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

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

We stayed here for 2 nights between Christmas and New Year- we chose the hotel because it was dog friendly and near to my sister's house. However the hotel outdid itself on service, comfort etc. we had a very warm welcome from Jarvis (one of the owners) who enquires about our plans, made suggestions and generally made us feel very...
