Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have stayed at BLANCH HOUSE on several occasions over the last few years and it never fails to please. Everyone is so friendly and helpful you are made to feel very special. We particularly love the bar area so relaxing for a pre-or post dinner drink. The position is very good only a few minutes to walk down to the seafront in one Direction and in the other you have many good pubs, bars and restaurants.

A lovely fresh smell as you enter the hotel. The receptionist was very nice and helpful and showed me up to my room. She explained about the shower taking time to heat up due to old piping but that wasn't a problem. A nice touch with the homemade biscuits. The room was very clean and comfortable The bathroom was tiny and some people may think the size of the shower is very small as you are very limited to any movements trying to wash yourself or bending down to pick up your shower products. Not much room to put your wash bag. Overall,it's a lovely clean hotel and I would definitely recommend it. I will be returning to Brighton in the next month so I will definitely book this one again,due to the detail attention to cleanliness.

We first visited here around 20 years ago. It was miles ahead of the usual Brighton hotels then, and we fell in love with its style and ambience, the warm welcome and the "nothing is too much trouble" attitude. Fast forward to 2023 and very little has changed. It's just as stunning and beautiful as it ever was. Each room is unique, and you're made to feel that way upon arrival too. The reception area / bar has the feel of a private members club but without any of the hoighty toightyness often associated with them. Highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed here last weekend for 3 nights. Blanch house was clean, welcoming and a few minutes walk from the pier and town. Nothing was too much trouble. I highly recommend this place and we will definitely be back.

Wonderful, good value stay with the most welcoming staff. We stayed in the Orchid room which wasn't the biggest but was good value for money for Brighton. The hotel has a great location, near attractions but away from the noise. Shaka on reception deserves a special mention, his advice and help was superb. Breakfast is contental and a great start to a new day. Thank you

Lovely hotel, clean and very comfortable. The decor is very different and we loved it. We were in the Alice room. The staff are very nice, welcoming and friendly, can’t do enough for you. Insisted on taking bags to our room. Breakfast is continental and a very pleasant change. Hotel in a good place for getting to the sea front and town centre. Definitely be back!! Thanks for a great couple of days!

Absolutely lovely place to come and stay. A short walk from the beach and town centre. Arrived to be greeted with friendly and enthusiastic staff who were than happy to help us park outside with a parking permit. We were generously upgraded to the largest room in the hotel for no extra cost as it was my daughters first time in Brighton! Beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable bedroom and a lovely continental breakfast included with the room. Would definitely recommend coming and staying here.

Amazing Customer service from all staff, management and especially Janet. They truly do go out of their way to ensure we have a great stay. The rooms are really comfortable and always clean. Great location seconds away from the sea view, walking distance to all shops & amenities. Its our second visit and wont be our last. Highly recommended.

We have just returned from a lovely weekend at Blanch House. The service was excellent, everyone we spoke to was friendly, chatty, and polite. The room was clean and perfectly equipped. The breakfast, although only continental was great quality and tasty - the fruit salad was delicious! I anticipated parking would be an issue, however, we were able to park within Zone C easily. We can't wait to return and stay again!
