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

We have been staying here for nearly four years ever since our daughter started at University of Sussex. This time we were staying to go to her graduation and we feel it is now a home from home. The room was comfortable and clean and the staff are really friendly. We had an evening meal this time as well as... More

Washed don by a fresh pot of Earl Grey tea. We enjoyed the whole thing so much I popped into the kitchen to get the dressing recipe from... More
