... highlights is seeing the Komodo dragons. We were going on the train from Stonegate to Southampton but the train fare for two standard class is nearly £100 so thought about train from Brighton to Southampton and then thought there is a train from Polegate to Southampton and the FIRST class fare for two is £29 Just found out that the Brighton to Southampton bit takes 1hr 46min and stops at 38 stations. What an experience. The whole journey is still shorter than going via ...
... 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 was due to drive back to my placement (just outside Friston, near Eastbourne), I had a text to say that the host's 90 year old mother had fallen and had a brain haemmorhage and was not expected to live. Obviously, this meant the end of my placement, but all my stuff was still in a bedroom near Eastbourne, so I had to drive back down. Had that ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Square Brighton
With all the travelling around the UK we do it was such a pleasure to come across a hotel with such magical rooms from the mirrors in the bathroom which show such depth in the reflections to relaxing in the bath with superb views out to sea while sipping champagne.- what more can you wish for.
The ambience of the bar ensures a relaxing, friendly place to be with the staff pampering your every need - excellent cocktails!!
Will definitely be back and would like to thank Keith Allison and his staff for our unforgettable magical weekend.
I really can't fault this hotel, my sister & I just returned from a really nice weekend in Brighton and this hotel was the icing on the cake. The location was ideal for the beach front, shopping, bars & restaurants etc. If you are into design hotels I would recommend it, and whereas this kind of hotel can sometimes come with abit of a pretentious attitude this is certainly not the case at The Square, everyone was lovely (even the other guests), which I think makes you want to rave about a hotel even more than just being in pleasant surroundings.
Having just returned from Sqaure Brighton I feel it only fair to share the experience with others. Rarely do I get impressed with hotels these days however Keith Allison and Square have yet again bucked the trend.
From my initial enquiry to the helpfulness in guiding us in on the phone nothing was too much trouble. On arrival we were met by polite courteous staff and shown to what can only be described as an oasis of tranquility and chic unadulterated luxury.
Where else can you sip an excellent Gin and Tonic in your double ended roll top bath whilst looking out to sea. It's evident this hotel is attracting the right kind of super stylish guests and not a sniff of arrogance to be found. It's rare when you do travel so much that you want to return, however I personally can't wait for my next visit. Well done and keep up the good work. My very best wishes to you all for the future of Square.
OH my GOD
This hotel is a breath of fresh air - 5 star luxuary for less than £200. Amazing bathrooms, you and soak in the bath and look out to sea. Staff are friendly and sexy and they make the best martini in brighton.
Truely the best hotel.
Just returned from a weekend break with my boyfriend. Booked one of the King Rooms (no. 7) with a fantastic sea view - you can even look out to sea while having a bath thanks to the glass partitions between the bathroom and bedroom.
Great size room beautifully decorated and amazing bathroom with modern roll-top style bath.
Staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough for you. Lovely breakfast too with nice bread, muffins, bagels, fresh fruit salad, cereals, smoked salmon, meats and cheeses and for those of you who can handle alcohol early in the morning champagne. Also served at a decent time - from 9.30 so you can have a nice lie-in. And believe me you will want to stay in the comfy bed as long as possible.
There are a few things which I would point out. I believe most of these are being rectified and it wouldn't stop me from staying at this hotel again because I loved it. But though they were worth mentioning. There are no plug sockets near a mirror so it's quite difficult to blow-dry your hair and no shaver sockets in the bathroom. Also, there are no phones in the room. This didn't bother me at all because I wanted to get away from it all but some people may find it odd. It would have been good to have a little fridge in the room and there wasn't a massive amount of wardrobe space either but not a problem for a weekend break.
I loved the glass in between the bathroom and the bedroom but it would be nice if possible to have little blinds or something that you could pull down if you want. Or even if they could frost over. As much as I love my boyfriend I don't really want to watch him going to the loo. Although some people like that sort of thing so it's personal preference really.
I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who likes boutique style hotels where you are made to feel like one of the family rather than just a room number. If you stay there you won't regret it.
The best Hotel in Brighton
Having stayed at numerous boutique Hotels, I found Square Hotel to be the best so far!
My partner and I stayed there a couple of weekends ago after a recomendation from a friend.
The whole weekend was great from the moment we arrived to the 'late check out' on the sunday morning, we were well looked after by the staff, who were friendly and efficient at all times.
The decor and furnishings are modern and comfortable, the beds are amazing and the bath with the view of the sea just takes your breath away, we can't wait to go back!!
I stayed at the Square on my sister's recommendation. I had a king-size room with a sea-view. The hotel is full of elegance and style but the atmosphere felt as relaxed as being at home. Gorgeous bedrooms, fabulous bathrooms, impressive decor... what else can I say, a treasure hidden on the seafront at Brighton.
Best kept secret in Brighton - amazing
From the moment of arrival to the time of departure, my partner and I had the best time ever. The staff were so helpful and approachable. The room we stayed in was immaculate - absolutely stunning fixtures and fittings, almost everything looked custom made to a high finish. Unlike many other hotels we've stayed in in Brighton, Square seems to have a kind of unique 'solidness' to the rooms - the hotel was full when we stayed and we did not hear any of the other guests coming and going. Even the breakfasts are amazing - loads of fresh fruit and exotic breads, meat and cheese. The staff couldn't have been nicer - no cliqueyness or aloofness and not in the least bit imposing. Certainly the place to stay for a discreet, chillout in a very stylish and beautiful location (our room had a seaview!).
A cut above the rest
Having stayed in Brighton previously, this was a new and eye opening experience. From the moment of viewing the website (squarebrighton - check out the reverse penthouse), until we arrived I was full of anticipation and I was definitely not disappointed. After lugging all our bags from the car, I could not wait to chill out in our room before setting off for some retail therapy. Upon arrival, a member of Keith's team who was courteous and friendly showed us into the amazing lounge/bar for a quick drink. After checking us in and showing us to our room (he did offer to carry the bags but we seriously brought too much) I could not wait to get behind the door. Both my boyfriend and I were speechless for a good few seconds before running from the room to the bathroom in wonder. The design and layout of our room (king) was stylish, sexy and innovative. The glass wall between certain areas (shower and bath) of the bathroom and bedroom were imaginative and unique without impinging upon practicality. The positioning of the chaise lounge and the chairs served their purpose!
The interior of both our bathroom, room and the hotel was consistent and exuberated sex appeal and luxury.
The whole team including Keith were fabulous and very helpful in recommending a restaurant to us. This is definitely one place I would love to keep a secret yet I am dying to recommend it to friends and family.
We will certainly be returning in the New Year and when we do, we will take the reverse penthouse Keith!
