Comfortable Hotel - Excellent Staff

Posted 21-Mar-2017
Pros: Clean & Comfortable
Cons: Hotel was very shabby - needs a facelift to put in a 4 star category.
Location: Did not have time to do anything - I was only there overnight. Looked a beautiful town.
I stayed for one night at this hotel. I had a large, comfortable room, which was spotlessly clean.

Perfect hotel,Its close to beach

Posted 13-Mar-2017
The staying was amazing. We had to wait until 13:30 to get our room but they let us wait inside and kept us warm and they took our bags. The beach is so close like literally front of the hotel. The rooms are amazingly comfortable the room service are quick and kind. I had the perfect time even though i stayed for 1 night it was great. I recommend my friends and family to go to this hotel and for sure i will go to it as well when i come Brighton.

Enormous room overlooking the sea.

Posted 11-Mar-2017
Pros: Comfortable, welcoming and ever so slightly seedy in its public areas. Love the sea views from bar and breakfast room.
Cons: Parking - more of it and cheaper.
Location: Great pubs- try the lobst era and lion for an ace Sunday roast.
A comfortable and gigantic room overlooking the sea for only £62. Comfortable. Just a bit noisy with traffic as Windows are large and not, I think, double-glazed. Ther was a hitch with the initial,booking but staff were helpful. Pre booked breakfast is £11 eat all you can. Parking an additional £18.

expensive and a bit tired. Staff were great but working in somewhere which needs more investment.

Make Sure you will get booked "Sea-View"

Posted 02-Mar-2017
Pros: Room was a good size and comfortable.
Cons: Quality of reception and welcome. Should automatically offer explanation and advice about the of "privilege", be up-front about no "Sea View".
I booked a "privilege" "Sea-View room. When I arrived I was given a room overlooking a small narrow courtyard at back. On returning to reception I was advised no sea-view room available. I had to ask about the "privilege" element. "coffee machine" (had to ask for coffee capsules), "newspaper" (for morning), asked for Guardian, Times delivered. "Gifted a "free drinks token" for the mix up over booking at the same time as being advised to take up issue re room with Expedia (ie hotel accepted no real responsibility). left disappointed by the failure to provide Sea View.

An enjoyable short break

Posted 26-Feb-2017
Pros: Great location, looks lovely and grand (especially at night when lit up). Hotel staff were helpful (especially the restaurant waiter on 24.02.17).
Cons: Some decor needs improving as it is looking old and tired in some parts.
Location: Brilliant location on the beach front, only a few minutes walk from everything (Pier, Lanes, Gardiner Street, i360)
The hotel is very convenient and just a short walk from the main attractions. It is an old fashioned grand hotel and some decor improvement is required but we had good service from helpful staff. Our family room was a good size, comfortable and quiet so just what we needed. We only ate in the restaurant once but it was good quality and reasonably priced. They made an extra effort for our child who loved the sausages and mash.

A bit shabby but ok for the money

Posted 21-Feb-2017
Pros: location and price
Cons: needs a refurb esp the bathroom
Good location 10 mins walk to town . £18 to park was a bit extreme but still cheaper than ncp I guess. Room was in need of a refurb whole hotel feels dated (although clean) - room and bed was on a tilt and we felt like we had vertigo (didn't notice it too much after a few drinks ha ha) but for £60 cant complain too much. Bathroom was clean but outdated, shower was about 20 years old and no loo brush or extraction fan and it smelt damp. Bathroom products were good though. The room was and hotel was too hot and felt like a sauna even with our windows open. Good tea and coffee facilities although we had coffee pods and no coffee maker - had room service and my avocado and chicken and bacon sarnie was shocking, cheap white bread and ready made soggy filling should have complained but did not want to cause a scene with the other half as he paid for my bday treat. To be fair his burger and chips looked great! A bit disappointed to be stuck next to a family room with a adjoining door could hear everything and despite having asked for a quiet room not near a laundry room our room was next to the door so we heard it banging every time a guest passed. Shame. Tv also had a red line down it - time for a new screen! Shame there were no movie options also. Despite my negative points we enjoyed our staff and the staff were friendly and efficient.
