My Wife and I stayed here last week for two nights and it really is a lovely place to stay. The staff are terrific, the bar and bedrooms lovely and nicely appointed and nothing is too much trouble for them. We had a ground floor room because I have problems with stairs and it was delightful, with air conditioning, a... More

Me and my partner stayed on 24th July in room 404. The room itself was large yet felt cosy and warm, had all of the amenities you would expect for a room of this price if not more. One feature I did like was the Sky TV instead of your standard free view. If you climbed out of the window... More

We were treated to an overnight stay here, and an elaborate dinner which we had to simplify to fit our elderly appetites. Very nice room, though the 'city' view over back gardens and fire escapes was not inspiring. One or two design errors in the bathroom too - a mixer tap which could not be fully used because the hand... More

I stayed at Drakes with my boyfriend in early June. On arrival, we were greeted very pleasantly by staff at reception. It was a bit of a trek to our room as there is no lift but once we saw the room we forgot about all of that. We opted for a sea facing room with the stand alone bath... More

We stayed here on an extra nights top over, we had stayed for 2 nights at The Grand Brighton. Drakes happily booked us in on a last minute booking and couldn't of been more helpful. We shared the room at the top with our son, it was a little bit of a squeeze but fun all the same. The room... More
