“Friendly Staff, nice rooms ”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for a night. Rooms were really nice. Clean and tidy. The staff were really friendly and helpful behind reception. Nice location on sea front although a little wall to the pier and the main area in Brighton. Would definitely stay here again if can get a good deal.

Stayed May 2014

Nice hotel for a weekend in Brighton!

Parked right at the front of the hotel when we arrived for £18 and were pleased to hear we could leave it there even after check out so we could go for lunch and shopping before heading home on our last day.

Arrived early but room ready to check in. Friendly reception staff. We got a family room in a deal so for two of us this was very large with two windows and a double and single bed. Hotel is a bit old and "rickety" but this is normal for the seafront hotels in Brighton. Bathroom large, shower a little bit tight getting in and out as door opened inwards though! TV a bit on the slow side when responding to remote control commands and not very large. Peaceful nights sleep though, would definitely stay here again although bit of a walk to the pier side of Brighton but perfect for Preston st bars and shops.

We stayed here for the third year in a row for a function. The hotel is being refurbished and they're doing a great job. Our room was spacious and decor was modern and sophisticated. Service was good and food was nice. Can be a little pricey but all the hotels along the sea front are.

We were lucky to receive a free upgrade (teachers took the cheap seats I guess) and got a lovely large room. Sensitively decorated with some original features. Some amazing huge sash windows with views out across the beach / sea. I didn't struggle with traffic noise but my husband did. The room was spotlessly clean. It was a bit strange that there was no room safe or minibar / fridge we did have a Expresso machine though !

Even though it wasn't particulary warm outside the room was baking and with no aircon it might be challenging come the summer months. Hope the have some heavier drapes or reflective curtains for those lovely big windows.

We didn't eat in the hotel but what food we saw going past in the bar looked very good.

A lovely stay with an excellent location.

Reviewed 20 April 2014

Stayed here for a weekend away. Convenient location and average comfort - clean and tidy.

Old hotel - very creaky stairs and floors. Also thin walls - could hear cleaners at 7am / 8am and also hear noise late at night and early in the morning.

Shower - pressure was weak. Warm water. As per previous posts - toilets weak flushing

Very stuffy - would leave the room and come back after 4-5 hours. Room was hot and suffocating (the heater was not on).

I'm usually a big fan of the Accor hotels - but would not come back to this particular hotel.
