The city is well known for its exciting and bohemian culture and the hotel, which played host to a eclectic mix of music stars from Boy George through to Sadé in its former life as the ‘Brighton Belle’ nightclub, retains this fun attitude. Room tariffs at the hotel include a free-range or locally sourced breakfast, with (of course, in Brighton) vegan and vegetarian options. Guests can also treat themselves to extras such as champagne on arrival, a massage or some pre- or post-dinner cocktails at the bar which features artwork from talented local artists.
