Quirky art hotel in the heart of trendy Brighton – there’s a good bar, stylish rooms and some lovely food in the hip restaurant

Read guest comments

At the top of a square, looking down to the sea, a cute hotel with an arty vibe. You’re bang in the middle of Brighton with all the stuff you’d want on your doorstep: galleries, bars, the pier and the Brighton Pavilion. As for the hotel, good food, great staff, relaxed informality and a playful style are the hallmarks here. You get stripped boards, exposed brick walls, then an old garage door that slides back to reveal a chic restaurant with an open kitchen on display. In typical AR style, it’s now one of the best places to eat in Brighton – delicious tasting menus that get you talking as well as eating. You’ll find cool art, the odd wall clad in corrugated iron, even an ornamental drainpipe! Bedrooms come in different styles. Some have Pop Art murals, others come in Regency colours, a new batch are super-cool with baths in the room. Most have small, stylish shower rooms, one has a decked terrace. There’s a quirky bar for cocktails, a ping pong table that doubles as a boardroom, then lunch in the front restaurant with views through big windows down to the sea. The beach waits below.

"Loved our stay here. We got a great deal through booking our stay on Black Friday. We had a small room on the fourth floor, with a magnificent mural by Jo Peel. The mini bar was full of unusual and tasty nibbles and drinks. The breakfasts were consistently delicious for all three days of our stay. The bed was so comfy, we slept incredibly well. The hotel is situated perfectly for exploring the town centre and the seafront."

"Little bit shabby despite the makeover, but so welcoming and comfortable. Pristine bathrooms and bed-linen and delicious breakfast. Best of all were the helpful and friendly staff. I enjoyed myself so much, I stayed an extra might!"
