“Friendly, professional staff, nice room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

Staff were all friendly and professional, the room was nicely decorated with good sea views. The hotel is a pleasant walk from Brighton which is a plus. Bed was comfortable and bathroom and room amenities good.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms look out over the road so are a little noisy, but not so much that it would be distur...

Just a shambles of a hotel. Very run down. It seems you can park anywhere in the car park. I was block in and had to wait 30 hour before abusive idiot moved his white van. Hotel need to control the car parking as I wasn't the only one block. I won't be going back.

Friendly and very welcoming staff . Lovely clean, bright and fresh room. We liked the little touches such as the cushions and bed runners. Hotel room view was amazing. Bathroom was modern and clean. The receptionists and housekeeping staff were very helpful and we're very efficient when we requested iron facilities and a fan. Breakfast was delicious with a wide choice. Waiters/ waitress were very friendly towards our children and provided an efficient service. Would definitely stay again. Three negatives; poor car parking Facilities and window in room swung out fully when opened (unsafe for young children and vulnerable adults ) and no air conditioning!!

We have previously stayed at this hotel in June and enjoyed it so much we rebooked. We spent a two nights stay at this hotel at the end of July.

On arrival, there was a slight mix up of what room we were supposed to be in, but this was quickly sorted out by one of the gentleman cleaners.

The hotel, although a little tired and dated is clean and the family rooms are lovely and spacious. The beds are nice and comfortable,and there is a lovely big bath. There are also tea and coffee facilities in the room which are filled up daily.

From the hotel we walked to Brighton Pier and it took about 30 to 40 minutes to walk or you can catch a bus from the bus stop directly outside the hotel if you prefer. There is also a indoor swimming/ fitness centre just across the road from the hotel called King Alfreds Leisure Centre, which was useful when the weather turnt a bit rainy. It only costs £3.00 per child and although it is not enormous there is a slide and a water shower for the kids.There is also a big tesco not far from the hotel, which is useful for getting food/drink supplies for the room.

The hotel offers both a restaurant or room service, we took advantage of the room service one night and ordered some chips, which we did not enjoy. The chips were more like fries and were soggy and undercooked, which was disappointing.

We stayed at this hotel before we were due to fly from gatwick airport for our holiday, for an extra couple of days away, and as the hotel is only a half and hour drive from the airport it was ideal.

Overall, despite a few issues we would return to this hotel again, it is reasonably priced compared to some of the hotels along in Brighton and offers a free car park, which in Brighton is rare. And considering we enjoy the walk into BrIghton the location of the hotel is'nt a problem.

Just home from a one night stay. Brilliant value for money. Room was lovely, clean, bright and modern. We were given sea-view even though we didn't pay for it. Breakfast was second to none. Toast and full English with waiter service and great selection on the Buffett. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Would certainly go back.

Arrived and parked in the smallest, tightest car park known to man. Big open spaces at the front but told that was staff parking.
The room was nice and clean. All modern with a fantastic sea view.
Sadly the bed was shocking! Resembled a water bed and if i moved, wifey disappeared of the bed and she returned the favour. 2 nights of horrid no sleep.
Then you have to contend with the paper thin walls where every noise, cough and splutter is heard. Including the guy upstairs peeing at 3:30 am. Next door were smokey joe's so had to vacate the premises every 30 minutes by banging doors and escaping out of the fire escape doors. Then embarking on a full blown argument at 1am!
You then have the noise of the main road. Which was never quiet throughout the night. Cars busses taxis we heard them all.
To finish on a positive! The breakfast was awesome if a little snug in the dining hall.

Room Tip: Dont choose a sea view but if you have noisy neighbours you will be scuppered in attempting a good n...
