The award-winning Hard Days Night Hotel on North John Street is preparing to host a selection of yuletide celebrations throughout 2015’s festive season.
Ideal for families, friends and work colleagues, the hotel’s Beatles-inspired in-house restaurant Blakes will offer a range of Festive Lunches and Dinners, which will showcase an array of specially selected seasonal dishes.
Menu highlights include Appleby’s Cheshire Cheese, Baby Leek and Chive Tart, Tomato Relish and Rocket; Traditional Roasted Cheshire Turkey Breast, Chestnut Stuffing and All the Trimmings. Roasted Potatoes and Market Vegetables; Butter roasted Salmon Fillet, Crushed New Potatoes and a Creamy Seafood Veloute and White Chocolate and Bailey’s Créme Brulee with Crisp Shortbread.
General Manager Mike Dewey said: “Christmas is all about celebrating amongst great company and what better way to do so than with seasonal dining experiences.
“Whether guests prefer a merry intimate meal or a lively group dinner, we allow our guests to tailor their visit to make their Christmas festivities both memorable and highly enjoyable.”
In addition to the Christmas dining packages, guests can also opt to relive the 60's, 70's and 80's during Themed Party Nights that will take place in the impressive event suites. After enjoying a Strawberry Fields Cocktail on arrival, together with a three course meal served with a glass of wine, the hotel’s resident DJ will kick start the party with retro music from the past eras. While the 60s fancy dress competition to win an overnight stay in either the Lennon or McCartney Suite is optional - guests will be encouraged to take part in novel games and Beatles inspired photos.
Mike added: “Our Themed Party Nights are a great way to get large parties together and celebrate in style. Over the years they have become a big hit with businesses from across the city due to their uniqueness and character.
After impressing guests on a global scale, Liverpool’s Hard Days Night Hotel has been shortlisted in The City of Liverpool Business Awards 2015.
The popular Beatles-inspired hotel located on North John Street, beat off stiff competition from across the city to become one of six finalists in the ‘Best Customer Focussed Business of the Year’ category.

“As a luxury accommodation provider, a customer focus is key when delivering an enjoyable and memorable travel experience. To ensure that all of our customers are completely satisfied with their visit, our team members go above and beyond to cater for their individual requirements and specific needs.

A Food & Beverage Team Member at Hard Days Night Hotel on North John Street has been nominated in TripAdvisor's Exceptional Service Awards.
Every year, the world's largest travel site spotlights stars of the hospitality industry that have provided exceptional service in 2014.
Jimmy Platt, who has been working at the hotel since August 2013, was nominated in the competition after going 'above and beyond to deliver outstanding service in the past twelve months'.
Barbara Messing, Chief Marketing Officer for TripAdvisor, said: "Everyone who travels knows that the service you receive can elevate any trip to a memorable one.
"A recent TripAdvisor survey revealed that more than two thirds of respondents didn't think hospitality professionals receive sufficient recognition for their efforts. Through the exceptional service awards, we're trying to change that by acknowledging stars of the hospitality industry who made a difference by going the extra mile for their guests and clearly made a lasting impression on the TripAdvisor community."
In addition to Jimmy’s nomination, Hard Days Night Hotel received the prestigious TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for the third consecutive year, and is currently recognised in the top ten percent of businesses listed on the travel site.
Mike Dewey, General Manager at Hard Days Night Hotel added: "It's not surprising that Jimmy is up for this prestigious award, as his delivery of customer service is continuously impeccable.
"His name is mentioned constantly from our guests through Trip Advisor and other review sites, which goes to show that his personable approach is highly appreciated. We are delighted to have such a valued member of staff that consistently goes the extra mile to ensure that every guest's experience is memorable and enjoyable."

Furthermore, wine lovers, collectors and Beatles fans alike can purchase them to enjoy at home -either by the bottle or for the complete set.
General Manager at Hard Days Night Hotel Mike Dewey said: "This new range is part of a long standing relationship between the hotel and Mathew Clark, who currently supply us with a number of quality wines. Not only does the 'Fab Four' collection tie in perfectly with our numerous Beatles inspired offerings - it also provides our guests with something a little bit different."
The Hard Days Night Hotel caricature wines are priced at £17.95 per bottle or available at a special price of £65 for all four.
Mike added: "It's great to be able to provide such quirky and original wines, which will undoubtedly become a firm favourite with hotel residents and the general members of the public.
