LEVERHULME CELEBRATES AN ELEVENTY-FIRST BIRTHDAY!

18th September 2018

The historic Grade 11 listed building which is now the stunning Leverhulme Hotel will be 111 years old on 1st November 2018.  It was opened on 1st November 1907 by Lady Lever.

As part of Port Sunlight’s Heritage open day on September 14th, over 100 visitors were welcomed throughout the day and treated to a short-guided tour of the building

Staff at the super-stylish four-star Leverhulme Hotel, which was originally the Cottage Hospital for Port Sunlight Village, entered into the nostalgic spirit by dressing up in uniforms similar to those worn by the very first Cottage Hospital staff back in 1907, including Matron, Nurses, ‘Tweenies’ (old-fashioned term for a maid who also assisted the cook), Porter and even a pair of Chimney sweeps. Food & Beverage Manager Sheridan Green even re-created a famous early Edwardian picture of Matron on a bicycle at the front of the cottage hospital.

For anyone wanting more detailed information in a more relaxed format, Leverhulme Hotel runs a popular monthly guided History tour with refreshments and pastries at 10.30 am, a comprehensive History tour from 11 am to 12.45 pm followed by delicious Afternoon Tea in the classically elegant Riviera restaurant. The tour includes information about the building and the area from the earliest times, and how it is linked to two of the region’s most influential families who helped put Port Sunlight on the world map.

Leverhulme Hotel, with 23 contemporary bedrooms and suites is one of three luxury hotels in the Contessa Hotels Group, the other two being the five star Hillbark Hotel in Frankby, and four star Haigh Hall in Wigan.
