We got a very good deal for the weekend; partly because of the bad weather and early January apathy. As I have stayed in the hotel before, I had a bit of experience and knew what to expect. It turned out to be a bit better.
The check in was good and quick. The lady at the reception was very nice. The room we got was with sea view even we did not pay for this. The view was fantastic.
Now the bad points: The hotel is very shabby and looks unkempt. It is a grand building, but looks like the owners do not care about it as long as it makes money. A pity really.
The room was a bit weird on the structure but spacious. The bed was nice, the TV was small and has only 5 channels. The windows would not open or shut properly were making a weird noice when it was windy. The central heating was good and the room was very warm. The bathroom was ok, but shower was fixed and it took some time to work it out. We got a breakfast at half price and it was reasonable, I would not be paying the full price for this kind of breakfast though. They also had a buffet style dinner for £10 which is not bad but there are plenty places in Brighton to eat out so we never tried it.
It was a nice stay at the discounted price.
