The Brighton seafront may present some serious competition, but The DoubleTree by Hilton Brighton Metropole has it all, and some! Opposite the promenade and in close proximity to the pier and the city’s key hotspots – yes, that means The Lanes too. Selected rooms have sea views but every one is elegant and comfortable – what more could you want?
The hotel is housed in a classical Victorian building, but with all the modern touches – a nice play on past and present with its recent and rather impressive makeover with period features taking pride of place.
There’s not one, not two but wait for it, four restaurants each with their own style and menu. Traditionalists will be at home at 1890 At The Met – breakfast and Sunday Lunch is served in this grand dining room and on selected evenings, Le Petit Chef resides here which is an interactive experience for all the family. While at the Salt Room it should come as no surprise that fish features heavily but there are options for everyone and every tastebud.
The Metropole Bar offers more brasserie style, casual dining where afternoon tea is served and a terrace where you can watch sunset. It’s a popular venue on weekends with a sophisticated buzz to things and a great cocktail menu.
Given it’s a city hotel, you wouldn’t expect there to be a spa – but there is! There’s a pool, whirlpool, sauna and steam room as well as a fitness suite and treatment rooms. After all, what is a city break without a little pamper?
