Oh we love it here... A few years ago when our relationship was just gettting off the ground we visited Drakes and stayed in a city facing attic room. It was secluded, peaceful, sophisticated and felt pretty damn special from start to finish. Question is was that because of a burgeoning love affair or was the hotel actually that good?... More

Excellent... Great location - convenient for walk-abouts to most of the central areas of Brighton - The Lanes, Pavilion, Museums, Shopping, Restaurants etc etc. Staff very attentive... just right..... Room was great with a fabulous sea view - stairs could be a problem for some though.....

I stayed here with my boyfriend in september last year for our anniversary. Drakes is a boutique hotel offering great central location opposite the pier. Rooms seem expensive, toilet novel- no privacy. Little niggle was that carpets were frayed- but overall experience was good.

Brighton has been on my 'shorttrip' list for a long time! And since a friend of mine kept on telling me about Drakes of Brighton, I decided to have a 'look' for myself... From the moment of reservation by phone (great service!) until the time I left it has been a wonderful experience! The room is elegantly decorated with beautifyl... More

It is always a pleasure to enter Drakes of Brighton and to stay at this welcoming and atmosphere-ish hotel. I discovered Drakes via Internet, after I met the PR manager, Ms. Carla Termaat. Her enthousiastic way of telling about Drakes was enough to 'give it a try'. The staf at Drakes are all friendly and very helpfull. Another speciality is... More

Drakes was beautiful from start to finish. The staff of this tiny hotel were very friendly and laid back - not pretentious at all. The room was beautiful, immaculate with great facilities. The bed was very comfy and the wet room was top! Not to mention the bath... I could have stayed in it all day! The fluffy dressing gowns... More

We wanted a weekend of luxury and self indulgence away from everyday family life. We found it. From arrival to departure every aspect of our break could not have been improved upon. The staff were attentive yet not intrusive. The accomodation luxurious but not uncomfortable. The restaurant was was one of the finest we have experienced. The bar provided an... More

Drake's Hotel is a real home from home - well, it would be if only my home was quite that sylish. I booked a single sea view room expecting small but perfectly formed; in fact Ying Yang Single would happily take a friendly couple. And that's the thing about Drake's, there is a certain frission. It isn't clinically stylish it's... More

Ive just returned from a 2 night stay at Drakes in Brighton and loved every second of my stay there! The room was stylish and overlooked Brighton beach - it was very relaxing to lay in the free standing bath and look out! The room also had a flat screen TV and a cool, modern looking bathroom. Food served at... More

This is our second time back to Drakes in 4 months.... we absolutely love it!! The staff are so friendly and the rooms are fabulous. For this visit we booked the Circular Sea-Facing room; with kingsize bed, floor to ceiling windows and a free-standing bath overlooking the sea who could ask for any better? We are already looking into coming... More
