Sleeperz team welcomes Doctor Who star
January 11, 2011
The Sleeperz Cardiff team was delighted when the hotel was chosen as the location for one of Doctor Who star Matt Smith’s latest photoshoots.
He’s come a long way since the stripy knitted scarf and it’s safe to say that the time travelling Doctor Who of 2010 is now something of a style icon.
Unsurprising then that current star Matt is a regular in the gossip columns and celebrity pages and he was happy to chat with staff and guests about his experiences.
Chosen as the setting because of the distinctive style and modern interior, even the roof of the hotel was made use of as Matt took in the fabulous city views – wearing a leopard print coat to do so!
Sleeperz General Manager Laura Peeroo is a self-confessed Doctor Who fanatic, glued to every episode and regularly checking out the latest instalments at the now famous exhibition in the Bay.
Describing the visit as probably her best ‘day at the office’, Laura said:
“I love everything to do with Doctor Who and although David Tennant just pips Matt to the post when it comes to my all time favourite (sorry Matt!), he comes a very close second and I’m a big fan.
“Matt’s added a new dimension and brought it to the attention of an even bigger fan base and to have him in the hotel was just amazing.
“It’s really exciting as Sleeperz has such a distinctive design that we’re being approached quite a lot now by photographers and production companies who want to shoot in such a unique space.
“I’m not quite sure anyone will top Doctor Who in my eyes though – we’ll have to wait and see about that one!”
