  • Overview

    Housed in a grade II listed Georgian townhouse in bohemian Kemptown, Blanch House was one of the first boutique hotels in Brighton. The 12-room Chic Retreat has been quirkily decorated, with each room inspired by a different theme; expect anything from rich, warm fabrics to cool-toned wallpapers.

    Service here is impeccable and it really is what makes Blanch such a special place; from the warmest of welcomes to the attentiveness of the staff, the team here will have you feeling at home in no time.

    Please note that this is an adults-only hotel, and is only suitable for those over 14 years of age.


    For a bit of pampering, treat yourself to one of the range of in-room massages and holistic treatments on offer at Blanch House (it is advisable to book these in advance). They even offer massage workshops for couples and friends, so you can learn the tips and tricks for a good massage from the experts. Outside of the hotel, you’ll find plenty on your doorstep. Located in Kemp Town, a rather bohemian district of Brighton, you’re only a short walk from St George’s Road, where you’ll find a wealth of shops and restaurants. Brighton’s sweeping seafront and popular beaches are also within a short walk.


    A fairly extensive breakfast menu is served in the Belle Epoque room, providing ample fuel for a day’s exploring (included in most room rates, see detail below). While there is no lunch or dinner available at the hotel, there are plenty of great options nearby, and the staff are more than happy to share their recommendations. For an evening tipple, head to the bar where you’ll find a lovely champagne and cocktail lounge.

    Each of the 12 rooms has been individually designed and named after its theme, with designer wallpapers, rich fabrics and no two the same. Bathrooms are compact and contemporary and come with the added treat of bathrobes. Rooms are split into three different types, with each step up affording you a little more space. The master Perrier Jouet room is spectacular and comes with its own little balcony.
