Our Biggest Ever Giveaway: Celebrating 10 Years of Signature Living

When Signature Living opened the Arthouse Hotel in late 2016, the Signature brand was only just getting started.

But now, the Hollywood-themed hotel is part of a country-wide hospitality empire that started right here in Liverpool.

Growing from just four serviced apartments with a personalized touch in Liverpool’s city centre to a national hotelier, Signature Living has had 10 years of wild dreams and spectacular launches.

We’ve taken on near-impossible restoration projects, preserved iconic hero’s legacies  and hosted magical weddings in breathtaking venues, while also ensuring that the party-lovers of Liverpool continue to enjoy jaw-dropping, unique venues at the heart of the city.

Safe to say, it’s been a spectacular few years. And after a decade of success, we’re pleased to announce that we’re celebrating with our #biggestevergiveaway…

Two Years of The Arthouse Hotel

Building on our previous success with party accommodation in the city, the movie-themed party pads at Arthouse gave a brand new, star-studded side to Signature’s Liverpool venues.

After the glamourous, celebrity-filled launch of the Arthouse bar (now Mulholland) which introduced Seel Street to a Signature night out, the hotel opened its doors and offered luxurious, film-themed party suites to the city’s most glamorous girl squads and party-loving man packs.

The Wizard of Oz room at Arthouse Hotel

Whether you want to follow the yellow brick road to our Wizard of Oz room, or have a night of Rock Horror Show drama, our themed suites offer luxurious accommodation with incredible faculties including spa baths and ultra-comfortable beds.

And with the opening of our stunning Skyline Suites in 2017, the Arthouse had its own penthouse party pad, offering accommodation for groups of up to 12 and giving them exclusive access to an in-room roman bath for the ultimate pool parties looking out over Liverpool’s beautiful skyline.

The summer holidays have arrived! And at Arthouse Hotel, we’re offering tired-out teachers an unmissable break.

One of the best hotels in Liverpool, our Six Week Treats offer means you can stay in style without breaking the bank!

The Best of Hotel Offers for Teachers

Our 6 Week Treats Offer (£99 per person)

6 weeks treats

Funny and Most Inspiring Teacher Movies

Arthouse Hotel is a unique movie themed hotel in the heart of Liverpool. And to celebrate our new offer for teachers, we thought we’d take a look at some of the best, funniest and most inspiring movies featuring teachers!

Grease

teacher movies

Amidst the romance, scandals and singing and dancing is Principal McGee, trying her best to keep it all under control in Grease!

At Arthouse Hotel, why not stay in our Grease themed room? This spacious room sleeps up to 6 guests and is fitted with fantastic facilities including an en suite with large whirlpool bath.

Expect to have chills multiplying when you step inside this spectacular space.

Dead Poets Society

teacher movies

It’s safe to say that Dead Poets Society has inspired many to follow the path to teaching. The 1989 drama saw Robin Williams blow audiences away as lovable Mr. Keating.

Some of the most memorable moments of Mr Keating’s teaching saw him jumping on desks, daring the students to think for themselves and plenty of choruses of “O Captain, my Captain’.

And though the working day may not quite live up to the romanticism of Dead Poets Society, it’s safe to say this is a movie treasured by educators and young people inspired to start their career.

Matilda

teacher movies

Without a doubt one of the best childhood movies ever made, Miss Honey is arguably the underrated star of Matilda. Audiences are enchanted by her softly spoken words of wisdom, pretty woodland cottage and of course, her heartwarming belief in Matilda.

While we’re sure Miss Honey has inspired many to teach over the decades, we certainly hope the same can’t be said for Miss Trunchbull!

School of Rock

teacher movies

For music teachers, School of Rock may just be the ultimate movie. Starring comedic genius Jack Black, School of Rock sees Dewey Finn pose as a substitute teacher at a private elementary school.

This iconic teacher film is a timeless favourite and it’s easy to see why! The feel-good movie is filled with fun, with plenty of songs to keep your toes-tapping along the way.

Harry Potter

teacher movies

When he wasn’t marching through the corridors with a flowing cloak and judgemental frown, he was busy making Harry miserable…or so it seemed.

