mirrage art party

We absolutely love this latest art exhibition by Mirrage aka local designer Ellen Cairns. She has somehow managed to top our already maximalist space, our bar has never had such pizazz…

A big thanks to Ellen who has created especially for us, our very own shiny spangly sequin festooned sign!
Our classic logo is nestled above a contrasting monochrome image of the wonderful ABBA, and there’s plenty more iconic bands and figures on display in our gallery.

The artwork was launched with a good ol’ party and a fab time was had by all. Ellen had organised not one but two fabulous performers, singer Liam Joseph and Rock Candy drag artiste) to meet, greet and entertain, plus ordered a huge delicious cake, snazzy neon Mirrage sign and DJs.

Thanks to everyone for attending, performing, styling, baking and making!

There’s some beautiful pieces on show to admire or buy plus Ellen does do commissions, take a look!

have you ‘herd’?

“Shaun by the Sea brings together a fantastic flock of Shauns, which represent the individuality and diversity of Brighton & Hove. The trail of big and little Shauns covers the whole of the community which Martlets servesand the bold, brave and colourful designs will shine a light on the life-changing impact of hospice care.

The event is raising money to enable Martlets to keep caring for people facing the toughest of times.”

This fun art trail is on display until 5th November, culminating with an auction.


There’s an app to log all your found sheep, where you can upload selfies and actually collect rewards, offered by the local business community.

Just like the Raymond Briggs’ Snow Dogs in previous years, these Aardman Shaun the Sheep are an excellent way to explore the city. You will see designs by local artists everywhere you go and if you indulge your collector impulses you’ll certainly get your 10,000 steps in!

teapot alert!

Q: Is there a word for having a teapot fetish?

A: Because we ‘sphinx’ we have it!

If our manager Alis sees a good one, she just has to get it for us.

As just like everything else at Hotel Pelirocco, our crackpot crockery is individual and unique!

radio 4a gig!

“Radio 4a is very excited to be returning to Brighton’s Hotel Pelirocco on Saturday 14th October 2023.

You can join us live and direct between 1pm-11pm for music selected by some of Brighton’s top eclectic DJs.
Cheap priced ‘all day happy house cocktails’ and party music, wear your dancing shoes for maximum enjoyment
To name quite a few……
Radio 4A is Brighton’s longest running underground radio station, est 1996.”

wedding reception

We had such a laugh with this wedding party!

David and Jaki booked the whole hotel (that’s 19 rooms including the Lovers Lair Suite) for their wedding reception. All their guests enjoyed staying one or two nights in one of our themed bedrooms, plus full breakfast in the mornings. The evening affair was catered for by Nourish with a full mexican themed buffet in our red lounge, and a general smattering of retro snacks in the bar. After this came cheeses, a vast array of puddings plus a freezer full of ice lollies!

Entertainment was provided by The Singing Staff who were booked by the bride and groom to prank their son with two singing policewomen. They pulled this trick off a little too convincingly, then pulled everyone in for a brilliant singalong to the likes of Queen and the aforementioned Abba. Many guests were in 70s fancy dress and the white blur in the above photo is an enthusiastic and very tall Elvis!

Sparkly bride Jaki enthused, “We all had a blast!…

The team here could not have been more helpful or obliging in tailoring the two day wedding celebrations to our requirements and just about every guest went out of their way to mention the amazing service they delivered. We are already planning a reunion weekend at the hotel for next year.”

If YOU are interested in having your own Wedding Reception, Christmas Party or works Away Day with us, please email us for full details. We do require rooms to be booked.

She simply said, “the food was amazing!”
Says it all, we think?
Our traditional meaty Full English is made with ‘happy meat’ – free range and sourced from the Brighton Sausage Co, proper brown sourdough bread by Real Patisserie, locally Roasted coffee, not from concentrate orange juice and live yoghurts.
Or you can also choose our famous Vegan or Vegetarian options with the same top notch quality,
Breakfast in Bed is an optional extra (free delivery to the Lovers Lair Suite) but of course some folks prefer to eat in the bar and give it their full attention!
Light bites are also on offer, with or without bubbly or a Bloody Mary hangover cure!
Breakfast is served til the leisurely time of 10 in the week and 11 at weekends.

We source mostly local produce and also serve preserves, bio yoghurts, fresh fruit and freshly ground coffee. You can plump for non gluten bread and alternative milks too.

our cocktail bar

A pair of Reggae Sunsplashes! Emma J commented, “the cocktails were feisty and didn’t skimp on the booze and reasonably priced too!!”

It’s true, you can rest assured that all our cocktails contain at least two shots.
