Boutique Hotels In Hastings, Rye And SussexBoutique Hotels have been around for a few years now. Ian Schrager is credited with the original Boutique Hotel concept - He opened one in New York in the 1970's. Since then, the idea has spread to Europe and throughout the wider World.
Really the definition of the term 'Boutique Hotel' means 'Design Led'.
The Zanzibar Hotel in Hastings, Rye, Sussex is a brilliant example of what can be done with a clear vision, a bit of imagination and a well thought out design.
The Pelirocco in Brighton is noteworthy because it was one of the first 'Boutique Hotels in Sussex'. With its Rock-star themed rooms and its cutting edge atmosphere and design, The Pelirocco really put Brighton on the map when it was not much bigger than Hastings in the 1980's.
For 'Boutique Hotels in Rye', The George is probably the best example. It's one of the only 'Hotels and Restaurants in Rye' and has a good reputation for delivering consistently good food in a classy ambience. It's set within the cobblestone streets of the Medieval town and is an excellent location to get to the 14th Century Cathedral and the World Class tea shops.
'Hotel Du Vin' is another example of how well the Boutique Hotel business model can be used. As the neam suggests, all it's hotel rooms are based on fine wines. It's a simple idea but it's extremely well executed and their enduring appeal is testament to the hard work and evolution of what is a leading brand in the Boutique Hotel field.
