Hard Days Night Hotel Hits Market

CBRE Marketing World’s Only Beatles-Inspired Hotel

Manchester, March 2014 – The internationally-acclaimed 4* Hard Days Night Hotel in Liverpool, the only Beatles-inspired hotel in the world, has been brought to market for sale by CBRE who is seeking offers in excess of £11m on behalf of the hotel’s private owner.

The Hard Days Night Hotel opened its doors in 2008 during Liverpool's reign as European Capital of Culture and has firmly established itself as one of the leisure sector’s most in-demand luxury hotels due to its key location in Liverpool’s Cavern Quarter and its unique inspiration.

The boutique hotel is situated on the corner of North John Street and the world famous Mathew Street where the new Cavern Club is located, very close to where the original Cavern Club, birthplace of the legendary Beatles, once stood. The 110 bedroom, 4* hotel resides within the redeveloped Grade II listed Central Buildings, which was designed by Thomas C Clarke and completed in 1884. The famous Albert Dock and Liverpool Central Station are just a 10 minute walk from the hotel and acclaimed shopping destination, Liverpool One, is just 150 metres away.

The only Beatles-inspired hotel in the world, it is named after their film, album and song A Hard Day's Night and features exclusive Beatles artwork by world renowned artists throughout. Photographs from the early 60s until present day are displayed along the grand central staircase from the basement to the roof of the hotel, often considered one of the hotel’s most spectacular features.

In addition to 110 luxury rooms, including the famed McCartney and Lennon suites, the hotel has numerous bars and restaurants and is one of the North West’s premium business and leisure hotels making it a truly unique location for conferences, meetings and events including weddings.

The Hard Days Night Hotel has been awarded a number of industry accolades from outlets including LateRooms.com, Green Business Tourism Awards, City of Liverpool Business Awards and has been honoured with TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

Shaun Skidmore, Director at CBRE comments; “In bringing the Hard Days Night Hotel to market, we are offering a unique opportunity to acquire not only a culturally significant property but a hugely successful, luxury hotel with an international client base in the best location within one of the UK’s most popular cities.

We are incredibly excited to start entering into discussions with interested parties.”

Mike Dewey, General Manager at the Hard Days Night Hotel, said; “The hotel was created as a unique blend of high quality hotel facilities with a subtle 'twist' to cleverly portray the incredible story of the Beatles. Its unrivalled location surrounded by Liverpool’s popular tourist destinations means that it is top choice for visitors, with the additional commercial appeal as a business, event and wedding venue.”
