4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Well it's a 3 star hotel and the room was basic with a pretty dreadful shower, a dribble really. Despite that the staff are fantastic. Very helpful and friendly. We stayed in a room on the 4th which needed a bit of tlc but the sea view was amazing. Breakfast was plentiful - an excellent traditional English breakfast. Would return... More

Superb position on the seafront. Staff welcoming and helpful. Room compact but clean and reasonably up to date. Buffet breakfast simple but sufficient. Reasonable value considering how overpriced most central Brighton hotels appear to be.

The hotel was in a great location. It was near to the beach, shops & clubs so we didn't have to walk too far. On the whole the staff were helpful & friendly; although I did witness one of the men on reception being quite rude & inpatient with a guest. The rooms are clean but you only get free... More

From the moment we arrived We felt welcomed by the friendly staff at reception. Even recomending a fish and chip resturant.

Great location right next to the beach and short walk to the train station. Clean rooms, mine was with the sea view. Good price comparing to other hotels around with breakfast included. Defiantly recommend this place for the location, price & high standard.

excellent view of the pier and clean spacious room. Great base for a trip to Brighton.Courteous staff and discounted parking if you use the NCP in Russell St. Breakfast was good and plentiful. The wife said the late night beach revellers kept her awake but a few lagers stopped me from hearing anything

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. Right on the seafront, and just a few minutes' walk from the pier! I have paid similar prices for a hotel way up near the train station before. As others have said, the staff here could not be friendlier and will bend over backwards for their guests. It is a budget hotel in all other senses but... More
