Now readers I am a teeny bit biased when I say Liverpool is the greatest city ever given that it’s my hometown, but honestly, it really is and if you want to stay somewhere central, where the restaurant is incredible, staff helpful and friendly with views of the city to die for…you’d be hard pushed to find a better place than The Pullman Liverpool to stay.
Situated in the historic Albert Dock which is one of the city’s top attractions, a stone’s throw from the best shopping the North west has to offer at Liverpool One and of course the legendary Beatles sites, the only drawback for me was that there was no parking.However, there are several 24 hour car parks within a 5 minute walk of the hotel so this was a lot less dramatic than I imagined it might be.
I arrived early evening on a Friday. I was greeted by very friendly and helpful staff and I made my way up to my room on the 8th floor…the sight that greeted me when I opened my door took my breath away. The view of the city was quite simply, spectacular, I would argue that the Liverpool skyline seen from the 8th floor of the Pullman is almost a tourist attraction by itself!
I had dinner reservations & had taken the opportunity to meet up with family on this trip so we were a table of 6 but this is a great restaurant for groups oh and did I mention there was a new born too? Children also welcome it manages to straddle the difficult balance of casual and elegant.
I ate, for starter, Mr White organic egg mayonnaise with Morecambe Bay shrimps, the perfect starter for someone who is perpetually on a low carb diet…followed by the Wheeler fish cake with poached hen’s egg and wilted spinach…all washed down with a glass of Prosecco and a Liverpool Gin g&t, all utterly delicious.
I then said my goodbyes to my assorted family members (after having insisting they ALL saw my view) had the most amazing hot shower with the complimentary Mr Bigelow toiletries and went to bed, drifting off to sleep looking at the best view in the world.
