The hotel has a lovely atmosphere, great bar and restaurant and the staff were lovely, polite and helpful. However for the price, more expensive than a London hotel of the same calibre, it was lacking in several areas. The hotel is up a lane and is not on the beach front. This meant that the sea view suite was a glimpse of sea between the end of the 2 buildings on the end of the street. We felt a bit conned by this as had paid handsomely for a sea view. Also, the hotel is surrounded by bars, restaurants and clubs and being a light sleeper, I was awoken every 15 minutes from 11pm until 5am by drunken revellers passing by on the street below. This fact alone meant that I would not visit the hotel again. If you are a light sleeper, this is not the place for you. There are only 2 floors to the hotel and the top floor is a loft suite so unless you book this, you are one floor above street level. The room was lovely and the 2 roll top baths in the bedroom rather novel. However, the bathroom floor had not been cleaned.
The Bistro however was excellent, though pricey and we enjoyed both dinner and breakfast there.The service was attentive and the sommelier very knowledgeable and gracious.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel du Vin Brighton is situated in the Lanes conservation area, a pebbles' throw from the seafront. Its 49 bedrooms are housed in a collection of eccentric Gothic revival and mock Tudor buildings erected, appropriately by a wine merchant on the site of an old inn. Among many interesting features are a heavily carved staircase and bizarre gargoyles, while the original double-height hall now houses the wine bar and Laroche tasting room. The perfect venue for a picturesque wedding or party is the impressively large and airy Dome room. For the best tankered of local ale, Pub du Vin is one of Brighton city center's treasures with its classic pub dining. Out with the Brighton hotel is the wonder and inspiring town itself, with quaint streets dotted with fabulous shops, and of course the famous pier and promenade. ... more less
