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...

Stayed here with my boyfriend for a couple of nights so I could show him the wonders of Brighton, as I went to university there. I chose The Oriental after reading the amazing reviews from other customers and wow were they spot on! We booked the suite on the top floor and it was lovely and so cosy. When we... More

I found the hotel on trivago and was impressed with the reviews so decided to book it for mine and my girlfriends holiday to Brighton for our one year together! One of the best decisions I've made all year! I asked the hotel to put some roses in the room for my girlfriend and they were lovely! The hotel also... More

Ideally located within short range from the city centre and the beach. The owners and the staff are really helpful and friendly (Great recommendation's for dinner). Parking space within walking distance must be pre-arranged. Nice breakfast with a choice between full English and organic. The room was a little small but it is all right for sleeping.

We had a very enjoyable two night stay at the Oriental. The service is why I would go back they really seem to care and take an interest in your time and making the best of it. The bedroom was very comfortable and my only slight complaint with is totally out of control of the Oriental was the noise from... More

We stayed in The Oriental for a night, the staff were nothing but friendly and helpful & gave us advice on restaurants and parking which turned out to be better than we expected. The room was lovely and clean, with everything you needed in there and the breakfast room, along with the breakfast itself was brilliant. Would highly recommend &... More

Lovely room, great breakfast – and, above all, such welcoming and friendly staff, who were genuinely interested their guests and went out of their way to make conversation. We will certainly be considering The Oriental again for future return visits to Brighton.

Recently had four nights at the Oriental whilst at a nearby conference, and I had a fantastic stay. The Oriental is just a stones throw from the beach, and is ideally placed for shops and and attractions, with plenty of good food establishments nearby. On arrival there was a friendly welcome from Scarlet, who checked me in, with complementary coffee... More

a 2 night stay at The Oriental staff were ideal, informative and very helpful. The breakfast was nice and also catered for soya users in both milk and yogurt. All in all would recommend The Oriental and the choice of breakfast in bed or a bottle of red wine on our anniversary was a sweet thought
