We stayed for one night and found the Lanes Hotel very good. The hotel is located on the seafront and near the pier. The room was excellent, we couldn't fault it. It was spotless and very spacious. We were in a basement room so there was no view of any kind, but we did not mind because we got a... More

Staff tried to be helpful when the toilet didn't flush but didn't rectify the problem. In the morning, discovered that the bath and shower could not be used due to the on-going cold water problem! The owners response was sadly unimpressive - when I reported my concerns his response was ... 'that's the way it is'. Good position to walk... More

We recently booked a last minute weekend in Brighton. There was very limited availability on the search websites - tripadvisor, booking, lastminute etc as it was the weekend of London to Brighton. So after going on the Visit Brighton Website The Lanes Hotel came up. I phoned them directly. Not only did they have 2 rooms available, but they were... More

I have to admit that I really like this place. Never having been to Brighton, The Lanes was everything I was looking for in a nostalgic seaside hotel. It’s as if you stepped into a time warp and arrived at the seaside hotel in the 1950's or 1960's. I mean this in a good way! The rooms are clean and... More

Although we visited Brighton with no plans to overnight, we popped in the hotel and were convinced to. Although the normal rates are pretty high, probably due to low occupancy, they offered a fantastic rate for 3 people and in addition, we were allocated a room with 3 double beds and window overlooking the sea. The room was recently refurbished,... More

I'm a bit reluctant to write a review for this hotel, because I don't want other people to find it and book it up! We came with a hen do and got a lovely reception from staff on walking in. Great breakfast, great group rooms, with a real old fashioned seaside feel, with a walnut panelled breakfast room and smartly... More
