So, here is one not-so-negative review from me. This hotel from the outside looks stunning but when you enter inside, you will immediately realise how dated the interiors of the hotel look. Some people complained about the dirtiness of the hotel but for me the hotel and my room looked clean throughout. Maybe they sorted the issue out.
The staff at the reception was extremely helpful so huge kudos to them!
This also one of the few hotels left in Brighton (if not in the UK) which has smoking rooms available. So if you are smoker, you will absolutely appreciate this.
The hotel doesn't have any wifi connection which is unacceptable in this day and age. But I understand the hotel has far more issues with its "modern" approach than anything else so if the management ever decides to upgrade the hotel, I am sure they will also address the wifi problem. The only wifi available is on the ground floor, which is free.
The breakfast was very average but certainly filling. Poached eggs, bacon, sausages, chips, ketchup, cereal, marmalade, croissant, bread and hot drinks. None of them were top quality but it serves the purpose.
Would I stay there again? When I first arrived there, I thought I would never come there again. However after having completed my stay, I think I changed my mind, especially knowing the importance of a smoking room for me.
