We spent three nights in this Guesthouse at the beginning of April and had a pleasant stay. Our room on the first floor was delightful, with lots of extra chocs and biscuits next to the tea/coffee making tray, a comfy bed as well as a settee and a large wall-mounted TV. The ensuite bathroom was small but quite well equipped.... More

Rolo the Frenchie and I returned to room 7 for two days of r&r. As usual we received a warm welcome -staff are attentive but not over the top. The breakfast was super and Rolo enjoyed his sausage. Can't fault the room either. Will definitely stay here when visiting brighton.

I extensively travel with both work and for pleasure - often staying at Hilton, Radisson and Marriott Hotels. I stayed at The Oriental in Brighton for 1 night whilst on business on 30th March. A lovely, perfectly placed boutique guest house/hotel, located within earshot of the ocean and a short walk from central shopping areas and The Lanes. My quirky... More

Myself and my other half had a night here booked for a Christmas present through Living Social. We had a bottle of prosecco on arrival, breakfast in bed and late check out as standard. The staff were so friendly and helpful and offered free refreshments on our arrival, the location is perfect with a 10 minute walk to the centre... More

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
