Seafront Penthouse With Private Sun Terrace
Penthouse | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This is a beautiful, newly refurbished, one-bedroom luxury penthouse apartment at the top of an iconic seafront building. Stunning panoramic sea views from the 7.3 x 1.7m private sun terrace with doors opening directly onto the terrace from the living room and bedroom.
The apartment is furnished and equipped to a very high standard with everything you may need for your stay, including high quality Egyptian cotton bedlinen and White Company towels. Fast wireless broadband throughout the apartment and wall-mounted LCD televisions in both living room and bedroom with Virgin TV / films package. Beautiful bespoke Italian blue granite kitchen and stunning designer bathroom with under-floor heating. We are delighted to be in Tripadvisor's top 10 guest-rated of all holiday apartments in Brighton and Hove.
Embassy Court is a beautiful and historic listed 1930s Modernist building, and the apartment and its immediate neighbours were the first ever penthouses in the UK. The architect Wells Coates's top priority for the apartment was pleasure and making the most of the wonderful top floor view. The private sun terrace, windows and glass doors therefore run the length of the apartment giving a real sense of openness and space. Note from the pictures that the bedroom is small and designed purely for sleeping, but with its whole wall made up of windows and French doors you can sit up in bed and look out to sea!
The apartment is close to all central Brighton has to offer with its trendy shops and restaurants, the Pier, and The Lanes, and has many fantastic amenities on its doorstep including one of the best rated restaurants in Brighton (The Gingerman). Waitrose supermarket is a few minutes walk. Brighton and Hove stations are a few minutes by taxi, Gatwick Airport thirty minutes by train and London fifty minutes by train.
Please note that the apartment is ideal for a couple. While it can sleep four (with sofabed) it is a small apartment so is best suited to two adults with up to two children. Bookings for three or four adults may be considered but it would be a very tight squeeze and we generally prefer not to crowd the apartment or our neighbours.
LIVING ROOM (4.2m x 3.2m)
Sea views stretching across entire length of room with doors opening onto sun terrace. Real Scandinavian wood floors, sofa seating for three (converts to sofabed), wall-mounted LCD TV, broadband and wi-fi, dining table and chairs for four.
KITCHEN (2.6m x 1.9m)
Fully fitted and well equipped kitchen with real Italian blue granite surfaces and all new Siemens appliances (dishwasher, washer-dryer, fridge-freezer, microwave, convection hob and oven). Far-reaching views across Brighton and Hove to the Sussex Downs. Real Scandinavian wood floors.
BEDROOM (2.7m x 2.5m)
Small bedroom with enormous sea views along the length of the room with doors opening onto the sun terrace. Double bed, wall-mounted LCD TV, small wardrobe, real Scandinavian wood floors.
BATHROOM (2.4m x 2m)
Italian fully tiled bathroom with under-floor heating and deep bath with rainfall shower over.
SUN TERRACE (7.3m x 1.7m)
Fully tiled sun terrace with designer planters from Chelsea Flower Show award winner Fernando Gonzalez, stunning panoramic sea views, dining seating for two.
Parking can be arranged on request at extra charge. There is lift access but as a listed building with some steps and the lifts being very small we regret that there is no wheelchair access. Cot and highchair can be provided on request free of charge.

We had a lovely week here. The flat was in an excellent location with a fantastic direct view of the sea and also of Hove from the kitchen. Everything in the flat was to a high standard and we had e… More

"Wow factor apartment!"
This was the perfect apartment for us, small though it is (as it is described) - it had everything we needed and a great vibe. We loved waking up each morning 10 floors above the promenade and being a… More

"Fabulous view of Brighton's seafront"
The apartment is on the top floor of the building and has a great balcony and view overlooking the sea front. When the sun shines, the balcony gets the sun for a large part of the day. The apartment has everything you need with modern equipment and decor. The double bedroom is very small and not for those who like to be surrounded by space, but we found the bed very comfortable and the room perfectly adequate. The parking space is an added bonus in Brighton. Although we did not meet Olivia in person, she was very friendly and responsive to our questions etc. We will definitely be returning another time.

