1. Staybridge Suites Liverpool, for riverside adventures

The all-suite accommodation at this modern docklands address offers an alternative to traditional bed and breakfasts in Liverpool, 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 for when you feel like cooking, but with the Royal Albert Dock and the Baltic Triangle close at hand, you might prefer to eat out every night.

2. The Georgian Town House Hotel, for old meets new

There are just 10 bedrooms at this Grade II-listed property, converted from one of the Georgian Quarter’s many handsome town houses. Each room 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 on and around Hope Street.

3. Marlborough Hotel, for coastal walks
