"Very clean, close to the beach! Language barriers!"
I was staying at this hotel with a large group of people from work as it was out works Christmas Party!
I stood in the queue behind two people who were already checking in and they then stepped away from the desk. The member of staff behind the counter (there was three, a team leader, assistant and a trainee) were doing paperwork then the assistant looked up after about 5 minutes and said "oh sorry I didn't see you waiting there".
I checked in without any issues, they advertise they have parking but at 4PM on a Friday, the carpark was full!! There is a parking area about 10 minute walk away thats run by the council.
I checked in and went up to the room, the bathroom was massive, the room was quite small. Two single beds, wardrobe and a desk. It was a bit silly really, it they made the bathroom smaller there would be a heck of a lot of room in the main bedroom.
Anyway, i stepped out the room and its a bit of a maze this building and not greatly sign posted. I saw a cleaner and I said "Afternoon, where is the staircase to get downstairs to reception".
The cleaner looked at my blankly, so I said it again, she then spoke in an Eastern European accent I am unsure what language and I then walked off.
Other than that, the hotel was very clean, that I have to say!
Breakfast was served 0830-1030 so it only gave you two hours ... you choose off a menu and its brought to your table. Wasn't a big fan of the cooked breakfast, the sausage tasted fake and the beans were cold.
Stayed in the tower suite which had a incredible view of the pier and seafront. Very spacious room with a large bed, sofa, dressing table, huge TV. Also the bathroom didn't go a miss with space either lovely shower, double sink and a jacuzzi bath tub!
The Queens Hotel is located on the seafront and within one mile of the business and shopping districts of Brighton. This …More
Ideally placed between the station and shops. Hotel was not luxurious but clean, friendly and comfortable although the bed was a little too firm for my taste. Hotel is on a "main" road but we didn't notice any noise.
On the south English coast, Brighton is a popular beach destination, especially with Londoners as the train ride between the two cities is less than an hour. The seafront has bars, restaurants, nightclub,s and amusement arcades, as well as two old-fashioned piers. Brighton hosts the Brighton Festival each May, which is the UK's second-largest arts festival.
