I went camping with my son this August to Stonehenge, then we decided to go to Brighton. I found the Downs Hotel online and decided to book for one night. The staff were friendly. The room was poor I mean very poor. The curtains need replacing no chance of a sleep. On a busy junction with no chance of leaving... More

10 minute wait to book in as barman was busy. Eventually, after having had to pay final bill, got our key but had to find our own room up very musty staircase. No hot water in shower, no signal on TV, had to pull out bedside table to plug in kettle, broken sash cord on window, cracked window pane. Before... More

I arrived to smiling, happy staff who told me everything i needed to know! The location was far enough away but not too far. The staff told me all about buses and taxis. The locals were friendly. The room was small but very, very reasonably priced and clean. The decor was refreshing and the view was incredible. I didn't have... More

On entering, staff were very helpful. Ample free parking, helpful guidebook in the bedroom. We stayed in the four-poster bedroom, which was very comfortable and had the most amazing view! Has free wifi, the best breakfast ever! And has a bus stop a couple of yards outside the hotel, which can take you to the Pier in about 10 minutes.... More

This was the nearest place to Brighton I could find this weekend. Tiny single room which I suspect was once a bathroom since it only had a frosted window! Awful squeaky bed, grubby looking shower cubicle (so I didn;t use it), and very loud music from the bar downstairs. I had to watch television until it stopped because there was... More
