Red Brighton Blue is located in a grade 2 listed building, built at the height of the Georgian era, around 1830 and has many original features, such as high ceilings, large windows, fireplaces, skirtings and coving. Originally a private family residence, it has been a guest house for at least the last 60 years, with names such as Chester Court, Brighton Pavilions and now, following a complete renovation in 2016, Red Brighton Blue. The history of Brighton is that of an ancient fishing village called Brighthelmston, which emerged as a health resort in the 18th century, seaside home of the Royals in the 19th century and grew into one of the largest towns in England by the 20th century, achieving city status in 2000 as part of the Millennium celebrations.

More Brighton History



ON BRIGHTON. Published in The Brighton Herald, August 15, 1818

HAIL, favour'd spot, divine retreat! Sweet refuge from Sol's scorching heat! Here harmless pleasure holds her sway, Each face we meet as bright as day, No gloom, all joyous as the morn, When Sol's first rays the sky adorn. Thrice happy spot, long may'st thou give, To be a town superb and great, With beauty rare they sense unite, But in each look true sweetness dwells, And throws around its magic spells, Blest place at once in thee we view, All fancy's pencil ever drew - Extracts from a poem by Mrs R Beverley, 19th Century Comedian

We're committed to providing excellent accommodation and services to guests, whilst minimising our impact on the environment and also behaving as a socially responsible neighbour and employer.  Here are some of the ways we do that.

We sort & recycle all waste from the hotel & guest bedrooms.  We have energy efficient lighting throughout the hotel and water saving technology in our bathrooms.

Being on the sunny south coast, we have invested in solar power technology and generate as much of our own energy as possible and contribute any excess back to the national grid.

We treat our staff fairly, trying our best to create a great place to work and a good team spirit.  We pay the Brighton Living Wage which helps ensure staff are fairly rewarded for the work they do.
