Get there earlyf you need to park your car.

Pros: Location and restaurant.
Cons: Car parking (but this is a Brighton problem generally).
Location: Just a short walk up from the pier. Handy for the bars in town and the lanes.
Lovely hotel, very nice room (the one with the bathroom down some stairs). But no city view. We ate in the restaurant too and the meal was superb.

Excellent position on the best part of seafront

The staff were very helpful with parking requests etc.. Showing the room, explaining all I needed to know about the room and hotel! I did expect a better paint job around especially in the stairwell. Room was a bit small for the price but location is top, so I would have to compare tariff with other hotel in the same place. Overall a very pleasant experience, and top mark for the breakfast room, clean, very pleasant staff, fresh orange juice is really nice and the full English was of a great quality! Might come back, thanks!

Excellent small hotel, 10 minutes walk to the town

Lovely hotel, although the rear rooms have an unattractive view. The bath was in the bedroom, although very quaint and afforded every facility. Staff were excellent and it is good value for money.

Room 301, fantastic seafront views, comfortable room, friendly staff, lovely breakfast. Perfect in every respect. If I'm in Brighton again I'll be staying at the Drake!

Brilliant service, most comfortable bed in the world and a great view of the pier and beachfront. Great for a special occasion.

Service very good. Room well designed but a little small. Great chef on restaurant but dining room a little cold. Bar was open 24hrs - a bonus.

Nicest hotel I have stayed in for a long time. 20 rooms - felt like a five star hotel with a B&B cosiness. Staff were fantastic. Could not be more helpful. Felt like home but with room service!

Nice hotel as a base for shopping & eating out!

Posted 16-Nov-2013
We had an over all lovely stay at drakes hotel! Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and the bar is a very pleasant place to sit and relax with a glass of wine! We stayed in room 404 apparently an free upgrade as we originally booked a ying yang room but to be honest I would have preferred to have stayed with the ying yang as it had more character and features (our friends stayed in a ying yang room 304) our room was nice but as it was on top floor we missed out on having the gorgeous Georgian windows with our sea view so it's a bit of a boring room aside from the fantastic deep bath that is! I'm also not a fan of the tiny wet rooms they have in the rooms instead of en suite with a proper shower as everything gets soaked and then you end up with a very wet loo & soggy toilet paper! Also cleanliness could be better as i found long hairs on floor (not mine) and tea facilities were very dusty and there were some stains on the cushions on bed (pillows and sheets all fine though). I did love the little gift bag of white company toiletries though very nice touch! If you are looking for somewhere to just sleep for a night then I would definitely recommend drakes but not if you were planning on lounging in your your room a bit more. I would stay here again but avoid the loft rooms on top floor.
