Liverpool City Region gets first five-star hotel

The Hillbark Hotel & Spa has been awarded five AA stars by the AA Tourism Authority, making it the first five-star property in the Liverpool and Merseyside region.

The Grade II listed building, set in 250 acres of parkland, is minutes from Liverpool city centre and in close proximity to the city’s major business venues.

With 18 individually designed bedrooms, the boutique property is ideal for smaller residential meetings, conferences for up to 500 delegates, gala dinners, product launches, exhibitions and networking events.

Claire Jones, general manager of Contessa Hotels, the operator of the property said: "This is a remarkable achievement for Contessa and fantastic news for the tourism offering across Wirral and the wider Liverpool City Region. Attaining this outstanding rating, especially for an independent hotel of our size, is an incredible accomplishment and differentiates us from other high calibre hotels in the region."

Carol O’Reilly, Liverpool Convention Bureau Manager, added: "We pride ourselves on Liverpool City Region’s comprehensive business and leisure portfolio, and the five star hotel status further highlights the facilities available to delegates and visitors."
