For us this was the perfect location and our room was excellent. We experienced both an evening meal and breakfast in the restaurant and both were of the highest standard with exceptional service by tentative staff where nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely return and highly recommend this hotel.

We have stayed at this hotel several times but this last visit was definitely the final. It is superbly situated with lovely sea views . The price this year was 30% higher than a year ago but we were told it was having a complete refurbishment and would warrant the increased price. Well this was done and they have added... More

After a friends recommendation we stayed here whilst visiting Brighton for the day. Parked up at the hotel and got the bus to Brighton. Came back later and was pleasantly surprised at the facilities the hotel offered. Will come definitely come back. Loved the quaintness of Rottingdean. Lovely pubs and restaurants on hand too.

After booking the hotel, we read bad reviews on TA which concerned us. However, the parking policy was clearly explained on checking in, our room upstairs facing the sea was spacious, clean and had a great view of the sea and beach.We ate lunch at the hotel which was pleasing, standard pub grub. There was a wide choice for breakfast.... More

Arrived a little early and was greeted by a happy, helpful Kevan on reception. He checked and my room was ready so I was allowed in. It was very clean, and had all I would need for my 2 days. I dropped my bag off and ventured into Brighton on the bus which I got right outside the door. Buses... More

We decided to have a roast on Sunday (09/08/15), and ordered 3 Lamb & 1 Pork. The presentation was completely non-existent, there were only two or three burnt very small roast potatoes on each plate, a helping of mash which would have just about filled a teaspoon, the Yorkshires were rubbery and limp, the peas were dry and the chef...

We stayed for two nights (Sat and Sun) had great weather and slept with our windows open the second night. We were rewarded with a great view of moonlight over the ocean. Service in the restaurant was friendly and speedy despite it being a very busy weekend. Food was well presented, usual Olde English Inn fayre. We had a meal... More

We booked this hotel up with Olde English Inns and we have never been disappointed using this site . The hotel has a fantastic location right on the front and our bedroom had a balcony which was a bonus . Listening to the sea was great but again it rained most of the weekend which took the enjoyment away of... More
