Liverpool hotel chain Phoenix Collection has opened Pilgrim House following a £500,000 development on the historic Pilgrim Street.

The property, which sleeps up to 10 guests, boasts four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a modern living and kitchen space and a jacuzzi being installed in the next month.

Pilgrim House is directly adjacent to the historic The Pilgrim pub, which opened in the 1980s after spells as an art gallery, a paint warehouse and even a chocolate factory.

Liverpool firm EW Developments, which owns The Phoenix Collection, was formed by long-term best friends James Winters and Rob Edwards in 2019.

EW Developments transformed The Phoenix from an abandoned Victorian building into a luxury boutique hotel, and the firm has since been enlisted to work on several conservation developments, including the stunning transformation of the 136-year-old Our Lady of Good Help church in Wavertree into luxury apartments.

EW Developments co-owner James Winters said: "This is a unique development in a historic part of Liverpool city centre. The hallmark of The Phoenix Collection is the luxury finishes, and Pilgrim House is no different. I’m really excited for the installation of the jacuzzi, as it will be the finishing touch to a stunning development.

“All of our properties and hotels are affordable luxury, and Pilgrim House is, in my opinion, a first-class price for the amenities, location and standard of living being offered.

"The history of Pilgrim Street is amazing and I am excited to help offer new memories to an iconic area of Liverpool."
