About the property

Unique stunning seafront penthouse apartment with terrace, panoramic sea view

This small, beautiful and unique penthouse apartment directly faces the sea right at the 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. French doors open directly onto the terrace from both the living room and bedroom to make the most of the terrace and the wonderful sea view. We can also offer on-site parking at an additional nightly rate that is cheaper than on-street parking or the nearest car parks, a rarity with Brighton and Hove holiday apartments. Please note that while the apartment sleeps four (with sofa bed) it is ideal for a couple or two adults with up to two children. We cannot accept bookings for three to four adults.

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 and to hold their Certificate of Excellence.

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.

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. Use of the sofa bed is by prior arrangement.

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!

Second visit, just as lovely as the first

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in 2017 for the Brighton Marathon (I was running in it), and when I decided to run the 2018 Marathon we didn't even hesitate to book here again.

The apartment is just lovely. A fabulous location with amazing views, what more could you ask for? Well if a clean, smart, well equipped apartment is what else you would ask for, then you'll have that too!

We are a family of 4 (2 young girls), and it is a little bit cosy for us all at night, but that adds to the fun and the charm. The apartment has everything you would need for a stay, and we had an enjoyable time. Olivia is very helpful too and kindly arranged for a parking space for the long weekend.

Would highly recommend staying here, hope we get a chance to again in the future. Thanks!

Get a Penthouse for the price of a hotel.

  • 5 of 5

We are a firm believer of using private lets where possible, instead of paying multinational Hotel chains for accommodation. The price of this penthouse was approximately the same price of a hotel that was far less superior. The difference is you have a whole penthouse with a balcony, try getting a hotel room with balcony with amenities including sky TV for the same price.

The whole apartment is snug, it has everything you need, it is like a home from home. The view from the balcony is amazing, uninterrupted views throughout.

The kitchen is well appointed, although we didn’t use it all that much as we are foodies who eat out on every occasion possible.

The bathroom is well equipped with additional under-floor heating which is a nice touch on the feet in the morning.

Bedroom, although fairly small is suffice for a holiday stay with cupboards to accommodate a trips worth of clothing, TV with sky and a heater if required.

The lounge/diner is a good size with Sky TV, a good size settee and a small table for dining. Views from the lounge and bedroom face straight out to the sea front and on a nice day with the balcony doors open you can hear the waves on the sea which I find very soothing indeed.

Overall the accommodation was everything we wished for and more. Couldn’t fault the Art Deco building and the accommodation within.

The location is just west, up from the main pier, nearer to the west pier. We were first a little worried and as we didn’t know the area we thought we would be quite far away from things to do and nearby shops and amenities, but that was far from the truth. There is plenty up this end and a walk along the promenade also takes you to many attractions.

If you are on that extra special stay, we would recommend The Gingerman restaurant which is literally a 2 min walk, we had an amazing tasting menu. We also had a great massage at The Little Jasmine Spa. We would also highly recommend the vegetarian restaurant Terre a Terre for afternoon tea. Don’t forget to take a walk through the North Laines for all those quirky shops.

Overall very happy with this stay, a big thank you to Olivia for making sure everything was just right on our stay and our anniversary. We would book again if we popped back to Brighton.

So instead of booking that Hotel, go book yourself into a lovely Art Deco Building and get yourself a penthouse. Make the stay that extra bit special, you won’t regret it.

Kind Regards

Kelvin and Helen

A gem of an apartment in a jewel of a building.

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing penthouse apartment in a very special building - Embassy Court.

For lovers of important architecture Embassy Court was designed by Wells Coates and occupies a unique position in the history of modernist architecture.

The building also occupies a unique position right on the seafront on the borders of Hove and Brighton, making it an excellent base from which to explore Brighton. A 20 minute stroll and you're in the midst of the 'Lanes'.

The views from the apartment are stunning - sea out front as far as the eye can see and the fun of the promenade 10 floors beneath.

Olivia has styled the place beautifully in a calming pale turquoise and white. The kitchen is full of every utensil you'd need to cook any meal and waking up to coffee on the terrace was a joy.

We loved every minute of our stay and Olivia was incredibly helpful which added greatly to the welcoming feel of the apartment.

Adorable, cozy flat with great views of the sea. Excellent communication with the owner leading up to our stay. A really convenient location for exploring both Brighton and Hove, each of which have their own charms. Hope to return again one day.
