I booked this hotel for a hen party based on all of the great reviews I read on Trip Advisor. I can't stress how much we loved this place; we are all a fairly hard to please bunch when it comes to hotels and restaurants etc but we all agreed that it far exceeded our expectations and was probably one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. It helped that we got a great price!
I was afraid that the place might be a bit too 'out there' but it's not at all. The hotel itself is beautiful; the decor is young, vibrant and funky. The walls are white but there are splashes of colour everywhere which immediately helps to soften the feel and creates a calming yet warm atmosphere. There are cute touches everywhere too; from coloured lighting to funky artwork - and this also helps to stop the hotel from being too minimalistic.
The rooms are fabulous. We had a twin room on the first floor which was very light and airy - this was vital because our room faced the street and so we had to have our blind closed more often that we would have liked The walls were white and curved contrasted by a pink/purple carpet and bed throw (the colours differ depending on your floor, so can be pink and purple, green and blue or orange). There was also a light set into a little curved hole in corner of the room that changed colour - every room had this and although it may sound tacky it was actually really soothing and / or energising (dependent on the colour!) and was one of our favourite features of the rooms. This can obviously be turned off at night though so don't worry! The beds were extremely comfortable and a good size for a single. The shower and toilet and wash area were in a small area before the beds - we really liked these however note, there is no separate door to this area - the shower and bathroom doors are made from a slightly frosted type of glass and because of this you could see the silhouette of the person in both - much to our amusement! You certainly need to be comfortable with the other person if you choose to stay here!
The rooms were also really sound-proofed - we barely heard much street noise and we never heard our neighbours once.
I didn't notice the lack of bedroom storage as we were only there for a few nights, but the wardrobes were a sufficient size and whilst there were no drawers, there was a shelf in the wardrobe which was perfectly suitable for all non-hangng items. I could maybe see this causing problems if you were staying for a week or two.
We stayed as part of the B&B package - the food was great and the service excellent. The staff were only to happy to help and service was with a smile! (note however, the cooked breakfast costs an extra £4.50).
Other staff around the hotel were equally as helpful and friendly. This includes the reception area and the bar staff who made us fabulous cocktails - in fact the bar is a must see, it's spacious, funky and very modern and when we came back to the hotel around 1am after a night-out, it was very lively and a great place for a night-cap or no doubt more.
Overall, we loved our stay and I can honestly say that we will all definitely stay here again when we re-visit Brighton - I simply can't imagine staying anywhere else!
