Did you know that there are over 20,000 B&Bs in the UK, and that they generate over £2 billion annually to the UK economy? This is something that we think is worth celebrating, that’s why we are participating in National B&B Week 2019!
Mere Brook House has recently celebrated it's 10 year anniversary, and in this past year alone we have hosted countless weddings, celebrations and business meetings and welcomed hundreds of guests, including The Great British Bake Offs Prue Leith. We have also opened our doors to a BBC film crew, who used the house to film a 90 minute drama named "Care" which starred Sheridan Smith and Alison Steadman.
In October 2017 the Mayor of Wirral unveiled a blue plaque in recognition of the incredible Ann Davison, the first female to sail the Atlantic single handed. Ann lived at Mere Brook for four years and the house features in one of her books – in fact she refers to living at Mere Brook as some of her happiest times.
Over the past 10 years we have been honoured to win numerous awards including Bed & Breakfast of the Year and The Independent Business Award at the Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards 2017 and after taking a year out we are delighted to be shortlisted at The Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards 2019 in two categories, Hotel of the Year and Independent Tourism Business of the Year. In 2015 we were shortlisted for The National Tourism awards run by Visit England in the bed and breakfast category. Last year we were also awarded a Special Certificate of Excellence from Tripadvisor to celebrate 5 years of consistently excellent reviews!
So from the 18th to the 24th of March 2019 I hope you will join us in applauding all the great things that independent hoteliers contribute to the hospitality industry!
