Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. They upgraded us free of charge! Room was comfortable with all essential items, very good for money we paid. We slept well, although could hear people when nightclubs closed. Fantastic location and lovely sea view. Parking charge for NCP is discounted by hotel from £25 to £15 for 24hrs. Lovely place and lovely... More

The Umi is not the flashest hotel in Brighton but you will never find better value for money in this town. I have stayed here twice and both times they have upgraded me to a seafront room, I paid a fraction of what people in the neighbouring hotels have paid. The breakfast is quite standard but at £5 in Brighton... More

I stayed here for 3 nights whilst at a conference. Can honestly say I had a lovely time, beautiful rooms, clean, comfortable, wonderful views of the sea from the room I was in.

Good room over looking the sea but pricey at £140 a night - think the key with this hotel is to book ahead direct for a better price. The staff here are excellent friendly helpful and chatty. No noise at all in room (third floor). Breakfast rather average in quality but the room you have breakfast in is so kitsch... More

I had read a few reviews of this hotel before we arrived so I was fairly confident that we would be pleased and thankfully this hotel did not disappoint. It was in a good location on Brighton's seafront but was still near enough to the amenities like the train station and The Brighton Centre. We were thinking it would be... More

I was in Brighton for 5 nights for work. The room was spacious and had everything you'd expect of a hotel, Shower had great water pressure and the bed was huge! and comfortable. The hair dryer was quite dated and the 'air-con' was a ceiling fan, the TV was very far away from the bed which made it difficult to... More

Dear Guest Thank you for your review, which is much appreciated. Having air con in English hotels is by no means the norm, however 50% of our rooms do have full air conditioning units and the remaining 50% are supplied with ceiling fans. We have realised through guest feed back we do have a handful of rooms that are so... More

Ok. I will start with what I was not pleased about regarding this hotel which I promise isn't too much. Firstly the window in my room had an off-putting stain on it which I thought could have more than easily been removed (not that it mattered too much as I didn't have a view). Secondly the telephone was giving trouble... More
