A box seat on the action

Get a box seat on the ever-turning wheel of fun and frolics that’s downtown Liverpool. Welfield hosts more than two football teams and offers fast access to the city’s cocktails, casinos and clubs (both football and night variety). Catch the match, get pampered, eat together, drink together. Be merry.

Well-placed for some serious fun

Smartly presented in Liverpool’s Georgian quarter, Welfield looks like the sort of place a well-heeled physician might have lived in bygone times. These days, its purpose is a little less formal. Sleeping 23 and close to Liverpool’s football grounds and the Aintree racecourse, it’s a great base for a knees-up.

Welfield’s a terrace, so don’t go too overboard on site, but on your doorstep sits one of the UK’s leading pleasure grounds. Liverpool’s a 24-hour city these days, an ever-turning wheel of fun and frolics fuelled by cocktails, casinos and clubs (of both the night and football kind).

No saunas, steam rooms or hot tubs here, just a high standard of comfort and a couple of 42” TVs for stags (or hens) to relive the match highlights or a big living space for girlie pampering. You’ll get 20 around the dining table, or slide out to the shady, smartly presented garden to eat al-fresco in the sunshine.

When you eventually roll in to bed, you might never want to emerge. Six bedrooms come piled high with Hilton-standard singles and doubles. Stream Sky TV on wifi, scrub up in two power showers, shop at Sainsbury’s around the corner, hop on the bus straight to the heart of the action. You’re well-placed for some serious fun.

Gardens and grounds

The real pleasure grounds here are out among the lights and sights of downtown Liverpool. But that’s not to say your party can’t spill outdoors. Just keep it quiet after nine to keep the neighbours sweet.

There’s a neat, well-kept, gravelled yard that’s shaded by trees. Pop out on a summer evening for drinks around the tables and chairs, or eat al-fresco and keep the party mood going.

Living spaces

Of course, you’ll spend most of your time out painting the town red (or blue, depending on your football team preference), but it’s nice to come back to somewhere that feels like home. And with a sizeable lounge, Welfield doesn’t disappoint.

Park yourself on the leather sofas (that convert to beds later), pour yourself a Peroni or a Prosecco and settle back for a bit of blatant banter. Two wall-mounted flat-screen 42” TVs come with Freeview and Catch-Up. If you want to catch the match on Sky, tap into the fast EE broadband and get streaming.

Cooking and dining

Takeaways might seem like the order of the day for stags and hens, and local outlets Al Baraka and New Lorens won’t disappoint. However, if you want to do it your way, you’ll get all the help you need from the modern, galley-style fitted kitchen complete with dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and, of course, toaster.

Once you’ve made use of the electric oven, gas hob and microwave, you can eat around the dining tables, with seating for 20, without ever taking your eyes off the wall-mounted TV – essential if there’s a big match on. And if the sporting action is just too compelling that you can’t cook, won’t cook, call our caterers.

Grab some great food in the Georgian Quarter from 60 Hope Street, serving ricotta gnocchi, sea bass or belly pork. Be quick and get good prices on their early bird menu. Visit the highly rated Blackburne Pub and Eatery for great service, scallops and smokey burgers, or Joey Orr’s for salt-and-pepper chicken.

The city’s the place for dishes from every corner of the world. Try Indian street food at Mowgli, or regular Indian at Saffron or Yukti. Eat Italian at Amalia or Villa Romana, Vietnamese at Pho, or Chinese at Tai Pan. When only battered cod and chips will do, The Walton Chippy can’t be beaten.

Clubs, concerts and cocktails

Welfield sits right by the thick of the action. Just a bus ride or train stop away are Aintree, Anfield and Goodison, the Baltic Triangle, the Mersey ferry, cool clubs, Santa Chupitos cocktails and The Beatles Tour. Shop Liverpool One, get to an Echo gig, and sink a pint on Hardman Street where Lennon once drank.
