Feel like a popstar at Hotel Pelirocco, Brighton

You may have noticed that the Travelettes love themselves the odd night out at a great hotel or hostel. So before leaving on my road trip through England, I looked through my options for accomodation in Brighton and came across a place that is a little more than unusual. So on the first night of our trip, we stayed at the Hotel Pelirocco, a saucy stopover right in the very center of the famous seaside resort Brighton.

With 19 different rooms, all dedicated to various rock and popculture icons such as Betty Page and the Sex Pistols, a night at the Hotel Pelirocco is a unique experience. We chose the “Pin up Parlour”, a room dedicated to Diana Dors – the Kingdom’s very own Marilyn – because of its girly and kitchy athmosphere. From bed to make-up table, everything is designed in great detail. Surrounded by feathers, angel figures, brocade and crystals, sleeping there felt like being on the set of Velvet Goldmine or The Unholy Wife.

From a boxing ring room to a sexy suite with pole dance area, there is simply a room for everyone’s taste. Additionally to every room you can book a private Sing Star area for an evening full of fun with your friends or lover.

Having driven from Germany to Brighton during the entire day, surely we had to check out the hotel bar for a night-cap. We were lucky to be there the one night they have their monthly live literature and music event called “Ace Stories“. Different authors read from their books or poetry and discuss their writing experience. Naturally I listened extra closely since the Travelettes are currently writing a book.

Exhausted from our trip and a little bit tipsy from the delicious drinks, we fell into our cosy canopy bed and dreamed of sequined dresses, feather boas and red lipstick.

Prices range from £55 for a single room and to £119 for a double room up to £250 for the famous “play room” suite, all of which can be booked directly through their website.
