Reviewed 22 July 2013

We selected this hotel for a weekend away because it had free parking, as in Brighton this is a plus; we are so pleased that we selected the hotel as the location is outstanding. We did not have a marina view which although this is a shame we did not spend enough time in the hotel room to care. The rooms are basic but clean and bright, not easy to hang clothes as in our room there was just a metal bar next to the tv but this was OK for 2 nights. Sitting in the bar, either outside looking over the marina or inside sitting on one of the many retro styled sofas, is very relaxing as are the cocktails (very nice). The setting for breakfast is also lovely and once again you can sit on a balcony overlooking the marina and soaking up the morning atmosphere with a very nice breakfast. The only negative point is that the service at breakfast is very poor and tea/coffee and toast took over 20 minutes on both mornings; the buffet was nice but would be better with a cuppa, so hopefully it was just a weekend glitch. ignoring the breakfast, we will definitely return.

This is a cool hotel with great views across the marina. On a hot July weekend Brighton can be an unbearably crowded place and taking the Volt railway back along the beach to the Seattle came as a relief.
Modern and artistic though the hotel is, the rooms are small and lacked AC and a fridge, both of which we could have done with as the temperature was into the 30s. But our room did lead to he terrace where we could cool down. We had to leave the door and window open at night which meant our sleep was disturbed by guests closeby who must have fallen asleep with their tv on. It was switched off about 4.30 in the morning.
So not a lot of room space, no wardrobe and a toilet so small that multi taskers like myself couldn't have read a kindle let alone a broadsheet while going through the ablutions.
Breakfast was ok though no egg alternatives to scrambled were offered and I had to wait for both beans and bacons. However, they compensated through sauce in big bottles, including Tabasco.
Great location, nice decor but small rooms. Beneath the hotel is Zizzi, Cafe Rouge, Nandos etc.

We stayed for 1 night with our 15 month old, parking was a bit confusing as it is in a separate multi storey and a bit of a walk especially with all the things you bring for a toddler!!

The reception staff were helpful and the room itself was nice and clean, the travel cot supplied had quite a few stains so I had to get the anti bacterial wipes out!

The view from the room was of the marina which was very nice and we had a shared balcony which was fine.

We had breakfast in the morning which was very disappointing, the cooked breakfast wasn't great and the highchair for our daughter was filthy!

Service from staff was good and style and look of hotel is nice but breakfast and cleanliness for children really let's it down.

This hotel is totally fantastic we stayed over my birthday 12july . When we arrived the room was ready 3hrs early it also had a birthday card from the team and fresh fruit .
The room over looking the marina is well worth the extra . The view in the morning when you wake up is truly amazing the
Breakfast was great fresh fruit ,pastries ,and then a cooked English just to set you up for the day .

I took my partner away for his birthday for 2 nights in this hotel. We had a Marina view double room. It was lovely, clean and comfortable. Free parking a hundred metres away in the multi storey. Added bonus was an ipad docking station we could listen to our music. We were very lucky with the weather and the setting was perfect. If you want to eat in the hotel book early we missed out. The breakfasts were plentiful and a fair amount of choice. We ate the first night in the Brasserie in the square, I will review separately. The next morning we caught a bus into Brighton, so quick and easy. £4.60 return. You have to try 'Bills' the food was brilliant, I will review. Second night we ate at Prezzo with friends, again I will review separately. My overall impression of the hotel was very good and the staff were very polite and friendly. I would definitely use this hotel again.

We stayed weekend of the 5th July for the Love Supreme Jazz Festival, hotel was great, our room was ready early for us to drop our stuff and head straight out. Did not realise how far out of town the hotel was, but didn't cause us any issues we just hopped on a bus. The rooms were clean and views of the Marina lovely. Only down side was on both days the breakfast service was slow, but on the final day we sat waiting 40 minutes just for someone to take our order, so we left without breakfast, I did feedback to the front desk but there was no offer of a refund - perhaps I should have pressed harder.

All in all lovely hotel, just breakfast service is terrible. If you do book, might be worth doing so without breakfast, there is a Weatherspoons a stones throw away where you can get breakfast quickly and at a reasonable price.

The hotel was easy to get to, car park is on way in to marina, go down to levels to 6 and use the walkway. Checking in was easy and our King sea view room easily took a Z-bed for our daughter. The huge bed then easily accommodated her when she decided she preferred ours. The bar was easy to relax into and the choice of food outlets surrounding the hotel was great. Breakfast was swift and even though busy they attended well to my families dietary complexities. After checkout we still had things to do in Brighton and so the staff informed us we could leave our car for free until we were done that evening. Just thinking about car park costs alone make sit a no-brainer that we'll be back
