Hotel Pelirocco Review: why Brighton’s ballsiest boutique hotel remains magnetic to stars and eccentrics
Brighton’s outrageous Hotel Pelirocco hosted yet another legendary celebration last week, with a racaus Monday night party proving they are the only themed hotel where radical individuals and musical mavericks can unwind.
Boutique Hotel Pelirocco, a wild juxtapostion to the meditative waves of Brighton beach, welcomes you…
Eccentric hotel Pelirocco plays host to some very cool cats. With a worldwide reputation and roll appeal attracting international legends and local eccentrics — it truly does ooze cult-social-history.
You might imagine the cosy bar area wouldn’t be large enough to accommodate a large party, but in fact its size just adds to the hotel’s intimate sociable appeal.
Myself and two stary eyed boys found ourselves in the Star Wars room on the ground floor.
Our themed room included dressing up, a secret bathroom, and a textured star-filled ceiling above super comfy bunks which really did add to the magic. Crisp white linen meant a good night sleep wasnt forfeited either, with the distant low hum of a house music lulling me to sleep when the late night bar finally closed.
The Peliroccos intruiging themed rooms (there are ninteen to choose from) are cool, colourful, and kooky, with a decadence which stimulates guests sense of fun in a way that no other hotel can.
Warm, attentive and blisteringly cool long-term staffer’ Alis said,
“people who havent stayed always want to find out more, I often have to tell my curious friends — it isnt a bloody sex hotel! Its a rock and roll hotel, and yeah, it is a pretty flipping cool place to work”.
Inside, you will find every devilish detail has been thought through, from buttock pedastalls to mirrors where they matter, the intrigue is not just behind bedroom doors.
After a night of fun and frolics, the sea is so close you can enjoy a Brighton sunrise before sitting down to, as one fellow guest described it, “undoubtedly the best full english breakfast in the Brighton, if not England” in the intimate sun filled dining room.
Locally sourced, perfectly prepared, and served by exceptionally attentive and cheery Fi who quietly noticed when the coffee ran dry.
The Hotel Pelirocco and its exceptional staff offered my sons and I (no age discrimination here) a much needed dose of playful fun after what has felt like an age of social starvation.
Fellow guests Ray and Andy, staying on business, seemed to agree,
“this place has it all: it is an intimate hotel with history, brilliant staff and super cool details, its the kind of place you want to introduce your best mates to.”
Perfectly placed for those needing to blow out the cobwebs in Britains most playful city, ‘the Peli’ as it’s lovingly reffered, gives guests the chance to reconnect with their inner child – all while not having to sacrifice luxury linen and first class food and drinks.
The themed Hotel is open to the public and can be booked for events and parties. Their food is consistently impressive, and the drinks are prepared by knowledgeable mixologists, intent on making your experience “next level”.
