Air BnB in Brighton
We’ve stayed in a lot of different places in Brighton over the years. It’s a really nice place for combining city and seaside. It’s all the traditional things I love about a British seaside town, but it’s also got some of the things I love about being somewhere like London. It’s the perfect combo.
Last time we went to Brighton, we decided to book an Air BnB. This was the first time I had booked through them so was a little apprehensive. I’d heard some great stories and some not so great stories. But it was only for a couple of nights, so I thought it would be a good test.
I found this gorgeous apartment right on Brighton’s seafront. It was part of a penthouse apartment and it had a gorgeous roof terrace, complete with a glass surround living room and a hot tub outside.
The sleeping space was on the floor below the terrace and consisted of a nice big bed, a small wardrobe, bedside tables and a dresser. There was a wet room off the main bedroom. This had a shower and a toilet and was very high quality. Although the sleeping space was quite compact, the roof terrace more than made up for it.
Up on the roof terrace, inside there is a living space with a sofa, fridge, TV and heaters. There’s also a telescope which highlights the amazing views. Outside there’s a hot tub and table and chairs. The views from the hot tub are amazing and you can see over the Brighton coastline, including the pier which lights up as it gets darker.
The apartment is ideally located off the main seafront road in Brighton, so it’s super-easy to get anywhere in Brighton from here.
One thing to note is that they don’t allow you to eat in the apartment. This wasn’t a problem for us, as one of the attractions to Brighton is the variety of restaurants.
We visited The Witchez one evening and also dined at The Breakfast Club during our stay. There also isn’t any parking, but we just paid to park on the street outside. It’s a little pricey, but you are paying for the convenience factor. Nowhere in Brighton is cheap for parking anyway.
I was sad not to meet the owners, as they sound lovely from the previous reviews I read. But we were greeted by their friend, Keeley who showed us up and around, and who also made a lunch recommendation. She was so warm and welcoming.
I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here in this Air BnB in Brighton again, it was such a lovely apartment, in a great location. With the amazing views from the roof terrace was such a nice treat. The price varies, but it usually is around £200 - £300 a night.
