When Blanch House first opened about ten years or so ago it was the epitome of cutting edge cool. White leather all over the restaurant and prices to match. I imagine the growth of similar larger rivals made life difficult and the hotel passed into new hands a year ago.
Although the cold white leather has gone it has been replaced by a warmth generated by human kindness. The staff are all excellent; Charlotte and Greg excelled themselves and made me and my wife feel extremely at home.
The room was what we expected with the added twist of slightly mirrored flock wallpaper (don't worry it works) to give that Brighton weekend authenticity. The pub next door was a bit noisy but as we did not get back until well past closing time (it is Brighton, after all) that made no difference to our sleep. The breakfast was delicious and freshly cooked to order.
Parking is always an issue in this part of town but the offer of a parking permit made for an easier life.
I wish the (relatively) new owners every success with this venture - they've made a very good start.
