A modern take on the traditional seaside guesthouse, Nineteen has a cool, contemporary vibe, largely thanks to its covetable artwork and specialist gin bar. It has seven sleekly decorated rooms, some with oblique sea views. And you simply can't beat the central location between the beach and St James's Street.

Behind the oh-so-blue facade of this narrow Victorian townhouse is the antithesis of a traditional seaside boarding house. Almost like walking into an art gallery, the stark-white halls are bedecked with a rash of contemporary art. The seven rooms are light and airy with pops of breezy seaside shades.


Dan and Liam (and Gracie the dog) are exceptional hosts. Friendly, welcoming and brimming with local knowledge and recommendations. Liam is very knowledgeable about gin, and it's well worth sampling a few in the lower ground floor Gin Den. Dogs are welcome to stay if booked in advance.
