The port city of Liverpool on the River Mersey, reborn as weekend-break stalwart after its year as European Capital of Culture 2008, has become a popular spa break. It’s no surprise. Compact and fun-loving, Liverpool has plenty to offer, including good rail connections, a host of hotels at different price points and plenty of cheeky Scouse charm.

The city may have acquired something of a reputation for its hedonistic nightlife, dominated by bawdy hen parties, but Liverpool isn’t all Prosecco-popping and pink cowboy hats. While some spa hotels do cater to the rowdier crowd (and are best avoided as such), there are several tranquil escapes for some serious pampering without the hangover. Plus, you can easily combine a spa trip with a cultural attraction, including live music or a sporting fixture. From signature treatments to wellness breaks, here’s our guide to the best spa hotels in the Liverpool city area.

Hope Street Hotel

Liverpool, England

8
Telegraph expert rating

Since Hope St opened its doors in 2003, Liverpool has seen the arrival of many boutique hotels, small and large, but this remains one of the best. Chic Scandi-style rooms, excellent food, superb service and stunning views from the upper floors combine with a choice location to make it an excellent city bolthole. It has also had a recent refurbishment to include a very impressive new spa with slick indoor pool, outdoor vitality pool, sauna, steam room and great products by Temple Spa used in treatments. There’s even a space for manicures and pedicures by brand Leighton Denny – ideal for a pre-night out spruce.

Doubletree by Hilton Liverpool Hotel & Spa

Liverpool, England

Telegraph expert rating

This stately Victorian building – originally built as the Liverpool Conservative Club and now a hotel – combines contemporary touches with the genteel feel of a bygone era. The spa is an urban oasis with a range of treatments using Elemis products. There’s also a pool and fitness centre with day-packages available. The Koukash Bar & Restaurant, with its racing-memorabilia theme, is the spot for all-day dining, including steaks, sharing plates and a tasty breakfast buffet. There’s live music on weekends to accompany the modern British menu.

Titanic Hotel

Liverpool, England

8
Telegraph expert rating

A former warehouse turned into a momentous hotel, the Titanic in Stanley Dock is a striking, supremely spacious alternative to Liverpool’s city-centre hotels. The interiors have plenty of maritime-inspired character, complemented by soaring ceilings and vast corridors. The most notable facility is the inviting subterranean Maya Blue spa (accessed for an additional £20), complete with hydrotherapy pool, sauna and steam room and relaxation lounge. Immensely spacious rooms (and bathrooms) offer the pared-down appeal of a slick loft apartment.

Radisson Blu Hotel, Liverpool

Liverpool, England

8
Telegraph expert rating

A 10-minute walk stroll north of the city centre proper, this slick modern hotel attracts business and leisure travellers alike with its airy interiors, great breakfasts, and extensive health club complete with River Mersey views. The décor throughout is tasteful and modern, if slightly corporate in parts. The hotel’s extensive facilities make up for the lacklustre look, and include an Elemis spa, an indoor pool, a whirlpool bath, a sauna, a steam room, a fitness room with classes, and a large gym.

Formby Hall Golf Resort and Spa

Formby, England

7
Telegraph expert rating

This sprawling resort hotel is located near the prestigious tee-offs at the nearby Royal Birkdale Golf Club, and has rail connections to Liverpool Moorfields. The amenities are the main draw, with a full set of leisure facilities, notably a spa with a vast array of ESPA treatments, bike hire for forays into the nearby National Trust reserve and – of course – a host of golf options. Driving will open up local attractions, such as Knowsley Safari Park and Liverpool’s Albert Dock – the latter around 30 minutes away.
