    Depends on budget.

    I’m sick of the Travelodge in Preston Park thinking they can get away with charging £190/night. Won’t get much cheaper than that elsewhere in B&H though.

    I go down regularly and now stay at the Chatsworth in Worthing. Worthing is way, way nicer than it was when I was at Uni of Sussex. Parking is 8 quid for 25 hours, multi-storey just up the road.

    But if you specifically need to be in Brighton it’s 30-odd minutes away still.

    Fun fact. This summer I had the best brunch of my life in Worthing, sat outside a lovely bistro on the pedestrian precinct. Which was good as the breakfast in the Chatsworth isn’t good enough for my neighbour’s cat.

    And I hate cats.

    For anyone wondering, the brunch is here.

    The crumpet stack. Outstanding.

    depends how central you want to be. Parking and prices generally along the coast are exorbitant, but a little into the suburbs and its much easier. Most of brighton has chargable on-street parking now, but away from the centre it can be as cheap as £4/day (centre is that an hour..) Brighton is small, so you might only be a 15 min walk from the centre and in a way cheaper neck of the woods.

    avoid the preston park hotel if its still going, been a shocking place for years.

    We stayed here a few years ago and it was lovely (not particularly cheap though YMMV):

    thanks so far folks – its for a wedding anniversary few days, but also see some friends, so we have plenty of time to walk to and from places if need be – ideally really would like parking as its a hassle otherwise ferrying luggage etc

    i did think it wouldn’t be huge but as ive never been before wasnt 100% – we can walk its no problem at all

    We stayed in a series of appartments that were literally, above the water in Brighton Marina. Quite cozy and everything that was needed for a week at a conference. Free parking nearby and a cheap and fast bus ride to town.

    Something along the lines of this, but not this exact place.

    Ah..it’s a dirty weekend away… I was gonna offer our spare bedroom if it was, say, just you needing a bed for a business meet etc.. think it wouldn’t wuite be the romance you were looking for otherwise!!!!

    But… we’ve a large drive in Hove (BN3, near Cardinal Newman school) you’re welcome to park on as needed?? Not central brighton, but the offer’s there!

    @DrP

    ah thats incredibly kind of you to offer – sadly yes i think the wife may not be so happy with it for our anniversary! ha!

    well you know what if parking is a issue when we do finally book – i may well take you up on that if thats ok, i would literally just dump it there for a few days and taxi it back to yours when we leave – thank you though -thats really kind of you and probably quite a stress off my mind

    as for the other two recommendations – had a look that arty one is nice – depending on whether we do 2 or 3 days might be a go’er – but theres some nice ones on air b n b i think id prefer that over a hotel but will see this weekend

    No worries 👍
    The space is there for you!
    If you wanted to bring a bike in sure I could fit in a local ride for you (again..possibly not quite the romance the missus intended!)… or… I’ve a small trek ebike you could borrow, you and the missus could enjoy a local ride?

    Anyway…
    Options!

    haha thanks for the offer – sadly she is not pro MTB at all, i’d go as far as to say she hates it with a passion, so going riding not a option on our anniversary, as much as id love to

    but many many thanks for the offer, and of course parking offer – will be in touch after the weekend once we’ve decided where we are
