“Excellent value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2011

This was my first stay in a Premier Inn but it will definitely not be my last. The room was spacious and clean(the bathroom was absolutely spotless). The bed was very comfortable and I had a very good nights sleep before eating an excellent breakfast. I would have preferred the room to be a little warmer, I tried to change the temperature but the control didn't seem to be working. This wasn't enough of a problem to warrant a complaint. Its worth noting that our Sat Nav took us to the wrong NCP car park so we didn't get any discount. All in all a really good hotel and I will be using Premier Inn again.l

Called this review top location, as Premier Inn is at heart of Brighton situated close to cultural quarter and 'The Laines', a maze of lanes with quaint and quality shops, boutiques, jewellary and pubs, and restaurants. Hotel is 5mins walk from sea and station closeby. Choccywoccydoodah is a newly famous nearby chocolate shop which is also worth a visit.
Others have mentioned the NCP difficulty-having made same mistake myself, this is how you get to the discounted NCP. PASS the NCP on North Street(not as directed by my TOMTOM), go straight on for 200 yards. Turn right into Gardiner Street-it is much like a pedestrian only street-you can drive down it though-proceed until you come to end and turn right onto Church Street. NCP 50 yards on left. On leaving go through back of car park, and you will come to back of Premier Inn.
Entrance is next to Subway, and yes it does smell of food all the time. This only seems to be noticeable in main circulation corridors.
Room was as usual, Reception excellant and helpful, Breakfast ordinary-go to a local Cafe-there are many nearby. Bar was well equipped, cheaper than most surrounding pubs with quiz machine and pool table.
Will revisit with no hesitation in the future.

Thank you for your review, and as soon as Church street is re-opened after the road works then Sat Nav systems will take you directly to the correct NCP car park using the post code BN1 1US, and at reception we will validate the car park ticket again for 25% off all parking fees. We hope you visit again soon!

Prior to booking already the first contact (by phone) was ever so friendly and helpful, very speedy and with high quality with respect to fast follow up (which we cannot say of other quality hotels in this city, of which some took 4 (!) days to get back to us by email).
So we were immediately convinced and made a booking for 4 nights (Febr 18-22). And this was no disappointment at all! Friendly, fine service, cleanliness, we felt very welcome in this family hotel, which I would for sure also book if it was for business purposes...
A not very well working central heating system, was the only disappointment but after having had the opportunity of switching to another room, we decided to stay where we were (610) and opted for possibility 2: a portable heater that helped out fine.
Friendly staff at all times and on each location whether thiswas reception/front desk, restaurant, housekeeping, and a spacious room we we are not likely to forget (this in comparison to i.e. the prestigious Cumberland Hotel in Londen where we we in August 2010), cleanliness almost everywhere. We sure felt fine in the centre of Brighton!!! We visited Brighton because our daughter has plans for studying in Chichester later this year, which is a little less than an hour by train from Brighton. So we don't have to worry "which hotel" could be ok for Mum and Dad when we want to visit her. It's obvious: Premier Inn Brighton City Centre...no doubt about it!

Trepadation was the only word to descibe how I felt about the Premier Inn chain.... call me a hotel snob but it wasn't up on my list of must go places... all I can say is it far exceeded expectation... myself and 7 & 8 year old girls spent 3 nights here, rooms large, comfortable and clean, beds had proper mattresses, not put-you-up sofas. breakfasts were well organised, well cooked and fantastic value. where else can you feed a family of 3 for £7.99!!! The location of the Brighton hotel is unbeatable, right between the north and south laines and the pavillion shopping area, but yet it was very quiet... we slept like logs. Banish your fears for a great value break.. spend what you've saved on things to do, the Sealife centre, the pavillion were brilliant!
Just watch the wifi in the hotel room if you need it, it's run by spectrum and it's not free.

Always stay at Premier Inns with work, and also my first choice for chain hotel for leisure stays too. This is the best I've been to - so central for both the town centre and the seafront, great for evening drinks and food as it's so close to everywhere.

Friendly staff, comfortable room and an excellent cooked breakfast.

Perfect.

We only stayed one night at the hotel but were very impressed. The price was amazing (£29 excluding breakfast). If you drive then parking adds to the cost but this is the case everywhere in Brighton and the Premier Inn will validate your parking for the NCP (which is right behind the hotel) to give you a 25% discount (full cost is £20 for 24 hours weekdays and £25 weekends, so we paid £18.75 for the Sunday through to Monday).

The service at reception was friendly and efficient - far better than I have experienced in a number of other, more expensive, hotels. Our room was clean and comfortable - nice sized double bed and decent bedding, the bathroom was also clean and functional with a shower over the bath - and a pretty good shower too with a decent amount of pressure (I've had much worse experiences with showers in far more expesive places!). Recommend taking your own loo roll though as the toilet paper was very cheap and nasty! Shower gel and soap supplied but bring your own shampoo and conditioner.

The hotel is VERY central, right next to the lanes and a short (and I do mean short) walk to the seafront and pier. As it was a sunday night we stayed at the hotel it was pretty quiet with the exception of some lorries etc. unloading on Monday morning, but I can imagine there might be a bit of noise on a Friday/Saturday night - however, that is the price you pay in any hotel that is in such a central location.

We didn't have the hotel breakfast but took full advantage of the late (midday) checkout time that is standard with the Premier Inn and had a breakfast of croissants and orange juice bought from the Co-op 2 doors down in our room!

Obviously if you are expecting 5* luxury you will be disappointed, but if you are looking for a cheap, clean and comfortable room, friendly service and an excellent location, you can't do better. We would definately stay here again

PS - Try out Warung Tujuh Indonesian restaurant for a gorgeous fresh and tasty meal, and Bankers award winning fish and chips (which is a little way out of the centre but well worth the trip!)
