Great location. Exceptionally comfortable beds. Very friendly and helpful staff. Perfectly cooked breakfast. Fair price. What's not to like? I've slept in 3 of the rooms now. They're all very different but all have an individual charm. I don't get to Brighton often but when I do, this will certainly be my hotel of choice.

I decided to take my best friend on a short trip to Brighton. I chose the Oriental, what a great great pick. It was unfortunately hammering down as we walked from the Station, but when we arrived early to ask if we could leave our bags, we were invited to take a seat and have a complementary hot or cold...

Wonderful find on a last minute trip to Brighton to visit friends. Really quirky little place with wonderful warm welcome after a very long drive. Breakfast is served in the bar area and cooked to order, clearly cooked with high quality ingredients. Rooms are spotlessly clean and very large for this type of guesthouse. Highly recommended for a weekend trip... More

I stayed here just one night earlier this summer and can only say nice things! The staff were very friendly, the room was really lovely and I appreciated the small touches in the tea making tray. I was too disorganised to have breakfast so can't comment on that part unfortunately, but it was a lovely, comfortable (and ideally located) little... More

We stayed here for one night whilst attending a wedding. Great location 1 minute from the beach, but on a quiet side street. Centrally located to walk to / from the train station. Management were helpful prior to our arrival as we had asked for a potential early check-in. Staff upon arrival were efficient, welcoming and helpful. We were in... More

Lovely little hotel. Stayed here for the one night before a flight from London. Lola, Jarvis and co were fantastic! Very helpful and friendly. Superb cooked breakfast, room was great and had everything it needed including lovely little extras to go with teas and coffees and in the bathroom as well! Beautifully decorated. I would definitely recommend!!

Just returned home from a two night stay at the Oriental and cannot recommend it highly enough. It's located close enough to the seafront that everything is within walking distance yet just far enough to be nice and quiet at night. Our room was nice and clean with individual styling that gave it personality that you just don't get with... More

My partner and I stayed here for a few nights during July and it was very pleasant. The staff were warm and welcoming during our entire stay and booked taxis when we needed them. The room was great – ample space with a good shower and a comfy bed; all you need for a few nights stay! The breakfast (included... More

....a little gem of a hotel where you are really made to feel welcome. Spotless room - the only thing that didn't work was the aromatherapy dispenser, but that was a minor detail....plenty of hot water, a comfy bed, super-friendly management and excellent breakfast. Location also excellent.
