30 James Street brought to market for £12.5m

30 James Street, a hotel in the heart of Liverpool city centre, has been brought to market with a guide price in excess of £12.5m.

The property, known as the “home of the Titanic”, having been the headquarters of the White Star Shipping Line, comprises 63 bedrooms along with the Carpathia Champagne bar and restaurant on the seventh floor.

The property also comprises an outdoor terrace with views of the Mersey River and Liverpool Waterfront.

The hotel also houses a grand hall, providing extensive conference and banqueting facilities, as well as a spa with three treatment rooms and an indoor swimming pool.

The sale of the hotel follows the appointment of Savills as fixed charge receivers in April 2020.

During the first Covid-19 lockdown, the property underwent an “extensive” refurbishment to overhaul the entire property, creating a standout, newly designed hotel, allowing the business to recover upon reopening.

Tom Cunningham, hotels director at Savills Manchester, said: “This sale offers a rare chance to acquire a prime city centre hotel and historic landmark, in one of the UK’s most popular destinations.
