“Sea view weekend”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

We experienced a wonderful weekend at this pretty boutique hotel. Our room though small had a lovely sea view, and the room had all mod cons and was very clean and comfortable. The staff were always pleased to help. The bar is cosy and the cocktails were superb. Parking was arranged for us. Breakfast was great.
Overall a very pleasant stay in a lovely

we stayed on 30th july for one night. our 25th wedding anniversary. The staff are very friendly and the rooms brilliant. Great cocktails in the bar and the hotel is in the perfect place. Very hard to find any fault and cant wait to go back.

Room Tip: make use of the bath!

An absolutely perfect night away at Drakes Hotel. The staff were so helpful, I desperately wanted a Saturday night stay but unfortunately most hotels in Brighton (including Drakes) only offer two night stays at the weekend. I was told to call back nearer the weekend and if a room was still available they would allow it to be used on a one night basis. I called on the Friday (the day before) and I managed to get a circular sea facing kingside room with a beatiful roll top bath in the bay window, which looked out across the road to the beach and sea, with views of the pier. Absolutely perfect to be laid in the bath with my beautiful wife sharing a bottle of champagne as the sun went down. For a romantic getaway, I would definitely recommend the champagne, flowers and chocolate welcome gift. These 'add on's" are usually very poor value, but the champagne was lovely (and £40 from Majestic) the flowers were a lovely bouquet and the chocolates would easily cost £15-£20...the whole lot for £75, which for a hotel is superb value. A few people have mentioned how expensive Drakes is (our room was £275) but it's Brighton so the prices of all hotels are expensive. I found the whole stay absolutely faultless!

We spent one night at Drakes and had a five course meal included
The staff are excellent , professional and very polite.
The room was comfortable, an attic room over looking the sea , the air conditioning was very efficient. The bed was also comfortable.
The White Company are provided as bath products , all of which were very nice.
Our meal was pleasant, the service was very good.
I would stay again, and recommend this hotel.

I took my girlfriend to Drakes for a long weekend. The place is amazing! The staff are very good and friendly, the room was amazing (we had the sea facing circular room) and the food there is very good. Its a bit pricey but worth it as a nice treat. Will definately be back sometime!!!

Room Tip: Go for the sea facing rooms as they have a good view of the pier and sea.

Drakes is a very classy bouquet hotel. The appearance from the Brighton beachside promenade is deceptively "understated" but the excellent and welcoming staff and immediate interior impressions make an immediate impact. The rooms are modern and very comfortable and while the "wet area" shower might not suit every one it is actually extremely practical and efficient with a great shower an a very clever design feature. And if you don't like the idea get a room with a bath and luxuriate with a view of the Brighton beachfront! The bar and restaurant are great for the weary tourist with high quality meals and service backed up by good, knowledgeable staff.
Be aware there are stairs but the climb to a beachfront room is really worth the effort.

Room Tip: Ask for a beach front room with a bath and don't be frightened of the stairs ...... just take th...
