Anyone know Brighton well?

Trying to find a place to stay- can anyone give a general breakdown of what the various neighborhoods are? Would prefer a quieter area that might have a few good pubs and restaurants nearby.. not quite in the center of things, etc. We will be there in July, but during the week, not for the weekend. thank you!!

1. Re: Anyone know Brighton well?

How much do you want to spend? Double room? How many nights? Brighton is pub and restaurant city, so you won't have to worry on that score. But we can give more useful advice if we know your budget.

Oh yes, budget will be a factor. Staying for 2 or 3 nights and would like to keep it as close to 100 per night total ($173 approx) as we can, if possible? thx!

Oops, sorry... it's 2 of us. We're on our honeymoon, so we'd like to stay somewhere nice, but it doesn't have to be too posh or anything... clean will do!

Brighton Pavilions Hotel gets great reviews, is not in the centre of town, and is within your budget. You can find the room tariff here: http://www.brightonpavilions.com/tariff.htm

In the same side of town is the Sea Spray Boutique Hotel, same sort of prices, and generally good reviews. http://www.seaspraybrighton.co.uk/rates.html

On the other side of the town centre is The Adelaide, which is more basic and should be well within your budget, but it too gets good reviews. It's in Regency Square, which has a lot of B&Bs of varying quality. At the bottom of the square is the Regency seafood restaurant, which is great (next to it is the Melrose - both are better than most of the fish places in the city).

5. Re: Anyone know Brighton well?

i would suggest you heads west (of brighton) thinki Hove and Brighton borders. Ive copies this from a previous post.

The Lansdowne Place http://www.lansdowneplace.co.uk This is just off the seafront at the eastern end of Hove (bottom of Lansdowne Place). It was formerly known as the Dudley, but has recently been substantially refurbished and is now classed as a Boutique/Spa Hotel (with prices to match!). Looks nice tho, but I haven’t been inside yet.

2. A nice place to the west/central end of Hove, on the front, is the Princes Marina, on Kingsway Hove. Its part of the Best Western http://www.brighton.co.uk/hotels/princes/

3. St Catherines Lodge 44 (0)1273 778181 (caution – I think they house Hen parties here!)

Much as I would love to second Bojangles' recommendation to stay in Hove (great restaurants & pubs, and a bit quieter than Brighton), its hotels leave a lot to be desired.

I believe that St. Catherine's Lodge, where I used to put people up myself, closed as a hotel several years ago, and is now a hostel for the homeless.

Langfords: I used to live opposite the hotel, and also used to go to wine tasting events there until fairly recently. It's in a great area, but looking pretty tired now, and recent reviews are poor.

Courtlands is also well-located, but recent reviews of it are dire. The only good reviews are from 2003, so beware.

Excellent, looks good to me! I really don't know much about Brighton, so I wasn't sure if there were any particular areas that are more sedate than others. On another forum, somebody mentioned "raucous crowds" somewhere, which is fine with me, but I do plan on sleeping a *little* while I'm there! ;)

fair comment art-g!

I think there is at least one decent hotel/B&B in Hove, which i keep forgetting about, and thats the Claremont in Second Ave near the Tin Drum.

www.claremonthousehotel.co.uk/location.html

decent reviews on here as well.

Excellent, that one is good to know about, Bojangles. I was beginning to fear that in order to get a good hotel in Hove, I'd have to open one myself! :-)

Wavedout, if you do book into Claremont House, there are lots of good restaurants and cafés in the area, as well as pubs and coffee places. It's a great street to be on, with the Promenade just down the street for seafront walks.
