Landmark Merseyside hotel completes major makeover

A Merseyside hotel has a whole new look following a major refurbishment.

Holiday Inn Express Liverpool/Knowsley, on Ribblers Lane, is now fully back in business following the huge £700k renovation.

The investment, made by owners Crest Hotels, has seen each of the 86 bedrooms revamped allowing guests to have a more modern, comfortable stay.

The hotel has been part of the Crest Hotels portfolio for 16 years and Jason Hiley, group operations director, said: “We’re delighted with the outcome of what is a huge investment made by Crest Hotels.

“All of the bedrooms have been updated as have other aspects of the hotel, in order to give a seamless customer journey of the utmost comfort. In an extremely competitive market, we felt it was vital to make this sort of investment and we are delighted with the result. We are excited to see what the future holds and of course welcoming both loyal guests back and new faces too.”

Located at junction 4 of the M57 at Knowsley Business Park, the hotel has four meeting rooms, and a restaurant with a bar, as well as being in close proximity to both Anfield Stadium, home of Liverpool Football Club and Knowsley Safari Park.

As well as a mass makeover of the bedrooms, signature lighting has also been installed along with bespoke bedding and new air conditioning units whilst extra space has been created for families.

“The renovation has come at an ideal time, myself and the team are extremely proud to be a part if it.” said Lindsay Jones, General Manager.

“The property is now at the top of the tree in an extremely competitive market. We’re extremely happy with how the new bedrooms look and more so how the hotel is suitable for not only businessmen and women but also families as we have so many wonderful amenities and attractions on our doorstep.”

As well as Liverpool/Knowsley, Crest Hotels boasts a portfolio which includes Holiday Inn Birmingham Airport, Feathers Hotel, Ludlow and two hotels in Bristol: the Almondsbury Interchange and Arnos Manor.
