Apart from the fact that there was no parking and a rather shabby exterior of both properties, the rooms were spotless and cleaned each day, the staff very, very friendly. The breakfast was served in the guest house next door and, again, whilst shabby looking from the outside, the food was good and the service excellent. £60 a night for... More

stayed on new year's eve and therefore expected it to be overpriced and slightly noisy. However, the room was quite unclean and the bathroom was shockingly small. We did not want to stay for breakfast due to the look of the guest house next door which was serving the breakfast. Walls are so thin we could hear the couple in... More

We paid £60 for Thursday night and £90 for Friday night. At the Friday night rate, this guesthouse is very overpriced. We found this to be very noisy at night time but in fairness I should add that we were there over Halloween, which seemed to drive the residents of Brighton into some kind of alcoholic frenzy. We were allocated... More

Both my friend and I are still in shock as to how we were treated at this establishment. We have travelled the world for the past 12 years for both work and pleasure and yet neither of us have ever experienced the madness and rudeness that is the 'old palace guest house'. We were adbrubtly woken by a member of... More
