TripAdvisor said: "The Resident Liverpool is a delightful spot with a convenient location that stands out for its tasteful decor, spacious rooms, and personalised TVs. Not to mention, it's housed in an interesting building that's been sympathetically modernised.

"The welcoming and friendly staff create a comfortable environment, and the spotless rooms provide a sense of security. The hotel's central position makes it easy to explore nearby attractions, while the first-class restaurant and happy hour make for an enjoyable time.

"Beautifully decorated public areas and quality lobby furniture contribute to the overall charm of this well-located establishment."

The Resident, refurbished in 2020, is located in a historical warehouse dating back to the 1800s. It features 106 rooms, each equipped with a mini-kitchen, unique artwork, special edition Paul Smith Anglepoise lamps, Nespresso machines, and a private fridge and microwave.

David Orr, CEO of Resident Hotels said: “This year’s award is a testament to the exceptional sustained guest experience provided by our entire team.

"It is not only a fantastic recognition for our beloved brand, but also reinforces our outstanding reputation which we cherish.

"Especially, as we look forward to opening The Resident Edinburgh later this year and welcoming more guests from around the world through our doors.”
