We thought this hotel offers a great location, it's a ten minute bus ride away from the beach and town centre, offers free parking and a free breakfast included within the prices of the room. The location is on the main road, however... it wasn't too noisy and the views were stunning! You can see a lot of country side stretching out to the sea.
The family run establishment offers good priced food and the staff are friendly and professional. The lady who greeted us even showed us to our room, explained how to travel into town and seemed happy to help us with information as it was our first time in Brighton. We stayed in the room with the four poster bed which was lovely and clean, perfect for couples!!
Parking in Brighton is expensive, which is why we decided to leave the car at the hotel on both days. Travelling into the town and beach area is so cheap and we saved some money using the friendly and very frequent bus service. We didn't have to worry about paying £20 per night like some hotels in the main city centre.
Overall, I feel this hotel provides a warm welcome to it's guests, suitable for couples and individuals more than families. We definitely would stay in this hotel again, the location is very convenient and prices are reasonable, the friendliness also added to our experience, making it a highly enjoyable stay.
