We visited Brighton for a Groupon Deal for Afternoon Tea with all day parking which is very good value considering the cost of parking in Brighton these days. The afternoon tea was superbly presented, very good quality and with prompt and courteous service.

We arrived Friday afternoon for a two night stay. Parked in the underground car park and took the lift into hotel reception. We found the girl on reception check-in unfriendly and surly. We were in Brighton to attend our sons wedding at the royal Pavillion and we were excited and looking forward to our stay at the Thistle. She created... More

I was disappointed to read about the first bad impression created by one of our team member at the front desk.

The hotel was nice enough and excellent location close to everything. We had an executive double room with a sea view. The view was good and worth the extra, and the binoculars in room was a nice touch, but i still think that overall it was very overpriced. Nicely decorated but walls were extremely thin and bed wazs very hard.... More

I visited recently with my family and the first impression of the hotel is that the staff are very eager to please, in particular the chap who took our luggage whose name i cant recall.

The Management of the Thistle Brighton should be very proud of their team. ALL staff made guest attention a priority and we felt exceptionally "well looked-after". Our recent stay of two nights, in a very comfortable room, with dinner and breakfast could not have been bettered and was great value. And, of course, the location of the Thistle is a... More

What a great greeting from the two concierge guys - not surprised they've both been voted employee of the month. And that set the tone for our stay - great staff. Shame the hotel rooms were a bit careworn - air con didn't work properly in one of ours, TV controls didn't work either and the beds were just about... More

Stayed here for the marathon weekend. We were very happy with the quality of the room, the restaurant and the service on reception. I parked in the underground car park and it was nice to be able to pay on exit well after we had checked out. Excellent sea-front view. Highly recommended.

My wife and I competed in the Brighton marathon and stayed at the Thistle. We have 2 young children so my in-laws came too. Fantastic hotel and friendly staff and food amazing.
