My friend and I had an overnight stay in this hotel whilst on a weekend break to Brighton. We were disgusted at the room, the wallpaper was peeling off the wall, the walls themselves were disintegrating and the hotel staff have clearly done a bodge job trying to fix it. The tv was about 30 years old and the picture... More

I stayed here for one night with a friend. For £55 a night, the location was fantastic and the hotel was fine - it wasn't spotless, but it was relatively clean and everything worked - it lived up to my expectations having read other reviews here. My main annoyance was that check out was at 10am, which I've never experienced... More

Came for a conference. Prices cheap but several annoyances: one that a fire alarm went off incessantly at 7am for half a hour. Second, that the area behind the bedside tables was dirty and I found fingernails and old nail varnish bottles behind them. Third, the room temperature was too high and impossible to ventilate because the window looked out... More

We stayed here for a stag weekend in March..... wont be going back. For what it's worth, our weekend was great and we could of (might as well of) slept anywhere including the beach. For the money we paid..... not worth it but never the less it was a great location and ideal for having a night out and getting... More

The outside of the hotel promises much as the paint work looks tidy and is still being worked on. It's the interior that's somewhat disappointing. I had booked three rooms for a party of 5, months before arriving. So this block booking you except to be together, but no. They put us on several floors, one underground and miles away.... More

I failed to lookup what others had posted and I'm sorry I did. We paid A LOT for a very disappointing visit. The room was very small. The furniture was worn out the finish was worn and chipped the mirror, picture frame and headboard were mounted to the walls with large screws which were very visible. The wall paper was... More

Was bought a Groupon voucher as a gift. Dinner, Bottle of Wine, Room for the night and breakfast. After reading the reviews on here I thought we were basically going to have to sleep in the car. We figured we'd give it a go! Checked in with out printed voucher (another couple tried to check in but didn't have the... More

I swear it would of been quicker if i jumped over the desk and checked myself in. Finally we were given a key. On entering our room we we greeted with a... More

I didn't even want to give it 1 star. It was absolutely awful. I was blocked up after a 1 night stay because of the dust. We booked in as a last minute rush and I am completely honest when I say I would have had a better night sleep on the stony beach. We had a room on the... More

It did not happen this before you reported,... More
