I stay in hotels regularly on business so tend to pick them for leisure trips over B&B's as I like the anonymity of hotels and I know what to expect. As Brighton claims to have re-invented the B&B and offers boutique hotels aplenty I decided to avoid the chains, book outside my comfort zone and stay in a boutique B&B!
I booked the Pelirocco as it was rated 6th for B and B's in Brighton and looked like a bit of fun.
To be truthful I was disappointed. The rooms are themed but the room we were in was done cheaply rather than being done well. Pleasant enough view over the square but a hell of a draught from the windows.
Reaching the rooms is a bit of a rabbit warren and there are heavy fire doors which bang at night, with the noise from outside as well your sleep is likely to be interrupted (but there wasn't any noise from the on the Saturday we stayed there)
At £120 a night I didn't feel that we got value but as this is Brighton and the prices are comparable i have marked this category as average (anywhere else and i would have marked this poor)
A lot of reviews on here commend the breakfast and they're right, It really is good.
The staff were pleasant enough and the location is excellent for shops, restaurants and the sea front. There was no one thing that really put me off, it just wasn't for us,
