    The Royal Albion Hotel is housed in two interconnecting Regency buildings, located on the city's seafront, adjacent to the Old Steine and war memorial, and directly opposite the beach and Brighton Pier. London Gatwick Airport is 31 miles from the hotel, around 30 minutes by car.

    Hotel Features.

    Guests can relax with draught beers, hot drinks and light meals in the bar, which features a wide-screen television showing sporting events and extends into a contemporary, conservatory-style side lounge with views of the pier.

    The Palace Pier, opposite the hotel, offers cafes, rides and an amusement arcade. The nearest golf course is approximately half a mile from the hotel; bicycles and scooters are available for hire within 100 meters, and hikers can explore the trails of the South Downs, 1.5 miles away.
