Our two-night stay at Liz and Dexter's The Art House was a delight! The house has got bags of character and is tastefully decorated throughout with a mixture of antique furnitures, refurbished by Dexter, and modern artworks - Liz is a very talented mosaic artist! We stayed in the Garden Room and had a very restful time there: comfortable, massive bed, soft and immaculate white linen and beautiful views over the lush garden and the mosaic studio. The room hasn't got ensuite, but the marble bathroom is just outside the door and has got both shower and tub, plus there's a cloakroom on the same floor - both of them very clean and beautifully decorated with Liz' mosaics. Dexter prepared us abundant breakfasts in the magnificent kitchen / diner and we had great early morning conversations.
All in all our stay was very relaxing, it felt like visiting very interesting friends at their gorgeous home, with tasty food and good tips for exploring Brighton and Hove. Definitely recommended!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- You will find The Art House Hove has an atmosphere of graciousness and calm. This refurbished Victorian villa combines tradition with modernity and style. Located 5 minutes from sea, it has easy access to central Brighton and Conference Centre. All rooms are individually styled, big windows and comfortable but not en-suite. The travertine-clad bathroom and separate second wc are pretty fabulous and the fresh natural breakfast is lovely too. ... more less
