The Shankly

The Shankly Hotel Set to Star in BBC Documentary

We are absolutely delighted to announce that our amazing hotel will feature on a new fly-on-the-wall style TV documentary, produced by Spun Gold TV for the BBC. They were the company behind the BBC One documentary A Very Modern Grand Hotel, which followed the staff of London’s exclusive Corinthia Hotel. As a hotel ourselves, we were fascinated to watch the ins-and-outs of such a marvellous establishment – and we’re honoured to have been asked to take part in something similar.

A Very Northern Hotel

The Shankly Hotel Set to Star in BBC Documentary

The show, entitled ‘A Very Northern Hotel’, will take viewers through our lobby, down our corridors and into our lives to give viewers a glimpse into the daily life of what we’re proud to call one of the most popular hotels in Liverpool! We cater for such a wide variety of guests, from wedding parties to couple’s getaways – but what we’re most famous for are our big party rooms on the top floor that sleep up to 24 guests. From the OMG to WTF rooms, to the Garden of Eden and the Jungle Rooms, we think BBC One viewers are in for a treat.

The show will follow our dedicated staff and new General Manager as they navigate one of the busiest periods of the year. As the BBC has reported in their first press release regarding the documentary, running a hotel, managing large groups and making sure each and every one of our fabulous guests has a wonderful time does not come easy. All within one weekend, we could be hosting a large family wedding, 50th wedding anniversary, baby shower and even a high-octane, high-energy hen-do.

It’s imperative they all feel extra special, without each other’s occasions running into one another!

A Unique Snapshot of Modern Britain

Regarding the new show, Clare Sillery who is the Head of Commissioning, Documentaries, says,

“We hope this film set in the Shankly Hotel will tell us something about aspiration in Britain today, by looking at how families from every walk of life choose to celebrate and mark the biggest events of their lives.”

We think Clare is spot on. Here at The Shankly, we strive to provide first-class service to each and every one of our guests, no matter whether they’re staying for an evening, a weekend or simply just dining with us at The Bastion. Whoever you are, you are sure to feel extra-special with our first-rate, inimitable approach to the hotel experience.

The Managing Director of Spun Gold, Daniela Neumann also said,

“A Very Northern Hotel is a warm, funny documentary that provides a unique snapshot of modern Britain, revealing guests’ hopes, fears and aspirations as they mark watershed moments.”

We are so incredibly proud to have the opportunity to showcase everything we do here at the Shankly Hotel in Liverpool. If you’ve ever wondered how the busiest and most popular hotel in Liverpool manages to upkeep such a brilliant reputation, then this show will answer all of your questions.

We can’t wait to share it with you all!
