Quirkiest hotels in the UK

If you want to stay in a bog standard hotel room in a non-descriptive place, a town with no name, one you'll probably forget tomorrow, this blog post probably isn't for you. If, on the other hand, you love weird and wonderful buildings with a quirky twist you've come to the right place. In this blog post we'll have a look at some of the most unique hotels UK has to offer.

Ecopod boutique retreat, Argyll

Ecopod boutique retreat, Argyll

It’s not the Eden Project, but you can stay there overnight. These quirky domes are built into the wild landscape of Scotland’s west coast in Argyll, and panoramic views of nearby Loch Linnhe and the snow-capped Mull mountains come as part of the package. And if a roomy place with designer furniture and wood-burning stoves wasn't enough, there's an outdoor hot tub where you can catch the last of the sun setting behind the loch.

Gotham Hotel, Manchester

Gotham Hotel, Manchester

In an iconic former bank building, this upscale art deco-style hotel in city centre, Gotham takes inspiration from the dark and wonderful world of comic book heroes. The building features carvings by local sculptor John Ashton Floyd, and was dubbed the 'King of King Street', due to its grandeur, size and castle-like design.

Spitbank Fort, Southsea

You’ll need sea legs for this one. Standing defiant in the choppy waters of the Solent, Spitbank Fort is one of four naval defences built in 1878 against a suspected French invasion, although it was never used in battle. It may not look like much, but it is a private island reached only by boat or helicopter, and the luxury rooms are rumoured to be sublime!

The Yellow Submarine, Liverpool

If you ever wondered what it was like to stay in a Beatles song, look no further! Although this boat really is a copy of the sub in the film The Hunt for Red October which starred Sean Connery, and was produced by Paramount studios as purposely built 5 star apartment boat, it still has Beatles paraphernalia as decorations.
