Hotel Pelirocco
4 star rating 10 Regency Square

Brighton West Pier Sussex BN1 2FG

Not sure if this kitsch pop-art boutique is what Greene had in mind when he wrote about Brighton Rock. Around the clock indulgence from the themed Hotel Pelirocco.

For those who regard Brighton as little more than a Soho-on-Sea, the cheerful vulgarity of the Hotel Pelirocco will do little to persuade them otherwise. This is a fiercely independent boutique hotel whose bold take on the delicious cheesecake subculture of the late 1950s is likely to raise as many pulse rates as it does eyebrows. No, it's not for the fainthearted and yes it's difficult to imagine bringing the kids to such a post-watershed establishment, but it's a stunning achievement all the same. It's a kinky proposition, but the X-rated shtick and the kitsch, Cadillac-pink bedrooms are an absolute must for anyone ever stirred by a glimpse of stocking-top or floored by a pair of blue-suede rockabilly creepers. It's a not a complete burlesque show by any means, and the style is capably supported by substance. Here's the deal:

  • The Pelirocco Playroom - saucy pink boudoir with 8 foot circular bed, mirrored ceiling, giant plunge bath and double monsoon shower heads.
  • 19 uniquely themed bedrooms.
  • Sputnik Suite - decorated like a classic Dan Dare space-capsule.
  • Do Knit Disturb - guest room featuring all manner of brightly coloured-knitted amenities including a knitted telephone knitted breakfast.
  • Betty's Boudoir - bedroom dedicated to sexy fifties pin-up, Bettie Page spa bath for two!.
  • Adult hampers put together by Brighton's world-famous erotic boutique, 'She Said'.
  • Dazzling original art-work.
  • Pop-art exhibitions.
  • Impromptu music parties jams.
  • Located in a gorgeous Regency Square just off the seafront on the West side of Brighton.

It may be marginally more pimped than a T-Bucket Hot Rod but Hotel Pelirocco is an absolute joy from beginning to end with the kind of creative energy more commonly associated with greased-back music legends and devastating forces of nature. A fiercely fetish take on lodging - R4U
