Stayed here as we were going to the Brighton Centre (which is just one hotel width away). Got a very good rate by booking on line early and paying up front and was pleasantly surprised by the room which was quite small but nicely appointed and clearly recently refurbished. As mentioned in other reviews, the car park is a bit of a challenge but make sure you try and get on the lower floor as access to the hotel is easier.
One issue I have with all hotels in Brighton is that none of them seem to cater for people visiting the Brighton Centre in terms of food availability as the restaurant closes at 22.00. However, as ther are other restaurants around this is not a huge problem, just an annoyance.
Had a slightly strange experience at Breakfast; presented ourselves at the desk and were greeted by a very surly lady who muttered "there's tables down the far end, you can go and find one". We thought this a bit odd but went as we were told and, of course, there were no tables. However, a waiter found us a table that had just been vacated and cleared it for us. My wife was very happy with this as on the next table, having breakfast, were Artem Chigvintsev and Ian Waite from Strictly Come Dancing!
Just a word of caution if you want to use the spa: it's closed on Wednesday.
