My wife and I had a weekend break down in Brighton and we chose this hotels for its location and sea front aspect. I paid a little extra to get a room with a view and we had a nice view of the pier. The hotel itself is very shabby and tired looking, it looks like it was last decorated in the 1970's and they have torn and beaten furniture in the hall ways leading up to the rooms. Rooms are accessible by a tiny lift or staircase and when its busy and the lift is being constantly called, its quicker to use the stairs, The rooms are fairly big, which is what you'd expect from a Victorian built hotel. The room was clean, but drab and one that encourages you to get out and about town, which I guess is a good thing. Its plus side, is the location, its by the coach station and behind the lanes, so once out, your straight in to the bars and restaurant area of the Lanes, its also handy for a stroll on the pier. The rooms are also not very sound proof and you will hear all the night time revelers as they shout and make typical reveler noises :) but then you dont go to Brighton for a rest :) I doubt I would stay at the Royal again.
