I cannot recommend this hotel enough. If you are looking for a luxury night away with a partner then it is perfect. The rooms are beautifully decorated and modern. The room was extremely tidy and had everything you could hope for. We stayed in the city facing attic room and although it was an attic room it was extremely spacious... More

Review of Drakes Hotel 11 July 2014 10:16 We stayed here for a special evening involving guest chef, Craig Jones, who was cooking up a 4-course Caribbean meal with wine pairings, rum and rum punches and working alongside regular chef, Andy MacKenzie. In such a small kitchen the chefs and staff cooked up a storm and we all had a... More

Service in the 'One of the best bars in Brighton' was poor. Felt like we were intruding. Tried to strike up conversation with bar tender but he was busy fettling. The room itself was very nice, clean and comfy. The city view bijou room was a view of the ducts/air conditioning units - ghastly. Location of hotel was lovely. Right... More

Outstanding boutique hotel. From the warmth of reception, to the attention to requests, to the cool of the rooms and the comfort of the bed rests. If you want a lovely getaway for a couple or even a young family (we were with toddler), this hostelry is an absolute delight. The only issue was at breakfast where the junior staff... More

We had a wonderful night at Drakes. We stayed in a room on the top floor (no lift but good exercise!). The room was nice, albeit small and the bed was very comfortable. Loved that the bathroom had a tiny blue light to lead the way in the dark. The best part about this room was that you were able... More

The room was very nice. We were told it had one of THE bars of Brighton. Well, there is a bar but the staff will not interact and it leaves you in a cold atmosphere, almost like you are disturbing them. Food wise, I will not pay £10 for a small bowl of porridge! Other than that, I can't comment... More

Enjoyed two amazing stays here. Staff very friendly and attentive. Luxury rooms especially top sea front facing room, magical. Breakfast was tasty and can be delivered to the room. Food excellent. You can also get deals for booking the restaurant and room, worth trying.

We told Drakes we were coming to Brighton to celebrate our wedding Anniversary, and on arrival we were warmly welcomed. We were taken to our sea-facing room on the 3rd floor which had fantastic views of the beach and pier etc. The staff had also left us a fabulous bouquet of flowers and a card to say "Happy Anniversary" which...

This hotel is very cute and the staff were friendly and helpful, but I expected so much more for the price I paid. Yes, it is a cool and modern design and there are the extra little touches, but whilst I expected my room to be small; with the furniture and bathtub in place, there really wasn't room to swing...

We spent the night at Drakes - a modern boutique hotel in the old style beachfront - and wish we could have stayed longer. Worth spending the extra to have a front deluxe room with a view over the beachfront and pier. The bath has pride of place against the front bay windows of the room and although minimal in... More
