We were made to feel very welcome on our arrival by Kerry one of the owners.As my husbands case had been lost in transit on our flight from Crete via Athens to Heathrow Airport he only had virtually what he was standing up in which was shorts and tshirt they were so kind in offering to launder anything and have it ready the next day. Their attitude and kindness was so lovely and much appreciated until we could go and purchase more clothes plus get directions of where to get them from shops etc..
The hotel is just of Brighton Beach and a short stroll from Brighton Pier. Also very close to lots of cafes or fish and chip shops which are a must when visiting Brighton.
Breakfast is served in a lovely dining room which also serves as the bar area in the evenings.
It was very good quality with table service and excellent coffee of which is a little hard to find in England.
The only negatives I would say were dont book a room at the back of the hotel as it backs onto
the bar of another hotel next door and this can be very noisy as we found at around 12 oclock. It did go on for some time so made it hard to drop off to sleep as there was music going as well although I dont know if this was from the same place or further along the street as it is amongst many other hotels and accommodation places.
The other is parking as there are only a few spaces which are normally taken. You are given a voucher to place on the dashboard which does enable you to park reasonably close by approx. 2 blocks in our case but the cost of this just for our overnight stay was 9 pounds 50. In dollars around $15 so not really cheap at all as most other establishments have parking available at no cost. So I think it is something that has to be taken into consideration especially if its for a long stay.