From the first Harry Potter film to the last, Professor Snape went from scariest teacher to the best-loved. Fans fell in love with his dry wit and determination to protect Harry, all in the name of love for Lily Potter.

Mean Girls

teacher movies

Mean Girls is a modern classic when it comes to timeless teen movies. Written by Tina Fey, the talented comedian also stepped in front of the camera as witty maths teacher Ms. Norbury.

When ‘Burn Book’ chaos unfolds, it’s fair to say that Ms. Norbury saves the day with the iconic line, “raise your hand if you’ve ever been personally victimized by Regina George”.

We hope to see you soon at Arthouse Hotel! It’ll be a summer holidays treat that you won’t forget. To enquire further or to book your stay, you can reach us on 0151 601 8801.

The Highlights of Our Love Island Quiz at Arthouse Liverpool

Last week, we played host to our very own Love Island quiz at Arthouse Hotel Liverpool. The summer fun was hosted by Love Island’s Katie Salmon and Signature Living’s very own Roger Jonas.

The night saw fans of ITV2’s biggest show gather to put their Love Island knowledge to the test! And we certainly threw in some fabulous prizes along the way.

Love Island Liverpool Quiz

Roger and Katie put fans through their paces with a variety of quiz rounds. Love Island winner Cara De La Hoyde and fellow Islanders of the past Gabby, Georgia and Tyne-Lexy stayed at Signature Living’s Shankly Hotel just a few weeks ago. And during their stay, we filmed some exclusive videos for our video quiz round.

Roger Jonas and Katie Salmon

We also served up a colourful range of refreshing Love Island cocktails. Our eclectic menu featured the Do Bits Society, Megan the Snake and My Type on Paper. What more could a Love Island fan want?!

Our colourful creations went down a treat with our quiz guests. Poured to perfection by our cocktail experts, Arthouse Hotel’s Mulholland Bar is one of the best spots for cocktails in Liverpool.

Of course, we couldn’t let our Love Island quiz-goers miss an episode! In between the fun, we showcased the latest antics of the villa on our big screen.

The drama saw Wes save Megan and everyone’s favourite love-to-hate Islander Adam pack his bags for home. It’s safe to say we had our very own commentary of cheers and boos as the dumping took place.

Amazing Love Island Quiz Prizes

At Signature Living, we never do things by halves. So, we went all out with amazing prizes for our quiz winners. The first prize saw our lucky winners bag a stay in our luxury Skyline Suite.

The perfect party atmosphere, the stylish spot features everything from a large pool-style bath to outdoor terrace looking out across the city.

The second prize offered the winner a romantic date night meal at Liverpool’s iconic Alma de Cuba bar and restaurant. And last but not least, winners of our third prize got their hands on some Love Island themed goodies!

Celebrating the Best Summer Movies of All Time

This summer, why not join us for a girls weekend away in Liverpool at Arthouse Hotel? With weekend availability this August, don’t miss out on the fun!

Arthouse is a movie-themed hotel in the heart of Liverpool nightlife. The perfect spot for a sleepover or night out with the girls, what better way to spend a summer evening?

Plus, we have a fabulous weekend offer in store for you that you won’t want to miss…

Our Favourite Summer Movies

To get you in the spirit for a summer stay in Liverpool, we thought we’d celebrate the season with some of the best summer movies of all time.

Roman Holiday (1953)

A charming tale of summer romance, Roman Holiday had to be on our list. Starring the timeless Audrey Hepburn opposite Gregory Peck, the romantic classic saw Audrey win an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance.

The Seven Year Itch (1955)

Starring the one and only Marilyn Monroe, The Seven year Itch is another of our favourites. The dazzling Hollywood classic brought audiences the iconic scene of Monroe standing on the subway grate in her famous white dress.

To Catch a Thief (1955)

A sun-kissed Hitchock classic, To Catch a Thief stars the one and only Grace Kelly opposite the iconic Cary Grant. The alluring thriller takes audiences on a journey of suspense and romance with the glamorous backdrop of the French Riviera.

Stand By Me (1986)

A coming-of-age comedy by Rob Reiner, Stand By Me brings Stephen King’s novella The Body to life. The heartwarming film is a summer classic. Following the friendship of four boys from a small town in Oregon, viewers are brought along on an unforgettable hike in search of a dead body.

