Small boutique hotel near Bramley-Moore Dock approved

Sunday, 25 April, 2021 20comments  |  Jump to last

Liverpool City Council have approved plans for the conversion of an old vacant warehouse into a 9-bedroom hotel at 66 Regent Road, opposite the Hydraulic Engine Tower in Bramley-Moore Dock.

For the 'boutique' development, ZWY Lettings will make use of 65.5 m² on each floor to create bedroom space. The proposal also includes increasing the height of the property to provide a further floor of hotel accommodation.

It is expected that a series of other developments around Bramley-Moore Dock will follow the construction of Everton's new stadium at the World Heritage Site, with Everton claiming that the new stadium will offer an unprecedented chance to regenerate North Liverpool's waterfront.

Its just the start of the snowball and I am sure there will be a scramble of developers waiting to enhance the North dock areas. Great for the City

Yes, the guaranteed, regular footfall the stadium will generate will soon kickstart many viable investments in the surrounding area.

It couldn’t be better news for everyone who lives in the city. A drastically improved environment and many long term jobs created.

Ah.... a small boutique hotel. I was wondering how they were going to build a small boutique AND a hotel!

9 bedrooms? I'm sure we're going to attract more away fans than that! Let's hope so anyway...

Complete lack of ambition as ever. Should be aiming for a bigger capacity boutique hotel.

Only nine rooms but intended for any straight off the boat working the lump so maybe up to 250 who may be needed to move all that Russian steel for the great North Docks regeneration. Peel Holdings, could be the IoM boats.

Can we take the Goodison Supper Bar Don?

I know it's supposed to be a break and a progressive move forward, but some things are just an institution for our individual match day routine. Chips, peas and onion gravy being one of mine!

Hope there are lots of dogs. I perfected my salsa and mambo moves by walking from the Top House along City Rd and dancing around the dog shit.

Danny (14) - Nah, it's got to be Lucky's Blue Dragon on Goodison Road.

If I don't get half chips, half rice with curry sauce and spring rolls then we won't win.

With Danny on this, Goodison supper bar, will miss that chippy when we move.

The Goodison Super bar will always be fish and chips after the Wimbledon game. The best me and dad had ever had.

We queued up on the cash turnstiles on the Bullens Road around 12.30 fretting we wouldn't get in. After the notorious game they tasted so good, we hadn't eaten since breakfast.

What I love Ian is that no matter how many years it has been, whenever I go back it is the same family that served me when I was 12 years old!

Always a queue, but serve quicker than an Aldi checkout member of staff, everything always ready and waiting.

One of the few chippies that I am happy to eat chips and steak pie, without gravy on.

Agree Danny, as long as I can remember, always been the same family.

How times have changed when your choice before the chippy, was a dodgy Freddie Boswell hot dog, outside the ground, or a wagon wheel, or packet of plain crisps, Bensons or something like that crisps, inside the ground, with piss water tea, or a bovril.
