MAL MAISON LIVERPOOL(CITY BREAK)
When I announced to my friends and family that I had decided on a city break the guessing began would it be Barcelona, Madrid, even London? When I announced that my choice was Liverpool some 40 mins away there were gasped of amazement!!
I drove through and booked into the very lovely MAL MAISONdown by the river and my very comfortable room had amazing views of the Pier Head and the wonderful buildings surrounding the area.
Liverpool has changed so much since I lived there some 30 years ago and it was good to have time to wander, have a ride on the Big Wheel and a tour on the yellow Duckmarine which is a unique 1 hour amphibious tour of the city. I strolled around Albert Dock and took in some culture at the Tate.
Dinner in the restaurant at the MAL MAISON was a very interesting affair. The design was very modern and young very efficient staff were great.
Value for money is top of the list.
Fiona, the sommellier, took such pride in showing me her "wine room" and giving me a tour of the private dining rooms. The Boudoir which can be used for private parties, is dark and intimate with a beautiful chandelier, and the other dining room which has views right into the very modern kitchen and is complete with plasma screens was also lovely.
The all important highlight was the food, scallops which were served on a bed of cucumber were really fresh and delicious, and the main course of Swordfish served with a tomato olive and caper salsa was to die for.
I resisted a dessert although the sweet menu was extensive as I was off to a cocktail party at the home of AMANDA MOSS who is the editor of LIFESTYLE MONTHLY which was a fabulous evening and was filmed by MTV showing all the beautiful people of Liverpool.
After my evening back to the MAL MAISON and an interesting feature is a yellow submarine which is suspended from the ceiling and can be seen from each floor.
All in all a very interesting and enjoyable city break to be recommended.
IF YOU DO A JOB YOU LOVE, YOU WILL NEVER DO A DAYS WORK IN YOUR LIFE!!
