Review of Hotel du Vin Brighton 

Written by Sabi Phagura on . Posted in Hotels, Travel


Brighton is one of the most popular places to live in outside of London. It’s also a popular destination for those wanting to head to the seaside for the day. But a day trip here is not always enough to lay about on the beach – not to mention all the iconic tourist attractions to head. So, I checked myself into Hotel du Vin to make the most of a relaxing beachy weekend. 

A glimpse of Brocket Hall from Melbourne Lodge

Although I headed to Brocket Hall, made famous in ITV’s Victoria, for a night’s stay, I didn’t actually stay there. The 30-bedroom hall itself, with original oil paintings and period furniture befitting the reputation of Brocket Hall, is used for private functions and weddings and not as a hotel. The estate’s hotel is Melbourne Lodge within the grounds, its 16 rooms converted from stables.

Most of us fall into the trap of only visiting places which are popular with the masses, the kind of places that make a song and dance about their presence.

If you feel like a golf widow every time your partner goes to hit some balls or you’re an enthusiast who wants to get some practice in, the Little Channels Golf Club in Essex is a great venue to head to. From beginners to pros you can certainly learn something valuable to aid you on the course. With a chance to hit some balls, I went along in a bid to practice a perfect swing.

Off to University at J W Marriott Phu Quoc Vietnam

Some of the best days people will recall are those spent at university. It’s a place where long term friendships are forged, personal development is enhanced and a set of skills are acquired as a supply chain to businesses. Whatever the reason for feeling nostalgic for the long-gone days, J W Marriott Phu Quoc in Vietnam will have you reminiscing those wonder years from the moment you step into their grounds as I found out.
