“The place for fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

The Pelirocco is a place for fun! Not maybe to stay for business or any mere functional duty but a place to relax in decadence and savour the fun, quirkiness of the surroundings, decor and atmosphere. Especially if you stay in the aptly named playroom with its circular bed, pole for dancing at, huge beautifully-tiled luxurious bath and fantastic double shower!

It's not just a base from which to explore Brighton, though of course that is perfectly possible, but staying here is an event to experience, from the great bar, the karaoke room, book able massage and fabulous breakfasts! And of course the quirky, stimulating art work and decor.

Once I'm here I don't really want to leave the building! Yes, there's the beach, the shops, the nightlife but I'm here for the fun of the place and the people in it!

The staff are always great and the cocktails fab! Expect to be enlivened and stimulated! Come for fun and laughter in a place that wants you to have exactly that!

Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: A fun place! Sleep another day

This hotel is by far the best I've ever stayed in on the South Coast if not the UK! A 1 min walk from the beach , 5 from the shops and a well stocked bar. I stayed in the Stoli room , got lucky with the Mrs - happy days , lively room service , fantastic staff and a wonderful breakfast ,it's worth every penny. Brighton's jewel!

Easy to find, in a great location, lovely staff, great bar, great cocktails. Spa bath for 2 was fab. Would have been nice to have had a couple of chairs on the balcony. Would definitely stay there again.

Overall, we really enjoyed our trip to the Pellirocco but there were certainly issues.

We stayed in the Bettie Page room, which felt like no one had really thought about it's design beyond acquiring bits to put in the room. The wasn't a plug socket near any of the available mirrors so drying your hair is fairly challenging. There's a TV but it faces the middle of the room so to watch it you either have to move furniture or sit on the floor. And we had a balcony which was nice but basically just for smokers because there aren't chairs out there so pretty much all you can do it stand for a while then come inside again.
Buttons were falling off the upholstery and a few knobs had fallen off the dresser which made the room look like it needed some TLC.
There weren't any robes in the room which is a little luxury I always look forward to.

On the first day, we didn't have any milk in our room (which I'm sure was just an oversight) and the receptionist gave us a little jug of fresh milk which was lovely. My problem with that is that whoever cleaned the room the remaining milk in the room for all of the (hot) following day and when we returned, it had morphed into a solid jug of smelly doom.

Oh and breakfast wasn't included which I think is a little cheap when you're paying £145 a night.

There were certainly good points though! The bar was well decorated and I had one of the best cocktails of my life. Both the receptionists we spoke to her friendly and helpful, and the location is great.

I think the place could be vastly improved by paying less attention to the "rock and roll" and a little more to the "hotel" because a few quick, cheap and easy fixes could make a good hotel a great one.

I really do love this place, although I;ve never actually stayed here, but I have spent many an hour in the hotel bar, listening to great music, sipping fantastic cocktails and hearing the guests rave about the rooms

When you stay in bland, beige soulless hotel rooms on a regular basis for business trips you do t expect too much from many hotels but I LOVED this hotel.

I am not going to say it was perfect as some of the decor was tired with peeling paint dusty skirting boards but you can forgive them this due to the fact there is nowhere quite like it, I will most certainly be heading back to sample another room. I had the MOD themed room which was fab x

For a quick visit to Brighton I was recommended to look for a hotel in the Regent square area – very central, historical and just by the sea. Looking for a hotel I came across Pelirocco, and their claim to “the best rock’n’roll hotel in England” as well as screaming pink website really appealed.

I arrived from London Heathrow by bus, which stopped right near the Regent square. The hotel totally met expectations in terms of amusiement : decadent, quirky, fashionable and ironic, the rooms are all different and created by various designers, there are local artist works/ exhibitions in the premises, a funky bar area, which easily becomes a fashionable spot on the weekends.

You may choose a room on the website, and I was surprised at how inexpensive they are in terms of an idea of a boutique hotel.
My girly ironic “do KNIT disturb” room with all furniture and accessories knitted by Kate Cardigan was any girl’s delight: spacious enough, very light, very comfortable bed. The breakfast was great and there was someone’s 21st party with the bar full of classy boys in shirts and pretty girls. DJ was surprisingly good, I wouldn’t expect anything like this at a hotel, then I learned Pelirocco even has their radio show.
Having such a package of the environment, design, location, food and entertainment - it’s much more than just a hotel – it’s a mini version of Brighton: homey, charming and full of young spirit and creativity. Absolutely recommend.
