Brighton New Steine Sussex BN2 1PB

This seriously sexy option in Brighton's Kemp Town turns things on its head with it's rad reverse penthouse.

What’s not to like about this ‘well-rounded option in the fashionable Kemp Town district? Square by name but not by nature this super sexy property may just be the best designed place in Hove. There’s a general tendency amongst designer gaffs to add so many bells and whistles that the basic principles of lodging often get overlooked. Located just a few yards from Marine Parade and Brighton’s fabulously buzzing seafront, this rejects the tactless, garish tendencies of your average high-concept property in favour of calming, natural colours and a tasteful minimum of devices. Heres the deal.

  • Ten rooms decorated to a staggeringly high-standard.
  • Calming neutral colours with quiet bursts of colour.
  • U-Space well-being chair in room 1.
  • All rooms feature flat-screen TVs and DVD Players choice of movies in hotel foyer.
  • Stunning spacious bathrooms with awesome pressure in showers.
  • Snazzy original art work on walls.
  • Speciality coffees and teas served with plenty of fresh fruit at breakfast.
  • On street parking approx 20 per day.

Whilst theres occasionally more chrome than youd see at a car rally it fits in well with the general modernity. The flashes of colour also show up well against the well-oiled wooden floors. Its a lavish but controlled experience with some genuinely original ideas. Where else would you find floodlit glass stairs than in Brighton?
