the Liverpool Philharmonic, the Walker Art Gallery, and shopping at Liverpool One.
  • Why go: Titanic Hotel has been a welcome addition to Liverpool's premium hotel lineup, kick starting the redevelopment of the Stanley Docks area. It has bags of character, and while the service is efficient and first-class, it's far from stuffy - in fact you'll receive a very warm, Merseyside welcome.

The Space

On a recent return to Liverpool for the first time since my early teens, we wanted to stay somewhere which was cool, central and close to Anfield football stadium. Fortunately Titanic Hotel was ideal, as the closest hotel premium to the ground, and one of the city's coolest and most luxurious places to stay. The property opened in 2014 as part of a major renovation of the historic Stanley Dock district, and it has undeniably unique design features, coupled with views across the Mersey Estuary. It is situated in a Grade II listed warehouse which dates back to 1855 and originally designed to store tobacco and rubber, but its transformation from a derelict shell to a five-star hotel is quite extraordinary, with the overall decor of Titanic embracing the building's former warehouse past with dominant interior brick and iron features.

Where We Stayed

Our Classic Room was upgraded to a Superior Dockside Room, and from the moment we walked in I was almost sad we would have to turn around so quickly and head out. The room was huge, sweeping from the entrance to a small original window overlooking the docks, and decorated in a palette of soft, natural tones comprising cream, beige, grey and brown. There was a really comfortable king sized bed at one end of the room, dressed with soft, natural fibre pillows and crisp white Egyptian cotton linens, with accents of muted colour in two cushions, and a modern chaise longue at the foot with blonde wood and striped upholstery. Unusual artwork included some diagrams of the original Titanic above the bed head. The rest of the decor was made up of a retro burnt orange leather sofa with a coffee table, an easy chair beneath the window, and a Queen Anne style desk and chair upholstered in velvet. The flat screen TV sat atop a long light wood low level cupboard, which was also home to a Nespresso coffee machine and the mini bar. There was a minimum of artwork, but splashes of colour from some of the furniture and cushions, and lovely retro touches such as unusual lampshades, and grey drapes. The bathroom was a major drawcard, and vast for any hotel. It was equipped with a double vanity, a huge walk-in shower featuring a drench shower head, a heated towel rail, and a spacious oval bathtub you could really relax in after a long walk.

Insider Tips  

  • If you’re heading to Anfield or Goodison Park to watch football, the hotel is walking distance to both grounds - don’t attempt to take a taxi or public transport.
  • Save time to dine at Stanley's Bar and Grill, which ticks all the boxes after a long day of watching sport or sightseeing.
