What Our Guests Say
A selection of our favourite guest comments on TripAdvisor, Late Rooms, Booking.com and Eviivo…
“Fabulous venue for entertaining”
I hosted my 50th birthday party here. The food, service and atmosphere were brilliant. My guests all had a fantastic evening and all commented on what a find it was.
Thanks to the team at Blanch House.
“Second Visit, Sumptuous”
Our second visit to Blanch House in a year, courtesy of vouchers via my daughters at Christmas. Although just for the one night, this enabled us to splash out for the best room in the house, and it was like being King Louis XV for a night. Very tasteful and sumptuous decor, great bath and shower, and a massive, very comfortable bed. Located at the first floor above the street level, it nevertheless caught the dying sun over the roof opposite (mid-summer, so won’t always be the case) and equally felt very bright in the morning.
The drapes were heavy velvet, and excellent black-outs for a good nights sleep.
As per the last stay here, the staff are very professional, friendly and helpful, and do a tremendous job. Breakfast was top notch.
To cap it all, in a town renown for parking idiosyncrasies, we were so lucky to bag a space feet from the front step….vouchers are £10 for 24hrs, and available from reception.
Hope to be back in the near future.
“Perfect in every way”
Stayed here for a couple of nights as a surprise to my girlfriend. Managed to check in early and our room was ready. Delightfully friendly receptionist, asked to help with bags, etc
We had booked the Moroccan room, which lived up to the photos on the website. Bed was huge and comfortable, bathroom small but in no way cramped and excellent toiletries, shower and decor.
The room is beautifully appointed, quality furnishings, tea/ coffee & shortbread too! Room was quiet and even came with a Dyson fan which kept the room a comfortable temperature.
The hotel itself is close to Kemp Town and St James and within walking distance on Brighton’s attractions.
Everything was spotlessly clean and the staff, who are a real credit to the establishment could not do enough for you.
Breakfast was a complete delight. Freshly cooked, quality ingredients, served by staff who really seem invested in you having a wonderful time. Can recommend a nightcap with cocktails served in the bar, lovely way to end an evening
The whole place is incredibly relaxed, stylish and exceptional. 2 nights really wasn’t long enough, overall it was one of the best hotels we’ve stayed in.
Cannot recommend Blanch House highly enough and look forward to staying again soon.
“Excellent hotel in quiet location close to the beach”
We stayed in the Renaissance Room which was lovely and peaceful, very cosy and great value. Couldn’t fault this hotel on anything – the customer service was second to none and the varied hot and cold breakfast options provided the perfect start to the day. Great customer service too – the hotel got in touch quickly and offered to post on a phone charger that we left behind. Highly recommended!
“Wonderful Retreat in Brighton”
I read wonderful reviews about Blanch House on Tripadvisor and decided to book for my family of four’s visit to Brighton. I emailed and explained that I needed two rooms, one with twin beds for my teenage daughters. I received a prompt response from Blanch House confirming my booking and room requests.
We found the hotel easily using GPS and were able to pull up outside to unload our bags. We were a little earlier than usual check in but Kerry kindly allowed us to check in early as one of our rooms was ready. We received a parking voucher from the hotel and found convenient on-street parking very close to the hotel.
We were able to walk along the seafront to Brighton Pier and The Lanes within 10 minutes which was wonderful. The hotel also arranged taxis when we went out in the evening to save us moving our car.
Our rooms were beautifully appointed, each with a different theme. The home made cookies in the room were a lovely touch and the Aromatherapy bathroom products were fantastic. We had a beautiful freshly cooked English breakfast in the morning with tasty fresh coffee.
I would definitely return to Blanch House again and would highly recommend it to other Brighton visitors who want a private boutique hotel experience with friendly and attentive staff.
“They think of everything”
The perfect boutique hotel. A charming and helpful welcome, tasteful and stylish decor, enormous comfy bed with good linen, spotless bathroom, great breakfast choices and service. A real find – will definitely be returning.
Loved Blanch House, friendly and welcoming boutique accommodation. A great breakfast, with lots of hot options on the menu. The staff were very helpful with bookings and reservations. Well positioned for walking into the pier area, quaint Lanes shops, or lovely restaurants.
Really good hotel. Very tastefully decorated with outstanding attention to detail. Bed very comfortable and room very clean. The bathroom was small but nice, great smelling soap and shampoo. Good location near to beach and good restaurants. Staff all very friendly and helpful plus a great breakfast especially the sausages!
“Elegant yet charming boutique hotel”
We chose this hotel to recover from a flight from the Southern Hemisphere – so glad we did! A very elegant but at the same time charming hotel- staff were excellent- efficient and very engaging- very knowledgeable about the surrounding area to explore. Breakfast chef to be commended on quality & selection provided! We stayed in the Perrier Jouet room- would highly recommend!
“Is there anything more you can say about this hotel?”
I very much doubt what I write will sway anyone but yes it’s everything that’s been said and more, much more.
The place is clean, yes you expect them to be clean but this was spotless not just our room but the whole hotel we struggled to find any dust!
Front of house are excellent as everyone says but we would like to thank Housekeeping for the cleanest hotel we ever have stayed in.
Many thanks to Kerry what yourself and the whole of your Team do it works, but we are sure you won’t sit back on your laurels and are thinking of ways to improve.
“Blanch House Brilliance!”
We booked for four nights on a business trip to Brighton. We booked a superior room and we’re thrilled on arrival to be upgraded to the feature room Legacia. The room is stunning – packs a real visual punch – great big comfortable bed,stunning bathroom with claw foot bath (real, not plastic) and a myriad of original deco pieces of furniture including wardrobe and drinks/hospitality credenza lighting and a side view of the ocean. We fell in love with Legacia as well as the wonderful people there.
Thank you Andy for huffing our luggage up the stairs, Luke who sorted out our parking, Kerry and Josie and the lovely young man who organized breakfast for us each morning- all very, very customer focused. We felt well taken care of. Check in was professional and informative (Luke gave us a map and indicated on it where we’d most likely find parking, restaurants and all kinds of other interesting things).
Brighton is a hoot to visit, Blanch house gives you a most wonderful place from which to explore this lovely funky, all embracing city; in a way, Blanch House is a wonderfully stylish bricks and mortar homage to Brighton. Great WiFi and lots of power outlets for charging devices.
Parking is on street with prepaid permits. There are a lot of stairs and no elevator in Blanch House so if mobility is an issue you’ll have to be sure to ask for a room on the first floor – but book you must!
Visited here for a friends birthday meal, she had hired the private dining room for a group of us.
We pre-ordered our food from a set menu.
We met in the bar area for pre drinks- the area itself was decorated well and the staff were pleasant.
We were led through to the dining room- it was at the back of the house and again nicely decorated. The staff had worked well with my friend to ensure her needs/wants were met.
The food itself was lovely, portions were a good size.
I didn’t get to see any bedrooms but if what I saw is anything to go by then I would definitely stay here
“Beautiful Blanch House”
What an amazing hotel! We had a lovely stay in the Peonie room, it was fairly small but perfect for a short stay! There was a fan in the room too which was a welcome addition in the beautiful Brighton sunshine.
The team there are very friendly and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived especially one of the owners who gave us recommendations of places to visit. Would 100% go back.
“Fantastic Night Away”
Incredible value for money compared to the main chain hotels that you may stay in for a short trip to Brighton! The room was well decorated, clean and quiet.
We were greeted by the hotel manager on arrival and were looked after very well by him as well as given great advice on where to eat and what’s worth visiting in the area on our short stay.
All staff members were very welcoming and friendly.
Great hotel tucked away in side street but in easy reach of lanes etc. The hotel decor is tasteful and there were lovely fresh flowers, which smelt gorgeous.
The owners and team are extremely attentive and gave guidance as to where to visit.
Breakfast was tasty, good quality and hot, cooked to your preference
Overall great value, for a small friendly, boutique hotel
A great experience all around. Met the owner who was super friendly. Great room and bathroom. The breakfast was to die for. Full breakfast with lemon curd as a “jam” and they had a granola bar that made my taste buds sing. Yes, I like food and YES, they did it well. Thanks.
“Lovely Room, Excellent Staff”
Our first trip to Brighton and we were lucky enough to choose Blanch House. We had a room upgrade free of charge to a delightfully furnished ‘Art Deco’ one which made the stay even better. The staff unfailingly helpful and friendly.
We would definitely go back.
“Just like it says on the website”
My husband and I stayed at Blanch House for 4 nights. We were so pleased to see that it was exactly as the pictures on the website. We liked the themed rooms, we stayed in snowstorm, lovely room, clean, comfortable and relaxing. Really enjoyed breakfast. The Staff are very friendly and so helpful.
The location is very convenient for Brighton centre but far enough away from the noise and bustle.
“A real boutique hotel”
My husband and I visited for 2 nights to celebrate my birthday in Brighton. We have stayed at Blanch House a couple of times since 2002 and the style, quality and service has always been consistently high. The lounge has recently been refurbished and it a tranquil setting to have a cocktail after a busy day in the city. Breakfast was delightful; excellent quality produce with special touches with the homemade jam and lemon curd. The staff were very attentive and the owner made a point of meeting and welcoming all the guests.
We would definitely revisit Blanch House.
“Everything we were looking for”
Blanch House was first class – all the important things like a warm welcome, very friendly and helpful staff, excellent breakfast, comfortable – and quirky – room, comfortable bed, good quality bed linen and towels, luxury bathroom and endless hot water. What more can I say? Oh yes, delicious homemade biscuits in the bedroom and fresh flowers too. Thank you to Kerry and all the staff – we thoroughly enjoyed our four night stay and would recommend Blanch House to anyone looking for an individual and friendly place to stay in Brighton.
“Blanch House THE place to stay in Brighton”
We booked a couple of nights in Blanch House as part of a trip to Brighton and London, arriving on the train and walking to the hotel from the station. Our room was small but perfectly formed, very clean and comfortable. It did look out onto the Sidewinder bar but we didn’t have any problems with noise at all in the evening.
The breakfast was varied and of very good quality. Kerry and all of the team were very helpful and keen to make sure that everything was in order. We enjoyed Brighton Rocks round the corner for the beers and cocktails and wandering around the curio/junk shops north of the Lanes.
“Great hotel, well run and thoroughly deserving of its ratings”
Have just stayed for night and the Blanch can only by described as perfect in every way and truly deserves its classification as a great boutique hotel.
Excellent welcome on arrival, helpful staff and perfect room. Helped with luggage from car, sorted out parking which although not normally available outside hotel can easily be sorted within a few minutes walk.
The room was superbly well decorated and prepared. Coffee and tea making facilities and some lovely touches, including fresh home made biscuits. Large and very comfortable bed and very nice bathroom. Breakfast in the morning was again perfect with pleasant and very friendly staff.
Disappointment was that we were not staying longer, it would have been great to have had a few more days. Don’t be put off by the location, the Hotel rises well above what your first impression may be and when you get inside makes the outside irrelevant, it was a pleasure to visit.
“Weekend Break with my Sister”
If you go to Brighton, stay here once and you’ll never need to look for an alternative!
Could not fault a thing. Excellent service even before arrival, room was perfect with lovely toiletries, soft towels and robes included!
Breakfast was excellent with lots of choice and the service from all staff was outstanding. The location was perfect for a stroll into town – far enough away from the noise and close enough for an easy walk. Can’t wait to go back and only got home today!
Thank you to everyone who was there for making our weekend break just so lovely.
“Only stayed one night, we will be back for longer”
Lovely, lovely, lovely what more can I say. A wonderful little hotel immaculately run by a great team. Highly recommended for a break in Brighton. Located in Kemp Town so great access to the Laines and the cosmopolitan area that is Kemp Town.
My partner and I decided to visit Brighton for a romantic weekend, and the romantic package available from Blanch house was tailor made for that. The house is perfectly located in Kemp Town and right beside the beach. Our room (Peonie) is one of the smaller rooms but was nicely appointed….
The service we got from the employees was truly fantastic, and if definitely made the weekend much more enjoyable for us. All in all, it’s a great place to go if you’re a couple who wants to stay by the beach, and prefers a smaller, cosier hotel rather than one of the chain hotels.
Would definitely come again.
We were warmly greeted and assisted in finding a car parking spot nearby and then settled in by our very welcoming host, Kerry, including carrying heavy bags to our room.
The room was immaculately clean and well appointed while compact and well designed. The room tea and coffee facilities in the room included lovely home made shortbread and biscuits. A very nice gesture. Kerry guided us to an excellent seafood restaurant and the best way to walk and see the sights of Brighton.
We slept soundly in the comfortable bed and enjoyed a beautifully presented breakfast in the breakfast room the next morning – the choices were extensive and the staff were warm and friendly.
We would recommend this well located accommodation which was fresh and stylish to any traveller to Brighton.
“Blanch House – Exceptional”
This hotel is just to the East of and very near to the sea front. I received a very warm welcome and the check in process was very straight forward. The room was beautiful and very comfortable, with lovely towels and toiletries.
Breakfast was welcoming with quite a varied menu. The foods piping hot and fresh: very tasty. The decor was faultless.
I think they deserve more than a 3 star rating.
Excellent choice of hotel.
“Lovely Boutique Hotel”
We stayed here for the weekend over two nights. The staff could not have been more warm and welcoming and the place had a lovely intimate but relaxed feel without it feeling over crowded.
We stayed in the Galaxy room right at the top of the building which was lovely…
Breakfast was a little slow, but so long as you’re not in a rush and prefer your food cooked fresh and not laid out for hours buffet-style, then it’s fine and made to order. Was nice to take some time over breakfast to be honest as we’re normally always in a rush.
My favourite part of the hotel had to be the superbly comfortable and big bed with lovely duvet and pillows. Really relaxing and more comfortable that our own bed at home!
Thank you for your hospitality.
“Absolute Class and Luxury”
We had a last minute opportunity to enjoy a night without the kids and looked for a hotel in Brighton. Blanch House came up and immediately I knew this would be the winner.
We arrived to find a beautiful bar and reception area with very friendly, helpful staff. We were then shown to our room, the “Perrier-Jouet” room.
It was absolutely stunning. I’ve stayed in a lot of “5-star” hotels in London and throughout the world, but this room was the best I’ve ever stayed in. It had glorious furniture, the most amazing mirror I’ve ever seen, a luxurious super-king bed and the show-stopping crystal chandelier in the center of the room!
It also had a lovely bathroom with a drop side bath and lovely walk in shower.
We slept well and really enjoyed the room. The hotel is situated in Kemp Town in Brighton which is very central and convenient for shops, attractions and night life. The hotel can supply you with a parking permit for the local area for £10.
Breakfast was also up to the standard of the rest of the hotel. We had full English and every bit of it was stunning.
Highly recommended if you want a treat and enjoy a bit of lavishness!
“A very hospitable hotel”
We stayed in Blanch House for one night on the June 2nd , staying in the Harlequin Room . We were warmly greeted on our arrival and although our room was cosy it was very clean and the bed extremely comfortable – most importantly!
The information book was informative we were also given a map of Brighton – very thoughtful. This thoughtfulness was evident throughout our stay – good quality toiletries, biscuits , tea etc in the room. Breakfast was excellent – again good quality ingredients and Kelly the owner took time to speak to his customers and showed a keen interest in ensuring that we were made welcome and happy. We would certainly stay again and recommend to others.
“Fantastic Blanch House”
Having stayed away in many hotels, nearly 40 nights in the last 10 months, I have seen the good the bad and the ugly…Having read the many positive reviews, my expectations were high for Blanch House, I was not disappointed… A welcome email was received as well as a courtesy call on the day of my arrival, these were nice touches. I am a lover of the well proportioned town houses in Brighton and Blanch House is a great example, lots of character, nicely decorated and clean and tidy, The location is great, a very short walk to the seafront or a gentle 10 mins to central Brighton or 5 mins from the many great restaurants, bars and cafes of Kemptown. I also managed to park in the road a few metres from the hotel.
The bedroom (Alice this time) was nicely decorated and clean, the bed was comfortable and there are quality duvets, pillows and towels ( and nice biscuits).
The bar area/lounge is very welcoming, comfortable and has a relaxed atmosphere, there is a good choice of drinks available and the prices are fair, I had a great chat with Luke who seems to have a few responsibilities in the hotel, very nice guy, as is Kerry who is one of the owners. Breakfast was great (full English this time) and served in a very nice breakfast room, lots of choice, quality ingredients, very well cooked and hot, add a very nice young lady serving who was polite and attentive, what more do you need.
So a great experience, I will be back again soon and have already booked a couple of nights with my wife for next April for the Brighton Marathon.
Well done guys and thank you.
We only stayed for one night but we were extremely happy with every aspect of the accommodation from cleanliness of the hotel as a whole to the homemade biscuits in our room. We stayed in the snowstorm room, and loved the quirkiness of it. Parking wasn’t too difficult either which had been our only concern as it was a bank holiday.
Thank you to all the staff at Blanch House. We will be back.
“Superior accommodation, exceptional service”
Blanch House is exactly what a boutique hotel should be. Classy decor, very personal and genuine customer service and a great bar! We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay there last month. Fantastic location, just a minute’s walk from the sea front and lots of great nearby eateries to choose from.
We particularly appreciated the courtesy call from the hotel before we arrived and the friendly staff when we were there…
The bedroom was spotless and was charmingly designed, and the shower was great.
I won’t look elsewhere for somewhere to stay next time I’m in Brighton. Blanch House is my new favourite. (Just remember to allow sufficient time for a leisurely cooked breakfast if there’s somewhere you have to be…)
“Beautiful Blanch House”
We loved staying in Blanch House. We were warmly greeted on arrival and received friendly and helpful service from all the staff throughout our stay. We stayed in room Legacia, and once shown we didn’t want to leave it! Beautiful room with all the lovely extras, chandelier, stunning lamps and home made biscuits (they were delicious). The bathroom was stunning – roll top bath and a separate shower cubicle all tastefully decorated.
The hotel was very clean, quiet, had an extremely comfy bed and the breakfast was delicious. Highly recommended this little gem to everyone and we would love to stay there again.
“A truly boutique experience”
Kerry and the rest of the team were wonderful hosts and catered to our every need. We stayed in the Moroccan room which was extremely tasteful and everything had been carefully picked for the room. There was certainly enough space for us both and we loved the various lighting which added to it’s ambience.
I went for the Romantic Package and it is excellent value; the perfect way to treat a loved one! The flowers were lovely as promised and the Prosecco and cream tea were both delicious.They had a lovely lounge/front room and we sat by the window in the afternoon sun with our cream tea, playing chess for as long as we wanted!
There are lots of nice touches to this place, such as the home made biscuits in the room and home made lemon curd and jams at breakfast. Breakfast by the way was in keeping with the rest of the stay with a good selection of hot and continental choices at a high standard.
You couldn’t really fault Blanch House and we are thinking of coming back to Brighton just to experience the wonderful service again!
“A great stay”
Lovely hotel in a great location. Parking permits were very useful indeed. Lovely welcome from incredibly friendly staff, who couldn’t do enough to help throughout our stay. The breakfast was fantastic with great quality food.
Will definitely stay again.
“A truly lovely, intimate hotel”
Exemplary hospitality. Such a charming friendly welcome, and all the team could not have been more helpful with anything I needed. Beautiful manners go a long way!
My Moroccan room was lovely with nice design detail – particularly appreciated as had just returned from Marrakech.
Breakfast was delicious as was my Brighton Gin with tonic at the nice bar.
Definitely my place to stay in Brighton going forward.
We stayed at Blanch House over the weekend and loved it. Fantastic service from all staff and a lovely hotel.
It’s unusual to find a place where everyone, from reception to bar staff, the owner to waiting staff are consistently friendly and accommodating. We felt right at home!
“Brilliant Blanch House”
The reviews on TripAdvisor tell you everything you need to know about this gem of a hotel.
On arrival we received a warm welcome from Josie and were showed to our room – Harlequin, with it’s seductive black and gold décor.
We’d booked the Romantic Break Package which meant along with the lovely room we enjoyed a traditional cream tea, a bottle of Prosecco, received a bouquet of flowers and had full breakfast the next day – all for £149 !
We enjoyed the cream tea in the stylish bar and returned there after a night out in Brighton. Looking after us in the evening was Andy, another real credit to the Blanch House team.
After a good sleep in the very comfortable bed we had breakfast. A superb full English made to order (other options included Smoked Salmon and Scrambled eggs plus cereal and fruit). Our waitress was excellent…
With parking being quick expensive in Brighton we were pleased to be able to acquire a 24 hour permit from the hotel for £10. The location is a mere 10 – 15 minutes from the main centre, so close enough to walk to and far enough away to avoid the noise of a very vibrant town.
I cannot speak highly enough of the attitude of the staff at Blanch House. You are really made to feel like a valued customer, something that is becoming a rare commodity these days.
I look forward to my next stay.
“Luxury, boutique, friendly – great cocktails!”
There are so many positives about this hotel.
We were looking for somewhere to stay to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary and came across Blanch House on Trip Advisor. It’s as good as the reviews. it’s comfortable luxury with attention to detail. We loved our room – we stayed in Legacia which is decorated in art deco style. The interiors are decorative as well as practical. Wonderful bathroom toiletries and bath robes! The bed was extremely comfortable!
Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, from recommendations to anything needed in the room. The cocktails we had were great and food is good too.
We will definitely be recommending to people, and would love to return. Thank you for a great stay.
“Fantastic Weekend Break”
We spent the weekend at this beautiful hotel, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Simply cannot fault the staff, service or venue. From the lovely receptionist who went out of her way to highlight on a map all the best places to eat, to being warmly welcomed in the morning by one of the owners, who served us our breakfast. Outstanding service and devotion to their guests.
Our room was “Peonie,” which was beautifully decorated, lovely finishing touches and most importantly, very clean and well presented. Also, as a firm marker of a hotel’s quality, breakfast on both mornings was perfect.
“The original and the best”
A stunning boutique hotel within walking distance of all that Brighton has to offer. First impressions of this wonderful hotel are the warmth, high level of customer service and charm offered by Kerry and his team. From the minute you arrive with your bags and are welcomed you feel spoiled and really treated like valued customers. The hotel overall has tasteful and excellent quality decor. We stayed in the Perrier Jouet room, spacious and again, brilliantly decorated to a classic theme and a simply fantastically comfy bed.
The little touches make all the difference here, some design and some from Kerry and the team. Breakfast was stellar, hot or cold or both, highly recommend either the scrambled egg with salmon or the full English!
We look forward to another stay soon-Thanks to Kerry and the team!
“Lovely stay at Blanch House”
Had a to leave a little review to say thanks all at Blanch House , a lovely boutique hotel next to the beach in Brighton.
Could not have had better service and nothing is to much for them. Will be back in the future. If only all hotels could provide such warmth and comfort as all at Blanch House.
Spent the most wonderful two nights at this lovely boutique hotel. Each room has its own unique character; we stayed in Alice which was small but very comfortable.
The welcome we received from the staff was warm and friendly but never over-familiar. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they delighted in doing everything to make our stay memorable.
Breakfast is a treat not to be missed; no greasy fried eggs here.
Really looking forward to our next visit to Blanch House and thank you Kerry and all the team.
“10 stars! Absolutely fabulous!”
We love this hotel! My husband and I stayed at Blanch House to celebrate our 10th anniversary in April. The owners are lovely…everything is first class but very relaxed and friendly. Beautiful interior design and art work. Super comfortable bed, fluffy white towels, amazing cocktails and a delicious breakfast!
Will definitely return!
Warm welcome and excellent accommodation. Boutique hotel with individual decorated themed rooms. Set not far from the seafront and restaurants.
If you are looking for a place to stay in Brighton, I highly recommend this hotel.
“Brilliant! Perfect for Group Private Dining”
We needed a room for about 20 people to eat and have fun. The room was perfect and the food was fantastic. The staff were great too.
If you need somewhere for private dining as a group in Brighton then go here! It’s not often you can find somewhere like this that does such good food.
“Perfect for a Romantic Getaway”
Stayed for a quick overnight stay on our wedding anniversary. Such a shame it was only for one night! We were looked after so well by Kerry and his team. Extremely friendly and accommodating staff. Lots of good local recommendations for restaurants and things to do. They Seemed genuinely interested to find out what we wanted and make our stay as comfortable as possible. Flexible over arrival and departure times. So lovely to stay at an independent boutique hotel of such high standards. If you want something special – stay here!
Looking forward to our next stay.
“Outstanding Private Dining Experience”
I organised a team offsite in Brighton and was looking for a private dining experience for myself and 20 colleagues. From start to finish this was truly excellent! Kerry was so wonderful and accommodating, the service and staff were fantastic and the food was absolutely delicious! What an amazing place I would highly recommend it! Everyone had a great night.
Thanks Kerry and your team!
“Perfect Hotel for a Romantic Getaway”
Blanch House is in an excellent location just a few steps from the seafront and surrounded by a selection of bars, cafes and restaurants. The hotel itself is very pretty, big enough that you see other guests but small enough to feel personal.
The owner Kerry and all his staff were incredibly welcoming. We very quickly felt at home and didn’t want to leave. Breakfast was a real treat, great quality food and a nice relaxed atmosphere where you were free to stay as long as you wanted.
Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a base when travelling to Brighton. We loved it.
“Wonderful Stay at Blanch House”
I am writing this review on behalf of myself and my parents.
I wanted to buy them a treat for Christmas and therefore, based on Trip Advisor reviews, I bought a gift voucher for Blanch House. I was not disappointed.
I had such wonderful service from the lovely lady on the end of the phone when buying the voucher. The same wonderful service that my parents received during their stay last week. Every member of staff was friendly and helpful (and the breakfast was lovely). My parents loved their stay at Blanch House and would love to go back at some point.
Thank you for making their stay so special.
We stayed here two weeks ago and had an amazing time! Josie was brilliant and very welcoming and also makes great cocktails! Luckily we managed to get a parking space straight out of the front of the hotel and had brought a parking permit from the hotel before which was very handy. We stayed in the ‘poppy’ room which was very nice and cosy! The Prosecco and chocolates in the room were very enjoyable! We were very surprised to find out breakfast was included and it was lovely!
We will definitely return!
Well done Kerry and Team
“Welcoming Brighton Hotel”
A lovely experience from Kerry and his dedicated team, could not fault the hospitality of all the staff at Blanch House.
Kerry made us both feel relaxed and very welcome, he was a lovely guy and very accommodating, nothing was to much trouble and he even showed us to our room and little things like that make all the difference.
The weather was rubbish but Kerry and his Team at Blanch House brightened the weekend right up.
We don’t usually drink cocktails but we thought why not, we sat in the lounge and ordered a couple of Cocktails but it was so nice and relaxing and friendly we ordered a few more, it would be so easy to get carried away with them, good job the wife had some will power for me :) after couple of Cocktails the beautifully comfortable bed was very welcome, oh breakfast great too.
Location was good for everything too, next trip to Brighton we will book Blanch House.
Thank you for a very pleasurable experience.
“A wonderful welcoming stay”
We had such a lovely stay at Blanch house. Everyone was so welcoming and kind and the room was comfortable. The breakfast (in particular the home made jam, marmalade and lemon curd for breakfast) was DELICIOUS!
We’ll be back.
“Perfect Getaway Retreat Close to the Beach”
We stayed at this lovely hotel for one night a few weeks ago. The staff were really welcoming and friendly. Although we had arrived a bit early, we were allowed straight up to our room – Legacia. It was beautifully decorated and laid out, with roll top bath and lots of space.
There has obviously been a lot of thought and attention to detail gone into each room, and we delighted by the quality of ours.
Breakfast was very good and filling and the breakfast room charming. Again the staff were attentive and friendly.
We really could not find fault with this hotel. Will definitely recommend to our friends and family, and will be coming back on our next trip to Brighton.
We came to Brighton for a couple of nights and chose Blanch house due to being number 1 on TripAdvisor, we were not disappointed.
Before we had left home we had a call from the hotel to ask if we had any special requirements and saying they were looking forward to welcoming us! When we got to the hotel we were greeted by Kerry, one of the owners who is such a lovely gentleman, he took our case to our room whilst we parked up properly.
Our room was Sakura, beautifully decorated, lovely bathroom with bath and shower, ideal for a short break.
Nothing was too much trouble for any of the lovely staff. In the morning there was a choice of breakfasts all cooked to order. Fabulous cocktail bar and wonderful Champagne.
A wonderful find and would definitely return here, no big chain hotels for us.
Thank you Kerry and your wonderful staff.
“Amazing wedding venue at a beautiful boutique hotel”
My husband and I got married at Blanch House at the end of August. We had the hotel exclusively for the Friday and Saturday night and we cannot fault the hotel. Kerry and his team were absolutely amazing. Over the whole weekend they were brilliant in accommodating everyone’s needs and any specific requests, nothing was too much trouble for them. The hotel itself is beautiful and all of the rooms are beautifully decorated and unique, especially the Perrier-Jouet suite which we stayed on our wedding night.
The hotels location just being up from the seafront which was perfect for our wedding pictures.
The food served on the day from the canapés to the wedding breakfast and cheese boards were absolutely delicious and all our guests commented on how exceptional they thought it was. Breakfast went down particularly well with all our guests that were staying.
From the first meeting with Kerry, we knew Blanch House was the place for us to get married. Kerry’s organisation and planning skills, along with ensuring our own personal touch was included made the whole planning process very easy. He was always on hand for any questions we had whilst organising our day. His involvement beforehand and support on the day enabled us to have the wedding day we wanted and everyone commented on what a lovely place Blanch House was and the service provided.
We had a wonderful stay in the Galaxy Suite. It’s the top-most room, feels a bit more removed from the rest of the place, very cozy, huge bathroom, great for a romantic getaway.
The staff were really helpful and knowledgeable. I’m allergic to down so they replaced all of the pillows with synthetic. Breakfast was delicious. I wish we’d stayed longer!
From the moment we arrived the owner, Kerry, couldn’t do enough for us, even playing the band we had been to see when we came back and had a night cap in the bar.
The rooms are beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good and all staff were very accommodating.
We will definitely stay again.
“A Hidden Gem of Civility”
Having heard great reviews of the cocktails available at the hotel bar my partner and I decided to take a chance and check it out despite not being guests.
So, ringing the bell (and please bear in mind we aren’t staying at this boutique hotel we’re just here for the champers and cocktails) we were greeted and, once we’d explained why we were here we were happily let into to the lounge to relax and unwind.