 The Parent Trap (1998)

Starring Lindsay Lohan (opposite Lindsay Lohan!) The Parent Trap is a family favourite when it comes to childhood summer movies. The feel-good film features everything a summer film should do, from summer camp chaos to lakeside mischief. Not forgetting, there’s a fantastic use of Beatles hit ‘Here Comes the Sun’.

Grease (1978)

It goes without saying that Grease is on our list of the best summer movies ever made! The musical comedy starts with summer dreams ripped at the scenes as the holiday romance of Danny and Sandy comes to an end. And though heading back to school is usually a bit of a downer, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John keep the fun alive alongside an all-singing and all-dancing cast.

Jaws

Last but certainly not least, our list of summer movies wouldn’t be complete without Steven Spielberg’s iconic thriller, Jaws. Shot along the sandy shores of Martha’s Vineyard, the must-see summer blockbuster of 1975 became the highest-grossing film of all time until the release of Star Wars. Arguably the best bit of all, the spine tingling score compromises of just two alternating notes.

Things That Always Happen on a Girls’ Night Out

A girls’ night out, you’ve got to love them! It’s a sacred ritual that is beneficial to both the mind and body.

Every night is slightly different, but you all know that the following things can and will occur each ladies’ night, without fail.

The struggle to assemble the gang

via GIPHY

You all live all over the gaff, but you’ll cross countries and continents to get together for that all important night on the town together.

Organising the date will be tricky and you’ll go through a thousand WhatsApp messages, but you and the girls will get there in the end.

You take at least 3 hours to get ready

via GIPHY

Once the night is decided, you’ve been planning outfits for weeks, but you still have no idea what to wear.

And of course, you”ll take at least half a day to get ready, because we all know it’s one of the best parts of the night.

One thousand selfies

via GIPHY

Before you leave the house, two hundred pictures have already been taken… and most of them are identical to each other.

The perfect group photo on a girls’ night is a must!

Too many pre-drinks

via GIPHY

We all know pre-drinks is usually more fun that the actual night out, which usually results in you drinking far too much.

You’ll definitely play Never Have I Ever, Ring of Fire and have rambling conversations about the last hilarious time you got drunk together.

Belting out your favourite tunes

via GIPHY

In your heads, you are all Beyoncé. To the neighbours, there’s a very high possibility that a whole bunch of cats are being strangled next door.

No one is ever ready for the taxi

via GIPHY

Quick! The taxi man is getting angry!

There’s always one that can’t handle her drink

via GIPHY

Time to put on the ‘act sober’ routine for the bouncers.

Synchronised dancing

via GIPHY

One could be dancing solidly for about three hours on a girls’ night out. Sure it’s practically like going to the gym?

Creepy men EVERYWHERE

via GIPHY

Just hovering. Not really dancing, not saying anything, but occasionally trying to touch people inappropriately.

Shots!

via GIPHY

Always seem like the best idea you’ve ever had. The you of tomorrow can deal with the consequences.

Group bathroom trips

via GIPHY

You couldn’t possibly brave the bathroom alone?!

Drunkenly reapplying makeup

via GIPHY

Just a little touch up can easily end in tragedy.

Making friends with other girls in the toilets

via GIPHY

You’re sure to unite with other girl gangs in the loos and compliment them all on their appearance.

Someone will cry

via GIPHY

It’s just bound to happen. We don’t know why and no one can really remember, but it always happens.

Your shoes will betray you

via GIPHY

You’ll be praying to the feet gods for some kind of relief by the end of the night.

Drunk texting someone’s ex

via GIPHY

Always seems like a great idea … never is.

A greasy takeaway at 4am

via GIPHY

Carbs are your friend.

Downing glasses of water together

via GIPHY

You’ll always desperately try and counter act the inevitable hangover with pints of H20.

The hangover from hell

via GIPHY

You wake up with a seriously dry mouth. You can barely swallow, but the prospect of getting out of bed for water is daunting. You’ll then start asking google if you can die from a hangover.

Group message debrief the next day

via GIPHY

Did I really do that?

