“Of the ‘new wave’ Brighton hotels that boast boutique luxury and contemporary style, this is our favourite, with the added bonus of its superb seafront location (the Pier is in view from many of the rooms, a splendid sight when lit at night). Bedrooms have been expertly designed, with huge beds; best are circular with freestanding-baths. On the ground floor there’s a 24-hour bar, and in the basement, the excellent Restaurant at Drakes. Service is particularly courteous and friendly.”
