Your Resort

Bognor Regis is one of England's oldest resorts having begun its transformation from fishing village to seaside resort in the 1780s. Its long flat seafront is perfect for that most traditional of seaside occupations - strolling along the prom! There are traditional rides and amusements and some delightful parks and gardens. There are many lively seafront cafes, bars and pubs which give it a very relaxed atmosphere. The surrounding countryside is full of interest - just a few miles inland are some of England's finest stately homes and of course the spectacular South Downs - England's newest National Park.


The hotel looks over its own extensive gardens on to the beach which is predominantly pebbly with clean and inviting waters. There is an attractive promenade separate from the road which makes walking along the prom a real pleasure! Nearby Hotham Park provides lots of amenities and is a delightful spot to spend an afternoon.

The town centre shops are approximately 10 minutes' walk from the hotel and the pier is just 250 metres away. The famous Butlins Resort is the largest holiday centre in the south of England and welcomes day visitors.
