Hotel Review – Malmaison Brighton
The Malmaison Brighton is decorated with a surreal flair. This is the downstairs entrance.
Pattern prints and chic furniture give this Hotel a very unique vibe.
The Hotel is situated on the Brighton Marina facing the ocean.
Our incredible Suite. A masterpiece of lighting and decor, see below the post for more pictures.
Boutique, Creative, Waterfront
The Malmaison Boutique Hotel chain is renowned for it’s luxurious yet unconventional approach to hospitality. Currently Malmaison operates 15 Locations throughout the United Kingdom, each with it’s own unique design and based in extraordinary locations. This is one hotel chain that is full of surprises and with very affordable room packages around 100-200 pound per night, it’s sure to satisfy.
Where do we start. This was a one of a kind experience.
Upon arrival we were presented with a choice between two brand new suites that had only opened 3 weeks prior. Surprisingly each of the suites had a distinct theme. One was based around nightlife, including a podium to dance in the living room, neon lights throughout and Pacha inspired artwork on the walls. The other suite, which was the one we chose, was themed after the iconic Ibiza Cafe Del Mar Beach Club, and was fittingly named the ‘DelMar’ Suite.
This room was nothing short of incredible. Spacious, modern, and very very creative. One of the standout features was definitely the lighting setup throughout the room. There is a remote control with various settings to choose from that would set the room alight in all colours of the rainbow. With blackout curtains so that even during the daytime you could experience the maximum effect of the lights, it was nothing short of a feast for the eyes. The bathroom was modern and colourful, with 2 shower heads for that couples shower experience, and colourful lighting to continue the theme of the suite.
Another notable feature was the ‘floating’ bed frame, with light emanating from below. There was also a sensor installed, so that if you stand up at night just the light below the bed would turn on to help you find your way to the bathroom.
The photos in this post are worth 1000 words, but trust us, it was a stay to remember.
We did not dine at the Hotel during out stay, as we had a dinner reservation with friends preplanned. However the restaurant looked tastefully decorated and the menu looked like it had something for everyone.
The Malmaison Brighton is a waterfront beauty, situated at Brighton Marina with expansive views of the ocean. Along the pier there are numerous restaurants, bars and take-away places, offering plenty of variety in terms of dining out. The in-house Brasserie offers delicious food, a variety of cocktails and a full bar to cater to your every drinking desire. There is also a beautiful and expansive deck, to lounge outdoors during the day and night. Unfortunately this hotel does not offer a Gym or Pool to my knowledge, however it makes up for that with the location and the decor.
Our experience with the staff was extremely pleasant. We actually got our booking date wrong and arrived a day early, but the concierge didn’t bat an eyelid and swiftly adjusted our booking so that it felt like there was no mistake at all. All round everyone we encountered at the hotel was friendly and professional.
The internet worked perfectly at lightning speeds. Netflix and chill? Not a problem.
We chose the ‘Del Mar’ Suite above for our stay. However the Hotel also had another themed Suite available, see below.
Brighton Malmaison is truly one of a kind, highly recommended for your next Brighton visit 🙂
