- The 80ft vessel-turned hotel is moored in the city's Albert Dock
- It has been kitted out in homage to the Fab Four's iconic 1969 album
It's renowned the world over as the home town of the Fab Four. Now one businessman in Liverpool is offering what is, arguably, the must-stay experience for any self-respecting Beatles fan.
A narrowboat has been converted into a floating hotel - and painted to look like the Yellow Submarine on the cover of the Fab Four's iconic album.
The 80-ft vessel-turned hotel is moored at Liverpool's Albert Dock and is the brainchild of eccentric businessman Alfie Bubbles.
All aboard: The Yellow Submarine hotel boat is the work of eccentric businessman Alfie Bubbles
Featuring more than a few Mod-cons, an original scooter from the film Quadrophenia sits in the psychedelic lounge, while the three bedrooms - boasting decor inspired by the 1969 album - all come fitted with 3D televisions, computers and wi-fi.
Mr Bubbles admitted seeking out all the fixtures and fittings for the refurbishment - which took nine months - had been a 'massive job'.
The boat was previously owned by Paramount Pictures and used in their thriller The Hunt for the Red October, starring Sean Connery, which was partly filmed in Liverpool waters.
Mr Bubbles, who also runs Hollywood Limousines, hopes to complete a fleet of floating hotels he will design himself - including Titanic and Black Pearl vessels.

He added: 'It will all be from my crazy head!'
The former freight company owner came up with the idea of a floating hotel last year and his first Joker-themed moat-tel has been a huge success.
The 53 year-old has been buoyed by the popularity of the Batman theme and bookings have been taken from China, the US, Japan and the UK until October.
Rooms are priced at £149 per night, from Monday to Thursday, and £299 and £350 from Friday to Sunday.
