“Massive room, friendly service”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

Me and 3 of my girlfriends stayed here on Friday night. We had booked a family room (1 double bed and 2 singles). Upon arrival we were served by very friendly staff and checked in with no problems. We were amazed at how big our room was which was more like a suite with the lounge area and big tv! After a few glasses of champagne in the room, we rung reception to call us a cab which theu were happy to do and which they called our room when it arrived! Perfect start to our night in brighton!

A lovely stay in a nice spacious room !

Group of 11 stayed for one night ranging from single room, double room, triple room, and the hen suite. The hen suite was superb- spacious, spectacular view, clean, modern, luxurious, perfect for a group of friends. The other standard rooms were basic and a little dated but reasonable. The location was spot on, right on the sea front, the staff were helpful and friendly, and the breakfast was delicious and again very reasonably priced. Whilst parking is limited there is a large secure car park literally a few minutes walk away.

We stayed in this hotel in December 2013 for just one night in a sea-facing room. The room was very small and not designed in the best way. On opening the door, the bed could be seen which is not ideal. The bathroom was a good size (surely, they could have made the room slightly bigger and the bathroom smaller?) and clean. The water pressure was not great, so showering was quite difficult. The room could do with redecorating, including making the walls a bit thicker (the lift outside was quite noisy). Breakfast was a semi-buffet; our order for hot food and drink was taken once, but no-one approached us again after that. Only toast and juice was available afterwards if we were still hungry. Overall, not the best service or hotel I’ve stayed in during my travels, but it was ok for just one night.

This hotel was clean and tidy, fair sized room that was clean though very bare. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. We only stayed 1 night and was a fair price at £49.

The only downside was that there was no parking spaces available (they only have 11) though along the street I managed to find a space. Constantly throughout the early hours of the morning it sounded as if someone was collecting the bins and dragging them back and forwards every half hour, hence I did not sleep properly from 4:30 onwards.

Other than that, you can't go wrong for £50 a night.

Can't fault this hotel, my mother has mobility problems so we were given a huge beautifully presented room. The breakfast was amazing. The staff were very professional. Altogether a very pleasant experience.

Reviewed 5 March 2014

I originally booked a standard room for two nights at the discount rate but, following Tripadvisor reviews, had decided we'd probably upgrade. This was offered to us immediately on checking in so never got to see the standard room but sea-view upgrade definitely worth the extra £10 per night. We were on the 4th floor so very quiet and great views of the stormy sea. The room was very hot but we managed to turn the radiators off and prop the windows open. We enjoyed it all so much, we booked another night (25th -27th Feb) and managed to get this at just about the same rate rather than the more expensive Thursday rate. All the staff were really friendly and helpful and the breakfast is great.
Yes, the carpets were a bit stained in places, the lift is very creaky and there was a lumpy (but not mould smelling) patch on the bedroom wall but none of this affected our stay at.
It's a great location for a fraction of the price of other hotels I've stayed in nearby. I've been to Brighton a lot but it was nice to venture in the Hove direction for a change and the hotel's location is perfect for this.
Will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Higher floor is nice and quiet (we were in 419). Lift is a bit temperamental but just keep pressing...

Went for a long weekend in February, room was small but clean, nice big bath but very deep could be an issue if you had any mobility issues! Couldn't get any cold water from the tap in the sink it was hot! Also the room was excessively hot and there was no way of controlling it! Although the radiators were off - so maybe not something they could easily address! But I suppose it was ok!
