HENS BEWARE!!! DO NOT STAY HERE UNLESS YOU WANT RANDOM MEN WALKING IN ON YOUR GROUP WHILE THEY ARE GETTING DRESSED!!! I recently stayed here for my hen party with 13 other ladies. Upon arrival we were greeted by the hotel staff, they were very friendly and we had a few drinks at their bar (good cocktails and very cheap!)... More

I visited recently with a group of friends for a Hen do. What was advertised and implied to be an exclusive and private 'hen suite' turned out to be much the opposite. On the first night a man entered our designated area to use the toilet - because apparently all the downstairs ones were occupied. Not only was this an... More

I have stayed at the Gather Inn on many occasions and would recommend this place to anyone looking for somewhere to stay. The staff are really nice, friendly and so helpful. Keep up the great work and I will be there again soon.

Simple rooms, no luxary, no bathroom, but big enough (6 beds), clean and affortable. The bar and food are good, children friendly. There was a misunderstanding after we left. They thougth that we too a beach plaque out of our room and charged us £ 20,00 for this. This was wrong and unaccepable for us because we didn't. After complaining... More

Stayed here around a month ago now, shocking customer service. Made to feel like outsiders as soon as we entered the bar. The gentlemen who runs reception was very friendly. Cleaner visited our room and got told by the neighbors they was mooching through our personal bags. No fresh towels provided or room vaccumed or toilets replenished. Arrived back on... More

" We pride ourselves on providing not just a room for the night but an experience" quoted from http://www.brightonbnb.co.uk/guest-rooms/ just about sums up this stay. It's the most horrendous, grubby place totally not reflected by the photos on the website, our room was £115 and it was the most depressing room I have EVER stayed in. We got a dodgy... More

Very friendly and helpful staff, nice homely room with a nice traditional feel. Very nice location, close to Brighton centre, the seafront and lagoon for a good walk around. Tasty breakfast and great food in the evening. Would stay again!

Struggled to find a hotel in the Brighton area that accepted large groups for a cricket tour. This hotel at least accepts large groups with minimum of fuss but be prepared to have to leave your credit card details (including security code) on arrival. A bit heavy handed. Location is pretty good, a few minutes walk from Portslade station. Parking... More
