PentaHotel Derby Launch Party

A few weeks back an email dropped into my inbox asking if I'd like to attend a hotel launch party. Err.... was I about to decline? Never. I took Mr C and Emily along with me, we spruced ourselves up and off we went.

It was to celebrate the opening of the Penta Hotel in Derby. Penta hotels are a relatively new chain to the UK and are taking the hotel industry by storm. They are located all over the world and have already launched 6 hotels in the UK with more opening in the next 12 months. 

These hotels are like no other. They offer a totally new concept with a cool, funky vibe. No cold reception area with your normal check in desk, nope, guests check in at the bar!!!! Grab yourself a drink whilst your at it! The hotel offers a pool table for guests and rooms with flat screen TV's and and free movie channels and wireless internet access. 

When we arrived the party was just getting started and the fizz was flowing. We were quite early but it didn't take long for the room to fill and then a party atmosphere took over.

There was the regular bar and then this cocktail bar made from the biggest block of ice you ever did see!

Glass of fizz in hand we made our way through the growing crowds and came across this lovely lady Jemma. Jemma writes over at Twinkles and more. We've communicated via social media and I'd noticed she was also going to the event. It was lovely to meet her and her husband Simon. The chat between us all came easily and we had a great evening together. We agreed we would meet up again, (must do that Jemma!!!) 

The totally gorgeous Jemma and Simon. 

Anyone for a mojito? 

We were served up the most amazing food, we were all starving as well. It was a Mediterranean feast with every meat, cheese you could wish. Mr C and Emily also enjoyed delicious beef and seared tuna, in fact Mr C said the beef was some of the best he'd ever tasted. 

And on to the desserts..............I was literally like a kid in a sweet shop!

Delicious ice cream with too many toppings to mention. It's ok to have your ice cream with fresh blackberries and raspberries topped with fizzy dummies and gummy fried eggs right? I thought so. 

During the night we all got rather excited at the celebs mingling around, especially Emily who got selfies with well knowns from Towie, Hollyoaks, Ex on the beach and we all managed to get photos with the boys from Blue who were there to perform at the launch, they were very friendly and happy to oblige. I managed to get a photo with every one of them, go me! Although I've not put them all on here. 

Microphones at the ready. 

Even Mr C got in on the act, think his was the best shot of the night. Just missing Lee otherwise it would have been a full house.

It felt more like being in a swanky club than a hotel. It wasn't long before Blue took to the stage to perform but sadly we weren't able to stay for the whole performance as we had to be up for work the next day. Boo.

Me and Em couldn't resist a quick photo on the red carpet on the way out, may never get another chance!

We all had an amazing night at the launch of the newest Penta Hotel in the UK. We met Blue, mingled with other celebs, I got to meet a blogging friend and we all had a jolly good time. Penta sure know how to put on a party! 

Would I stay at a Penta Hotel. You bet, in fact I'd love to actually stop over at a Penta and when we are next away for a weekend up North I may see if we can get in at a Penta Hotel to experience the rooms and service. 

I would recommend you check out the website, you'll find it here, and it looks like they have regular offers on too so worth following them on Twitter to keep up to date. 

A big thank you goes to Penta Hotels for such a fab night, one we won't forget in a hurry.
