13. The Story

The whole of Liverpool fell in love with Bill Shankly – who changed the face of Liverpool FC forever. The humble Scot made Liverpool his home after enjoying a successful career as LFC’s manager, pulling them up from a Division Two club to a Premier League team.

Settling in West Derby with his wife, Nessie, and their children, the family have grown up in the city. Immensely proud of Bill Shankly’s legacy, the family have chosen to create a luxurious hotel inspired by the legendary football player and manager, in conjunction with Signature Living.

This is only the start of The Shankly Hotel – as work on the second phase of the hotel begun just last month – and we plan to create a rooftop bar and install a 100ft slide. So, if you haven’t done so already, book a stay with us to experience our unique hotel in Liverpool for yourself.
