Stayed one night, in the Suite...not told it was in the basement...nor how noisy it would be as its directly under the Restaurant and Bar... Initially staff were excellent, the young barman concocting cocktails was great....very helpful but breakfast staff were in comparison, very poor...totally ignored for 15 mins despite some prompting...eventually we left and took our custom to a...

Just back from spending Friday night at The Artist Residence in Brighton and from start to finish the whole experience was a joy. We received a warm welcome upon arrival and it was immediately apparent that the evening ahead was going to be rather special. Our room, one of the larger sea view rooms was beautifully decorated with a large... More

Apart from the stairs which go on for ever, the rooms are very nicely appointed. Nice views of the old West Pier from the front. A well sited hotel within reach of many bars and restaurants. The eating/check in area is modern and makes you feel very welcome as soon as you are through the front door. Staff explained the... More

I booked us in here for a night before talking at a conference. It looked fun and funky on the website, and it was. It's an easy walk from the station and taxi ride out to the University where we were working. The décor is, indeed fun and funky - a sort of pop art meets shabby chic effect. Our... More

Don’t stay in a boring plain big brand name chain hotel when you can have fun quirky clean rooms here with ‘oh so comfy’ beds for not much greater cost. I loved the little touches like Smile radio channel being played in the bedrooms. The whole place has a lovely ambience and a good quiet very scenic location just on... More

Stayed in a cosy room on the top floor, it was really quiet, but I think that was because we had no adjoining rooms! Loved the arty, modern design, and it was a cute place to stay for a girlie weekend away. Shame that our breakfast (scrambled eggs on toast) took one hour to arrive on our first morning -... More
