My partner and I have stayed here twice now. A small but perfectly formed boutique hotel right on the beachfront with funky rooms and great cocktails but what makes this place great is the friendly and efficient service. There is a fantastic woman (whose name I can't remember!) whom I'm guessing is the manager and during both of our stays... More

Spent Saturday at Drakes in Brighton, and I from the minute we arrived to the minute we left, we received great service and a very personal service which smaller boutique can offer. We booked last minute and only had the option to book the Attic City View Room, and it was a loft, but very spacious and cosy room with... More

We picked this hotel at random and were not disappointed. An amazing little find in the heart of Brighton within walking distance of the Lanes and literally a stone throw from the Beach. The staff were faultless and extremely helpful. We stayed on the 4th floor which got the lungs working well but it was worth it for the enormous... More

Occasionally, once in a blue moon, you stay somewhere it is more-or-less impossible to pick fault with. I booked a room with Drakes to celebrate my tenth wedding anniversary, which given that my wife and I got married in the southern hemisphere takes place in the absolute dead of winter here in the UK. A bit strapped for cash, but... More

Lovely, friendly welcome from a young lady. Quite a few stairs to climb to our room. Wonderful view overlooking the sea and the wheel and pier. Lovely wooden shutters to the room. Beatifully designed bed area and the free standing bath in the room was very novel. Tea/coffee making euqipment all provided. An easy walking distance into Brighton town centre.... More

This hotel is breath taking from the moment you walk in. We had a stunning bedroom with a spiral staircase leading down to a very modern bathroom. Defo stay here again. Perfect location and parking right out the front of the hotel

We booked the circular king size sea facing room at Drakes for a pre Christmas break. The room was £225 + £12:50 parking. Breakfast is £16 pp extra. Paying top,if not eye watering prices,we expected a boutique if not a 5 * Hotel experience. Our room had the feeling of being unoccupied for some considerable time, damp and very very... More

Lovely friendly staff at this small seafront hotel and an excellent meal! I called to book the restaurant and a room and unfortunately the super popular restaurant was fully booked. The receptionist offered a room booking and first call for any restaurant cancellations but as it was last minute I declined. Fifteen minutes later the receptionist called back (apologising for...
