Well, its a Hilton but this hotel has no class. First thing is the rooms are tiny. I booked a seaview double room, described as having a sofa bed as well as double bed. Meaning that i would have some space, there was no sofa bed, therefore the room was frankly absurdly small for the price. When i explained to... More

Good location and should be grand but the Hilton feels impersonal, is not well looked after and provided a very unrelaxing stay. The staff don't speak English well, the room was poky, windows were dirty, shower had 2 settings: too hot or scalding, shower curtain was tatty plastic and rubbish remained on the main staircase for the whole of our...

The problem with a 4 star hotel is that expectations are higher, not unreasonably considering the 4 star prices. I was surprised, therefore, at the fact that at breakfast the places were laid out with only one knife, presumably following the American habit of using dirty cutlery for the next course. As others have noticed, there are often dirty trays... More

Stayed at the Hilton on Tuesday the 19th august 2014. Room 554. This hotel is a Hilton by name and not by the usual standards of the chain. Although the hotel has been grand in the past it requires urgent refurbishment.

This was my second visit this year to the Hilton in Brighton. We arrived at the hotel early and though our room wasn't ready staff were more than happy to take our bags whilst we looked around the hotel and local shops. As this was out anniversary, the Hilton made it extra special with a bottle of champagne and chocolates!... More

We now stay at the metropole every year having tried many of the other hotels. Being one of only 2 hotels that boasts a Swimming pool is a distinct advantage. A beautiful hotel with some lovely features.
