Wonderful breakfast, kind staff and a super location! We did enjoy our stay at Motel Schmotel. The B&B is located close to the boulevard on one side and close to the shops on the other side. A charming and relatively quiet square, our car was parked at the back (not included in the basic price). Easy walking distance to all... More

I've stayed here a couple of times now and absolutely recommend it. The rooms are lovely, breakfast is brilliant and the staff are fantastic. It's in a great location too, just off the beach and next to Churchill square, book and enjoy!!

We had a sneaky night away, the room was very clean, the bed was very comfortable and the staff were wonderfully friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were delish. Can highly recommend and we will be back. C and N

I had read about Hotel Schmotel before and decided to give it a go. £220 in room 4, two nights including breakfast which was delicious. The location is very convenient. Short walk to Beachfront,...

We had a very good experience at this hotel: it is beautifully decorated, very clean, staff is very friendly... What I liked the most was that we didn't have to ask for anything because all we needed was already there. Breakfast was delicious!

We stayed 1 night at this lovely B&B. A lot of the reviewers mention the small rooms. We got room 1, which is meant to be one of the bigger rooms. It was plenty big enough with around 2–6 feet of space from any side of the bed. Certainly enough for a suitcase, dressing up, etc. However, the room is... More

Great value for money, "you get what you pay for in this world" room was small but we just wanted a bed for a couple of nights and it was very comfortable. Breakfast was the mutts nuts and you could have it in your room 😄😄 parking in Brighton is not the best but owner has a couple of places... More

well priced, wonderful staff, filling and fresh breakfast and clean rooms! only negative would be the size of the rooms but myself and my partner found room 9 plentiful for 2. breakfast menu is very vast and very quirky but the lovely staff are more than happy to switch things around for you!
