The Fab Four-star hotel

Beatles fans are already travelling the long and winding road to a hotel opening in Liverpool on Friday. Thousands of Fab Four fans have made inquiries about staying at the Hard Days Night Hotel, even before it has opened.

The IoS gained exclusive access to the four-star, 110-bed hotel near the Cavern Club where they first shot to fame. Friends, relatives and colleagues have contributed to the unique boutique hotel. Paintings in every room tell the Beatles story, as well as artwork from Paul Ygartua, an art-school friend of Lennon, and Klaus Voorman, designer of the 'Revolver' cover and member of the Plastic Ono Band.
