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. Readers recommend trying new chef Dan Kenny’s ‘good, reasonably priced’ seasonal modern British menu.  ‘The pork and cheese croquette; squid bun; and potatoes and buttermilk, were really tasty. Sweet items (malted marshmallows, blood orange madeleines) were delicious.’  A cocktail bar serves craft beers as well as unusual cocktails. An inventive breakfast menu includes porridge 
with maple pecans, turmeric-soaked apricots, 
chia seeds and toasted cocoa nibs. (Kevin and Victoria Seymour)

Guest comments

'At the top of a delightful regency square looking down to the derelict West Pier;. Enthusiastic young staff; and a bedroom with character. Our a comfy sea view room on the fourth floor (reached by a tiny lift) had a high ceiling, the usual mix of repurposed furnishings, a funky mock antler chandelier, a large, comfortable bed. Good bedside lighting, less good storage. Small but well-equipped bathroom. Breakfast (aka brunch) is charged by the item. Set us up for a morning in the Lanes, just ten minutes' walk away. But the background pop music was disturbing. ' - Desmond and Jenny Balmer - December, 2018
'We stayed in room 21,"the best room in the house". It is fairly compact but has a perfect view across Regency Square; in fine weather the balcony would be wonderful. Bed linen was excellent. But there were only four spare clothes hangers. We were the first diners to experience the new tapas offering in The Set Café. Service and food were good and reasonably priced. Breakfast was not well organised, perhaps because not yet taken over by the Set. ' - Kevin and Victoria Seymour - January, 2018
