2017 has been an impressive year for the 201-bedroom hotel on the seafront in the city, as it bids to further cement itself among the country’s leading destination hotels.
This year has seen the start of the major restoration of its Victorian exterior, which will result in new windows, balconies and rendering for the famed 153 year old seafront façade.
Set to be revealed in 2018, the total restoration project will help to further establish the hotel as one of Brighton’s most iconic landmarks.

The reimagined Victoria Bar, Lounge and Terrace draws on the hotel’s heritage and has created a new scene for Brighton’s foodies.

The hotel is also taking lead sponsorship of the popular Brighton Half Marathon. The three-year deal will see the race renamed as The Grand Brighton Half Marathon and will ensure additional funds are raised for local charities.
General manager, Andrew Mosley, said: “2017 has been a positive year which has enabled us to put the right attitude, look and ambiance in place for a hotel that we want to lead the UK hospitality sector. We’re really lucky to have an amazing team of forward-thinkers who bring great ideas, and who are helping to give the hotel a real buzz, spirit and a local identity. 2018 raises the bar once again and we can’t wait for the people of Brighton and beyond to see the new face of The Grand.”
