The Princess Amelia Room is named after the beloved youngest daughter of King George III. Princess Amelia spent five months in Worthing in 1798, as her father believed the sea air would be beneficial to the Princess’s health. It was Princess Amelia’s visit that sparked Worthing’s transformation from a small village to a popular resort. During the 1800s, Worthing attracted wealthy visitors who wanted a seaside retreat that was quieter than nearby Brighton.

With its large windows and high ceilings, the room bathes in an abundance of natural light, and the charming period detail provides a beautiful backdrop for photographs. Refreshed in 2022, the Princess Amelia Room offers a spacious, classic setting – no matter what the occasion.

“My family and I booked two twin rooms in June for a family party in Shoreham. The Burlington was a really nice place. Our room was room 607 fantastic size comfortable beds and great decor. The Burlington has a club but as we were high up didn’t hear any noise. Good English breakfast helpful staff what more could you want. Really happy with our stay.”
