Oxfordshire – Mollie’s Motel & Diner is the first in a series of affordable hospitality spaces coming to motorways across the UK.
Inspired by Americana, Mollie’s is a motel, diner and drive-through, located close to members’ club Soho Farmhouse. Its 79 bedrooms, including interconnected family and bunk rooms, have been curated by Soho House Design and feature the brand’s signature luxuries such as rainforest showers and Cowshed toiletries.
The motel also offers a general store, spaces for co-working and an app that can be used for seamless check-in and check-out, keyless entry and ordering room service.
‘It’s been a long-standing passion project of mine to have a go at re-inventing the British roadside experience,’ says Nick Jones, founder of Soho House. ‘My aim with the first Mollie’s Motel & Diner is to offer affordable style for everyone to eat, drink and sleep over.’
Long considered elitist spaces, private members’ clubs are diversifying and becoming more accessible for all.
