Facing the beach between the piers, the Metropole is ideally situated for access to everything in the centre of town. There’s private and public parking nearby and the station is well under a mile away.
The rooms vary a good deal in size and style. The spacious rooms and suites on the south side have plenty of character and make the most of the sea views, while those to the back of the building tend to be smaller, plainer and more functional, with a chain-hotel feel. Families can opt for triple or connecting rooms; a babysitting service is available on request.
Comfortable and smart.
Eating and drinking
The Windsor Restaurant serves contemporary European dishes in a splendid, high-ceilinged dining room with huge windows facing the sea, sparkling chandeliers and ornate period details. There’s also an informal terrace bar, where you can tuck into tapas and sangria.
The Metropole has the best fitness and wellness facilities of any Brighton hotel, with a gym, Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna, spa and a small but attractive indoor pool which hosts regular kids’ sessions.
The staff are helpful and professional.
