The Courtlands Hotel is based in large old Victorian houses linked together, so the rooms are all very different. We stayed here for two nights in July for our son’s wedding because the hotel was convenient for both the wedding ceremony and the reception. The attraction for us was the hotel’s car park which is very useful for a place like Brighton where parking is always difficult and expensive.
Our room on the second floor was just big enough; it had a well equipped bathroom but was let down by cracked floor tiles. Unfortunately it was facing the sun and was too hot and poorly ventilated. It was also over the car park and in the early morning we were disturbed by noise from people walking past.
The lounge and public rooms are quite well furnished and comfortable and give a better impression than our bedroom.
It seemed expensive but cheaper than most hotels in Brighton. We were asked for payment on arrival which is unusual.
Breakfast was good but the service was poor on Sunday morning (but was OK on Saturday).
