Kick back al fresco under the vine-covered pergola in our central courtyard. Sink into a leather armchair in the bar or lounge, and choose from over 100 whiskies and rums or savour one of the delicious cocktails. Train your palate with expert guidance in our wine cellar with the in-house Sommelier. Tuck into simple, robust dishes prepared with fresh, local, seasonal ingredients in our trademark bistro. Select your favourite cigar from the humidor and enjoy a smoke under the stars. Or disappear to Cave du Vin, a snug hideaway for intimate private parties, or make merry in the striking 1920s-inspired Ruinart private dining room - or how about a spectacular wedding or civil ceremony in The Dome? Join the locals in the laid back ambience of Pub du Vin next door, before sweeping up the magnificently restored carved staircase to one of 49 distinctive bedrooms. You'll find super-soft Egyptian cotton linen, big fluffy towels, roll top baths and drenching monsoon showers. For an overnight treat, weekend getaway, meeting or just lunch or coffee, our Brighton hotel should be your first resort.
