We stayed here 3 nights from 26th June to 29th June.
We arrived late on the Thursday the room we were allocated 322 was meant to be a premium room not very premium in my opinion. Not only were there broken sash cords on the window the door lock was extremely loose, the sink plug would not let water out and the hand rail/soap dish holder was hanging off the wall. Having stayed at 8 other of the Hotel Collection's hotels I have never had a mantanence issue before, we could not be moved that night at the room was full.
The following day we were moved to 323, the room was in a much better condition maybe slightly tired especially the bathroom but have lovely views of the sea, and was much more comfortable. The staff at this hotel are a credit to management because they really do try to go the extra mile to help you out. The food in the hotel restaurant (we had dinner there 3 nights) was good a value for money, car parking was £23.00 per night but secure and no more expensive than any where else in Brighton. Yes the rooms do need a make over but are clean, and I believe this may be happening in the near future.
Over all I would stay here again, thanks to the hard work of the staff. Lets hope the Hotel Collection backs them up with investment in the building to bring it up to the quality it deserves, like some of their other hotels.
Brighton is expensive but over all this was value for money.
