The hotel generally is very good with attentive, helpful staff, excellent communal areas and great breakfasts. However beware of the room size and the parking facilities. We booked a double with balcony overlooking the marina and sea. There was only just room for the double bed, a small dressing table, a two drawer chest and a small chair. There was no wardrobe and nowhere near enough space to store clothes for two people staying for more than one night. We had a large quantity of suits, dresses, jackets, trousers and skirts along with loads of other clothes and shoes as we were in Brighton for a 3 day/3 night Mod weekend where multiple changes of stylish clothing is necessary. There was nowhere for all of our clothes to go and nowhere to keep the suitcases full of the clothes we could not unpack.
Parking was also a serious issue for us. Secure, private parking was essential. We brought a very valuable 1961 classic Lambretta motor scooter adorned with rare Mod accessories in the back of a van. We chose this hotel be cause it advertised plenty of on-site parking. It was not on-site. It was in a public, multi storey car park that the van could not go into. Consequently we had nowhere secure to leave our van and classic scooter......the main reason for picking the Seattle over all other Brighton hotels.
If we had been staying for 1 or 2 nights only, if we were not on a Mod holiday with loads of clothes, if we had traveled in a car rather than a van loaded with a valuable motor scooter, then the hotel would have been excellent. So for most guests, with the exception of the room size, this is a great place to stay. Don't, however, stay here if you have lots of luggage, are intending to stay for any length of time or have a large vehicle you need to park securely! .
