Caro short stay Liverpool | hotel review

As I live so close to Liverpool, it's not often that I stay overnight in the city - I usually just don't need to. But when the team over at Caro gave me the opportunity to come and stay at one of their short stay lettings, I had to say yes. I made plans to catch up with some friends who live in South Liverpool, and headed over to the city.

Caro short stay lettings

There are two locations to choose from when booking a short stay with Caro - the Parker Street apartments, and the old Bridewell. Both are great but offer very different things. Parker Street has various one bedroom apartments and studio apartments; they're pet friendly with kitchenettes, and all have a flat screen TV. On the other hand the Bridewell has traditional hotel rooms rather than apartments, with twin and double rooms as well as a couple of studios that have kitchenettes. The Bridewell also has a fitness centre and a shared lounge area. Both locations offer free WiFi, too.

Caro short stay - Parker Street

We were booked into a one bedroom apartment at the Parker Street site, and we stopped off at M&S on the way to get a couple of beers, some tortilla chips and of course, some dips. Check in was easy - you get buzzed in after letting them know you're there via intercom, and head up in the lift or via the stairs to where the reception is. I signed my name and we got our keys and that was that!

The apartment itself was stunning - really clean and white and bright with a grey and yellow colour scheme, which is entirely my dream aesthetic. There was a bottle of prosecco waiting for us on arrival, which is a perk of booking direct with Caro themselves; we popped it open and enjoyed it with our chips and dip while we waited for the England women's world cup game to kick off. We had a living room area which had the kitchenette as well as a table and two chairs, a sofa and the TV; the views aren't anything spectacular, but it's nice to see the city from a different angle!

The bed was comfortable, the temperature was fine, the bathroom was clean AND the shower had good water pressure which sounds like such a boring thing to comment on but I hate those showers that just trickle out!

All in all, my stay at the Caro short stay apartment on Parker Street was top notch; prices vary but you can often get rooms for under £40, which is incredible for such a nice place to stay in Liverpool city centre. Big thanks to Caro for inviting me to stay at your stunning gaff, I'll definitely be back if I find myself looking for somewhere to stay in the city.