Amazing staff, cocktails and champagne yet at the same time civil and just down right accommodating. As they’ve done that for two people who have come for drinks we can only wonder how they treat guest staying and are looking for an excuse to actually stay here and enjoy the hotel properly.
My wife and I have just got home after a very nice two night stay at Blanch House. There isn’t a thing we could fault them on. The room was spotless and very comfy, the breakfast was lovely with loads of choice, Kerry and the staff are welcoming and helpful and can’t do enough for you. We will certainly be returning asap.
“We will be back!”
Blanch House was the perfect base for our long weekend. Good location, very comfortable room, good bar, hotel proprietors and staff all welcoming, friendly and helpful and wonderful breakfasts.
It will be our first choice for future visits to Brighton!
“Excellent Customer Service”
What a fantastic stay at Blanch House. The room (Sakura) was comfortable, clean and luxurious and Kerry (one of the owners) was a great host. There was a good selection of dishes at breakfast and the food was delicious. You can even have it for room service at no extra charge if you wish! All of the staff were knowledgeable about the area and were able to make excellent recommendations and there were lots of extra little touches to make Blanch House special.
Can’t recommend it enough and would return here without question. Excellent value for money.
My girlfriend and I stayed in the Harlequin room whilst in Brighton. On arrival the welcome was warm and professional, the room was “immaculate”, this coming from my ocd-clean girlfriend! The room was stylish and ticked all the boxes, much more character than a premier inn or standard hotel. All staff were very friendly and helpful and keen to give advice on the city and places to go.
Breakfast was amazing, great quality food and cooked to a very high standard!
Would definitely recommend this place to anyone planning a trip to Brighton
“Short Break to Blanch House”
We have just returned from a short break at the Blanch House Hotel and loved it. We stayed in the Moroccan room which was tastefully decorated and nice and quiet. The hotel is beautifully decorated and has a lovely bar area.
Breakfasts were great and the staff were accommodating in providing a vegan breakfast.
It’s location is good in the cosmopolitan Kemp Town area with some nice pubs nearby and it’s only a short stroll on the seafront into the town centre.
I will definitely return to this lovely establishment.
“Lovely Easter Weekend Stay”
We enjoyed a lovely 2 night stay at Blanch House. It is a stylish, beautifully clean boutique hotel in Kemp Town and tremendous value compared with places like Hotel du Vin. What we liked above all else was the cheerful, friendly and professional service. Fabulous breakfast too. We stayed in Galaxy right at the top of the hotel – 57 steps (we counted them) – but a beautifully appointed room.
Can’t imagine there is a better place to stay in Brighton.
Booked the ‘romantic package offer’ which was lovely. After getting very stressed out attempting to park we pulled up outside Blanch House to pick up the permit and get advice on where to park. The staff were amazing and used a map to clearly show us the best place to park.
A lovely hotel made outstanding due to those that work there.
“Very nice boutique hotel in Brighton”
Having never visited Brighton before, I was a bit in the dark when I booked Blanch House. However, I needn’t have worried, from our phone call before we arrived to collecting our suitcases on departure, all the people we encountered were exceptional.
The room, Alice, was bright and airy and fitted our needs perfectly. The service in the bar was excellent and the breakfast on both mornings were perfection and cooked while we had toast and drinks – nothing was too much trouble.
The staff were all very friendly and chatted about what we needed to know, which was excellent. Will definitely book again when we return to Brighton.
We have stayed in the Metropole and the Grand hotels in Brighton previously. This was a much friendlier and cosier place to stay. Well looked after and good location. No noise disturbance.. Even the seagulls were relatively quiet! Breakfast was delicious and cooked fresh to order.
Charming, friendly and clean. The price is almost unbelievable for the quality. The breakfast was remarkable . we both had a full English and it was cooked to perfection. The owner was kind and offered many suggestions for dinner, we took him up on one of the options and did not regret it. Close to the attractions near the sea, gorgeous view. Despite it being chilly outside the room maintained a perfect temperature.
Searching for a venue for our daughter’s christening, we stumbled upon Blanch House and the owner Kerry, and how lucky were we. From the first time we rang to the moment our party of 70 left late in the evening, the staff and venue was outstanding.
From the outset Kerry was only to willing to help us create what we had in our minds, happy to negotiate and extremely flexible, from arranging to turn the office into a baby changing room to changing the layout of the bar area to suit our number of guests, he was diligent and patient as our plans altered.
The first time we went to meet him the hotel was undertaking a refurbishment, finished brilliantly the venue catered easily for our 70 guests, offering in effect two rooms which allowed guests to move and mingle easily. The food options for a hot buffet were simple yet delightfully done. Every guest commented on how good the food was. Finally and most importantly the staff, I was 100% impressed, helpful, kind, considerate and incredibly polite. Great venue to host a party,
“Couple of days away”
Stayed at Blanch House for two nights with another couple as we had tickets to see Jamie Woon at Concorde. Perfectly located, warm and welcoming, and clean. Everybody here is very friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble.
We stayed on the top floor at the back of the building so it was very quiet, just the sound of the seagulls in the morning which was a lovely way to wake up before a fantastic cooked or continental breakfast complete with home made lemon curd and jams!
“What a find not to be missed”
Really enjoyed our 3 night stay at Blanch House. All the staff were very helpful, friendly and attentive. Our rooms, Sakura and Orchid were spotlessly clean, as was the rest of Blanch House, and very comfortable. We enjoyed the breakfast – delicious scrambled eggs – just one choice on a very extensive menu!
Will definitely be returning! A big thank you to Kerry and all his staff.
Excellent short break at Blanch House. Kerry and his amazing team made us all feel very welcome from the moment we arrived until the time we left. Lovely spotless cosy room. Delicious breakfast, the best we’ve had in a long time. All freshly cooked to order…… Scrambled eggs were perfect. Thanks for keeping our visit a surprise from our friend.
Highly recommend this unique little gem in Brighton.
“4th visit to Blanch House. Excellent 3 night stay.”
This was our 4th visit back to Blanch House and this time it was a group of 6 of us celebrating my Fiancée’s 40th Birthday. We had an amazing time. Kerry and his team were at every stage, helpful and friendly making us feel very welcome. Breakfast was lovely and the bar was a nice place for us to meet in evening before we headed out.
We have previously always stayed in the ‘Peonie’ room which is very nicely decorated, but as we were there for a special occasion I thought he deserved a big present so I decided to treat him and opted for the Galaxy Room – which is amazing, very spacious, bright and airy. As it is located at the top of the hotel it makes it feel a bit more special and private. Well worth the extra flight of stairs.
Can’t recommend this hotel enough and it is a lovely place to rest your tired head after a day’s exploring. We’ll be back Blanch House.
“Great Little Hotel”
My wife and I stayed in February for one night. The hotel is very close to the beach and has lots of local amenities including bars and restaurants.
The room I had booked was classed as a cosy room and was quite small but the website explains this and if you want to stay for longer than a couple of days then I would recommend a larger room.
The hotel was very clean and the staff were were very helpful and friendly, even taking our luggage to our room while we parked. They offer a 24 hr parking permit for £10 as it’s in a permit zone….The breakfast came included with the price of the room.
Would definitely recommend this hotel.
“Friendly, homely and pleasant”
Great service with friendly staff, comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast and cosy bar makes this a gem of a hotel. Located near the seafront and close to the centre makes it a very convenient place to stay. Perfect choice while in Brighton.
“Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!”
As a Brighton resident, I’ve always liked the idea of being a tourist for the day and staying somewhere fabulous and local, so was beyond delighted when my boyfriend arranged a night ‘away’ (1.4 kilometres from my house).
I’ve been hearing good things about Blanch House for years, but can now confirm that all those things are true.
We stayed in the Legacia room which is a beautiful and spacious 1930s Art Deco room with a roll top bath (big enough for two, you know!) The staff are charming and lovely, the breakfast was perfect (best poached eggs I’ve ever had) and the location is spot on for great pubs and restaurants and, a pebble’s throw from the seafront.
Not sure why anyone would stay anywhere else in Brighton?
Thanks for a perfect & charming stay
“what’s not to love?”
This place is lovely, the room was very nice, clean and well equipped. The staff were friendly, attentive & professional but not at all pretentious (Josie in particular was excellent)! They opened the dining room early so I and other runners could have an early breakfast before running the Brighton half marathon. A runner who wasn’t even staying at the hotel was offered a drink whilst waiting for her friend to finish her breakfast, which I thought was a nice touch. The cooked breakfast was amazing, as was the service.
The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the lanes and a stones throw from the sea front. We will definitely be back. It was all excellent, thank you!
“Perfect for a fab weekend”
Lovely boutique hotel with excellent friendly service in a great location – will definitely be back! We stayed for valentine’s weekend and it was ideal. The special cocktails were delicious as was the breakfast.
“We’re back – and this time it’s even better!”
Having been mightily impressed by Blanch House two years ago, we have often tried to stay there on our Brighton visits. But – possibly because of my glowing review! – it always seems to be full. This time, we booked well in advance and were lucky enough to get a room for our overnight visit. Any worries that it might not be as good as I remembered were soon dispelled – it was even better than last time, if that were possible.
The staff could not be more helpful and friendly, and our room was a stylish delight. As before, breakfast was cooked to order and utterly delicious, with home made jams and preserves as standard.
Not even a hassle with car parking – we were issued with a £10 24-hour parking permit and soon found a space within yards of the hotel.
Truly the only place to stay in Brighton!
“Excellent Boutique Hotel”
This is the kind of small hotel you scour TripAdvisor for for a weekend away. I can’t fault anything. Warm welcome, well appointed and maintained rooms, full bar, chilled out atmosphere in reception/lounge area, exceptional staff. This place has high standards including the breakfast. With rooms from £99 including breakfast (and VAT) if this place is available you should book…
“Lovely Weekend Break at Blanch House”
We stayed for two nights at Blanch House and had a lovely time. As soon as you walk through the front door you are greeted with a smile and you pick up on the relaxed but sophisticated ambience of the place.
We stayed in the Alice room as it seemed to fit our price range at the time. Alice was compact and to be honest I was a little concerned it might be too small to enjoy the stay, however to my great pleasure I was proved wrong. The room was very comfortable, stylish, had good facilities and the bed was wonderful. The en-suite bathroom was very compact however the shower cubicle was plenty big enough.
Having said this though I think we may try a larger room next time we stay.
Staff at Blanch House were very friendly and accommodating and were happy to help us with booking taxis and sorting us out with car parking permits for the duration of our stay (at cost – £10 per day).
Parking is what you should expect for Brighton. The wardens don’t seem to mind you leaving the car on yellows while you bring your bags in so there was no trouble unloading or loading up afterwards. It was the same when we lived there 11 years ago and wont get any easier with time. We managed to find a parking space in zone C within a few minutes walk just round the corner from the hotel and left the car there all weekend. During our stay we just walked into town or got taxis (depending on footwear..). It really wasn’t an issue for us.
Friday night was quiet around the hotel but on Saturday we did hear a bit of noise from outside, however by about 11.30pm this had died down.
Breakfast is fab – there is a good choice of buffet including cereals, croissants and really nice home made flapjacks. The full English is very nice and sets you up for the day.
Unfortunately we didn’t get a chance to sample any of the cocktails or sit at the reception bar for any length of time. Looking forward to doing this during our next stay at Blanch House!
“Lovely Boutique Hotel”
We really enjoyed our stay here. The room was lovely and the bed extremely comfy. The breakfast was good as we were hoping for from the reviews. Bonus having the comfy little bar. Staff were great – couldn’t have been friendlier or more helpful.
Blanch House certainly lived up to its TripAdvisor reviews. I don’t often rate 5 stars but Blanch House deserves that.
A wonderful boutique hotel, excellent service (Andy and Josie were great) our room, Legacia with roll top bath was so different from the uninspiring, faceless hotels we normally stay in. We had a minor issue in our room and it was dealt with at the time as best as possible, and quite creatively. However the excellent way in which Kerry managed the situation before we left was reminiscent of an age passed, when guests/customers were treated as the centre of any business and valued for that. (Definitely worth that 5th star).
We shall return and you should give it a try to.
“A Very Warm Welcome”
We’ve recently returned from a wonderful stay at the fantastic Blanch House. The hotel is stunning and the staff brilliant from the very warm welcome to our final check out.
We stayed in the Perrier-Jouet room as this was a birthday treat for me and what a room it is. Sumptuously decorated with a huge and very comfortable bed and a gorgeous little bathroom, we couldn’t have wanted more.
Breakfast is lovely with a wide choice of cooked options from the full English through to scotch pancakes – yum. The homemade biscuits in the room were also delicious and all too tempting.
Kerry and his team (especially Josie and Andy who were on duty over the weekend) couldn’t do enough for us, even giving me a beautiful bouquet on my birthday.
Everyone is genuinely friendly and the service was excellent – I can’t recommend it highly enough – we’ll definitely be back. Thanks for a wonderful stay Kerry and co!
This is a really well run little boutique hotel with great, intelligently helpful and genuinely friendly staff. Their rooms are all themed and decorated with great care. The beds are comfy, breakfast is more than great and it simply couldn’t be better.
We had our daughter’s 21st birthday here and it was perfect. Kerry was so helpful in organising the event and made it so easy.
We all stayed overnight and everyone loved their rooms. The rooms are all beautiful and so individual I wish I we could have stayed longer.
Canapés to start were divine. The dinner was superb and the staff were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast in the morning was scrumptious and served in a lovely relaxed manner.
If you want to stay in Brighton don’t bother staying anywhere else.
Thank you so much Kerry and all your staff we had the best time – we will be back!
“Wonderful one night stay”
We stayed in Galaxy room at the very top. Great sized room and en-suite. Amazingly quiet given how close to the seafront it is. In a quiet one way street. Staff lovely and really great cocktails. Breakfast lovely too. Couldn’t fault our stay.
I booked for my brother’s wedding and the hotel did the catering. The food was excellent, the staff friendly and efficient, and the drinks where very reasonably priced. The room was pleasant, good quality fittings and very clean, with all facilities even an iron and ironing board. It’s just on the front of the beach and my brother had a balcony room with lovely views of the sea.
I’d recommend this hotel as I had a very pleasant stay.
“A Great Christmas Present”
Booked as Christmas present, we found a lovey hotel with the best room ( Perrier Jouet) we have stayed in, very close to all of Brighton’s attractions with a very warm welcome from Kerry and all his staff.
We look forward to another stay there.
The hotel was so so so lovely, we had a cosy little room which was beautiful the bar was great for a pre dinner cocktail. The service was amazing from start to finish and the breakfast was outstanding.
We would definitely stay again thank you.
“Amazing Friendly Hotel”
We stayed at Blanch House Hotel for a 60th Birthday party in Brighton and had an excellent weekend.
I have never stayed at such a friendly hotel and my mum had a really bad cough and cold and everyone was incredibly helpful, taking food and drinks to her room.
The hotel is in a great location near the sea and walking into Brighton. The bar is beautiful and we had a delicious full English breakfast both mornings. Kerry and his team are wonderful and we cannot recommend the hotel highly enough.
Thank you all for a great stay and weekend. Fiona and Buster
“Silver Wedding Anniversary Celebration”
A delightful hotel, conveniently located for the south Lanes, the beach and the Pavilion. We stayed in the Perriet Jouet suite on a mid-week romantic break deal. Beautiful flowers and a bottle of champagne on arrival in our room and a delicious cream tea in the afternoon after lunch and ring shopping in the Lanes antique shops. Kerry was very attentive to our every need. The Blanch House cocktail is a must. Each room individually designed to give the hotel a unique feel. Great breakfast. Altogether a lovely experience to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary. Would definitely book again.
Just a lovely hotel within a stones through of the beach. Friendly staff and a relaxing atmosphere. Great breakfast too! Only suggestion would be to have the option of having a newspaper delivered on the Sunday morning. We’ll definitely be back.
“Yet another lovely stay”
This was our third stay at Blanch House and it never fails to deliver. We always receive a warm welcome , the room was lovely (Harlequin), and it is in a great location ( a short walk away from the centre).
The hotel itself is relaxing, the décor is stylish and the service is second to none. I was feeling a little worse for wear on the Saturday morning (!) so I skipped breakfast however my husband said it was as excellent as ever.
Thank you to Kerry and the team.
This is a really beautiful, clean hotel. It’s only a short walk from Brighton pier so it’s perfect for visiting the beach or lanes, but it’s very quiet. The staff are very friendly and so helpful. There is a fantastic breakfast selection and the full English was cooked beautifully. We’d definitely stay here again.
“Great place for a celebration”
Gem of a hotel in a hip part of town. We stayed here for a couple of nights and took advantage of asking the hotel to organise drink and food for my birthday celebrations. I had invited 30 or so guests and apart from agreeing the canapés and wine selection, everything else was left to Kerry and his team to sort out.
We had a great night in the perfectly sized Belle Epoque Suite. I was even allowed to provide my own music via the in-house sound system. All of my guests commented on the tasty canapés and were well looked after during the evening.
I can highly recommend the cocktails and my wife enjoyed a perfect vodka martini. Kerry and his team show genuine interest in their guests and are full of recommendations of where to eat or drink locally.
A return trip will definitely be on the cards! Thank you Kerry and Team for an enjoyable weekend!
This hotel is a little gem, immaculately clean, beautifully decorated with really friendly staff who seem genuinely interested in making your stay as perfect as possible. The icing on the cake was when I commented how much I enjoyed the home made lemon curd at breakfast and the waiter brought me out a pot to take home. Will definitely return!
“Fantastic Service, Accommodation and Food.”
Room was excellent, unique and of a high quality. Service was very good, all the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was great and the hotel is an excellent location from which to explore Brighton. Thoroughly recommended.
Another great stay at Blanch House…! Very welcoming, beautiful room, just like home from home! Lush breakfast, these guys cannot do enough for you.
Will definitely be back for a cheeky weekend stay. Thank you Kerry and Team for your hospitality!
“Excellent Boutique Hotel”
Lovely stay at Blanch House. Very warm welcome. Stayed in Art Deco Legacia room which was great including massive free standing bath. Delicious cocktails at the bar before dinner. They booked us dinner at nearby Drakes, which meant we both got a free glass of champagne on arrival at the restaurant! Highly recommend Blanch House.
“Fantastic experience, lovely hotel”
This is a truly amazing hotel. We stayed in Legacia, one of the feature rooms and it was incredible with a side sea view. The welcome from Kerry and the team was brilliant, this is such a unique place to stay.
We had food on NYE and it was fantastic, well presented and served to perfection. It’s honestly worth the price and we will definitely be returning later in the year.
We have never encountered such fantastic customer service. Nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast on New Year’s Day was served as a brunch, and the choice of freshly prepared food was great. The following day the normal breakfast menu was not a disappointment either, everything is freshly prepared.
A big thanks to all the staff at Blanch House, keep up the good work!
“Great Little Place”
I see why this place is so popular. We couldn’t have asked for much more from a hotel in Brighton…
The staff have a brilliant desire for customer service, which is what really makes this place, the best I’ve experienced in the UK.
We chose the most “basic” room if you can call it that. The bed was huge, the bathroom was beautiful and my personal favourite thing were the toiletries, Aromatherapy Associates.
If you’re choosing between this place and somewhere SLIGHTLY cheaper I would say spend the extra £20 quid per night and go here. It’ll be a relaxing and carefree experience that’ll make anyone feel like royalty.
“Excellent New Year’s Eve Stay”
We had a very warm welcome by Josie and Kerry (owner). We took the Peonie room which was cosy but all the necessary accommodation was available. In the night it was very quiet and the beds are really excellent to enjoy a good night sleep.
Breakfast was super with a choice of 5 different dishes and on New Year’s morning the choice was even bigger. Breakfast, as dinner and the 6 course meal at New Year’s Eve was superb and a wide variety. We took cocktails at the bar, followed by chicken ravioli, main course was beef and followed by a plate of cheese and chocolate cake.
Later on there was the countdown in the bar to 2016 and of course the necessary Champagne was there to accompany us through the first moments of 2016. Maybe a small party with wider dance music would have been great to top everything off.
We would like to thank the whole staff of the Blanch House to make our trip and first moments of 2016 into a great success and on top of that we have met a very nice couple of Brighton locals (Rachael and Amit). Always welcome in Belgium and we will surely return to this great, warm, friendly hotel with magnificent food. Greetings Kurt and Muriëlle.
“Great boutique hotel”
I stayed in the Snowstorm room which was lovely. Quirky hotel, loads of character and the staff were very friendly and obliging. Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was excellent – lots of choice and good quality produce. The cooked options were particularly good and they accommodated my gluten intolerance with gluten free bread.
Would definitely recommend and will…
“I don’t usually write reviews, but…”
I felt like I had to share what a great stay we had at Blanch House. We had the Snowstorm room for two nights which was very nice and tastefully decorated. The bed was extremely comfortable and bathroom clean and modern – everything up to standard. The general feel of the hotel was very warm and cosy. Literally the only thing I can suggest to be improved is a faster internet connection.
It’s obvious that providing outstanding service is a huge priority and the staff were all incredibly friendly. They genuinely seemed determined to make our stay as pleasant as possible.
I’d happily recommend the hotel to friends and should we go back to Brighton I wouldn’t hesitate in staying there again.
“Super boutique hotel, lovely room and great location”
We stayed in the Renaissance room which was cosy and just right for our one night stay. Everyone was friendly and courteous. The owner was just lovely. The restaurant they recommended, Drakes, was perfect. We had a lovely stay and would definitely go back.
“Excellent quirky hotel for a long weekend”
Stayed here for a long weekend, loved the eccentricities in the Harlequin room. We were very well looked after, breakfast was great, the staff were extremely friendly, and the cream tea was very welcome. Would love to return.
“AMAZING and FRIENDLY”
Really really lovely stay! Staff were so friendly and attentive. Rooms were GORGEOUS and the location was so easy to get around! Definitely would stay any time we are back in Brighton. Thanks Kerry and Team
“Romantic Weekend Break”
Had a fantastic over night stay at Blanch House, third time now and every time the staff have been amazing, so helpful and friendly, and the accommodation has been spotless throughout. The romantic package they offer is such good value! Home made scones with cream and home made jam, a bottle of champagne and a lovely bouquet of flowers as well as a superb choice at breakfast. I’d rate our stay 10/10 and look forward to going back. Big thank you to all at Blanch House.
“What a fantastic hotel”
The nicest boutique hotel I have ever stayed in. The Legacia room is gorgeous, the art deco design is wonderful. The bed was very comfy and the bathroom was modern and spotless. Breakfast was delicious and the staff are lovely.
Thanks for a wonderful stay! Highly recommended!
“Best Boutique Hotel in Brighton”
My husband and I used to live in Brighton so we know it well, but we only just came across this place and were blown away by the welcome, service, decor, breakfast, location and everything about it, really! The rooms are absolutely gorgeous, and the hotel bar is great. Very central, right next to the sea. It will always be my first choice now, whenever we come back to Brighton. The place lives up to its excellent reviews, and deserves such high praise.
“Company Christmas Dinner”
We are a family run business and our head office, consisting of 17 people, went to Blanch House on a Friday evening for our Christmas dinner. I have known Blanch House, Kerry and the team, for some time and I was excited to introduce my new colleagues to the fantastic ambiance, food and hospitality that is Blanch House.
We all had a wonderful evening, we were so well looked after, we laughed and enjoyed ourselves in the private dining room and it was the talk of the office this morning.
Thank you so much Blanch House, as always your reputation of class, elegance, beautiful style and fantastic staff continues. We cannot wait to find another reason to come back.
“Perfect in every way”
We were here for a romantic getaway of one night to recharge before Christmas. The staff remembered us from our previous stays which was lovely!
We had booked the romantic package which includes a cream tea (just the right size), bottle of Champagne (lovely) and a big cheerful bunch of flowers. We were unexpectedly upgraded to the Perrier Jouet room, which was huge and very classy! Had a great nights sleep on the King bed and we both had a soak in the claw-foot bath (bliss!).
We managed to find a great French restaurant in the area (24 St Georges Restaurant Kemptown) where the food was sublime. All in all, a great break! Well done to all at Blanch House, we feel well recharged.
Louise and Giles
Stayed for one night on the 7th December, we found the staff extremely friendly and helpful. From the welcome call en- route to our departure.
We stayed in the Moroccan room which we found very comfortable, it was nice to have freshly baked shortbread and biscuits to have with our tea in our room. The hotel was located not too far from the centre so we were able to walk to the lanes and beyond quite easily.
The breakfast was very good with very attentive service…
Very enjoyable. We would be more than happy to stay at Blanch house the next time we visit Brighton.
“Fun for Christmas”
William Alexander are a local Recruitment Company in Brighton and we choose Blanch House for our venue for a wonderful Champagne reception and 3 course meal to start our evenings festivities. We weren’t disappointed! It’s a lovely setting and we were made to feel very welcome, the staff were all very friendly and they coped with us well!
The food was excellent, I can highly recommend the beer battered halloumi and the lamb shank was divine and it was all washed down with a selection of fantastic wine….
“Fantastic Wedding Venue”
My husband and I got married at Blanch House at the beginning of October; we stayed Friday and Saturday night with our guests and I cannot fault the hotel.
Kerry and the team were simply amazing, nothing was too much trouble for the whole weekend; the service all of our guests received over the weekend was fantastic, breakfast went down particularly well!
The rooms are all unique and well decorated throughout; I particularly liked the homemade shortbread that is left in the room daily.
One of the reason’s we booked Blanch House was Kerry himself; he knew what we wanted to achieve from the first time we met him & he was always on hand to support us on the day and through-out the planning.
We will definitely be back for another stay…
“Birthday Weekend Away”
This is the first time we had visited Blanch House and we were not disappointed. Very friendly staff. Well kept communal areas. Lovely breakfast. (I can recommend the scotch pancakes). Large and very clean bedroom (Galaxy). Even storm Desmond couldn’t ruin our weekend.
First time in Brighton for a gig. Wonderful hospitality from Kerry and the friendly and approachable team who made us feel very welcome with a room service Hendricks and tonic, garnished with cucumber. They did some internet digging for us and were very friendly and approachable, chatty without being intrusive. Great location for stroll to Brighton Centre and the main shops. Only downside was trip was too short!!
“Wonderfully generous hospitality”
We were greeted by Kerry, one of the owners, he sorted our parking and explained that as the hotel was not completely full they were able to offer us free room upgrade! We were shown to Legacia, a gorgeous art deco furnished room with a side view to the sea. The attention to detail was incredible and the housekeeping was immaculate.
We were on a two night package which included a cream tea and drinks in the bar on both nights. We took these in the cosy lounge bar and were served by friendly professional staff. The breakfast deserves special mention – generous quantity and finest quality ingredients.
We were not surprised to hear that the hotel had won two awards recently, one at a ceremony at the Grand Hotel on our first night!
Overall we were impressed by the generous quality of the hospitality and we will return!
“very Nice Place to Stay”
We visited midweek at the start of December. Prior to booking my partner called several times for information and the staff were very helpful and patient.
On arrival we were greeted by the owner, who simply could not have been more helpful. As an advert for his hotel, he made a very positive first impression. He helped us in with luggage, sorted a parking permit and showed us to our room. He also gave a tour of the hotel and provided information about the local area.
We went to our room, Harlequin (all the rooms are unique!). This was a very nice room decorated in black and white. The bed was huge and the room well decorated. The en suite was clean and well maintained. The toiletries also were of a high standard and suggested some real effort had been made to look after guests. Also the rooms all had plenty of linen and individual dressing gowns.
We explored the centre of town but came back for a drink during the evening in the bar which was very pleasant.
The room was quiet overnight and we slept well. Breakfast the next morning was very pleasant and cooked to order…Checkout was again an effortless process.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone, and the owner particularly was fantastic.
All the rooms are different so please bear this in mind when booking.
“An Enjoyable Stay”
Extremely friendly, fantastic breakfast and great location. The lovely staff were very attentive, obviously happy to work there and very proud of their recent awards. Thanks for an enjoyable stay! We will see you again!
“Beautiful hotel, owners and staff were exceptional”
A friend and I spent a long weekend at Blanch House in October and it was excellent. The room was beautiful (we stayed in the Legacia), and the owners and staff we encountered were lovely. Perfect weekend, I would love to stay there again. Brighton was a lot of fun, too, and the hotel is in the perfect location to enjoy everything the city has to offer. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go.
We had a lovely stay for 2 nights in October. The service was so warm and welcoming. They were really helpful with recommendations of where to visit and restaurants for the evening. Fantastic location, we walked everywhere.
Would definitely stay again when visiting Brighton.
“Wonderful Venue for a Celebration”
A friend hosted a birthday Sunday lunch at this lovely hotel. The staff were totally delightful and the food just perfect. I cannot recommend this venue enough for a special celebration.
Thank you so much Blanch House.
“Great venue for a celebration”
We booked the hotel for its private dining to celebrate my partner’s 50th birthday.
The organisation and great atmosphere was the key to a fantastic evening. Everything that was promised was delivered with warm hospitality, wonderful service and really great food for 22 of us.
Everyone felt very special and the center of attention from the hotel staff who went above and beyond to make everyone feel very welcome. As we only used the hotel for the dining experience, we can’t comment on the rest of the hotel’s facilities but I’m sure the quality would match that of the bar, lounge and dining experience.
We were in Brighton for a seminar and the University found us a lovely room at this welcoming guest house. Great location, wonderful staff and up to date, comfy accommodations. Good Wi Fi too. Would highly recommend Blanch House for your holiday or business travel to Brighton.
Beautifully clean hotel, the attention to detail is fantastic; from the perfectly cooked breakfasts (with homemade hash browns!) to the restaurant guide in the room.
The decor is modern and upscale, the staff are so warm and helpful, and nothing is too much trouble. The location is just off the sea front and a very short walk from all the main attractions.
Cannot recommend this place enough.
“Great host, perfect location, good room and decor”
The host was great, very welcoming & friendly, He made sure we had everything we needed without hassling. The location was right by the seafront, perfect walking location to everything in Brighton. Breakfast was good, but the Bloody Mary’s were Great!
“Thoroughly enjoyable stay”
Although we were only staying at the Blanch House hotel for one night, we were both extremely satisfied with everything about the hotel…
…we could not have been made welcome, with the staff bringing in our luggage while we found a rare parking space. They even carried one of our bags while they showed us to our room. Mostly, especially in the large chain hotels, we are only given directions to our room. It is little things, like the personal touch which make a difference. A welcoming cuppa later ,and we were ready to explore some of Brighton’s shopping lanes.
