4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Older building charm. Room was suitable. The tv had a weird voice in the background and the floor lamp was burnt out. It was not a 5 star, but somewhere between a 3 and 4. Food was excellent. Drinks were £££.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Great location right on the sea front, the lanes car park was right next to it as well so good for parking. Only criticism would be that there wasn’t any hot water from the taps not sure about the bath however.

Great stay

We had a great stay, we had breakfast included which was really nice. The room was satisfactory, only down side was the shower because we couldn’t regulate the temperature but as it’s such an old building we would let it off. The lift was very small so better for people who can take the stairs which were also old due to the age of the building. We really enjoyed our stay, it’s a great location and a beautiful place.

Seaside reverie

Well located, the Hotel is charming. The staff is wonderful, and the downstairs lounges are up to date. The rooms themselves could stand a refresh, and it seems that some of them are in process. There was a regular problem with electricity and the TV that was only resolved on my last night. The staff promptly attended to my complaints and each day an issue was resolved. The bed was a bit hard for my aging back, but that appears to be a British thing. Being on the main drag of the seaside town, the noise from people who were leaving and returning to clubs was ongoing until 5 am but beyond the hotel’s control but they kindly provided earplugs (thanks!) which helped. The ocean view from my room was worth any inconvenience since it was incredible to wake up and see the waves crashing on the shore. Easy walking to all the best Brighton has to offer. Overall, a very good stay of three nights.
