The Grand Brighton

Last updated: 28 December, 2023

Never has a hotel been so aptly named; everything about this seafront icon oozes grandeur, from the vast, vanilla-hued frontage that rises up above the busy beachfront promenade like a vast wedding cake, to the coolly stylish bedrooms – many with balconies looking straight out to the water – and cavernous dining spaces, softened with plush velvet furniture and leafy plants. 

This is peak old-school glamour, but there’s nothing faded about the Grand – dress up for cocktails among the artworks and potted palms in the Victoria Bar and indulge in the seafood-themed menu at Cyan, the hotel’s signature restaurant. 

Surrounding area

The Grand looms over Brighton’s bustling seafront, separated from the pebbles by the King’s Road, the city’s busy waterfront thoroughfare.  It can be noisy – and busy – as soon as you step out of the door; for a more peaceful vibe head west along the beach to the gastropubs and more genteel pace of Hove. 

The central location means you’re no more than a ten-minute walk from all of the main draws; the Theatre Royal, Brighton Dome, Royal Pavilion,  the Lanes and the bohemian-chic North Laine area.
