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.

This was our third stay here, we have always loved the location as right on the seafront, took the offer of an upgrade as was my husbands birthday, however felt the standard room we had before was of better quality, the fridge in the upgraded room had the plug cut off? The chair under the tv was covered in stains and the bathroom looked like it needed a gd spring clean. The reception did remove the upgrade charge from my bill once I said this to them, so can’t fault their service with that regard.

Another valentines stay at malmaison, we really like this hotel. The marina view is lovely (shame the weather was so bad) from our room. The rooms are modern and comfortable, bed and pillows are comfy. Tea and coffee facilities in the room with chocolates and biscuits which are nice touches. Handy to have a mini fridge too. Will say the aircon kept turning off in the night which was annoying. The weather was really bad so you could hear the wind whipping outside even with the windows closed. The shower was quite mouldy and could do with the sealant being replaced. None of that impacted our stay but thought worth mentioning. Free car park is handy. Restaurants underneath the hotel on the boardwalk if you don’t fancy the hotel one. Would stay again

Hotel entrance a bit weird but inside v nice, staff really nice, room excellent, bed comfy. Had room service both nights which is why it's not 5/5. First night was 1.5hrs after order and only when I called to check on eta. Had free drinks due to an eco service where you forego the room clean which is a great idea. But drinks were on the bill. Room service second night missed off the cheese but somehow charged me for 2 drinks I didn't have nor order. Food was v v tasty though. Would stay again

2nd visit. The marina is easy to find and parking is free. We stayed in room 212 which is a small double. Chelsea was friendly and helpful when we checked in. Chelsea also helped me with a later check out over the phone. She makes us feel very welcome and is an asset to the hotel. We ate in the restaurant one night, good food and service. The room feedback is similar to before; 212 is smaller but has all you need. I really like that you have lots of plug sockets in convenient places. I would visit again.

Just come back and wouldn’t stay again. We booked a twin room and were at the back. It all looks tired, we booked this last year and the room we were given was an accessible room. The bathroom was awful, I felt like I was in a care home. Nothing like the photos. The disabled shower was very poor, was expecting something much nicer for what we paid. Mold on the window frames. £10 for an Uber into Brighton. Parking is good but wouldn’t go back. Much nicer places to stay for less money.

The hotel was clean and the outlook from the public rooms was great. Also free parking was a definite benefit.The mural like wallpaper in the room was not to my taste and the room itself was adequate if cramped as was the bathroom, also surprised not to find a bottle of water in the fridge. Breakfast was fine but not good value.

Meeting a friend in Brighton so I booked a two night stay at the Malmaison. It's at the Marina a little way out of town. Plenty of free parking at the multi-storey car park next door which was handy. I had a fairly compact double room with a very comfortable bed and really decent powerful shower. I was less keen on the toilet which was in an alcove and I had my knees in my face when I sat on it. A very clean modern hotel with pleasant helpful staff. The breakfast was too expensive I felt at £21 so I used a cafe opposite who did it for less than half that. Zico I think it's called. There's also a Wetherspoons pub at the marina and I used that as well. Lovely views from the hotel over the marina and the coastal cliffs. I would imagine the bar and deck are lovely on a summer's day. Overall an enjoyable couple of days spent staying here.

I popped into the hotel this morning for a coffee after a run along the beachfront. I decided to have a breakfast. The full English breakfast was excellent, eggs just how unlike them. While waiting I had some pastries from the buffet they were fresh and still warm from the oven. The service from waiting staff licker, (I think I spelt it right) and Michele was excellent nothing was to much trouble even though you could see they were run off their feet. This made my morning even more enjoyable. I will definitely be back for more. Great value great service 😁

Went for Sunday lunch & to look at a function room to book for a private event. The hotel felt welcoming and had a funky interior design not blandly like some corporate hotels. The lunch was very tasty , nicely cooked chicken with a fresh salad bar to use as well. The puddings which I didn’t have looked very nice . The room we looked at was nicely presented and had fab marina & sea views .The lady I dealt with was professional and helpful with ideas. This hotel is a little different from many in Brighton and I like its individuality, good quality food , good customer service and fantastic views .

The entrances to the hotel weren't very obvious and we walked around the block before finding the entrance. The hotel is in a great location and feels more like you're in a private member's yacht club. We brought our dogs who were made welcome. The doggy goody bags weren't in the room although thr staff put them to one side and gave them to us on departure. The room felt very small compared to the Malmaison in Birmingham that we'd stayed at the week before which is why we've scored it slightly lower. Still a very good stay. Be careful when using the neighbouring car park. The spaces are very tight, as are the turns that take you between the various levels.
