I spent two nights at Four Seasons Brighton in August 2011 and I had a lovely stay at this B&B. It was the right choice for a lady travelling alone. Initially I booked a single room for a longer period but then had to make changes to my itinerary at the eleventh hour and the amendments to my booking were arranged by the administration of the B&B very smoothly.
My choice of this B&B was stipulated by the room price. I discovered that generally prices for accommodation in Brighton were no better than in London. I cannot afford to pay much. The price for a single room at Four Seasons is moderate though the room size (as pictured on the hotel’s website) is too small. However I was prepared to spend a couple of nights in a room that is about two square meters large. But when I arrived I was taken to a small double (room No. 2) which as I was told was also used for single occupancy. That was a very nice surprise. Of course I was lucky that the room was not booked for the time of my stay and therefore could be offered to me (for the price of a single room).
Talking about the small double, by my standards the room is great. Not large. But I liked the design and the absence of carpet on the floor. The level of cleanliness at the B&B was beyond my expectations. My special compliments go to towels and bed linen.
The hosts are very nice and caring without being annoying. The breakfast is tasty. I was checking out at 8 am. The previous day I was shy to ask if I could have a snack earlier than the breakfast was served (from 8:30). The hosts told me in the morning I should have done so and offered to have continental breakfast which I refused as I was worrying about the arrival of my self-booked-by-phone taxi. They even told me I could have asked them to book me a taxi. That was really nice!
The location of the B&B is good - within short walking distance to the Royal Pavilion and the Brighton Pier. I took a taxi to get to the B&B from the railway station.
It is not very easy to reach the beach as you have to go down the stairs from the Marine Parade and then cross the road. The beach is not crowded as it is located a little aside from the city center. I can’t help mentioning that it was really windy on the beach. I assume that is one of the reasons why people may prefer to enjoy sun and sea to the other side of the pier.
My overall impression is very positive and I would like to thank the hosts for making my stay at the B&B pleasant.
