“We'll definitely return”
Reviewed 28 April 2010

We booked in at the Motel Schmotel for two nights on the 25th & 26th April after reading the fab reviews on Tripadvisor and were delighted that our stay lived up to our expectations! We were met by Paul who gave us a great idea of places to eat and drink in the area that had been tried and tested.

Our room was clean and colourfully decorated and the bed was huge.

We opted for breakfast in bed both mornings which was great little touch when dealing with a hangover and the food was scrumptious! We'll definitely return.

We have travelled a fair bit and stayed in many small hotels. What we will say sincerely is that this was central to everything you need, clean, and the service offered was fab.. We would highly recommend this to anyone for a great comfortable stay in a fabulous resort.
Thanks Paul and Amsy x

I have just returned home after a lovely stay at the Motel Schmotel. I must say that I totally agree with all the wonderful things people have said about this B&B before me; it is absolutely an amazing B&B. In fact, it is the best I have ever stayed in. I love everything about it - the location, the service (Amsy and Paul are the best host couple ever, thank you so much for being so very helpful and nice), the rooms (small, but cozy), the decor, the breakfast. I will definitely stay here next time I travel to Brighton. Undoubtedly, you need not look any further for a B&B, choose this one.

Lovely little B&B in a great location. We had the back room on the ground floor which may be a little on the small side for some, but we found it just right, especially at £65 per night! Amsy & Paul are very pleasant and the breakfast is lovely. Hopefully we'll be back later in the year.

Just had a great weekend in Brighton where we stayed at the Motel Schmotel. Just loved the very friendly atmosphere and very comfortable room. Our host Amsy recommended some great local eateries and things to do. Completely loved the breakfast in bed - a luxury definitely worth repeating ! Schmotel is brilliantly located close to all good things in Brighton - we are looking forward to a return visit.

From start to finish our stop at Motel Schmotel was a complete dream.

Perfect location, beautiful décor, delicious food and more importantly two completely lovely hosts in Amsy and Paul who went out of their way to cater for our every whim

Quite literally a home from home.. we will most certainly be back!

We stayed here before a friends wedding and the hosts could not have been more helpful. Cosy clean funky little rooms and breakfast in bed on the first morning! Definately a must for those who like something a little bit less commercial.
