“Bit noisy but lovely staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2012 via mobile

I stayed here 22/12/12 I was firstly appointed room 319 which on a Saturday night in Brighton is probably not the best idea as it was set right above the pitcher & piano bar - very noisy all night.
However as soon as I rang reception I was not only moved but upgraded too room 409 a HUGE king size with sofa/desk/sea view. Also it was a lovely quiet part of the hotel. So I am very grateful to the receptionist for that as it allowed a good nights sleep.

Good Points:
Comfy beds, clean & hygienic, helpful polite staff, nice breakfast, nice atmosphere, huge rooms, good location (in the lanes)
Bad Points:
Noisy, drinks are pricey, hard to navigate round hotel, extortionate car parking prices even for hotel residents (£20 per 24hours) , bathrooms could do with a bit of retouching. Book spa treatments in advance to avoid disappointment.

The hotel itself is not too bad, the rooms are reasonably furnished and clean. The staff are excellent and cannot do enough to help. The location is good for both the sea front and the lanes and shopping areas. However there are some bad points. There are lifts however once out of them you still need to negotiate many steps (as you do to get in the hotel). However its the noise at the rear of the hotel. Avoid these rooms at all costs. The hotel backs onto a night club and a 'gentlemans' club. Fights, shouting and police most nights.

Would I stay here again? I possibly would but I would make sure I was not in one of the rooms at the back of the hotel.

Room Tip: Not one at the rear of the hotel, avoid at all costs if you want to sleep.

I spent a couple of nights here during a business trip last November. What can I say... the only thing I liked about it was the location. The staff was friendly, for the most part. The room was very spartan, as was the bathroom, and they were both rather old and tired looking. The bathroom in particular was badly in need of a facelift. My room overlooked a club or bar or something, and the noise was intolerable! Don't expect to get a good night's sleep (perhaps the rooms with a sea view are quieter). Breakfast was nothing special, but luckily there are plenty of tea rooms and coffee shops in the immediate vicinity of the hotel.

My permanence here wasn't completely terrible, but I won't book here again the next time I come to Brighton.

Room Tip: I suggest you look elsewhere if you want to get restful sleep during your stay.

After staying in various wacky/not so wacky B&Bs in Brighton and having stayed here at Queens on business I returned with my boyfriend for a birthday weekend treat and Christmas shopping trip.

Our room was very large (king size sea view room) and was a bit chilly but warm enough with the radiator turned up and snuggled under the spare blanket while watching TV. Plenty of wardrobe space (3 in total) but only a few hangers in each so take your own if you're taking more than a few items of clothing. As previous reviews, bathroom small in comparison to the room and the shower wan't very powerful. The curtains were very good quality and ensured a nice dark bedroom in the mornings! I personally think the hotel is well maintained for its age but as always, they could make some improvements. The duvets could do with being bigger on the king size beds for starters!

We expected noise due to the location but were pleasantly surprised with just a bit of road noise and a few late night revellers passing but generally OK depending on your level of sleep - my partner wore earplugs the second night whereas I was able to sleep through.

The location for the beach and shopping is absolutely fantastic, a few minutes' walk from the pier and to the start of the shops. Great shopping opportunities for quirky, arty and unique presents or jewellery.

Breakfast was perfectly acceptable with fruit juice, fruit (although not best quality), cereals (in need of a dust-off), toast facilities (average sliced bread), croissants, jams and a hot buffet consisting of good quality sausages, bacon, scrambled eggs, beans, canned tomatoes and fried bread. Black filter coffee and tea was served rather abruptly in a mug with DIY jug of milk on the table, could be better.

Cocktails in the hotel bar area were enjoyable (2 for £7 5pm-9pm) which was nice for pre-dinner drinks. We didn't try the food at the hotel but the menu was varied and what we did see looked well-presented. Could do with some bar snacks or nibbles (olives, nuts etc.) which would be a nice touch.

We parked in the cheaper Regency Square car park (£12.50 per 24 hours) which is no distance at all to walk back to the hotel along the sea front. It's well-lit and had plenty of spaces.

Check-out is 11am but the hotel have a luggage hold facility so you can leave your bags on the last day until ready to depart which was very handy.

All in all, a reasonably priced and comfortable stay but I would consider other sea front hotels next time.

Without a doubt it is good value for money, and it is clean.
But it is tired, the service is barely adequate, the breakfast is poor. It is shabby and tired. My biggest complaint is that the beds are small......and not the best quality. That is a shame because there is no need for that. There rooms are more tan big enough. There is no parking at the hotel, but there is a public car park very close by....a little under £25 per 24 hours so this will be in addition to the cost of the room.

The best part about this hotel...it is very central to all of the main attractions in Brighton.
