Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most number of pillows stuffed into cases in one minute.
The Guinness world record for the Largest pillow fight was set by a pillow fight consisting of 3,706 participants; it took place at Minehead Butlins in Somerset, UK, on 14 November 2008 as part of the BBC's Children in Need night. The world's largest pillow fight raised over £3,000 for charity.
Hotel staff recorded their names in history after smashing a 'bizarre' Guinness world record for the second time, The Times Series reported.
Martin Hurley, manager of the Tilling Road hotel, said: "Everyone was elated when we heard we'd broken the record.
"We thought we were in with a good chance but didn't think we would do as well as we did. It is a memorable day for the staff.
"We don't know yet if we're going to do it again next year but either way I'm sure we'll try something. Maybe curtain pulling or bed making – who knows.
"I wasn't here last year so it was fantastic to be a full part of it."
