Known as one of Melbourne’s exclusive suburbs, Brighton has lots to offer visiting tourists from its six kilometres of beach and coastline to its shopping districts to its local gardens and artwork. Both tourists and business professionals stop in here but if you plan to, you need to stay at the right hotel.
What Brighton’s Boutique Hotel Has to Offer
Since opening in 1967, the Brighton Savoy has become a trademark in the beachfront area. Since it’s located directly on Brighton Beach and near the shops on Church Street, it’s become a popular choice. However, the location is just one reason to this full-service boutique hotel out.
- Pick your accommodations. Since the hotel was remodelled last year into a modern boutique hotel, it now features 60 rooms on two levels. You can choose from either standard or family rooms or deluxe queen or king vistas, featuring stunning seaside views. With both options, you’ll get full use of the amenities, such as complimentary WIFI internet access, premium cable channels, 24-hour front desk, covered parking, and housekeeping each day. Visit BrightonSavoy.com.au to further look at the room choices.
- Take advantage of the extra amenities. If you’re travelling for business, the hotel houses meeting spaces and conference rooms, as well as a business traveller discount. In addition, the hotel offers an extensive amount of extra amenities to families or couples, such as in-room massages, laundry services, childcare services, and an airport transportation. Contact the reception desk for assistance and they’ll help you as well as letting you how much the extra charge will be.
- Visit Brighton Savoy’s famous Seaview Restaurant. You’ll have a stunning view of the beach and the sea and it’s a fun place to grab a drink or dine with your friends. They’re open every morning for breakfast from 7 am until 10 am, and they open again for dinner in the evenings. The restaurant specialises in local cuisine, offering choices like its signature Hungarian Goulash Soup, pan-fried New Zealand flounder, or spaghetti with prawns, scallops and other seafood and marinara sauce. In addition to their regular dining hours, they also host weddings, and hold “Open Wedding Hours” on weekends so they can meet with potential couples.
- Visit some of the area’s nearby attractions. Located near the hotel, you’ll find not only Brighton Beach but the infamous Brighton Bathing Boxes, which used to be used for changing into your swimming costumes. Nowadays, tourists enjoy seeing the uniform vibrant boxes. Other outdoor activities include hiking along the 17 kilometre Bayside Coastal Arts Trail, featuring local artists painting or swimming, walking or fishing at Middle Brighton Pier. Downtown, you’ll find a plethora of shops, restaurants, and entertainment, including the Brighton Theatre Company, which hosts four local productions each year.
Part of Brighton’s appeal is the architecture, such as the city buildings and the garden, as well as the Bayside Coastal Arts Trail so choose a hotel within walking distance. This way, you can enjoy the sights leisurely and all of the scenic beauty of the area.
