We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The hotel was close to all desirable areas of the town and a 2 minute walk from the train station. Friendly and approachable staff, also a great and healthy variety of food at breakfast,
A very traditional English seaside hotel. Warm and friendly welcome with full Concierge facilities. The room was comfortable with an excellent sea view. The decor was a little tired but still well appointed. Breakfast was buffet style with table service for tea/coffee. Full english was included and there were additional dishes from the menu. The service was good and the food excellent. We did not dine in the evening. Not the cheapest but the extra services made it good value.
Stayed two nights, had a cheaper rate for a room on the top floor which we think were the old servants' quarters! It is a trek as there is no lift, but we knew that before we booked and it was no trouble for us. It's a perfect place to stay in Brighton as it's really close to the front (our room had a direct view of the sea and the old pier), really close to all that's good about Brighton! It's a lovely atmosphere in a beautiful old building, with lovely hosts and a cracking breakfast!
As it's an old building, there are imperfections that come with a hotel of it's age, most notably the wonky floors, but that adds to the charm of the hotel in my opinion. All rooms apart from the breakfast room and lounge are upstairs, so I would recommend anyone to consider this before they book.
The breakfast is a buffet breakfast with all sorts on offer, with vegetarian sausages available if you ask, or maybe even mention it before you go.
There is no parking, which is standard around Brighton, but we booked a space with a chap round the back of the hotel, recommended by the hotel owner, and paid half the price of anything else I had seen elsewhere.
My daughter and I stayed overnight with our two dogs and were delighted with both the room and the garden provided for exercising our pets. Lovely building with attractive flowerbeds in beautiful rural setting.
