A hotel that is a £1m extension of a popular Anfield pub is preparing to open its doors in a few weeks’ time.
The 115-bedroom Sandon Hotel is an expansion of the Sandon Pub, which is an official Liverpool Football Club hospitality partner, situated a stone’s throw from the ground itself.
Owner Kate Stewart has invested into extending the building to create the new hotel, designed with the football club in mind.
Signed memorabilia line the walls and deep red hues dominate the colour scheme.
The bedrooms feature pods, and vary in capacity, sleeping between six and ten people.
Commenting on the hotel’s progress, Stewart said: “I’m delighted to see The Sandon Hotel coming together. We’re implementing the finishing touches and in just a few weeks it will welcome its first guests meaning that the pub and hotel combined will offer the complete experience.
“I’m also thrilled that the hotel has contributed to the local area. We have used local businesses, locally sourced materials and created jobs. It’s great to be able to give something back to Anfield and the wider Liverpool area.”
The Sandon Pub welcomes over 5,000 match goers and football supporters each time Liverpool play a home game.
