Such a nice place, Lola the owner was in attendance with a big friendly smile and Steve in reception was jolly and helpful, Luna the dog deserves a special mention. We (and our dog) were made very welcome. The place is well decorated and furnished and spotless. Well placed for visiting Brighton shopping - 5 minutes walk - and the... More

I booked this hotel as it seemed to be a very reasonably priced venue close to the centre of Brighton and near my business meeting the next morning. I was thoroughly unprepared for the delightfulness of the hotel, the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff, and the wonderful choice of restaurants just down the next street. When I arrived I...

Visiting friends in Brighton and stayed overnight at this delightful dog friendly hotel. Lola and her team were extremely helpful and welcoming. Good sized room, comfortable bed and a nice touch with the sweets treat basket. Plentiful selection of coffee and tea bags, rather than the usual two or three that get offered. Highly recommended.

We were looking for a dog friendly, centrally located hotel and this fitted the bill perfectly. The staff were incredibly helpful, nothing was too much trouble, Lola and her staff were fantastic. It was spotlessly clean and really tasty breakfast. We will definiatly be going back.

Found it very difficult to find this place in the dark as the outside has nothing notable to identify it other than a dark coloured sign in darkness! Our room was well laid out in 3 nicely distinct areas of bedroom, lounge and bathroom of good size. As fun as the massage bath was, it was a bit of a... More

Quite good. Rooms fairly basic, but nice. Staff really good and helpful. 100 yards to beach.Overnight parking at various locations in the area, best to pre book for best prices. Breakfast in bed was really good. Nice feel to the place.

I never relish more than a night away from home alone with work but my stay at the Oriental was like a home from home. It's a perfect mix between hotel and B&B. Everyone is so welcoming and you're made to feel like nothing is too much trouble. My room was a great size, spotlessly clean and so warm (despite... More

This is an interesting, quirky little hotel run by a very pleasant and helpful "arty" lady. The rooms are extremely well furnished, clean and warmly. There are many little extras such as an array of sweets, biscuits and snacks plus up-market toiletries and bottled water. It is so nice to feel that you are treated to these free items and... More

Stayed here overnight on business with my partner. Massive room, great shower, nice bedding & towels. Lots of little nick nacks in the room, including free treats. Plenty of tea/coffee choices. Breakfast was very tasty, though limited choice of the cooked options - my partner doesn't like smoked bacon or herb sausages - so opted for toast & jam which... More
