Brighton is a hugely diverse and multicultural city that somehow manages to successfully combine a bohemian cool with traditional classicism. The hotels in Brighton tend to reflect this. Of course, the seafront is lined with perhaps the finest hotels in the city, including the famous Grand Hotel, The Brighton Metropole and the Queens Hotel. There is easy rail access to London and line service to Portsmouth and Southampton.
The splendid, luxurious Grand Hotel takes centre stage on Brighton's famously vibrant seafront. The iconic Victorian building is impressively imposing. The Metropole remains the largest conference hotel in the whole of the south, while Queens Hotel includes some 94 luxury rooms in addition to a gym, a swimming pool and a spa.
If you are determined to stay on the seafront but are travelling on a budget, the affordable Thistle Hotel is a good, high-quality alternative. The Thistle is situated on the Kings Road seafront just past the A23 junction.
However, if you prefer something off the main seafront and a little more central, either the Premier Inn or the Jurys Inn are ideal, especially for those on a relatively limited budget. Located on North Street, the Premier Inn is right in the middle of just about everything, while the Jurys Inn is located in the trendy Seven Dials area, which is home to some of the finest restaurants in the city.
Many people, however, choose to stay in the Hove area, which is generally a little quieter (and certainly much posher). Here you have a variety of options. The Best Western Hotel, which is located on Kingsway just past Hove street, is an affordable, good-quality option.
These are just a few examples of the hotels in Brighton. In reality there is a huge mix of accommodation here, from classic bed and breakfasts to five-star retreats. There are also plenty of budget-chain brands, plus a massive range of self-catering accommodation that is mostly found along the coastal road.
