About the The Old Ship Hotel, Brighton


stag rating




Self catering


If you want to push the boat out on your stag do, choose the Old Ship! This elegant four-star hotel dates back to the 17th century and commands a prime spot overlooking Brighton’s liveliest stretch of beach. In the season, you can dine or drink alfresco on the terrace overlooking the sea and the prom. Or plot up in the hotel’s 400-year-old cellars, for an atmospheric drinking session, before you retire upstairs to your luxurious room. The tasteful décor is combined with high levels of comfort to make your stay a bit special.

Of course, you’ll be in the perfect spot for all of Brighton’s attractions, just a few minutes' walk to the rides on the pier and right in the Lanes with its great mix of bars and restaurants. The hotel’s own restaurant, Steak on Sea offers an exciting fusion of local fare and continental dishes, so you might find you want to dine in. 

The 154 rooms here all come with comfortable beds, en-suite bathrooms, satellite TV, and WiFi. You can make yourselves tea and coffee, or call room service for other refreshments. If you need a hairdryer or iron, or want to lock up valuables, ask the helpful staff at reception, which is open 24 hours. You can work out in the hotel gym, and enjoy fine dining in the restaurant. The breakfast menu offers everything from cereal and fruit to a Full English and Eggs Benedict, and is served until 11am at the weekend and 10am on weekdays. There is also a hotel car park onsite (charges apply).
