“Most perfect romantic stay”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

Stunning sea views from a deep double bath in an exceptional location. Absolutely incredible food in the restaurant with a delicious 24 Hr cocktail service. Very attentive and welcoming staff. Most luxurious bed imaginable. An ideal night for a taste of paradise.

Room Tip: Outstanding sea views.

after reading the great reviews on this hotel we were so looking forward to a two night stay. On arrival we were greeted and quickly checked in and we ordered sandwiches which were bought to our room. Our room was a circular king with sea view. On first impressions looked nice. However the weather outside was terrible and the draught through the windows was horrendous. So much so the heating was on full for the rest of that day and night. Cannot understand why there are no drapes or blinds at the windows as to shut the shutters is a bit of a pain. I personally find it hard to sleep with daylight streaming through. The noise was also unbearable. The little extras ie water coffee, tea toiletries are great. But no where really to hang clothes or put shoes. Also not very keen on the wet room - no real privacy. Sky package great and cannot fault the restaurant or room service. However I would not return and feel it a bit overpriced.

We took advantage of the '2 Course Dinner Bed and Breakfast package' to stay for one night after visiting the Brighton Pavilion and Turner exhibition. My wife is disabled and the staff were very understanding and helpful. We stayed in rooom 1 --just 2 steps from reception. The bathroom was magnificent with a large wetroom. The view of the pier and wheel from the bedroom was great. Being right on Marine Parade, I took the precaution of taking some earplugs and had an excellent night's sleep! The room had a good Sky TV pacakge with sports coverage.
The evening before arriving, the hotel contacted us to confirm arrangements and make some specific arrangements for my wife.
I fancied a preprandial stroll and the hotel staff recommended visiting Brighton Rock and the Black Dove --both within 200 yards. I added the Camelford Arms to complete a short circuit before the heavy rain and wind started.
The dinner in the restaurant was excellent, as was the breakfast.
The standard of decoration in the hotel was very good.
We will definitely add Drakes to our list of hotels to visit again.

Room Tip: Take some earplugs for room 1 and enjoy a long shower!

We thoroughly enjoyed our two day stay. It's not the cheapest hotel in Brighton but is head an shoulders above some of the large hotels usually associated with the town and you are unlikely to be disturbed by a stag/hen party returning in the early hours after a 12 hour drinking marathon. The restaurant is fantastic and heartily recommended.

We took the Bijoux room at very short notice during a one night trip to Brighton. The Bijoux room, city facing, on the first floor was a decent size, I'd say around twenty square metres. The bath was a mice touch although the wet room which you can shower in is not for everyone. Everything literally gets wet including the toilet roll.

The city view rooms are basically do not have a view. The windows are frosted and backs onto some residential properties. Not a disaster, but something to be aware of when booking.

Breakfast service was nice and the food was well prepared. Staff overall made the experience a nice one.

Drakes is a moden hotel with beautiful rooms over looking the sea. The staff could'nt do enough to make our stay a memorable one, proffessional, friendly and the monitor individual requirements. The food in the restaurant was out of this world. We highly recommend this hotel for its quality

What a fabulous stay at Drakes. Fantastic room, amazing free standing bath over looking the sea, as well as a lovely shower room etc. We had a very good meal in the restaurant, cocktails and then a great night out in Brighton. The staff were exceptionally friendly - cant wait to go back.
