About The Courtlands

More than a hotel; The Courtlands is an iconic piece of Hove’s history, stretched contentedly along a prestigious tree-lined avenue within a short walk of the famous promenade and shingle seafront.


Quietly grand by nature, this is understated splendour and restful style, with friendly and professional service.

We offer comfortable accommodation with style; each of our en suite rooms are different – some traditional, with an eclectic mix of beautiful and authentic antique furniture, some contemporary with chic and minimal style – whether old or new, all rooms have complimentary wifi.

On-site parking is available.


Hove’s seafront forms the end of a series of grand avenues and wide boulevards, named in numerical order beginning with First Avenue. They are mostly composed of extremely large and fine Victorian villas built in the early and mid-Victorian era, featuring mews for artisans and service buildings.

Grand Avenue, The Drive (with The Courtlands boasting a prime position), and the surrounding avenues were developed through the 1870s and 1880s, with many of the buildings in this area constructed by the great English builder, William Willett.
