We booked 2 rooms because they didn't have a family room. Both rooms were damp and smelly. We even found a pair of socks under the bed. There was hairs in the bath, looks like they only made the bed after previous occupier

Lesson to be learnt - check on Trip Advisor before you book!!! This place is an absolute disgrace - we arrived Saturday 13 and should have left tomorrow but have left this morning as could'nt face another night in this place. The bathroom smelt if stale urine, unable to bath as the bath plug was screwed to the dude if... More

This hotel should be called a hostel and even this would give it a good name. What a terrible place to stay. I should have read the reviews before booking. What a shame as this hotel as it is so close to all the things you need to see in Brighton Our first room was damp, dity and dingy, only... More

My BF and I stayed here at the weekend (13 September). I only booked this hotel because everything else was full. I would not book this hotel again. The hotel is old and damaged and in great need of repair and modernisation. Our room was large (4-single beds!) the window opaque (assuming because the view was of a wall -... More

I tend not to take too much notice of negative reviews simply because I think people expect too much but in the case of this place, most were spot on. When arriving it was clear that the hotel is in desperate need of updating & redecorating. The room was shabby. The bathroom was stained & had mould. The windows were... More

After reading the reviews of this hotel I prepared myself for the worse. I must admit from entering the room I was surprised...it was clean, bed linen and towels were clean and changed daily.. TV, hair dryer and tea & coffee facilities also in the room and breakfast was fine. The room itself did look tired and in need of... More

really quite unpleasant. I stayed here because there was no where else, and was tempted to walk straight out. But the staff were friendly and trying hard. It is falling to pieces, and the 60's disco ( no one dancing) blasted me from the bar pretty quick. I thought a place this old might be quirky, but it's just tacky... More

This place is way over priced, I paid £169 for a superior double room with sea view, 1 night no breakfast, everything in the room was ancient and really tired, but what really got me was how dirty the windows were, they say sea view, I had trouble seeing out of them, the whole place needs some seroius investment pumped...

We had a Groupon voucher for one night Dinner, Bed and Breakfast including a bottle of wine. The hotel's location was great, and our room had a sea view . It is a shame because the hotel was obviously once very splendid but has fallen on hard times. The outside desperately needs painting and throughout the hotel looked in need... More
