A niche hotel in a niche part of BrightonClose to the seafront and only a 10-minute walk from the centre of Brighton, this is a gem of a place to stay. The staff could not do more - from taking our cases from the car to tailor-making our breakfasts. Thoroughly recommended

Beautiful setting.Had a bit of difficulty finding this place but it was well worth it when we did. (Our sat.nav. had us come in the wrong end of the lane.) Lovely breakfast and we could have had dinner there too which is a plus. Room very comfortable with nice extra touches.

Comfortable B&B close to beachEasy access to St Leonards Warrior Square train station and buses, right beside the beach. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room billed as luxury double but would be very cramped for two. Although the bed was very comfortable, there were no armchairs, just stools. Tasteful décor and well equipped. ...

Great hotel in Hove. Nice walk to Brighton PierThis is a great hotel, which I think is technically in Hove, but is a short and nice walk down to Brighton Pier. It's in a convenient location. Has parking nearby. The hotel staff are great, and it's got a good breakfast as well. Recommend

Pocket Guide: 5 stars Hotels in East Sussex

Spanning breath taking natural landscapes, historical attractions and lively seaside resorts, East Sussex really does have it all. No matter how precise your needs, the southern county represents the perfect opportunity to take a tailor-made holiday in the United Kingdom. Backing up its wealth of attractions, East Sussex is home to an impressive array of luxurious five star hotels and guesthouses designed to suit all tastes.

Luxury Seaside Hotels

One of the foremost charms of East Sussex is its long stretch of coastline. From the bright lights of Brighton to the untouched chalky cliffs of Seven Sisters, the East Sussex coastline is one of the most diverse in the country. One thing which all the county's coastal resorts have in common is the high standard of accommodation on offer.

Hastings, in the east of the county, offers visitors the opportunity to tap into the coast's rich Victorian heritage. The laid-back town is packed with cultural and historical gems. Hastings House is a five star boutique hotel and bed and breakfast. The stunning period building offers superior levels of comfort and service.

Tranquil Spa Retreats

Many holidaymakers looking to book into five star hotels come in search of total relaxation. The East Sussex countryside provides an ideal setting in which to kick back, book into some relaxing treatments and unwind.

One of the finest spa hotels in East Sussex lies in the seaside town of Eastbourne. From the opulent exterior, it's immediately clear that The Grand is something special, and the well-equipped spa and wellness centre makes sure of that. In addition to the fitness suite, guests have access to a wide range of pamper packages and relaxing spa treatments.

East Sussex's Rural Highlights

Known as '1066 country', the East Sussex countryside offers as much fascinating historical insight as it does startling natural beauty. As you'd expect, there are also plenty of exquisite five star hotels on hand to give your trip that touch of luxury.

One of the real rural highlights for history buffs is the small village of battle, so named as it was the site of the famous 1066 Battle of Hastings. Today, the sleepy and picturesque village sees a good deal more tourists than warriors. The Claverton Country House Hotel offers a place to stay near the village. Kept to a high standard, the hotel's pretty gardens are its stand-out feature.

The South Downs National Park attract walkers of all abilities. Devil's Dyke, a short drive north of Brighton, is a particularly unique spot which combines breath-taking natural beauty with views across nearby towns and villages.

Bohemian Brighton

As the county's most popular town, it's fitting that Brighton should house some five star hotels of its own.

Kemp Townhouse is a five star bed and breakfast, finished to an impressively high standard. In addition to an enviable central location, guests can enjoy free WiFi and assistance booking into the many local attractions.

The Claremont is located on the other side of town, in Hove. The period property houses some meeting rooms, making this five star hotel a favourite among travelling professionals.
