About
Description
Occupying a classic Victorian building in the heart of Bexhill and just a “pebble’s throw” from the sea-front - the Driftwood features just 6 beautiful and eclectic bedrooms, thoughtfully designed with interesting and More quirky furniture, wonderful mid-century style light fittings and bags of character. Each room is different, with its own distinct personality; but all feature a mixture of architectural treatments including rustic grey washed oak wall cladding, exposed character brickwork and traditional wall panelling in quirky heritage colours There is a wonderful honesty about the rooms with simple muted colours and a subtle blend of classic and contemporary design, making for a very cool and comfortable experience. Each room has a classic style, fully tiled en-suite bathroom with a generous walk in rain shower and simple traditional sanitary ware and fittings All rooms have high quality Hypnos mattresses and crisp white linen with stylish cushions and throws and also feature large bespoke headboards most with chesterfield style leather buttoning but one with a “driftwood” style grey washed oak version All rooms have a bespoke classic style wardrobe unit with built in tea and coffee station with retro style fridge and all rooms have a large wall mounted flat screen TV and a retro style clock radio and other accessories. The 2 larger sea view rooms also have a chesterfield sofa bed and a small café style table and chairs. Restaurant Situated on the ground floor behind a traditional style frontage which can open up in the warmer weather is the lovely 30 cover restaurant which has a laid back rustic “Brasserie style” with sanded timber flooring, exposed brickwork and rustic grey washed oak panelling and areas of feature tiled flooring, traditional style pendant and wall lighting with a nautical flavour completes the look. Deep buttoned leather banquette seating, fully upholstered brasserie style chairs and bespoke grey washed solid oak tables combine to make a wonderful relaxed environment with real warmth and charm and with a distinctive and timeless quality that will appeal to all. The open kitchen at the back allows views of the talented kitchen team at work and the small dispense bar ensures that you have everything you need to enjoy your visit Less
