It’s a beautiful Saturday afternoon and we are on route to Brighton Marina – Britain’s largest and chicest marina may we add!

Amongst the boutiques and restaurants sits Malmaison Brighton. Overlooking the water, Malmaison is a luxurious, contemporary hotel with 73 unique bedrooms, conference facilities, a restaurant and a bar. Having previously visited the hotel for afternoon tea and conference meetings, today we were back – for probably the most fun experience – Bottomless Brunch at Chez Mal!

Chez Mal is the hotel’s elegant brasserie. We were sat next to the floor-to-ceiling windows which meant were treated to unadulterated glistening sea views. Behind us was a group of ladies out to celebrate a 30th birthday. They definitely chose the right venue for such an event, as Bottomless Brunch at Malmaison is a stylish and vibrant affair!

With several Bottomless Brunch menus to choose from in the city, Chez Mal’s menu stands out from the rest due to the diverse choice of food offered! You can of course have your typical brunch order of eggs benedict/royal/Florentine/California (which were very tempting) but if you really want to line your stomach for the oncoming prosecco there are many hearty choices such as The Big Mal Breakfast, The Mal Burger and even Steak Frites!  We were very impressed with the menu and after much deliberation, we both went for the Mal Burger – one with bacon and one without!

Then began our 2 hour unlimited prosecco brunch (or Mimosa or Heinekan if you prefer).  A bottle was brought to the table and our glasses were constantly topped up as we enjoyed the beautiful views and relaxing atmosphere.

The food was delicious – and huge! The Mal Burger was served with Guyère, bacon and salad in a brioche bun, accompanied by pommes frites and a beautiful sweet relish on the side!

After eating all this food we felt justified in ordering more prosecco! Another bottle was brought to the table as we continued our 2 hour session.  

The vibe at Malmaison is relaxed and laid-back. It was so enjoyable watching the boats bob up and down on the sparkling water. The service was superb. The staff were attentive and friendly.

Booking brunch at Malmaison gives you a great excuse to spend the day at Brighton Marina. Not only can you enjoy breath-taking views at the magnificent hotel, you can wander along the broadwalk, mooch around the shops and enjoy all the family-themed attractions.

I can’t wait for the next group event with the girls as I’ll definitely be suggesting Bottomless Brunch at Malmaison!

Brunch costs £24.95 per person. You can book yours here.
