Great price, for a great hotel. Staff are some of the best i have known, more than happy to help and advise and very knowledgeable on their surroundings. Lovely quirky quaint rooms and an amazing breakfast that fills you up for the day. Do take time to enjoy the serenity of their bar area and the wonderful cocktails. This was... More

The Oriental is in walking distance of most places in Brighton and yet perfectly nestled away in a quiet little corner just off the sea front. Our room was small but comfortable, with a strong hot adjoining drop down shower. The bed was comfortable enough to spend the entire weekend in, with baskets of sugary treats scattered around for that... More

This was the perfect mid week break for us. The staff were friendly and helpful and our room was great. Ideally situated so we could explore Brighton from a great central location. Will def be staying again.

We were in Brighton for one night, and chose this quirky little B & B based on the Tripadvisor comments. Whilst it was a hike up to the top floor, the room was lovely and clean. It was great to see high end toiletries. The little extras of sweets, crisps etc is a lovely touch. We were greeted by Jarvis,... More

I am so pleased we came across this lovely hotel, which I'll be recommending to friends and booking again should we ever need a place to stay in Brighton. It is the perfect hotel for a romantic break, but would be equally ideal for anyone looking for a reasonably priced hotel room in the centre of Brighton. It provided a... More

I just needed a room for the night to attend a funeral and this place had good reviews and the price was reasonable. It was also a few minutes walk from the secure Regency Square car park and as parking in Brighton can be a problem that was useful. Jarvis, a proprietor was genuinely friendly and helpful and I immediately... More

Amazing friendly welcome, lovely guest house. I had a single room, which was very nice and comfortable, with nice little extra touches. Well maintained and very clean. I will stay there again if I go to Brighton in the future.

My wife and I recently stayed at The Oriental Hotel which we selected largely based upon positive reviews in Tripadvisor, and we were not disappointed. The hotel is located in a quiet road directly off the seafront and has been beautifully converted from an old multi floor terraced house. The staff are really welcoming and very, very helpful. The rooms... More

Had a great stay in this little place which is smoothly run and very friendly. Lots of extra little touches and high standards of decor and cleanliness. Lola the manager was friendly, professional, kind and efficient. Happy to advise any one who had not been to Brighton before. Great complimentary tea and cake after a busy day in town, and... More

We stayed in room no. 6, and I can't fault this place. They were very welcoming, and allowed us to drop our bags off before check-in so that we could explore Brighton whilst we waited. Lola, one of the proprietors, was very helpful, and pointed out places to visit. On checking in, we found the room to be extremely clean... More
