Firstly service was great, Peter is an absolute top guy as is the manager, not so much the owner who sat in the corner of the bar surrounded by paperwork treating the TV like his own so if you didn't like Bloomberg or the news while you were relaxing you were doomed, he needs an office not the bar!

The hotel itself is a little tired and could do with a refresh but not so much as to impact on my stay The reception staff were efficient but not particularly friendly. My room was compact, dated but functional with a view of half completed building work Breakfast was ok but the chef was unable to cook eggs (fried or... More

We (a family of four) stayed here for four nights in April. Having been a little concerned by some of the previous reviews we need not have worried and had a very agreeable stay. The hotel is situated in a quiet, leafy area of Hove and within a five minute walk of the beach. We walked several times into the... More

We really appreciate this considered review. Hopefully your plans will allow you to visit again from London before too long As you say, the Courtlands strives to provide value for money and is very well located. We offer a full restaurant service and dependent upon the number of guests in the hotel, use either the Richmond Suite or our ground... More

We turned up at the Hotel and all looked well , we were given a room towards the back of the Hotel . The room was very clean but the decor of the room was very dated and lacked any kind of wow factor at all and was nothing like the pictures on their web site. At a £135 a... More

£125 for the room (without breakfast) daylight robbery. I stayed for one night in this hotel, following a stag day in Brighton. I was appalled at the condition of the room on arrival. Cobwebs in the corners, paint peeling off the windowsills, windows would not close properly & stained toilet. The room was in need of a complete refurb. I... More

This review is, I'm afraid, nonsense and the 'title' trite. The guest was under no obligation to stay and by his own admission did not raise his concerns so we were not given an opportunity of putting things right. Indeed had this gentleman been as unhappy as he is now suggesting, we would happily have recommended alternative accommodation. Furthermore we... More

The hotel hiked up its prices because of the marathon but nothing matched it. The staff were nice enough but that did not compensate for the room. The bath room was dirty and there wasn't even a proper shower. I thought gone were the day of holding the shower head with one hand and washing with the other. The room... More

We are sorry you found aspects of your stay challenging but please rest assured there was no "hike up" in our tariff. We set our rates in line with the local market which remains highly competitive and of course, weekends in the City are always popular and for good reason. The Courtlands enjoys a great location, super-fast complimentary guest WIFI... More

The Hotel really needs a refurb, it is very shabby for the price. The lady on reception in the afternoon was kind enough to change my room when I explained the one I was in was extremely noisy, I couldn't even read a book there was so much banging around outside. The second room was much quieter but then at... More

This review doesn't make any sense nor can we identify with the patron concerned. We would have made every effort to find another room had these further concerns been raised and absolutely there were no issues reported with the breakfast by other guests. Nor is there an issue in paying in advance - most hotels operate advanced purchase schemes, which... More

We stayed for three nights and got a really good deal. The first room we were given was fine but we discovered a problem with the shower and reported it on our way out next morning. When we returned we were told that the problem had not been solved so we were moved to another room. This room was fantastic.... More

The staff were lovely, very friendly and obliging. Unfortunately the hotel and our room was a bit grotty and run-down. Very old furniture, chipped radiators, taps, sinks, ripped material on the lampshades, curtains etc. Walls were paper thin and we were woken up at 7.30 by the people in the room next to us who were (very noisly) checking out...
