Directly overlooking the sea this is a beautiful, newly refurbished, one-bedroom luxury penthouse apartment at the top of an iconic seafront building. Stunning panoramic and uninterrupted direct sea views from the living room, bedroom, and 7.3 x 1.7m private sun terrace with doors opening onto the terrace from both 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 and wall-mounted LCD televisions in both living room and bedroom with Virgin TV / films package. Beautiful bespoke Italian blue granite kitchen and stunning bespoke designer bathroom with luxurious 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 penthouse apartments to be built 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 sea-facing private sun terrace, windows, and glass doors therefore run the entire 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 eclectic 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.
A three-night minimum stay applies to Bank Holiday and Brighton Marathon weekends, four-night minimum to High Summer, Easter, Christmas and New Year periods.
LIVING ROOM (4.2m x 3.2m)
Directly facing the seafront with sea views stretching across entire length of room and doors opening onto the private sea-facing sun terrace. Real Scandinavian wood floors, sofa seating for three (converts to sofabed with pocket-sprung mattress), wall-mounted LCD TV, wi-fi, dining table and chairs for four.
KITCHEN (2.6m x 1.9m)
Fully fitted and well equipped bespoke 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)
Directly facing the seafront, small bedroom with enormous sea views along the length of the room and doors opening onto the private sea-facing sun terrace. Double bed, wall-mounted LCD TV, small wardrobe, real Scandinavian wood floors.
BATHROOM (2.4m x 2m)
Bespoke Italian fully tiled bathroom with luxurious under-floor heating and deep bath with Hansgrohe rainfall shower over.
SUN TERRACE (7.3m x 1.7m)
Directly facing the seafront, 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. Travel cot with mattress and highchair provided on request free of charge.

"Ideal,inside and out!"
A great amount of care has been taken with the furnishing and decorating of this apartment,plus the kitchen and bathroom are outstanding.The terrace is roomy and the sea views fantastic,as far as the marina in one direction and far into Hove the other.For us,the location is perfect,walkable into Hove or into Brighton,all along the seafront,plus only a few minutes walk to Western Road with it's choice of shops,pubs and restaurants. Despite the floor to ceiling windows and doors (fantastic views!) there was no traffic or street noise to be heard. Building security was good,the lifts small,but vital for the 10th floor. All in all we loved it ,a perfect short break base. Olivia,who I liaised with,was most helpful and friendly.

"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!
