Drakes hotel is very well located and has really cool and chic rooms - a bath facing the sea or a wet room. Several rooms have a beautiful sea view, nevertheless it must be said they might be a bit noisy as the cars pass by.

Room Tip: A good room for me is one that has a sea view, yet given they are right by the street it can be nois...

Second visit to Drakes and still hugely enjoyable. Staff couldn't be more helpful and obliging. The room we had was large and well appointed with a great wet room. The only negative thing we found was that there was a lot of road noise and also from people using the bar and restaurant at night. Secondary glazing would help a lot. Breakfast is varied and very tasty. There is limited parking, but we always managed to be accommodated.

Just lovely, great menu, my girlfriend was well impressed that I booked here, mostly based on tripadvisor.
And we loved the room we had, facing the seafront and a balcony which was great cos we both smoke!

Room Tip: All the front bedrooms have the best view

A fantastic lunchtime experience. We chose from a well selected set menu ... I chose lobster risotto and daube of beef ... beautifully cooked and we'll presented. Extensive wine list. A surprise appetizer of chicken liver parfait was delicious. Gorgeous home made orange and chocolate truffles and pistacio madeleines with coffee left no room for dessert.
The waiter was delightful and upon request the chef came to accept our Thanks.
I would not hesitate in returning.
Although not staying overnight we viewed the feature bedroom ... wow.

I booked a room last minute for my partner and I for a nights stay. The service was fantastic, we were shown to our room and everything explained. The room was gorgeous, from the wet room to the tub over looking the ocean. Couldn't of asked for more and the sunset views over the pier were the cherry on top. Would recommend to anyone and it was worth every penny.

We spent two nights at Drakes for my brother-in-laws civil wedding ceremony so we had the hotel. to oourselves. Rooms were spacioius, modern and beautifully furnished. Dinner was excellent and breakfast was very generous and delicious. What made the weekend such a success was the attendtive, friendly staff and management who went out of their way to ensure each guest was comfortable and looked after. On the night of the ceremony, the young girl behind the bar was still wonderfully friendly, smiling and pouring drinks at 3.30am without the slightest hint of tiredness on her part. - really amazing. The cosiness of this hotel adds to the warm atmosphere and it will definitely be the only place we stay when we visit Brighton again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the ocean with the free-standing bath in the bedroom.
