... weather is like and if the sea was calm or rough. Last night here was a gale and I thought of those at sea. Even with the best stabilisers you get some sway. It all reminded me to get some Avomine! I don't get sea sick but also prevention is better than cure. A great deal of the fun of holidays is this time of anticipation. Looked up our booked exclusions on line and Komodo island is missing so I will have to give them a ring tomorrow. I have fired off an email as well. One of ...
... six cars! Car moved and went to fire up Monty - another campervan parks up in the space. Another negotiation!! Eventually Monty is able to get out and off to fill up with diesel.
Once David arrives home and gets scrubbed down, we set off to the New Forest to our planned stop at Sway. Fish and chips picked up in Brockenhurst on the way.
... George IV had it built when he was Prince Regent in the early 1800s. Lavish does not begin to describe the interior. It’s amazing! The design is Chinoiserie with plenty of dragons and snakes, vibrant colours, glass, copper, gold, and some absolutely stunning chandeliers. Opulent, to be sure. It was really worth a visit. (No photography allowed inside, so I’ve uploaded a tiny photo from the internet and a ...
It was xxxxxx cold this morning.
The temp dropped dramatically overnight.
I will be seeing Chris on wed to get the heating sorted. I must have missed some switch or something. It must be down to me not being able to use the control panel - there are so many symbols that it is mindblowing.
Breakfast and a slow journey home.
Some beautiful pictures of the morning frost.
And Monty is now back at the storage, ready for next weekend and the New Forest.
... I should write a few words about the placement, but I wasn't really there long enough to give it a fair assessment. This was another HelpExchange rather than a wwoof. (My previous HelpX was in Auchenblae.) The principle’s the same – work in return for food and

Historical Traveler Reviews New Steine Hotel Brighton
We loved it!
Every year, my partner and I organised a long week end trip to different part of the uk, to get away from london and get some time together without the kid. I therefore can say that we have experienced and compared many hotels in different part of the country. But this time, I feel I must take some time to mention New Steine Hotel in Brighton. Perfect location next to the sea, Great acommodation, Amazing food, and frankly outstanding service . Great value for money...I can not recommand it enough. For once , my partner and I might break our golden rule, and come back again to the same place!
How did we feel?
We spent 2 nights over a week end in June to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. Upon our arrival flowers and champagne were already on ice in the bedroom (my husband paid for them of course!). The delightful Stefan carried our luggage up to the room before we could grab them! The room had a balcony with a sea view (from an angle!)! I did mind the seagulls happiness during the night but I guess this is unavoidable being so closed to the sea front! Breakfast was served until 10 o'clock in the morning but we requested a room service as you can imagine, first wedding anniversary remember! We tried the French bistro restraurant on the next day and we were impressed by the dinner and friendly service. No doubt we will be back some days, this hotel treated us like if we were kings!
Friendly and welcoming
stayed at the new steine for 3 nights. Quite a nice little hotel, well located near the seafront. 10 minute walk to the Lanes, where some of the restaurants are located. Staff at the hotel very friendly and welcoming, told us to ask them if we needed any info about clubs/bars/restaurants/sights to see...Had to pay upfront, but not a prob, better to get it over with. Room small but nice, decorated in yellow with blinds and pictures hanging on walls, fairly plain, but comfortable. Slightly noisy at night, but most hotels seem to be situated near the front so probably same elsewhere (had same prob in genevieve hotel last year).
Hotel had small but nice breakfast room, pleased that pancakes were on the menu..mmm...Breakfast room became french bistro in evening, never went but looked lively - candles on tables, menu looked good.
Lounge in hotel looked exactly as it did on website.
Good service provided by staff - they called taxi for us before we left.
Would recommend if you're looking for a fairly cheap hotel for just a few nights - this is a simple, clean, friendly place where the staff will make you feel very welcome.
Cheap and Cheerful (with dirty net curtains!!!)
Been to worse i suppose! Owners / staff were lovely and the rooms were moderately clean, however considering we stayed in the luxury (??) twin i would have hated to have seen or stayed in the normal bedrooms.
The furniture was nice, but got bites of some sort from the carpet, could hardly see the sea through the dirty yellowish net curtains and the valances on the bed were absolutely filthy. On initial inspection the plastic marble effect bathroom didnt look to bad but if you looked below the sink unit and down the front of the loo, well i cant say, but trust me it definately wasnt clean. breakfast was ok, even though i was given the full english with bacon etc and im a vegetarian!!
If your desperate, dont want to be bothered by anyone , dont mind dirt and dust, and like to come and go as you please then stay here, otherwise id give this one a miss.
