A seafront stay near Brighton's famous pier, with breakfast, and optional dinner with a bottle of wine and an option with afternoon tea

With a privileged and lively location on the pebble-fringed Brighton seafront, The Old Ship Hotel dates back to the 17th century and is one of the well-known old boys of Brighton. The decor is a suits-everyone blend of classic and contemporary, so you're sure to find a welcoming blend of modernity and tradition by the seaside.

At The Old Ship you'll find a restaurant serving up British fare, an al fresco terrace on the promenade (open during the warmer months), a light and bright bar area and a particularly popular afternoon tea. Though the real selling point here is the location - directly on the seafront and in the heart of the action, you're just steps from Brighton's iconic pier, close to some of the best bars and restaurants in town and a short walk from the hip Lanes area, with its multitude of vintage shops, boutiques and antiques centres.

Good to know

Please note that on-site parking is limited and chargeable.

Please be aware that dinner at the restaurant is not served on Saturdays throughout December.


Renowned for its vibrant nightlife, culture, shopping and of course, its pier, Brighton is also home to art galleries, museums and the Royal Pavilion: the astounding and uniquely-designed palace of Prince Regent. With the pebble beach just a few steps away and countless attractions catering for all age groups, Brighton is the perfect place for a short break away.
