Good Hotel Guide Review
Charlotte and Justin Salisbury’s eclectic hotel distils relaxed, creative Brighton into a cool Regency town house. Original artwork, murals and limited edition prints decorate bedrooms, many of which overlook the seafront. One Guide reader this year enjoyed Room 21’s ‘perfect view’, and ‘big Le Creuset mugs for the excellent tea and fresh milk; a perfect shared treat in the freestanding bath – who needs champagne?’ Less praise, however, for the few coat-hangers and ‘standard non-fluffy towels’. Quirky vintage completes the look. An apartment with kitchenette was added next door in 2018, but readers recommend trying new chef Dan Kenny’s ‘good, reasonably priced’ tapas menu in the Set bar, which also serves cocktails and craft beers. ‘The pork and cheese croquette; squid bun; and potatoes and buttermilk, were really tasty. Sweet items (malted marshmallows, blood orange madeleines) were delicious.’ Seasonal tasting menus with fashionably basic descriptions – trout crab, mussel – are served in the Set restaurant. An inventive breakfast menu includes porridge with maple pecans, turmeric-soaked apricots, chia seeds and toasted cocoa nibs. (Kevin and Victoria Seymour)
