Yorkshire born, Dave Brewitt has lived in Liverpool for 32 years. He first came to the city to study Engineering at Liverpool University and never left.
He is founder, owner and chief executive of Hope Street Hotel in Liverpool, opening the boutique city hotel in 2003. He designed and built the original 48 bedroom hotel with a restaurant, London Carriage Works. In 2009, the self-taught builder expanded the hotel further, again designing and building an additional 89 rooms.
The latest expansion, set to open in May 2020 has all been designed and built by Dave once again – this project slightly more complex than the last – and will see an additional 62 new rooms and suites, an urban spa, a new gym, a private cinema, and a new fifth-floor event space. Since opening, Hope Street Hotel has grown three-fold in the last 15 years and has become a firm favourite amongst locals and visitors to Liverpool alike.
Dave is also the founder, joint owner and joint MD of Carpenter Investments Group, a property development and property management company, which was used to create Hope Street Hotel.
