The toilet leaked. The shower leaked. There was a connecting door to the other room that we could not lock. There was a disco in progress when we returned to the hotel after our evening meal that seemed to attract the worst possible looking people. The people in the rooms beneath us spent most of the night running up and down the stairs screaming at each other in German. The continental breakfast the following morning consisted of a serve your self buffet of stale croissants, ham and cheese uncovered, a dangerous looking toaster in which you placed the stale looking bread provided, and a half drunk jug of orange juice. BUT we had a beautiful view of Brighton's seafront, the room was huge, and the hotel was situated nicely within walking distance of many restaurants and pubs. For £40 for two people you cannot argue that you get what you pay for, I just would not recommend staying there any longer than one night.