Our room was of a decent size, with a king bed to relax upon. Although the bathroom was small, it was tastefully decorated and adequate. The free wi-fi in the hotel was a bonus, as it was far quicker than most other hotels.
Having back problems, I had an ice pack with me. The staff were only too pleased to place the ice pack inside the freezer for me. As it happened, I did not wake up the following morning with a stiff back, as is often the case. Full marks for the bed quality.
Our cooked breakfast the next morning ensured that we did not starve. Especially as we had quite a long drive to our next destination.
All in all, I cannot praise the friendly owners high enough. If we do happen to find ourselves in Brighton again, this will be our first hotel choice.
“Recommend in Brighton”
Second stay here and will definitely return. Lovely staff, comfy bed, great decor, delicious breakfast, fab location. Easy walk into town. Made to feel very welcome. They even called to ask if they could have anything ready for our arrival.
“In the week”
We were amazed by how wonderfully good everything was about our stay. The room was beautiful, the staff were kind and interested. We’d booked the room to go to a gig in Brighton and to have a couple of days away. It couldn’t have been better. I cannot recommend this hotel too highly. They’re good people, and well worth every bit of praise they get.
Sorry this review is late,I forgot must be old age,we stayed here for a romantic break for our anniversary, and couldn’t of ask for more.
When we arrived we were told we had been upgraded to the Perrier Jouet room which was fabulous, a bottle of prosecco waiting in an ice bucket and a lovely bouquet that made the room smell lovely.
It was a beautiful room with a fabulous chandelier, a separate bathroom with a bath,shower and toilet and plenty of toiletries supplied, it was all lovely and clean, sheets,towels, the staff were very friendly and helpful,while we waited in the bar before going to our room the staff gave us a map and showed us several restaurants on it that we may enjoy,we decided on a fish restaurant down on the front, Riddle and Finns, would recommend that as well as Blanch House.
We had a cocktail in the bar before going out to eat and then a night cap when we got back,the place was rather busy then as they had a special dinner on but wasn’t a hindrance at all…would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to friends and family.
“Amazing Wedding at an Amazing Hotel”
My wife and I stayed at this hotel in early October to celebrate our best friend’s wedding. The venue and staff were fantastic throughout our stay.
We arrived late afternoon on the Friday and we were greeted by Kerry who kindly helped us bring in our luggage and showed us to our individually designed room. We stayed in Legacia. It is a large spacious room that is very art deco in style with a beautiful bay window. The room felt very homely and the super king sized bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom had both a bath and a shower. The whole room was immaculately clean. Kerry then gave me a parking ticket for £20 which covered me to park nearby for 48 hours.
After a first nights comfortable sleep we came down to breakfast on the Saturday and were greeted by very friendly staff. The choice of breakfast is excellent, from cereals to an amazing full English. I can highly recommend the cooked breakfast especially the black pudding!
The wedding in the afternoon and through into the evening went without a hitch and the staff were always on hand to help and join in. Nothing was too much trouble.
All in all I would highly recommend this hotel and I will hopefully stay here again in the future.
An amazing wedding at an amazing hotel!
“Couldn’t have been better”
Booked a short few days break away for myself and my partner, staying two nights here. Kerry welcomed us on arrival and from then on both he and his staff could not have been more helpful. We stayed in the Morroccan suite but took a cheeky nose into some of the other rooms and they were all of the highest class as well. Breakfasts were excellent and the homemade biscuits in the room were possibly the nicest shortbreads we have ever eaten!
Would absolutely, definitely, certainly stay there again.
We stayed overnight one Sunday evening and we will definitely return. The room was lovely. The staff very friendly and the service excellent. the homemade biscuits were very tasty and the cocktails amazing!
If you want service with a smile, a good night sleep and a full English breakfast, this is the hotel for you!
“Friendly place to stay”
Just got back this hotel. It was just off the seafront so good location.The staff were welcoming and very helpful. The room was wonderful. It was a good size with free Wi-Fi and TV. The bed was comfortable and I loved its art deco style. The roll top bath was a hit especially with the great products Aromatherapy associates supplied. (already on my Christmas list) The breakfast was great .
Would highly recommend.
“Deserves the accolades”
Stayed a couple of days with my wife and daughter and can’t praise this place enough. Outstanding customer service and staff are thoroughly lovely and attentive to every detail. The room was a delight and breakfast is outstanding.
Delightful staff and a fabulous place to stay in a great location. We stayed for one night and had a lovely room and delicious breakfast. Homemade biscuits and snacks brought to our room were really nice touches. Perfect for any occasion.
“Fabulous boutique hotel in Brighton… Just as good as we remembered”
We stayed at Blanch House for the second time this year. We stayed in the Perrier Jouet room which was lovely. Huge comfortable bed, and lovely roll top bath to sink into.
The welcome call from Kerry (one of the owners) on the day of our arrival was a nice touch. Basically to say we look forward to seeing you, is there anything we can do for you.
Breakfast was perfect. Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs; full English. Served with decent coffee.
Blanch House is definitely on our list of places to return to, again and again.
“A great place to stay”
A lovely little hotel staffed by people with big hearts and great service. We stayed for a long weekend and enjoyed it’s quirky feel and being so close to all we needed was a bonus.
We would certainly use this place again.
The hotel was very clean with lovely staff that were very helpful. The location is very good for restaurants and bars and beautiful walks along the seafront. We had a lovely breakfast we will be coming back, thank you Blanch House.
“Superb Boutique Hotel”
Loved our recent stay here at the Blanch House. The attention to detail was second to none. Kerry, Jeremy and the team could not do enough for us during our stay. The breakfast was superb, one of the best I have tasted. It’s location was excellent with a 10 minute walk to the main spots of Brighton. We stayed in a Poppy room and it was roomy, comfortable and clean.
Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Brighton.
“The friendliest hotel we’ve ever stayed in”
We stayed here for one night after my niece’s wedding in Worthing. We now wish we’d booked Blanch House for longer. Kerry and his staff were the perfect hosts. Genuinely friendly and keen to advise us on our stay.
When we arrived early to drop our bags off we were offered a very welcome cup of coffee. We came back later to check in and our room (Renaissance) was fantastic. Everything was of a very high standard and even the biscuits with the tea and coffee were first rate. The bathroom is very small, but that’s the only negative I can think of. The bed is big and we slept very well.
Breakfast was also excellent and, frankly, we wanted for nothing. We’ve never been to a place that naturally exuded such calm and professionalism. It was an utter joy to stay there and we wouldn’t think of staying anywhere else in Brighton. Wonderful.
Just back from a great weekend in Brighton staying at Blanch House. Wonderful hotel with very friendly and attentive service. The room (Perrier Jouet) was beautifully appointed, comfortable and clean.
Thanks to Kerry, your staff and your hotel, you should be very proud.
“Really welcoming, great location”
We were warmly welcomed by Kerry upon our arrival. He provided us with a street map and interesting places to go. He also asked us to let him or any of the team know if we had any problems or needed any advice etc to just ask. Kerry also recommended a couple of nearby restaurants. He wasn’t at all intrusive just really friendly – as were all the staff we met. We did have a very minor problem with the shower and true to his word he was there immediately and sorted it out promptly.
The room was lovely and warm with a large comfy bed (Poppy room). Breakfast was hearty with a good range of food – immaculately presented and fresh. We had a cream tea and tickets to the Pavillion as part of our deal – we were very pleased with both. Our freshly baked cream tea was brought to our room (no room service charge).
We were lucky and were able to park almost outside (we arrived at about 2.30pm on a Monday afternoon). We didn’t need the car over our 2 night stay.
The location was excellent – 2 mins to the seafront, 5 mins to Kemp town, and about 10 mins easy walk to the town.
Brighton is a fab place to visit – really unique sights and shops, with a great atmosphere. If we were to return I wouldn’t hesitate to stay at Blanch House again.
“Intimate, Friendly and Helpful”
No wonder this is trip advisers number 1 for Brighton. Charming town house with a team of staff that are clearly passionate about what they do.
Staff were beyond helpful in every way from parking on arrival, advice on where to visit or eat, carrying bags to our room, cooling down a warm room…….everything.
Kerry made time to get to know us, one of the many simple touches that makes this place a must revisit or recommend as a place to stay.
“More than a home from home”
From start to finish, the experience we had for our one night stay was professional; high quality and luxurious. Kerry is an excellent host and uses his skills in hospitality to every advantage. We stayed in the ‘Poppy’ room which was decorated to a high standard. The breakfast menu was different (porridge with banana and cinnamon) and beautifully cooked. You could see that Kerry had put his heart and soul in to the business and it has paid off. A tasteful, homely place and we would definitely stay again.
“Great Stay and Fantastic Room”
We stopped for a couple of days in the Legacia room. The room itself was wonderfully appointed in an art deco style, had a side sea view and a fantastic bathroom with roll top bath.
Kerry and the team were extremely friendly and couldn’t do enough to help, great choices at breakfast and everything was fresh and very well cooked.
“Wedding Reception and Stay”
From our very first planning meeting with Kerry the proprietor of Blanch House we were very impressed. Nothing was too much trouble and we loved the friendliness, positivity and professionalism of all his team.
We stayed for 2 nights in the Perrier Jouet room. Well worth it for a special occasion. We had our drinks reception and canapés in the bar/lounge. A great room for our 28 guests to mingle. The 3 course meal was superb. Particularly the lamb. The meal service went like clockwork. All very well planned and executed. A sign of great teamwork.
We look forward to coming back for our anniversary stay.
“Lives up to its Number 1 rating for Brighton”
A three night stopover, Sunday to Tuesday, mini break with my girlfriend. Our room was the Snowstorm room which was on one of the higher floors.
I had read a lot of the reviews before I came and the hotel very much lived up to my expectations. Staff were great, warm welcoming and very accommodating. Met one of the owners who was equally nice and very flexible when we needed to leave a day early.
Breakfast was great each morning, lovely food and plenty of it for both carnivores and vegetarians…
…I would definitely stay there again and would recommend booking direct with the hotel as the online agents were rubbish and had no idea of the hotels actual vacancies
“Great Guest House and Breakfast”
Lovely little guest house in Kemp Town. Friendly reception, homemade biscuits in your room, clean and nice toiletries in the bathroom. The breakfast in the morning was really nice as well. Great coffee is worthwhile noting.
“Excellent Mini Break”
Great location, close to the sea front. Friendly Staff. The breakfast was a lovely start to the day, great choice freshly prepared.
We stayed in the galaxy Suite on the top floor, very spacious and the bathroom was very clean with modern fittings.
We traveled to Brighton to see a show and enjoyed the resort so much that we will return and will definitely book Blanch House for our accommodation.
“Perfect hotel, perfect location”
Browsing through endless hotels I stumbled across this beauty. I’m so glad I did, the minute the door is opened you are welcomed warmly. Located in a quiet side street, it’s minutes to the beach and pier.
We stayed in the Harlequin room, a dark, theatrical, spacious room with a wonderful chandelier to add to the ambiance. The bathroom was in keeping with the style. The extra touch of bathrobes is most welcoming after a shower.
Breakfast is fabulous. Everything cooked fresh with quality ingredients. The full English was cooked to perfection. The homemade marmalade is particular yummy!
Kerry made us feel so welcome as did the other staff.
Will happily come back to stay.
“Perfect for a Seaside Break”
We chose to stay here based on the fantastic TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. The location was perfect for us, a quiet side street just a few minutes walk to the pier and about ten minutes to the Lanes. There are also plenty of restaurants, bars and shops just a few minutes away.
We stayed in the Perrier Jouet room which was spacious and very nicely done up. Very nice breakfast too.
Kerry (the owner) was very welcoming and we will definitely return.
“Fantastic Hotel in a Great Location”
Obviously checked out the hotel via this site and booked. Good location 2 mins walk to the sea front. 10 minute walk to the lanes.
The owners were fantastic. Rang the doorbell and was warmly welcomed and bags taken away whilst we went around town until later. Once back, were checked in and given a front door key and room key. Lovely room ‘Moroccan’, well thought out and on first floor at the back. No road noise.
Tucked up a nice side street. We were lucky with a car park space 2 doors up but there is a space outside to park for 5 mins right outside so you can pick up a car park ticket.
Breakfast was superb. Normal juice, home made cakes, croissants and cereal. Also fully cooked breakfasts of various types and of excellent quality. For toast home made marmalade, jam and lemon curd of very high quality.
The way we were looked after by Kerry and the rest of the staff was exceptional and we can only see this is the reason why they are number 1.
“Lovely One Night Stay at Blanch House”
After discovering that several hotels in Brighton had ramped up their prices courtesy of the Labour Party conference, I discovered Blanch House by going direct on the internet. At £105:00 it was £60-70 cheaper than anywhere else we could find, so imagine our pleasant surprise when we were greeted with warmth and friendliness in a beautifully decorated hotel.
Unlike many places where we have stayed in Brighton (most of them have been nice) Blanch House offer a unique personal touch with an introductory email upon booking and a telephone call before you arrive, asking if there were any additional requirements.
The room was fresh and clean but as is the norm with me, it had a shower that had our impracticable brains scrambled with regards to getting hot water out of it (press the red button down as you turn it).
In my world, I long for the day when there will be universal shower temperature knobs as standard requirement in hotels.
So anyway, the breakfast was varied and excellent, in a room with a lovely temperature, vital ingredients for the fuzzy head I was suffering after over indulging in several bars and clubs around the Kemp Town area on Sunday night.
We met Kerry the owner when we departed and his warm personality and genuine (not overbearing) gratitude for our business summed the hotel up the atmosphere perfectly.
We will certainly come to Blanch House again on our next visit to Brighton.
“Outstanding, we’re definitely staying again”
We found this hotel via google search and are very glad we did. From the moment of booking, to arriving and departing the staff, particularly Josie were incredible and attentive. NOTHING was too much trouble and we had a fantastic anniversary weekend stay.
We rather foolishly didn’t book a restaurant on the Friday night but Josie tirelessly found us and recommended an alternative, Sawadee in St. James’ St. We’re going back there too!
The bed was very comfy in the Galaxy room and the room lovely and clean… Kerry, the Manager and his staff, go out of their way to ensure your stay is pleasurable and memorable for all the right reason.
If you’re coming to Brighton, stay here please!!!
Stayed for 2 nights in September – the location was perfect with very short walk to seaside. Many great restaurants, pubs and shopping were in the area.
The customer service aspect was amazing – the staff were most helpful, friendly and made you feel like a valued customer.
Thank you for making our stay so memorable and we would definitely stay again!
“Great location, lovely helpful staff, good food, highly recommended”
Good location, 2 minutes from sea front, restaurants and shops near by. The staff are very helpful, rooms very nice. We received a call an hour before arrival, which gave us the opportunity to upgrade. We stayed two nights, and would definitely come back probably at Christmas time to do the shops. Recommended!
We recently held a very important work dinner meeting at Blanch House. They were absolutely brilliant, beforehand with all the details and then particularly the night of the event. It is a gorgeous venue and perfect for a drinks reception first
(and bar for afterwards!!) and everyone loved the food. The staff were fantastic and so friendly and helpful.
A few colleagues stayed over and they said the rooms were stunning. I came back to the hotel for breakfast which was also fantastic.
Really can’t recommend this venue enough, we will definitely be back!
“Lovely little hotel. great room. Nice bars around and quiet (but still near the seafront).”
Arrived late.They have a friendly little bar and there’s a few nice places nearby. The hotel was spotless, rooms well equipped and free wi-fi. The street is quiet but it very well positioned. Couldn’t fault the friendliness of the staff and they came across as extremely competent.
Would definitely stay again.
We stayed for one night midweek and the hotel was full. It is obviously very popular. The welcome was warm and helpful regarding parking, we got a space one street away just £10 for 24 hours. We stayed in Peony, the bed was very comfortable with good pillows and duvet. Don’t bring too much luggage as the storage space is limited! Small but well fitted bathroom. Breakfast was very tasty and there was a good choice but service was slow that day.
Lovely friendly staff. Room was gorgeous not huge but perfectly formed and the inclusion of homemade biscuits was definitely most welcome. The breakfast was excellent and the request for more tea/toast was speedily acted upon. 2 mins from the seafront and 5 mins from The Lanes, would definitely stay there again.
There were eight of us visiting Brighton for a weekend of rugby world cup watching. I booked this hotel back in December and the gentleman I spoke to on the phone was very friendly and helpful.
The morning of our visit I received a phone call from the hotel to say they were looking forward to meeting us and asking if there was anything they could help us with before we arrived. I thought this was a really nice gesture.
On arrival we received a warm welcome and were shown to our beautiful rooms (we stayed in the Harlequin) I cannot say enough nice things about this hotel and it’s staff and will definitiley return. There were some lovely little extra touches, such as homemade cookies and shortbread in the room. The bar area was a perfect space to meet our friends and have drinks before heading out (would recommend the bramble cocktail). There was a great selection of high quality food at breakfast and it was cooked to perfection. Location of the hotel is ideal for the seafront and pier.
Look forward to our next visit.
After staying in the wonderful Legacia room after our wedding my wife booked us a two night stay in the Harlequin room with the romantic package (cream tea, bouquet of flowers and bottle of champagne). As we thought we were not disappointed the staff, delightful, the room, outstanding, the breakfast, delicious and the Champagne on ice on arrival just fantastic.
We love this hotel and will be staying there again and again.
“Beautiful Boutique Hotel in the Heart of Brighton”
Lovely room with a very comfortable bed and nice and quiet. Friendly helpful staff and tasty cooked breakfast. Despite being a resident in Brighton, my partner and were treated by a friend to a “night away” and we felt truly pampered, relaxed and spoilt at Blanch House.
“Great. Highly Recommended”
We spent a lovely long weekend in Blanch House. Great rooms and ideal position as it is situated just off the seafront, less than 5 minute walk from Brighton pier. Great breakfast that kept us going all day.
A big ‘thank you’ to all the helpful staff who ensured we had everything we needed.
We recommend Blanch House and we will be staying with them again in the future.
“A Wonderful Stay”
Our stay on bank holiday Monday was wonderful. Kerry is a wonderful host and was extremely hospitable throughout our stay.
We stayed in the Moroccan Room, a lovely sized room with a wonderful theme. The themed rooms gives Blanch House an edge as well as being so close to the sea front and being in Kemp Town.
The breakfast was wonderful – Siony was a brilliant breakfast host and catered to my vegan requirements and made sure that we were happy with our meal.
I would highly recommend staying at Blanch House!
“Loved every minute of our stay at Blanch House”
Thank you Kerry, Josie and Siony for a perfect vacation in Brighton. From the minute we arrived, we were greeted warmly and the hospitality continued throughout our time there. We constantly imposed on the Blanch House family with questions and requests and were never made to feel like we were imposing. My family stayed at the Blanch House the first week of September.
If you are wondering if you should just stay at a chain hotel, I would say in this case, book this hotel instead. The difference between staying here and a chain hotel is that the owner truly cares that you are comfortable, instead of the pretending you receive at a chain. Plus each room is different, with its own personality, instead of being identical to every room in the building.
I strongly recommend the Perrier-Jouet room over the others. This room is gorgeous, spacious, romantic, and has the best bathroom in the building. My daughters stayed in the Harlequin room, which was a great room for sleeping because it was both dark and quiet, but was smaller and did not have a bathtub.
Blanch House has a very convenient location because it is walking distance to the majority of attractions, shopping, restaurants, the Pier, etc..
When we return to Brighton, we will certainly stay here again.
Found this place through TripAdvisor so thanks to all the previous reviewers. Just a block from the sea. Our room Legecia has a view from the bay window. Elegant rooms. Incredible breakfast included. Made to order from about 7 selections. Rooms are large. Well, ours was. Beds comfortable. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Needed a taxi from and to the train station. But walking distance to town center and the regents pavilion.
“Impressive Overnight Stay”
From being welcomed outside when we first arrived at Blanch House the service and assistance was outstanding. In the past we have stayed at the larger Brighton Hotels but from now on we will only return to Blanch House.
Rooms etc. are very comfortable plus it was very close to the seafront.
We recently stayed here for a weekend for my husband’s 60th birthday. Kerry was most welcoming and had arranged for the 6 of us to have a bottle of champagne in the bar before we went out that evening.
Our rooms were comfortable and tastefully furnished and some flowers had been left in the room for us! Breakfast was delicious with a very good choice.
The hotel is in a really good location. Kerry and Charlotte gave excellent recommendations for restaurants and things to do in Brighton and nothing was too much trouble for them. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend this hotel .
“What a Gem”
Excellent little place – easy walking to town centre and beach front. Clean and great hospitality. Would stay again and would definitely recommend, No baked beans at breakfast but that’s the only criticism!
Tucked away down a side street, but conveniently located to enjoy the sights of Brighton this is a real hidden gem. The rooms are all individually decorated and very comfortable. Kerry, the owner, made us feel very welcome, helped with our bags and generally made us feel like house guests.
The bar is a lovely area to sit and relax over a beer or a cocktail. Breakfast was generous and excellent quality.
We only spent one night, so will definitely return for a longer stay next time.
I visited blanch house for the 27th to 28th August. Parking was really easy and simple and cheap for the area! The member of staff was very polite and welcoming and told us the best places to go in the area! Was also a lovely room, even though it was the small room it didn’t seem it at all.
Best hotel I’ve stayed in, in ages! Strongly recommend!
“Best Hotel in Brighton”
Amazing unique quaint hotel . Fantastic staff especially Charlotte a real asset to the hotel . All of the staff at this hotel were amazing. Really helpful . Very informative very close to the sea breakfast was cooked just perfect , would highly recommend this hotel to everyone, thank you to everyone for such an amazing time.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Blanch House for a couple of days. I have to say, the house is fantastic! Our room (The Harlequin) was very comfortable and decorated beautifully with an en suite bathroom to match.
The owner Kerry Turner was there to greet us, very friendly, warm and welcoming as well as the rest of the staff, who were always on hand to help with the best places to visit, including restaurants and cafes. I have to mention the home made biscuits and breakfast were amazing!!!
Our stay there was brilliant! Definitely will be coming back to Blanch House again.
“Really Lovely Hotel and Lovelier Staff”
Me and my boyfriend stayed at Blanch Hotel for 4 nights and absolutely loved it! The staff were really kind and friendly, giving us brilliant recommendations for places to go and making us feel really welcome!
The room we were in was called “cosy” but it was beautifully decorated and we were actually very comfortable. There were home-made biscuits every day and the hotel breakfast was perfect.
The location is great, a short walk from the pier and the cocktail bar has a lovely ambience to unwind in.
The small details and the personal touches made this hotel a really memorable and great find, will absolutely be staying here again!
Well laid out, quiet and very friendly staff. Greeted nicely and everything was discussed. Home made cookies are a bonus!
I managed to sleep very well (something that I don’t normally do in hotels) and cooked breakfast was excellent. Not an ideal area for parking (I ended up in the seafront nearby which is free 8pm – 9am) but hotel was good value and worth it.
Will certainly stay again if in the area.
My wife and I stayed here after attending a wedding in Sussex, we were greeted by a very friendly member of staff and shown to our room which was beautifully decorated, very private and comfortable.
Breakfast the next morning was delicious and again the staff were very courteous and polite.
We only stayed for one night but would have loved to have stayed for longer. As all staff were great.
Had a nice chat with the owner before leaving and he was genuine and very pleasant.
I don’t often leave reviews but felt compelled to after this stay.
“A wonderful stay made so fantastic by the staff”
We brought my parents here to celebrate my Dad’s 60th birthday. When I made the booking I received an e-mail from the hotel saying if there was anything I could think of to help the stay special to let them know. I didn’t have to do this as the hotel made the stay so memorable without my asking.
From the moment we received a courtesy call before we’d even left for Brighton, to the flowers ready in my parent’s room when we arrived and Champagne reception provided for us on our first night there the hotel were kind, courteous, attentive and full dedicated to ensuring we had a great stay.
The rooms themselves are wonderful. We stayed in Perrier Jouet, Alice and Snowstorm. Each room is completely unique with its own style and feel, yet each met the same high standards already talked about on here. Could not fault a thing about them!
But what made the stay more fantastic wasn’t the rooms, it was the incredible team of people who work there. Our hugest thanks must go to Kerry who gave us such a warm welcome it was like we’d known him for years. He helped us decided who should have which room, suggested places for us to go, restaurants for us to eat in and even helped us prepare the surprise party we were having for my Dad. He and his team could not have done more for us and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts for making the trip so perfect.
I would not hesitate for a second to recommend this place to anyone staying in Brighton for not only is the location excellent and the rooms of an exemplary standard but the staff make you feel so special and welcome. We will certainly be coming back again!
“Comfortable and Friendly”
We had a three night stay in Blanch House’s Renaissance room. It was cosy, but absolutely fine for three nights, lovely big comfortable bed, excellent pillows, and a great, bijou shower room. All recently decorated and spotless. Breakfasts were delicious, Kerry and the team were extremely helpful and friendly, and the whole experience was effectively faultless.
We’ll be back!
“Warm and Very Welcoming”
Best bijoux hotel ever. Kerry was v welcoming, efficient and helpful. Rooms were spotless and comfortable Beautifully decorated. Wanted for nothing. And the breakfast, cooked to order, was fabulous.
Would not stay anywhere else in Brighton again.
“Fantastic Little Gem”
Having normally stayed at the Premier Inn and such like in Brighton, thought I’d have a change. Glad I did! Friendly, personal Kerry greeted me at reception, and quickly booked me in.
I was showed up to my room, the smallest I believe in the hotel room collection (the orchid), but it was still very nice, clean, and decorated to a very good standard. Had a fantastic nights sleep, and breakfast service was also impeccable in the morning.
Would definitely stay again.
“Great service and close to the sea”
I stayed for 2 nights with my partner and loved it. We were in the Sakura room which was advertised as small, but still had a king sized bed and full bathroom with bath. The welcome was very friendly and detailed with a map of the area and the places we hoped to visit marked on it as we chatted to the owner.
Breakfast was lovely and plenty of choice.
I couldn’t fault it at all for a quick getaway to Brighton. The service made such a difference and the home made biscuits in the room were delicious. Makes a big difference compared to the more expensive chain hotels.
Good work Blanch House! Keep it up!
“Really memorable wedding day”
A big thank you to Kerry and your wonderful staff who ensured that our daughter’s recent wedding was a fantastic success. From start to finish on the day, every little detail was covered and meticulously run.
The ceremony took place in an intimate and beautifully set out room and despite the worst of British summer weather outside the photos and post wedding drinks/canapés worked really well whilst the wedding breakfast was being set up.
Onto the “breakfast” itself, which was absolutely fantastic in terms of quality of food, generous portions and reconfigured room layout. The stand out was the lamb main tender and extremely tasty. Our vegetarian and vegan guests were also well catered for.
The staff perfectly read the mood of the room for service and couldn’t have been helpful and seemed genuinely interested in the occasion.
I can’t speak highly enough of the Blanch House if you want a high quality superior wedding experience. Now planning to revisit for afternoon teas and cocktails to keep in touch with the hotel.
“Lovely hotel, will recommend and stay again”
Stayed at Blanch House for two nights for our anniversary, and loved it! Will definitely stay again. Beautiful place, room was lovely, very comfy bed, clean and well presented room, great location, yummy breakfast with good choice, fantastic staff who could not have been better!
Would recommend this hotel definitely! Thanks Blanch House!
“A Real Gem”
Really friendly staff, fabulous room (Harliquin), lots of lovely extras, bottled water, biscuits really nice touch. Kerry was very attentive and full of local knowledge I.e. good places to eat. Breakfast was exceptionally good.
Would highly recommend.
Beautiful room, fantastic cocktails and Kerry (Owner) made every effort to ensure we felt welcome. A gorgeous boutiquey B&B, this place is fantastic for a weekend getaway. Definitely recommended to friends!
“Wow, very special”
Having not had a weekend away in 16 years of marriage we decided to treat ourselves and wow we were not disappointed, from talking to Kerry when initially booking till leaving on Sunday everything was great.
We decided to stay in the Legacia suite, an Art Deco room with a lovely feel and massive bed, beautiful bathroom and lovely big window with a view of the sea, not a direct view but a view nonetheless.
The staff at all times were both helpful and happy, nothing appeared to be any trouble and indeed they were always happy to talk and are a credit.
The bar area is lovely to sit down and relax and the breakfast and choice is fantastic from home made muesli, scrambled eggs and salmon to the traditional full English.
Go there and find out for yourselves, a wonderful location, a nice farewell and we will definitely be revisiting in the future, you will not be disappointed.
“Lovely place to stay, feels professional yet homely and great decor.”
We wanted somewhere to stay as we were visiting the racecourse for Ladies Day. The other couple we were going with found Blanch House on Trip Advisor and after a two night stay it is well worthy of all the positive reviews.
On arrival we were welcomed by a bubbly and friendly member of the the team who explained about getting to the racecourse and drawing directions on a map (also given at check in). She showed us to our room The Snowstorm Room. This was beautifully decorated yet had that twist of uniqueness expected of Brighton with a couple of display cabinets full of snow globes with a blue, silver and snowball crystal lamps and a celling light. There was enough space to put everything and a clever mirror with a wardrobe on the reverse. The bathroom was clean and toiletries smelt divine! Delicious biscuits – short bread and chocolate chip cookies were among the other delights on offer. Everything was very clean and the huge bed very comfortable.
The hotel is a very short walk away from the beach and busy centre of Brighton all easily accessed on foot. Breakfast was yummy and plenty of it. All cooked to order as well using local produce. We sampled the cocktails and played chess in the comfortable lounge area of the hotel. We asked about the best place for a curry and following a recommendation from a member of staff, they even booked the Restaurant for us, drew directions on a map for good pubs to visit on the way as well as the Restaurant.
On check out we were able to leave our bags at the hotel while we spent the day in Brighton. The owner, Kerry called a taxi for us and carried our bags to the taxi for us. Nothing seemed to be too much of an ask for anyone over our two night stay for any member of staff. They are all very attentive, professional, yet warm and friendly.
Overall this is a lovely hotel, beautifully decorated throughout and we will be staying there next time we go to Brighton.
“Fantastic Boutique Hotel Brighton”
Blanch House is a superb boutique hotel near the sea front in Kemp Town. The street may look a little shabby chic but the hotel is top class.
Very friendly welcome by the owner Kerry who was able to recommend some local restaurants for lunch.
The poppy room was very well presented, a good size for a couple staying a few days.
Complementary tea and coffee facilities included home made biscuits which were not only delicious but a very thoughtful touch.
The shower room was a little small but well proportioned and the aromatherapy toiletries were great.
