A hotel in Liverpool housed in the former home of Beatles manager Brian Epstein has gone on the market as its owner looks to retire.
Epstein House Hotel is decorated with Beatles memorabilia throughout, including a piano played by Sir Paul McCartney and is owned by Patrick Duggan.
The nine-bedroom hotel is up for sale with Blacks Business Brokers with a guide price of £895k.
Duggan said: “I have been looking for a buyer to take over Epstein House for a little while so I can retire. It’s a really special property, and we have some incredible Beatles memorabilia here, but you could argue that before the area was regenerated it wasn’t an attractive investment for people – I don’t believe that’s the case anymore.”
The hotel is located in a three-storey detached property a stone’s throw from Liverpool FC’s Anfield stadium.
Alongside its bedrooms, Epstein House has a fully licensed bar, lounge, dining facilities and a car park with 20 spaces.
The hotel experienced some well-documented teething troubles in its early years but underwent a transformation following its appearance in 2014 on Alex Polizzi’s popular Channel 5 show, The Hotel Inspector.
The hotel, and its owner, have since also appeared on the Channel 4 programme Four in a Bed.
John Gaskell, director at Blacks Business Brokers, said, “Epstein House has always been a stunning property with an incredible backstory but arguably in the past it has been held back by its surroundings. Now, however, the local area has been transformed and, with Liverpool having just won the Champions League, it represents a great opportunity in a district that has renewed self-confidence and is really on the up.”
