Hotels

Jurys Inn Brighton

101 Stroudley Rd, Brighton BN1 4DJ, UK – 01273 862121

Booked here as a surprise for a friend's 50th. It was a perfect location to access the pier, the Lanes, the beach on foot with only a 15 minute walk to the train station. Beautifully decorated in the common areas as well as the rooms. I don't know what scent they had in the reception area but it smelt lovely every time we were there! If ever in Brighton again, I would go back.

Very pleasant stay. Was an early birthday present from my daughter. They really made an effort for me with a birthday greeting on the mirror, room upgrade, complimentary wine and coffee. Breakfast was very good too. Would stay again. Staff very polite and friendly.

The Old Ship Hotel

King's Road, Brighton BN1 1NR, UK – 01273 329001

Excellent experience. Friendly, helpful staff. The building is old, has character but no air conditioning; this was not a major problem even in very hot weather as the rooms are nice and airy with high ceilings. We had a room with a sea view via a bay window. It was only marred by the outdoor DJ immediately below our window for 4 hours one day, and the singer with backing track for 3 hours another day.

Great seating overlooking the sea. They charge a 10% gratuity like most places these days. Beware of it. We had great salads with chicken for 15pounds each. Not bad considering the location. Prepare to pay when you order, there are no tabs for people sitting on the front (understandably).

Hilton Brighton Metropole

Kings Rd, Brighton BN1 2FU, UK – 01273 775432

I decided to ignore all the negative feedback about, no air conditioning and rude staff and booked at the Hilton for my family. Thank goodness I did l. I booked two rooms on the sixth floor. One had air con and the other one didn’t. Both rooms were fantastic. The windows open just enough for a nice flow of air. It was 35degrees on one of the nights I stayed. Not much any hotel can do about that. Either way, the staff was excellent. I’ve already stayed at the Grand and now love them both. From check in to departure all was wonderful. I booked a meal at the hotel restaurant and again, faultless and the food was amazing. The break was worth every penny, Easy access to all areas for shopping, sightseeing and pier fun fair. Cheers to you all who run the hotel and I will be returning without hesitation. Best Wishes, Robert, wife and daughter.

I hovered over three stars for my visit here. Don't get me wrong it's a decent hotel. The beds are comfy room size is a bit on the small side. Mine was nearly all bed. Excellent breakfast here though and staff were friendly and attentive. The reason I considered a low score is due to the fact there was no air con in the rooms and the small fan provided made little difference in the current UK heat.

Pubs, Gastro Pubs and Bars

The Better Half Pub

1 Hove Pl, Hove BN3 2RG, UK – 01273 737869

Superb dog-friendly place with fantastic food. The pub has a nice warm feeling and has a nice buzz as it was nicely filled. The food is superb, the menu is short (it fits on a single page), but it has something for everyone. A mix of British pub food done excellently, veggie options including a Malaysian-style curry, steak, fresh fish and burgers, cheeseboards and more. There didn't seem to be any vegan options except the hummus as starter and the side salad, so bare that in mind if visiting with a vegan. Everyone found something they fancied. The desserts are all classic British deserts - you can't go wrong. The Scotch egg in the starters is fantastic, but massive for a starter! Cut it in half and share it with someone so you have room for the rest. We loved our visit to The Better Half and would definitely visit again.

This pub was an absolute gem of a find, I live fairly close and had never heard of it. The food is nothing short of stunning and with a nice mix to suit all comers. All meals are reasonably priced and a good range from light snack to large meal. The desserts are epic and worth a visit just to sample them. The drinks menu's are great with a broad range from beers and ciders up to reasonably expensive wines. I would give this place 6 stars if I could.

The Dorset Bar & Kitchen

28 North Rd, Brighton BN1 1YB, UK – 01273 605423

Quick and friendly service. Delicious food and big portions. Great burger selection, I’d go back again! This was a perfect spot for dinner before going to a Komedia club show across the street. I had the fish n chips which came w mushy peas and tartar sauce. It was amazing!

Love this interesting quirky pub sometimes has great live music good for an afternoon jar , good location in the Lanes !

The Foragers

3 Stirling Pl, Hove BN3 3YU, UK – 01273 733134

Hidden gem, lively outside space. Really nice little pub. Food is on the pricey side.

Great pub, stunning service usually, food always amazing. It’s got two main areas plus a garden, the main bar area is very convivial and friendly, the seated area round the corner is a little more intimate but also where larger parties are usually seated, so it’s a case of taking your chances. Having said this, even with a large group seated, it’s never been a bad experience. The only small fly in the ointment is being told off for trying to order food at the bar when we’d been waiting for 23 minutes for someone to come to the table (wasn’t clock watching, just hangry, promise!). I understand the reasoning behind asking people to remain seated, but when it feels as if the table has been forgotten it’s tough to hear. I would like to stress that this has happened maybe 3 or 4 times out of several hundred visits, and is certainly not normal. The standard here is very high, staff are always knowledgable of the food being served and always a good laugh - keep it up!

Travel Super Market search and compare prices for hotels all over the world. Could also be useful for you. I This said I was told by a hotelier that the way to get cheap rooms is to ring up the week before and ask for the weekend rate. You can usually get an absolute bargain as they will trying to book all the rooms that they have not sold! Could be worth a try!
