Nice hotel, quite expensive £180 for one night was a lot for a short stay!!! And price didn't work with the "luxury" of the room! BUT food was lovely, pool was small but clean, and warm. Lifts were safe (I hate lifts!!!) great views over the sea, nice staff (except cleaners who didn't speak any English !!) all in all... More

Rooms clean and spacious but tired. We stayed in room 432 and the door looked like it had been forced with a crowbar! Side seaview by a stetch of the imagination not sea view as advertised. Food menu very limited and the steak inedible. Very over priced £9 for a glass of wine! 4* prices 3* service. Over charged at... More

Georgous hotel, lovely open plan feeling to the foyer area, which is charming. Staff were extremely helpful, attentive to our every need, but not too over the top. The situation of the hotel together with facilities are second to none. Our bedroom, was perfectly clean and had wonderful sea views. A great nights sleep and gorgeous self service breakfast was...

Dinner was fab, food quality good, receptionist very helpful and thoughtful. Standard Room was just that - nothing exciting but did the job - a good nights sleep and a good shower the the... More

I came to stay in the Thistle hotel when i went on a family trip to Brighton. I was already impressed with Brighton itself when i drove past the pier and so on. The inside of the hotel is brilliant. especially the bar area and restaurant which, i thought was very pleasing. We had never been to Brighton you see... More

The food came which looked very bland no salad or cress, etc. the... More

Only stay here if you want poor customer service dished out by incompetent staff. Loud music from disco/bar that adjoins hotel, woke us up at 12:45am! Reception staff inept and incompetent, tried to tell us that no-one else complained, people were ringing to complain. 5 star room rates but 3 star hotel, drab and tired. Most of all I loved... More
