  • Mollie’s Motel & Diner, part of Quentin Restaurants and Soho House & Co, opened its doors and welcomed guests in Buckland, Oxfordshire on 30th January 2019. Inspired by the classic American diner, Mollie’s is a motel, diner and drive-thru from Nick Jones, founder and CEO of Soho House, the first in a series of openings coming to the roadside and city centres across the UK.

    Mollie’s Motel features seventy-nine bedrooms (including interconnected family and bunk rooms) by Soho House Design, with style and comfort in mind. All have king-size beds, Egyptian cotton sheets, high-pressure rainforest showers and Cowshed products in the bathrooms.

    In the general store, motel guests have tea and filter coffee on the house, a space to work or relax and access to Wi-Fi and charging points. A range of everyday essentials, from snacks to beauty and skincare are also available to buy.

    Mollie’s offers affordable style, with a menu of diner classics, comfortable kind-size beds and mobile check-in, a new roadside experience for travellers and families on the move.
