About the The Old Ship Hotel, Brighton


hen rating




Self catering


The Old Ship is an elegant four-star hotel, dating back to the 17th century, and has a proud tradition of hosting VIPs on their luxury seaside breaks. It commands a prime location, overlooking Brighton’s key stretch of beach, with the pier and the prom on its doorstep. In summer, the alfresco terrace is a great spot to dine or drink as you watch the scene below. Or you can gather in the hotel’s 400-year-old cellars then retire upstairs to your tastefully decorated room.

Afternoon tea is done in style here, and the hotels’ own restaurant, Steak on Sea offers an exciting fusion of local fare and continental dishes. With so many beautiful spaces to hang out, The Old Ship Hotel is a winner for your extra-special hen do. It’s set just on the edge of the Lanes, where you can indulge in some retail therapy and so many bars, clubs and restaurants are in walking distance – yes, even in heels.

The 152 rooms here all come with comfortable beds, en-suite bathrooms, satellite TV, and WiFi. You can make yourselves tea and coffee, or call room service for other refreshments. If you need a hairdryer or iron, or want to lock up valuables, ask the helpful staff at reception, which is open 24 hours. You can work out in the hotel gym, and enjoy fine dining in the restaurant. The breakfast menu offers everything from cereal and fruit to a Full English and Eggs Benedict, and is served until 11am at the weekend and 10am on weekdays. There is also a hotel car park onsite (charges apply).
