The B&B is a British institution, so naturally you’ll find plenty to choose from in Liverpool. Here’s our pick of some of the best B&Bs in and around Liverpool.

All these B&Bs in Liverpool offer good value in terms of the hosts and hospitality, but when it comes to location, your options are many and varied. Stay urban in the city centre and suburbs for exploring Royal Albert Dock and the Museum of Liverpool, or venture further afield and make your base close to the coast near Crosby Beach.

Birches Brow

Birches Brow

If you don’t mind a 19km (12mi) drive into Liverpool city centre, Birches Brow makes a charming rural base. Local businesspeople Yvonne and Sue have transformed a period farmhouse into a boutique B&B with nine elegant rooms, each with its own charms, from a big balcony (Elm) to a freestanding bath with custom-made champagne flute holder (Oak). You get free cookies in the room on arrival and breakfast is a treat, with a selection of goodies delivered to your door in a pretty wicker basket.

The all-suites accommodation at this modern docklands address offers an alternative to the more traditional style of B&B, but shares many of the same qualities. There’s no full-scale restaurant, so breakfast is the only meal served, and the apartments have a cosy, residential feel. Each comes with its own kitchen area if you feel like cooking, but with Albert Dock and the Baltic Triangle close at hand, you might prefer to eat out every night.

  • The Georgian Town House Hotel

    The Georgian Town House Hotel

    There are just 10 bedrooms at this Grade II-listed property, converted from one of the Georgian Quarter’s many handsome town houses. Each has its own individual look, but all combine period and modern influences (here, swagged curtains and an ornate bow-fronted chest of drawers; there, bold contemporary wallpaper and a digital TV). Breakfast brings a choice of continental or cooked, and you’re only 10 minutes away from the many restaurants and bars clustered in and around Hope Street.

    Marlborough Hotel

    Marlborough Hotel

    North of the city centre, in the residential suburb of Waterloo, this 17-bedroom Victorian villa began as a simple B&B before revamping itself. Now, in addition to spruced-up rooms, it also offers a licensed bar. Don’t leave without visiting nearby Crosby Beach, a long, dune-backed stretch of sand that’s home to Antony Gormley’s Another Place installation, made up of 100 cast-iron figures staring out to sea.

    Edendale House

    Edendale House

    Merseyside’s Northern rail line extends all the way up to Southport, a genteel seaside resort famed for its golf courses, flower show, long pier and broad streets, and said to have been the inspiration behind the grand boulevards of Paris (yes, really). Here, in a detached Victorian villa, friendly owners Josie and Ian offer eight comfortable rooms and a great choice of breakfast dishes including kippers, bacon sandwiches and a full fry-up, plus veggie, vegan and free-from alternatives.

    If you have any questions about Liverpool, John, co-host of this Princes Park B&B, will probably be able to answer them – he’s full of helpful advice on local sights and places to eat. The five bedrooms blend vintage and modern features, and while they don’t have TVs they do come with robes, slippers and bathroom toiletries. Breakfast in the flamingo-coloured dining room throws in a few nice surprises: you might find smoked salmon, duck eggs and locally baked sourdough as well as the usual suspects.
