I Stayed at this hotel last Saturday, in which I was greeted by a young girl I think her name was kelly, she was very polite, very helpful and generally made me feel welcome, I got to my room and considering I read reviews about this place before hand, I didn't know what to expect, I was very happy with...

Upon arrival there was no where to park which was a joke because it was £15 for 10 hours parking. The rooms were filthy with cotton buds and hair all over the rooms, stains on the towels and bedding, the toilets were unclean to say the least, but worst of all the shower gave electric shocks everytime you tried to...

Myself and a friend booked a last minute weekend to Brighton at this hotel - £90 for Friday and Saturday, we thought we were getting a bargain. Upon arrival, I was greeted by a disgustingly rude man who claimed to be the hotel manager - who lectured me for being parked outside, even though their website said they had parking... More

A shower you cant use, due to tiles broken away from the wall, bedroom blind broken, slopping bed, filthy thread bare carpet, dirty cups with original crusty label on the bottom, broken toilet seat, noisy guests. On the plus side a very helpful reception, after a short wait.

I was working in Brighton when my London digs for the night fell through, so was looking for somewhere to stay on a budget. This place looked too good to be true - £25 for a night, one room available. And so it proved. When I showed up a very destitute looking lady was trying to cram a pram through... More

I paid £40 for one night here, just wanted somewhere cheap to stay before the Brighton Half Marathon. I found it fine for this purpose. It's a bit of a walk from the station/town centre but great for the marina, Sea Life Centre, pier and wheel. It's all a bit small and poky, with a tiny cubical (cupboard?!) serving as... More

I spent £35 on a twin room for me and my friend, and it was everything we needed. Two decent beds, and an ensuite. There was a working TV, drinks facilitates and it was in a good location. Not sure why there's so many bad reviews on here. It's a really cheap hotel, so don't expect it to be perfect.

I always try to find something positive to say rather than give a bad review, but it this case I was unable to find anything. I had booked a triple room. When we arrived on a very wet and extremely windy evening we were asked how we wanted to pay. I said with my card, the response was I would... More

Very clean and good value for money even though our room was right at the top! great restaurants and shops within 5 min walk, beach 2 mins and pier 5 mins parking is a big issue as you have to park on the front next to the sea and this works out very expensive.
