    This warehouse-turned-hotel may be a short taxi ride from the city centre, but its distinctive aesthetic and capacious rooms make that £6 worth every penny. It sits in Stanley Dock – a once-bustling shipping hub that’s now undergoing a multimillion pound refurb, in which Titanic Hotel is playing a crucial role. Inside, the rooms reflect the industrial look of the hotel’s surroundings, with exposed brick, vaulted ceilings and urban-chic furniture for resting tired limbs. And while the Titanic never actually docked in Liverpool, nods to the ill-fated liner can be spotted throughout.
