The Titanic never visited Liverpool but don’t let that spoil the sense of maritime history at this Grade II-listed warehouse in the outlaying Stanley Dock area.

Think industrial-chic high ceilings and exposed brickwork with spacious rooms although it’s worth upgrading to a Superior Dockside room for the best views across to the historic Tobacco Warehouse building.

Factor in local flavours at Stanley’s Bar and Grill, lobby cocktails at the Rum Bar and spa packages at the subterranean Maya Blue Wellness suite. Overall, it’s one for couples and, more importantly, history buffs with lots of heritage features. Set in a conservation area, not far from the new Everton Football Club stadium, it’s also a short taxi hop to the Albert Dock or city-centre attractions.
