We’ve taken a look around the new Novotel Liverpool Paddington Village hotel.
Walking in to the hotel you are immediately hit by how light and airy it feels – this doesn’t just feel like a hotel atrium, people are busy plugged in to one of the many tables scattered around the room enabling people to work in an open environment. Wireless charge points are featured on tables to minimise the need for cables and there is a Bean Coffee shop situated to the rear of the atrium allowing for guests and visitors to pick up a drink or a quick bite to eat.
Novotel Sales Director, Sara Mullins tells us.
“We’ve been keen to partner with local companies, Bean Coffee is our coffee shop partner and its coffee pods are also available for the coffee machines in our Executive bedrooms & Studio Apartments. We’ve also partnered with Liverpool Lost Dock Rum, Murphy’s Gin and Vodka, Love Lane Brewery and Rascal Gin at our bar – all local suppliers.”
Entering the lift we reach the 15th floor, floor to ceiling windows offer spectacular views across the city at the ends of the corridors and bedrooms. We’re looking at a studio apartment room which features a super-king size bed, sofa that can double as an additional bed, swivel Chromecast TV (standard in all rooms), large en-suite and a mini kitchen area equipped with fridge and microwave. Sara continues:
“We are anticipating due to our location being in the Knowledge Quarter and the Royal Hospital so close that some people will be looking to stay longer than your average stay. The studio apartments offer that extra flexibility and comfort – we have three on each floor.”
Both the Executive rooms and the Standard rooms are a decent size, with trundle beds for families, and all have their own mini fridge. For those wanting to work, the Executive rooms have a desk space for laptop use, and perhaps the most unique element of the hotel is the accessible room with hoist facility available. Thought to be the only one like it in the city, the room has an over the bed hoist with an adjoining room for a guest/carer to be on hand.
Back downstairs and the Meeting Rooms offer turnkey solutions for flexibility of meeting size, and the bar and restaurant area has capacity for 120 covers. The restaurant has an open theatre kitchen with seating configurations for all parties.
“Being located next to The Spine we can open our doors and have immediate access between our buildings. We anticipate we will be of interest to event organisers who can make the most of our chef’s menus, as well as those staying in the hotel who would like to experience some great dishes and dine with us in the evening.”
