My friend and I decided to go to Brighton last weekend and having between us tried, and been disappointed with, a variety of chain hotels in the town over the years, I was very pleased when she suggested trying an individual, boutique hotel that she had found.
I certainly wasn’t disappointed. We arrived at lunchtime, parking permits were swiftly provided and there was no problem finding a parking space on a street nearby. The room was ready for us and was as nice as other reviewers have already described - deep velvet carpets, amazingly comfortable beds, tasteful décor, flat screen TV, White Company toiletries and more little touches than you get in many a 5 star establishment.
Wanting to venture out into Brighton Jamie couldn’t have been more helpful in providing us ideas of where to go and shop and where to go and eat and drink, all carefully marked on a map by him as we discussed the kind of things that we were interested in. He was great throughout the weekend and seemed genuinely keen to hear what we had thought of the places we had been to make sure any future recommendations were up to date.
Breakfast was also fantastic. The breakfast room is lovely and the touches in there were again indicative of how this place goes the extra mile - pressed white tablecloths and napkins, muted colours, immaculate china and cutlery, flowers, soft music and a delicious array of hot and cold choices expertly cooked by Steve.
I will definitely be back. It was great to find somewhere that could settle for doing a lot less, but chooses not to.
