Want a nice hotel overlooking a city park, look no further than the BEST WESTERN Alicia Hotel. The hotel is perfect for the city centre, yet tucked away in the quiet setting of Sefton Park. So first impressions were good.
Having to confess to being a little unsure about parking around Liverpool, the BEST WESTERN Alicia Hotel boasts it’s own secure car park with reception operated gated entry/exit no worries there. Once inside the staff were so friendly and helpful, securing taxi’s day or night and the breakfast set us up well for a day at the races.
The Hotel itself is an old Edwardian building, with plenty of charm; but we were really there for the races and the nightlife. So just 10 miles up the road is Aintree and what a buzz the National weekend is. We managed a few wins and headed back to the hotel. Whilst we were tempted to eat inside, literally 2 streets away is a line of restaurants with every type of foreign cuisine you could wish for – Indian in our case!
We headed into the city next to take a look at the Liver buildings and Albert docks, along with an endless choice of pubs and clubs. There were no problems geting a ten minute taxi ride back to the hotel, nor having a good nights sleep in our peaceful hotel.
The next day was yet another days racing. Sadly we didn’t pick the winner of the Grand National, but hey what a great weekend in vibrant Liverpool and the BEST WESTERN Alicia Hotel.
Next up London again and the FA CUP final !
