We stayed for a weekend in June 2015. We booked on the phone having looked at the hotel on line. What a disappointment! Pokey room at the top of four flights of stairs, very poor tired decor with the promised sea view being largely one of a wall. The chest of drawers looked like something out of a charity shop...

We stayed only for one night unfortunately. The room was a great an clean with a see view balcony looking all over the pier. Close to everything in short walkable distances. Parking available on request with reasonable price. Very helpfull staff especially Norris who has been above and beyond us. I would stay again with them for sure.

We enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable night at the Drakes. The service is first class, very personal and efficient. The restaurant is top notch, the location ideal and the views stunning. I couldn't recommend the Drakes highly enough, we'll definitely be back.

I had the pleasure of a one night stay in Drakes last week. The check in was quick although it is done at the bar which doesn't give a great first impression. The room however was great. Up on the fourth floor it was a steep and narrow climb - but good for getting fit! Inside the room the furnishings... More

Stayed here on business recently and it is a lovely hotel. An amazing old building with loads of character. The bar serves an array of beers and the food in the restaurant was excellent. If are visiting Brighton then would recommend.

This was the second time we had visited Drakes' bar after hearing about it from friends. The cocktails are amazing, and the bar staff were fantastic. Well worth a visit to see how a cocktail should really be made. The barman also made my partner a drink at his request that wasn't listed on the menu which made his day.... More

What an amazing hotel, great rooms and great staff! The restaurant in the basement is out of this world. Tried some new foods which I'd never dared to try before. Would highly recommend. Can't wait to go back to try the 'feature' room. Great value for money

My wife and I stayed here for three nights during our wedding weekend on the 16th May 2015. This was the perfect start to our Honeymoon in California. The room was perfect with a bath in the room over looking the pier. I was born in Brighton so it brought back great memories of many happy days on the seafront... More

The hotel and restaurant are both excellent. We had a ground fo floor room with a sea view , excellent value. Our meal was beautifully prepared and the restaurant deserves its rosettes. Staff were very helpful in both the hotel and restaurant. We got there early afternoon so had no problem parking. Late arrivals might have a problem as parking... More
