OVERVIEW

A fancy Georgian townhouse within easy reach of the beach and the Pavilion. Its cutesy rooms might be not huge but each is stylishly decked out and oh-so-comfortable. A full and fancy breakfast is a real treat, and who doesn't like a sweet sherry nightcap?

OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Located on a busy road, there's no car park, but cheap on-street parking is nearby. It's a five-minute walk to the beach and Kemptown village, while King George's party palace, the gregariously decorated Royal Pavilion, and the craft pubs and boho shops of North Laine are a seven-minute stroll away. It's well placed for the Pavilion and the beach, also Black Dove, a hip little bar on St James's Street.

By car: Brighton is roughly 2 hours' drive from London. Street parking is available at nearby Queens Park, or the underground pay and display car park on the High Street in Kemptown.

By train: Brighton train station is a 20-minute walk away and just over five minutes in a taxi. There are regular trains from various London stations, as well as stops along the south coast. Book trains to Brighton.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

This narrow, slate-grey Georgian townhouse hides a decidedly opulent interior, no doubt influenced by its grand neighbour, Prince Regent's extravagant Royal Pavilion. It's impeccably decorated throughout, and alongside the stylish grey, white and blue tones features an abundance of gilt, mahogany and chinoiserie embellishments.

THE FACILITIES

Owners Wayne and Diego are warm and affable hosts who are always on hand to help or offer advice on where to eat and drink. While there isn't an official attraction or restaurant guide, all rooms come equipped with David Bramwell's brilliant and entertaining Cheeky Guide to Brighton.
