Yes, this is a little weird, I have to admit. I also have to admit that, for £111, London’s pop-up Kentucky Fried Chicken hotel seems excellent value for money.

Read the press release below and see what you think ….

You can book here at 11am.

London's KFC popup hotel

‘CHICK-IN’ TO THE SPICIEST STAY OF THE SUMMER

“KFC is offering fans the opportunity to book an exclusive one-night stay in the House of Harland.

Located in London, your room is filled with delicious details, from a private cinema room, to a Finger Lickin’ ‘Press For Chicken’ button and Hot Winger Arcade Machine.

It’s no secret that 11 herbs and spices make things all the more tasty, so in celebration of the lucky number, House of Harland will be open for 11 nights between the 18th – 29th August.

And because we love a theme, rooms are available to book exclusively on Hotels.com from 11am on 11th August for just £111 per room per night (see what we did there!?), with 100% of proceeds going towards the KFC Foundation. Book here.

Unable to get abroad this year? Fear not, as KFC are taking things to the next level after the success of their annual Superfan Search and launching the ultimate staycation, House of Harland. 

KFC’s recent ad campaign celebrates the Colonel’s legions of hardcore fans across the nation, so it’s no surprise that they’re now offering fried chicken fans a bit of much-needed escapism. 

From getting personally picked up in a slick Black Cadillac (we’re calling it the Colonelmobile), to being greeted by your very own ‘Chick-In’ Clerk whose sole purpose is to make your stay a pleasure, you can expect to feel like fried chicken royalty from start to finish. 

Once escorted to number 11, indulge in the complimentary botanical infused self-care essentials, or catch one of the chick-flicks playing in the cinema room. Expect to see drumsticks in the detail, from bedding to wallpaper to an Arcade Machine and towel – fried chicken will never be far from your thoughts. 

Worried you’ll get peckish? Us too. A chicken concierge service will be at your fingertips (literally) with a press for chicken button, meaning a succulent treat will always be within reach.

Don’t miss out on booking one of the 11 nights available in the House of Harland, bookable exclusively on Hotels.com for just £111 per room per night with 100% of proceeds going to The KFC Foundation, supporting grassroots organisations across the country who are empowering young people to unleash their potential and build a positive future. 

Book here from 11th August at 11am BST. The hotel will be hosted at 9a Club Row, London E1 6JX.”

    Sounds awful. I’d rather stick pins in my eyes.

  • William says:

    KFC is revolting.

  • David says:

    And the rate does NOT include breakfast…

    • JDB says:

      Just as well given the quality of their cuisine. It can’t be a coincidence that they sell their food in a bucket.

  • Neil Spellings says:

    Interesting that it includes £100 worth of KFC but is restricted to two adults..can two people physically consume £100-worth of KFC?! (and still be alive afterwards!)

  • numpty says:

    Think i would rather stay in the Tunnocks caravan at Drimsynie Estate, far classier…

  • The Savage Squirrel says:

    Rob’s brain: “30 seconds to cut/paste a press release and photo? And just think of the comments we’ll get! Yeah, I’ll do it!”.

    • Rob says:

      I am up in North Yorkshire with no wi-fi and marginal mobile, so this was a gift 🙂

  • Oh! Matron! says:

    So many snobs on here 🙁 You won’t eat this, but you will eat Foie Gras…..

  • BlueThroughCrimp says:

    A staycation is staying at home.
    A holiday in the UK is a holiday…

        • J says:

          The Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary? That’s really your go to for English language definitions? More so than the OED or Collins? Crazy! https://www.oed.com/view/Entry/425083

        • J says:

          ‘The Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary (OALD) was the first advanced learner’s dictionary of English. It was first published in 1948. It is the largest English-language dictionary from Oxford University Press aimed at a non-native audience. Users with a more linguistic interest, requiring etymologies or copious references, usually prefer the Concise Oxford English Dictionary, or indeed the comprehensive Oxford English Dictionary, or other dictionaries aimed at speakers of English with native-level competence.’

        • J says:

          I doubt anyone would argue that ‘staycation’ wasn’t a subset of ‘holiday’… But a staycation is clearly either a holiday at home or a holiday within ones own country. For some reason, every time it’s used in the latter context, there’s someone who doesn’t understand that.

          • BlueThroughCrimp says:

            So you don’t like dictionary definitions now. Lol.

          • BlueThroughCrimp says:

            And all very well posting links when what I wrote isn’t wrong either.

          • J says:

            Like I said staycation is a subset of holiday. So a holiday in the UK is both a holiday and a staycation. Not hard to understand.

            Obviously if your original post was there for a reason other than to suggest that a holiday in the UK could not be defined as a staycation – then, I don’t get why you would have said it, but, yes, I misunderstood what you were getting at…

          • BlueThroughCrimp says:

            What I posted wasn’t hard to understand, but you, for some reason, went off on one.

            I’m really sure why anyone would get upset by calling a holiday a holiday so upset in the first place. Puzzling.

            Are you in marketing and like fancy buzz words?

          • J says:

            I don’t mind anyone calling a holiday a holiday – and if the original article had called it such, I wouldn’t have felt any need to say “No, it should be a staycation”, because clearly either is valid., But I read your comment as you refuted the idea that a staycation could be defined as a holiday within your own country. Every time the word staycation is used in that context on HfP, someone feels the need to jump in and correct it, without bothering to fact check first.

          • BlueThroughCrimp says:

            You call it what you like J.
            It’s a ridiculous and vague description of a holiday in your own country.

            People use it, but it’s similar to those restaurants that use mini shopping trolleys to put food in.

          • J says:

            Personally I’d call it a holiday, and always have.

            Don’t think I’ve ever been to restaurant and ordered food that wasn’t served on a plate or board… Is that really a common thing or something made up for clickbait?

          • Rob says:

            It’s a London thing, mainly for chips.

          • BlueThroughCrimp says:

            Boards are equally as bad.

            You should search for We Want Plates for an entry in to the world of a pint of chips, brunch on a shovel and desserts with cream on a slate!

            Perhaps you’d understand my cynicism for such rebranded things. 🙂

          • J says:

            Oh how I wish I hadn’t looked! Some of those are close to putting me off ever eating out again 😀

          • BlueThroughCrimp says:

            Sorry, J!

    • Toaster says:

      I concur, staycation is at home, if you are away fron home it is a holiday. People who live in USA can travel thousands of miles for a holiday in the USA, to call that a staycation is ridiculous.
      I wonder if the usage of staycation has changed during lockdown?

      • Tony says:

        Iirc, common usage of staycation in the uk at least started around the financial crisis of 07/08. It meant just that – stay at home, not be working and doing things as a series of day trips with one eye on conserving cash.

        Perhaps Covid has changed this as so many people over the last 18 months have been at home, not working and presumably going out doing stuff, whilst keeping an eye on the price tag. So you can’t really say you’ve been on a staycation for 18 months, when actually you’ve been on furlough.
