Drakes, Brighton, East Sussex
A beautiful Georgian hotel with warm Art Deco-influenced interiors, respecting the age of the property whilst housing mod cons. Ideally located for a romantic seaside getaway within walking distance to restaurants, quirky bars and boutique shops in The Lanes. Sadly only breakfast is offered, but with new restaurants popping up regularly, you're sure to find somewhere with its finger on the culinary pulse to delight you nearby. Vegetarians and vegans have plenty to choose from, as do seafood lovers; there are many irresistible spots specialising in oysters, lobsters and more. It's a shame we couldn't take our pooch as it's a non-dog friendly establishment, otherwise, it's a great choice for a weekend away in one of England's favourite seaside destinations.
