We had a fantastic mid week two night break at this lovely hotel. We booked on the phone last minute and the lovely Kate couldn't do enough to accommodate us during a very busy half term. Thanks to some creative thinking (on her part!) they came up with two rooms for us, one on each night, both with great sea... More

What a lovely stay we had. Me and my partner stayed overnight and caught a last minute deal. I can say we were not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and showed us to our room and where everything was. The hotel was spotless! The bed was soooo comfortable and the breakfast was outstanding. Best hotel in Brighton by far!... More

Having gone to Drakes for an over night stay I was impressed. I'm yet to find another hotel like it in Brighton and highly recommend this to any couple. You have a gorgeous view of the sea...stunning. Must stay hotel if you go to Brighton.

My wife and I had a mid week break at Drakes. Check in was easy and friendly. A lovely cocktail before a fabulous dinner. Perhaps the best cooked breakfast around. Great staff, fantastic rooms and a great location.

Went for a two night stay, we have stayed at drakes before and liked it, but the rooms upstairs are less noisy, room good and clean with comfy beds, bar area small but very nice with a sea view, if you don't forget they charge parking separately , overall a very nice stay and would visit again,

Super hotel right on the seafront with wonderful views. The rooms are very comfortable and the hotel is in the perfect position to explore this wonderful city. Will be back next time we are in Brighton. It even has some parking. Very rare around this town!

We've had such a good stay in this lovely boutique hotel. We had a 2 night stay over a weekend. The first night we stayed in a Bijoux room. It had a freestanding bath in the bedroom & toilet/shower room too. The room did feel quite small but it was fine for an overnight stay & had everything we needed.... More

Glorious from start to end. All dishes were beautifully presented . Small but carefully chosen menu with some favourites and some some more daring choices. Never eaten pigs cheek before- sublime! Loved the Brecon gin and the cheese board had an interesting variety of cheeses.

This is a great little hotel. We couldn't fault it. Our room was nice with a great view of the pier. The staff were lovely. We didn't eat in the restaurant but had breakfast which was good and perfectly made cocktails in the bar. Room was clean. Loved the freestanding bath. Wifi was fast and reliable. We would definitely stay... More
