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...

Just got back from two nights here. Just our cup of tea with the decor. Fantastic staff. Had a sea view room with free standing bath infront of windows which was great, especially as the weather was lovely. Parking was okay, understandable to pay in such a built up and busy area. Over priced bar was the only let down.... More

A really nice hotel with stunning views and high service standards. Although the bar is really small the standards and choice of drinks is exceptionally high. Our room was lovely and the bed was probably the best bed in the world with lovely cotton sheets and great pillows!

Stayed here with my girlfriend upon a last minute visit to Brighton. Brilliant hotel with fantastic decor and ambience. Friendly, warm and welcoming staff. Nice little cocktail bar and brilliant location. Booked through an external booking app and they treated us the same as any other customer. The beds are very comfortable and the room maids do not hurry you... More

The hotel is on the main road and we had a front room.They do not have double glazing.At £275 a night it is very expensive for what it is.The to charge extra £10 breakfast and £12.50 for parking is taking the biscuit. Restaurant is good but rather "nouveau" and £125 with only 5 drinks is over the top for this... More

Without a doubt, one of the loveliest hotels I've had the good luck to find!. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The room was beautiful, the bed truly superb and the view overlooking the sea divine. We didn't try the food so can't speak for that, but the facilities in our room were marvellous....what a great shower!... and... More

We chose to stay at Drakes based on the Michelin recommended restaurant. While looking online we became aware of a fantastic value for money package including a two course meal within the restaurant as well as breakfast the following morning. The food is as impressive as some well established Michelin star restaurants in London and the a la carte menu... More

Exceptionally helpful and friendly staff at Drakes during our one night stay. Doubt we could have found a better hotel in Brighton - genuine, warm service and perfect facilities. Sea view room at great price. Top cocktail bar too! Nothing was too much of a problem. Accidentally left our phone at the reception and were in contact within minutes with... More

Dinner in the restaurant was the most delicious dinner we have ever eaten. The staff could not be nicer and more helpful. A fantastic up market hotel without... More
