MH review: The Old Ship Hotel Brighton
What is it?
Your very own room with a view of the English Channel. Situated on Brighton’s famous seafront, quite literally a stone’s throw from the beach (where your stone will get quickly lost; there’s no sand here), this historic four-star Old Ship is also just a few minutes walk from the Palace Pier and the characterful shops of the North (Boho chic) and South (designer and antiques) Laines. At night you’re guaranteed to find a club to your taste – Brighton has the best on the south coast – and under the arches on the beachfront just across from the Ship, is one of the very best: Digital(yourfutureisdigital.com). Famous in the '90s as The Zap, it’s played host to everyone form Carl Cox to Judge Jules, Paul Oakenfold and Pete Tong.
The Old Ship is a jumbly maze with plenty of character – no identikit Travelodge décor here. We stayed in one of the blue superior double rooms, which have recently been refurbished to a high standard, while still managing to retain an old-school Georgian town-house feel.
Bag one of the overnight deals that includes dinner in the restaurant and your stay will be exceptional value for money. Your package includes three courses at the Steak On Sea restaurant, which does excellent quality modern European fare, made with locally sourced ingredients (some of the fish pulled straight from the sea opposite). A similar dinner for two anywhere nearby will set you back at least £40.
You’ll struggle to find a better value seafront hotel in Brighton and, accordingly, the clientele is pretty varied. Young couples on a 'dirty weekend'; families here to enjoy the beach and pier; pensioners taking the sea air. The variety of folk in the lobby reflects the diversity of the city itself.
Dinner, bed and breakfast stays are available at the Old Ship Inn in Brighton starting at £135 per room per night, based on two people sharing.
