Harbour Hotels, the coastal boutique brand, has announced its next acquisition in the city of Brighton, marking the group’s seventh property by the sea.
The hotel group, headed up by managing director former Hotel du Vin COO Mike Warren, has purchased a landmark 1850’s building on the seafront to transform into the Brighton Harbour Hotel & Spa.
With Brighton’s thriving popularity, Harbour Hotels hopes to tap into this exciting tourism market with the launch of its Brighton property, due to open in summer 2016.
The news follows the unveiling of Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa which is scheduled to open its doors in 2017.
Brighton Harbour Hotel & Spa will consist of the brand’s famous Jetty restaurant and Champagne bar, and a Harbour Spa which will offer Brighton’s only rooftop pool.
Mike Warren, MD of Harbour Hotels, commented: “We are very excited to be taking the Harbour Hotels brand to Brighton; it’s one of the UK’s most vibrant hotel and tourism markets and a key strategic location from our perspective. With a prime position on the seafront, we plan to maximise on this lively coastal setting with a full refurbishment programme – to include the award-winning Jetty restaurant and bar concept, unique private dining spaces and a Harbour Spa, featuring a luxury rooftop pool.”
