Went with my partner for 3 nights for New Year’s Eve. We have stayed here many times and have always found it to be average. This time will sadly be my last. Although the outside has been painted ect, the inside is becoming very old and tired. We were given a room in the

Where’ S best to park
Honestly you dont have too many choices. Only payed parking down or up to road which is free after 6 or 7 pm untill 8 next day. I would recommend to take a pic to the code of pay machine so you can pay online or even to extend just in case you need more time. Is much better than face a parking charge notice. All the best !

Does this hotel have a swimming pool?
The worst hotel in Brighton! The only chance you have of a swimming pool is if the century old or more rusty pipes break!! Which could well happen. The place is falling apart and filthy!

"Although the hotel has a lift, I don’t think I would go if I were disabled. At the weekends it can be noisy from outside."
"Ask for a sea view room"
"Best views on on the front but traffic can be busy unless you want a higher floor it may be quite."
"Make sure you don’t get a basement room"
"Ask for a sea view room"
