First the good : Great location. Close enough to everything, but far enough away to minimize noise from clubs and drunks (a perennial issue in Brighton). Public areas smart enough. 24-hour bar for guests. Polite staff. Comfortable bed and quiet room (no noise from traffic, drunks or clubs.
Now the not so good : Tiny car-park both at the front and rear of hotel. Might as well admit to yourself you're going to have to park off-site. Our room was tiny. Just fitted a bed and wardrobe and not much else. View from window was directly onto fire escape (room 301). Window opened (but unlockable, so leave the crown jewels at home or wear them at all times) but had to be wedged up with a book to keep it open. Absolutely no air movement at all. Despite storms and freezing weather outside, the room remained at an unbearably warm temperature. Tea & coffee facilities, but bare minimum of supplies provided. Don't expect more than one cuppa each.
Have stayed in worse, but have stayed in better too. Brighton hotels are expensive so IMO should try harder to earn their rates.
