My spectacular girl friend and I spent one night here on a weekend away in Brighton. Firstly this hotel is in a great location and is far cheaper than most the hotels in Brighton. However, what makes it stand head and shoulders above the rest is its quirky charm and character which is very fitting for Brighton! Our room was... More

Going to Brighton? Have little ones ? Look no further. My wife and two children (3 and 4) had a wonderful weekend in the Basement Suite. The kids loved the bunk beds and the Aero hot cocoa. We loved the space, the separate room to watch movies, the cocktail bar! Most of all we loved the staff and we could... More

This was my fifth stay in the Artist Residence and I’ve reviewed it very positively in the past. This stay I felt just a *tiny* bit disappointed. Since my last visit the hotel has merged with the hotel next door and is now twice as big. It still has all the lovely things - great art, delicious breakfast, quality linen... More

Definitely a hotel for the younger person, we had the last room available which was on the top floor Room 11, unfortunately the lift did not work all the way, only to floor 3, this meant that we needed to climb a very narrow and steep stairway with a heavy suitcase; and as we are over 60 this was not...

We usually stay at the Seattle when weekending in Brighton but now the Seattle is too tired and the staff are not always nice so I looked for an alternative and I am so pleased I did. The location is great, two minutes from the beach and five from the lanes with a car park right in front (council owned).... More

I was lucky to get a room here via LastMinute, needed to be in Brighton for a photoshoot and there weren't many options on a Sat night...I had a brilliant stay in a fab room with a smashing view over the square and down to the Sea and (what's left of) the Pier (Room 2 btw).

Just got back from 2 nights at the Artist Residence. (3 girls away for a weekend break) we stayed in the basement room with a little courtyard. Compact, but cosy. The staff were charming, the breakfast was lovely, and there's a great cocktail bar too. Pleasantly surprised. Would stay there again.

Great pad to stay in with lovely rooms overlooking the square and old pier. Service superb and food good. Nicely themed and fun rooms however bathrooms a little cramped and close to the bed with shutters...not much privacy! I'm sure that not all rooms are like this. Highly recommend however.
