Oompa oompa doom-pa-de-do, we’ve got a great little staycation idea for you.
It’s one for chocoholics and Dahl fans alike: a hotel room based around Willy Wonka’s iconic chocolate factory.
LateRooms.com has partnered with The Chocolate Box Hotel in Bournemouth to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the original Willy Wonka movie, based on the book by Roald Dahl.
Those lucky enough to stay in the room can expect to be met by all things Willy Wonka-inspired, as you can see in the mock-ups, which have just been released.
Candy fanatics can enjoy lickable wallpaper in a variety of flavours, a chocolate fountain with dipping fruit and marshmallows, jars of gobstoppers, gumballs, chocolates and sweets in abundance, and pictures adorning the walls paying homage to the family favourite film.
The bathroom also has more treats – chocolate-scented toiletries, jars of sweets, a purple robe and slippers resembling the blazer worn by Wonka himself, and (on request at an additional charge) guests can have the bath filled with liquid chocolate.
Even the hotel room’s key card will be a golden ticket.
It’s not just a chocolate haven, though, the room has all the come comforts you’d expect like Eqyptian cotton bedding, a memory foam mattress, and black out blinds to ensure a good night’s sleep when the sugar rush wears off.
All treats within the room are unlimited and will be restocked as per the guests’ wishes, and hygiene-conscious folks need not worry as the lickable wallpaper will be replaced after each stay.
The room will be available for £200 per night. The addition of the chocolate-filled bath comes at £150 per bath.
Matthew Fox, CEO of LateRooms, said: ‘We’re really excited about working with The Chocolate Box Hotel to create this room, offering something so magical and memorable to both chocolate lovers and everyday holiday makers.
‘I think those interested in experiencing this Willy Wonka-inspired hotel room should definitely register their interest and do it quickly as we suspect it will be in high demand once the room is available. I may even register myself for a trip!’
