I was invited to a party in Brighton and wanted an hotel within walking distance of the centre, must have parking and ideally be on the sea. I put in 4 star plus in Last Minute dot com secret hotels and when I confirmed I found I was in the Grand Metropole Hilton. I parked the car easily, the foyer is superb and the staff welcoming although very busy when I checked in. I have used secret hotels before and understandably they cheaper deals tend to get the poorer rooms. I realised that the receptionist was a little coy when I asked about the room and she volunteered that I could change it if I didn't like it; I expected to return to reception! It was half a floor up from the service road at the rear so I went back to reception and without any trouble was allocated a lovely room on the 6th floor with a glimpse of the sea. From then on everything was perfect. The room was quiet, warm. comfortable, had an oblique view of the sea and i slept really well. The swimming pool was clean well run and a joy to use and the left luggage was simple secure and easy. I was able o leave the car there for two days for the price of one as i had stayed there and i had a wonderful time. The building looks superb although I understand there are some on-going renovations but I didn't see them. Well worth staying again and I made a point of telling Jose on reception how impressed i was with the service he and his colleagues in reception and concierge gave. A great weekend with all amenities and friendly service in elegant surroundings.
