Chocolate hotel opens for one night only

Monday, 26 March 2012 2:51 PM

To celebrate Easter, the Cavendish Hotel in London have teamed up with mater chocolatiers to create a room made out of chocolate. One lucky couple will win the chance to eat their way out of it tonight.

Professional chef students from Westminster Kingsway College have carefully crafted the 12th floor room in the hotel from almost 100kg of luxurious Callebaut chocolate. The designs include chocolate lamps, chocolate flowers, and romantic chocolate hearts on the chocolate bed.

Everything in the room is edible – so, after the lucky winners have been greeted with a bespoke chocolate cocktail at the hotel bar, they will be able to indulge their sweet tooth in the bedroom.

Neil Braude, hotel manager at the Cavendish London, said: “What could be more fun than waking up feeling a bit peckish and being able to munch your way through the do not disturb sign? Or taking a nibble out of the flowers?”
