As the hotel nears its 17th birthday and yet another exciting new themed bedroom we thought we’d take you on a little trip down memory lane… In part one of our ‘Rooms Over Time’ series we take a look at our current bedrooms’ previous incarnations. Which ones do you remember?
rooms over time - Hysteric Glamour
Soul Supreme motown room at Hotel Pelirocco
Initially the ‘Hysteric Glamour‘ room created by the Japanese designer label of the same name, this cosy rear double got all gold and mood-lit over a decade ago when Soul Supreme was born. Celebrating all things motown, with a hand-painted mural by Peli legend Bex Simpson this continues to be very popular with Peliroccans old and new.
rooms over time - Skint twin room
rooms over time - Gresham Blake room
One of the many record label/bedroom collaborations over the years the Skint records twin was a popular with pals coming down to have it large in Brighton. In its current guise as the GB Room its more popular with loved up couples treating themselves to a romantic getaway. Designed by Brighton tailor Gresham Blake with its wood floors and fancy bathroom its certainly one of the Peli’s more grown up bedrooms!
rooms over time - Dotty
rooms over time - Do Knit Disturb
Definitely one of our wackier rooms ‘Dotty’ was dedicated to Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama and her vast fields of polka dots. This single had a complete identity change in 2012 emerging as ‘Do Knit Disturb’ designed by local artisan Kate ‘Cardigan’ Jenkins gained masses of international press attention as the first ever ‘knitted hotel bedroom’.
rooms over time - Ocean Room
Rooms over time - Cloud Cuckoo Land
The colour palette may be similar but the Ocean Room was given a contemporary twist when it was transformed into Cloud Cuckoo Land by design duo Ridley & Dowse nearly five years ago. (Make sure you check out the Dowse shop on Western Road next time you’re in town)
Playroom Suite at Hotel Pelirocco
Kraken's Lair Suite
We couldn’t compile such a list without mentioning our flagship Suite now could we? Pretty in pink as the Playroom with its 8ft-round bed, pole dancing area and of course that bathroom, these days it has more of a sultry, nautical feel after being styled by Kraken Rum in 2013.
