Although we visited Brighton with no plans to overnight, we popped in the hotel and were convinced to. Although the normal rates are pretty high, probably due to low occupancy, they offered a fantastic rate for 3 people and in addition, we were allocated a room with 3 double beds and window overlooking the sea.
The room was recently refurbished, very clean and with all necessary amenities - kettle, coffee, tea, tv et al.
The breakfast was plentiful and delicious with fresh ingredients and offerings from scrambled eggs and sausages to dried fruits and cereals. Also, the coffee was very good (when usually hotel breakfast coffee is always pretty bad...).
The staff were all very kind and smartly dressed.
Although from outside it comes across as a rather old hotel in need of refurbishment, the property is absolutely fantastic, full of character and an authentic English oasis.
