We were immediately greeted by a lovely young man, who very quickly took us down to the restaurant which is light, airy, clean and modern. Our table was beautifully laid, and we're offered water straight away. We were given a complimentary bread basket with exquisite brioche muffins with bacon and cheese, which was then followed by a complimentary appetiser which... More

I stayed here for a long weekend with my elderly parents and could not have stayed in a better place. The rooms were excellent as was the food and the staff simply couldn't do enough for us. I explained when I booked that my parents were in their 80's and from there on in the service was amazing - they... More

Second visit and I think it is resting on its laurels. Rooms still fabulous with huge wet room. Great bed. Nice cookies. No complimentary water, which is strange for a boutique hotel that costs £145 for one night. No fridge in room and no safe. We were also called ten minutes before check out to make sure we were leaving... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant a while back. Very classy place with a great atmosphere, friendly staff and fantastic food. A bit pricey but for a special occasion it's worth every penny. We started upstairs at the bar with cocktails, which were sublime and then were escorted downstairs for our fantastic meal, will be back for our next... More

2nd visit, and can't praise this hotel enough. Beautiful unique rooms, that calm you with the design. Wet rooms. Baths that are deep and big and overlooking the sea. Amazingly comfortable beds, with crisp cotton bedding. Cocktails served in our room. Staff couldn't do enough for us. If you visit Brighton, stay here. If you want romance, stay here. I... More

Really friendly service, especially the lovely guy at breakfast. Nothing too much trouble. Rooms vary. I gad quite a small one but it had a great sea view and super comfy bed with crisp white linens and fluffy duvet and pillows. There are 4 floors but no lift so request ground or first floor if you have trouble with stairs!... More

We very much enjoyed this small boutique hotel that faces the Channel in Brighton. From the moment we checked in the staff could not have been more accommodating. We arrived at mid-day for a 3-night stay. Our room wasn't ready for occupancy but the staff put us instead into a larger room (no extra charge) for that first night and... More

What can I say... My stay here was just devine! Paying for the double room with the bath in the center we were beyond pleased! The wet room was just beautiful, dark with blue lighting and the misty doors made it even more romantic. The staff were excellent, very cheery, chatting and suggesting dvds for us to lend to take...
