The company will renovate the as yet unnamed seafront property, opening in 2016 as the 77-bedroom Brighton Hotel & Spa. The refurbishment will involved the addition of a spa, rooftop pool and the company’s branded Jetty restaurant.

Mike Warren, managing director of Harbour Hotels, said: “We are very excited to be taking the Harbour Hotels brand to Brighton; it’s one of the UK’s most vibrant hotel and tourism markets and a key strategic location from our perspective. With a prime position on the seafront, we plan to maximise on this lively coastal setting with a full refurbishment programme.”

Harbour Hotels’ existing properties, owned by Nicolas James Group, are the Christchurch Harbour hotel and the Kings hotel, both in Christchurch, Dorset; St Ives Harbour hotel in Cornwall; Salcombe Harbour hotel and the Sidmouth Harbour hotel, in Devon. The company also owns and operates two wedding venues: Northbrook Park in Farnham, Surrey; and Froyle Park in Alton, Hampshire.

Its seventh property, the new-build £25 million Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa will open in June 2017.
