30 James Street

30 James Street Hotel, which was purchased by RIMC Hotels and Resorts based in Hamburg in May 2023, has been awarded a five star rating following an unannounced visit by Liverpool’s Environmental Health Office.

The venue had previously received a 1* rating prior to RIMC’s takeover and investment with large parts of the report focussing on lack of maintenance work. The team have worked tirelessly in recent months to ensure that all relevant improvements and recommendations were implemented. 

Liam McAuley, General Manager, said: “We are absolutely delighted that the changes we have made to our operation have resulted in 30 James Street receiving a five star rating. Our guests can enjoy top quality food and service in the knowledge that our back of house operation meets the highest standards and scrutiny”.

The owners of the hotel, which is due to close for a multi-million pound refurbishment in late spring this year, have pledged to honour the historic building’s heritage whilst introducing a multi-functional and innovative hospitality offering, meaning 30 James Street is set to become one of Liverpool’s finest hotels when it reopens early in 2025.

Duncan Gray, Managing Director of RIMC (UK), said: “When we took over this magnificent building last year, we pledged to honour its history and to preserve the building for the future as an exciting new hospitality venue. Despite the challenges we have faced in readiness for the full refurbishment, our dedicated team have worked incredibly hard to implement the highest standards at the hotel. This five star rating is testament to the hard work the talented team at 30 James Street have done”.

Once the headquarters of the White Star Line shipping company, where the RMS Titanic was registered, the venue will undergo a complete renovation, covering 10 floors and the plans include a Top Deck Members Club, The Decks – which will accommodate 60 luxuriously furnished bedrooms, The Main Deck Restaurant, Brasserie and Bar, including The Waterline Experience and The Engine Room Bar which will incorporate an exciting unique social dining and live music experience.
