ESTABLISHED 1883!

by written on June 20, 2008

Like it's rival The Grand, the Metropole Hotel has shared the status of top Brighton hotel for many years now. But as with many large concerns it has had to turn increasingly to weddings, functions and the conference trade to keep things ticking over. As a result some people say that 'fading glory' is perhaps a more appropriate description of it's status than the old soubriquet of 'luxurious'. There was a time - when both hotels were not part of large chain groups - when you would feel slightly uneasy walking into either establishment for fear of being sneered at... but those days have long since passed. AS with all these older hotels there are plenty of impressive public rooms and a myriad of accommodation choices to choose from. As ever, one gets what one pays for...

You can dine at the hotel's Windsor Restaurant or enjoy lighter meals or sandwiches at their Metropole Lounge Gar or Bar 106. There is a pool spa and sauna within the hotel's health club and a number of treatments are on offer. Most notable is the 'eyelash tint'. I assume that is the whole eyelid group rather than a single eyelash! Anyway, as of June 2008, the tint can be had for £12 - and for £8 more they'll throw in your eyebrows!

Unique Quality: Splendid sea view - which you will probably pay extra for! Do check!!

Directions: From London and the M25, take the M23 to Brighton and then the A259 Seafront Road.
Sat Nav Coordinates: Latitude: 50.8215. Longitude: -0.1473 will lead you almost on top of it! Well, within clear view anyway...

The Hilton

by written on December 26, 2007

This is the Hilton Brighton Metropole, a very nice building for this hotel just by the sea. I often go to Hilton when possible, but not this time. However, the Hilton offers here a real sauna for those who miss it when away from home.

Our room wasn't huge like the holiday inn but it was very nice.
The only problem we encountered was in the bar, they had table service but I stood at the bar a Munchkin who was far to ugly for the lollypop guild snapped sit down I will serve you at your table, I don't know if the jam jar glasses or the pontoon eyes (one twists one sticks) that stopped him from seeing us but we waited and nobody came untill I kicked off.
The service was ***!

Unique Quality: The Grand staircase is beautiful.

Directions: On the sea front close to the west pier

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 5, 2005

A hotel from days gone by this one, excellent location right on the beech. Grand Lobby welcomes you in and the place has been modernised in a sympathetic way so as not to lose all of its character.

For a sea facing room you have to pay a premium so we did not bother, at the time of our visit the frontage of the hotel was partially scaffold covered anyway.

Our room was huge and contained the largest bed I have seen in a Hilton, it was mammoth. We had breakfast included in our stay and took it in the grand dining room, i am glad to report that the chef made excellent waffles which were promptly devoured by me!!

Unique Quality: In the basement there is a Health Club with a spa pool, its pretty small but nice all the same.

The location of the hotel is very good, just a few mins walk to the main shop,bar,resturant area.

The hotel was built in the by-gone days and many pictures depicting this time (turn of the 19th/20th centuries) are dotted around the corridors.

Directions: Kings Road runs right along the sea front, the Hilton Metropole is located at the derelict West Pier end.
