Likes: staff friendliness and willingness to help (e.g barman on Thursday night swapped nuts for crisps when we said we didn't like wasabi without asking, Easter egg, etc.). Bed and chair quality in room plus little touches like water, coffee/tea quality, sweets, biscuits etc. Jam and marmalade at breakfast. Room style (did the best with size/shape of room). Some of...

My sisters and I booked Drakes as a birthday treat for our mum's 87th birthday. We did telephone the hotel prior to booking to inquire whether the hotel was suitable for someone with mobility problems. We booked the ground floor sea view room for her and the rest of the party had the attic room. There are no lifts but... More

We didn't stay at the hotel but we did book a table for dinner. All I can say was that this was one of the nicest meals I've ever had. I enjoy good food and this was absolutely delicious. My starter of quail was scrumptious and my partner enjoyed his gnocchi (which I felt could have been a little bigger... More

We have always thought that the Restaurant at Drakes is the best in the country so where else would we go to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary but this time we decided to also stay at Drakes as well & what a fantastic choice that was. The room was stunning & immaculate with fantastic views of the sea front, without... More

Stayed for one night in a ying yang sea view double. Great room with good view of the sea front . Room isn't the largest but adequate for 2 people for a night or two. Breakfast was very good and staff always helpfull and friendly .

Went here for 10 year anniversary in February, which is also Valentine weekend. Hotel is expensive and we booked the cheapest room- one without the sea view, but we were still impressed with the room. The in room bath was a lovely addition and it was scattered with petals too which was lovely! Bed was comfortable, and they made clever... More

Not a bad thing to say about this place! It is truly perfect. Arrived and was taken to our room by one of the members of staff - who was so friendly. Stayed in the ying yang sea view room, which had a magnificent view of the pier. There was a large bath tub facing the view and an extremely... More

We stayed for 3 nights in January 2012. My wife, born in Brighton thought it would be a good time to revisit some places she hadn't been since a small child. The hotel was exceptionally well located, right on the front, a front facing room is a must! The hotel is very easy to miss purely because it doesn't have... More

My partner and I stayed at drakes for a couple of night in a sea facing room. Staff were very helpful and attentive. The room itself was lovely and comfortable, the bed and bedding were AMASING and the bathtub was luxurious. We would definitely recommend the hotel and hope to visit again.

My partner and I stayed at Drakes for a couple of nights in the sea facing yin yang room. All staff were very helpful and attentive. The meal in the restaurant was superb and my partner was presented with a dessert treat for his birthday. Unfortunately there was a lot of disruption during our first night due to a burst... More
