Website Mollies

Innovatively designed by Soho House, Mollie’s is a growing family of twenty-first century motel-diners with big ambitions for expansion. In spirit, Mollie’s was born in America – an offspring of the classic roadside motel and drive-in diner, a welcome stopover on a route to somewhere.  We’ve borrowed the inviting red neon signs and the easy-going vibe, the burgers, the shakes, the bottomless coffee, a dash of nostalgia, but there’s nothing old-school about Mollie’s. Expect innovative digital check-in, EV chargers, designer rooms with a fresh Soho House look and affordable prices.  Mollie’s has already been named as the ‘Best Budget Hotel’ in the Sunday Times Best Places to Stay, Best Innovator in the GQ Food & Drink Awards, and was awarded the Catey Award for Best Use of Technology.
