The 110-room, four-star hotel, situated near the rebuilt Cavern Club, where the local lads got their feet wet, does have some nice touches, says The Times.

But it also has a "claustrophobic" wedding chapel called Two of Us – "an airless mirrored room accessed only by a highly impractical spiral staircase," the paper says – and a basement-level, guru-themed hideaway called Hari's Bar, "decked out with the sort of artifacts commonly found at kitsch spas."
That settles it. We'll wait for the grand opening of the She Came in Through the Bathroom Window Travelodge.
