I was a bit dubious after reading some reviews but I need not have worried.
Checked in at around 12am but the room wasn't ready, reception staff were very pleasant and professional. They took my mobile and called around an hour later to say that the room was ready.
The room was on the 3rd floor, no lift, so if you are not able to climb stairs I would suggest a low floor. The room was lovely, really bright & airy with a very "New England" feel. There was a flat screen TV, DVD player and Ipod player. The bathroom was very modern with an oversized bath (I am not that tall and I could have swam lengths in it :o) )
The lounge/bar area is really cosy even on a warm summers evening.
My only complaint about the room is that we had a twin room and the beds, although comfy were not very wide and the pillows were awful. They seemed to have lost any padding that they once had. If I were staying more than the 1 night I would have asked for different ones.
Breakfast - Excellent service, cooked to order....delicious and kept me full all day.
The location of the hotel is excellent, at the bottom on Ship St just a 2 minute walk to the seafront and 2 minutes the other way to the Lanes.
- 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
