Cosy hotel close to the sea front.

Lovely, cosy hotel with excellent staff and super comfortable beds. Decadently decorated with plush cushions and soft colourings, rose head showers and free WiFi. Comfortable hotel bar is a good place for waiting whilst someone is getting ready.
Parking is organised with a local permit that the hotel give you (£10 per 24 hours) and comes with good directions. We had no problem finding a space about 5 minutes away, which in Brighton is pretty good! We were able to unload luggage from the car outside the hotel first and staff helped us in and to the room.
Good range of cooked breakfast options including for gluten free (and flexibility if you want something not on the menu), with juices, teas, pastries, cereals etc.
Great location being less than 100m from the seafront road and in the heart of Kemp Town. Brighton Rocks bar is two streets away and there's loads else in spitting distance. 8 minute walk to the pier, 12 minutes to The Lanes.
Only negatives would be the room was really warm even when we turned the radiators off, and we couldn't get the temperature of the shower to below scalding. Fine for my husband but uncomfortable for me. Also, being an old building you can hear your neighbouring room guests coming and going. There's no sea views, and out the back its a view of just the back of other buildings. Fortunately though, we didn't need to spend too long looking out the window!
