The second “super-luxe” Mollie’s motel has been opened by Soho House. Located by the M5 junction near Bristol on the corner of Cribbs Causeway out-of-town retail park, the affordable hotel and diner joins the original celeb-attracting concept in Oxford.
The result of a £15m investment, it has created 60 jobs, based on the promise that it will “transform travel in the area with its own distinctive and disruptive ‘budget-luxe’ offering”.
Featuring 123 rooms designed by Soho House across three floors, prices start at £50 a night for a double. The 195-cover diner serves all-day food and cocktails and has a heated terrace plus communal workspace with free bottomless tea and Mollie’s artisanal house coffee blend.
Mollie’s House boss Darren Sweetland said: “Mollie’s is a stylish, fun, brand new concept in hotels that is discerning, design-led and surprisingly affordable and we have high hopes that it will quickly become Britain’s favourite stopover.
“Cribbs Causeway, with its incredible links to Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and the South West, was the perfect choice for our second site. We have invested £15 million in the property and are proud that we have created 60 new jobs for the local economy, hiring individuals from the surrounding area as part of our commitment to provide opportunity to people within the local community.
“Mollie’s also marks a new era of positivity for the UK hospitality sector, bringing employment, growth and energy to the market,” he added.
