3 of us staying here in November 2011 and then again in November 2014 and it has gone done hill slightly. The hotel is in much need of refurbishment. The rooms are very outdated however we found it clean and staff were friendly. You get what you pay for and we didn't pay very much.

Worst hotel I've stayed in. No parking despite booking website stating there was parking. Huge difficulty as husband partially sighted and I am on crutches - no help with luggage at all. Original room was supposed to be sea view which I had paid a supplement for. Had room on the first floor with flat roof and scaffolding outside -... More

Spent a night there and wasn't impressed. Beds a bit had, not very comfortable, very old fashioned place. But location is good, close to pier, lanes and centre. Staff nice and helpful. I'm not sure if I'd stay there again, there are nicer and cheaper hotels.

The communal areas look lovely and nicely decorated. Reception are quite efficient and friendly. Rooms are tired and not particularly well maintained. The bed is like a rock even when you sit on it. Bathroom has mould and a bit of a drain smell. Showers are warm but not particularly strong flow. Floorboards creak badly which can be very irritating.... More

I left London to escape to Brighton for a couple of days and booked this hotel, which has such a good location. Granted there are refurbs going on at the moment but they don't bother me. Every hotel has to have works done now and again. I was upgraded to a cosy double room and looks onto the seafront which... More

Me and my friend booked a double room five nights before we wanted to stay and it cost us £30. The room was clean enough and the toilets were all clean with fresh towels, but the room all together was nothing special. We had a sea - view, which we had not originally planned for, which was a good addition... More

We came to meet family the hotel was under-refurbished. Beds were clean and tidy and all so the bathroom maid service every day with clean towels. Buffet for meals with a good choice plates on th small size but no problem going for a refil.

The room was so far out of the way up and down multiple staircases. The room was damp, mouldy and dirty. The area is fantastic and is worth a visit. There are so many hotels in the area we chose this one as it was fairly cheap and had a last min booking. DO NOT BOOK
