“Small, but lovely and a much nicer experience than the big chains on the seafront”
The Neo may be a small guest house but their standards are just as good as a good hotel chain and the decor and service was fantastic. The staff went out of their way to ensure I had everything I needed and upgraded me to a bigger room just because they had room. The breakfast (blueberry pancakes and a smoothy) cooked to order was lovely. It is much nice to stay in a small friendly hotel then a tired out, faceless hotel chain.
“Neo Hotel in April”
I have stayed in a lot of hotels in and around Brighton and I have not experienced a more charming hotel than this. More importantly, the staff were amongst the most helpful, polite and professional that I have ever experienced, anywhere. In addition, it really felt like a Brighton hotel, rather than some impersonal, anonymous chain hotel. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. I will definitely be using it again. Steve
LOVELY FRIENDLY LITTLE HOTEL. BEST BREAKFAST WE HAVE EVER HAD IN AN ESTABLISHMENT. ONLY SMALL CRITICSM IS THE LACK OF A FAN IN ROOM DUE TO HOT WEATHER, BUT THIS WON'T EFFECT MANY PEOPLE USUALLY IN ENGLAND!!!
“A little Brighton gem”
Lovely hotel, really beautifully decorated, super friendly staff. Location was excellent. Breakfasts were fantastic-- American pancakes, French toast, veggie options, real coffee. I would definitely stay there again and have already recommended it to others. Only downsides: the twin room is really, really small. Sink tap in the bathroom was a little loose and the door to the bathroom had a big dent in it. Small things that could be easily fixed!
“Dare I tell everyone that this is a gem of a find?”
Clean, comfortable beds, good location. Superb breakfast. Unassuming yet attentive staff. Quirky decor. A couple of streets away to underground car park but Brighton is a nightmare for parking full stop. A gem of a find, I suspect much better than many of the hotels on the front.
“Good value for money”
Very friendly staff, lovely breakfast. Ideal for a short stay/business trip and good value for money.
“Relaxing hotel with great breakfasts”
Interesting decor throughout the hotel. Gorgeous breakfast with delicious choices and relaxing atmosphere, including great music. Friendly staff. Good choice of DVDs. Lovely big room although would have liked curtains or better blinds to block out the light. The only down side was the tiny bathroom with the cramped, smallest sink in the world which is totally inedequate. Also some simple things would improve the bathroom: hooks behind the door, an extra shelf on the wall and a little shelf in the shower to put your own toiletries.
“Cosy and friendly”
great staff ,excellent breakfast,and comfortable beds but cramped room and bathroom. Expected more room for the price.
“Serenaded in Brighton”
Plus points: decor, lovely comfy bed, friendly and pleasant staff and a really nice cooked breakfast. Minus points: Noisy (single glazed windows), in particular a drunk singing outside our bedroom window (well, three floors down) at around midnight (on a Monday evening); water in shower lukewarm at best.
“Cramped room - noisy but breakfast great.”
Whatever you do, don't book Room 4! Billed as an executive room (and therefore significantly more money than the standard room) it was hard for two people to move around it without bumping into each other. This was mainly because they had crammed a king sized bed into a room too small to take it. The bathroom was tiny too, with no hooks or hand rail to put your towels on after a shower. The wardrobe was a make shift cupboard and you had to get your clothes over a set of drawers in order to hang them up. There was also the usual disappointment - no hairdryer socket close to a mirror, so I had to dry my hair sat on the bed as the only socket I could reach (without upsetting the DVD player) was behind the bed! To top it all, the room overlooked a street which was noisy with people from 6pm until 3am. The Lion & Lobster pub around the corner seemed to be a popular source of the shouting, so if you do decide to stay here on a weekend, ask for a room facing onto Oriental Place. The only saving grace was the breakfast! The granola mixed with yoghurt and fruit was yummy and the blueberry pancakes with bacon and maple syrup, a real treat. The staff were very friendly, although we were a bit put out my the receptionist who asked us to sign a form when we checked in holding us liable for, and I quote 'if we trash the room'. We are both in our 50's - highly unlikely! I think a little training is needed here!!
