A Lovely Liverpool City Break with Novotel Liverpool Centre #Gifted

Liverpool, the home of the Beatles and the ideal city for a fun, interactive and entertaining city break.  The fabulous 4-star Novotel Liverpool Centre, located right in the centre of all the action, is the ideal hotel for both business and leisure stays.

The reception team provided a lovely Liverpool welcome and even went all out to check us in early which was much appreciated.  Highly recommend booking a two night stay to give you time to explore Liverpool’s exciting offerings.

Our Executive room with King Bed is the perfect accommodations for combining relaxation and focus providing complimentary Wi-Fi, robes and slippers for use during your stay, a Nespresso coffee machine, and for our anniversary the team also provided us with 2 bottles of water and a fabulous fizzy Prosecco welcome which we loved!  

Our shower room had a rainfall shower, with handheld mini spray, sunken sink and some excellent extra bathroom amenities.

Now after good night’s sleep why not enjoy the onsite buffet breakfast, as they have a full range of hotel options including eggs, bacon, sausages, beans, hash browns, veggie sausages all washed down with tea and barista style coffee.

Fancy continental well no problem, as this is also included, you can choose from an extensive range of fresh fruit, cheese, pastries, breads, muffins, yogurt, orange and apple juice, so you are spoilt for choice.

Impressively, the hotel has a fully equipped gym and pool onsite, so make sure to book in, so you can dip your toe in the water and enjoy some wonderful water time.

The basement level pool, provided guests a relaxing and tranquil atmosphere to chill out, relax and unwind.  Sit back on the lounger and enjoy some much needed me time after a busy day exploring.

After all that playtime, why not head down to the onsite Ropewalks Bar and Kitchen, a comfortable place to enjoy some scran and a few drinks to wash it all down with.

Spicy starters included the hot Chicken thighs and handmade onion Bhajis with a beautiful yoghurt dip, both brilliant choices.

Our marvellous mains had to be the classic Fish & Chips, Vegan Burger with fries and the fabulously fresh super salad all absolutely yummy and scoffed in record time.

Delicious desserts included the beautiful brownie which tasted super chocolatey and then the perfect peach crumble with custard.  Teamed up with a pretty passion fruit martini cocktail and a lovely glass of bubbles.

Fancy a visit to Liverpool, well why not get your city break off to the right start by booking into the Novotel Liverpool Centre hotel where the team will make sure you have a Lorra Lorra Laughs and fun.
