Stayed here for a cheap few days in Brighton. I'd booked the hotel before I'd read the reviews! When I started to read, I seriously wondered if this was going to be a good idea.
When I entered the room, I was pleasantly surprised, no horror stories to tell, in fact, a neat room with a decent bathroom and shower.
Downstairs, there was spacious bar and lounge although the entertainment consisted of songs from 'way back when' played on a hammond organ interspaced with a session of bingo allthough this had been laid on for a party of visiting pensioners.
The hotel location is superb. Just across the road from the pier so there's a great view during the day, and an equally attractive view at night when the pier's lit up.
Yes, the carpets are a bit threadbare in the odd spot, but this is a grand old regency hotel that's looking not too bad for its age.The surrounding restaurants and bars aren't at all bad either!
In conclusion, it was ideal as a base for a few days away in Brighton. We didn't pay over the top, so we didn't expect over the top quality - we got what we paid for, comfort and and a good location pure and simple
