Impressed to book online and receive an e mail from the hotel directly quoting our booking and confirming everything. Very reassuring.
We have stayed in a number if premium hotels and this isn't quite it - though it tries to be......
We ate in the first night......over priced, average food.
The prawn cocktail promised much and didn't deliver. I didn't eat it myself but my friend assured me it was frozen prawns and that the word 'shrimp' would be a better name for what she ate. Her main course also disappointed her. Purple potato????? Why????? Ugly and tasteless! I shared a chateaubriand speak with my husband. We have had MUCH better - including ones I have cooked at home! We were sad to be disappointed. The 'piece de resistance' though was when the waiter came to clear the table. He cleared everyone at the table and then came to clear my plate. I WAS STILL EATING AND HAD BEEN EATING THROUGHOUT HIS CLEARING. I HAD TO STOP HIM TAKING AWAY MY PLATE AND TELL HIM HOW RUDE I THOUGHT IT WAS TO CLEAR WHILE SOMEONE WAS STILL EATING AT THE TABLE!!!!!!!!
Breakfast was ok. The granola is GORGEOUS but service very slow. We had to ask 4 times to order and in the meantime were brought toast, then tea and then two full English breakfasts - none of which we had ordered.
The second night we aye elsewhere.
Breakfast the second day was much quicker and more accurate.
Room was nice. Terrace good.
We would try it again if it were cheaper..............

For the best tankered of local ale, Pub du Vin is one of Brighton city center's treasures with its classic pub dining.
