Brighton Marina is just over a mile and a half east of the city centre. It’s an odd hotchpotch – the marina itself, where waterfront restaurants and apartments overlook gleaming yachts bobbing in their berths, is ringed by ugly concrete storm defences, access roads, car parks and discount shops. The more appealing attractions include a cinema and fitness club.
The rooms are sleek, airy and modern, with a Scandinavian feel. There’s room to spread out, open a laptop or entertain the kids – activity kits are available on request, and the staff can also provide cots, sterilisers and Babytel monitoring. Some rooms have large French windows opening onto a balcony which lends itself to yacht-spotting.
Stylish and relaxed.
Eating and drinking
Hotel Seattle has a Sussex Breakfast Award for top-quality, locally-sourced produce. The restaurant also serves lunch and dinner, including a kids’ menu. The bar has a waterfront terrace which is a glorious spot for a sunset drink on a warm summer evening.
The service is relaxed, friendly and helpful.
