Don't do what we did, we thought we were on the Hotel Website and clicked on Contact us to complete by phone and found we had paid over £100 more than the advertised price for a 2 nght stay, with Central Reservations.com the £40 deposit was non refundable -- BIG MISTAKE. We could have stayed at The Thistle for the Same amount. I did quote them the Web Price but was told no, that price is not current,
The hotel itself was dirty the carpet in the room smelt of Wet Dog, could not see out of the Windows which were filthy, mind you all we wanted was a bed and shower as such the beds were comfortable and a nice size room, the bedding was clean but nothing else, the Hotel does not respond to complaints.
On the plus side the water was always hot and a good flow and the heated towel rail was a comfort in the morning. Brighton itself was wonderful, the Restaurants, Shops etc. and the locals were very friendly, the show Rock Around The Clock was a great value for money night out.
We tried the breakfast once, the butter although cold was rancid obviously through being put out and then back in the fridge and out again, not nice. The dining room was depressing and looked like the remains of a Chimps Tea Party, The second day we decided health was more important than money so had breakfast out.
If you book it right, you know you aren't going to get anymore than 1950's comfort but at least you get what you pay for!!!!
