Having read some of the other reviews after we had booked this hotel we arrived with some trepidation. We originally booked because we paid for two nights at the price that some other places were charging for one night. Yes, the hotel looks tatty from the outside which is clearly why they are doing all the work on it, but the staff were polite, our room was a good size with a (working) jacuzzi bath, and we had a little mezzanine floor with a sitting area in our room. There was a small amount of mould around the edge of the bath, but other than this the room and bedding was clean and serviced daily, and the water was hot. Our room was on the top floor which probably made it quieter than some of the rooms nearer street level and we were able to keep the window open as the room was rather warm. We had a lovely view of Brighton Pier and were obviously in a great location. Can't comment on the food as we ate out instead. The first morning we did go down to breakfast but as we were quite late, the queue was long and it didn't look as if we would be able to get a table. Overall, don't book if you're looking for a 5 star experience, but if you want a cheap, comfortable place to stay in a great location, and you manage to avoid the basement rooms, I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.
