Volkswagen launches Hotel VW California

Published 24 July 2014

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has paired up with hotel website to offer six Volkswagen California SE camper vans as ‘hotel rooms,’ initially on Temple Island in Henley-on-Thames. The VW Hotel California will eventually move to other picturesque locations across the UK.

The California camper van ‘rooms’ are available to book from an affordable £35 per night. Each has room for four adults and features a pop-up roof, kitchen with a fridge, twin-burner cooker and a sink with running water. Other features include wood-trimmed cupboards, integrated window blinds, an awning and two chairs, plus WiFi and iPod docking.  

Temple Island is just downstream from Henley-on-Thames and includes an ornamental temple, or ‘folly’, built in 1771. It was originally designed as a fishing lodge. Inside there are wall paintings that are thought to be the earliest Etruscan style artworks in Britain. The island is the starting point for the Henley Royal Regatta.
