Really cool place. Very different from anywhere else I've stayed. Lots of attention to detail on the deco - but didn't feel at all hipster or unfriendly. Staff were great and very helpful. Reception/Breakfast area was really nicely done with funky deco. There was a ping pong room which we didnt get time to use. The new bar attached to... More

Dear Neil, Thank you for your review. I hope you will have opportunity to use the ping pong room next time you visit. I am glad you liked the breakfast, it is freshly prepared every day, as a result of this during busy periods it can take longer but we hope it was worth waiting for it. I am looking... More

What a fab, original hotel! I loved the feel of this quirky boutique hotel. The artwork is amazing and the place oozes style and warmth. The staff were very lovely and helpful. Breakfast was amazing ... And there's nothing mini about the breakfast! I'd most definitely return but would choose to stay in a different room. We had the compact... More

I've been here a few times now, the cocktail shack is brilliant but can be expensive. The real jewel in the crown is Half Man Half Burger, I would struggle to recommend a better burger in Brighton. Only problem is they only do it for 5 hours on a Saturday.

Arriving on a very wet October evening, drenched to the bone, what a pleasure to stumble through the doors into such a refreshingly different hotel. With art adorning every wall, a very welcome smile and help booking a taxi it was clear we were in for a pleasant stay. Those initial thoughts born from a 5 minute entrance carried through... More

I loved this hotel. It does all the essentials, providing a good night's sleep in clean and comfortable rooms, but with such thoughtful originality. Each room decorated individually with lovely, creative touches, and all the staff were fab. Then, in the morning, I had the best coffee outside of France. I definitely recommend it.
