About the property

Unique stunning seafront penthouse apartment with terrace, panoramic sea view

This small, beautiful and unique penthouse faces the sea at the very front of this iconic L-shaped Grade II* listed Modernist building, enjoying stunning uninterrupted and panoramic sea views from the living room, bedroom, and the 7.3 x 1.7m private sun terrace (doors open directly onto the terrace from the living room and bedroom). On-site parking is available at a nightly rate, a rarity with Brighton and Hove holiday apartments.

The apartment is furnished and equipped to a very high standard with everything you may need for your stay, including high quality Egyptian cotton bedlinen and soft White Company towels. Fast wi-fi is provided throughout the apartment and there are wall-mounted LCD televisions in both living room and bedroom. It has a beautiful bespoke Italian blue granite kitchen and stunning designer bathroom with luxurious under-floor heating. We are delighted to be in Trip. Advisor's top 5 guest of all holiday apartments in Brighton and Hove by guest rating.

Embassy Court is a beautiful Grade II* listed 1930s Modernist building with a distinctive L-shape, some apartments facing the sea and some apartments looking to the side (this one faces the sea). The apartment is on the top floor of apartments and these were the first ever purpose-built penthouses in the UK, so it has a lovely architectural significance. The architect Wells Coates's top priority for the apartment was pleasure and making the most of the panoramic view so the private sun terrace, windows and glass doors run the length of the apartment giving a real sense of light, openness and space. The bedroom is small but with the uninterrupted sea views pouring through the windows and French doors you can sit up in bed and look out to sea!

The apartment is close to central Brighton and Hove with all its coveted shops and restaurants, and the Pier and The Lanes are only a short stroll along the seafront. There are many fantastic amenities on our doorstep including one of the best rated restaurants in Brighton (The Gingerman). Waitrose, Sainsbury's and Taj supermarkets are a few minutes walk, Brighton and Hove stations are a few minutes by taxi, Gatwick Airport is thirty minutes by train, and London fifty minutes by train.

Please note that the apartment is ideal for a couple. While it can sleep four (with sofabed) it is a small apartment so best suited to two adults with up to two children. We cannot accept bookings for three to four adults. The apartment is for the quiet enjoyment of the number and those named on the accepted booking only and parties and gatherings are strictly not permitted.

There is lift access but as a listed building with some steps and the lifts being very small we regret that there is no wheelchair access. Travel cot with mattress and highchair provided on request free of charge and the apartment is equipped with children's cutlery, cups and plates.

If you are interested in staying with us please let us know your preferred dates and we'll be delighted to come back to you asap. As a small and friendly team we always really appreciate any info you might like to give about you and your trip. Please also note that we have a minimum stay of three nights throughout the year which rises to 4 and 6 nights during peak times. We cannot accept pets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Do you know the thrill when something you have been looking forward to exceeds your best expectations? Well this was how we experienced it, when we entered this flat on a bright sunny day in the middle of July. The balcony view is breathtaking and the apartment’s interior fully supports the feeling of being on top of everything. We chose this apartment instead of a hotel and we feel we got so much more value. This apartment offers you complete freedom and due to its location also a palette of great opportunities.

Classic style with a modern twist, 102 Embassy Court is probably the coolest place we've stayed. Great location, right on the seafront and perfect for us as my wife and I were both doing the marathon.Olivia's customer service is excellent, nothing was too much trouble and she made sure we had everything we needed for our 6 month old son. We only wished we could have stayed longer!

Awesome view - perfect for couples

  • 5 of 5

This is the small but very well equipped flat. Everything has been redone and updated. The view from the private balcony is amazing being the penthouse you feel very open to sky and see. Just a few minute walk to the beach and a small playground right across the street. It was close too many good shops restaurants and markets. Can't wait to stay here again.

Lovely apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed as a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 young children) for a long weekend. Location is fantastic. Really nicely kept apartment, very well equipped, it had everything we needed. Very safe and secure too.

Little bit cosey for space at night, but the fantastic views and location more than make up for that.

Olivia was very helpful and checked we settled in OK, and getting the key from the building manager was easy and he was very helpful too.

Will definitely look to booking again

Fantastic apartment, beautiful sea views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at embassy court for a short break during summer. I was pleasantly surprised on arrival to see the high standard of accommodation, and the amazing sea views. The penthouse at embassy court commands an exceptional position on the sea front, with a wonderful balcony to sit out and take a moment of peace away from the hustle and bussle below. With two young children in tow, we were well placed to enjoy many of the excellent local activities which were within easy walking distance. Olivia was an excellent host, and very informative, providing detailed suggested activities for young children and Nothing was too much trouble. Would we go again? Yes definitely.
