Stayed for just one night at the Thistle Hotel, Brighton with two young children (Girls, aged 8 and 5) and my wife for a quick couple of days break. Rate was decent enough I felt - £110 for a family room for the night - It had two double beds, Sea view (from one side of the Hotel, but not... More

We took advantage of the 3 for 2 nights offer, the room was clean and bed very comfortable, the room decor a bit tired, breakfast good, position fantastic as close to the lanes and seafront. Staff helpful. The internal rooms block out the late night noises and the even noisier seagulls. Fantastic value for money.

I stayed at the hotel mid-week in August 2009 for a 2 night break with my two teenage daughters. We got there at about 3pm and managed to park in hotel car park easily (£15 per 24 hours). The hotel atrium wowed the girls - very impressive and set the scene nicely. Our room was fine - just as you... More

I stayed overnight in a deluxe double room (room 320) on 13th aug, I'd actually requested a twin & couldnt get one due to a mix up but the staff were apologetic and helpful. The hotel is excellently situated right on the seafront, steps from the shore at the front and from the rear exit you come out onto a... More

I can't praise the Brighton Thistle highly enough. The hotel is ideally located on the seafront but has excellent access to The Lanes. All the staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The restaurant has lovely views across the beach and pier, ideal to start the day when having breakfast! Guests can use the leisure club which... More

I booked this hotel at the last minute for Gay Pride and was very impressed upon arrival. I booked a standard twin room, which overlooks a small square. Rooms were very clean, the bathroom was spotless and the room was presented to a very high standard. The beds were comfortable and clean. The room had plenty of storage space including... More

If you are staying in Brighton, you can definitely do worse than the Thistle Brighton. I love Brighton, its a great city and I have stayed in many of its hotels in recent years. However, for arguably the UK's premier resort, the general quality of accomdation and service it offers is very poor and expensive, so adjust your expectations accordingly.... More

We stayed at the end of March for 3 nights after going to a concert. It was a quiet hotel unlike other hotels we have stayed at in Brighton. It was clean and tidy. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times. We had room with a sea view and the double glazing worked to cut out the noise.... More

I have to say I never write reviews on anything but felt compelled to warn others not to stay here if at all possible. Our room was dirty, the remote was broke, the kettle was filthy which isnt great when you have a 10 week old baby requiring clean boiled water (we ended up having to use our toothbrush to... More
