Brighton Luxury Hotels

Best areas in Brighton for luxury hotels

Brighton has been a popular getaway spot since the Victorian era, and that tradition continues today. The luxury hotels reflect its status as a playground for Brits and overseas visitors alike, with deluxe pads to be found along the seafront, overlooking the famous pebble beach. You can also find high-end accommodation further inland, in the genteel Lanes area. Or, if you want to soak up the Brighton buzz, book a top hotel in the lively and bohemian Kemptown district, amid hip pubs and coffee houses.

Top luxury hotels in Brighton

The Grand Brighton is a resplendent Victorian palace overlooking the wide, surging expanse of the sea. It exudes old world glamour, with regal rooms and a chic bar where you can relax over fine wines and cocktails. The Hilton Brighton Metropole is another seafront pad worth your attention, complete with indulgent spa treatment rooms and an indoor swimming pool to unwind in. For a truly historic stay, try the Old Ship Hotel, which dates back centuries, has an on-site gym, and has pride of place on the waterfront.

Where to find the best fine dining in Brighton

This is a town famous for its casual, artisan cafés, but you can also savor exquisite fine dining dishes in Brighton. The Lanes is studded with elegant places to eat, from marble-tiled seafood restaurants serving razor clams and lobster thermidor, to hip eateries where artful dishes of seasonal ingredients are served up on small plates, tapas-style. The grand hotels of the seafront also house high-end restaurants serving whole roasted fish and dry-aged steaks, while the North Laine is also worth investigating for trendy places to grab a bite.

The most unique things to do in Brighton

Some call it kitsch, others think it’s a vision of exoticism, but whatever you think of it, the Royal Pavilion has to be seen, and there’s no better way to do that than with a private after hours tour. Built for the Prince Regent, it’s a shameless blend of Indian and Chinese architectural styles, and when you step beyond its doors, you’ll be ravished by ornate wallpaper designs, cavorting dragon ornaments, gilded chandeliers, and vast dining and lounge areas that have served as the setting for films and TV shows. Afterwards, head to Brighton Marina, where you can be taught how to ride a jet ski, or step on board the i360 – billed as the world’s tallest moving observation tower, it provides panoramic views across Sussex from its futuristic, UFO-like capsule, and can be hired exclusively.

Best ways to get around Brighton

It’s entirely possible to spend your whole visit to Brighton without having to make use of any transportation. This is an eminently walkable place, and you’ll be able to stroll happily from the wide beach over to the buzzing boutiques, vintage stalls, and hip eateries of the North Laine in a matter of minutes. That said, you can always order a taxi to get to neighboring Hove, which has its own shops and restaurants to discover, or to Brighton Marina.