We slept well but be warned the sea gulls are very loud if you sleep with the window open.
Fantastic breakfast options including continental buffet and hot breakfast to order. We ordered the salmon and scrambled eggs and the vegetarian breakfast; both delicious.
I would recommend the hotel to anyone staying in Brighton and we will definitely be returning for another stay.
“A very warm welcome and fantastic service!”
My boyfriend and I stayed overnight here and had a truly brilliant time! My mum booked us in as a graduation gift, and having only seen the photos on the website, I wasn’t totally sure what to expect. But as soon as we arrived we were given the warmest welcome by Jeremy, who was a very kind, friendly host.
The Harlequin Room was stunning, with a beautiful chandelier, huge and comfy bed, and old fashioned wardrobe, everything was the best quality, clean, and beautifully presented. The tin of home-made biscuits were a particularly nice touch!
The staff were all very friendly and happy to accommodate us in any way possible. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone who wishes to stay in a beautiful, romantic, indulgent hotel! Thank you Blanch House for a truly special stay!
“A Week Day Stay”
I loved this little hotel, situated near the seafront in Kemp Town – where all the good bars are. Cosy, friendly, clean and well-run. The parking permit was very useful – only £10 for 24 hrs. The room was small but had loads of style – and biscuits.
“Such a welcoming and fabulous place”
Nothing was too much trouble, the staff were fantastic, the room was lovely, the breakfast was cooked to order, perfect location – we will be back! You just need to be aware that you need to purchase a parking permit which adds £10/per night.
I stayed here with a friend for one night midweek in July. We were really impressed by the service throughout our stay.
On arrival we were a little early but the staff were welcoming and helpful giving us a parking permit and advising what was good to do in Brighton (this being our first stay here). Later on we checked in and found our room to be spotlessly clean and well presented. We had the smallest room in the hotel but found this good value. There were tea and coffee making facilities, complimentary home made biscuits and a hair dryer to use. Wifi was free and fast. We used the hotel bar which was pleasant although cocktails slightly pricey. Our room was quiet (apart from the seagulls!).
Breakfast the next day was delicious: a small continental option but also cooked breakfast to order. Staff were really friends and helpful throughout the stay.
Overall a really great hotel and we would definitely stay again!
“Fab Weekend Break at Blanch House in Brighton”
Fab art deco Legacia room, with home made cookies and bottled water offered upon arrival.
A warm welcome by all, particularly the owner Kerry. Breakfast was excellent with home made jam, marmalade and lemon curd. And, despite no car park, plenty of car parking spaces and easy to buy parking ticket.
Lovely Champagne bar with cocktails galore. Great location in Kemp Town with many great bars and restaurants within walking distance and in sight of the beach.
Will definitely return and would recommend for couples. Outstanding hospitality which makes all the difference.
“Stayed for the Weekend”
Lovely place to stay and made very welcome. Breakfast was tasty and filling with choice of cooked foods. Able to buy a parking ticket from the hotel so that you can park in the toads which is a lot cheaper than NCP parking. Lovely themed rooms.
“Wonderful Boutique Hotel”
We loved our stay at Blanch House. It is well situated, beautifully decorated and cosy. Most of all, the staff are brilliant (nothing is too much trouble). The breakfasts were absolutely brilliant and, tasty home made biscuits in the room.
Have had breakfasts all over UK, Europe and USA and we would rate our vegetarian as in the top 3 best start of the day meals.
Our room was stylish, comfortable and quiet. Staff are very friendly and helpful. A good location within easy distance of shops pubs and restaurants.
We booked the beautiful Renaissance room for two nights to celebrate out first wedding anniversary. We hoped it would be special and we were not disappointed!
We were greeted by Charlotte, who booked us in, sorted out our parking permits, showed us to our room and also helped us out choosing where to eat and drink during our stay. The little “extras” in the rooms such as delicious home made shortbread, soft bathrobes, exquisite toiletries and a full size hair dryer, on top of standard tea and coffee facilities, TV and free wifi, really added an extra luxury factor we had longed for.
The bedroom and communal rooms were tastefully decorated in keeping with the building and clean and well cared for. The breakfasts are simply delicious and again the homemade conserves added to the experience.
Kerry and his staff were friendly, helpful and could not do enough to help. Would I recommend this hotel? Definitely 100% and we will be revisiting this little gem in the future – a wonderful boutique hotel.
“Cosy and Friendly”
Blanch House is a small but extremely cosy hotel and the staff and management are all extremely helpful and friendly.
An absolutely wonderful breakfast was included in the price, cooked when ordered, large and very fresh.
Our room was small but very clean and comfortable and there was home baked cookies and tea.
In all a very pleasant experience..!!
We will definitely come back..!
On arrival we were given a choice of rooms, all individually styled. We chose Legacia, a spacious room with a good sized bathroom and roll top bath.. A lot of effort and thought is evident in the unique decor, which makes a refreshing change from the usual bland corporate hotel.
The owner and staff were extremely friendly, welcoming and professional and really went the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable. Blanch House is in a great location close to the seafront and the Lanes.
Breakfast was good with plenty of choice and some interesting extras. Even the background music was carefully chosen to suit all tastes.
A lovely hotel where guest comfort and satisfaction is clearly a priority. Hope to return one day.
We stayed for one night in this stylish boutique hotel. The welcome was first class and we were immediately made to feel that we were important guests. The room was great (Harlequin). There was plenty of advice on where to eat and what to do.
“Stunning Stay Yet Again…”
We stayed in the Legacia this time as we were celebrating our anniversary. Our fifth time back at Blanch house and what another superb stay. The room didn’t disappoint and the roll top bath was lovely. The service was second to none as usual. Siony and the other staff were fabulous. Breakfast was lush as usual. Always wonderful and attentive service.
See you soon Kerry and the gang, we will be back shortly.
“Beautiful Boutique Hotel”
My friend and I have just returned from a girls weekend in Brighton. I booked Blanch House after reading other reviews and thought the hotel looked quirky and fun.
We were not disappointed , we were made to feel very welcome as soon as we arrived and it felt like we were visiting friends .
We were in the Moroccan room which was really cool. Only downside was the noisy sea gulls right outside the window which of course wasn’t the hotels fault .
The staff were all very friendly and gave us some great recommendations for bars and restaurants. Breakfast was lovely and the staff were very attentive.
“So good we’re back for more”
We stayed here for a romantic getaway in December last year in the Perrier Jouet Room. The hotel was absolutely lovely and the room was beautifully prepared with flowers, Champagne and an afternoon tea. We were made so welcome throughout our stay and have been waiting for an opportunity to come back ever since.
Luckily that time has now arrived and we are going back this week for a summer break and to celebrate our engagement…
Some friends had a wedding here and it was perfect, the staff were friendly and helpful, guiding us on what to do when we had some spare time. The food was good which we really enjoyed and will be booking a weekend away here soon.
Thank you to all the staff.
Last week we stayed for 3 nights at Blanch House, the welcome on arrival seemed as if they were genuinely happy to see us. Our room and bathroom were small but fine for a 3 night stay. Breakfast was better than at some bigger hotels we’ve stayed in with more choice than anyone could hope for. The staff were all very friendly and couldn’t do enough to help with whatever we asked.
Our thanks to Kerry, Josie and the guy with the perfectly trimmed moustache (who helped out serving breakfasts) , for a very nice short stay
My wife and I were recently married at blanch house. We chose Blanch House as we were looking to have an intimate wedding in a venue that suited our personalities. The hotel was beautifully decorated and each room had its own theme and charm.
We booked the hotel exclusively for our wedding weekend and housed many of our family and friends at the hotel. All our guests who stayed were comfortable and very impressed by the breakfasts.
The wedding day itself went perfectly and we managed to have pictures on the beach in the glorious sunshine.
Each member of staff made us feel like we were at home. Everyone at Blanch House was friendly and attentive to all of our wedding guests. We cannot thank them enough for their help!
My wife and I cannot wait to come and stay at the hotel again.
“Wonderful Hotel and Staff”
My husband and I stayed for 2 nights in mid May. All the staff were welcoming and helpful. We stayed in the Harlequin room. We found the bed to be very comfortable (we both have back issues) and the room was spotless. The breakfasts were excellent.
We arrived early and as our room was not quite ready, Kerry graciously provided tea that we enjoyed in the lounge.
We would definitely stay here again
“Great Location for Beach and Shopping”
Service at Blanch House was excellent. Staff really attentive and friendly. The rooms are comfortable and stylish. Breakfast is delicious with lots of choices.
Location: beach and promenade, just across the road. Shopping facilities, around the corner (2 minutes’ walking distance).
Had the whole hotel to ourselves for one day for wedding celebration. Wedding meal lovely.
Over all, an excellent base for visiting the Brighton area.
Just attended a wedding and reception at Blanch House over the weekend, all I can say is WOW.
First of all Kerry and staff are amazing, they are so friendly and can’t do enough for guests.
The wedding breakfast (dinner) was lovely, I had the braised neck of lamb and it was absolutely delicious. The evening reception was so much fun thanks to the hard working staff at this hotel and of course their great selection of drinks.
This alone would have made the wedding perfect but to top it all off the hotel is beautiful, the rooms all have their own unique style with the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever slept in. The only issue I would have is the noise of the seagulls in the morning, however, this is to be expected from a hotel so close to the seafront and simply closing the window reduced the noise significantly.
I loved every minute of my stay there as did all the guests that attended the wedding and I would recommend this hotel to anyone either looking for a wedding venue or just a nice place to stay in Brighton that is close to the beach and the city centre.
From the warm greeting on arrival, to the home made biscuits in the room, most comfortable bed, ending in a most excellent breakfast; fantastic stay.
Perfect location, close to the front and easy walk to the Lanes, lots of restaurants nearby, Kemp town seems to be on the up!
“Different From Other Brighton Establishments”
We were met with a very friendly welcome on arrival and were informed that we had been upgraded to the lovely Moroccan room instead of the one we had earlier booked. We were even offered a 2-hour delayed check-out free of cost. These friendly gestures really impressed us a lot! The Wi-Fi is a bit slow but guests are encouraged to sit comfortably in the lounge, where the signal is stronger, while internet surfing. Have not seen other Brighton establishments employ so many staff-members and they are all lovely, warm and helpful.
The breakfast was filling and plentiful, with many options like Salmon, Full English, Pancakes along with Toast, Croissants, fruit salad etc….
Would love to return!
“Blanch House As Good As Ever!”
This was our second stay in the last couple of years and Blanch House is just as welcoming as ever. Lovely room – we stayed in the Morrocan – wonderful breakfast and just far enough out of the centre for an easy walk in but a quiet night. Excellent B&B
“An Absolutely Lovely Hotel”
We had booked one of the ‘cosy’ rooms and on arrival we were upgraded to a bigger room called Legacia. Which was a nice surprise. What a beautiful room with a huge bed. We were made to feel welcome and it seemed that nothing was too much trouble.
Blanch House is a stones throw from the seafront and close to the main amenities that Brighton has to offer.
The breakfast was very good indeed. Quality food well cooked and presented.
I’m struggling to find anything negative to say….
If we return to Brighton we’ll definitely stay at the Blanch House again.
The staff at Blanch House make the place what it is, a friendly boutique hotel. We booked quite last minute and were lucky to get a room considering we were booking the number one on trip advisor!
We had the galaxy room right at the very top of the hotel, five flights of stairs kept us fit. Just be aware that there is no lift if stairs are a problem with you. The room was fabulous, huge and with a great bathroom.
We booked the romance package including prosecco, flowers and cream tea. The price difference is not much different to providing those things yourself but nice to have them waiting there when you arrive. Breakfast was included in the tariff and very nice.
The only downside we could find to this hotel was the parking. We purchased two 24 hour parking permits at 9 pounds fifty each which gives you a zone to park within. We had to park several streets away and even when we tried to move the car had no better luck. There are double yellow lines outside the door that you can park quickly on to unload your bags but parking in the area is a bit of a nightmare.
Blanch house is in a fabulous location , within easy walking distance to all the sights of Brighton and the warm and friendly staff will make your stay.
“Small and Very Friendly”
A small boutique hotel that works very hard to please. Being small it tries to pack in a lot of quality and excellent service. We stayed as a couple for one night in the Poppy room – excellent decor and furnishings and the bed was very comfortable indeed. Shower room and toilet small but not cramped – and very clean. The outlook over the Sidewinder Pub is not great but not offensive. The gulls mentioned in other reviews are a fact of life at the seaside – just another flavour of Brighton to enjoy.
The pre-visit call from the hotel is a nice touch – the benefit of having a small number of incoming clients. The welcome is very warm and genuine and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast was extremely good but – and this is one of only two criticisms of the stay – was rather slow in arriving. The other is the wifi – please consider using wifi range extenders. Kerry the owner/manager was very friendly and approachable and eager to be of assistance.
Overall impressions – warmth and professionalism of the staff, quality of the product.
“We Liked This!”
This hotel has great staff, who really are helpful, friendly and polite. Special mention for Trayan, who took the time to help us with holiday destinations in Bulgaria during breakfast. When we come back to Brighton we’d very happily stay here again. Thank you – Victoria and Rob
Arrived with high expectations on the basis of previous positive reviews to find the plaudits were well deserved. Started well finding a parking space immediately outside the hotel, and things only got better.
The Perrier Jouet room was delightfully decorated and furnished, and very comfortable too. Kerry was welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. Left the next day after a fantastic breakfast wishing we had booked for more than one night.
Would certainly return here next time we are staying in Brighton.
We enjoyed a two night stay in the Moroccan room at Blanch House. The decor is lovely especially all the lovely lights.
Experienced a warm welcome, home made biscuits much appreciated after our journey. Hotel location close to sea front, including the Brighton Eye, well worth a trip to see the lovely views of Brighton. Restaurants recommended for evening meals, provided with a map of the area. Excellent breakfasts, home made muesli delicious. Only negative the noisy seagulls but we were at the seaside!!
Would make a return visit.
“Elegance, Style and Fantastic Friendly Service”
Stayed here 5-7 June 2015 based largely on the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Great location with an easy walk to all the sights and attractions.
Wonderful staff, friendly helpful, polite. Kerry, one of the joint owners, was there on our first evening and should be rightly proud of his establishment. We stayed in the Legacia room, art deco style (which we love) with genuine period furniture and it was beautiful, comfortable and with a sea view. The breakfast was lovely too, understated like much of this establishment. Highly recommended.
“Smart, Small, Special Hotel with Great Service”
A smart place to stay. We were lucky to arrive with a car space outside “waiting” for us and a warm greeting from Kerry. With a quick peek at our lovely, well decorated and clean room, a visit to the well stocked bar we went out to eat.
Breakfast in the morning was tasty with helpful service followed by a smooth check out. All very nice, no complaints and we’d stay here again if we ever need an overnight stay in Brighton again.
We stayed three nights at the Blanch House in Brighton and were very pleased with the location and quality of the hotel. The owner/manager Kerry was very helpful with recommendations and walking instructions. The breakfast selection was terrific and the home made granola bars were especially delicious.
We were lucky to be in Brighton during the Fringe Festival which was a terrific event.
“Lovely Stay in Good Location”
My wife and I really enjoyed our single night stay here during the February half term holiday. The hotel is well located close to the seafront. We were lucky with parking but I can imagine that it’s an issue for all Brighton hotels. You can buy parking permits from reception that allow you to use residents on street parking.
The room was small but very well done out. Kerry, the owner, was exceptionally helpful and welcoming. We were in Brighton for a concert at the Concorde 2 venue and this hotel is ideally located a few streets away.
Can’t recommend it highly enough.
“Attention to Detail”
I can see why this is number one in Brighton. The location is great, just off St James’s Street with restaurants and bars, a minute from the sea, but the hotel itself is on a quiet side street.
Loved the breakfast room with quiet show tunes playing, great breakfast of perfectly poached eggs, fresh croissants, freshly made fruit salad. You get a chilled bottle of water when you check in which is probably Brighton tap but appreciated anyway.
The welcome is warm, someone telephoned me the day of arrival which might have been to check I was actually turning up but was a nice touch anyway. He said the room was small, which it was, but I had been told. I was on my own anyway but it was a double and might have been a crush for two. The usual tea and coffee making facilities are a cut above, with fresh coffee bag rather than usual sachets, although only four mini milks which I had in one cup (not enough if we were two). Plus lovely shortbread biscuits.
I slept well- comfy bed and pillows. I heard people coming and going but judging by the people in the breakfast room this appeals to well heeled mature couples and so on who are unlikely to disturb the peace.
The decor is modern charming boutique, and it works. Free wi fi, nice desk overlooking houses at the back, the usual jenga of cushions on the bed (what do you do with them, chuck them on the floor?). Separate small loo/washbasin and shower room.
Only semi serious niggle, the water could have been hotter for full comfort. All the soaps and so on are in dispensers, which is usually Ok but a couple of mine stuck. It’s worth mentioning these things because with a few small changes this would have been really perfect, and I’m not talking about the size of room, they managed to put a small clothes hanging area plus two other rooms in a small space so it was used well.
On street parking with a permit £9.50 but I couldn’t see a spare place for many streets around, but that’s what you get for being in the centre of things. Posh and not cheap hotel bar with champagne and cocktails and would have had a couple if I had been with my partner and not here for work.
“What an Amazing Find”
From the moment we stepped in the door and left the following day, The staff were so helpful – nothing was too much trouble and all delivered with a smile – would go back again any time. Even the chilled Brighton water tasted good
“Lovely Hotel, Great Location”
We stayed at Blanch House for our mini moon, in the Legacia room. The hotel is in a lovely spot in Kemp Town, a ten minute walk from the middle of town and just up the street from the sea (you get a side sea view from Legacia.)
We were able to park almost outside and get 24 hour permits from the hotel (you can put more than one in the car at a time so you don’t have to keep going back.)
Kerry and his team are very friendly and helpful, and will do anything they can to make your stay more enjoyable. Breakfast was freshly cooked to order and very tasty.
I would definitely go back.
“Brighton Fringe Weekend”
I chose this hotel for my husband and I as it was very convenient for a Fringe event.
Lots of bars with live music and interesting restaurants a very short walk away although Atlingworth Street itself is very quiet.
The management were exceptionally friendly and helpful emailing and phoning ahead to check if we needed anything for our stay.
Our room was Galaxy which we loved as it was very spacious, both the bedroom and bathroom. Good quality coffee and tea bags and cookies in the room. We had a sideways view of the sea from our room which was an unexpected bonus !
Breakfast was excellent and I had porridge with banana and cinnamon, my husband the Full English. They had soya milk which was great and a lovely array of fresh fruit.
The preserves were of good quality. The champagne bar looked very pretty all candlelit in the evening. We paid for a parking permit for the area around the hotel and managed to park without too much trouble even though it was a Bank holiday weekend.
We will return mainly because of the very friendly welcome.
“Unbeatable Service, Unrivalled Attention to Detail”
We stayed for two nights at Blanch House and were blown away from the exceptional level of service from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. The staff couldn’t do enough for us!
Well designed rooms, fantastic decor and and an excellent city location all add to the many other reasons why you should stop searching for anywhere else to stay in Brighton and book with Blanch House!!
We’ll definitely be revisiting Kerry and his team again for a future stay, thank you again for a relaxing stay!
“Perfect Place for a Birthday Celebration”
We stayed here for two nights to celebrate my birthday. Kerry and his team were professional, friendly and very helpful. The hotel itself is very well maintained with excellent details, such as lovely fresh flowers and a well stocked bar, which we made good use of.
The breakfasts were excellent and quality home cooked extras such as the cookies in the rooms just made the stay a joy. Highly recommended.
I booked Blanch House for my husband’s surprise 50th birthday party- the attention to detail, help with planning and finally service delivery were fantastic from start to finish. All our guests were impressed with the care and attention they were given by the staff from the late night dancing waitress down to the cheery smile serving a yummy breakfast so we have had an amazing weekend – A huge THANK YOU to Kerry and his lovely team.
“Great Base for City Break”
My partner and I stayed at Blanch house for 2 nights. The team at blanch house are extremely friendly, providing us with a free Brighton guide and some suggestions for dining which were great.
Our room and all communal areas were very well presented and immaculately clean. Very good breakfast and cookies and shortcake in the room. Great location in walking distance to the beach, pier and shopping areas. I would have no hesitation in recommending this establishment.
A wonderful place! The staff were so friendly and our room, Peony, was lovely. An excellent veggie breakfast to wake up to too. Highly recommended and reasonable rates and even though we didn’t use the bar it looked great too.
“Excellent Stay, Great Breakfast, Polite and Helpful Hosts”
Stayed only one night at Blanch House, but it was wonderful. Had a lovely welcome from the girl at the front desk, who was kind enough to help us to our rooms. I stayed in the Snow-themed room (I can’t remember the name, but it has “snow” in it!). Lovely, well-decorated, clean, great bathroom with all the necessary amenities. Downstairs front room is lovely, great wi-fi, and you can purchase the jams/jellies they serve there! Yum!
Host/owner Kerry got us off to a good start with a lovely breakfast (Scottish pancakes, must try them if you have not) and great advice about what to see where. It’s an easy walk to the waterfront area and to Royal Pavilion/Brighton Museum.
Too bad we were only here for a day…could have stayed a week!
“Nothing Too Much Trouble”
We stayed here for 2 nights. The B&B was very nice, clean and breakfast was excellent with a lot of choice. The staff were amazing, nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely stay here again but in a bigger room next time as ours was very small (although we knew in advance it would be small)
“Amazing, Could Not Fault It”
We stayed at this hotel for our Mini-moon for a couple of days after our wedding. From the moment we arrived we could not have been happier with the hotel. Our room was upgraded and the room itself was beautiful.
The staff are friendly but not intrusive and the location is also great as it is close enough to the centre to access easily and far enough away to not hear the noise from the bars etc.
All in all the hotel provided just what we needed for a couple of days away. We will certainly be returning. Thank you very much
“Another Wonderful Stay”
We are regulars at this town house hotel and for us it’s like home from home. Kerry and Jeremy are excellent owners and all their staff are simply brilliant. You can rely on high standards of service, cleanliness and comfort throughout. Our latest stay was during the Brighton Marathon and as usual all the runners and their spouses were well catered for and looked after. We will back again next year and if not sooner should we be visiting Brighton again. Thanks everyone – you did us all proud.
“Perfect for a Weekend Break”
We chose Blanch House because of the superb Trip Advisor reviews. We didn’t want a large chain hotel with impersonal service and it was perfect for us. We were made to feel welcome by all the staff and the service was friendly and efficient. The room, Harlequin was dramatic, clean & very comfortable. We slept amazingly well with no noise at all to be heard from other rooms or guests. The breakfast was amazing & generous in size. We particularly loved the home made lemon curd with our croissants and we were unable to eat lunch out on both days of our stay as we were too full.
We will return to Blanch House. Thank you.
“Right at Home with a Touch of Elegance”
We had a two night stay my fiancé and I. We were greeted at the door and personally shown to our rooms and shown all the bits and bobs. We stayed in the “Alice” room which we loved. The staff were very polite and always helpful. Lovely location next to the water and a stroll away from the pier. Complimentary breakfast was also lovely. A+
“Another Great Experience”
This is my third visit to Blanch House and once again not disappointed at all. This B&B is head and shoulders above anywhere else. Don’t even consider booking an alternative.
A 3 night stay, perfect small double for one, a bath and shower, quiet and cosy. The cocktail lounge is a lovely additional benefit for either daytime or evening relaxation.
Breakfast is freshly cooked and well worth the wait. An eclectic choice of music accompanies your breakfast!
The feature of this top quality accommodation is the staff, from Kerry one of the co-owners, to Josie and another lovely engaging lady with the green hair! You know who you are!
I am looking forward to my next stay. My only problem is that with all these wonderful reviews, I have to book earlier and earlier to get in!
Well done Blanch House!
Cannot express just how amazing our stay was…. Room was spotless, cosy and comfortable … Not a speck of dust. Tea/coffee and home made shortbread in room …. Staff were simply excellent. Could teach other establishments an awful lot. Superb breakfast!! Will most definitely be returning soon …. Well done guys …first time in a while my fiancée hasn’t moaned even once and has told all who listen to come and stay.
“April 21st and 22nd”
Lovely welcome shown to our room complete with beautiful flowers ,bubbly and yummy cream tea . Our room was clean , comfortable and cosy what more could you ask for thank you Kerry and all the other lovely staff will definitely recommend to all my friends.
Very well serviced hotel.The staff are excellent. Nice relaxing stayed. The sleep was brilliant on great mattresses. No noise whatsoever. Check-in and out was fast and very polite. Can’t wait to to come back here again. I highly recommend
“Fabulous Seaside Boutique Hotel”
We spent a wonderful weekend at Blanch House, it is a very tasteful, friendly and comfortable hotel. It’s in a great location, just up from the seafront and close to The Lanes, the pier and main attractions. The owners were perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them, we had coffee and beautiful shortcake biscuits when we arrived, a lovely selection of teas and coffees in the room together with more home made biscuits.
There is a real attention to detail, beautiful fresh flowers in the entrance and lounge which smelt amazing, the breakfast was brilliant and included home made jams and lemon curd at breakfast. I participated in the Brighton Marathon and our hosts treated all participants and supporters to a glass of bubbly and nibbles to celebrate- we were made to feel really special.
Thank you for such a memorable weekend!
PERFECT We were greeted on arrival shown to our room , which was warm cosy and immaculate . Without a doubt this is a great friendly and comfortable Hotel With a great choice of breakfast too. Staff were very friendly cheerful and helpful.
Will stay here again
“Different Boutique Style”
OK – the room was described as cosy – and it was small, but perfectly formed. Staff are indeed both knowledgeable and very friendly. The bar is inviting, and the breakfast well put together. Parking is a bind – but hey, it is Brighton, and their rates are cheaper than NCP! Liked it, and would return.
“A Lovely Baby Moon”
We came to Brighton for a nice little break before our baby is due. The staff at Blanch House are excellent they are polite friendly and helpful we had the poppy room which was nice. They had tea making facilities and home made biscuits in the room. The only thing I would say is the sunlight came in a bit in the morning and woke me up perhaps some curtains rather than just a blind would be good. The bed was comfy and the manager even got me a third pillow which really helped me get comfortable. The breakfast was excellent I tried the pancakes with bacon I changed the banana for scrambled egg and I had maple syrup and I also had a full English and the home made muesli. It was all very tasty and locally sourced.
“Superb Hotel, Great Service, Excellent Stay”
I highly recommend Blanch House for those who wish to stay in a friendly, well run and very well serviced hotel. It is in Kemp Town on a quiet street which affords proximity to the buzz of Brighton without being amongst the teeming hordes.
Kerry (one of the owners) was extremely helpful in booking the room (Perrier Jouet which is worth indulging in). Breakfast service was flawless with good healthy options (my preferred) for those of us who wish to bypass the carb overload that a full english provides (though it is on the menu).
My wife and I stayed for a couple of nights and could have done with a few more.
“Perfect in Every Way”
We booked Blanch House after much research on Trip Advisor where it came out as Number 1!
It was to be our first visit to Brighton ( and definitely won’t be the last ) and , as it was a special birthday weekend, wanted somewhere a bit special.
After a long drive down we arrived at Blanch House, we had to go round the block a couple of times as the street was busy with nowhere to park. We spotted a space on the sea front so I was dropped off at the hotel to check in whilst my boyfriend bagged the space.
I was given a warm welcome and paid for our parking permits for the two days, £9.50 per 24 hrs. I took these to the car and we brought our bags to the hotel where we were shown up to our room on the 2nd floor The Harlequin. We were shown where everything was and given a map of Brighton also a little guide book. Breakfast times were explained and keys given.
The Harlequin room is a delight ! Very quirky and quite dark but lots of lovely touches. The huge bed is stacked with cushions. There’s lovely crystal wall lights & a chandelier over the foot of the bed. The backdrop of faux curtains at the head of the bed & the gorgeous harlequin checked curtains with their huge Pom Pom tie backs give the room a fabulous theatrical feel. The bathroom is very small & the corner shower very adequate but only room for one person at a time! Lovely white fluffy towels and bathrobes. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in with its beautiful white linen. The view from the window is the only down side to the room but then again how much time do you spend looking out of the window!
We popped into the delightful lounge for a drink before going out for dinner that evening and were served by another of the lovely staff. The bar is very well stocked with a good wine selection.
Breakfast the next morning is served in the pretty downstairs dining room. Croissants fruit juices, cereals, fruit and home made granola bars are set out buffet style and there is also a breakfast menu on the table. I opted for the home made muesli which was divine, followed by full English breakfast. Very fresh and tasty. Also on the menu were a veg breakfast option, eggs done any way you wanted, pancakes & smoked salmon & scrambled eggs. The usual tea coffee and toast were also on offer.
The staff were very attentive and Kerry one of the owners came round to each table and had a chat to everyone, finding out where we had been & making sure that everything was to our satisfaction.
We stayed at Blanch House for two nights and found it a really beautiful, friendly little gem. It’s situation is very good too as its a couple of hundred yards to the sea front one way and the same distance the other way to the busy St James Street where there are lots of restaurants bars shops etc. It isn’t too far to walk into the main area of Brighton,The Lanes etc. There is a pleasant walk along the seafront to The Marina one way or to Hove, the other way.
We loved every minute of our trip to Brighton & Blanch House and we will definitely be returning !
Thanks again Kerry and Team you were amazing !
“Lovely Place to Stay”
We loved this small boutique B&B. From even before we got there the customer service was brilliant. the rooms are lovely and the bar is great. Beds very comfortable and the breakfast was good too. Would definitely stay there again.
“Perfect Hotel, Lovely Staff”
We booked Blanch House for a one night getaway to recharge our batteries, after looking at other reviews we decided it looked like the perfect place, we were not disappointed and wished we could have stayed for longer.
Before we arrived Kerry, the owner called me to make sure that everything was OK and to enquire if there was anything he could do for us before we arrived. That was a classy touch and set the tone for the stay.
Upon arriving we were warmly greeted and given a few ideas about where to go in Brighton, what to do, what to see etc as well as a few pointers about our room and hotel. This was just enough for us to feel really comfortable. The location is pretty central to Brighton, a 10 minute walk along the seafront any you’re in the midst of all that Brighton has to offer.
The room we had booked (Alice) was exactly as described, very clean and quiet. Not much more you can ask of a hotel room really!
The breakfast was really nice and just enough to set me up for another trek around Brighton. The staff at breakfast were very good and the service was excellent.
