How Mollie’s is transforming low-cost travel

Mollie’s is the brand new, affordable hotel and diner concept taking the UK by storm. The Bristol-based motel and diner is its second Soho House designed home, following the successful launch of Mollie’s Oxfordshire in 2019.

With rapid expansion plans to roll-out a pipeline of sought-after, design-led venues across the UK (Manchester’s due to launch next year), Mollie’s bold vision is to transform affordable travel with its own distinctive and disruptive ‘budget-luxe’ offering.

Budget Luxe

The unique ‘budget-luxe’ offering from Mollie’s includes exclusive Soho House designed interiors, seamless tech and luxury amenities – not to mention cracking American-style food in the diner.

Mollie’s Bristol has great appeal for everyone. It’s for fun-seeking weekend travellers, family ‘staycationers’, student sleepovers, road trip stop-overs, business travellers and spontaneous mid-week getaways. It features 123 Soho House designed rooms across three floors, all-day food and cocktails served at the 195-cover Diner and heated terrace, as well as a communal workspace with free bottomless tea and Mollie’s own artisanal house coffee blend!

Mollie’s Diner

Mollie’s Diner is what really gets us excited! This modern, all-day hang-out serves up contemporary, seasonal cooking. With interiors designed exclusively by Soho House, the setting hints at a classic diner style, but is reinvented with elegant vintage inspired lighting, sleek tiling, comfortable banquettes, warm wood and chrome fittings and lots of natural light.

Early-riser or late-nighter, Mollie’s all-day diner culture has guests covered. From build-your-own breakfast waffles and pancakes to downright decadent burgers and rotisserie chicken; from healthy salads and plant-based options to a wildly extensive dessert menu and bottomless cups of Mollie’s own artisanal house coffee blend. Mollie’s is a place for guests to gather and enjoy great food with quality ingredients at the right price in a fun and cool atmosphere.

We’d particularly recommend the Mollie’s Cheeseburger; two beef patties, American cheese, Mollie’s sauce,
 tomato, lettuce, onion and gherkin gives an authentic taste of the US-of-A and we’re here for it! We’d also suggest starting with the Chicken Bites with BBQ sauce if you’re really hungry!

Local Lounge

Mollie’s Lounge is a vibrant and buzzing start to your stay. It’s the centrepiece of the property, encompassing the lobby, self-check-in, workspace, Mollie’s Store and a comfy living room, creating a home-away-from-home and a space to work, socialise or relax and enjoy a cocktail. For a local beer, try Independence from Bristol Beer Factory or if you are after a cocktail, either the classic margarita or the Spicy Paloma will be enough to sharpen you up nicely.

Mollie’s Bristol is situated at the gateway to the South-West, off the M5, which links the Midlands with South-West England. Close to Bath, Cardiff, Bristol Airport and minutes from Bristol Centre, the location makes Mollie’s a great stop-over when visiting the city, en route to the South-West, or for family and friends seeing students at the two universities nearby.
