Enjoying a premium spot opposite the beach and close to the Palace Pier makes this an ideal location for a stay in Brighton. In an area known as Kemp Town many things are on your doorstep, with Brighton city centre only a 10 minute stroll away. A key feature of this property is that it is lucky enough to be on the sea front and also on the corner of an attractive garden square giving rise to its quirky and yet rather old school name.

Kemp Town – Local Amenities

Stretching as far as Brighton Marina, Kemp Town is a mix of grand seafront crescents, elegant squares and a High Street shopping area with a lively village feel. There are many businesses thriving in this Bohemian part of Brighton, you’ll find a vast array of delicious foods, quirky antique shops, bars, hotels, restaurants and cafes. The beach front opposite also has many attractions including artists studios and Volk’s railway which goes to the marina and the Yellowave beach sports venue.


Breakfast is included in all of the room rates if you book through our website. You can help yourself to an appetising selection of cereal, fruit salad, yogurt and pastries from the buffet  followed by a cooked breakfast including, full English, eggs benedict, blueberry pancakes, smoked salmon with scrambled egg and porridge.

After dark, check out Brighton’s seafront clubs and bars, nestling underneath the Victorian beachfront arches.
