The Drakes Hotel has been converted from two Regency houses, overlooking the seafront close to the pier. The conversion is generally contemporary in style, though the staircase has retained its character. (There is no passenger lift.) Our room was in what had obviously been a large room of the original house, but had been split in two in an interesting,... More

We stayed for my birthday and it was fantastic from beginning to end. OK, staying on the top floor does mean you have to climb several flights of stairs, so wouldn't be for everyone but ok for us. The room wasn't huge but brilliantly laid out, with a bath overlooking the sea view, an excellent wet room and a truly... More

We stayed here for three nights, in a double yin yang room, overlooking the beach, on the third floor. The hotel is in a fabulous location, the staff were all excellent and very friendly, and yes, the romm had some nice touches. For a romantic night away for a young couple it would be perfect. But beyond that, it really... More

We stayed here with our 5mth old baby for valentines day, the hotel itself is in a perfect location with amazing views if you go for a seaview room. However we were really disappointed with our room, it was minuscule and with a baby there was just no where to put anything, I cant stress how small it was with... More

This is how every bank holiday weekend away should be spent. I arrived not sure what to expect, I departed wondering when I would next be returning. This place is fantastic and deserves an equally fantastic review. I cannot praise or recommend enough not only the hotel, it's intriguing rooms, it's wonderful décor and prime location, it's dazzling restaurant and... More

Stayed here for 1 night, while attending a dinner party in Brighton. Stayed in the Yin-Yang double. Good view of pier. Bed very comfy with good linen. Bath in room. Plenty of towels. Staff very friendly and parking outside on the front of the hotel for a small extra charge. Some things to be aware of....we were on the third... More

I stayed here with my partner between Christmas and new year on a DBB package. We stayed in the king size circular sea facing room, with the bath in it. Great service from start to finish, excellent food for both dinner and breakfast. I needed gluten free which was no trouble at all, I'd say the dinner was as good... More

We visited in February and at first glance the room was lovely. However I must say that I was puzzled why in such a small room you would have a massive free standing bath. The shower and loo were so small and on using the the shower everything gets soaking wet even the toilet paper so when you go in... More

We booked the circular sea facing kingsize room with special chefs menu in the restaurant. Everything about this Hotel and restaurant was perfect. From the staff, the service, the stunning sea facing room with free sanding bath beneath the window offering views of Brighton Pier and beach, the wet room, the incredibly comfortable bed, the restaurant where we enjoyed 7...
