Location

New Steine is a pleasant garden square which dates back to the 1790s and opens onto the seafront on the south side. It always feels bright and airy, even in grey weather. To the north are the gay-friendly bars and shops of St James Street, a lively and raffish local high street. The Lanes and the Royal Pavilion are well under 10 minutes’ walk away.

Bedrooms

Although it’s a shame that much of the period character of this pair of late Georgian townhouses was lost when they were converted into a 20-room hotel, the rooms are generally comfortable and smart. It’s worth asking to be shown around as they vary a great deal in shape and size. You pay extra for an oblique sea view. Free WiFi is available throughout.

Public areas

Local artists are regularly invited to exhibit their work at the New Steine. There are meeting and function rooms with access to a patio garden on the lower ground floor.

Eating and drinking

Fans of hearty breakfasts can be sure of a cracking start to the day. The New Steine has earned a Sussex Breakfast Award for its top quality locally-sourced fare; the choices include freshly baked croissants and honey, bacon, sausages and eggs or smoked salmon. The owner is French and, for lunch and dinner, the hotel bistro serves authentic, everyday French cuisine – a rarity in Brighton.
