“Return visit - what an improvement”
Reviewed 16 August 2011

I have stayed here on many occasions and whilst it was never bad enough not to return it was never an exceptional stay. This time the investment they have made really impressed me. The public areas and bedrooms have been refurbished and even the smallest rooms (and their single rooms are small) now have every luxury. The breakfast is slick and service very quick. I will certainly keep returning.

Room Tip: Seafront rooms also have the noisy road

Rooms and communal areas were clean and tidy. Nice bar. Good location. Breakfast was nice, however, the breakfast area isn't large enough to accommodate the guests, we had to stand outside the breakfast room for about 10 minutes before we could be seated. We booked in advance, good value for money.

Had wonderful time at the Brighton hotel. Staff were really helpful and polite. Best night's sleep i've had in a while. The breakfast they served was very nice, £5 for english breakfast.
The hotel was clean with few parking spaces at the front. Best thing about the hotel was it's location. few minutes walk to the city centre. would highly recommend this hotel

I just come back from a 1 night stay in the Best Western in Brighton. I went over to meet up with friends in the UK and we thought we'd try Brighton. The hotel was right on the sea front with great views. It was a lovely walk down to the pier which takes about ten mins. The main shopping street and bars are also about a 5 mins walk away which was great. The hotel was lovely too. Very clean. It's a basic hotel but not too basic. Bar area is small but nice and there's a good sized breakfast room too. I was definitely stay here if I go back to Brighton.

The Brighton Hotel The Grade II listed Brighton Hotel is one of the most charming hotels in Brighton where you are guaranteed a warm and personal welcome.

We are just a short walk to Brighton's main shopping areas, the famous Lanes with its cobbled passage ways and its myriad of little shops and boutiques, many of which are unique to Brighton. The Brighton Conference Centre is a five minute stroll away and we are literally a stone's throw from the beach. The Brighton Hotel is a privately owned independent hotel that is large enough to have all the faculties you would expect but small enough to make you feel important to us and special. The hotels elegant lounge, bar and restaurant have enviable sea views, a great place to relax and watch the world go by. The hotel has 55 well-appointed rooms, and while the hotel is right on the famous Brighton seafront it is just far enough out of the main centre's noisy bars and clubs to be significantly quieter than many other seafront Brighton hotels. High speed wireless internet access is available free of charge in all our rooms and public areas. As a 3 Star accredited hotel we offer Dinner in The Salisbury Restaurant available 7 days a week from 6.30pm till 9.30pm and our Lite Bite Bar Menu is available 7 days a week 24hrs a day.

Room Service: Room Service is now available for Breakfast continental & Full English and we also offer a breakfast to go from 4am. We have limited parking in front of the hotel based on a first come, first serve policy. The guests can only book these spaces on arrival at reception. These spaces are sold for £18 per night. Therefore, if we run out of spaces, our guests can park in Regency Square Car Park which is just 3 minutes walking distance from us. Day rate for conference delegates is £9.00 And must be vacated by 17:00. Please note that Vans are not allowed to park in our car park due to size restrictions. Luxury Car Service For a little taste of luxury we can organise a private hire executive car to bring you to the hotel from your port of entry.