All in all this was a pretty faultless stay in a wonderful little B&B / hotel. We would definitely stay again and would recommend it 100% to anyone who is looking to have a romantic break / getaway.
A big thank you to Kerry and his staff, keep up the great work and hopefully we’ll be back soon.
“A Little Luxury Close to the Centre of Brighton”
We really enjoyed our stay, the staff are all lovely and the owner has an eye for detail and goes the extra mile to make the hotel attractive and the guests feel welcome. Breakfast was wonderful, all freshly cooked with home made pastries, jam marmalade etc.
It is just a short walk from the Pier and all the restaurants, shopping etc. but is situated in a quiet street.
Parking is on the street and can get busy (as is most of Brighton), we were lucky and found a space very close by.
“Fantastic Customer Service, Cosy Room and Delicious Food”
As my partner and I were looking for places to stay during our short stay in Brighton we came across the Blanch House. We had a two night stay planned for a little R&R, shopping, beach walks and fine food and wine.
After a lengthly drive down to the south coast we pulled up outside the Blanch House, as I popped in to fetch some parking permits I was greeted by Kerry one of the owners. He was friendly, incredibly helpful and very professional, this instantly made my partner and I feel relaxed and ready for our mini break.
We had a clean cosy room with a comfy bed and a nice bathroom. It was just the right size for a two night stay. I could go on and on in this review as I feel the Blanch House deserves lots of praise!
The breakfast was delicious and the staff helpful. We will visit Blanch House again one day, you could go to another hotel in Brighton if you wished but if you want a kind, friendly welcome, outstanding customer service, a clean room and great food then this is the hotel for you.
We stayed here on Friday evening in the Galaxy room. It was the last available room and it had the whitest linen and towels. The staff were so welcoming and friendly Jeremy is adorable. The hotel decor was very tasteful and flowers we’re beautifully displayed in all the public areas. The breakfast was just perfect with lovely home made jams, hash browns etc .we will definitely return in the Summer.
“Wonderful Place to Stay in Brighton”
My husband and I stayed for a couple of nights this week at Blanch House and had a wonderful time. The hotel is luxurious, the bed was one of the most comfortable I’ve ever slept in and Kerry and his staff couldn’t do enough for us. The hotel’s location is brilliant, with a sea view (OK, side sea view!) and within five minutes of the pier and just a short walk to the Lanes. We stayed in the Galaxy room, slightly more expensive than the other rooms but worth it – as long as you’re fit enough to climb the stairs to the top!
We’ll definitely go back again.
“Opulence on the Coast”
Stayed at Blanch House during a two day business trip. The hotel was very well presented in a great location close to the beach and pier. Kerry and the staff were very welcoming and helpful.
Had a very relaxing stay in the Snowstorm room with it’s quirky snow globes and well thought out decoration. Very comfy bed, clean bathroom and all the mod cons you would want and hope for. B&B doesn’t suffice as a description. I couldn’t face a breakfast one day after a heavy night but Kerry was insistent I took a croissant with me before a long day ahead.
Next visit to Brighton I won’t look to book anywhere else.
“Lovely Hotel in Great Location”
We visited for two nights and stayed in the Orchid Room. The owner Kerry was really welcoming as a host and made an effort to speak to all guests at breakfast time.
The hotel in general is very clean and the decor stylish. It’s a 10 minute walk into the city and the pier is 5 minutes away. Couldn’t ask for a better location. The breakfasts were really tasty and the waiting staff helpful.
We will definitely be visiting again!
“Lovely Hotel and Staff”
The room was full of character and the bed was very soft and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious, and the staff were about as friendly as you could hope for. We loved our stay and will certainly come back.
My daughter and I stayed here for three nights. It was a perfect location. The guest house is beautifully decorated. We stayed in the smallest room, but it was just right for the two of us. The breakfasts are amazing! Would definitely come again.
We were given a night at Blanch House and what a treat it was. The welcome from the owner was very warm, our room was good , clean and bright.The hotel ‘s location made it easy to visit all areas of Brighton. There is a great little well stocked bar area. The breakfast was excellent.
Overall It was the attention to detail which impressed us most. Each member of staff could not have been more helpful. We are so glad to have found Blanch House, we will certainly return.
Nice little hotel just to the east of central Brighton in Kemp Town. Great price, owners couldn’t have been nicer, clean and tidy, nice breakfast, and a location which was great though I wouldn’t have considered it usually.
We ate Thai at Sawadee nearby which was excellent, and drank at the Black Dove, also excellent and all Within 5 minutes walk.
“Memorable for All of the Right Reasons”
We booked the hotel to bring together work team members from around the world for a two day meeting.
The rooms were unique and clean, warm and majestic. Our food was delicious from breakfast all the way through.
We challenged the team by telling them one of our colleagues had a birthday that day… They mustered up a celebration out of nowhere and couldn’t do enough for us. They went above and beyond in every aspect and made our two day meeting very special.
I look forward to going back with friends for a weekend. Thank you Kerry and co. genuinely!
“Small But Perfectly Formed”
My husband and I went for a couple of days away in March. Blanch House is located in Kemp Town – a real mix of regency terraces and more contemporary housing; also lots of individual shops and great pubs, and within easy walking distance of the sea front, pavilion etc.
The staff and proprietors were great – nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast also was excellent – lots of choice. Although we had a ‘superior’ double we a bit disappointed with the size, however as we’d got such a good deal on the room rate we couldn’t really grumble and the king size bed was very comfy. The decor was very individual and there was coffee, tea and home made shortbread in the room.
If we went to Brighton again we’d certainly stay here.
“Waiting for Grandson”
I decided to stay at Blanch House after browsing the net and then speaking to one of the owners on the telephone. I felt I would be made very welcome. I was not disappointed.
My grandson was due to be born in the Royal Sussex hospital the day after my 70th birthday, which I celebrated in Brighton with my family, and the parents-to-be wanted me to stay on nearby.
The staff made me feel that nothing was too much trouble, and were all friendly without being intrusive. The breakfasts were the best and most delicious I have had anywhere. There is a comprehensive menu catering for all tastes, so one could have something different every day.
I was told any visitors I wished to bring into the hotel would be welcomed.The bar area was comfortable and looked inviting. I didn’t have that opportunity, but I intend to stay again and will take advantage of this. Also the Light Bites on offer. I had only booked for 2 nights, but stayed on for another 2, transferring to a different room. My rooms were small, but delightful, clean and had everything I could possibly want.
The beds were extremely comfortable with no shortage of pillows, which I have often found a problem. The en suites excellent. The cookies and shortbread replenished every day delicious. I can’t recommend this hotel and its staff highly enough. I look forward to a return stay.
Arrived on the Friday and the lady at the front desk was truly lovely and polite. I’ve brought my mum here for her birthday weekend and it was the best choice I made for a hotel.
The breakfast was out of this world and we both ate our selves full to the brim. This will definitely be our number 1 place to come again when we visit Brighton in the future. Bed is comfy, room is lovely and quaint…. We just can not fault the hotel at all.
Thank you for a lovely warm stay and we don’t look forward to leaving lol. Your guest house should be a 10*
“Well Deserved Reputation”
A nicely furnished hotel, kept meticulously clean, with very welcoming staff. Inclusive breakfast is excellent, hot food made to order, making the overall package very good value.
Great location, a few minutes walk into town centre, or just round the corner and you are into the Kemptown area with all its shops & bars.
if you’re only in Brighton for a night or two, the smaller “cosy” rooms are perfect; if you’ve got luggage for a few more nights and want to unpack a bit then you’ll probably be better off trying one of the bigger rooms.
“A Lovely Place”
Very warm, friendly and attentive staff.
Parking was no real issue as there was plenty of permit parking near by. Room was clean and well presented. Although no view of the sea it was only a short walk.
Great romantic short break. Would highly recommend
“A Brilliant Weekend!”
Blanch House is simply brilliant. We were treated like royalty. There was a quiet composure about the staff and hotel that shouted quality. The room was perfect and as described. We were only a 10 minute walk from the centre of Brighton. The breakfast was fabulous. I would and have recommended the hotel to friends.
Simply perfect. I can’t wait to book another trip away.

“Outstanding Experience From the Moment We Stepped Through the Door”
We had planned a night away in Brighton to celebrate my partner’s birthday. It was mid week so maybe we were lucky that the hotel was quieter than the weekend’s but we were upgraded to the Perrier Jouet suite which was a wonderful surprise.
The rooms are very individual which make them feel special as well as excellent quality sheets and towels and gorgeous smelling toiletries. We also enjoyed one of the most delicious breakfasts ever.
I left something behind and emailed the hotel who put it in the post straight away. The staff were incredibly courteous and helpful. I can’t imagine staying anywhere else when I visit Brighton.
“Small, Elegant Hotel”
Ideally placed for the centre of Brighton, this is a small well appointed hotel. Each room is decorated in a different style. The bed was very comfortable and the area quiet so we slept very well. The room we were in, Poppy, was small and the shower room also small, but quite adequate for our needs.
There was a bar on the ground floor where you could sit and have drinks or tea/coffee and this was a good feature. The breakfast was excellent, freshly cooked and the home made jams and marmalade were fresh and full of zest, really tasty. The owners try and make you feel as at home as possible.
There is no parking which could be a bind but this seems to be the position all over Brighton for smaller hotels. One can get a permit from the hotel by the day and then you have to find a spot in the right zone.
Plenty of places to eat and things to look at well within walking distance..The Ginger Dog restaurant about 10 minutes walk away served us a really good dinner.
“Number 1 For a Reason”
If you’re wondering how this hotel has managed to maintain such high reviews – just go and stay a night. From the moment we rang the door bell they couldn’t do enough for us, taking our bags whilst drawing a map for parking.
Our room was cosy but immaculate and the facilities were fantastic with an attractive and well-stocked bar area, together with a bright and spacious breakfast room.
The staff are local and knowledgeable, knowing when to to engage with you and when not to. Breakfast was mouth-watering and served with a smile, really setting you up for the day.
A top selling point for this hotel is obviously its location, the sea is seconds from your door and from our limited time there it was clear some of the best bars/restaurants are all within walking distance.
Stayed here last weekend for a trip with my daughter, a friend and her daughter. Lovely lovely staff, really nice rooms and brilliant breakfasts. Great location in Kemp Town and very close to the beach, which was wonderful. Recommended.
“Amazing Birthday Weekend”
This was my first time to Brighton and since it was my birthday weekend, decided to splash out on a nice Hotel. We were not disappointed with Blanch House. It is found off a side street just behind the beach. There is ample parking all within easy walking distance of the hotel.
We stayed in the Legacia Room and it was furnished and designed beautifully. The room was equipped with tea/ coffee making facilities. We were also provided with lovely homemade shortbread biscuits. Toiletries in the bathroom were a bit sparse. I am pretty sure if we asked the hosts for anything, they would have been more than happy to oblige.
My fiance had arranged a surprise for me so that when I arrived, candles were lit, a bath had been run, champagne was on ice and the bed was covered in rose petals! The hotel very kindly helped him arrange all of this without me knowing. I was really touched by the romantic gesture.The breakfast was nice. I had a full English one day and the vegetarian variation the next. I think it is easy to confuse the hotel with a 5 star because of the impeccable service, decor and price of the room (ours was £195.00 per night), so actually, in hindsight with it being a 3 star, it does exceed expectations.
We had a load of fun in Brighton itself. Go Carting on Saturday morning, followed by a walk around the Laines and to the Royal Pavilion. There is so much to see and do around Brighton we were never bored! On the Sunday we spent some time by the beach and paid a visit to the Oceanarium. We spent time in various bars in the area both nights – eye opening, friendly and entertaining. Brighton has a great vibe and I would definitely come again!
I didnt get the names of the receptionist/ hosts for the weekend but I have to say they are a real credit to the hotel. They are welcoming and so accommodating. They make you feel as if no request is too big for them.
Stayed one night in this hotel and was a great stay from start to finish. Receptionist was very friendly and helpful with advising the best places to park and providing a map. Our room, Sakura which is one of their smallest was excellent, very comfortable and was plenty of room for a few nights stay. Breakfast was excellent and Kerry, the owner, was very friendly ensuring we has everything we needed. Would return.
We stayed in Perrier Jouet which was a lovely, comfortable room full of character.
The staff were great, genuinely helpful and friendly. Lauren on reception welcomed us, Josie served a great breakfast with a smile and the owner Kerry went out of his way to make us comfortable.
We would really recommend Blanch House, if only Derby County had won it would have been perfect.
“Amazing Customer Service”
We found this hotel via trip advisor and the reviews were brilliant. We weren’t disappointed, the customer service was second to none and the breakfast is out of this world. Room was beautiful (Legacia room) and had everything you needed. I made a special request to NOT have feather pillows and duvet and Kerry (the owner) called me to let me know that this had been done for us. Can’t recommend this hotel strongly enough.
“What a Welcome”
I had to unexpectedly stay in Brighton – late booking and even later arrival. I made a total hash of finding the hotel (not that it’s difficult to find) and Kerry (the owner) was out on the street looking for me – how sweet is that. I hate staying away on my own but was made to feel very welcome and sat in the bar chatting for a couple of hours with Kerry and some of his other guests rather that hiding in my room. The room was super cosy and the bed far too comfy.
I woke up to beautiful blue skies and could hardly be closer to the sea if I slept on the beach.

“Friendly and Clean Home from Home”
We stayed in the Harlequin Room but peeked in a couple of others and it seems just the décor changes-the amenities look pretty similar. Friendly welcome-cosy and clean room-top breakfast. We had to allow a couple of minutes for the hot water to get through in the shower but the owner did warn us about that.
30 seconds to the seafront, 10 minutes to ‘The Lanes’ we will stay here again for sure.
We stayed at Blanch House for the half marathon. We booked into the Poppy room which was absolutely lovely. Nice size, really comfy bed and demolished the homemade biscuits.
Without a doubt the owners and employees make Blanch House. Nothing is too much trouble and they go that extra mile to make the stay perfect. The lovely lady on reception offered to get up early to make porridge before the run and the icing on the cake was being offered a free upgrade to their best room after the race because it had a roll top bath. Beautiful boutique hotel, perfect location and lovely people. Highly recommended.
My boyfriend took me here for my birthday on the 26th February. And the attention to detail was lovely. The staff were brilliant, and great hosts anything we need they would get.
We had the Alice room and although it’s small it’s absolutely lovely and very pretty. The hotel is a good ten minutes walk from the main centre and a couple of minutes from the pier. Has excellent bars and restaurants just round the corner….
“Excellent Boutique Hotel”
This is a great little hotel, in a great location of Brighton. You can walk anywhere from here in no time at all. The hotel itself is really beautifully decorated and well put together. Our room was a little bit too small for two people so I would recommend going for one size up if you are not staying alone, having said that the room was really pretty.
The staff were fantastic. Friendly and helpful. We held a family party for around twenty people and everything ran smoothly and happily. I would recommend this hotel for all occasions, you will have a wonderful time. I would definitely stay here again.
A really warm and friendly hotel with beautiful decor throughout. Management made us feel very welcome and good attention to detail.
We stayed 1 night in the Moroccan room. Room was a good size for a couple, bed was a super king and very comfy. The room was super clean and the theme room decor was tasteful and warm. Breakfast was great and the hotel catered well for dairy allergies after it was mentioned on booking.
Visitor parking scratchcards provided by the hotel meant we could park nearby for a reduced cost. The hotel was situated in an ideal location for the Pier and shopping in the North Lanes.
We would definitely stay here again!
“Delightful Service, Stylish Surroundings and Fabulous Location”
We will now never stay anywhere else whenever we return to Brighton. Fabulous in every respect. The staff were all charming and the decor was spot on. We even had fresh coffee and warm, just out of the oven home made cookies on arrival -and then champagne cocktails early eve before we headed into town. The location was ideal for the beach, the pier and the lanes.
We are already planning our return for the Easter holidays
A really friendly hotel with a contemporary vibe. Kerry is a welcoming host and has made a real effort to make the place just that little bit special without overdoing it. If you haven’t been to Brighton yet you know what to do… and where to stay!
“A Very Warm Welcome”
We chose Blanch House for our weekend getaway to Brighton due to the positive reviews on here and can only add to them after our stay. Attention to detail and making you feel welcome are the real gems that Kerry and everyone at Blanch House really go out of their way to impress on you.
Parking is a minor issue but we didn’t use our car whilst in Brighton so not a major problem. We were greeted by Kerry and nothing is too much for him to make you welcome, and is a great source for any info on the area, what to do, where to eat etc
We stayed in the ‘Renaissance’ room, which was quite small, but we knew this when booking and was more than adequate for a couple, a lot of thought has gone in to the decor and feel of the room, comfy bed, nice shower, home made biscuits every day, nice soaps etc
Breakfast was made to order and definitely worth staying at the hotel for in the mornings.
Location was great, right on the sea front and about a 10 minute walk into the centre.
We would both highly recommend staying here if you are visiting Brighton, and if/when we go back we will definitely be booking ourselves back in at Blanch House.
Stayed for four nights, Monday – Friday, in Alice room. Warm welcome on arrival. Room was quite small, but not overly so. Comfy bed, plus homemade choc chip /shortbread biscuits were a nice touch on the tea/coffee tray. Bathrobes were also provided.
Bathroom was very small, but everything worked ok, and the size didn’t cause us any problems.
Breakfast was great, with all main dishes being cooked to order. There was a good selection of cereals/fruit salad, cakes and juices available as well.
There’s a small bar and lounge available, but we didn’t use them. Arrived by train/taxi, so parking wasn’t an issue, either.
Less than ten minutes to the pier, and only a minute or two farther to the Lanes/main shopping area.
We sadly only had one night here for our daughters graduation in Brighton, but enjoyed every minute. They really want to care for their guests. We had a beautiful room, lovely cocktails and delicious breakfast.
Thank you Blanch house.
Stay in Legacia if you can; and enquire about the ‘romance’ package. Girlfriend was very impressed. Great room, great service, great breakfast. Thanks to Kerry and all the other staff. Not surprised it’s number 1 on TripAdvisor!
“Very Relaxing and Friendly”
Warm welcome at reception. Immaculately clean, soft and relaxing decor. The room we stayed in was spotlessly clean. Oh and a very tasty breakfast. About a 5min or so walk to the centre of town.
A perfect stay, we will be returning again. Thanks Kerry to you and the team.
“Idyllic, Tranquil, Getaway”
Comfy, convenient and hospitable. Stayed in the Morrocan superior room which had everything we needed-a comfortable, quiet room with en suite and a lovely choice of breakfasts in the morning. Friendly staff who will help with anything which included local enquiries sourcing and booking a massage appointment! We’ll be back.
We booked the hotel based on the strength of the reviews on Trip Advisor. We were certainly not disappointed. The staff were very helpful and attentive, the food was fantastic and room was brilliant.
My partner and I will certainly be recommending this to our friends and family.
“Definitely Gets Our Recommendation!”
We stayed for two nights in Snowstorm and had a wonderful time. We slept brilliantly – such a fantastically comfortable bed – and indulged (over-indulged) in fabulous breakfasts on both days: the home made muesli is absolutely delicious!
Blanch House is perfectly-located, elegant and friendly – the hospitality on offer is top-notch and the little touches, such as homemade biscuits and huge vases of fresh lilies, certainly raises this place above your average B&B.
We stayed in the Orchid Room for a night. Lovely cosy room with a very comfy bed! Only negative is that it was a little bit warm for us and we could hear the bar (although not overly loud) but this stopped early evening so we had a wonderful night sleep. The staff were really lovely and made us feel at home and well looked after. The breakfast was the best that I have ever had! Will definitely be returning when we can. Simply wonderful.
Had a lovely stay here. Very friendly staff, great hotel and well situated for the pier and for a short walk to the town centre. Surrounded by some great bars and night life. Also, complimentary delicious home cooked shortbread biscuits.
“Lovely Hotel, Very Pleasant and Attentive Staff”
Stayed for a night in the Moroccan room. It was lovely and quiet. Very comfortable and clean. Excellent breakfast, freshly cooked. Hotel staff were attentive and pleasant. Nice little touches such as homemade biscuits in the room.
Would stay there again.
“Superb Boutique Hotel in Brighton”
What a perfect Boutique hotel, 10 mins from the Lanes and the Centre of Brighton. Genuine Hospitality from the owner Kerry and Manager Kyle, who make your stay comfortable, informative and special. They care what the guests think, reflect on it, and add a very personal touch. Great rooms, cosy beds and contemporary decorated rooms, lead to a quiet and relaxing ambiance. Add a small bar, a great breakfast and you will see they have got everything covered.
Will definitely return, what a superb hotel.
“Unique and Stylish, Luxurious Comfort and in a Great Brighton Location”
We stayed at Blanch House for 1 night in February 2014. It’s situated on a side street just steps away from the seafront, and in an ideal location for walking to the shops, restaurants and attractions on the seafront, in the cultural quarter, in Kemp Town, and the Lanes.
We originally booked a superior double, and upon arrival we were given a complimentary upgrade to a feature double room. We stayed in “Legacia” which as shown in the photos has stylish and dramatic decor, a huge and extremely comfortable bed, and a roll top bath. The room faces the street and has a side view to the sea. If your budget allows, I would recommend staying in one of the feature doubles – worth every penny – although all of the rooms look nice.
We were so impressed with our stay at Blanch House, we have already booked another night for later in the year and will be staying in the “Perrier Jouet” room as a treat.
The website shows how lovely this hotel is. From the moment we got there, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Kerry the owner introduced himself to us at breakfast, and it is clear that he and his team are 100% committed to excellent customer service.
Breakfast was served in a relaxed dining room environment, and the service was informal but impeccable. The hotel obviously prides itself on serving high quality produce. It was also nice to have flexibility in timings, with breakfast served until 10am if you don’t fancy getting up so early.
We chose Blanch House over the bigger chain hotels, because it is unique and stylish and our stay confirmed that the experience and service in this hotel is far beyond what we have found in many other places. It’s great to find a special place you want to return to!
Blanch House is a high quality hotel, and having stayed there I can see why it’s rated the number one hotel in Brighton by Trip Advisor reviewers.
For parking – you can buy a 24 hour parking permit from the hotel that allows 24 hour parking in a large surrounding area (provided by Brighton and Hove council). We parked a few streets away, so very convenient.
We stayed for one night in a themed suite room at Blanch House. The bed was enormous and very comfortable. The furnishings very tasteful and lavish. Tea and coffee facilities in the room with delicious shortbread. The bathroom matched the bedroom in terms of style and had both a bath and separate shower. Every attention to detail. Perfect.
Breakfast was delicious and made with top quality produce.The staff from the moment we arrived were attentive and helpful.
The location of the Hotel is the best as the pier and the beach are only a moment away as well as shops, cafes and excellent restaurants are on your door step.
We highly recommend Blanch House.
“Superb Attention to Detail”
Stayed 1 night on Thursday 29 January in the ‘Alice’ room and it was very comfortable, the decor of the room requires particular mention as it was quite striking and designed to a very individual high standard…so nice to be somewhere that is different and with character, too many hotels in the UK are all the same.
Staff were polite, professional and attentive, overall the customer service was excellent. The lounge-bar area is particularly good for a hotel of this size and there was a wide range of drinks, a good place to meet friends or have a small meeting.
Breakfast was cooked fresh with much choice, tasty and well presented.
Will certainly use Blanch House again on my next stay in Brighton.
“Great Little Boutique Hotel”
Stayed for 2 nights in Alice room, not the biggest room but well equipped and quiet and cosy, notwithstanding the seagulls at 6am!
Breakfasts are top quality, but the food was a bit slow coming from the kitchen. We liked the bar area, which was great for a night cap at the end of the day.
Would also like to mention the great service from Kyle, who was on duty all weekend and served us at breakfast, in the bar and check out.
The location is about a 10 min walk to the town centre in a quiet street, and we would definitely recommend this hotel for a short stay in brighton.
“Perfect Base for a Weekend Away”
We stayed for one night in the Sakura room, and could not fault the room, staff, food or facilities; everything was perfect. The room was clean and warm, breakfast was delicious and the staff were very helpful. The hotel was in the perfect location to stroll down to the pier, and most of the restaurants, cafés and places of interest were within an easy 10-15 minute walk. The hotel was quiet, and although we did hear some noise from a nearby bar in the evening, it was all quiet by 11pm so we slept soundly.
We can happily recommend this hotel and will definitely return if we get the chance.
“A Little Gem”
I travelled to Brighton with my daughter for a girlie weekend.
We booked Blanch House as it had been given such good reviews on Tripadvisor and I am so glad that we did.
It is within walking distance of the Pier and the Lanes. All of the staff were extremely pleasant and very attentive.
We stayed in an Alice room which was very nice and included delicious biscuits and a bottle of water. The bed was so comfortable and there is free wifi. We were recommended two great places to eat locally. The cocktail lounge was lovely and the cocktails were yummy. Breakfast was delicious.
Although there were a couple of niggles, these were quickly sorted out and I would definitely return here.
“Perfect Escape from Reality”
I won a competition for a night at Blanch House and really wasn’t sure what to expect. I thought we’d be forgotten about, as we weren’t paying! As it was my daughter’s 18th birthday, I decided to use the win to treat her for a fun night out. (We live in Brighton) From the moment we arrived till the moment we left we were treated so warmly – like friends come for a visit. They really spoiled us rotten! The room was so beautiful (and warm), the bed very comfy and the bathroom had a lovely big tub (sorry for leaving a glitter ring!) as well as a shower. The breakfast was very delicious and very generous portions. The coffee was lovely and hot, too. I really can’t praise the staff enough- they level of service was perfect -not intrusive or ‘too much’ but enough that you didn’t have to worry about anything.
We explored the local cuisine and shops and had a real fun day.
I went to work the next day so relaxed and my daughter went to college the next day the envy of her friends. So even if you live in Brighton, it’s worth making a booking to experience a mini vacation in the friendliest part of town.
Me and my partner stayed at Blanch house for my 30th birthday weekend. As soon as we arrived I knew it was going to be a lovely place. Reception staff friendly and welcoming. We had Complimentary breakfast in bed, really nice breakfast and good variety. We stayed in the Galaxy room which we were upgraded to on arrival this was a bigger and better room than what we had booked. All the staff and Kerry the owner were fantastic they made the stay just perfect.
Enjoyed our time in Brighton so much that we are returning for valentines day.
Thumbs up for Blanch House
“Very Friendly and Attentive Service”
Booked the Harlequin room. Online booking process very efficient and then received another personal email a few days before with more detailed info and a call on the morning to see if there was anything else they could do for us. The road is very narrow and all the bays near by were full so had to park a bit further away that we would have liked. Welcome from the team was very warm.
Bright, clean, quirky modern decoration throughout. En suite is quite small (no bath) but they make the most of the space. My only complaint would be about the shower. For me – if you call your self a luxury / boutique hotel and there’s no big bath to laze in, then you have to have a blasting hot power shower. It isn’t. But the wife says I am being picky and you can’t put proper water systems in grade 2 listed buildings.
Came back to the hotel after dinner out, for cocktails. Again – very attentive service, and good choices on the drinks menu. Very comfortable, massive bed – slept like a log. Breakfast next morning – same staff were there as bright and cheerful as ever (do they ever sleep???). We both went for the full English which was excellent – came very fast, not too much. Really good quality sausages and bacon. Making me hungry just thinking of it again.
“Lovely Warm Hosts, Excellent Stay”
I stayed here with my parents while we were on holiday from Australia. It’s a long way to come and they had never been to Brighton before. Kerry and his team were unbelievably helpful, providing maps and recommendations for food and activities in Brighton and the surrounding towns. Our room was lovely and cosy as well, we slept really well. Breakfast was excellent and Kerry’s team were always willing to refill our toast and juices at no extra cost. Blanch house is also really close to the town centre, which made for some lovely walks in the early morning and late evening.
As we were leaving we realised we had lost our room key. Usually, a host would be annoyed at the inconvenience of this, but Kerry was anything but. They helped us look for it and, when it couldn’t be found, he was extremely kind and understanding about it.
I can’t recommend this place enough and, if we come back to the UK, we look forward to staying at Blanch House again.
“A Wonderful Stay”
This was our second stay at Blanch House and we were not disappointed. We were made to feel extremely welcome from the start; the staff are all very friendly and accommodating. Kerry, the owner, clearly takes great pride in the hotel, which is demonstrated by his great attention to detail.
We stayed in the Moroccan room, which is very comfortable, a decent size and tastefully decorated. As the room is at the back of the hotel, there is no noise, so we had two very peaceful nights’ sleep. We would happily stay in this room again.
Breakfast is also of a high standard. A special New Year’s Day brunch was arranged (including later serving time!), which was much appreciated. There are a number of good breakfast options and ingredients appear to be carefully sourced.
Overall, Blanch House appears to be a great place to stay in Brighton, where you can expect a warm welcome and great service throughout your visit. We will certainly be back the next time we’re in Brighton.
“Friendly, Caring and Luxurious”
I took a friend here for a surprise New Years Eve get away to Brighton. We were both delighted with the friendly service and greeted with the warmest welcome.
We stayed in the Orchid Room which was very comfortable and perfect for a 2 night stay. The bed was lovely and had a freeview television with tea, coffee and home made shortbread and cookies (which were thankfully topped up each day.. delicious!)
Included in our price was breakfast which we assumed would be a buffet but was actually a sit down mini restaurant where you’re greeted by the owner and given a menu to order from. The food was lovely and couldn’t have felt more welcome in a hotel!
Definitely recommend this place and will stay again.
Location is brilliant just a 5 minute walk from the pier and about 10/15 minutes from the shops.
Couldn’t have been happier with Blanch House. Extraordinary service and attention to detail, beautiful room – “Legacia” – with a view of the sea and a sensational bed, and the best breakfast at any guest house, anywhere.
Very highly recommended.
“Perfect New Year Stay”
We had a Wedding in Brighton on New Years Eve, and just needed somewhere to stay for a couple of nights. Tripadvisor never lets us down and saw the great reviews and booked it.
Room was lovely, and quiet, even on New Years Eve !
Breakfast was superb, both English and I had a super smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on toast which set me up for the day.
Great owner and staff. They seem to be determined to stay at number one..
“Two Night Break”
Had a lovely stay in a great location which is quiet yet only a fifteen minute walk to the centre.
Bar/ reception, breakfast and service were all very good. Room and bathroom were nice but compact – wouldn’t have wanted to be in one of the small rooms. Overall a really enjoyable and friendly stay.
