Yellow Submarine Themed Floating Hotel Opens in Liverpool

Yellow Submarine Themed Floating Hotel Opens in Liverpool -

A new hotel based on the Beatles' classic 'Yellow Submarine' has opened in the Fab Four's hometown, reports UltimateClassicRock (via Daily Mail).

The floating hotel, which is a 80ft narrowboat moored at Albert Dock in Liverpool, can accommodate up to eight people. The concept is the branchild of businessman Alfie Bubbles and has been painted to mirror the image of the iconic vessel, which also featured in the 1968 film of the same name.

The hotel features an original scooter from the film Quadrophenia which sits in the psychedelic lounge, while the three bedrooms - boasting decor inspired by the 1969 album - all come fitted with 3D televisions, computers and wi-fi.

Rooms are priced at £149 per night, from Monday to Thursday, and £299 and £350 from Friday to Sunday.

The boat was previously used in 90's thriller The Hunt for the Red October, starring Sean Connery, which was partly filmed in Liverpool waters.

Yellow Submarine, based on the song by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, follows the Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, as they travel to a city under the sea to confront the music hating Blue Meanies.
