My girlfriend booked this hotel through Travel Republic as an upgrade to the Travelodge we had originally booked...for £6,00 more. The hotel is right on the sea front so the sea view are second to none...for the price of a £10.00 upgrade. We were greeted with the usual local Eastern European accent (guess locals need to get work elsewhere) who were pleasant enough, then informed us that if we wanted to park in the shared hotel car park it was an extra £15.00 per night, something to bear in mind if your running on a budget, the alternative of parking on the side streets can be a bit hazardous due to parking permits being needed.
Once we got our room, although there is a lift, we had to negotiate a rabbit warren of corridors to get to our room (we did not bother with the sea view upgrade and settled for views into other rooms in the opposite hotel). The room was tidy, clean and looked like it had had a recent attempt to modernise it, although the bathroom seemed to have been left for a later date.
The following morning we got an early morning call...from the room above. Clearly the material separated the floors is nothing more than a plank of wood and plasterboard. The noise was horrendous and the person inflicting the noise was doing nothing more than walking around the room...the addition of a pair of heels and she (I presume it was a she...its is Brighton after all) meant we were wide awake.
We had a drink in the bar when returning after a night out, the bar is pleasant and as soon as a receptionist is available...you will get served.
Conclusion...an 'OK' hotel but don't pay too much to stop here....and take earplugs.
