Expert review of Brightonwave
So central that you could be riding the bumper cars on the pier within minutes of finishing breakfast, this townhouse b&b is chic and refreshingly down-to-earth. I particularly like the owners’ commitment to local artists – all the work on the walls is for sale, and they don’t even take a commission.
It’s right in the thick of it, close to the Pavilion, the pier and the heart of Brighton’s buzzing gay scene. Let’s face it, there’s a tinge of shabbiness to this part of town and a quiet night is by no means guaranteed, but it’s a great spot for an action-packed stay.
Sleek, modern and gimmick-free, each of Brightonwave’s eight rooms is designed with comfort in mind. The colour scheme blends soft, sober shades of umber, straw and teal; contemporary paintings and photography add splashes of drama. The beds are generous, with good linen and cuddly, allergy-free duvets. Luxury touches include iPod docks, media players and a DVD library, plus a cache of small treats to make you feel welcome. Room 8, on the lower ground floor, has a private patio.
The downstairs dining room and lounge is transformed each time the owners hang a new batch of paintings. There’s a laptop and printer set up for guests to use at any time, and free WiFi throughout.
Breakfast is way above average, with luscious pancakes and other freshly-cooked dishes available on request.
The staff are thoughtful and flexible: a Continental breakfast in bed is never too much trouble, even if you don’t surface before 10am, and late check-outs are positively encouraged.
Weekenders, holidaymakers and business travellers looking for something stylish and a little different.
As in most of Brighton’s townhouse hotels, there’s a choice of larger rooms with glimpses of the sea at the front, and smaller, cheaper rooms at the back. Mid-week rates are considerably lower than Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.
