The Grand Party Hotel goes through the lobby and behind the doors to reveal the secret life of one of the most popular and extraordinary hotels in Britain. The Shankly Hotel is situated in the heart of Liverpool and people flock there from all over the UK to celebrate important moments – everything from birthdays to baby showers, graduation parties to hen and stag weekends, weddings to anniversary celebrations and even divorces. What makes the hotel unique are its party rooms on the top floor. Billed as affordable luxury for all, these enormous, individually themed, communal rooms sleep up to 24 guests in multiple beds.
Popular with large groups of fun-loving friends and families who want to celebrate in style, each room has its own extraordinary décor: pink flamingos upside down on the ceiling, lions’ heads on the walls, as well as multiple double beds, communal jacuzzis and Roman Baths. Behind every door is a very different story. In The Grand Party Hotel we get to know the guests from the moment they check in to the moment they leave. The reasons for visiting the hotel are sometimes heart-warming and moving, sometimes celebratory, but always deeply personal.
