My friend was on a business trip and had a good corporate rate for this hotel and we decided to stay one extra night to enjoy Brighton. Location-wise it was excellent as it was off the main boardwalk, facing the sea. However being a typical chain type hotel, it was crazy at the restaurants at mealtimes with poor service. Reception was always too busy and you end up having to wait ages to talk to them about anything. Room was crowded with two large twin beds. Was unbearably hot and windows could not open very far in the late june heatwave when we went. No air-conditioning so be forewarned if staying over summer. Bathroom was small and basic toiletries, nothing exciting. I would only pay for its location and ease of access to seaside and if at cheap corporate rates but not for service, room quality or restaurants. Hotel Du Vin is way nicer and a 10 mins walk away as it's a small boutique hotel. A bit dearer but if you want a nice relaxing holiday with quality rooms and service, then not Hilton Metropole.
