This small, beautiful penthouse apartment faces the sea at the front of this iconic L-shaped Grade II* listed building, so is one of the few that enjoys stunning uninterrupted panoramic sea views from the living room, bedroom, and the 7.3 x 1.7m private sun terrace (with doors opening directly onto the terrace from the living room and bedroom). Parking is also available at a nightly rate, a rarity in Brighton, a rarity with Brighton and Hove holiday accommodation.
The apartment is furnished and equipped to a very high standard with everything you may need for your stay, including high quality Egyptian cotton bedlinen and White Company towels. Fast broadband is available throughout the apartment and there are wall-mounted LCD televisions in both living room and bedroom. It has a beautiful bespoke Italian blue granite kitchen and stunning bespoke designer bathroom with luxurious under-floor heating. We are delighted to be in Tripadvisor's top 5 of all holiday apartments in Brighton and Hove by guest rating.
Embassy Court is a beautiful Grade II* listed 1930s Modernist building with a distinctive L-shape, some apartments facing the sea and some looking to the side. The apartment and its immediate neighbours were the first ever purpose-built penthouses in the UK so it has a lovely architectural significance. The architect Wells Coates's top priority for the apartment was pleasure and making the most of the panoramic top floor view enjoyed by the sea-facing apartments, so the private sun terrace, windows and glass doors run the length of the apartment to give the panoramic views and a real sense of openness and space. The bedroom is small and designed purely for sleeping, but with the uninterrupted sea views offered by the entire front wall being made up of windows and French doors you can sit up in bed and look out to sea!
The apartment is close to all central Brighton has to offer with its coveted shops and restaurants, and the Pier and famous Lanes are just a short stroll along the seafront. We have many fantastic amenities on our doorstep including one of the best rated restaurants in Brighton (The Gingerman). Waitrose, Sainsbury's and Taj supermarkets are a few minutes walk, Brighton and Hove stations are a few minutes by taxi, Gatwick Airport is thirty minutes by train, and London fifty minutes by train.
Please note that the apartment is ideal for a couple. While it can sleep four (with sofabed) it is a small apartment so is best suited to two adults with up to two children. We are unable to accept bookings for more than two adults. There is lift access but as a listed building with some steps and the lifts being very small we regret that there is no wheelchair access. Travel cot with mattress and highchair provided on request free of charge and the apartment is equipped with children's cutlery, cups and plates.
If you are interested in staying with us please let us know your preferred dates and we'll be delighted to come back to you asap.
