The Shankly Hotel Reviewed in OK! Magazine

This month, we’re delighted to be featured in Ok! Magazine. The best-selling publication have written a glowing review, and we’re so pleased that they enjoyed their visit, we thought we’d share some of the highlights.

The Shankly Hotel Review by OK!

Ok! praised our fantastic location, noting that we’re a five-minute walk from famous Mathew Street – home of the world famous Cavern Club.

The Shankly Hotel is also within walking distance of Liverpool ONE high-street shops and designer brands, as well as the city’s top theatres and bars and restaurants.

The Shankly Hotel

The Ok! team also raved about the unique style of our fabulous rooms and suites, adding:

“The rooms are huge- more than double the size of the average hotel room! Ok! loved our luxury studio and enjoyed pumping our tunes through the Bluetooth speaker system as we sipped some fizz. The suites are perfect for getting the party started ahead of a night out, and with multiple beds, a 50in TV screen a Jacuzzi, they’re also the perfect slumber party set-up.”

At The Shankly, we certainly aren’t afraid to do things differently. While our original rooms are in keeping with the hotel’s classically stylish theme, our party rooms are given a sprinkle of eccentricity with dazzling interior details and stylish contemporary features.

Ok! wrote:

“It’s the perfect base for a girlie weekend away and boasts an eccentric but stylish interior.”

The vibrant party rooms and suites within The Shankly have been a hit with our celebrity guests. Peaky Blinders star Tom Hardy is one of the most famous faces to have enjoyed a visit to The Shankly.

Plus, Love Island stars Cara De La Hoyde and Chris Hughes are some of our most recent hotel guests. Cara joined us for a girlie hen party celebration, while Chris chose to stay for Aintree races weekend.

Dine at The Bastion Bar & Restaurant

The review also noted that TOWIE filmed their Christmas special in Liverpool, with cast members enjoying a stay in our suites and dining at the hotel’s Bastion Bar & Restaurant.

The OK! team also had the chance to try some of our delicious dishes, writing:

“OK! tucked into the goats’ cheese crotin and the spinach and ricotta tortellini. The hotel’s in-house mixologist is always on hand to create cocktails, including their signature gin and tonis. The restaurant also offers afternoon tea and a freshly prepared buffet breakfast.”

The Bastion Bar & Restaurant is the perfect spot to enjoy a family meal, drinks with friends or special celebration, whether it’s a romantic anniversary, graduation gathering or birthday.

Guests at The Bastion can admire an exclusive collection of Bill Shankly memorabilia items, including his original LFC contract, personal typewriter and letters. Memorabilia is provided by the Shankly family, who work with us to provide guests with the best possible experience.

Pool Parties in Liverpool at The Shankly

Ok! finished their review with a reference to our award-winning Laurent Perrier pool room, writing:

“Live the high life in the hotel’s Laurent Perrier pool room. The champagne-inspired room sleeps up to 24 guests in 12 lavish wooden curtained cabins surrounding a mosaic swimming pool. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate!”
