Our room was very comfortable with a lovely shower. Great location! Did not eat at the hotel but would stay again even though it is more expensive than... More

I chose this hotel through Tripadvisor and stayed for two nights in the smallest room in the house which more than met my needs and had a sea view. I dined twice in the restaurant which must surely be the best restaurant in Brighton. Everything about my accommodation, the staff and the service was excellent and I had a business... More

The sunsets are to die for :-) I loved their sea facing yin yang single & double rooms. These beauties are called ''yin... More

We came down for a couple of nights and stayed in the Seaview Attic room. The welcome was fabulous and the hotel looked stunning, the views from the balcony was spectacular and you can't beat watching the sea. I can't compliment the staff more highly, the attentive manner of the service was superb, we ordered champagne to share in our... More

Very impressed with this hotel, in particular our room, 301! A shame to see someone who stayed the same time as us, were not happy with the cleanliness as our room was so clean; there is not one fault we could pick out. My partner was very impressed as I booked as a surprise for his birthday. A personalised hand... More