X has tagged you in 400 photos

via GIPHY

That terrifying ping of your phone and the utter dread of finding out what you looked like all night.

You may think that life is not worth living once you’ve checked off all our recommendations but at least you’ll have a life to live.

Here are the top 13 things to avoid if you are female and in a horror movie.

Mini Skirts

That’s right ladies as soon as you get those pins out its bye bye.

Those who dare to bare always get picked off first, see Sydney’s best friend Tatum in Scream.

Note her stylish little mini skirt and compare it to Sidney’s casual jeans and t-shirt look.

The legs came out and Tatum bit the dust in a grisly garage door related incident.

Running/Falling

For some reason, if you are a female in a horror movie you instantly forget how to run the moment your life depends on it.

Your legs don’t work any more and you will always pick the most treacherous escape route into dark foreboding woods.

Our top tip for survival walk, don’t run, there’s less chance of falling and killers always have a slow scary walk anyway.

Baby Sitting

Kids are a nightmare at the best of times but, guaranteed, if you are a female in a horror movie you should avoid babysitting like the plague.

As soon as you put those tots to bed and put on a spooky movie, a masked madman will appear at the window ready to attack.

No matter what it pays just say no to babysitting.

Cooking

It’s always the way in a scary movie.

The moment you pop something in the oven or start making popcorn to watch a movie the psycho killer will call, knock on the door or chase you through the house wielding their weapon of choice.

The best advice we could give is order a takeaway.

Open Water

Is there anything more frightening for a female in a horror movie than an open stretch of water?

Who knows What Lies Beneath the murky deep, could be a giant killer crocodile or the body of someone long presumed dead come back to life.

Either way, don’t be tempted into a lonely boat ride on any open water unless you plan on getting wet and dead.

Boys

Time and time again we see females in horror movies who are shy, single and often virgins survive against all the odds.

As soon as you entertain the notion of a boyfriend he’ll seal your fate.

via GIPHY

Guaranteed he’ll either be the guy who has been bumping off your mates or your dalliance will simply make you a target.

It’s all a lesson to stay innocent and pure for as long as possible, all the girls who just wanna have fun don’t have long in horror movies.

Friends

So far we’ve given you a lot to stay away from, in fact, any female in a horror movie should instantly write off having a social life altogether.

via GIPHY

No one can be trusted and in particular your nearest and dearest friends.

“Everyones a suspect” as Randy so eloquently puts it in Scream and as poor Natalie found out all too late in Urban Legend.

Woods

From the fear of the unknown in Blair Witch to flesh-eating virus’s in Cabin Fever and even murderous inbred yocals in Wrong Turn, the woods can be a terrifying place to be for a female in a horror movie.

So unless you are attending a teddy bears picnic we suggest avoiding all heavily wooded areas for the foreseeable future.

Phones

Just let the machine pick it up!

We suggest sticking to texting, emailing or even smoke signals, but just don’t pick up the phone.

Rain

Okay so the rain is usually just an excuse to get our leading lady looking wet and sexy, however pouring rain usually makes things scarier too.

Think slippier surfaces, reduced visibility and you might catch a cold.

On the plus side, it does a good job washing all those pesky blood stains from your clothes.

Showers

Another fine excuse to get the leading lady wet and naked, shower scenes are almost mandatory in the best horror movies.

via GIPHY

Of course, if you happen to be a female in a horror movie it’s better to just have a stand-up wash as we all know it won’t end well once the water goes on.

Alcohol and Drugs

Maintaining purity and innocence is key to surviving a horror movie if you are female.

Under absolutely no circumstances are you advised to consume alcohol or any other mind-altering substances.

Once you’ve crossed that line then its the end of the line for you.

Driving

As soon as you get behind the wheel, unless you are fleeing at the end of the movie, you’ve pretty much signed your death warrant.

via GIPHY

You could find a nasty surprise in the back seat, you could breakdown in a spooky poorly lit road, you could even run over a poor unsuspecting person who you think is dead then dispose of the body with four of your friends only to be haunted by the same person a year later.

So, unless you are pretty sure it’s the end of the movie don’t chance driving and catch the bus.

And that concludes our list of things to avoid if you are a female in a horror movie.
