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

Good food but grubby accommodation with paper-thin walls. The room smelled like a dirty laundry basket. Understaffed desk. Visible distrust of customers, TV remote on application, all money up front, no cancellation refund within seven days - yes, seven. Never again.

Stayed here whilst visiting friends in Brighton, it was the only place we could actually get booked in. Was a bit aprihensive as other reviews had said it was a meeting place for stag and hen parties... which we did see hungover in the breakfast room the next day. Room was basic but clean and tidy, with two single beds,... More

Went to Gather Inn last night. We had booked a table for 4 which was reserved although one of the mis matched chairs was torn but not the end of the world. Ordered drinks so far so good. Ordered food, 3 starters and and 4 mains ordered at the same time as advised by the waitress. After a good 45... More

A great return visit-this time for my son's wedding. Again we found the hotel to be very comfortable and extremely good value. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and the location made for an easy walk back from the reception.
