Kate Hudson and her rocker husband Chris Robinson have been accused of breaking rules during their stay at a posh New York hotel.

The expectant parents stayed at Manhattan's exclusive SOHO HOUSE, and despite its strict no-pets rule, the couple have reportedly been staying their with their Pomeranian dog.

And sources say the celebrity pair have also managed to get around the establishment's ban on mobile phones in the restaurant - by asking members of staff to answer for them.

A source tells American magazine US WEEKLY that no staffers would dare challenge their rule-breaking "because they're just so nice".

And Soho House employees are also entertained by the couple's smoky room - in a city where indoor smoking has now been banned.

The source adds, "The cloud billowing out from their door is so potent."
