Indulge in extravagance this holiday
Adjectives just tumble out as you explore this opulent landmark hotel. Remodelled as a hotel in 2008, this Grade II listed building was the original Speke Liverpool airport terminal. It's now been redesigned to the highest standard for you to enjoy a truly luxurious pre-holiday stay.
This four-star hotel is just a mile from Liverpool airport, so you can rest in your decadent bedroom or suite until just moments before your departure time.
A DH89 Dragon Rapide aircraft stands outside what was the entrance to the airport, now the hotel reception desk. At nighttime, the aircraft twinkles with the fairy lights that adorn it. The slate and deep red entrance to reception introduces the masculine colour scheme which continues throughout, softened by the hotels spaciousness and ample, elegant soft furnishings.
A star-studded starting point
This is where John, Paul, George and Ringo stepped off their plane to hordes of screaming fans in the sixties, and so the Beatles theme runs throughout the hotel. The hotel has recently come under new management, who will thoroughly celebrate the Beatles history here. Youll soon find Beatles-inspired drinks and meals.
A huge David Lloyd gym now occupies what used to be the airport hangar, just 200 yards from the Crowne Plaza hotel. The gym has a childrens Play Den creche, so you can have a little you-time while you work out. There are plenty of gym staff on hand to show you the ropes, and theres even a cafe area to restore your energy levels afterwards. For a real post-gym or pre-flight pamper session, Saks make-up artists are on hand for last-minute hair and beauty treatments for both men and women.
We recommend the Crowne Plaza at Liverpool Airport for:
Luxury - The hotel is of an excellent standard, down to the last detail, and service is exemplary. If youre looking to make the most of your holiday experience, check in to the Crowne Plaza at Liverpool airport for the tasteful design and modern facilities that make this hotel a stand-alone break all by itself.
Convenience - Its only a short drive from the airport, and there are numerous shops just across the road for a little last-minute retail therapy. WHSmith, Next, H&M and JD Sports are just some of the big-name brands within walking distance.
David Lloyd gym next door - Possibly the biggest gym you have ever seen! Guests at the Crowne Plaza hotel have free access to its mirrored dance studio, free weights, exercise machines with TVs, power plates, six indoor tennis courts, six outdoor tennis courts, three squash courts, four badminton courts, indoor and outdoor swimming pools (the latter of which is lit up at night), spa bath, steam room... the list goes on.
Getting to and from LPL airport
Back to the past.
Back to the start: Drive to the hotel and park in the car park, where you car will stay until you return. Pass the restored DH89 Dragon Rapide plane at the entrance and head to check-in.
Back for seconds: Once you've settled in, head straight for the hotel's Starways restaurant. With views of the old airport and its classic plane displays, art deco theming and even a flight simulator, Starways has far more to offer than just food. Of course, when your meal arrives, you'll be thrilled by quality. We recommend the slow-cooked pork belly.
Back to the future: In the morning, when you're ready to leave your retro hideaway, don't forget to sample the hotel's generous breakfast buffet. Afterwards, just get reception to book you a taxi to the terminal. It only costs £4 each way.
Back in time: After your holiday, catch a taxi back to the hotel and collect your car from where you left it.
