A Beatles-inspired hotel in Liverpool is up for sale. The Penny Lane Hotel, in Smithdown Place facing Penny Lane, is on the market for £950,000.
The three-storey Mossley Hill hotel has been decorated with a Beatles theme to reflect its famous location. All 17 bedrooms, as well as the reception and breakfast room, feature Fab Four works of art and memorabilia.
From their windows, many guests can look straight out at the “shelter in the middle of a roundabout” that features in Paul McCartney’s song Penny Lane. McCartney and John Lennon would often catch buses from that bus stop, which later became Sergeant Pepper’s Bistro and is undergoing a slow renovation.
The hotel, once a bank, is being sold by Christie & Co.
Christie associate director Ryan Lynn said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for a buyer to not only get involved in a hotel which is continuing to grow on a yearly basis, but to also be a part of the history of The Beatles by playing homage to their memory.
