Brighton can be a nightmare to get to for the business traveller and finding suitable hotels can be a minefield. Trust me, I know. How I missed this place up to now is a mystery. This is a warm, friendly, comfortable hotel with FREE PARKING. The restaurant and food is very good but if you want to eat out you... More

Just came back from a stay at the Seattle and could not be happier. The room we had (240) had a cosy little balcony with views over the marina.We arrived a bit early and as the room was ready the receptionist let us check in (thanks again) The room itself was clean and spacious. Had a few drinks in the... More

Having the good fortune to be in Brighton on a gorgeous day we stumbled upon the Seattle Hotel that has a magnificent location at Marine Village with rooms overlooking the harbor. it is away from the main tourist area and is quiet and peaceful. It has an austere exterior, but inside is bright, cheerful and most enjoyable. There are several... More

We celebrated our anniversary in Brighton and decided to stay at the Marina this time, why well for a change and FREE PARKING! (Brighton is on par with London for parking spaces and BTW avoid the NCP its as big a rip off as every where else in the UK!). Its a new and bright Hotel with spacious rooms and... More

Filthy mismanaged. Staff don't know how to clean a room. Toenail clippings and ash on bedside. tables. Corridors littered with empties and room service ditties all day. Staff just walk by them. Reception staff clueless. NEVER visit this hotel. See its no longer Alias but owned by New Light Hotels who have negative net worth of -£7m. They are running... More

Dear Mike Many thanks for taking the time to provide us with your review. I am little bit saddened as after talking with our Reception Manager Darcie and the reception team again after this, the matter had been resolved to your satisfaction. As you can see from the many other reviews cleanliness is not a typical issue within the hotel.... More

Last minute booking for a standard room £99 including breakfast. The big attraction was free parking close by. Hotels with parking are in short supply in Brighton. Accessing the hotel was made easy by reading reviews on Tripadvisor! The hotel was modern, clean and bright. My standard room was a good size, well-furnished with a comfortable bed. Two minor niggles... More

For £155 a night for a kingsize marina room I expected more. Im paying for the view so perhaps a chair to sit on, on the expensive balcony or even a clean balcony would be nice. The room was modern to look at but on closer inspection the bathroom was shoddy with cracks and dirt and was definitely edging towards... More

Just spent 2 lovely nights here. The accessible room was very pleasant. Plentiful handrails around the lavatory, and a lowered basin at a good height for a wheelchair user, as well as a basin at 'standard' height. The bath is not very accessible though and the shower is fixed over it, only one handrail in the bath. The hotel staff... More