A lovely, lovely hotel with the most accommodating staff, the location is top drawer and the place is cared for and a real gem of an establishment in a formidable building.
I’d give it awards and the breakfast was excellent with clearly decent produce used. Kerry is unquestionably the perfect host and a man to aspire to be like. Should we find ourselves again in Brighton I’ll be returning here in a trice.
We had our Christmas party at the Blanch House this year and everything from the room, the food and the service was first class. Kerry was very attentive and I would recommend this hotel to anyone, a great night was had by all.
“Delightful, Friendly and Stylish”
We had a 2 night stay for a pre-Christmas weekend in festive Brighton.
The choice of Blanch house was bang on the nail- the staff couldn’t be more attentive; the room (although small) was warm, stylish and comfortable, and breakfast was freshly cooked and excellent. Everything showed the owners’ care and attention to detail -from home-made biscuits in the room to the most fantastic and plentiful brekkie.
Blanch house knocks spots off most 4 star hotels – I can’t recommend it highly enough! Kerry even nipped out to remove a parking ticket that an over-zealous attendant slapped on our car within minutes of our arrival- so that we wouldn’t be upset- & then wrote an appeal on our behalf!! What more can I say? Thankyou!

“Fantastic Little Brighton Hotel”
From our arrival, the owner and staff ensured We had a very pleasant stay. We stayed in the Sakura room for 2 nights. Room was spotless and tastefully decorated.
Breakfast was a joy, good quality,lots of options and decent sizes portions, served by smiling staff.In the evening we were ordered 2 4 1 cocktails which was a lovely touch.
All in all, met our high expectations after all the glowing reviews on here.
Brilliant, extremely friendly and helpful staff and owner. Boutique style hotel with lovely room, extremely comfortable, clean, tidy and well presented.
Great to have the bar and lounge area together. Homemade condiments and good food. Good location for both shops, train and sea front.
Loved it, thank you to all staff at Blanch House.
My firm hired the Private dining room and bar for an intimate Corporate Dinner for Clients in December this year and I have to say the service was second to none.
There were 37 of us and the food , and the attentive service of the staff made this something special.
Kerry and Jeremy have created something very special and their influence rubs off on the staff who were all without exception, charming.
We shall use Blanch House again
“Excellent Christmas Menu and Service”
We recently revisited Blanch house (well worth coming back to) for a Christmas meal with a small group of Catering and Hospitality specialists – so we know what its all about!!! and what a brilliant time was had by us all.
We were greeted on arrival , coats taken and shown into the cosy bar area where we were served aperitifs ,the staff were attentive and friendly and made us feel welcome -always a good start.
After a while we were shown through to the beautifully decorated private dining room where the table was laid up to perfection , glasses and cutlery were gleaming -something which is so important but not always the case in other establishments at this time of year.
The menu which we had pre ordered was full of variety and contained the usual culprits but also much more:
Chicken Liver parfait ,red onion marmalade and brioche, Gravadlax with chilli oil and beetroot crisps, goats cheese with baby artichokes and pan fried mullet with sauce vierge which I chose which was delicious and cooked to perfection .Main courses included turkey with all the trimmings , lamb Shank with Imam Bayildi and yoghurt flat bread, soft poached egg florentine with garlic, nutmeg and crispy rosti potatoes and I chose Line caught cod with oyster mushroom risotto. Risotto is difficult to get right, sometimes too dry or the rice not cooked enough but again it was delicious and beautifully cooked and garnished. Desserts were Christmas pud, Orange Frangipan tart with clotted cream,Cheese and Biscuits and I chose the Bitter Chocolate tart with griottine cherries which was a perfect . Good quality coffee was served hot with chocolates great way to end a perfect meal.
The wines chosen were of excellent quality and served at the right temperature and expertly served by well trained staff. The staff were delightful and made us all feel special and a great time was had by all.
Blanch is tucked away but well worth seeking out .It is spotlessly clean in ever area and you will not be at all disappointed if you go there. So much so we have asked them to pencil in a get together for the same time next year ,which speaks for itself.
“Great Place, Great Location”
Just got back home after a lovely weekend stay at the Blanch House. Kerry and his staff are wonderful and cannot do enough for you. We stayed in the Morocco room and it was lovely, clean and comfortable.
We are planning to return for another great weekend the same time next year.
“A Part of the Family”
My girlfriend and I spent the weekend here for our anniversary and we couldn’t have picked a better place to stay!
The staff were incredibly friendly and we were made to feel as though we were part of the family.
We stayed in the Harlequin room, which was lovely. It was very spacious and nicely turned out. The bed was huge!
Our stay included breakfast, on the first morning, I had the salmon and scrambled egg and my partner had Scottish pancakes. Both were really tasty and made to a very good quality. The portion sizes were spot on as well. We didn’t feel too full, nor found ourselves hungry a few hours later. The second, and final morning , we both had the Full English, which again, couldn’t fault. The ingredients were all full of flavour, particular the bacon and black pudding (which was optional, in case you’re not a fan of the stuff).
Highly recommend staying here if you’re ever in Brighton. I have to emphasis how fantastic the staff were.
“The Blanch House”
We recently spent an evening at The Blanch House as we were attending a function at the hotel.
What a fabulous dinner! Our room (Poppy) was beautiful, I understand all the rooms have different themes and decor.
The staff were delightful, only too pleased to help.
Would thoroughly recommend. Oh, great breakfast too…
“A Weekend to Remember”
An absolute first class hotel. Very clean and tastefully decorated. First class breakfast served by attentive staff. The hotels owners have a real passion about the guests requirements and this was evident from the time we arrived to the time we left.
We got engaged while in Brighton this weekend and staying at Blanch House made our weekend even more memorable. Many thanks to every one at Blanch House.
“A Warm Welcome”
Blanch house offers a very warm welcome, and nothing is too much trouble for this great team of helpful and friendly staff.
Proprietor, Kerry was also extremely helpful in suggestions for great places to eat, and saved me a fortune in taxi fares accordingly, thank you Kerry!
While Blanch House is set in the heart of the hustle and bustle of Trendy Kemp town, I have to say that during my three night stay, not once did I hear a sound from within the house itself, which is very rare indeed.
My suggestion for breakfast is the full English with scrambled eggs, apart from my partners eggs (I had to say that) I have never had such creamy fluffy ones! EVER!!!
Would I stay here again?
You bet your bottom dollar I would!
“An Evening of Food Delights”
I spent an evening enjoying the delights of Blanch House and its warm hospitality and superb food at a private Christmas function this week.
The evening was enjoyed by all and I have to say I was surprised at the high quality of food, it was a feast before my very eyes. I enjoyed the festive Christmas menu with sumptuous Red Mullet followed by a moist a delicious Turkey with all the trimmings.
The service professional yet unobtrusive made it all a memorable evening to remember, I will definitely be back!
“A Great Time Was Had By All”
A group of 17 of us meet up for the evening on Monday & had a wonderful evening great to catch up with old friends!
Good central location near to sea front & the lovely Lanes of Brighton but small & friendly boutique hotel with great service & food that we all enjoyed !
A memorable evening to be repeated next year !
What a lovely hotel located within easy walk of The Lanes and two minutes to the promenade and the beach. The hotel was spotlessly clean with lovely rooms. Comfy bed and lovely and quiet at night. Very tastefully decorated in a boutique style.
The staff were wonderful and could not do enough for you, we were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. Breakfast was wonderful the food was so tasty and cooked to perfection. What a refreshing change to have an interesting veggie equivalent of the Full English.
We will definitely be staying here again…..many thanks to all at Blanch House we had a fantastic weekend.
Lesley & David Filmer
“A Warm Welcome”
A splendid host who was the perfect professional hotelier and clearly took great pride in the place and enjoyed looking after visitors. Very comfortable bed and a great ‘home from home’ feel to it. Not that far from the centre or sea either.
This hotel is smart, classy, well equipped, well located and the staff are simply excellent. Thanks again!
I really love Brighton and would always look to stay at the blanch house when in town, I 100% recommend this hotel.
“Love this Hotel”
We stayed for a second time with Kerry and the team, and yet again I cannot fault our stay. Lovely hosts- they cannot do enough to help, beautiful room- Perrier Jouet, and perfect location for a night out. Thank you Kerry et al.
I was extremely pleasantly surprised with our room, the whole building is immaculate and well presented.
Our host was most ‘hospitable’ and helped us immediately with a map of the area and offered best venues for dinner etc.
We most definatley will be back thankyou for a wonderful stay in a fabulous location!!!!
I stayed in the Peonie room, which is small, but very good value and nice and quiet. I appreciated the complementary water, tea and biscuits.
The breakfast was good and the service excellent, especially as they turned the music off immediately I entered any room! ! ! (I hate piped music) !
Very good, personal service. Excellently placed for exploring Brighton. My friends parked easily with the help of the vouchers.
Where do I start?
Fabulous hotel and extremely welcoming staff. We stayed in the Poppy room which was perfect for our needs. Breakfast options were very yummy along with a well stocked bar and half price cocktails.
It is obvious why this location in number 1 on this site. We will be back, thanks Kerry and the rest of your staff.
“Gem of a Place”
Having stayed in Brighton many times and moved around to different hotels each time, we can safely say that we have found our home from home.
Blanch House is wonderful.
From the moment you arrive you are made to feel so warmly welcome by Kerry. From booking in at Reception with the lovely Josie to him taking you to your room, you know that he is delighting in showing you his home and hoping that you will love it as much as he and his partner, Jeremy do.
It’s the little touches that matter: from noting from your initial booking conversation as to why you are visiting Brighton, to the wonderful individually decorated bedrooms with their luxury en-suites to the home made biscuits thoughtfully provided in your room.
Nothing is too much trouble and you leave for your night out almost looking forward to coming back in again to home (and that is not too strong a word!).
Breakfast is divine and plentiful and a good choice of cereals, pastries and fruit salad, apart from the usual full English or vegetarian options. And you never rushed nor made to feel ill at ease for taking your time. Such a luxury!
Safe to say, next time Brighton beckons we’ll be back – and I’m already looking forward to it!
Blanch House in Kemp Town, Brighton is cosy with excellent personable service. The hotel is ideally and conveniently situated. The welcome was great and the breakfasts and general attitude made one feel at home…
“Stylish and sexy updating of a Brighton seaside hotel”
We were attracted to this hotel by the stylish and sensual room designs, the reviews around service and specifically the fact that they were happy with a one-night reservation on a Friday when many Brighton hotels specify a two-night minimum stay.
We had the Perrier Jouet room, the best, and the Harlequin for our son. Booking over the phone was very encouraging, the hotel owner recommended an excellent family restaurant and we were delighted to be given a complimentary bottle of the eponymous Perrier Jouet champagne.
The staff were exceptionally helpful and welcoming, we met the rest of the family for cocktails in the bar before supper and they returned for breakfast the next morning.
Our room was delightful and we slept well. Earl Grey tea and home-made shortbread biscuits the next morning, followed by breakfast, which was excellent. Juice, coffee, toast and full English, or a veggie version. Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs were an alternative to the full English. Served with panache and a smile.
Delightful stay in a brilliantly stylish and well executed hotel. Recommend it.
Stayed here for a weekend and quite frankly cannot fault it, rooms and facilities were spotlessly clean, and the breakfast was lovely. The two girls staff could not be more polite, friendly and helpful. Will definitely return.
“Lives up to its Reputation”
We were back for a second visit to Blanch House. The staff are extremely helpful, very friendly and make a huge effort. The room we stayed in was very nice. The breakfasts were excellent with plenty of choice, we loved the full English and the pancakes, bacon and maple syrup. I can see why they are the top B&B in Brighton.
When staying in Brighton we usually choose one of the chain hotels. Being a birthday treat for my husband and hotel offering a romantic package and good reviews decided to give the blanch a try. We were not disappointed from the friendly greeting as you step through the door to the lovely breakfast.
The romantic package included a cream tea bubbly in the room and as it was my husbands birthday they kindly swapped the flowers for a big box of Hotel Chocolat chocolates…the quirky room included snow globes and had a huge bed. We now are converts to the individual style hotels..and certainly will be back to stay at the Blanch…
I was treated to an overnight stay at The Blanch House for my birthday, and I wasn’t disappointed.
We were greeted at reception by one of the owners who was very welcoming and although as we were a little early and therefore our room wasn’t quite ready, our bags were taken to our room so they’d be waiting for us when we returned and we were given a drink in the lovely bar area.
We returned late after dinner and cocktails but had a key to the front door so this wasn’t a problem. a receptionist was still working and showed us to our room (Alice) which was small but perfectly formed. It had everything you’d expect of a modern hotel, the bed was comfortable and the shower decent. The full English breakfast the next morning was high quality and tasty, as were the homemade preserves and cake/granola bars.
I would definitely recommend this lovely little place.
“Fantastic Weekend Break”
We stayed here for a weekend break on the romantic weekend package which included Prosecco, flowers and an afternoon tea in addition to the room and breakfast. Everything was ready when we arrived – the flowers were beautiful and the Prosecco excellent. The scones for afternoon tea were delicious and the bar area lovely to relax in.
The room was clean, quiet and beautifully decorated. We stayed in Sakura. The breakfast was fantastic – can recommend the pancakes – and at a good time for a relaxed weekend.
The location meant it was easy to get to and from the station, and everything we wanted to see was within a 10-15 minute walk.
The hotel staff were very helpful in giving us restaurant recommendations, and checking whether somewhere we wanted to go was closed (it was – saved us lots of time).
We would definitely come back again for a weekend sometime.
We stayed here for a long weekend and I can highly recommend it. The room was beautiful, the breakfast was good and the staff were helpful, knowledgeable about the area and very friendly. It’s central to town, about 5 mins walk away but quiet at night too.
Having booked this last minute we were not disappointed!
Wow this place is amazing. Fantastic location only a few steps from the seafront and a short 10 minute walk to the pier. I was impressed by BH immediately. Great welcome, gorgeous room and I adored all of the little special touches.
Wonderful smell of fresh flowers as you walk in, homemade biscuits in your room, fresh chilled mineral water free of charge, beautiful aromatherapy toiletries in the room and tea/coffee facilities.
The breakfast was amazing, everything you want from cereal, homemade flapjacks, fresh fruit and pastries. The English breakfast was very good using fresh ingredients. Also smoked salmon with scrambled egg! These touches are why you are number 1
We thoroughly enjoyed our night away, thank you!
“Boutique Hotel = Excellent”
We fancied a night away in Brighton last week, no driving and just a two hour train journey.
After some research came across Blanch House, good location, great reviews and they had a room. We stayed in the Moroccan room, not much of a view but quite funky and cosy.
On checking in the greeting was very nice and throughout our short stay we were treated like valued guests. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice, great service in a lovely dining room.
Whilst my wife headed off to do some last minute shopping before we headed home, I was made very welcome chilling out in their comfortable reception room.
We will definitely be back next year when the weather is better.
We booked 3 nights at the end of October as the second half of our honeymoon. We stayed in the Perrier Jouet Room which was perfect; large, with a great roll top bath and a lovely separate shower. Breakfasts were terrific. The owner and staff were excellent.
This is a boutique hotel that is a lovely change from the large higher class hotels. You get all you need with the personal touch. Highly recommended.
Great little hotel. Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. Room (we had the top floor) full of character. Hotel is central, ten mins walk to centre, lanes pier etc. W
ould definitely return as the hotel stay added to our enjoyable experience of Brighton.
“Superb Small Hotel”
This Hotel is small.. but lovely for it. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were thoroughly spoilt. The staff were cheerful friendly and incredibly knowledgeable about the local area, their dinner reservation was spot on!
We booked a superior room because we wanted the larger bed and I would highly recommend doing so. (6.6×6.6) We chose the Harlequin Room which was decorated in black and gold with a super king size bed, which was incredibly comfortable. The bathroom was very compact with a toilet, sink and corner shower, but the room was quite spacious. The view was just of the backs of other houses, but not offensive in any way.
The addition of a bar was most welcome and I thought quite reasonably priced. The breakfast was cooked to order and delicious, as were the homemade nut bars and carrot cake, a really nice choice all round.
The decor has been well thought out and I really cannot recommend it highly enough. Kemptown itself was great, fabulous restaurants and a real village feel about it and it was a very short 15 downhill stroll to the lanes.
What I will say, for those who are used to modern amenities please bear in mind this is a beautiful old building and as such there are quirks that you need to consider. The stairs are quite steep in places and the old building makes for issues you may not be used to. As we were on a high floor, in order to have a shower we had to let the water run for some time (5 minutes), but this is hardly surprising as the water has a long way to travel, this was not enough to impact on our stay but some people might find this frustrating but I think if you are aware of this then it is not a problem – it certainly wasn’t for us.
I can’t wait to go back when the weather is better and to be thoroughly spoiled again. Stay here and you will not be disappointed!
My husband and I stayed here on a Friday night for just one night. I can safely say that, had I not had a little one to go home to, I would have love the have stayed another night.
We were greeted with a huge smile and shown promptly to our room despite being a little early. Room was clean and spacious, we stayed in the Harlequin room. My husband quickly ate all of the homemade biscuits.
After being out for the whole day we had a nightcap in the hotel bar with was lovely and relaxing. Fantastic nights sleep with no disruptions at all, no even from the seagulls. Breakfast was beyond fantastic. Fantastic selection and quick service.
Cannot recommend this place enough. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.
“Lovely little hotel”
We stayed here for 1 night during October half-term (29th) and have to say it is a bit of a find.
We stayed in the Peony room and whilst it is most certainly a small room we found it to be perfect for our needs. Beautifully decorated with contemporary fixtures and fittings; the room was finished off with some great finishing touches (handmade shortbread my particular favourite…..)
The hotel itself is decorated nicely and the bar area and breakfast room are great.
Our stay was short but memorable and a special mention has to go to the lady on reception and coordinating breakfast in the morning (sorry didn’t catch her name), her attention to everyone’s needs was fantastic.
My boyfriend and I have stayed at Blanch House twice now and wouldn’t consider staying anywhere else in Brighton. We have stayed in both Sakura and Alice, both beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean.
The beds are nice and comfortable too. Service in the hotel is excellent, everybody we spoke to was extremely friendly and helpful.
We usually stay in Brighton just for the weekend and enjoy a night out for dinner and drinks: being able to have a nice cocktail in the bar before we head out is great. Breakfast is absolutely delicious, I couldn’t stop thinking about the pancakes after we left!
Highly recommended and excellent value for money as well.
“Great bed and location”
Staff are very friendly and welcoming. The room we had was very quirky and the bathroom great.
The location is right near the beach and bars. The bed and the pillows in the room are amazing – so comfortable!
The breakfast in the morning is great.
I would stay here again.
We booked Blanch House for 2 nights, we had the Poppy room. The staff are very knowledgeable about pubs and restaurants etc and go out of their way to make sure you have a pleasant stay.
The hotel is located very close to great pubs, clubs and a short walk from the coast. We went to a gig at The Brighton Dome and it was a short walk away.
The breakfast is cooked to order with a lot of choice, as well as a buffet, so you wont go hungry.
We loved our stay there and definitely will be back!
Blanch House is a refreshing alternative to the large chain and often dull corporate mainstream hotels. We only stayed for one night but were made to feel very welcome by all the staff.
The whole feel of Blanch House is very professional with the wonderfully personal touch so rarely found in many hotels today. We couldn’t fault the room (Sakura), the cocktails, the service, the biscuits, the location and the price. The breakfast was very good, although the full cooked version was a little too much – maybe we will choose the smoked salmon next time!
We will most definitely be returning and I recommend booking a stay at Blanch House for anyone who values a high quality hotel experience.
“An unforgettable stay!”
We stayed at the Blanch House in the Perrier Jouët room, for one evening. As soon as we arrived we were made to feel totally welcome! They helped to find us a parking space and were very attentive to our needs.
My fiancé paid for the romantic package and when we walked into the room there was a beautiful bouquet of flowers waiting for me and a bottle of champagne on ice. The room was spectacular, with not a thing out of place. They told us everything we needed to know about the room, and also informed us of the homemade biscuits to go with our tea and coffee in the room… As soon as you opened the tin, you were hit with a delicious, warming scent! The biscuits were divine!!
We went out for evening to eat and drink, as it was only a short walk to then town. The evening turned into a very special occasion indeed, as my partner proposed to me! Not long after it happened we headed back to blanch house, where were greeted with an enthusiastic congratulations! We were made to feel very special!
The next morning we went down for breakfast and were again congratulated by the owner! He seemed very pleased to hear the news. We both ordered a full English to help cure the hangover, and it went down a treat. Every part of it was as tasty as the rest. And again all staff were very attentive to all our needs.
Overall, I can honestly say it was worth every penny! The stay was perfect, and we would recommend it to anyone. We will definitely be returning! Thanks blanch house! You’re awesome!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Sakura Room. Very cosy and immaculately clean. A great choice of breakfast not to be missed . The staff are all very helpful and friendly too. Would recommend and would stay again.
“Business Strategy Session with an excellent breakfast!”
We booked Blanch House on numerous recommendations and we are delighted that we listened!
We had a business strategy session from 8am until 1pm and the room was set up beautifully – the staff were brilliant and everything was ready to go – the projector was ready for use, which is always a bonus!
We had a sit down full breakfast for 9 and it was lovely, a perfect way to start the day.
Could not fault this experience and we will be using the venue again for future meetings and sessions!
“First Choice Hotel”
Stayed here for just one night in October in the Perrier Jouet Room. Made very welcome on arrival, given help to find a parking space and a voucher. The room was large, clean and comfortable. Bathroom was well appointed and spotless with a great drench shower.
The bar area was comfortable and a relaxing place to sit before or after dinner.
There is a separate breakfast area and the food was everything it should be. Choice of cereals to start with juices / croissants and your choice of cooked food – all very well cooked and tasty.
In short this place is a creditable alternative to any hotel in Brighton. It does not have a restaurant but this is no disadvantage in a city with so many great eating places. ( we ate a Terre a Terre which was as good as ever ).
We have been visiting Brighton for about 27 years, We will definitely use Blanch House in future.
“A Birthday to Remember”
Where do I start? From our first visit to plan my 50th birthday party, we realised that Blanch House is a very special place, run by very special people.
Kerry, Siony and Josie skilfully combine a very professional approach with immediately putting you at ease and making you feel entirely at home. Nothing was too much trouble in the planning with superb attention to detail making it a perfect weekend.
The rooms are extremely comfortable and beautifully decorated. The food was amazing – a dinner in the Belle Epoque for 22 people – beautifully presented and delicious. We had cocktails before, and after, dinner in the bar which was extremely cool and the perfect place to party.
Thank you to everyone at Blanch House – you made my birthday. And the breakfast on Sunday was absolutely delicious. We’ll be back.
“Best of Brighton”
Kerry is the best! A most gracious and knowledgeable B and B proprietor- the experience was superlative. I stayed in the Perrier Jouet room and it was beautiful. Excellent wifi, delicious breakfast and room with all the creature comforts and elegant as well.
“A Must Stay”
From the minute we walked in we were made to feel welcome! The hotel is lovely and decor superb. Josie was very hospitable helping us book taxi’s, restaurants etc…
Rooms were lovely, clean and stocked with yummy cookies!
Breakfast was excellent quality and yet again outstanding service. Nothing is too much trouble for this hotel.
“Charming town house, welcoming ambiance”
We stayed over with family and friends for one night – so had 4 bedrooms between us; one of which we had to organise at last minute notice on the day itself. My partner has a fear of cold rooms and they made sure that the heating was on, and the room was toasty when we got in for the evening.
Kerry, one of the owners, was extremely obliging and accommodating. We had drinks in the cosy lounge downstairs where the reception is located, and he was very welcoming and friendly. We received good service over breakfast; again very accommodating to requests for extra coffee cafetieres, extra toast etc.
The rooms are beautifully appointed – we stayed in the Perrier-Jouet, and it was more spacious than we imagined when looking at the pictures online before we booked. Nice products in the bathroom – they use Aromatherapy Associates. Only gripe, and it’s a minor one, is that the dispensers mounted to the walls had tricky pumps, so took a bit of manipulating to squeeze sufficient amounts out for hand washing and shower. We also had a nice roll top bathtub and spacious shower with good water flow and easily adjustable temperature (not one of those you have to wait ages to get it at the right temperature before you climb in at risk of being scalded or freezing cold). Also there’s an electric pump for the WC so it does make a bit of a noise after you flush but only for a very short duration. There’s a sign mentioning this on the wall, so good management of expectations.
We’ll definitely return there next time we stay in Brighton. It’s not too far from the train station either and from the main drag off the beach.
All in all, a lovely pleasant stay. We would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a charming town house experience and avoid the throngs at larger hotels in Brighton.
“What a retreat”
It’s was the second visit for my partner and I and once again we were delighted, we simply love Blanch House and it felt like we were coming home.
The genuine service we received on arrival from Siony was impeccable and the room was stunning.
I slept like a baby and enjoyed every mouthful of breakfast. Can’t wait for the next visit.
Thanks again to Kerry and the team, 5 big fat juicy stars.
“Great boutique hotel in Brighton”
This review is a bit late, but as they say better late than never.
We hired the entire hotel for our wedding party weekend as we had got married abroad and wanted a special party for all our close friends and family and Blanch house and the team defiantly gave that to us.
The hotel has 11 individually designed rooms all to a great standard, a good sized bar and dinning area. They are more than happy to cater for any needs you have, from wedding parties, fine dinning meals or any celebrations you may have.
We are going back for a weekend break in December and can’t wait.
Thanks to Kerry and the team.
“Superb place to stay”
This is truly a superb place to stay. The staff and owner are out of this world and cannot do enough for you.
We spent 4 days in their signature room for my ladies birthday, flowers and champagne were exceptional and the room awesome. Breakfast fresh and delicious using only quality ingredients.
Thank you for an unforgettable stay and cannot wait to return.
Location very good only few minutes to pier and town and some special pubs and restaurants close by, hand in hand pub and 24 Georges particular favourites.
“Exceptional Service and very comfortable stay”
The owner genuinely cares and it shows. The hotel is tastefully decorated, the bedrooms are themed and it really works, it’s spotlessly clean and the beds are very comfortable. Veggie options at breakfast were good.
Good news and bad news on parking – good news it’s just £9.50 for a 24-hour permit for Zone C, less than half the price of city centre car parks and bigger hotel chains. Bad news is that it can be tricky to get a space! Arrive early/mid-afternoon and you’ll be fine. Late afternoon/early evening you’ll need to drive around a bit. But worth persevering. Short walk into the centre of Brighton, and 30 yards to the seafront.
We’d definitely stay again. All hotels should be like this!
“A real jewel”
I stayed at Blanch House for four nights. It was my first visit to the Brighton Hove area. I found it to be the perfect place to relax and enjoy the area.
Kerry made me feel very welcome and helped me plan my walks and shopping trips. I was looking for something quiet where I wouldn’t feel awkward as a solo female traveller.
From the tiny but exquisite room (there are larger rooms) to home made cookies for afternoon tea, to the scrumptious breakfast, this was exactly what I wanted.
Outstanding ’boutique’ hotel, friendly staff, tasteful decor. Nice attention to details. Great breakfast in a lovely room. Convenient central location. Very good value for money. Best place I’ve stayed in for years! Can’t recommend enough.
We stayed at Blanch House last night and everything was perfect. Kerry the owner was so very welcoming and helpful and his hospitality was second to none. We stayed in the Perrier Jouet Room which was beautifully decorated, amazing bed, lovely roll top bath and a huge shower – even home made biscuits to have with your tea.
Breakfast was a feast and absolutely delicious with all the lovely touches. I would definitely recommend staying here, it’s right by the sea front and everywhere is very accessible.
This place is in a side street in parking zone C. On arrival pay £9.50 for a 24 hour parking permit. Restricts you to surrounding streets in zone C. Cheapest and easiest way to park once you drive around a bit to find a spot. Meters charge for 2 hr max stay at £6 so get a permit. Only a few minutes walk directly onto seafront to pier.
Room was fine, shabby chic would be too strong but it was very clean. Although shower in bath too close to wall for fat person of 6 ft but it was OK for a night. Bathroom was small but there again what would one intend to do in a bathroom apart from have a bath. The green haired young lady at reception was great, really helpful and attentive could not have asked for more.
Breakfast was spiffing with choice of fat boys breakfast / vegetarian breakfast plus the usual toast etc. our room was at the back where a bar / pub is situated but the quiet murmur of people outside was gone by 21:00 hrs. There is a pleasant front room come bar which was well decorated in that it was nice to sit for a while.
We had the most lovely stay at Blanch House. Great location and fabulous service. The Moroccan room is gorgeous, lovely big bed and wonderfully comfortable pillows and duvet!
A previous review stated that it was a bit pricey. It isn’t! The Premier Inn will cost you a similar price and they won’t give you the breakfast or the service that Blanch House offers. You can also purchase a parking permit for 24hours ( this is cheaper than some of the car parks) and we managed to park close by.
The breakfast room is clean and very well appointed .And the standard of food was exceptional. We will definitely stay here again. Kerry and his colleagues make you feel most welcome and are happy to give you advice on places to visit and things to see.
“Lovely attention to detail and service”
So pleased I booked at Blanch House and stayed in Perrier Jouer. The room was beautifully appointed, with a sense of uniqueness and quality. So much more character than at the bigger hotels! Loved the cocktail bar for an evening drink, and breakfast was lovely too.
The owner and staff members were very friendly and helpful too. It all felt very special and I’d love to come back again.
“Overnight stay at Blanch House”
Our first visit to Blanch House, a well run establishment with an owner who genuinely cares that his guests enjoy their stay.
Our room was immaculately clean and stylishly furnished with carefully chosen period pieces.The attention to detail is apparent throughout the entire hotel .
It’s position is ideal , just a few short yards to the promenade and no more than a 10-15 minute stroll into the livelier part of town.
The breakfast in the airy lounge reception area was a most satisfying way to end a brief stay that left us looking forward to our next visit.
“Blanch House ~ pleasant stay”
First time staying at Blanch House for a birthday weekend. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made us feel relaxed. Blanch Hotel looked very clean you could see that they took great care in presentation and cleanliness.
Breakfast was lovely overall pleasant stay.
Excellent location near pier and short walk to shops ideal! Will be staying again next visit to Brighton
“Great service by owner on property”
A small English row house with the quirks of these buildings — small rooms and narrow stairs. But the service is great and all rooms have a theme (and the appropriate name). The big rooms are excellent, the small ones are very nice as well, with great attention to detail and individual design, just, well, small.
