We cook a lot of meals at home and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything from measuring cups and cutting boards, to tupperware and spices. The location is perfect - the famous UNESCO Albert Docks and Beatles museum are a 5-8 minute walk down to the Mersey, and the massive outdoor shopping center, Liverpool One, is also a 5-minute walk away. The city is very walkable and there are dozens of pubs, cafes, restaurants, and wonderful buildings to keep your smart phone busy taking pics. Even the locals we interacted with said that our location was perfect for visiting and "walking" Liverpool. If you need the train or bus, they're within 5-8 minutes as well. We already look forward to our next visit!

You will find everything you need, the owner has thought of everything to make your stay memorable. We have stayed here twice...and look forward to returning soon. Highly recommended.
