GEORGE IV, BRIGHTON
In Brighton we stayed at the George IV Guest House in Regency Square - excellent if you're in that neck of the woods. Here's the blurb!There's the picture!
"George is a period townhouse offering fantastic sea views across one of Brighton's finest squares. Sue and Steve are a period twosome providing a friendly and informal atmosphere. All three of us are in central Brighton - right by the shops, the Lanes and the conference facilities and directly opposite the ever-interesting West Pier. There are dozens of restaurants within a minute's walk.
We have wonderful sea-view rooms, all beautifully decorated and extremely spacious, including a balcony room which takes everyone's breath away. The rooms at the back are really nice too. The AA made a point of complimenting our housekeeping on their last visit so the rooms are pretty spotless, as well as being en-suite. We're a smoke-free zone and there's an underground car park just across the road.
Brighton, of course, is one of England's most cosmopolitan, bohemian and vibrant towns and we wouldn't swap it for anywhere else.
Back to George. We took over the old fellow in March 2005 and have done him out in a manner of which, we hope, he would have approved. Not sure what he would have made of the jukebox in the lounge though. There are books, newspapers and board games for guests who prefer quieter entertainment. The rooms have TVs with DVD players - a selection of DVDs is available to borrow. Finally, there's internet access in the reception if you want to catch up on emails."
Clean, comfortable friendly though not particularly cheap! Nice though, especially as I was ill for most of our stay in UK..........
