i've been really lucky to travel a lot with the job that i do . & i've been lucky enough to stay in some gorgeous hotels around the world . unfortunately this has left me a little bit fussy when it comes to choosing places to stay for my own trips . brighton seemed full of chic little boutique b&b's but i know from grim experience that not everyone's idea of ' boutique ' is my idea of ' boutique ' so it was with finger's crossed that i booked ' the white house ' for our stay in brighton .
on-line it looks like everything i'd ideally want in a b&b . modern . clean . simple but stylish . cole&son & marimekko wallpapers . orla kiely bath & body products . a lovely sounding breakfast menu .
it didn't disappoint . sean is a lovely host . unassuming & accommodating . friendly & attentive . all in just the right way .
neither did brighton itself disappoint . part of my reasons for choosing to run my first hAlf mArathon in brighton was due to me wanting an excuse / reason to visit the town . whilst i may not have had quite as much time as i'd have liked to look around, it was enough to know that i would love to go back again in the summer to see more . i popped by the pAvillion & the museum . & then, i should confess, i got waylaid for a little while in the royal pavillion tearooms . coffee & the loveliest slice of caramel cake . well, come on, i had just run 13.1miles !
a stroll back along the front by the pier & the wheel & then a cheeky afternoon tea at the wonderfully retro metro-deco cafe . a delicious end to a fabulous weekend .
. brighton .
. can't wait to see you again .
. have a lovely day .
