just had a great weekend in brighton, never stayed at the royal albion before, so was a bit worried with what people were saying on here.
we booked back in november and asked when booking for a high floor room. we got just that, 5th floor.on first impression everything looked really nice, but on closer inspection, as you do. we began to discoverer things.
carpet missing under the bed, the electical sockets were a bit loose on the walls. the main thing for me was there was no air con, tho its in the room. so had to have the windows open during the day, to much traffic noice for the night tho. the net curtains were filthy, what were white are now grey and black along the bottom. ( i must say at this point the house keeping staff were great, the rooms were spotless).
in the bathroom the frame for the shower curtain was hanging away from the roof, other than that the bathroom was good.
with breakfast, well that was just great. eat as much as you like to fill you up for the day.
over all this hotel is ok, tho it could do with a fair bit a maintainance all over.
would i stay there again? yes i think i would as its within a few minutes walk of most places of interest in brighton.
