A quirky boutique guesthouse on a quiet street in central Liverpool, 2 Blackburne Terrace offers large rooms with great character, warm hospitality and the convenience of being in the heart of the city.
Hard Days Night Hotel
A Beatles-themed property, the Hard Days Night Hotel is decorated with original artwork and memorabilia of the famous quartet. Song lyrics hang artistically from the sleek lobby ceiling and over-sized portraits of the band members line the walls. References to the band are artfully woven into the decor in the hotel’s eateries and common spaces with more subtle nods to the Fab Four in the contemporary guest rooms.
These 110 individually-decorated rooms vary in size and shape due to the historic nature of the 19th-century building. Decor is modern but understated with splashes of pop-drama in the original paintings depicting the band member on the walls. The hotel’s lavish Lennon and McCartney suites feature private balconies and are outfitted with some of the property’s most unusual curios and Beatles memorabilia.
Hotel life proceeds to a soundtrack of Beatles’ hits and live performers cover music from The Beatles and other artists in the hotel’s Bar Four on Friday and Saturday nights. Blakes, the hotel restaurant, is named after pop artist Sir Peter Blake, co-creator of the Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album sleeve, and is decorated with his artwork. The menu is modern and ambitious with British, European and international dishes served.

All the contemporary rooms are individually decorated in neutral tones with splashes of vibrancy in the specially-commissioned portraits of the band members by New York artist Shannon MacDonald. All rooms come equipped with complimentary Wi-Fi and an interactive LCD TV with access to the internet, music, and movies. The hotel’s two suites are dedicated to The Beatles’ main lyricists — Paul McCartney and John Lennon. Both suites feature a wraparound balcony and are filled with original artwork and artefacts linked to either Paul or John.
Located in the heart of Liverpool, the Hard Days Night Hotel is just around the corner from the legendary Cavern Club and other iconic hangouts of The Beatles. The galleries dotted along William Brown Street are ten minutes from the hotel and the attractions of Albert Dock can be reached in the same amount of time.
Food and drink
The hotel’s signature restaurant, Blakes, is named after Sir Peter Blake who co-designed the Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover. This casual restaurant is decorated with Blake’s artwork and serves traditional British cuisine inspired by locally-sourced produce alongside modern European and global dishes. Bar Four, the hotel’s stylish, wood-lined cocktail bar, has live music performances on Friday and Saturday nights.
The hotel is equipped with an elevator and several accessible rooms are available.
While undeniably themed, we found the Hard Days Night Hotel decor to be refined rather than overwhelming. The hotel has managed to strike the right balance of showcasing The Beatles influence without being tacky.
