The New Steine Hotel & Bistro threw an extravagant party, with lashings of champagne and entertainment from the Pink Sinatra, to celebrate ten years on Brighton’s Kemptown seafront square.

This stylish boutique hotel and bistro has been fully refurbished to mark the occasion and is a wonderful place for dinner, for friends to come and stay, as well as for special events and business meetings, as it has some lovely function rooms.

Owner Herve Guyat said that he wanted to thank everyone who has helped him to make his business a success and particularly his customers, who keep on coming back to enjoy their hospitality and the delights of Brighton. He also paid tribute to his life partner Georges Amaru and his cousin and General Manager, Stephane Gaucher for their support.

Known for its warm welcome and quirky entertainment, which includes stunning art exhibitions, cabaret nights & popular Supper Club Dinners, the New Steine Hotel & Bistro is quite unique amongst the city’s boutique hotels, with an excellent restaurant for evening dining.

This cosy and stylish bistro offers homemade French food using top-quality Sussex produce, including well executed classics, such as foie gras de canard, French onion soup and escargots for starters and Sussex duck magret, rack of lamb or grill sea bass for mains. Their renowned creme brulée is a sinfully delicious dessert and they offer excellent value set price dining, evening only, seven nights per week. It also serves award-winning Sussex Breakfasts.

Herve, who comes from the South of France, moved to Brighton ten years ago to open the New Steine Hotel, after working for 14 years in London for some of the most prestigious hotels in sales and revenue manager roles, as well as Valentino and other famous fashion houses, where he started his career. This explains the stylish but very personal décor, with a French hint, which Hervé has used on the interior of all three of his properties.

The New Steine Hotel & Bistro is at 10 & 11 New Steine, Brighton, East Sussex, BN2 1PB, 01273 681546, www.newsteinehotel.com
