The former RAF Speke is now named after one of Liverpool’s most famous sons: John Lennon Airport provides some of the best accommodation options for visitors to the north west of England. The airport complex has a choice of rooms provided by respected international hotel chains, while in the villages and towns nearby, you can find traditional bed & breakfasts and family-run guesthouses.
John Lennon lives on in this bustling airport, and you needn’t go far to find a real Scouse welcome. Liverpool hotels are among the finest in the world, putting everything business and leisure travellers could need at their fingertips. The traditional comforts of a B&B in a village like Woolton or Hale may be right up your street. Equally, you could take up residence in one of Liverpool’s grander establishments, and be treated to five-star luxury.
Liverpool and its surrounding towns were prime movers and shakers during the Industrial Revolution, a legacy that lives on in the sheer energy of the city. The chain hotels in the airport complex offer not just a warm welcome, but excellent value on rooms equipped with everything an executive could need, including conference rooms and specialist equipment. You don’t have to be a business traveller to enjoy these kinds of facilities, however. All of the hotels here boast speedy WiFi, and in Liverpool itself, the larger hotels include spa treatments and sports equipment to keep you feeling your best.
Fine cuisine is something we all appreciate, and John Lennon Airport offers a wide choice of dining options: from fast food outlets to gourmet options. In the surrounding villages you’ll also find smaller and more intimate hotels – often family-run – where the emphasis is very much on fresh, seasonal food sourced from the immediate area. These guesthouses and B&Bs also offer a warm welcome, and are a great way of seeing what people from around the world find so appealing about this part of the UK.
The great thing about staying at a hotel, either in John Lennon Airport or the city itself, is that you have easy access to some of the best entertainment and cultural attractions in the country. Famed for its dynamic music scene (which spawned not only the Beatles but many other international stars), Liverpool is awash with interest and restless creativity. Whether you’re enjoying the superior facilities of one of the region’s magnificent spa hotels or the homely comforts of a small B&B, you’ll find the people of this region are hugely hospitable and among the friendliest in the world.
