Liverpool’s Beatles -themed Hard Days Night hotel has been named the best hotel in the UK in the 2017 Travel Republic Awards.
The awards are based on customer scores posted on the travel booking firm’s website.
Hard Days Night is said to have prevailed because of its customer service.
The hotel’s general manager Stephen Fernley said: “It’s great to see our hotel being applauded on both a local and global scale, and it makes me feel so proud of our dedicated team members, who go above and beyond to make each guest’s stay enjoyable and highly memorable.”
The hotel, situated on North John Street, offers Beatles fans from outside Liverpool great access to the Cavern Club and other Beatles-themed bars and attractions on Mathew Street.
Since opening in February 2008 for Liverpool’s year as the European Capital of Culture, the hotel has experienced several significant brushes with celebrity.
The Voice UK judge Jennifer Hudson posted a series of selfies from the hotel last year when she jetted into Liverpool for R&B star Ciara’s wedding. It’s believed she stayed in the luxurious Lennon suite.
Robert Downey Jr and the late John Hurt also made the hotel their Liverpool home while staying in the city.
In 2011, some 50 police officers were called to deal with the ‘Biebermania’ outside the hotel when Canadian popstar Justin Bieber stayed at the £650-a-night McCartney suite.
