An old tired hotel, breakfast was never ready at the opening time, after waiting 20 mins for a cup of tea, the food was poor quality. Asking for a taxi was too much trouble for the staff. Would not return.

We stayed here for 1 Friday night, we booked a sea view in a double, privilege room. It was Friday rush hour traffic, parking was limited so then we had to find alternative parking. Check in was friendly but slow. When we finally got to the room it was a twin room, we ask reception they just sent someone up... More

I booked this hotel through the 'Hotelstonight' app and I have to say the service through them was excellent! I got a good deal for the hotel and was given their most basic double room - which looked ample when I checked on the hotels web-site. Lets begin with the good points: - The hotels location is absolutely excellent, right... More

We stayed here on a weekend deal and upgraded to one of the sea view privilege rooms. Firstly, the good - room was nice and spacious, we were on the 4th floor, so stunning views over the front and the old pier. Didn't find the room noisy at all. Staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. Wifi was free and... More

We went on a last minute two night stay at this hotel in October, so late booking meant a great price. The staff were warm and welcoming. Our room was a long way from reception and was accessed by a little individual stair case, quirky but as my mother had mobility issues it would have been nice to have been... More

Good position – along with a string of other hotels – right on Kings Road, overlooking the seafront and what’s left of the old West Pier, now just a fragile skeleton of what was once the Pavilion at the south end. The hotel is one of those rambling old Victorian buildings with a rabbit warren of corridors and staircases that... More

If you are looking for a 4 star hotel in Brighton avoid the Mercure Brighton Seafront; I expect it would be 3 star if rated now. The location is good, the staff were fine and parts of the building are very smart. Our room was clean, tidy and comfortable, but quite dimly lit with dirty sash windows looking out into... More
