“Great Staff,Great Location.”
Reviewed 16 April 2010

I decide to take my partner to brighton for the weekend, I had decided to go in the middle of the easter holidays, and the prices of most hotels was too much. I managed to get a great rate for a double room at The Lanes Hotel. When we arrived the room was already prepared for us, and it was 11am when we walked through the door! The room was of an average size, but had tea&coffee making facilities, a flat screen television, and a decent size bathroom with a power shower. I was pleases to find a hotel which still had smoking rooms, that was much appreciated. The staff were great, and very helpful. They advised us on the best places to go to and with taxi numbers, one of girls infact bought me up some tea&coffee when I didnt expect it. Breakfast in the morning was inclusive of the room rate, and very good, me and my partner both had a f ry up and a continental breakfast. All in all it was a great stay and I will be returning in the near future.

And they give you sweeties as you check in!

Delightful small hotel which retains that friendly personal feel in a great seafront location.

It was a pleasure staying at this hotel as the staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. Rooms were slightly on the small side but didn't mind too much as we were out most of the time. It is not far from the Pier which was nice as we could take a stroll down and preferred that to being slap bang in the middle of the pier as it could get rather noisy. This hotel was in an ideal location for us and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Breakfast was great as had the usual fry up as well as many other cereals, yoghurts, etc. We would highly recommended this hotel as it was in a good location. It was also very clean, tidy and the staff were extremely friendly.

We Stayed at The ' Lanes Hotel' Last Saturday . Its location is great being on the seafront and close to the centre shopping area.
We were lucky to get a space in the car park which was free and becuse parking is an issue in Brighton we left our car there and got a taxi into the centre of town which cost £4.
It was lovley and warm everywhere in the hotel which was good considering the freezing weather outside,
There is a small well stocked bar which had pleasant backround music playing quietly,
Our room was a side sea view on the third floor which didnt matter as they have a lift - in other hotels in Brighton that I have stayed in I have had to clim loads of stairs which I found tiring .
The room was very clean ,spacious and comfotable with teasmaking and a flat screen TV .
We had a beautifully tiled bathroom with a very effective powerfull shower and Bath ,
The bed was good and we slepted like logs !
Breakfast is served in a dining room which has antique walnut panels and waitresses in black and white uniforms which I havent seen in years !

The Breakfast was very good ,All the staff were friendly and helpful and the bill was £80 for the night .
This hotel has got a very pleasant feel about it and excellent value for Money ,
I think next Time I would go for one of the front rooms which have balconies,We will certainly be returning .

The Lanes Hotel is a mixture of positives and negatives. The location is fantastic, near the pier and a short walk to the beach, it is reasonably priced for the location and the staff are both friendly and helpful. Street parking nearby is £9 per day. Our room was on the small side, but not tiny. However the decor was tired and dated with some unpleasant looking mould in the bathroom, the ceiling light fitting which was dangling by bare wires did not encourage confidence. Te breakfast is OK, but not great, we were advised to come a bit early for breakfast as: "it gets busy and you may have to wait otherwise as everything is cooked to order". There is no way my breakfast was cooked to order, it had clearly been lying in an oven drying out, whilst being kept warm for a fair while. Whilst I appreciate that a busy hotel may well bulk cook things then plate them as required, don't say that things will be cooked to order, when they are clearly not. Overall if you want a cheap place near the sea-front without much luxury, but is clean then this is the place you want, if you're looking to treat someone with a weekend away then it isn't.

Great seafront location with view of Brighton Pier. We stayed in a room with a seaview and balcony to celebrate a special occasion. Staff were polite and friendly and the reception is 24 hrs (good for those planning a late night). The accommodation was clean although rather dated, however this is a Victorian hotel so anything too trendy would have been out of place. Having said that it could have done with some attention to detail on a couple of minor repairs. This is its only fault as the breakfast and service were very good. There is also a bar and lovely lounge area.
We had a great time in Brighton and enjoyed our stay at The Lanes as it was perfect for an anniversary. I would thoroughly recoommend the hotel.

Reviewed 14 September 2009

The location of this hotel is superb and I had booked a sea-view room which was extremely pleasant but unfortunately the noise from the road was quite intrusive at night so I would ask for a side view room next time. I agree with some of the other reviewers that the decor and furniture is on the dated side. There were problems with windows not opening and closing properly which was a little frustrating, and silly little things like the loo handle kept hitting the top of the cistern which didn't fit properly, no proper shelf in the bathroom, a very low dressing table which looked like someone had sawn the legs off and shabby doors. Having said that, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was excellent and it was very good value. Parking was fine with spaces along the road for £9 a whole day and free between 6pm and 9 am. A very good bus service goes from opposite the hotel into the centre although it is within walking distance anyway, but after hitting the shops it was nice to take a bus ride back! This Nice little hotel has the potential to be a GREAT little hotel with some TLC, time and money spent on it.