"Wow, what a fabulous place"
Don't like Brighton and had no intention of going there, noisy crowded and a bit tacky. However, looked and looked for a hotel with a seaview for a quiet break after an incredibly stressful time. In desperation looked in Brighton, still no suitable hotel, checked finally for a rental and found this place. GOOD CALL!
Fantastic sea view, and high enough that the noise and dramas of a Brighton weekend could have been on another planet. So much better than the best Hotel, as we just sat on the balcony, cooked our own food (big saving on overpriced noisy restaurants) and enjoyed the killer view.
The place wasn't big but absolutely perfect for a couple, and we reckon we'll go back and take the kids - we'll fit, and it'll be worth it.
Finally, the icing on the cake was the very best and most genuine service from the owner/manager. No customer care course graduate this, just someone who was enthusiastic, friendly and efficient. Nothing matches this.
However hard I try I can't think of anything negative to say - the only downside was the bongo drummer on the beach below in teh middle fo the night, and I can't blame the owner for that!

I already fell in love with the apartment at Embassy Court when I saw the photos for the first time. After booking it I could hardly wait to get there. Often, when expectations are that high, you're going to be disappointed. Not so in this case. Everything was even better than expected. When I entered the apartment I was surrounded by light and brightness (I was really lucky with the weather!), and I immediately felt welcome and at home. I felt like this every single time I opened the door to the apartment, and I was looking forward to going "home" every day of my two-week stay. At this point I should perhaps mention that Brighton and Hove have so much to offer that you could stay there for weeks without wishing to get back inside. But Embassy Court is situated in the perfect spot, right between Brighton and Hove, and convenient to walk to every place you could imagine. Great restaurants, cafès, shops and supermarkets are literally just around the corner, as are bus stops and of course the beach! When you stay at Embassy Court you can enjoy the busy life in a great city and yet, within a minute, you can be up in heaven, in a peaceful and quiet apartment at eye level with the seagulls.
The bathroom and kitchen are much bigger than you expect from the photos and extremely well equipped. Everything is new and shiny and spotlessly clean, and the whole apartment is very tastefully furnished. Sheets and towels are provided, and as I was staying for two weeks I was even offered a fresh set of towels for the second week. And the bed was very, very comfortable! The giant flatscreen TV is much better than the one we have at home and allows you to watch hundreds of channels. Theoretically, because in practice you will only want to look outside and enjoy the amazing sea view! By the way, most reviews forget to mention that there is also a fabulous view over Brighton and Hove from the rear!
What also made staying at this apartment such a joy was the fact that the whole booking, arriving and checking-in-process was so simple, and dealing with the owner, Olivia, was always a pleasure. She responds to every question you might have within hours or even minutes and is extremely friendly. The same is true for Haley who greeted me on arrival and showed me around. Thank you both very much!
I could go on for hours praising the apartment, but who wants to read such long reviews? There is only one last thing I would like to point out: the apartment is also heaven for everybody who is interested in modern architecture. Embassy Court is a landmark of Modernist architecture which has been restored to its original beauty only recently. It's a joy just to walk through the gorgeous entrance door, and if you let yourself in for it, a stay at Embassy Court can even take you back in time. Heaven indeed!

"A magical weekend away!"
Classic style with a modern twist, [--] is probably the coolest place we've stayed.
Great location, right on the seafront and perfect for us as my wife and I were both doing the marathon.
Olivia's customer service is excellent, nothing was too much trouble and she made sure we had everything we needed for our 6 month old son. We only wished we could have stayed longer!

"Excellent apartment in good position."
When my wife and I arrived at the apartment block we quickly made contact and were shown our parking spot and given the keys to the apartment. Everything was clean, modern and immaculately prepared.
The apartment is situated on the tenth floor facing south so it has a spectacular view out to the sea. There is access from the lounge to the balcony so you can see the beach and the remnants of the west pier across the road.
The bedroom is snug but has a very comfortable bed and a flat-screen TV. Bathroom is immaculate. The lounge is spacious and comfortable with a larger TV.
The kitchen has everything you need, but we did not use anything except the kettle, toaster and fridge. There are so many restaurants in the vicinity we always ate out.
The location of the apartment was perfect for us, with a reasonable walk to the main pier, the Pavilion and Museum, the Lanes shopping and the North Lanes. It was far enough away to be quiet but still accessible to the centre. After walking around the Pavilion and the shops it was perfect sitting on the balcony in the late afternoon sun!
We found the apartment to be excellent, decorated to a very high standard and maintained very well. We were very impressed and are considering going back again sometime in the future. The owner Olivia was very organised and made sure everything was OK for us. (The return of the deposit was also made very quickly.)
