Lovely b&bPosted Sep 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed for two nights for our ten year wedding anniversary. We had an email prior to arriving to sort parking voucher, arrival times and a code to get access to the building. When arrived we was greeted. Helped to sort our parking. Our bags taken to our room and a bottle of champagne, what a lovely touch. The staff were welcoming, attentive and helpful. Breakfast was excellent. All freshly made. A lovely touch was cold drinks available free as well as the usual hot ones. Would recommend.

5 day stayPosted Jul 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
Firstly the place is listed as a hotel on hotels.com, however it is a bed-&-breakfast. I was in Brighton for 5 days for business and thought of putting myself in a 'hotel' near the beach/pier, and also give business to local people instead of corporate hotel chains. To my disappointment it was a bed and breakfast and had really tiny rooms. I reached there at 10:30pm on Sunday and had to wait 30 min outside calling all the numbers I could find before someone finally came to open the door. I was made to pack my bag and change the rooms 2 times in 5 night stay - that's not convenient. If you are travelling for a day or two its okay, however if you are planing to stay a bit longer just book yourself into a proper hotel for the same cost. I would still like to highlight the fact that the staff was EXTREMELY POLITE and I would only recommend the place because of Adri and Karl (they run the business). In general, a good clean place to stay for a night or two but not for any longer than that.

A 4 star guest house is not a 4 star hotel.Posted Jul 10, 2013
Pros: Good location, clean with a good breakfast.
Cons: No lift, very small, cramped room, refrigerator not working.
Location: One block from the sea front, close to shopping and an easy walk to The Lanes, great restaurants and the Pavilion.
The Sea Breeze is a guest house rather than a hotel - a distinction that was not clear on the web site. It is advertised as a four star establishment but there is a huge difference between a four star guest house and a four star hotel. The guest house was very clean, pleasantly furnished, there was good Wi-Fi and a flat screen TV on the wall in the bedroom and the one staff member on the premises was very friendly and helpful. But - there is no lift and we had to struggle up two flights of narrow stairs with our suitcases. The room was so small one of us had to sit on the bed (feet up off the floor!) so the other could move around. If the door to the tiny closet was left ajar anyone using the tiny bathroom couldn't open the door to get out. There was a small, battered fridge on the floor in the corner but it didn't actually keep things cold. Like many UK hotels there were no face-cloths provided and no air-conditioning and the "king size" bed would be a queen size in the US. All these things I would have expected from a "budget" or two star hotel and I realize the star system is somewhat random but no hotel would be considered four star without a lift, a working refrigerator (preferably in a piece of furniture), a fitted closet and room to move past another person. We looked into another of the rooms and it was significantly larger so I would advise asking for a front (platinum) bedroom.

Great guesthouse! Nice people. Great location. Rather the money go local than to a big hotel. No complaints AT ALL!!

Excellent option, great hostsPosted Jun 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
Great value, great breakfast, great location but best of all the hosts were so understanding and flexible with our situation. You don't find customer service like that very often. Recommend.

Beautiful placePosted Jun 1, 2013
Pros: The hospitality and they style of the decor. Also close to great eat outs and town centre.
Cons: The fact we had to leave!
Location: Close to everything
My partner and i had such a lovely stay at this hotel. The owners/staff were so friendly and made you feel like you were staying with family rather than at a hotel. The place is beautifully decorated and the room we had was very tasteful. We were on the top floor which was a fair climb and I believe the only access is by stair case so I would recommend you ask for a floor lower down if you're not good with climbing stairs... However the staff were awesome and offered to carry our bags all the way up for us. The bed was so comfortable and the bathroom was great with really nice shampoo and body wash. Everything you needed was available in the room including a hot water bottle which won me over. They have a breakfast room and they cook to order for you using local ingredients which were delicious. Wifi is available and worked well. Car parking costs 10 pounds and it is on the street wherever you can find a spot (they give you a map with directions to the best parking spots ) This accommodation has been one of our favourite places to stay while on holidays in the UK
