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.

I stayed quite a few times during January and each time was superb. Each different room was clean, lovely bedding and towels. All the reception staff were very friendly and helpful, so welcoming. The communal areas were all great. A huge bravo and excellent work for the cleaners, they do a wonderful job.

Customer service is simply brilliant. The reception team are really friendly, polite and helpful. Breakfast is the best here. Clean and warm rooms. Bed and linen were comfortable and clean. Carmen and Catherine deserve special mention for being so helpful . The problem with the door lock and being locked out was resolved by them as soon as reported.

We booked this hotel as we were going to a show close by at the Brighton Centre, we have been to Brighton many times and usually stay in a small B&B type accommodation that does not have restaurant etc. We purposely booked here for the promise of a sociable, sea facing lounge, restaurant and bar area offering amazing food as pictured and relaxing atmosphere as also pictured. This meant we would be able to eat drink and walk the short distance to the show without walking in to Brighton main town. However on arrival we were told this area was closed due to refurbishment, we were extremely disappointed about this but went to our room regardless. The room was utterly filthy, dust, dirt, sticky floor, wall paper hanging off the wall, bathroom filthy, headboard filthy and about an inch of dust on it, window filthy etc etc. We were offered another room, which also wasn't great. We decided this along with the facilities not being available as promised we would look for another hotel. We managed to find one also close to the venue with clean room and a working restaurant and lounge etc. When we arrived back to collect our belongings from Selina, we were told that our refund was being processed and would be in our bank in 5 days, as well as apologising for the inconvenience. An hour later we received an email stating that they would now not be giving us the refund and with the reason being that the cost of our room did not include the facilities as advertised upon their website or booking.com or as shown in all the photos and that because we had not taken the upgraded room!! We booked this stay over a month ago, I would've expected an email to tell us that the main facilities which Selina pride themselves on and advertise so clearly on their website were not available, we could've made the choice to cancel our booking then. If they were unable to clean the room which we had booked and paid for and the only clean room is an upgraded one then again that is not our fault. If we wanted to sat in a Travel Lodge with no facilities we could've done so as there was one close by. We booked in good faith and understanding that we were visiting a clean hotel with all the facilities as so predominantly advertised on this hotels website. We feel completely robbed of the money we paid in good faith not to mention that we have also had to pay for another hotel!!! Honestly I have never had such a bad customer experience.

Fantastic bed’s really comfortable Friendly Reception Nothing is too difficult I face Preston Street. If you want quiet on a Saturday night ask for a sea view or facing Little Preston Street. I have my cat with me, she is very relaxed ( long story not for here) Style is excellent. Questionable wall art. ( personal choice ) Bathroom shower is better than my own.

I called this hotel to let them know I was checking in after 11pm. When I arrived, I was told that photo ID was required to check in. This was not communicated on the booking site, in any emails or when I spoke to them. Ok, I explained that my passport is expired and sent for renewal but I have a picture of it. I also had bank cards with me and had already prepaid for my stay. The reception person not only refused to check me in, he offered no solutions or help. Just stared blankly at me and told me to leave the hotel at midnight with no place to stay!!! Whilst I sat on the sofa making phone calls to friends trying to figure out what to do, the staff member then left the area to go sit on a sofa with his laptop. The treatment I received was despicable and dangerous. DO NOT bring your custom to this place, especially as a woman as they do not care about your safety. There are other reviews on Google etc from women feeling unsafe in this place. I am now trying to get a refund but no response so far.

It is standard procedure in the industry to request a form of iD for the safety of all guests. This being said, we are working with our OTA's to make sure this is clearly communicated.

After booking with Booking.com, received an email from Selina demanding I download their app. Having downloaded it, I couldn't access my booking and messaged them to tell them. Received a reply purporting to be from the 'Selina Brighton Team', pushing additional extras on me - priced in US dollars!! - with another link, which went to a 404 error message written in Spanish!! Flakey at best.... I decided to cancel, for which they charged me my FULL booking fee!! Never again. Avoid.

Friendly staff upon arrival, receptionist took an good interest in what we was doing within Brighton during our stay, free teas and coffees available at reception which was nice The room was tidy/clean and well presentable, the bed was very comfy, the room had a nice vibe with the decor The noise outside was kinda bad and impacted sleep, however not the accommodations fault!! A TV in the room would’ve been nice, however the hotel offer free Wi-Fi, which you can use streaming services to watch stuff if you please, there’s plenty things to do within Brighton than just sitting watching TV in hotel, so no Tv is very understandable Would 100% visit again, good staff, friendly
