....a little gem of a hotel where you are really made to feel welcome. Spotless room - the only thing that didn't work was the aromatherapy dispenser, but that was a minor detail....plenty of hot water, a comfy bed, super-friendly management and excellent breakfast. Location also excellent.

We have been staying in hotels in Brighton for nearly 20 years it is the most special place.. Instead of staying in the larger seafront hotels we opted for this boutique hotel and I am so glad. It has changed our concept of seaside break! It was fantastic this quirky hotel is a must to anyone who would like a... More

Very welcoming and relaxing hotel. Quirky with great little touches like complimentary sweets iN the room add to the overall experience. Very helpful team, excellent breakfasts and very clean throughout. Thank you for a fantastic Brighton experience!

Was greeted by one of the owners, who was incredibly helpful and friendly, and recommended a curry house that turned out to be excellent. The hotel itself was spotlessly clean and well kept, and our large double room on the third floor was gorgeous and well worth braving the stairs :) Breakfast was good quality and plentiful also, we come...

I booked this hotel for an overnight getaway - and didn't want to stay in a chain hotel. The hotel is situated within walking distance of everything, barely more than a few steps from the seafront! The hotel is small and beautifully formed, our room was clean, quirky (loved the spa bath) and well appointed - snacks and water in... More

The welcome at the Oriental was warm and they couldn't do enough to make our stay a great one. The room was lovely, the complementary treats were the most generous we've ever experienced. The breakfast was brilliant and again the staff were excellent, you feel they really care that you have a good time both at the hotel and in... More

Brill place to stay. Really close to the beach and shopping areas. Just around the corner from the lion and lobster pub. Owner and staff really go out of their way to make your stay in Brighton as pleasurable as possible. Will definitely staff again.

Chose this hotel so that we could take our dog with us. The whole effect of the hotel is very pleasing, our room was on the first floor and was well equipped. Crisp white cotton sheets and a wooden floor. The room itself was quite snug and not much room for manoeuvre once we were all in, especially as our... More

We were looking for a great place to stay in Brighton for 3 mums on a well deserved girly weekend. It had to be close to the action but not too close, not a boring chain hotel, good rooms and a bit boutique and funky. The Oriental was all this and more. We stayed in their biggest room at the...
