Built in the late Georgian period by Amon Wilds, Drakes was originally two town houses designed by architect Charles Busby to complement the fine Regency houses of the area. With commanding sea views, Drakes can be found near to the site of the old Chain Pier, Britain’s earliest pier, which was used as a ferry embarkation point from Brighton to Dieppe and sadly collapsed in the storms of 1896. The property remained as a private residence until approximately 45 years ago when it was bought by Mr and Mrs Simmonds and was known as “The Simmonds Hotel”. The present owner purchased the sadly dilapidated property in 2002. Since then, 43 and 44 Marine Parade have been sympathetically renovated, by award-winning architect Michael Phillips and designed by Tim Shepherd in a project costing more than £2.5 million, to form Drakes, a stylish, contemporary boutique hotel and equally superb fine dining restaurant.
