“Oh We Do Love To Be Beside The Seaside”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

We have just had three nights at this wonderful Hotel, staying in Room 4, at the front of the Hotel (with a balcony), on the first floor. Wow....what a view! The moment we arrived, John met us at the front of the Hotel. My husband had recently had knee replacement surgery and John ensured that we had a parking spot (free parking.....very unusual for Brighton), right outside the front door. He was also on hand for any luggage carrying. what a super friendly guy, who couldn't do enough for us. The location was ideal for both beach and shops and, once down on the sea front, there is a lovely level walk which meant my husband, albeit slowly, could stroll along the pier (lots of benches for resting up) or the promenade, taking in all the sights and sounds of this wonderfully lively resort. After tiring ourselves out with all the walking, the bed was immensely comfy and the ear plugs, provided, blocked out the traffic noise (it is a bustling seaside town, which we were aware of before we booked a sea front room, so traffic noise is to be expected but certainly didn't spoil our enjoyment). Breakfast was fabulous and our lovely waitress appeared very quickly, after we had polished off some wonderful fresh fruit salad (the buffet choice is huge) and took our order with a smile! Again, the choice of cooked breakfast (all cooked to order and not sitting on a hot plate, in the dining room), was incredible. Arriving hot and cooked to perfection. My husband loves fried bread, with his egg and, even though they had never provided this before, they went the 'extra mile' and his breakfast arrived, from the kitchen, complete with the nicest fried bread he had ever tasted.....he was blown away by this service. We shouldn't have been surprised as all members of staff at Room With A View are an absolute asset to the Hotel. This is how all hotels should be managed. Well done Stephen, your staff are a credit to you! We will definitely be back would like to book the room right at the top of the Hotel, next time, once my husband's knees are functioning properly!

We stayed here in the Cosy King Room (7) just a couple of nights ago... location is excellent, the decor of this boutique hotel is lovely, very contemporary with the charm of the original features. Parking is also included from check in to 11am on day of leaving which is an added bonus as this could really bump up the price of your stay. This hotel is spotlessly clean, even though this may have been refurbished recently and you might just expect that, everything was just right. From check in we were given a map and some details of what's about which we found really helpful as we hadn't stayed in Brighton before. We were on pretty high up with a beautiful view over the beach and pier, this hotel is on a road that is in use a lot but note that before you book or stay, it seems that anyone that has stayed here has taken that into account and just enjoyed the accommodation and service. Breakfast was very good, presented extremely well and the politeness & friendliness of the staff compliments the stay. I searched and searched for the perfect stay in Brighton as it was our Wedding Anniversary and I would so recommend A Room with a View, will stay here again for sure, thank you :)

The location of this place is great, close to everything. It can be noisy at night as clubs are nearby and patrons can exit the clubs and not get further than outside your window, as happened to me both nights. Ear plugs are provided and I could have shut the windows and turned on the fan but I like a sea breeze and the reality of Brighton! So don't let that put you off. The cooked breakfast was the best I've ever had. The attention to detail in all the decor is lovely. I'd definitely come back.

Room Tip: Higher up would be further from street noise

We stayed here for our anniversary and it was perfect. Amazing rooms, beautiful view and very friendly staff who were always happy to help and smiling. The bed was so comfortable we didn't want to get up for breakfast, which was also wonderful. Will definitely return :)

Having stayed at a number of different hotels along the Kings Road this B&B was recommended to me. Great location, spotlessly clean rooms, fantastic view, motivated and helpful staff and a good breakfast. I won't bother with the Kings Road hotels in future.

Room:

We stayed in the ground floor standard double, it was very clean and comfortable with a lovely bathroom, and nice view of the pier.

Location:

Really good location, about 5-10 mins walk to the city centre and most of the main things to see in Brighton, e.g. the Pier, the Palace, museums and shops.

Breakfast:

Amazing quality and lots of hot and cold options available.

Staff:

Friendly, polite and very helpful

Value:

Excellent value for money, I would highly recommend this hotel!

Overall: a friendly, quiet and small hotel with a cosy feel. Best suited for couples.

We booked a hotel room at the next door hotel "Drakes". When we arrived we where told that there had been a double booking, and we had to stay at a B&B called "A room with a view" next door. A bit dissapointed, we accepted the situation and found our way. We where greeted by a nice man that took us up to our room. The room was very nice (even better than a normal hotel room). The breakfast was great and the location was within perfect range of the city center.
