Quirky and fun hotel with a rock 'n' roll attitude
Posted Sep 1, 2016
Arriving around 9pm on a Friday night we found the bar/lounge already starting to buzz with a largely young crowd being entertained by a DJ. At reception we were greeted by a lovely lady who was very helpful and welcoming, giving us info regarding breakfast, bar opening times etc.
The whole interior of the hotel is an explosion of pop-art, faux regency detailing, kitsch and decadence. Our journey from ground to third floor took a good ten minutes as we stopped at every turn of the stairs to take it all in.
Our 'Soul Supreme' room was a homage to Motown records and artists, decorated in deep purples and gold with many artist photos, record covers & reproduction posters dotted around the walls. The room was spacious with a bench seat / sofa and coffee table which had a selection of Motown and related LPs and a portable record player! The bed was a metal framed style and was fitted with a very comfortable mattress & pillows. The bathroom was compact and clean with a shower but no bath and had dispensers of upmarket REN toiletries. Also there were tea & coffee making facilities, a small TV plus a fan making it ideal for a short stay.
We stayed one night only but didn't have breakfast so I can't comment on the quality of food, however breakfast is only included in your room price when you book direct with Pelirocco
