The Square townhouse lies in the fashionable Brighton neighbourhood of Kemp Town,
only a stones throw away from the seafront you will find beautiful Grade II listed buildings
overlooking a regency garden square.

The Square was purchased in late 2014 by a local family who invested heavily in the Grade II Listed Building, resulting in The Square becoming a luxury 5* Boutique Hotel. Extensive refurbishment of The Square followed in 2022 including the acquisition of, and expansion into, the neighbouring building, which together have created the marvel that is now the Square Townhouse, affectionately known as the SQT.  

Bursting with luxury Suites, eclectic décor and hand-picked art, our friendly and helpful team are here to welcome you to our intimate Townhouse which is a home away from home within our iconic city. 

Being a small, family-run business, we naturally guarantee the personal touches, and exceeding guests’ expectations is paramount to the attentive, friendly SQT Team.

Sustainability @ SQT

SQT prides itself on its continued sustainability efforts. Renovations were carried out by local builders and contractors with as many locally sourced supplies as were available. Great expense went into ensuring that plastic or harmful products were not used in the total renovation of the building.

SQT offers unlimited filtered still and sparkling water for guests to help themselves and refill the reusable bottles provided in every guest room, and local produce is sourced for the SQT Lounge Bar. 

Consideration of how to be more sustainable is taken in every decision that is made with us at the SQT along with supporting the local community and industry.  

Our mission is to continue to be the destination of choice that naturally comes to mind on your next visit to Brighton. We endeavour to understand our guests and their needs.  We  are committed to delivering a memorable experience that satisfies and goes far beyond expectations, with a focus on ensuring that we improve on perfection. 

Our Guest Relations are available to answer your every need providing a host of suggestions for a variety of activities in and around Brighton. From planning an event, sightseeing, or simply booking you into the best restaurant in the city, our team will be happy to help in any way they can. 

The SQT Team is like a family, with equality and diversity as the backbone of its values, and we are all individually proud of the team we have built together.

Prinny and his Brighton Palace

You can not think of Brighton and not think of ‘Prinny’,  King George IV who made Brighton his home on the promise of heady delights, debauchery, valour and healing spas.  

Known as London-by-Sea for its close proximity to the great capital, Brighton is a popular seaside town of East Sussex county, voted in 2019 as the best place to live and work in. It came into its own during the mid-1700s when seaside resorts became fashionable for cure-seekers. But it was during the Regency Age that it really took off, becoming infamous for the variety of hedonistic and often immoral pursuits it offered to Londoners. 

In 1820, George IV ascended the throne to become the King of Great Britain, the oldest child of King George III, George IV is remembered for his role as Regent and style setter rather then his reign as King. His lasting legacy was the Regency period, known for flourishing arts and literature, the resurgence of classical architecture and a great social and political change. 

Leading the pack of pleasure-seekers was the flamboyant Prince Regent “Prinny” himself (later King George IV). Fleeing his stifling royal duties in London, his frequent visits along with friends and courtiers firmly established Brighton as the city of self-indulgent pleasure. In fact, so notorious was Regency Brighton that the famous novelist Jane Austen chose the city as the site of giddy Lydia Bennett’s elopement with George Wickham in her novel, Pride and Prejudice.

Prinny’s biggest contribution to the town is also the top highlight of Brighton today:  the Royal Pavilion – an exotic palace the Prince Regent had constructed to impress his Catholic widower mistress, Mrs Fitzherbert. Redesigned by the famous architect John Nash in 1815, the palace is a bewildering amalgam of Indian, Chinese and Regency architecture and well worth a visit. 

Brighton is a city that continues to attract pleasure-seekers from all over the world, just as it did during the Regency period . It has something for everyone: history, culture, entertainment and a vibrant nightlife. No wonder then that it is the happiest city in the UK.
