Iconic Brighton hotel to auction luxury furniture

Renowned for its elegance and history, The Grand Brighton hotel is preparing for a refurbishment starting in January 2024. But before the transformation begins, the hotel is offering a unique opportunity to acquire its luxury furniture through a collaboration with hospitality auctioneer Pro Auction.

With a rich heritage spanning 156 years, the iconic Brighton city-based hotel boasts 201 rooms across seven floors, complemented by a majestic original staircase. Celebrities, politicians, and even film and sitcom productions – such as an episode of Only Fools and Horses in 1992 – have graced its halls.

As part of the hotel's refurbishment, the 201 guest bedrooms will be upgraded, following previous renovations in 2013 and 2019. Prior to the commencement of the new design, pieces of the hotel's furniture are to be sold at a fraction of their cost.

"We are thrilled to offer our customers the chance to own a part of The Grand Brighton's opulence," says Pro Auction's MD, Simon Rose. "This is an exceptional opportunity to acquire furniture from one of the city's most iconic hotels."

The first phase of the auction is scheduled for December 19th 2023, featuring an array of furniture from the hotel's guest bedrooms, including beds, bedside tables, wardrobes, desks, chairs, and more. Subsequent sales will occur every five weeks, starting in March 2024.

To preview the available lots, please schedule an appointment directly with the auctioneers.

The live auction sale will take place at the hotel from 10am, with online bidding also enabled – interested parties can register here.
