As a young couple on a first proper trip together, I was a little intimidated by staying in a well-rated boutique hotel in an area that I didn't know very well.
However, on arrival, I was made to feel very welcome by the extremely friendly and helpful staff! The room, Santana, was everything we could have asked for and more, very stylish, and fitted our every need. The i-pod speakers were a hit and used frequently; almost as much as the amazing walk-in shower in the bedroom! Comfortable and trendy bed, plenty of plug sockets for appliances, dressing-table style area suitable for getting ready, and television above the bed perfect for watching films in bed. When showing friends and family some photos of the room after our stay, the all commented on how impressed they were and how posh/stylish/great it looked.
Other than ice-skating at the Royal Pavilion, which I would highly recommend, we had nothing planned. But the staff at Una happily drew up a map for us, highlighting the best destinations and things to do, which was very helpful. Breakfast in bed was fabulous, arriving exactly when we asked and tasting delicious.
After checking out on our last day, the hotel allowed us to leave our luggage there throughout the day, ready to pick up in the evening when our train was leaving. We stayed for 2 nights/ 3 days, but it wish it could have been much longer.
Overall, an amazing stay at an excellent hotel. Brighton was wonderful despite the windy weather, and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a romantic stay. A great start to the new year!
Only one thing though; the bed was a bit too squeaky...
