We booked a Sunday night for my wifes birthday. We had a great day in Brighton and returned to the Lanes Hotel. We met great staff and had a great room on the 3rd floor at the back of the hotel.
Unfortunately that's where it ends. Our room was like a sauna. The radiator was off in our room but in the hallway was on full blast! we tried to turn it off but to no avail! So we opened our room window. Dam pigeons everywhere. The noise kept us awake. Our room was next to the lift and the lift made one hell of a noise as the door rubbed together on opening and closing. We went to bed at 11:30pm and heard every guest using the lift till 3am.
Above us was the noise of gurgling water all night, no idea why? Also because the room was so hot and the window was open we heard the ambulances from the nearby hospital all night.
This could be a great hotel if management fixed the dam lift and fitted radiator stats too. The pigeons need sorting too. Some effort has been made.
On the other hand the room was excellent for £60 and so was the breakfast, ok the sausages are crap and need addressing but having stayed in a lot of hotels it was a good buffet breakfast. The coffee is excellent.
Conclusion: FIX THE LIFT. Sort the radiators and kill the dam pigeons!
Apart from that a dam excellent hotel in a great location close the Lanes. Don't whine about the parking the hotel website is very accurate about this so first come first served on the five spaces. Also free WIFI and that is a real bonus. The staff are great.
