“Cool apartment + great location” I stayed at the Brighton Rock Beach Apartment for 3 nights with 3 mates for my birthday.
The location is brilliant, literally a few minutes walk from Brighton Pier and the seafront is at the bottom of the road.
Kemptown is on your doorstep - late night convenience shop up the road, greasy spoon cafe round the corner, 3 small supermarkets and a number of pubs and restaurants extremely close by.
The city centre/shops are also a very short walk away - whether it's the Brighton Lanes or North Laine.
The apartment sleeps 4 comfortably - the main bedroom has an incredibly comfy memory foam mattress (with a king size bed) and there is an inflatable air mattress (with pump) which sleeps 2 and also a fold out z-bed which could also sleep 2 small people. (You only get 1 double duvet for these 2 though).
The place is probably better suited to 2 couples or a family with kids than a group of friends but I was lucky as my mates decided that I could have the king size bed all to myself as it was my birthday, just as well as most of them snore loudly!
The lounge is reasonably big and there's Sky+ HD, free wi-fi as well as a Blu-Ray/DVD player for pre or post going out entertainment.
Main bedroom has a 50 inch LED TV which is connected to the Sky box in the lounge.
Kitchen is stocked up with cutlery, plates, glasses, mugs, microwave, oven, fridge and freezer etc.
There's a small private patio area with a table and 4 chairs outside - but it is overlooked by the upper floors of the building.
Shower room/toilet is ok. Two of my mates had trouble with the hot water but I never had any problems.
The owner Carl is always close at hand for any problems and he only lives up the road but we never had to call him for anything.
There are steps leading down to the front door so this may not be suitable for people with disabilities, also mind your head when you go up the stairs, I'm pretty short and I still smacked my head once!
You can park for free on Queen's Park Road - but you might struggle to get a space at the weekend. We arrived late on Thursday afternoon and there was only 2 or 3 free spaces. Otherwise you can buy parking permits from Carl to park close by and for cheaper than the normal parking meter price.
I've stayed in 3 different apartments in Brighton and this was one of the best. Definitely recommended and would definitely go back there again! Complimentary bottle of wine and Milk Tray too!
“Great location within comfortable walking distance of both old and new town.” Lovely apartment with wonderful sea view . Slightly disappointed with mezzanine sleeping accommodation but sofa bed in lounge was comfortable and easy to use.
“Beautiful Apartment” Beautiful apartment, spotless, comfortable with everything you need. Quiet,
Secure building, Great location easy walk to the sea front. Very nice park close by.
Owners Mike & Olly are a friendly couple, nothing would be too much trouble.
We wouldn't hesitate to book again ,in fact we would be very happy to live in the apartment on a permanent basis. Absolutely loved it.
“Excellently presented apartment with all facilities.” Stayed here for a week over the Aug Bank Holiday, this place has everything, location, facilities, space and quality. Would stay here again in a heartbeat, in fact booked up for next year already.
