A weekend in Liverpool with Jurys Inn (AD)

A couple of weekends ago we were invited up to Liverpool for the weekend. A city I had only very briefly visited once before and was eager to check out with the gang. We were guests of Jurys Inn, a hotel I'd heard of but not had a chance to try yet so we were thrilled to hop on the train and head to the home of The Beatles (more on that later).

Our first impressions were brilliant, Jurys Inn Liverpool looks modern and fresh with Scandinavian inspired interiors that are right up my street. We were early for check-in so we decamped to the restaurant for lunch and a rest before storing our bags with the helpful staff and heading out the door to explore our surroundings.

(p.s Tom and I went for the tempura fried halloumi and chips and the kids went for a margarita pizza. There were so many great veggie options and also a kids menu with lots of veggie options for them too.

Breakfast also had a great selection for veggie options and hot and cold choices. Jurys Inn also have Costa coffee for those like me who need a latte in the morning.

It was such a sunny weekend and we strolled around the docks, with vintage style ice cream and street food vans all around the water it felt almost like a step back in time to the sixties and definitely added to the whole aesthetic of the area.

We hadn't planned to visit Tate Liverpool but when we saw how close it was to us we popped in and were so glad we did. They have a dedicated children's area upstairs which we could have spent hours easily. After a bit of a play and ice cream by the water though we headed back to check in and check out our room.

 I love this picture because the kids just look so chill and Tom is being so extra haha!

We had a family room which consisted of two large beds, dressing area, desk and armchair and coffee table by the window. The bathroom also had a bath (which is great when staying with kids I think) and was bright and clean and basically all you could want from a bathroom. Jurys Inn actually uses DREAM beds in all their hotels which I can confirm are very comfortable.

The bar and restaurant called 'Odd Socks' we actually found it was always pretty quiet and even at busier times there was plenty of space and really fast and friendly service. We were staying at the same time as a few hen parties but everyone was really lovely and we never heard any noise at night so it never felt like a problem.

The next day we headed out to the Beatles Experience which we were all really excited to see. Wilf is a big Beatles fan and has recently started to learn some of the songs on the piano. Mabli is at an age when she would prefer to run around and through an exhibition pretty fast so we didn't really get to spend as much time as we would have liked but we still got enough out of it and the kids went away with a Beatles blind bag each (they got Old John and Old George) which they played with all afternoon back at the hotel.

When it got to dinner time we decided to go for a stroll and then pretty out of character for me I decided to give the 'Adventure Dock' a go! I mainly did it to impress the kids haha and was actually kind of scared but I did it!

We called it an early night with a glass of wine at the restaurant and room service and card games in our room. Also, new family tradition is now to watch 'Catch Phrase' after we ended up watching it in our room that night and Wilf loved it so much, I think Tom was pretty pleased with how many he got right. I love little moments like that, all snuggled in bed winding down for the evening and enjoying something together even if its a gameshow on the TV. We made so many memories over two days but little things like that are very much part of it.

Then it was time to head home on the bus.. ;)

Thanks so much to Jurys Inn for sponsoring this post and inviting us to make memories in Liverpool we had such a great time and wouldn't hesitate to book with them again. Their hotels are so family friendly without scrimping on style and also providing a great nights sleep and great food!

We have just got back from a weekend in Liverpool. It is such a wonderful city and you can’t help but fall in love with it.

The docks are fantastic, there is so much to see and do. We did the John and yoko exhibition at the Liverpool museum which I highly recommend.

The hotel looks lovely x
