My mother, being too lazy to clear the dining table, decided that we should all spend our hard earned cash on going to a hotel for Christmas and after very little research, booked the three night residential package here for £350. Sharp collective intake of breath from all of those family members with small children or about to be made redundant.
The staff were very welcoming and went out of their way to ensure our stay was comfortable - it was only my mother who managed to moan about anything, which would have been remedied with a call to housekeeping. We were fed so well that it was no problem to get up early to have breakfast with my baby niece, it meant there was longer to digest! We didn't have to lift a finger to clean up after her, which was great. The buffet meals were copious and varied and we had staff to attend our table each time.
My room was generously sized and I had a large double bed, even though I was on my own and had a large flat screen tv. The bathroom may have been dated but was spotlessly clean. The built-in hair dryer was supplemented with a professional quality one in stored the wardrobe. It would have been useful to have been able to control the temperature without opening a window, but there was still snow on the ground at the time of our stay, so I quite appreciate why the heating was on full-tilt.
The central shopping area is about ten minutes walk away, as is Brighton Pier.
