stayed here on the 19th August with my wife. The hotel is well situated on the beach with a free car park. The staff were friendly and the food was of very good quality. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The only downside is that the room needed a paint and the bathroom needed re grouting... More

We asked if we could have a sea view at the time of booking (online). Did not get it but sort of understood as it was just for one night. We asked for a table by the window at dinner. Restaurant did not even get the booking so we took one of the two vacant tables looking at nothing much!... More

We were unfortunate to spend 2 nights here as a last resort due to everywhere else being full, definitely wouldn't return or recommend. Rip off prices for the state of the place for a start, on Saturday night the rate was £95 for a poky double room, with a view (and noise) of the main road outside. On arrival the... More

I am a regular customer at The White Horse and in general I like it but have to say that the lovely decked terrace never gets swept or cleaned which is a real shame as it has wonderful sea views and good quality furniture. with a little more attention to detail it could be superb. Qillcontinue to go there and... More

As visitors to UK my husband and I thought we should visit the iconic Brighton Pier but we really didn't want to have to hassle with parking, crowds and rip-off prices. Using Trip Advisor, we decided to book the White Horse Hotel but with some trepidation. It was great. Sure, the hotel is not the flashiest in some regards but... More

A simply awful experience. My room was small, hot and had frosted glass on windows which barely opened. It was also not serviced during my entire two night visit. I received no apology, merely a promise to have a word with the maid. On checking in, when I told the manageress neither I nor another guest could open my bedroom... More

The White Horse in Rottingdean is 'an old in', not a new hotel, keep that in mind. But, its charming, its situated just by the sea in Rottingdean, having breakfast/lunch/dinner whilst hearing the waves and the seagulls are great. The staff are great! The bus to downtown Brighton just outside the hotel. Despite 'all good' I would not recommend the... More
