Snooze – A Labour of Love

Welcome to our new blog, this is where you are going to find our own unique take on all things Brighton! Each week we will be putting down our thoughts about upcoming ‘events’ that are not to be missed or ‘social’ places that really should require your further attention! We’ll do our best to keep you entertained, interested and informed!

To kick it all off we thought that should just let you know what we are all about. We’ve been open now for nearly 13 years and its been a rollercoaster of a journey. We have changed the place up inside and out a good few times now always trying to stay fresh and offer people something different, anyway here goes, this is our philosophy!

Snooze is located in Brighton’s cool and creative Kemptown district, situated in a quiet residential street 2 mins walk to the seafront and set in a grand double fronted terraced house built in 1879. On the outside a traditional and unassuming Victorian seaside building, but on the inside it opens up to a truly unique visual vintage design delight running, through 8 individually styled bedrooms and an imaginatively eclectic & striking breakfast/reception room.

Our vision was to bring a fresh new style to Brighton’s seaside and to stand out from the crowd in an already busy market. Driven by our love of vintage / mid century furnishings and reflecting our shared passion for design, fashion & music, we transformed the building into a fabulously quirky & funky bolt hole. An often relentless and resourceful search of Boot Fairs, Flea Markets and Antique Fairs have helped us create a memorable and super-cool setting adding a stylish yet unpretentious twist to staying Bed & Breakfast.

More and more people seem to be searching for something different & somewhere unique to stay. We really benefit from this and seem to have a wide ranging appeal to all age groups, with the older generation liking us for the nostalgia and the younger people looking for something cool & quirky.

Its very important to say that although we may stand out and have strong visual appeal, Snooze is not style over substance. Its also about our attitude, the atmosphere we’ve created and the way we run things. We continue to strive to get things right and to do our utmost to deliver a high quality, super clean Bed & Breakfast offering with modern luxuries, great friendly service, a delicious breakfast, relaxed & laid back and value for money.

From the outset we’ve had a limited budget and resources, so we’ve had to be more creative and imaginative in every aspect of our project. With our meticulous hands-on approach to all areas of the business we hope that people recognise it has been a real labour of love and the result of a strong friendship, with mutual respect & trust and a likeminded vision.
