Located in southwest England, in the district of Brighton and Hove, Brighton is a favorite beach town for residents and tourists alike. The city’s hotels quickly fill during national holidays, particularly when the weather is warm. By planning ahead or visiting during the off-season you can easily book a Brighton hotel just steps from sea.

The Kings Hotel

Once three private residences from Regency times, the owners of the Kings Hotel purchased the properties and converted them into a lodging facility on the sea. This three-star hotel is located in the heart of Brighton’s city center, opposite a children’s playground that has swings, sandboxes and wading pools. The en-suite rooms at the Kings Hotel exude mixed traditional and modern interior design for a chic look, and many have ocean views. Offering only basic amenities, the King Hotel can provide its guests with flowers, champagne, wine, dinner, mineral water, corporate cash and a sack breakfast for an additional charge.

Sea Spray

Only a couple of yards from the beach, the Sea Spray hotel is located only minutes away from Brighton Pier. This four-star hotel offers themed rooms with sea views that include a New York-themed penthouse suite, Japanese-inspired double room and an opulence-themed superior suite, among others. To help make your stay at the Sea Spray as enjoyable as possible, the hotel offer packages for couples, booking services and room service.
