My husband and I stayed here to make a long weekend out of going to a concert, we booked an executive room with a marina view, very large room with settee, and couple of chairs, decent kingsize bed and nice brightly lit and clean bathroom. There was only a hanging space, no wardrobes and clothes hung above where the kettle sits, which seemed like a good way to get your suit steamed but not really a good idea! Shared outside area for all marina facing rooms on the ground floor with a table and couple of chairs, so would be nice in decent weather.
Bar area very large with nice views over the marina, staff in here were very friendly. We ate in the restaurant on our first night, this was probably not as speedy as it should have been as they were not that busy when we arrived. Seemed to take about 30 minutes to take the order and the time between courses seemed a little too long, although better than having your starter taken away at the same time your main course is presented. The food itself was very nice, well presented and just the right amount. Breakfast the next morning was OK, although the scrambled egg was out of a packet. Breakfast over the weekend runs until 10.30am, be aware that a lot of people like a later breakfast, we went into breakfast around 10am and had to wait for a table, however no longer than about 15 minutes. Restaurant staff quite friendly but if anything sometimes seemed to be a little distracted and not as attentive as some other restaurants. Room service continental breakfast the second morning was OK, however the time selected of between 9.30am and 10am was missed or ignored, as the knock on the door with breakfast came at 8.35am.
Parking is in the multi story a short walk away which is free for guests of the hotel, park on level 6 and it is just a short walk over a bridge and one floor up in the lift to reception. They do offer assistance with luggage if required, although there is a drop off point in front of the hotel.
Nice stop over for a specific reason and not as expensive as other hotels "in town" and free parking I think is quite rare for a Brighton hotel. The cab ride to town was around £7.00, another hotel was going to charge £30 a night to park, so this hotel seemed like a good alternative.