Wonderful bathrooms, excellent cookies, good breakfast and an owner on-site who takes care of his guests made this a nice stay in a great location minutes walking from the center and the Brighton Pier.
“ANOTHER ENJOYABLE RETURN VISIT”
We’ve been staying at Blanch House since 2012 and had our fifth visit there last week. Blanch House has now changed from a 4* Bed and Breakfast to a 3* Town House Hotel, no doubt to assist potential occupants in quickly finding a ‘hotel’ in Brighton instead of a B&B.
The difference in the residents’ experience? Absolutely none!
It remains a unique and individual hotel, in an ideal location, offering a very high standard of accommodation, food and service delivered by very warm and welcoming management and staff.
The rooms are of varying sizes with unique decor. The beds are large and comfortable and the en suites, though compact, provide modern facilities. The lounge/bar/ reception area is pleasantly decorated and the dining room peacefully decorated, where a delicious breakfast menu is served. The hotel is situated in a side street, a few yards from the promenade and a short walk from Brighton Pier.
The owner/manager, Kerry is exceptionally warm, friendly, helpful and welcoming as are the whole team of staff. Nothing is too much trouble and all services are delivered to a very high standard.
Blanch House has very much become our destination of choice when visiting Brighton. Highly Recommended!
“Good quality small boutique hotel”
Stayed 2 nights for a conference. Arrived late by car about 2100. Struggled to find a parking place near the hotel so parked in a disabled bay after 20 minutes driving around. Had to move car at the crack of Dawn to avoid the wardens! Would advise arriving earlier by car or come by train.
Hotel welcome was very warm despite late arrival. The bar was great for a nightcap and pre dinner drink. Stayed in the Legacia room. Great bed and bathroom but the furnishings in the room were a bit tired. My wife struggled to find flat surfaces to put out her girlie creams and potions. She also said the light was poor for doing her make up. That said we both loved the room and it was a good size.
The breakfast was tasty with a good selection. The full English breakfast was cooked well (no grease). Great staff and very helpful and friendly owner. Would stay again. Be warned it is a little pricey for what you get.
“Working again in Brighton!”
Stayed at Blanch House again for a working weekend at Brighton & Hove Food Festival it was lovely to be welcomed back and the hotel lived up to expectations clean and comfortable. Only small disappointment was the length of time it took to service breakfast but it tasted delicious.
Very friendly staff and eager to help as soon as we arrived our bags were carried to our room, the location is excellent to walk into Brighton. The only downside is finding somewhere to park especially as it was Bank holiday. The room was comfortable but quite small and bathroom very compact.
Breakfast lovely and waiter very helpful . We would recommend to friends and definitely stay again if we were in the area.
“Lovely Stay, Perfect Location”
Have just returned from a 2 night break in Brighton. Chose this bed & breakfast from its wonderful reviews. We were not disappointed.
It is set in a perfect position just up a side road off the seafront, an easy walk to the pier, Lanes etc. We were lucky enough to get a parking space in the same street, so there the car stayed for the entire time. Permits are bought at the b & b. for £9.50 for 24 hours.
We were welcomed by a very friendly Kerry and Lauren, who throughout our stay were continually helpful, supplying us with maps and information. Its nice to have a lounge with a bar in a b&b, and with a drink were supplied with nuts or yummy home made cheese straws.
We stayed in Alice which was on the first floor. A pretty cosy room that had everything you needed. Loved the home made biscuits supplied too. Breakfast was very good, all cooked to order, a little wait but worth it. The jams were especially good and great poached eggs.
Would definitely stay here again.
I had a 1-night stay and enjoyed it very much. The location is great within easy reach of everything. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Cosy rooms and delicious cooked breakfast to your taste make your stay here highly enjoyable. Thanks a lot, guys!
“Nice location, fantastic hosts”
We just stayed two nights in the Blanch House. This place is just more than a simple B&B, the reception room is also a very cosy bar, where you can also have a nice and relaxing afternoon tea. The breakfast room downstairs is comparably large and very cosy as well.
All the rooms have different designs, which are also reflected by their name. We had “Sakura”, which came with a really beautiful design of rose wallpaper in black and red as well as black and red pillows. The room is absolutely fine English average size with a nice bathroom. Everything was really clean.
Overall, this would definitely be a good place, close to the sea – but what makes it a fantastic must-stay are the wonderful, welcoming and friendly hosts. They always gave some advice what to do or where to have dinner, you felt welcome and cared of all the time. The breakfast (freshly prepared English breakfast with a small juice, pastry, cake and cereal buffet) was just fantastic as well.
The only minor bad fact is that it might be hard to find a parking lot around. The hotel does offer you parking permits, which are valid for a certain Brighton area (“Zone C”), but this could lead to a certain walking distance to your car… We were quite lucky though in that.
Overall, I can just really recommend this place. As I would love to come to Brighton again one day (lovely city), I would definitely try to find a spot in the Blanch House again!
We had a two night stay in this hotel last week. The proprietor and staff were very friendly and helpful. Parking in Brighton can be very tricky but we were provided with a free map on which they highlighted the permitted parking areas for use with permits and we were able to conveniently buy parking permits at the hotel.
Breakfasts were very good with a wide choice.
We stayed in the Moroccan room, which was authentic and took us back to a past stay in a riad in Marakesh, however if we return to Blanch House we would want a bigger room with more horizontal surfaces.
Overall good value for money.
“Above and Beyond”
Kerry was absolutely fantastic and really went above and beyond to make my sister and I’s stay in Brighton enjoyable. We were very fortunate to be upgraded to a themed room on our arrival (which had gorgeous decor and was very spacious) and devoured the home made cookies left for us!
The facilities were luxurious and the breakfast selection incomparable. It was quiet inside, yet so close to the hustle and bustle of Brighton.
Compared to other places I had seen advertised for a similar price, this seemed by far to be the best value for money and I wasn’t disappointed!
I would love to return with my partner for a romantic stay next time. The bath was incredible!
“Not just another B&B”
Having booked for Pride we set about booking our temp home for the weekend, one year in advance!
I chose Blanch House as the rooms looked comfortable, and for its location. Plus their prices for Pride Weekend had not been tripled as most other places in the area. The moment we arrived we were treated as though we were in a 5 star hotel. In fact I have stayed in a few where the service and standards do not come up to this place.
We were upgraded to the top room due to a booking mix up, almost double the original room price. Nice airy room. Very well decorated with a large bathroom. Home made shortbread and chocolate biscuits, water etc. all in place but you are paying for it! It’s not cheap to stay here but it is also excellent quality and you do not get the feeling that you have been ripped off.
Drinks at the bar are reasonable, we had 2 bottles of wine one night and the prices were fair. The breakfast is beyond good value, highest quality foods, you have to wait so be warned, take a paper or something to read, why, because all ingredients are fresh and cooked to order. You roll out of breakfast and will need a walk.
If you are unfit or have any problems please tell them when you book. It’s a bit of a climb to the higher rooms but that’s how these building were built!
The best thing about Blanch is Josie! She is superwoman! Don’t be fooled by her flamboyant nature, the pole-dancing at breakfast as she delivers your tea! They way she carries a whole set of cases at one time with no trouble, (turns out she plays rugby). She is the Mr Humphries of Blanch. She can be on call at the bar at midnight then up for breakfast at 8.00 but she still has a wonderful way about her that would make you return. Kerry, she is an asset, I hope you reward her well!
In all, stay here but you will need extra pennies.
We will go back on our next trip to Brighton.
A friend booked us into the hotel for an overnight stay in Brighton. Our room (Snowstorm) was fantastic as was the rest of the hotel.
The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and they make you feel at home. The breakfast was also fantastic and I now wish we had stayed for dinner…
I would love to come and stay again.
Very clean, quirky, and very friendly. Thank you to Josie for a great chat and being really helpful. I don’t normally eat breakfast but I did. It was very nice , hot , and served efficiently. Room check out was paid back, they didn’t rush you to vacate the room.
“An excellent place to stay”
If you’re going to Brighton this is a really nice place to stay. They are all friendly and have really comfortable beds where I got an awesome nights rest!
It is situated very near Brighton pier which is an added bonus.
I highly recommend this hotel.
This is why you should consider staying here:
– close to city centre but quiet enough not to hear any noise
– down a side road opposite the beach
– 5 mins walk to Concorde 2
– very friendly and attentive staff
– relaxed atmosphere
– clean & tidy room with nice décor (stayed in Sakura)
– a good alternative to chain hotels in the same price bracket
– excellent choice of breakfast – had the full English option
Kerry’s welcome was warm and genuine and it was evident that he and his team take pride in the quality of service they provide. (Also loved the shortbread in the tin)
“We Have a Winner”
This hotel proves that small is beautiful. Arrived with friends on a very busy weekend when the hotel was full. Despite being busy the service was exceptional. Coffee and homemade biscuits were served as we checked in, and Kerry made us feel we were the only guests in the hotel.The food was excellent and the rooms were super. We were looked after by Josie in the champagne bar which was a joy to come back to after a busy day.
Overall an excellent experience and a reason in its own right to visit Brighton.
“A Little Gem”
We had a wonderful time in Brighton at the Blanch House hotel for 3 days, 24th July.
We were very lucky to have very hot weather, so glad we bought a fan with us for the room too!
Parking was well explained by Siony and we found a spot on the next street. Our room was the Perrier Jouet which was equipped with champagne on ice on arrival and much bigger than in the pictures.
There are plenty of bistro restaurants round the back streets : 24 Georges and Sam’s are definitely worth a visit. Have a walk down the main road down to Hove to see the lovely buildings and back streets to the shops. The marina is like a concrete jungle but not as bad once you are near the shops, ok for a quick visit on the train.
We found a lovely pub called the Fountain and had a cocktail in Betty La Las.
Nothing was ever too much trouble, extra water, pillows, Champagne kept cold, places to visit, and kindness shown when our daughter was taken ill. A couple of shelves next to the bath could be an idea, as with a roll top bath there’s nowhere to put your shampoo etc.
The breakfast was perfect and had a fresh fruit salad and melt in the mouth cake each day. A massive thanks to Kerry and his team for looking after us it made our first stay in Brighton extra special and shall return again one year soon.
“Hotel Excellent, Service Excellent, Stay Excellent !!”
If you want to relax and have personal service second to none then Blanch House is for you. Nothing was too much trouble for Kerry, Jeremy and their team.
We were made to feel welcome from start to finish and it was a pleasure staying at their hotel. The room was very comfortable with air conditioning and the breakfast each morning was excellent and set us up for the days activities.
Great location with easy access to all of the main areas of Brighton.
We look forward to staying again.
“What a GEM”
I’m not usually one to write a review but I was moved to make an exception for this exquisite hotel.
The welcome we received when we arrived was so warm and inviting and really set the tone for the rest of our stay. Having met one of the owners, it was clear to see that a great deal of care and attention has gone into this lovely place. The rooms are amazing, spotlessly clean and very cosy. The breakfast is first class (most important!!) In fact, when making a list of things we would have liked to take with us, it included: the funky, retro lampshade, the wallpaper, the wonderful shower, the bar, and the charming owner we met and had a chat with.
Thank you, very, very much. We will definitely find an excuse to come and see you again.
“Pride 2014, a perfect weekend”
On our arrival we were greeted by Kerry who offered to help us with our bags and provided us with a Brighton guide and a map upon which he marked all of the possible parking places (we found a space immediately and close by which was great considering the Pride celebrations were well under way).
The bar and reception area was welcoming and beautifully presented.
We stayed in the Moroccan room, the bed was huge, the decor was fabulous and the home made biscuits were a nice touch. There was plenty of room for our clothes and plenty of room for two people to get ready in the morning without tripping over each other. Air conditioning was available and very welcome as it was a scorcher this weekend! A beautiful room.
Breakfast was lovely, the dining room was great, you could help yourself to fruit, croissants and juice and the staff we very accommodating, tea, coffee, water and juice were served promptly and the breakfast menu had plenty of choice, vegetarian English, Full English, pancakes with or without bacon etc.
We will definitely visit again as was such a pleasant stay and about a minute walk to the seafront and maybe 10 minutes walk to the pier and the centre of Brighton!
“Pride 2014 – Fantastic Place!”
Completely welcoming hotel in one of the side streets off the sea front. Blanch House is very clean and nothing is too much trouble. We stayed for two very relaxing nights. Air con was available in our room. Home made biscuits are replenished every day with tea and coffee. Breakfast was varied and plentiful. I recommend the pancakes and syrup.
We will definitely be returning. Super friendly home from home.
“Perfect location, perfect owners”
First trip to Brighton, booked Blanch House based on pictures and previous reviews.
Glad to say it was absolutely perfect. The owner Kerry was helpful from the very off, and extremely polite and easy to have a conversation with.
The bed in the room was fantastic-ly comfortable, the breakfast/dining bar had a lovely atmosphere and its location exactly what we wanted. Very close to the sea-front and bars/restaurants but far enough away not to hear any noise.
Their employee Josie was very helpful in booking us a taxi to the wedding venue, as well as being accommodating to have a chat with me when I wanted one more night-cap in their lovely bar area before heading to bed.
The breakfast menu had anything we could want, and was done to an extremely good standard.
Chosen breakfast 1st morning – fry-up, 2nd – smoked salmon with scrambled eggs. Top notch on both accounts.
Without a doubt if we ever go Brighton again I will look to book at The Blanch House as our first option.
My wife and I both felt very relaxed and could not ask more for somewhere to stay for a few nights.
“Perfect stay at Blanch House, Brighton”
I took my 16 year old daughter to Brighton, and chose Blanch House based on its good reviews.
We were greeted by the very friendly and helpful owner, who showed us to our room. The hotel including the room were spotless.
I found the location great, easy to find, very close to sea, pier, and a short (10 minute walk to the lanes).
There was a good choice of breakfast, which was served in a bright spacious room.
What a wonderful place. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful – very knowledgeable about the local area and more than willing to help with whatever you need.
The location is great – just a short stroll from the pier. Some of the rooms are small but very comfortable with air conditioning. The rooms are all themed and individually decorated and the breakfast is fantastic.
Never visited Brighton and struggled to find a suitable place for me and my 14 year old daughter until I spotted Blanch House. It was perfect in every way possible: perfect location, parking was the best price I could find. The service was all I could ask.
We stayed in Sakura suite, bed very comfy, just like being at home.
I would definitely recommend Blanch House and would definitely go back.
My only very tiny comment would be could do with some background music at breakfast but that’s just my personal opinion. Thank you Blanch House.
“Great stay and very friendly staff”
My wife and I stayed here for a 1 night get-away. Very friendly and helpful staff, and comfy rooms – we stayed in “Snowstorm”, which had a 6ft wide bed. The breakfast was delicious and location was great – just a few minutes walk from the pier. Parking was also quite convenient for anyone driving down – you get a residents permit for a tenner which allows you to put your car anywhere in the surrounding zone
“A lovely stay thanks to Josie”
I stayed here alone on a Wednesday night – so Brighton itself was pretty quiet as was the hotel.
I was made very, very welcome by Josie, who also served my friends and I drinks in the lovely bar until after midnight. After this I slept very very well (!) in the lovely Orchid small double. It was fabulously clean and was ideal for a single (but would be snug for a couple) with a view over the rooftops to the rear so really quiet.
I stayed only for one night, but the service I received was second to none.
Lauren greeted me and welcomed me in with a smile and checked me in very quickly and showed me to my room. I stayed in the Peonie room, which was perfect, the room was immaculate and very clean. I was given a key to get in when leaving the B&B which was great as the weather was amazing when I was there, so I was in and out like a yo-yo.
I used the bar facilities, where again Lauren served me with a smile. Overall I thought it was an excellent experience, and would definitely come back again and recommend to others. Thanks.
“Stylish, comfortable and friendly”
We really enjoyed our stay here. Stylish room, well equipped, friendly staff and a truly lovely breakfast. I had porridge with banana, and daughter had pancakes with maple syrup, bacon and banana. We like our bananas!
“Weekend in Brighton”
Blanch House made our weekend in Brighton very pleasant. Their service was brilliant and the rooms delightful. The house has so much character and charm. A lovely boutique hotel. The location was great, easy to walk to all the areas of interest.
Would definitely recommend Blanch House to anyone visiting Brighton.
“Fantastic find, would definitely book again”
An absolutely fantastic find in a perfect location. Beautiful building. The service was faultless. The hotel was spotlessly clean, tidy with very friendly and helpful staff.
Would definitely recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again.
“A Great Find!”
Just returned from a 2 night stay at Blanch House. If you are looking for a fabulous place to stay in Brighton then look no further.
Beautiful property, perfect location, welcoming owner, lovely staff, great service & delicious breakfast. Ticks all the boxes for what a boutique hotel should be. Will definitely be paying a second visit.
“Bright spot in Brighton”
Excellent little hotel with fantastic service and friendly staff. We stayed in the Galaxy room found on its own at the top of the hotel. Quiet, spacious with a huge bed.
Would definitely return if coming back to Brighton.
“A perfect palace to stay”
I stayed here for a short weekend break and it turned out to be a perfect spot. Beautiful room, impeccably polite and helpful service and fantastic breakfast.
Blanch House is a beautifully restored terraced house a short walk from the beach and activity of the town. I will be going back!
Having been the first proper trip to Brighton, my other half and I wanted something that was cosy, good location and clean! This was perfect. We found this gem online after searching for hours. Its tucked away on a small road which is great for a peaceful night, but as soon as you walk out of the road you are on the seafront and the pier is a few steps away.
As soon as we arrived we were welcomed by one of the owners, Kerry, who showed us up to our room straight away, despite us arriving before check in time. Even walking up the stairs to the room I was in awe of how lovely and homely the place felt. We stayed in ‘Snowstorm’ which was lovely. Cosy, spacious and nicely decorated! Being a bit of a clean freak myself, I could not believe how clean everything was! Even the bathroom was gleaming. We had a lovely nights stay, a lovely sleep and a lovely power shower!
Breakfast in the morning was delicious. There were cereals and croissants in which you could help your self and a menu which you could order from. Scrambled eggs were the best I’d had!
The service is second to none, everyone is so polite, friendly and welcoming. You can tell the hotel has a real personal touch! I must say we were very sad to leave but at least we know when we return we’ll already have our hotel choice sorted!
“Does exactly what it says on the tin!!”
What a find. My Wife and I stayed at Blanch House for one night when we went to see Rod Stewart at the Amex Stadium – us and several thousand other 40-50 somethings!!!
From the moment we arrived and were guided to find a parking space – first voucher included in the price – it was a great experience.
Customer service is clearly at the heart of what the team at Blanch House are all about, but it was never delivered in a false or over-bearing way – just friendly, helpful and never over-familiar – just right.
Restaurants were recommended to us; best route to the Station; which bits of the famous Lanes to concentrate on. The rooms are not huge, but they don’t claim to be – they are thoughtfully designed, well-decorated and clean. Breakfast was raved about by earlier reviewers and I cannot disagree – excellent.
Overall, just a really comfortable, easy, engaging experience, we will definitely be back!!
“Lovely night and Rod Stewart”
Stayed here on 13th June for 1 night in Sakura. Nice welcome and shown to our room, we were informed that breakfast was 8:30 to 10:30.
Room was nice and cosy as described, bathroom/ shower also good. We were on the back, overlooking the pub, but we did not get back from the concert until 12:30, so no problem.
Good nights sleep, and no disturbance from the road or neighbours. Good information in the rooms for places to visit and restaurants, we ate at Harry Ramsdens, which was nice.
Good breakfast next morning with all the trimmings, this was hosted by Jeremy who was pleasant and efficient.
The concert and the accommodation were first rate.
“Oasis of calm in the centre of Brighton”
This little gem of a hotel is hidden away just moments from the town centre.
We had a tastefully decorated well appointed top floor room, including the lovely touch of home made biscuits with the tea and coffee making facilities.
The staff were polite, helpful and attentive both at check in and breakfast. We would throroughly recommend staying here if you want easy access to the hustle and bustle of the town, the beach at the end of the road but a quiet place to rest in.
The Blanch House was a great place to stay. The staff were very friendly, the rooms were clean and beautifully arranged. The overall atmosphere in the hotel was cosy. It’s just a few minutes walk from the pier and other attractions in Brighton.
It’s an ideal place to stay if you want to relax. The only thing we thought could have been better was the isolation of our room with the room just above, because we could hear the people walk above us. Meanwhile the other guests were respectful and we didn’t hear anything else.
We would certainly recommend this hotel!
“Lovely place to stay”
I chose Blanch House as it had good reviews for solo travellers and, as I was attending a conference on my own, I wanted somewhere welcoming and comfy. I was not disappointed.
I arrived before the check in time and although they had said I could leave my bag there I was shown up to my room straight away. The housekeeper had noticed that there was a small hole in the duvet cover and was changing it as I arrived and although I was happy to wait for her to finish I was ushered in and she finished changing the cover after I left.
The “cosy” room was very comfortable and clean. The shower room was compact but adequate and there were fresh towels each day even though I would have been happy to re-use them. The cups were a decent size (so many are too small) and the home made shortbread biscuits divine!
Breakfast was delicious with very generous portions. Service started at 8am and I needed to be there on the dot as everything is made to order and I had to leave by 8.30ish to get to the conference centre by 9am. That said, nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were helpful and friendly.
The hotel was quiet (apart from the seagulls, but hey this is the seaside) and a little away from the centre but was all the better for it. I would definitely stay again and next time perhaps I’ll manage to try the champagne!
We had a wonderful 2 night relaxing break. Lovely relaxing bar with great choice of wines and cocktails. Scrumptious breakfast. Friendly helpful staff. We will definitely recommend staying to friends and we are looking forward to returning hopefully soon.
“Felt like home”
After reading other reviews and having tried all sorts of varying style and standard of accommodation, Blanch House was a no brain-er.
We were not disappointed, the warm welcome, the great room, the excellent breakfast and of course the great location meant for a lovely three night stay.
Kerry and the team were great. Oh I didn’t mention the free upgrade we got on our third night from our double room to the Perrier Jouet room which was massive!
“A hidden gem”
We have stayed at Blanch House three times now and have enjoyed our stay every time!
Blanch House is located a short walk away from shops, bars, clubs and the sea front & pier. We liked it because of it’s location, tucked away in a side street but close to everything.
Blanch House is located in Atlingtonworth Street which does have on street parking but this is limited, especially on weekends. You can buy a parking permit from the hotel and park within the marked zones which are all near by. We find if parking is a problem, dropping the bags off at the hotel and then finding somewhere to park is handy.
We always receive a warm welcome and feel like you are stepping into a touch of class. Blanch House is a small boutique hotel that is beautifully furnished and very clean!
As you walk in, the dining area, bar and reception are on your left. All nicely laid out & furnished.
Each room is decorated to a different theme, we have stayed in a different room each time and been very pleased. The rooms aren’t huge but spacious enough & the bathrooms are modern and impressive.
Each room offers a hint of decadence and each bed we have slept in has been comfortable and spacious. Noise has never been a problem and we’ve always had a good night’s sleep.
Breakfast is always lovely, no complaints at all!
The owners are really nice, helpful people who go out of their way to make your stay an enjoyable one.
The prices are a competitive rate for other hotels in central Brighton. This hotel offers a touch of class and luxury above the rest which makes it our number one choice whenever we come to Brighton.
“Stay here, it’s fabulous!”
We stayed at Blanch House last week, in the Snowstorm Room and it was lovely. Gorgeous room, full of (surprisingly enough!) snowstorms! Very comfortable, lovely staff and an amazing breakfast. Great atmosphere, great location, we loved it.
Went on a recommendation from brother in law and so glad we did. A real experience.
“Best place in Brighton!”
Had a fantastic stay at Blanch House. The most friendly welcome and gorgeous hotel. Had a great nights’ sleep in a very comfy bed followed by the most scrumptious breakfast, how nice to have that included in the price. Very handy location and parked really easily outside.
Almost didn’t want to write this review as I want it to be my secret!
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here, staff very professional, friendly and helpful, breakfast was fabulous. I was attending a conference with very long sessions so it was a delight to come back and relax with a nice glass of wine.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Brighton.
“A Real Find.”
A colleague and I needed to stay over in Brighton on business. Having previously stayed at a not particularly pleasant guest house, we looked around to find a better venue whilst still being reasonably priced. I am so glad we chose Blanch House – it was everything we were looking for and more.
We received a friendly welcome, the property was spotlessly clean, the rooms are delightful with different themes in each and the beds very comfortable. There is a good range of breakfast choices – they make their own preserves to accompany the toast which are truly yummy!
This was a really homely place to stay when away from home. We have already booked in for our next trip.
Oh, and there is a bar – the cocktails are definitely worth trying!!
What a pleasure it was to stay at Blanche House. Really high standards with the professionalism you would expect from a five star hotel without being pretentious.
We stayed in the Moroccan room which was really comfortable. We certainly felt that nothing was to much trouble and we had a lot of requests for information and bookings.
The champagne cocktails were a real highlight before we headed off to try the local seafood restaurants.
You won’t be disappointed.
As a group of friends we stayed in the Blanch House for a Birthday celebration weekend. The staff offered a warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble.
The rooms are amazing, the breakfast delicious, the cocktail bar lovely and location just a few minutes walk from the pier – we would definitely stay again …highly recommended
“Weekend in Brighton”
My wife and I come down to the Brighton festival every year and we stay in a different hotel every time. Blanch House in Kemp Town is definitely one of our favourites.
We stayed in the Perrier Jouet room which is very boutique – a great comfy bed and a tranquil atmosphere which is unusual for this part of the world. Even the weird bathroom layout seemed to fit the theme.
Breakfast was delicious and all the staff were very friendly – one notch before “american service”
We liked it very much and will definitely come again.
“Friendly and relaxing”
Fantastic breakfasts, nice relaxing bar area, friendly staff. Close to the seafront too. Great place to stay. Beds superb and slept really well. Parking permits acquired by hotel for us and we were able to pay at the end. Very helpful.
“Brighton Marathon Weekend”
We were in Brighton for the marathon weekend and have stayed at Blanch House before. We enjoy staying at this hotel because nothing is too much trouble and the owners and staff are especially friendly and helpful. It is as if we have known them for years and the hotel is our number 1 choice when visiting Brighton.
Thanks again for making our weekend so enjoyable and we look forward to the next time.
“loved it,loved it,loved it !!!!!!!”
Silver wedding anniversary treat combined with a first visit to see our daughter who has just moved to Brighton. We splashed out on the Perrier Jouet suite and it did not disappoint. It was a beautiful room with a fantastic to die for bathroom. The whole hotel is SPOTLESS and well decorated and appointed.
Breakfast was amazing and served beautifully by Kerry and his VERY attentive and polite staff. You cannot stay in this hotel and not be impressed.We loved it and will be back asap.
This knocks spots off anything on the front and deserves its great reviews.
Thank you for a great stay, it was lovely.
We stayed only for one night whilst in Brighton for a concert at the Brighton Dome. We were welcomed on arrival by Kerry the owner who is positively proud of the hotel, and quite rightly so.
We stayed in the Perrier Jouet room which was lovely; a room with a very large comfy bed, a side sea view from the bay window and a lovely bathroom with both a bath and shower. Kerry had also placed some fresh flowers in the room for us, and there were also some delicious home-made biscuits!
The breakfast was the best full English we’ve had at a B&B and they obviously use top quality ingredients.
The hotel is beautifully refurbished and the staff are wonderful; when we return to Brighton this will be our first choice to come back to.
We didn’t get the opportunity to sample the food or the cocktails which all sounded delicious but would like to next time!
“Charming small hotel”
Superb small hotel in a great location, charming staff, couldn’t do enough for you!
Beautiful comfortable room we stayed in the galaxy room which was very spacious and had everything we needed. Breakfast was exceptional, obviously a great chef!
Would definitely stay here again when in Brighton.
Just got back from a one night stay at Blanch House, I cannot pick any fault with the stay. The team were really friendly and recommended me and my girlfriend restaurants and places to visit. We stayed in the poppy room, it was gorgeous, very clean and comfortable, the en-suite was fantastic as well with an excellent powerful shower! The breakfast in the morning was superb with excellent choice including vegetarian breakfast, i had a full English and my girlfriend had scrambled eggs with salmon.
Book this B&B! You will not regret it!
“Lovely B&B in Brighton”
Cannot fault this lovely B&B. Kerry and his excellent team of staff were absolutely lovely, charming, informative and caring. We felt special and spoiled. Perfect get-away for us from the stress of London.
The whole place has an air of calm professionalism without being intrusive, or rushed in any way. We loved the location tucked away on a quiet street in Kemp Town. Plenty of restaurants and bars close by, or short walk into town.
The rooms are immaculately clean and cosy with plenty of towels, robes, etc with a super, super comfy bed. There’s a little bar downstairs, if you fancy a night-cap before retiring. We wanted a quiet room and that’s what we got. The breakfasts are of superior quality, delicious and huge! Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. We’ll definitely be returning here again.
Well done, and thank you guys.
Just returned from a 2 night stay. Could not fault Blanch House at all! Kerry was absolutely lovely and goes out of his way to make your stay enjoyable.
We stayed in the orchid room, which is one of the cosy doubles. It was beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. The breakfast is also amazing and there’s plenty of it!
We had a fantastic time and will definitely be returning (though hoping to try a different room because they’re all so different).
You will not regret booking your stay at blanch house!
“A hotel to remember”
Had a wonderful time in Brighton and Blanch House just made it. Our cosy room was lovely, with attention to detail, robes, homemade biscuits which were ‘lush’. A fabulous breakfast both mornings and very attentive staff. This place is a real gem. Kerry looked after our every needs. Very comfy bed and extremely clean. Just outside the town it was situated perfectly.
Thank you for making our stay a fab one and we will definitely be back. It was very easy to book and all the staff were helpful giving us suggestions on restaurants and places to visit. Hope to go back really soon.
“Regular to Brighton – 1st of many stays at this B&B”
I booked this B&B having stayed at several reasonable B&Bs before in the centre of Brighton. The website is very helpful and accurate and although located slightly further away from the main centre it is well served by bus routes and within easy walking distance of many restaurants and pubs.
Booking is easy and check in times, by appointment, are very flexible. I arrived at 11.30am and was met by a smiling young lady with the most amazing shock of purple hair who welcomed me and showed me to my room which was ready, even at that early time. From then on, my contact with the B&B was with Josie, a multi tasking star if ever there was one. One minute receptionist, accessing any web site you needed for bus routes, maps and places to visit, the next bar tender (or should that be tenderess??!!) serving cocktails and being very pleasant company. Next morning, who should be cooking breakfast, yes Josie, a full English breakfast to thoroughly enjoy. Ably assisted by a young french waiter who was attentive and pleasant, who I have to add, also cleaned the rooms.
