Café Rouge opens Cheese Suite

Café Rouge opens Cheese Suite

Free 1-night stay at world’s only cheese-themed hotel

The world’s world’s first cheese-themed hotel – a true homage to fromage – will be in London from 29 January until 6 February.

The unique concept, known as The Cheese Suite, has been commissioned by French bistro restaurant Café Rouge to celebrate its new extra cheesy menu, after reports reveal that 700,000 tonnes of cheese is consumed each year, with each Brit averaging 27.4 grams of cheese ingestion every day.

Situated in the heart of London in Camden, this cheese-themed getaway is really too gouda to miss out on. Fromage fanatics will be able to feast their eyes on cheese-themed wallpaper, throws and cushions as well as take selfies for the ‘gram of giant cheese’ installations, before turning in for the night snuggled up in cheese-themed bedding.

As the accommodation is self-catered, there are plenty of cheese-themed cookbooks to provide inspiration and classic cheese boardgames to help pass the time - as well as information available on the best cheese getaways and day trips to go on.

If guests fancy a night in without having to cook, they can even shower with cheese-scented soap in the Suite while dialling the cheese hotline delivery service for melted cheesy treats straight from Café Rouge delivered to their door… all to be consumed while listening to songs from the specially-compiled cheesy playlist, of course.

Jacqueline Fletcher, head of marketing at Café Rouge commented: “We always want to cater to the appetite of our customers, and we know that there’s a real hunger for cheese-based dishes after serving over 20,000 Cheese Afternoon Teas since launching in 2018.”

While it is free to stay at The Cheese Suite, guests will be able to donate to Café Rouge’s dedicated charity partner the Prince’s Trust upon checkout should they wish.

How to apply

If you would like to be a guest at The Cheese Suite, email to register for the chance to be entered into a ballot for a one-night stay. Nights are allocated at random and all visits will take place between the 29 January and 6 February 2020.
