I love this hotel. The bar area is so comfortable and relaxing, I enjoy sitting there having a drink either with company or on my own reading. The rooms are good with a real hairdryer and it on and ironing board. The linen is high quality. Lovely hotel, the only downside is it is expensive.

The foyer is decorated ready for Christmas and looks stunning. Quite busy but were seen quickly by friendly and efficient reception staff. We had a family room as there weren't any double rooms available in the... More

We stayed here for two nights for the Brighton Burlesque Festival and really can't find serious fault. Easy to find, great to be able to park in the underground car park and smack bang on Brighton sea front. Took seconds to get to the town and found everything needed practically on the doorstep. Half price room upgrade meant a spacious... More

The hotel is in a perfect position on the seafront and backs on to the Lanes. Room was very spacious and comfortable. The bathroom could do with new taps and bath panel as the ones in our room were rusty and worn. But on the positive side the shower was powerful and hot to anyone's liking. Breakfast was buffet style... More

We wanted to be in a central location and near the sea and thistle certainly had these going for it...we weren't disappointed, but what really wins this hotel over for us is the great staff that are extremely polite courteous and friendly. Especially Jerome (reservations manager). He couldn't do enough for us on our first anniversary. He called out of... More
