We stayed a drakes in June 2015 and had an amazing time. We stayed in one of the attic rooms and I was grateful for the amazing air conditioning as the weather was so hot during our stay and I was 20 weeks pregnant at the time. This did make the stairs to our room a little hard going but... More

We stayed at the Drakes in one of the attic rooms. The hotel was lovely and all the staff so friendly. We stayed for dinner too and had a fantastic meal. The bar was cosy and the breakfast very nice. A lovely touch was the homemade jam and marmalade. Our room was really comfortable, a nice lot of pillows, comfy... More

With a wonderful views of the sea and pier the hotel is minutes walk from all Brighton has to offer and is well services with a number of parking spaces, a rare commodity. Our room had a sea view, a decent double bed with excellent pillows. Single glazed Windows which didn't help with condensation as it was pouring with rain... More

Great location far from the car parks and heavy traffic of centre. Short walk to all attractions. Possibly overpriced as what they call Yin yang rooms are compact as for two slender short guests only. Lovely views though. Service good. Wifi bit iffy. Did not try food as prefer to go off piste.

We've just checked out of the drake hotel and can't wait to go back in the summer. The rooms are exceptional, the service was first class (thank you for everything Steph) and the restaurant lived up to its amazing reputation. Having stayed in quality hotels around the world I would easily say that this is at the top of the... More

This is a great hotel. I booked one of the feature rooms for a friend who was having a special birthday and a seafacing room for myself. The rooms are spotless, comfortable and well equipped. The view of the sea and Brighton Pier is fantastic. My friend was overwhelmed by the loveliness of the room, and loved the champagne and... More

Our stay at Drake was awesome. As well as having fantastic room, and the ease of ordering flowers on arrival, the friendliness and helpfulness of the team made the stay something very memorable. Some key highlights include the great hotel bar and the turn down service both of which I was not expecting and were very nice additions that raised... More

This hotel is everything I expected and more! Rooms were fantastic, loads of space, added extras, and of course the amazing bath with a sea view! Staff were fantastic, very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Added extras such as free newspaper to your room, and breakfast delivered to your room made it an extra special stay. The decor... More

A lovely hotel with a spectacular view of the sea. The rooms are small but beautiful. The staff is outstanding and helped us with restaurant reservations. It's in a good location for a short walk to the "lanes" and shopping. They have quaint restaurant and a nice lobby bar.

We stayed here in one of the attic rooms with a sea view, on a wintry night in January. What a lovely place. The view of the pier whilst lying in the deep, roll top bath, full of complimentary White Company goodies, is luxurious! The rooms are quite hot but that's easily resolved, turn the thermostat down! Staff were very... More