Checking in at the New Steine hotel was quite an experience. We were greeted with a welcoming smile arriving quite early in the morning 10 am from germany and were offered a breakfast straight away ( free of charge)which was I must say quite yummy: homemade french pancake and chocolate. They made sure our bedroom was made as soon as possible so did not have to wait too long. The bedroom was very stylish with all the facilities you would expect from a four star hotel. although it is a small private hotel.
During our stay harvey and stefan made sure we were well looked after.
Booking restaurant, a couple of plays and live music at the joogleberry.
We tried the french bistro once and sampled some escargots for the first time followed by shank of lamb and creme brulee all divine.
What else can I say apart of Well Done and we will defenitely be back in Brighton to spend yet another unforgetable week end.
My best friend and I decided to go to Brighton to celebrate my 29th birth year. We stayed in a twin ensuite with sea view and we loved everything about the place. It was home from home. The bathroom is nicely decorated and the room was warm and comfortable. The service was excellent, staff were friendly and catered to all our needs. The manager was also very friendly. Staying at this hotel was an added bonus to our trip. I look forward to staying at the New Stein in the near future. I would recommend this hotel to friends and family going to Brighton.
What a dump
Booked in to the New Steine hotel Saturday 22nd January. Only hotel I have ever checked into where they make you pay the bill upon check in. Found out why they are so keen to get your money when shown to our room. Was allocated room 1 - which must surely have been the worst room in the place. How exactly you can get a room which is painted sunshine yellow to look shabby I do not know but they managed it somehow. The room was shabby, dated and dull. Macerator toilet not fixed too well to the wall - it rattled alarmingly when sat upon. Wonder if that is why there was newish carpet in room and bathroom? Floor under carpet very uneven, wondered what that hides? Room 1 is directly next to the lounge (also shabby) and not far from the front door - so late afternoon all we could hear was noise from the lounge and people walking back and to from reception together with the contant ringing of the front doorbell. Still, that is partly understandable, it is a conversion property after all, and one does not expect people to creep about in the afternoon. But come dinner time it got worse. There is a bistro in the basement and all the cooking smells somehow come into the room, along with all the racket made by the diners. It was so bad that we did not bother to complain at reception - there was no-one there in the late evening anyway - we just gave it up as a bad job and left to go home at about 10.30pm. Cost was ''''''79 per room per night - a highly extortionate price for such poor accommodation. Would definitely not ever stay here again - well we didn't after all anyway.
I stayed at the New Steine Hotel last week and have to report that I enjoyed staying there. Very helpful, friendly staff. Pleasant room with a sea view. Tasty breakfast. Good location. Compared with prices of other hotels in Brighton, the New Steine is good VFM.
Not worth it
I would have to disagree with the previous review. I felt this small b&b was not worth the £79/night. I have to admit that I didn't give this place a second chance and that had we been given a different room things may have turned out better. If you do stay here and want to get a good nights sleep make sure you say you DO NOT want the room right next to reception. It is noisy (with the sounds of the doorbell ringing, phone ringing and people going up and down stairs to the bistro), the toilet rocks when you sit on it and the shower head flies off if you have the water on full. Also there was a private party on in the bistro so maybe bad timing, which we could have forgiven, but with the manager declaring that it was a bistro and this is what to expect (when my boyfriend got up at 1.20am to ask if they could keep the noise down), we were rather annoyed. So next morning we went around the corner to the New Madeira Hotel and for £100/night we got a fabulous room with sea views (admittedly no breakfast) - but no attitude!
Absolutely fantastic! The hotel is quite small from the outside and in a square jostling with other establishments yet there is a wonderful atmosphere from the first moment you set foot in the New Steine. We were greeted by our very helpful and charming host. Our room was a delight, admitedly the sea was only viewable if you looked out at a certain angle and squinted but nevertheless Brighton beach in November is hardly thrilling! The bathroom was most opulent, resplendent in faux marble and mirrors - the shower was amazing and worth getting out of bed for! The sitting room was beautiful and my husband and I enjoyed an afternoon playing the many board games available to guests. The restaurant was downstairs and despite having a scenic view of the pavement above a mural had been painted to liven up the view. The food was superb and definitely a little unusual, I could definitely sense the gallic influence. Our 'waitress', Sade, was a treasure and nothing was too much trouble, she even organised a heaving breakfast tray to be left at our room at some ungodly hour on our last day as we had a really early start. I enjoyed myself thoroughly and the owners are there when you need assistance but melt into the background to let you enjoy your stay perfectly. Parking was a bit of a nightmare but at least there was metered parking on the square so the car could be kept in view and the parking was free overnight. Highly recommended and I certainly hope to go back there! Thanks guys for a fantastic short break!