The room I stayed in was Sakura, which I chose as it had a bath with shower option as well. The bed was very comfortable and the room size very adequate for single occupancy. Wardrobe space was small but again ok for a short stay. Wifi is good but fades a bit as you move upstairs.
All in all, for the price, I would recommend this B&B, there are not many that boast a bar! The choice of music was smooth jazz which was very much in keeping with the style and pace of this place.
Definitely worth a visit and I will stay here again.
“A Hotel Definitely Worth Top Marks!”
Just returned from a lovely stay at Blanch House. We stayed in the Renaissance room which was described as “cosy” however it was bigger than I anticipated it would be. The room was provided with dressing gowns and towels that were bigger than a postage stamp!
There were home made biscuits on arrival and being shown to our room was a nice touch. The breakfast was delicious and the staff could not do enough for us. The Kemp Town location was perfect and nice to be so close to the sea.
My only minor complaint (if not more of a suggestion) is that the only accessible mirror was in the bathroom which meant that it could only be used by one person at a time which is tricky when you’re getting ready for a night out and the flex of the hairdryer didn’t reach so I couldn’t see what I was doing, but that’s easily fixed by providing an additional mirror!
All in all, I cannot recommend it enough and will be booking with Blanch House for our next trip in the summer.
“A real little gem in the heart of this vibrant city”
My daughter and I have just returned from a three night stay at Blanch House. What a lovely place! Everything, from the welcome on arrival to check out was classy and made the stay special. We stayed in Harlequin room. It wasn’t big but beautifully decorated with an enormous, extremely comfortable bed. The attention to detail, from home made biscuits in the room each day to free wifi was fantastic. Don’t book this room if you want a good outlook but it didn’t bother us.
The breakfasts were very good with a good range of pastries and fruit on the buffet and an excellent menu. The cocktail bar was comfortable and I can highly recommend the Blanch House Raspberry Royale.
The hotel is ideally situated in vibrant Kemp Town. There were so many good restaurants in the locality. All the ones we tried, on Kerry’s recommendation were excellent.
All in all Kerry and his well trained team made our stay in Brighton memorable. I will certainly return. My husband, who is extremely jealous of the fact he missed out on this trip, already planning our next visit.
“Great night at Blanch House”
My daughter and I have just got home from a spontaneous stay at this little gem in Kemp Town. Great cocktails, outstanding service and a comfy bed. What else could you ask for ? Breakfast which exceeded our expectations.
Thanks to Josie who made us feel very special.
Would highly recommend to all.
We will be back soon.
Thanks Sarah and Natalia.
“The Only Place to stay in Brighton”
This is the 3rd time we have stayed at the Blanch House and can’t wait to go back again!
We stayed in the Perrier Jouet room which is beautiful, a huge chandelier, wonderful bathroom and the biggest bed!
As always Kerry & his team were warm and welcoming, and the breakfast is amazing.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Blanch House to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend in Brighton.
My sister Heather and I recently stayed at Blanch House in order to complete the Brighton Marathon.
Kerry, Jeremy and their team were simply marvelous, bending over backwards to accommodate special runners’ needs; such as an early poached egg on toast breakfast (despite the chef starting later) and organizing one of the best sports massages we have ever had afterwards in the privacy of our room. Not only that, but they threw a lovely drinks party with free Prosecco in the evening in their lovely bar, which was great fun, as a few other guests had run the marathon.
Our room was fine – clean, comfortable beds etc and luckily for us on the lower mezzanine floor (not too many steps the morning after running 26.2 miles!)
Highly recommended classy little boutique hotel. We will be back.
“Beautiful. Boutique. Brighton.”
My husband and I booked in to Blanch House on a whim one sunny Sunday in March and we are so glad we did. From booking, to checking in, to drinks in the bar, to breakfast, to checking out, everyone was friendly, polite and welcoming. We were given a parking permit and managed to find a space not 2 minutes from the Hotel, check in was smooth and hassle free and we were shown to our gorgeous room, Snowstorm, which is every bit as stunning as the photos!
Blanch House itself is a beautiful building, very well presented, with the right mix of luxury and homeliness. We felt comfortable and welcome from the moment we walked through the door. Its a short stroll to the seafront and shops, so in a brilliant location.
We took a recommendation from the very helpful book that was left in our room and went for dinner at Chilli Pickle which was delicious, but decided to have a few drinks in the hotel bar beforehand which was really nice, I would recommend! On the walk back we stopped off in a couple of pubs and watched some bands.
Breakfast was really tasty, served in a sunny room with the other guests. We had a nice chat with the owner while we ate and we left the hotel feeling refreshed and happy.
Blanch House is stunning, the perfect boutique hotel. We will definitely be back!
“Elegance and comfort in Brighton”
We stayed here for four nights and had a warm welcome from Kerry, lovely room, fantastic breakfast and some of the friendliest and most attentive staff we have ever experienced.
Really helpful advice on where to have dinner and afternoon tea.
“Excellent venue and good customer service.”
We arrived at Blanch house, a trip organised by my Husband as a surprise impulse treat.
On arrival my Husband checked in and went to check on parking regulations. Kerry the owner of he Hotel came to the car to meet me which was a nice touch and helped us with our parking permit.
The Perrier Jouet room that my Husband booked was a fantastic room, with a stunning chandelier and super bathroom.
The hotel has been finished with keen attention to detail. The customer service was so friendly and welcoming. We had a great overnight stay in Brighton and were close to the sea-front and all the key places to see and experience.
Fantastic break, would recommend to others and was so nice for a treat.
“Superb venue for a special birthday celebration”
What a superb place our friends choose to invite us all to a special celebration .
We arrived to have fizz in the very atmospheric bar with nibbles, this set the scene for the rest of the evening.
We were escorted down to the dining room where we were served impeccably by the staff the courses of the meal. With precision they gave guests exactly the right dishes that they had pre ordered, and this was with movement between courses!
With 40 guests the food was cooked to perfection in terms of taste and temperature. Then seamlessly the room was transformed for dancing whilst we returned to the bar.
Thoroughly recommend Blanch House for quality of food, wine and service.
“Welcoming, fun & bijou”
Great weekend, all the staff were friendly & they couldn’t do enough to make our stay comfortable & relaxed. Breakfast was delicious, don’t skip on that. Location was perfect, a short walk away from the town, but close enough to all the restaurants & bars.
“Great hotel, highly recommend”
Stayed in the Snow Storm room, really nice room, very clean and furnished well. Staff were really friendly and helpful and great location. Would definitely recommend. Breakfast was really good and the cocktails in the bar are excellent too.
“A very pleasant surprise.”
We had a very relaxing holiday in this lovely boutique hotel with beautiful, clean, comfortable rooms, scrumptious breakfast and fantastic friendly service.
Highly recommend this one.
“Couldn’t be happier!!”
Needed a hotel for a weekend stay in Brighton. Spent hours trying to find one and couldn’t be more pleased I picked the Blanch House Hotel. Very friendly staff and the room was beautiful. Good location as well as not to far from front.
If you’re not sure on which out of the many hotels available in Brighton to pick, i couldn’t recommend this one enough! (plus you get tea and homemade biscuits).
My husband and I stayed here last weekend and really enjoyed our stay. The staff are really excellent – friendly and helpful. It’s in a really great location, just a short walk from Brighton center but far enough away from the noise at night.
We stayed in the Renaissance room which is a little small but perfectly adequate for a couple of nights. I really liked the decor of the entire place, and would much prefer here to some of the more central old fashioned hotels on the seafront.
I would definitely recommend staying here, but perhaps go for one of the larger rooms, particularly if you have a lot of stuff. Breakfast was great, and you definitely won’t leave hungry.
All together a great place, in a great area, with super staff and I look forward to returning!
We spent a wonderful night here and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Beautiful, clean room, nice big comfortable bed and excellent customer service. Breakfast was tasty and had a variety of options.
Would definitely recommend a visit.
I stayed at blanch house for one night after finding it on Trip Advisor and I was not disappointed! The room (Alice) was nicely decorated, clean and comfortable with plenty of tea and coffee provided. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the breakfast was delicious and I wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again.
Couldn’t have been more happy!
Stayed for one night in the beautifully decorated Alice room which was perfect for our short term needs. The service from the hotel staff was excellent and incredibly friendly making us feel very welcome. To top it off, the breakfast was absolutely delicious.
I will be recommending this place to my friends and will definitely stay again next time I’m in Brighton.
“Excellent romantic break”
I treated my boyfriend to a weekend away in Brighton for Valentines Day and Blanch House was perfect for it – lovely bedroom (Snowstorm) and a very friendly reception.
We enjoyed a gin & tonic in the hotel bar before heading out on the Saturday evening, and Sunday morning we had the biggest luxury of all – breakfast in bed – and not just your average breakfast!
We would definitely stay again, and recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing break in Brighton within walking distance of everywhere.
“Beautiful, elegant and charming. Just what you need from a stay.”
I’ve been meaning to write a review on this hotel for a while now. I stayed with my girlfriend back at the beginning of the year as a present.
I’m a bit of a hotel or B&B snob so finding one I could not give enough credit to is rare but Blanch House was a winner in my eyes.
It’s in a good location with 100 m to the sea front the only reason I didn’t give 5 stars for location the walk into the town centre was maybe 15 mins and when its pouring with rain its not a pleasant 15 mins.
Met by one of the owners who helped point out a parking space and offered any help with bags, a charming man who made us very welcome. The room was splendid, very clean, tidy and fantastic bath and shower! Left very refreshed the next day especially after a superb breakfast.
I struggle to fault the place other than our walk into town but be a pleasure to visit again. Thanks.
“A lovely valentine present from my husband”
My husband booked this lovely hotel for Valentine’s night and it could not have been more perfect I cannot wait to return to our Snowstorm haven. The owner was extremely welcoming and his staff are a credit to him. We would highly recommend this Brighton gem.
My wife and I stayed for five nights in the Perrier-Jouët room, which was perfect.
We cannot speak highly enough of the Blanch House team as they helped us, above & beyond what might normally be expected, to overcome an unforeseen and serious problem.
That aside, the entire Blanch House experience in regard to comfort, quality, friendliness, breakfast… was outstanding.
Please believe all of the ‘excellent’ ratings on this website because the hotel really is that good.
“Great Place to Stay!!”
My partner and I stayed for 1 night (a Saturday) at the end of January for our anniversary. I booked through Lastminute.com a week or so before. We arrived in Brighton early and although our room wasn’t available, we bought a parking permit, parked a couple of streets away and wandered round town. We were checked in by a friendly receptionist later that afternoon. Our room (Moroccan) was lovely – small bathroom but otherwise perfect. We had a couple of “smashing” cocktails before heading out later. Breakfast was superb. We will definitely be back!!
“Lovely Friendly Welcome”
I contacted Blanch house to arrange a two night stay as a birthday celebration for my wife. Josie and Siony were extremely helpfull via e mails in booking evening meals in local restaurants and arranging flowers in the room on our arrival. I really did feel nothing was too much trouble for them.
We arrived early at 11am in Brighton and popped in to see if we could get the parking vouchers that they had kindly also arranged for us. We were met by Josie who said if we waited 5 minutes our room was ready. The room (Legacia) was superb. Huge bedroom with a Kingsize bed and Art Deco furniture and a shower and seperate bath. All spotlessly clean.We had drinks every evening in the bar and the breakfast was excellent and freshly prepared. We will definitely be going back to stay again.
The staff were very helpful,and friendly, nothing too much trouble. A very good location with easy on street parking with a permit supplied by the hotel at a very reasonable rate.
The room was fantastic,very comfortable and very clean, as was the rest of the hotel. The breakfast was excellent with a good selection available, a very good start to the day. There is a very friendly and relaxing atmosphere to this professionally run hotel.
We will be certain to book the Blanch House on our next visit to Brighton. Thank you all.
“Perfect Wedding Venue and Hotel”
We recently had our wedding at Blanch House and can’t praise them highly enough on how perfect every detail was and how fabulous, stress free and memorable they helped make our day.
We had a shortlist of venues but the others quickly disappeared off of it as soon as we saw Blanch House and met Kerry.
Kerry was amazing in all our dealings with him, so friendly and helpful. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble and he was certainly organised and on top of everything with good advice and suggestions.
Everything was considered and planned to perfection with Kerry and his team making everything go extremely smoothly.
The food element of the wedding was very important to us. We know good food and Sean didn’t disappoint.
Canapés, starters, mains, deserts – and even the bread rolls, biscuits in the room and breakfast the next morning – were all faultless and delicious.
I lost count of how many people said how good the meal was and “best dauphinoise potatoes ever” was a theme. The venison was cooked perfectly and I want that Peanut Butter parfait recipe.
Josie and Seanie managed the evening expertly in an effortlessly attententive but not overbearing style. Everyone said how professional, friendly and polite they were. The couple of dietary requirements were easily dealt with without fuss.
The bar and Belle époque suite are brilliant and suited us perfectly. The bedrooms are excellent too, we chose Legaccia and loved it other guests said the same of their rooms. I’m surprised we woke up as the beds were so comfy but I’m glad we did or we would have missed an epic breakfast.
Thank you Kerry, Josie, Sean and Seany we had an amazing wedding at Blanch House that people are still complementing us on.
“We’ll be back”
Thanks to Trip Advisor, my husband and I came to Blanch House on a romantic but spur of the moment break. We were not disappointed! The staff were so lovely and helpful, the room was small but cosy and comfortable. The breakfast was so amazing we took pictures & sent them to friends on Facebook. We had a fantastic couple of days in Brighton, the Hotel was within walking distance of the shops, the beach and surrounded by vibrant bistros, pubs, clubs & restaurants. Hours after we had checked out we found that our car had broken down and after a very expensive call to the AA to get us home, the staff welcomed us in for warmth, tea & sympathy. We will definitely be returning to Blanch House in the near future and can highly recommend it to all.
“Fantastic Once Again!”
We had another great stay here in December. 2 Nights this time, really relaxing. We came down for a concert and just fancied staying that extra night and were glad we did…
…We are already planning our next visit in May!
Thanks again everyone, the staff here are brilliant!
“Friendly Staff, Great Breakfast”
I was in Brighton for a business trip. Blanch House was very central (yes, Brighton is not that big at all). The staff and the owner were very friendly and respectful. I started each day with a wonderful breakfast served in the beautiful dining room.
“Romantic New Year Celebration”
We passed a wet and windy New Year at Blanch House. Hospitality was top class, the room we stayed in was very comfy – just as it looks on the website. Totally lived up to expectations from start to finish. Ken & Hilde
“Perfect for a wedding”
We chose Blanch House for our Wedding in November 2013 and we are so glad we did. Kerry and his team looked after us and our guests so well, and everything was perfect, the rooms, the food and the management of the day overall. We can’t recommend them enough, thank you for making our day so special.
“A Very Special Place”
We recently stayed at Blanch House to celebrate my birthday. We were made very welcome by Kerry and his team. We stayed in the Galaxy Suite which was roomy with a large en-suite. The breakfast room is relaxing and welcoming, not forgetting the lovely breakfast of course. Can highly recommend Blanch House for your stay in Brighton.
We stayed for one night on 30th November. Warm welcome, trendy environment, doesn’t stand on ceremony but customer care is at the forefront. We stayed in the Harlequin room. Huge bed was welcome. Compact room, very ’boutique’ decor – individual, quirky and bespoke. Small en-suite but all functional and well maintained. Delicious cocktails. The star of our stay was the breakfast. Don’t miss it, whatever you do! It was absolutely delicious. Cooked to order (so get a coffee in to help you with the wait), but so worth waiting for. Would recommend.
“Lovely place to stay”
This is a great little hotel. Our room was warm, wacky and really comfortable, a huge bed. Flowers in the room and in the lobby outside. Lovely attentive staff who couldn’t have been more kind. Terrific breakfast. Thoroughly recommended.
Great value for money and a lovely welcome and stay at Blanch house – loved the biscuit tin and shortbread, a lovely touch.
Room was quiet, clean and very comfortable.
No gripes and even got lucky with parking right outside the guest house!
I would recommend you try some of the cocktails in the bar if you visit – the Absinthe cocktail was the bomb!
“Review on visit”
The Management and staff could not do enough to make your stay more pleasant.
The rooms are individual and fitted out to a high standard.
Breakfast was excellent, a good choice of hot and cold served with real friendliness.
Could not fault the hotel.
Kerry, his partner and team are amazing. They welcome you (not too gushing, just right) they transport you to your room, all are delightful, charming, you run out of adjectives.
We were there for our daughters wedding. If there was anything they could have done I can’t think of it. The catering was excellent, the staff are an absolute pleasure. The attention to detail meticulous. If I was going to be married again it would be here. We will definitely stay when in Brighton.
Why would you go anywhere else?
Adrian & Vivien
“Didn’t want to leave”
We have just come back from 2 nights at Blanch House and had the best time. We had a very warm welcome from the lady at reception who showed us to our room and right away we felt very relaxed.
The room was lovely (the legacia), the bed was huge! and the bathroom was amazing. We went to a pub nearby (sidewinders) which was really good fun with a band playing.
We woke up the next day after a very sound sleep and went down to the best breakfast. The staff were really friendly and there was a great selection of cereal, fruit, pastries, juices as well as cooked breakfast. We had the full English and pancakes and both were beautiful.
There was a lovely atmosphere at the hotel, the staff were so friendly and helpful, the food was amazing and the room was perfect. We had the best mini-break here and would definitely stay again, we did not want to leave! Thank you so much for making it a lovely stay.
“Great night away”
We decided to stay at Blanch house after reading the many fantastic reviews and we weren’t disappointed. We arrived early but they were able to let us into our room after only a few minutes. Whilst waiting we had a nice chat with the owner, Kerry, who was happy to help us with dinner reservations etc. The room was clean and decorated beautifully and the homemade biscuits were an added bonus. Breakfast was delicious with a great choice of cooked, continental, pancakes etc. The hotel is only a few minutes walk away from the shops and just off the seafront. We will definitely be staying there again.
“Perfect location for a perfect Boutique Hotel”
We first stayed at Blanch House in April 2012 after randomly searching for hotels with themed rooms in Brighton. To cut a long story short we stayed, we loved it and would now not stay anywhere else.
Based on this experience we then chose Blanch House to host our civil ceremony on the 26th October 2013 and they got it spot on. We had exclusive use of the hotel for the day and any guest that wasn’t staying with us wanted too see the rooms.
The rooms are exceptionally clean with complimentary tea/coffee/water and each room is themed but just the right amount so it is not tacky. Kerry listened too what we wanted for the day and it was decorated to perfection. The food is exquisite with generous portions and the full english breakfast is exactly what you need to cure the night before!!
The staff are so dedicated and friendly that we wish they were our friends and it makes us sad too leave and go home.
All in all Blanch House is our home away from home and perfect for any function and if you enjoy the quiet stay that’s within walking distance from the hustle and bustle of the town centre.
I booked Blanch House after a recommendation from a local company. My wife and I were very happy with all aspects of Blanch House, great location, fantastic rooms and great staff, especially Kerry the owner, helpful with everything.
Also the amazing breakfast, especially the salmon and scrambled eggs.
Would definitely use again, and recommend to anyone. Overall a great place to stay. Just may go in summer next time! Nicer walk on the sea front then.
We stayed at Blanch House for the weekend at the beginning of November to visit our daughter and see Brighton. Kerry Turner and his lovely staff were friendly and helpful. The place is spotless and beautifully designed. We’ll go there next time!
“Fabulous Birthday Celebrations”
I can highly recommend this lovely Hotel for a stay in Brighton. It is beautifully decorated with all the bedrooms being very individual, I stayed in Legacia which was divine. The bar is a great way to start the evening, the staff are all very helpful and jolly, and breakfast was a big hit and very needed ! Siony & the team couldn’t do enough for us in terms of advising on where to dine on Saturday evening, booking the restaurant, providing maps and generally offering really great advice on where to go.
Thoroughly fabulous and we will return, thank you very much.
Stayed at the end of October, the night of the storm. After a hard days walking on the Downs, battling the winds, it was a real pleasure to stay at Blanch House…
Excellent staff- I know most reviews say that, but they really were friendly.
Only downside is finding parking, but a few minutes search found a space.
Just returned from a two night stay at Blanch House and have to say we are both very impressed with the service and quality received during our stay.
The Peony room which we stayed in was beautifully decorated and the overall appearance of the hotel was excellent. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, ensuring our stay was enjoyable. Breakfast was delicious and had a great selection on the menu. The location is ideal as it’s a very swift walk into the centre of town.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we’ll definitely visit again in the future.

“Wedding day bliss”
My Partner Jo and I celebrated our civil partnership at Blanch House on 11th October 2013.
This was the first potential venue we viewed and we fell in love. We didn’t bother with any other venues because Blanch House was everything we wished for.
From the early planning stages right through to the big day, Kerry, Josie and the staff of this gorgeous hotel did absolutely everything they could to accommodate us.
The Belle Epoque suite is intimate and beautiful and accommodated our 40 guests well for our wedding breakfast and the champagne and cocktail bar was the perfect setting for a party.
The food was delicious and the wine list was excellent. Nothing was overpriced and we felt that we had extremely good value for our money.
We stayed in the Perrier Jouet suite which had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in and with its stunning elegance and tasteful decor, made a great setting for some photographs of myself and my wife which are beautiful.
Many of our guests stayed at Blanch house in one of the gorgeous themed rooms and they have all said how welcome they felt and how lovely the hotel was. The breakfast was excellent and Jo and I came away having had the most perfect day of our lives.
We have nothing but praise for the team at Blanch House who made sure that everything went smoothly and that our guests wanted for nothing.
Thank you Kerry for helping us to have the most fabulous wedding day!! We will most certainly be popping round for cocktails!
“Very high standards of service and quality”
Just returned from my second stay at this excellent hotel. After a long day travelling on business from Yorkshire, I am always really made to feel very welcome. Kerry and the staff at Blanch House go that extra bit further to ensure your stay is perfect. Every part of the hotel is impeccably presented. Kerry has a real eye for detail and this shows in everything, even down to the small detail in the rooms.
The location is adjacent to the seafront and perfectly positioned for venturing out into Brighton. Without hesitation I would heartily recommend this hotel to all. Looking forward to my next visit.
My daughter and her partner chose this hotel for the ceremony and subsequent meal to celebrate their civil ceremony. What an inspired choice! From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble for the friendly and tireless staff. The themed rooms were amazing and beautifully decorated (every wedding guest who was not staying there insisted on a tour of the rooms!) and the bar/ reception area is lovely.
The food was of an extremely high standard and the choices for breakfast were excellent.
I can’t wait to go back again for a weekend break, and would have no hesitation in recommending Blanch House to anyone.
This is such lovely boutique hotel in an accessible part of Brighton. The rooms are just stunning, I was in the Moroccan, and fell in love with it. Even the cosy rooms give a feeling of quality and comfort. Totally lush!
We had a business meeting there and the staff, especially Kerry and Jo couldn’t do enough for us. This is our second team event at Blanch House, which just speaks volumes, as we only came back because they are so good! And it didn’t feel like a business meeting, I would most definitely return with my husband for a romantic weekend, and would wholly recommend it to anyone looking for something special in the great city of Brighton, but also affordable.
“Only one word to describe this hotel, AWESOME!”
This was my second visit to Blanch house & although I had booked for the harlequin room, was upgraded to the Legacia Room! A fantastic Art Deco themed room, not only was it decorated fantastically but the bathroom has a free standing bath with legs!!
Not only did being upgraded to this room make for a fantastically relaxing treat of a holiday but the friendly, helpful staff made for a really comfortable holiday! The staff could not be more helpful, they make you feel incredibly welcome & nothing is too much bother!
I shall definitely return to Blanch house next year when I visit Brighton again as I could not fault anything about this wonderful boutique hotel! A pleasure to stay there, great breakfasts & fantastic cocktails!!
Would recommend this hotel to anyone & can’t wait to stay here again to explore my favourite seaside English city!!! A big thank you & praise to all of the staff for a great holiday!!!!
There is a lot to recommend Blanch House; the staff are extremely friendly and accommodating, the rooms are lovely (they do mean cosy when the say cosy) and the breakfast is excellent. Great place to spend a few days in Brighton and superbly located in Kemp Town which has more than enough in itself to recommend it. There are plenty shops, bars and eateries within 5 mins of the hotel but central Brighton is no more than 10-15 mins walk for the reasonably fit.
Parking is on the street and there were enough spaces when we arrived although that could get tight in peak season; the charge for 24 hours is £9.50 and the hotel will supply one to you. I recommend parking first leaving someone with the car (as the Parking Wardens are always lurking) then pop into the hotel for the ticket.
“Friendly, Welcoming. Lovely Short Break.”
Beautiful boutique hotel, stayed for 3 nights in the Perrier Jouet Suite. We loved the room. The bed was very comfortable, robes in the bathroom, all in all very luxurious.
The hotel itself was immaculately clean, the staff made us feel incredibly welcome from the moment we arrived.
Fantastic breakfast with emphasis on the vegetarian breakfast option.
Will definitely be staying again. And We will highly recommend to our friends.
“My Highest Recommendation!!!”
I had a truly outstanding 5-day stay at the Blanch House. Blanch House is a lovely, boutique property situated on a quiet side street that is walking distance to all the action Brighton has to offer (including transportation). I had one of the smaller rooms, and it was well appointed and extremely livable. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was modern and clean. The daily breakfast was amazing. What was even more spectacular was the service. I literally felt like I was a special guest in this house. The owner and staff were welcoming, gracious and helpful. I would give Blanch House my highest recommendation and hope I get a chance to visit again.
“Only regret stay was too short”
If you are looking for first class accommodation, look no further. Just one word to sum up our stay at Blanch House and that is perfect. Everything about Blanch House is impressive including all the staff and owner,, all helped make our stay very special . A big thank you.
“Excellent for a Private Dinner”
We held a large private dinner at Blanch House during the party conference season in 2013. The venue, food and staff were absolutely excellent, and it’s thoroughly recommended. Kerry and his team looked after us really well.
Great location, great decor and absolutely flawless service. I’d accidentally left my phone charger behind but received a call 2 hours after leaving to let me know it’d been posted back to me and will arrive the following week. Fantastic! Would thoroughly recommend to anyone planning a weekend (or longer) trip to Brighton.
“Great Place to Stay”
Blanch House was lovely. Great value. Perfect location. Very chilled. We had such a lovely time there and would definitely look to stay again without a doubt. The service was great. Breakfast is superb.
“A beautiful venue for an intimate wedding with friendly staff and fabulous food and all round hospitality.”
We chose Blanch House for our wedding venue because they offered the full service – wedding ceremony and reception in one place and the Hotel manager was incredibly helpful when we first went down to check out the venue. The rooms are all beautiful and imaginatively designed. The menu and wine choices could be designed in a bespoke way to give us maximum flexibility. On the day everything was organised and professional. The food was excellent. We had 39 guests including a few children and toddlers running around and we had the run of the venue for the day and evening. It was a memorable wedding and I would recommend Blanch House to anyone looking for a venue for a special event.
“Welcome Break at Blanch House”
Blanch House is a chic little hotel. All of the rooms are original and cute. What struck me most about the hotel apart from the brilliant breakfast was the exceptionally kind and friendly staff. They were always smiling, happy and making sure that we were having an enjoyable time. I would highly recommend this hotel.
“Bijou and Brilliant”
We stayed here for one night, and really wished we could have stayed for longer. Warmly welcomed by the co-owner Kerry, we were shown to our lovely room. All mod cons, comfortable bed (with plenty of cushions) and little touches like home made biscuits in the room made it all the more wonderful. We couldn’t fault the room, even the compact size of the shower room was not an issue, as it was modern and clean. Breakfast was marvellous – nothing was too much trouble (additional coffee was requested due to our – ahem – ‘delicate heads’ after a lovely evening in town) and the staff were quick to take our order and deliver the best scrambled egg I’ve had, outside of my own kitchen, ever! Blanch house is only a 15 min walk from the train station and there is ample parking on the main road (although it would be pay and display) if you drive into Brighton; so it is far enough away from the nightlife, but close enough to enjoy it and ‘stagger home’. There are larger rooms available that looked lovely too, should you need the extra space. The décor was fresh – as were all the flowers on display – and a friendly smile from all the staff made this trip to Brighton all the more memorable. We will definitely stay here again next time we travel to the coast.
“Oodles of charm”
They say first impressions count. Well, our first impression of Blanch House was that of a very friendly, helpful and professional establishment. When we arrived, we were greeted by Josie (I believe that was her name) who offered to help carry one of our bags up to the top of the hotel (not a given!). These impressions remained during our entire stay. Kerry who is one of the two owners of Blanch House was very personable and charming; getting to know the staff and vice versa is, I feel, one of the positive elements of staying in a B&B rather than a big hotel whose staff don’t know you from Adam. We stayed in the Galaxy room which is at the top of the hotel. The stairs are not for the faint hearted and the positives of being up in the heavens was the daily “workout” (no gym required), the room is very big, modern and airy, quiet (no disturbance from the sound of slamming doors that you find even in 5-star hotels) and has a side-window view to the sea. Breakfast was yummy and nicely presented. The bar area was great for a pre-dinner G&T or reading with a nice pot of tea. The Blanch is a lovely place to relax, especially when weather-wise you can be unlucky and it’s bucketing down with rain! We will be returning and will have to juggle future visits between Blanch House and our previous favourite The Twenty One or we’ll just have to toss a coin and let the coin make the decision for us!
This is my first review on TripAdvisor, prompted by 2 amazing nights at Blanch House.
The room was gorgeous (pierre jouet room), the owners and their team were friendly and welcoming, and the breakfasts were so good! I’m dairy free which is always a pain when it comes to ordering breakfast, but the staff were very helpful and accommodating which made a refreshing change to the norm!
I can’t fault our stay and I will be recommending Blanch House to all friends and family who are planning a trip to Brighton. We will definitely return!
“A fantastic hotel”
I stayed in the Moroccan room which was absolutely fantastic!. Comfortable, relaxing; the most amazing room I’ve ever had the pleasure to stay in! Great service, friendly, attentive staff in a charming hotel close to the beach; fabulous Brighton attractions & nightlife!!! Had a great holiday ; already booked for another decadent weekend to be pampered!! Excellent hotel!, great breakfasts too!
