“Pleasant stay”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

Stayed one night in a comfortable twin room. The hotel adequately met all our needs. Staff were pleasant. Unable to comment on the restaurant as we did not eat there. A quiet alternative to Brighton itself.

We stayed as husband did the London to Brighton bike ride. The room was a good size with a double and single bed. The bathroom was clean and the shower was great. We had food in the hotel and it was nice. The hotel is a 30min walk to the pier and the road was very noisy if the window was left open but a nice place to stay.

We asked for a sea view and were given a family room although we were a couple. The room was so spacious, clean and the view was great to wake up to. The staff were really friendly and hospitable. The hotel is about half an hour walk from Brighton Pier, which suited us, as it was close enough to walk but far enough away from the noise of Brighton, although should you wish not to walk the bus stop is just outside the hotel. We will certainly stay at this hotel again

Just come back from a 2 night stay at this hotel, we had a family room which had lovely sea views and was spacious, clean and had the biggest bath ever.
We never ate in the hotel, but looking at menu it did look a bit expensive, both for the restaurant and room service, but it is what you expect from most hotels.
We have been to Brighton a few times and love it. We have stayed at bigger hotels, like the Devere and Thistle, but there is something nice and friendly about this hotel. All the staff we encountered were professional and courteous.
There is a free car park, which is rare in Brighton. The walk along the seafront towards Brighton is so relaxing and a great way of chilling out.
The only downside with the hotel is the Wi-Fi, not very good I should imagine, if you were there on business and needed to do your work.
But I would certainly stay at this hotel again and enjoy it.

This hotel is well situated on the seafront at Hove. It was good to have parking on site. It was a bit out of Brighton but very convenient for the local buses which were very frequent and ran late into the evening. Our room was at the back, no complaints with the room. The breakfast was poor, toast brought with the tea/coffee and poor selection for continental breakfast. The cooked breakfast had been cooked well in advance, really not worth eating.

I stayed in this hotel for 2 weeks while flat hunting in the area, and loved the room they gave me. I had room number 42 which was a large, airy room with a truly exceptional sea view, as you can see from the photo.

The room was cleaned to a high standard every day, and the cleaners were chatty, friendly and really thorough. The bed was comfy too, so all is great there. Room service was expensive but fantastic food, their homemade burger was one of the best I've ever had.

The niggles, then:

The shower is a little disappointing in that it trickles rather than flows, so it takes a while to get your bits wet!

The complimentary Wi-Fi is painfully slow and intermittent, it's much stronger nearer the room door, but drops to "barely detectable" on the bed.

All the TVs are on the walls and you can sometimes hear the TV through the wall from the next room. It's a muffled hum rather than a boom, though and shouldn't really disturb you unless you're a very light sleeper.

All the above niggles are really nit-picky, and wouldn't put me off staying again. I'd probably even ask for the same room, simply to guarantee that beautiful view.

The breakfast is more than adequate, too. It's a small selection of continental (cereal, fruit, yoghurt, croissants, cheese) and a very decent full English, or kippers. I couldn't face a full English sometimes so just asked for a bacon or sausage sandwich and they were more than happy to accommodate.


On the whole, then. Well worth a stay and would stay again. To guarantee a phenomenal view, as for a sea view room on the 4th floor. You won't regret it.
