Hi dog pals,
Hum had met the lovely Charlotte at the Conference & Hospitality Show and Charlotte was keen to get me to come and visit to show us how dog friendly Hope Street Hotel is.
Hum did the driving and bag carrying and off we went! Hope Street Hotel is on Hope Street in Liverpool and as Hum lived on Hope Street when she was an art student, she was really excited that I was taking her back there!
As the hotel is in the city itself, parking isn’t great but we got discounted parking at the Anglican Cathedral which is just opposite where Hum used to live!
I got an absolutely brilliant welcome from Megan and Samara at reception – lots of cuddles every time we went past in fact and they didn’t want me to leave ever!
Megan helped Hum with the bags and showed us to our room.
Hum was extremely impressed – we were in a Deluxe King room and it was spacious with lots of exposed brickwork and big windows.
I amn’t fussed about all that – I was more interested in the fact that there was a big bowl of dog biscuits waiting for me! Hum got a bar of chocolate left for her and there was a lovely welcome note left on the bed 🙂
Anyway, the good points for your human-folk are:
- Great décor and nice artwork (local artist)
- Nespresso coffee machine; range of tea and biscuits
- BIG bathroom with freestanding bath tub AND separate rain shower
- Quality toiletries, good soap and face flannels
- HUGE bed with lovely crisp bed linen and wonderful pillows
There were a couple of things Hum thought could be improved in the room. She would have liked a dressing table mirror with good lighting and thought there should be power points near the bed.
We met Charlotte in the bar area and had a chat. She gave Hum a press release about Hope Street Hotel and you can see some information, testimonials and famous names who have stayed here on the photos at the top of this Blog – very impressive!
We had dinner in the bar area of the hotel as it is dog friendly and I was brought a bowl of water straight away. The food was excellent and Hum chose the lamb so I could share. Very tasty indeed! The cheese board was also delicious!
Hope Street runs between the impressive Anglican Cathedral and the modern Catholic Cathedral and is home to the Everyman Theatre and the Philharmonic Hall and the Art College so very cultural. We went for a walk along Hope Street and there are several Dog Friendly places to eat; drink; have coffee nearby. The Philharmonic Dining Rooms; Frederiks and The Masonic Arms to name a few.
We slept very well – Hum rated the bed as extremely comfortable – as good as hers at home which is praise indeed.
Breakfast was a buffet but an extremely high quality one. The cooked food was all local produce and the scrambled eggs were the best Hum & I have had from any buffet breakfast and we have sampled lots. The chef at Hope Street Hotel is extremely good!
After breakfast, we went for another walk around Liverpool and then sadly it was time to say farewell to my new friends at Hope Street Hotel and move on to Manchester. I would totally recommend you bring your humans to the Hope Street Hotel and give it a ‘high five’ paws 🙂
