We have stayed in Brighton on a number of occasions and by far this has to be the best location as it is right on the sea front has the lanes and the pier in spitting distance. There is a lovely sitting area outside with comfy chairs and tables and a fab place to meet up for the evening ahead. Rooms are really nice big and clean and a large clean bathroom. The breakfast was buffet eat as much as you like arrangement with a good choice from a full English to cereals and fruit etc so enough selection for the fussiest of eaters. We used the hotels car park which had a standard evening rate of £23 so about the same for most of Brightons secure car parks. The rooms had coffee and tea making facilities but only 4 small milks and 2 very small biscuits so it wouldn't be a big ask to have some additional milk and a few more biscuits. The biggest negative is the rooms do not have air conditioning but I suppose that is due to the hotels age and it is impossible to have the windows open as t s very noisy in Brighton on a Friday night but what do you expect in such a location. If you want to stay in a nice hotel for a night or two and you are going out on the town then you cannot do better but if you like an early night and a good nights sleep then chose somewhere less busy and quiter.
