Stayed for two nights over the bank holiday weekend for the Mod weekender. Right from booking, earlier in the year, communication was very friendly and efficient. Good advice about car parking too, at a nearby secure park. I was in room 2, a single room. It was small but perfectly formed! Clean and nicely decorated with some lovely touches like... More

Room at the top of the property was a lot of stairs to say the least but was definitely worth it. It is a little haven with big windows and a lovely shower. The day staff and morning staff were both extremely friendly and helpful, actually caring about your needs rather than behaving as if they are only there to... More

We cannot rave about this hotel enough it's absolutely fantastic. The owners and the staff do everything they possibly can to help you feel at home and pampered. We had their lovely breakfasts in bed nearly every day and they are very generous and tasty. Our room is lovely as are all the facilities. We went out a couple of... More

Before we even got there I liked this place! Once I had booked I got a couple of emails with loads of helpful local info. When we arrived we were immediately made very welcome. Our L shaped twin room was at the back of the house, and didn't have great views (not an issue at all as far as I'm... More

We booked for 2 nights over Brighton Pride. After a fair bit of searching, we found The Oriental which had great reviews and was decently priced (unlike the remaining over-priced available alternatives). The good: the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. There’s free wifi and also free coffee/tea/juice/water from the bar on the main floor. The building is well kept... More

I recently booked a trip for my boyfriend's birthday to The Oriental, and we were very impressed. We booked a large room which was very spacious with a lovely bathroom. The hosts Jasper and Lola were great and even gave us a recommendation to one of the best restaurants I have eaten in, Cassalingo. The Oriental is in a great... More

Stayed here for three nights visiting locally for a wedding. Helpful and friendly staff and located just 2mins from the beach. We stayed in a room with en suite on the very top floor, no lifts but the reception staff kindly carried our cases upstairs and the building has many charms that you soon forget this slight inconvenience. Breakfast was... More

Stayed for 4 nights with husband and baby. I suspect they don't have babies to stay that often (and there are a lot of stairs to climb with a little one!) but they simply could not do enough to make our stay comfortable; including getting special breakfast items and warning us when the weather was due to do something unexpected...
