The sun is shining, the whole weekend is ahead of you and you decide to take a trip to the East Sussex coast. How do you get there? Public transport? No way! It’s expensive and unreliable, and there’s never any room for your bucket and spade. So instead, pile the fishing net, the suncream and the rubber ring into the back of the car and hit the road.
In a rush? Need the TL;DR version?
The Best Hotels in Brighton & Hove With Parking
The thought of rail strikes needn’t cross your mind as you hurtle towards the coast at a safe and sensible speed, always making sure to follow the highway code. As you pull up to your accommodation for the weekend there will be no need to fret about pesky permits or parking attendants as here is a list of hotels in Brighton and Hove with parking included
A Room With A View
We begin the list with a hotel that very much does what it says on the tin. When pulling back the curtains everyone is hoping for the hotel room that boasts an incredible seaside vista, and ‘A Room With A View’ delivers just that.
Situated in Kemptown, the upscale bed and breakfast is a literal stone’s throw from the beach, and it takes a leisurely nine minutes to reach the famous Brighton Pier. The rooms are bright, contemporary and chic, containing all the mod cons expected of an establishment such as this, including a flat-screen TV and a coffee machine.
The sea views from the rooms truly are stunning and at an upgraded price, you can secure yourself a private balcony or terrace. So why not forgo the flat-screen television and enjoy your morning coffee gazing across the horizon instead?
The Grand Brighton
When it comes to fitting Brighton’s aesthetic there is none that fit the bill better than The Grand. With an opulent Victorian facade, the building stands proudly on the seafront mere moments from the hauntingly beautiful west pier.
More recently, the hotel has become eco-certified to move with Brighton and its community’s forward-thinking attitudes to the planet. Each room is ornately decorated with a fine eye for detail, staying true to its Victorian roots but keeping up with the needs of the modern 21st-century holiday-goer. Perhaps the Victorians would have slept better if they had Egyptian cotton sheets too.
Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner in the lavish restaurants at The Grand, with decor and service that offers a true touch of luxury and a weekend away you will never forget.
Situated in Brighton’s Marina the Malmaison offers respite from the hectic city centre and buzzing nightlife whilst still offering stunning sea views. The Malmaison allows you to take a deep breath and relax, just far enough away from it all but close enough that when you’re ready, you can hop into a cab and dive right back into it (if that’s your thing, of course).
The Malmaison really has it all; a multistory car park, Wi-Fi, laundry service as well 24/7 room service! In terms of value for money, the Malmaison is incredibly reasonable, with double rooms starting at around £100 and with use of the car park, wifi and breakfast included you can’t deny its affordability.
The Claremont is a quirky 5-star bed and breakfast located in Hove’s historical district. Each of the establishment’s 11 bedrooms boasts a totally different decor which adds to the guest house’s bohemian yet elegant feel. In just a one-minute walk, you can find yourself on Church Road where a plethora of top-class eateries present themselves to you. Enjoy fresh Mexican tacos and craft ales at Bison Beer, tuck into a traditional Neapolitan-style pizza at Fatto A Mano or if a full English breakfast with a pint of Carling is more your thing, then get yourself a table at The Blind Busker. All of which can be found less than 3 minutes walk from The Claremont, which makes it a perfect spot for any budding foodies out there.
For guests of The Claremont guest house off site parking is available at a discounted price of £7 per day.
The Old Ship Hotel
Slap bang in Brighton city centre sits The Old Ship Hotel, a historical Georgian building with 154 rooms. Previous guests have included an array of aristocracy, artists and musicians, it is even rumoured that Italian composer and violinist Niccolo Paganini once rested his head here. The Old Ship Hotel is perfect for those who want to dive head first into Brighton’s bustling retail and restaurant scene. Begin the day at the state-of-the-art gym before breakfast and a day shopping in Churchill Square. Upon your return, you can take full advantage of al-fresco dining, complete with sea views, before topping off the evening with a game of billiards. Of course, if you fancy something a little less high energy, a stay at The Old Ship Hotel comes complete with a concierge service and 24/7 room service, so you needn’t lift a finger. The premises are pet-friendly for those with a canine companion, and onsite parking is available for up to 50 cars.
Best Western Princes Marine Hotel
If you are looking for quality at an affordable price then look no further than Best Western Princes Marine Hotel. Perfectly situated on Hove seafront you can get stunning sea views for just a fraction of the price. The rooms are bright, clean and spacious, and this modest three-star hotel has everything you need for a comfortable stay, including breakfast, parking, room service and free wifi. Breakfast and parking are not included in the price of the room; there is a surcharge but it will certainly not break the bank, making this hotel a top tip for those looking to get away for the weekend whilst still looking after the pennies.
