This was a last minute decision, literally that afternoon we thought lets have a night in a hotel in Brighton. looked at the Neo's website which looked great. So firstly we phoned the hotel to see if they could do us a last minute deal and was told they had only two rooms left and they could not budge on their rate.
I had looked on Laterooms.com and found i could get the rooms for half price and the receptionist said well book through them then - so i did.
we were told on the phone we were to be allocated room 6 for which myself and my wife liked from the details and photos on the website.
We arrived and from first glance all appeared good, the receptionist was nice polite and couldn't do more for us then she said that the hotel was practically empty - only two other rooms occupied and she showed us room 6. - why she said on the phone that they were full was bemusing!
Room 6 is nothing like what was described on their website - Different appearance, Tiny with a ensuite shoehorned into an existing bedroom which meant that there was about a foot all around the bed for space. The ensuite had no bath as described, though it was a decent shower room.
Not one of the doors to the room could be shut properly. i work in the construction industry and the hanging of the doors was laughable. The central heating in the room did not work at all but they gave us an electric heater which was fine and heated the room great. Though the bathroom was freezing in the morning!
Breakfast was really good with ample choice and generous servings.
Overall, don't think we would go again and would recommend to others that don't pay the full price - not worth it and have a hunt on the internet.
PS no parking to hotel - NCP 5 minute walkaway which was fine but would worry if it was chucking it down!
