The Experience

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 Royal 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 and an old garage door that slides back to reveal The Clubhouse is a buzzing hangout from coffee to cocktails, breakfast to bedtime. A light and airy cafe space with sea views through big windows and exciting foodie pop ups.  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. All are interesting and colourful.

Perfectly located on Regency Square, close to everything in central Brighton, this place packs a lot of style into each space, the rooms, and the elegant salon and bar, both with sea views. Staff were helpful and attentive without being too present. Enjoying a pot of tea in the bay window, overlooking the calm on the square, without the hubbub of Brighton's fun but non stop shopping and entertainment areas, was a welcome respite. Rooms were inevitably small, but had all we needed and the art throughout made the stay fun, with surprises around every corner.

Pippa, Briancon

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.

Joanna, Charpont

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!

Charlie & Justin Salisbury

Justin Salisbury started his small boutique chain almost by accident when he took over his parents' run down guesthouse in Brighton when he was just 20. He did that place up on a shoestring by inviting local artists to decorate the rooms in return for a free stay. This turned out to be his winning formula and together with his wife Charlie they now have several Artist Residences.
