Hotel Indigo, Liverpool
Graham Clark, Features Writer
Hotel Indigo
The Indigo brand is growing all the time in the UK with new hotels opening in Durham, Stratford Upon Avon this year. The Liverpool Indigo was one of the first to open in the chain a few years ago.

Lounge area
It is a clean and friendly hotel, close to all that there is to see in the city. The welcome was typically northern friendliness. It was a cold day outside and the warm welcome matched the warm atmosphere.

The rooms are of varying sizes and most look out onto a quadrangle so unless you get a room on the top floor that faces West you will not get much of a view. Like all Indigo hotels the room comes with a fridge that has complimentary bottles of wine, beer, soft drinks, crisps and chocolate bars.

Bedroom showing bathroom
The bed was very comfy, the bathroom although small had a rain shower and came with plentiful toiletries. The TV had all the satellite channels and the Wi Fi was fast. The wardrobe didn't have too much hanging space and there wasn't a huge drop for ladies dresses. The tea and coffee and shortbread all added to the experience.

Air conditioning was good but the windows didn't open, although not all rooms are like this.

Bedroom
The hotel has an arrangement with a nearby secure car park where 24 hours parking costs £8.00.

Meals are taken in Marco's restaurant on site. Even on a Sunday night it was busy, the service was excellent and the ambience one of the best I have felt in a Marco's.

My selection of English Charcuterie was a good selection of meats served with fresh bread, whilst my main of Steak and Ale Pie seemed like it had been freshly made and although shallow was very tasty.

My partner went for the Traditional Roast Beef and seasonal vegetables which was well presented and just what was needed on a cold winters night.

Desserts of Raspberry Mille Fuille, Meringue and Raspberry Coulis was the highlight of the meal for her: light, tasty and 'moreish' whilst my Box Tree Eton Mess (named after the Ilkley restaurant where Marco worked in his early days), was sweet, sticky and scrumptious.

Continental breakfast bar
Breakfast is taken in Marco's too. English breakfast is cooked to order whilst there is a huge Continental buffet offering. Everything tasted good though service did not seem as quick as at the evening meal.

English breakfast
All round though a good quality hotel, friendly staff, clean, comfortable, welcoming and homely, plus there is a good Marco's restaurant on site.
