The Oriental is a small, quirky, quaint place quite close to the sea. I had some trouble changing reservations through Expedia - through no fault of The Oriental's (Expedia came through after a few phone calls, too). I ended up contacting The Oriental directly and they were wonderful to work with. Breakfast (full English or porridge or fruit) is included... More

My girlfriend picked this B&B after reading good reviews online and I'm pleased to say they were right! The Oriental is well located just outside of Brighton city centre, probably a 5 minute walk and very close to the seafront. The staff are very friendly, even offering to move us to a lower floor because they noticed I'd injured my... More

A perfect overnight stay! From the second we walked through the door the service was brilliant. Jarvis was so helpful in giving us advice on where to go for dinner nearby and his recommendations were perfect! Our room was gorgeous and felt like complete luxury, breakfast in bed was the icing on the cake! We will definitely be back.

Excellent hotel, very quiet overnight which is usually difficult to find on Brighton seafront. The owner and staff couldn't have done more for us and our 2 spaniels. A must stay hotel if you want fab breakfasts, quiet lie ins and easy access to the beach

I always tend to look at the worst reviews whenever I read about somewhere to try to get the inside track, but have to say that this place really does tick all the boxes. There are lots of nice touches, you get a good nights sleep because the bed is comfortable, and the bathroom is very well appointed. There is... More

Very comfortable beds with memory foam mattresses and beautifully laundered white cotton bed linen and towels. Complimentary toiletries of... More

We just returned from a two night stay and loved this quirky little hotel. The staff were amazing, so friendly and informative. The room we had was beautiful, clean, airy, and I'm sure that the little sweets and chocolate bars left in the room (free of charge!), were the reason my hangover was pretty mild!! It's in a great location... More
