Co-owned by Hollywood actor, John Malkovich, this place is credited as 'The UK's first design hotel for budget travellers - Travelodge prices, but with more sex-appeal'. The hotel couldn’t be better located in the city; the train station, the restaurants, the nightlife – it's all within walking distance. The hotel is off-the-wall – it's pink and purple, with blue fluffy curtains, the rooms even feature pictures of John Malkovich himself. They also have flat screen TVs, WiFi access – and a continental breakfast, including pastries and fruit, is available each morning to set you up for the weekend. They even have a 24 hour bar (pink inspired, of course), and there's a buzzing bar just around the corner with a cosy outdoor area - think Chesterfield sofas - in a car park.
