The entrance hall has parquet flooring and a chandelier and is decorated with historic photos of Brighton.

There is a large open plan lounge for socialising, which will seat all your guests, with widescreen TV, DVD player with DVD library and Ipod docking station. Or ideal for relaxation amongst friends with a glass of wine, to chat and plan the evening ahead.

Info provided by tourist board


England’s loveliest and liveliest city by the sea. Brighton and Hove is fun, cosmopolitan and uniquely eccentric all year round. Regency architecture, pleasure pier, specialist shops, pavement cafés, lively arts scene and vibrant night-life, everything is in walking distance, so take time to explore and enjoy.And with a backdrop of the Sussex Downs and traditional English countryside, Brighton and Hove is a great base for exploring the region.

Brighton and Hove is the most enchanting, exciting, extraordinary seaside city in Britain. However brazen that may sound, it is no exaggeration. With its cosmopolitan air, oodles of restaurants, feverish nightlife and abundance of culture, the place defies comparison with anywhere else this side of the English Channel.

For centuries it has been regarded as a ‘pleasure dome’, and that’s not about to change. If you love life, welcome to Brighton and Hove. Info provided by tourist board.
