Description

The 12 elegant and stylish meeting rooms are bright, airy and elegantly furnished and can accommodate up to 250 delegates theatre style and 180 for a banquet or dinner dance.

If you are searching for a quirky venue, full of character for a conference, meeting or private dinner, then the Wine Cellars are ideal. Legend has it that these eerie old caves, deep in the heart of the hotel, were once used by smugglers to hide their booty; now carefully restored they provide a wonderful, atmospheric backdrop for private parties.

Dating back in parts to 1559, The Old Ship Hotel is the oldest hotel in Brighton and stands proud on the bustling seafront in this popular British destination.
From its magnificent white façade to contemporary modern reception area, the Hotel prides itself on excellent customer service in comfortable relaxed surroundings.

The largest suite in the hotel is the spectacular Paganini Ballroom, which dates back to the 17th century, and is the oldest meeting room in Brighton.

Message In A Bottle!
The iconic 154 room Old Ship Hotel in Brighton is excited to announce a new exciting look for its outdoor terrace, which boasts a prime sea-front location.
Brighton’s most historic hotel has decked the terrace out with stunning new furniture in preparation for the summer months.
This is THE place to have a drink and watch the world go by, with singers performing live music every weekend during the summer.
Not only will it look good, it will further enhance the eco-friendly credentials of the hotel as it’s entirely made from recycled plastic bottles.
Each chair alone is made from over 500 bottles, definitely a very green “Message in a Bottle” to shout about to your clients!

Part of the original 'Shippe Inn', the intriguing cellars of The Old Ship Hotel date back to 1559; their story is entwined with the smuggling history of the Sussex coast and they provide a unique backdrop for a totally different dining experience.

Perfect hotel for a short stay in Brighton. Right on the beach, in the center and walking distance to practically everything you want to do. Rooms are spacious and very tidy - although the walls are a bit thin. The bar is open until very late and the staff were very accomodating and friendly. Check-out is at 11 but if you call down to reception early enough they may let you have an extension until 12. The lift is old, tiny and terrifying - try and take the stairs.

Fabulous place, photo was when the window cleaner was cleaning the window whilst we ate breakfast. Great place, right on the sea front. Very nice breakfast with plenty of choice, room fairly clean, just minor things like a teaspoon down the back of the tv unit and old room cleaning cards, nothing disgusting. Would definitely recommend and we would definitely stay again.

Excellent experience. Friendly, helpful staff. The building is old, has character but no air conditioning; this was not a major problem even in very hot weather as the rooms are nice and airy with high ceilings. We had a room with a sea view via a bay window. It was only marred by the outdoor DJ immediately below our window for 4 hours one day, and the singer with backing track for 3 hours another day.

Had a comfortable stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were very well presented and maintained. The location is central and was very handy. We had a great stay and enjoyed waking up to such a beautiful view.

Great seating overlooking the sea. They charge a 10% gratuity like most places these days. Beware of it. We had great salads with chicken for 15pounds each. Not bad considering the location. Prepare to pay when you order, there are no tabs for people sitting on the front (understandably).
