Stayed a long week-end with the wife in a "standard" double room with memory foam mattress, walk-in shower TV/DVD. Good storage space, but room a little tired with a broken toilet seat and sticking tap in sink. Excellent staff and superb breakfast. No parking with room but good indications from owners of parking sites nearby. Would recommend to stay here... More

The staff were friendly and attentive and always there to help. The room (we chose the superior suite) was beautiful, and the extra food goodies and toiletries made it feel that... More

We've just returned from a weekend away here for my boyfriends birthday and we really enjoyed ourselves. The owners were really friendly and welcoming, however they did seem a bit lost when we arrived (however it was a very busy weekend for them so I think they'd just been rushed off their feet all morning). We were shown to our... More

First proper visit to Brighton was made even better by this lovely hotel. Very cosy, rooms are nice and clean. The staff are absolutely delightful, too! And the breakfast...oh, the breakfast!! Would highly recommend for couples or single visits alike. Definitely coming back.

We spent three nights in this Guesthouse at the beginning of April and had a pleasant stay. Our room on the first floor was delightful, with lots of extra chocs and biscuits next to the tea/coffee making tray, a comfy bed as well as a settee and a large wall-mounted TV. The ensuite bathroom was small but quite well equipped.... More

Rolo the Frenchie and I returned to room 7 for two days of r&r. As usual we received a warm welcome -staff are attentive but not over the top. The breakfast was super and Rolo enjoyed his sausage. Can't fault the room either. Will definitely stay here when visiting brighton.

I extensively travel with both work and for pleasure - often staying at Hilton, Radisson and Marriott Hotels. I stayed at The Oriental in Brighton for 1 night whilst on business on 30th March. A lovely, perfectly placed boutique guest house/hotel, located within earshot of the ocean and a short walk from central shopping areas and The Lanes. My quirky... More
