Most ‘About Us’ pages read like a business directory. We want to tell you more of a story.

And we don’t just want to share how we came to be, what you can have for breakfast, or when we put the skirting boards in a few years ago.

We want to give you a feel for the character of our place. Because this character is what our customers buy into, especially those who come back to stay with us.

Read on to find out more.

What sets Breeze apart?

The Great British Bed and Breakfast was once a warm, hospitable environment with a family feel.

Sadly, this idyllic charm is lacking in many of today’s guest houses, particularly those in urban communities.

Staying at a B&B can often be a faceless, soulless experience. You may have stayed at one in the not-too-distant past and found no one present to greet, guide, or reassure you. You may not have even seen your hosts during your stay!

And unless you’re the world’s biggest introvert, this probably isn’t your idea of a pleasant experience.

You most likely want more than a roof over your head if you’ve forked out good money for a guest house. You want to feel welcomed.

That’s where Breeze Guest House comes in. We’re living proof that the traditional B&B isn’t a relic of the past — rather, it’s alive and kicking here in Bootle.

Thankfully, our design, decor, and rooms are more modern (and less clinical) than the B&Bs of yesteryear. But the ambience is the same.

We couldn’t run this place any other way.

We don’t just drop your keys in a box for you to collect and leave you to your own devices. We’re always on hand to help you out, make you feel at home, and leave you with a positive impression of our guest house and Liverpool as a whole.

This hospitality sets us apart from other guest houses in cities across the country.

And if you don’t think Breeze is ‘proper sound’ by the end of your stay (to use a Scouseism), then we haven’t done our job.

The story behind our guest house

To the best of our knowledge, the building we’re in dates back to at least 1830, so it’s around a couple of hundred years old.

It was originally a house belonging to a merchant, as the docks are just down the road, and they rented it out to various tenants over the years.

Since then, it’s been a launderette, then a gym — and, finally, a guest house.

Local entrepreneur Tom Rice (father of Julie, the guest house manager) purchased the building in the mid 90s, and the rest is history.

It’s safe to say this guest house is the result of extensive renovation. Our family spent ten to 15 years rebuilding it from the inside out!

Here are some of the jobs we undertook:

- Painting the house from top to bottom

- Installing skirting boards

- Retiling the flooring throughout the house

- Building the staircase

- Doing all of the woodwork ourselves

- Repaving the front car park

… and there are many more jobs we could add to the list.

We didn’t have YouTube back then, so if we wanted to figure out anything DIY-related, we had to read a book!

We poured our heart and soul into this place for years until it looked exactly as we wanted. Pretty much everything you see in the guest house is an idea we had whilst renovating the building.

That’s what you call a ‘family feel’.

Our breakfast options

We offer a wide range of options to suit everyone. And if you’re a vegetarian or vegan, don’t worry — you can still enjoy a cooked breakfast!

This is available on the weekends between 8 am and 9 am, but we can make special dispensations in certain circumstances. Please let us know before your stay if you’d like breakfast at a different time.

Our standard cooked breakfast consists of bacon, sausages, eggs, hash browns, beans, tomatoes, mushrooms, and black pudding.

For vegetarians, we provide vegetarian sausages, hash browns, eggs, beans, tomatoes, and mushrooms.

For vegans, we cook the mushrooms in olive oil and provide all of the above without the eggs.

If you’d prefer a continental breakfast, this is available throughout the week and includes cereals, croissants, jam, toast, yoghurts, fruit, juice, tea and coffee.
