My partner John stayed here while I was in the Nuffield health hospital 5 minutes down the road for a week in March and loved it. So when I had my follow consult we decided to make a long stay of it and booked in for four days. It was lovely, the staff are so friendly and helpful and the... More

Friendly staff. Hotel comfortable. Needs some some attention. Outstanding view of sea and downs. First breakfast not brilliant. Next morning excellent. Would definitely go back. This is also a dog friendly hotel.

Stay here with my parents when they dropped me off for university. Lovely, clean hotel, nicely decorated rooms, friendly staff and great (and cheap!) pub food. Definitely worth a visit if you are heading to Brighton - it's easy to get into the centre!

I booked two colleagues into the static caravan for a work trip last month as I thought it would give them more space and freedom than a hotel room. However they had two miserable nights there as it was so cold plus the TV didn't work properly and they said it generally wasn't nice. I complained about this after the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and chose the hotel due to the prices and the fact that it has free parking which is rare in and around Brighton. You can stay in some fabulous hotels in Brighton but you pay through the nose for the privilege and probably wont get the great service you get here...also parking in town... More

The décor was a bit tired and the tv did not work but the place was clean and the breakfast was good, the room was a little cold and seemed no way of adjusting the temperature. but overall ok and an atmosphere in the pub.

The people at The Downs were really nice and friendly. As a pub the prices were decent, which was good as we went for a night out in Brighton with some friends. Price wise was very good considering its location and the inclusion of the Breakfast, which itself was really nice. However the hall was was a bit smelly, the... More
