The Grand Brighton
Why We Love This Hotel

- The property had a £6 million refurbishment in 2012
- 2-AA-Rosette restaurant & top-rated afternoon tea
The white stucco-fronted Grand Brighton hotel sits on the town’s seafront promenade between the two piers. Following a £6 million refurbishment in 2012, the 4-star property combines Victorian period features -- including the lobby’s dramatic wrought-iron staircase -- with contemporary furnishings.
The colourful shops and criss-crossing alleys of The Lanes are a 10-minute walk from the hotel. Here you’ll find independent boutiques selling clothing, antiques and jewellery, as well as cafés and bars. The Royal Pavilion and Brighton Pier’s fairground attractions are less than 15 minutes away by foot.
The 2-AA-Rosette restaurant GB1 with its curved oyster bar specialises in modern seafood dishes, while the Victoria Lounge, Bar and Terrace serves cocktails and light bites, including afternoon tea -- rated among the top 14 in the country by The Independent. There is also a spa offering a range of treatments and a fitness centre.
All rooms feature classic contemporary décor and free Wi-Fi. It’s well worth upgrading to one of the sea-view rooms, many of which feature French doors and balconies overlooking Brighton’s promenade and beach.
