With Halloween fast approaching, it’s time to start planning how you’ll be spending the spookiest night of the year.
From terrifying classics to thrilling murder mysteries, our hotel has a scary movie-themed room to suite every Halloween fan.
Which one will you choose?
The Horrifying Hitchcock Floor
The perfect hotel for fans of classic horror films, at the Arthouse we have a whole floor dedicated to ‘The Master of Suspense’, Alfred Hitchcock.
From rooms focused around the infamous Suspicion to a stunning tribute to The Birds, you’re sure to have a frightful night.
Choose from eight Hitchcock themed rooms, sleeping between four and six guests, and get ready for an eerie Halloween night.
One of our favourite rooms from the Hitchcock floor is our tribute to The Bird’s.
This dark and decadent room transports its visitors into the mind of one of the greatest filmmakers, with a horrifying mural from the film set on the ceiling.
A critically acclaimed thriller, Hitchcock’s The Bird’s is a suspense-filled masterpiece revolving around a love story between a stunning blonde starlet and a handsome heartthrob, until things take a terrifying turn for the worse.
Adapted from a 1952 short story written by Daphne du Maurier, Hitchcock masterfully plays on the human emotion of fear in this all time classic.
Known for his devious methods whilst filming, during the filming of the attic scene he forced the leading actress to work for 5 days in an enclosed space using live birds instead of mechanical.
Even though his methods were almost maniacal, The Birds goes down in history as the greatest thriller/horror movie of all time.
One of Hitchcock’s most gripping horror films, the world of The Birds is the perfect place to spend All Hallows Eve.
Next up is undoubtedly one of Alfred Hitchcock’s best loved psychological thrillers, Suspicion.
A twisted and spooky tale of love and betrayal, this tense film follows the story of Johnnie Aygsgarth and Lina McLaidlaw’s, portrayed by the legendary Cary Grant and Joan Fontaine.
When handsome gambler Johnnie crosses paths with shy and bookish Lina, love blossoms and they quickly marry. However, it’s only after their honeymoon that the truth behind Johnnie’s façade begins to unravel and turn dark.
The plot twists and turns as Hitchcock builds the suspense until it is uncovered that Johnnie’s friend, Beaky, has been mysteriously murdered. Lina starts to question everything and has the suspicion that Johnnie is the murderer. Will she be next?
From its impeccable casting to its chilling musical leitmotif, Suspicion is certainly a timeless masterpiece in cinema and the perfect backdrop to a spooky stay at Arthouse.
With dark and ghostly interiors and blood red bedding, this spine-tingling suite is sure to raise the hairs on the back of your neck.
Get enchanted by our mesmerising Spellbound room and come on a spooky journey to discover your psyche.
One of Alfred Hitchcock’s most psychological films, Spellbound delves into the mysterious world of psychoanalysis, a technique of bringing unconscious memories and thoughts to the surface as a therapeutic technique and treatment for some mental health issues.
Based on the thriller The House of Dr Edwardes, the predominantly black and white film invites us to Green Manors, a mental hospital in Vermont. Here, we meet Dr Constance Peterson, a cold and emotionless female psychoanalyst, and learn that the current director of the hospital, Dr Murchison, is being forced into retirement after taking a leave of absence for nervous exhaustion. His replacement comes in the form of Dr Anthony Edwardes, a very young and attractive man.
Dr Petersen grows suspicious of the impossibly young director and discovers a mystery that will take all her psychoanalysing skills to solve.
One of the film’s most mysterious scenes is famed surrealist artist Salvador Dali’s conception of the film’s key dream sequence. Hitchcock gave Dali free rein of the sequence, with only minimal plot pointers and the sequence ended up being 20 minutes long. It was eventually cut down to just two minutes, but it is still one of the most unique and unnerving sequences in cinema.
Spellbound is dark, mysterious and artistic, a true icon in the Hitchcock collection. Sleeping up to six people, invite all your Hitchcock aficionados to stay in the luxury Spellbound room in Arthouse Hotel for Halloween.
The Frightful Rocky Horror Show Room
Maybe less of a stereotypical horror film, the Rocky Horror Show room echoes the extravagance and darkness of the iconic movie.

While in search of help, their journey takes an unforgettable turn when they stumble upon the weird and eerie castle of Dr Frank-N-Furter, an alien from planet Transsexual.

The Spine-tingling Chicago Suite
The story of two women from the Jazz scene in prohibition-era Chicago, both accused of murder and awaiting trial on the infamous Murderess Row, Chicago is dark and brilliant classic.
Velma Kelly is a nightclub singer, accused of the murder of her cheating husband and sister. Velma is the unrivalled star of the cell block until Roxie Hart is arrested for the murder of her lover, a crime her husband Amos initially took the fall for.
Both women fight to be represented in court by Chicago’s slickest lawyer, Billy Flynn, conjuring up a media circus in the build up to their trials and singing and dancing their way to celebrity criminal status.

The Eerie Phantom of the Opera Room
Last but certainly not least, is our decadent and mysterious Phantom of the Opera suite.
Based on the French novel Le Fantome de lOpera by Gaston Leroux, the Phantom of the Opera tells the story of a bitter and badly disfigured man, known as the Phantom, who lives in the sewers underneath the Paris Opera House and haunts anyone who enters.
He falls in love with the chorus opera singer and to get closer to her begins privately tutoring her. During these lessons he wears a long black cloak and mask to hide his scarred face.
The story was inspired by historical event at the Paris Opera during the 19th century, and the mythical tale of using a former ballet pupil’s skeleton in the 1841 production of Der Freischutz. Due to the story’s popularity, it was adapted into various film and stage adaptations, including the 1925 film.
