A CASTLE FOR ALL OCCASIONS NESTLED IN THE SUSSEX COUNTRYSIDE Amberley Castle is a unique luxury hotel steeped in over 900 years of history in the South Downs National Park
Part of the AA Hotel Group of the Year 2017-18, Amberley Castle is a unique luxury hotel located in the picturesque village of Amberley at the foot of the South Downs. Privately owned by Andrew and Christina Brownsword, this magnificent 900-year-old castle is enclosed by a 60 foot high curtain wall and portcullis that remains open, behind which you will discover an enchanting hotel offering the highest standards of food and service. Bedrooms are resplendent with the luxurious facilities you would expect from a country house hotel.
History encompasses every part of this wonderful building and the many acres of gardens it stands in. Enjoy discovering our tennis courts, 18-hole putting green and croquet lawn, and even our resident peacock roaming the grounds. For those seeking tranquillity and relaxation, there are many quiet corners to discover under the shade of a tree or by the fireside.
Hotel du Vin
Our luxury Brighton hotel is nestled in the iconic cobbled alleyways of The Lanes. Once the historic fishing village of Brighthelmstone, today The Lanes are home to designer boutiques, upmarket jewellers, and antique stores, and, of course, Hotel du Vin Brighton. Brighton is one of the UK’s most popular city break destinations, and with brilliant weather, high-end dining options, and a famous pier and seafront, it’s easy to see why.
With 49 distinctive rooms and suites available at our Brighton hotel, some offering spectacular sea views, you’ll find super-soft Egyptian cotton linen, fluffy towels, roll top baths and drenching monsoon showers. Dine al fresco under the vine-covered pergola in our central courtyard, or sink into a leather armchair in the bar or lounge, and choose from over 100 whiskies and rums or savour one of our delicious cocktails. Train your palate with expert guidance in our wine cellar with our in-house Sommelier and tuck into simple, robust dishes prepared with fresh, local, seasonal ingredients in our trademark bistro. Or disappear to Cave du Vin, a snug hideaway for intimate private parties. We love hosting celebrations, so whatever the occasion, make merry in the striking 1920s-inspired Ruinart private dining room - or how about a spectacular wedding or civil ceremony in The Dome?
