We were going away with friends , without kids , and thought staying in a quirky Grown-up hotel would be a good idea and we loved the concept of the hotel. The hotel is in a good spot and not too far from the town. I can imagine in the summer it would be perfect for a nice evening stroll... More

Positives- great cocktail bar, lovely staff who were very friendly. Great bath in the main bedroom, with a fantastic view. Areas for improvement- the soundproofing is bad, we were in room 25 and were woken up by the people above which sounded like a herd of elephants. The hotel is a bit shabby, the main stairwell reminded us of a... More

Lovely quirky little hotel, huge mural in room, comfy bed, clean, friendly staff and an excellent cocktail bar. One downside which knocked off a star: lack of sufficient soundproofing between rooms mean clubbers chatting when they returned next door at 5am woke us up.

We have just spent three relaxing nights in one of Brighton's quirkiest boutique hotel's! Our first room was in the basement (brilliant for a party of guests) for two of the night's and our third night was in one of the "bigger seafront view" rooms. We could not fault either. The staff were lovely (in particular James) and the breakfasts... More

I was in a small double on the fourth floor with a sea view. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was well equipped with good quality shower gel and body lotion. There was plenty storage space and a lift was available. I liked the touch of the radio being left on playing music when the room had been... More

We've stayed over the weekend and I must say the setting is great, walking distance from the sea and town (if you know the shortcuts 😉) However, the room we got was not what I've expected nor seen on the website. It looks like the website shows only "the best off" and if I'd see the bedroom (no 1) I'd... More

I stayed in the cosy double room, it was a lovely room, stylish and came complete with Tunnock's caramel wafers along with tea and coffee. Staff were friendly and welcoming, and took in my bag, as I arrived before the check in time, and left it in the room, ready for my return. Great location, clean and well decorated.

If you are looking for a hotel with vast public areas this is not the hotel for you. Its charm lies in delightfully and artistically as the name implies scattered over four floors along twisting corridors. Our room at the top of the house had a sea view with a double and single bed, both supremely comfortable with silky smooth... More
