Gullivers is a budget hotel and it's important to take this into account. The night before my stay I stayed in the Hilton Metropole. However, I can honestly say, Gullivers represents far greater value at a 10th of the price, and that's something to be proud of. It's in a great location. I could (just about) see the sea from...

I visited Brighton with my family and we booked a twin room and a double. The location is excellent in Kemp Town close to the beach and lots of good pubs and restaurants. The rooms were clean but our twin was really drab and small. The beds were really soft and tiny and there was noise from the street all... More

I had to make a last minute booking for business trip two weeks ago and in comparison to what else I found on the internet they where the best priced. It was only for one night so I was not too concerned about finding the "Perfect Place" so to speak. Anyway I was nicely surprised, the building itself is and... More

Dear Mick W, Thank you for choosing the Gulliver's Hotel and we are so delighted to have been able to pleasantly surprise you. Indeed we are a quaint little guest house, whose ambitions are much bigger than our beautiful Regency building would suggest. We are very happy therefore that our hard work is paying off. We hope to see you... More

Stayed here for our anniversary but for some reason the wife decided on bringing the boy. Random. Anyway the hotel put an extra pull out bed in for him and he loved it. Our beds were comfy enough. Bathroom was petite but functional and the room felt clean and well stocked. The only let down was the top-hat-wearing wino and... More

I read the reviews for this hotel before i went. I felt like i was at a different hotel. I know that each room is different, I didn't sample the food and people have different wishes but I can only review my experience and my three night stay was superb!

Comfortable enough and good location close to the Brighton beach . But toilet is too small for comfort: nearly got scalded trying to adjust the temperature level of the shower in the small shower enclosure . Not advisable for a big Caucasian tourists .

Clean rooms but could do with some loving attention! The bathrooms are small (especially the shower). Nice location and helpful staff. This is my third stay here because it suits the job perfectly if you just want a clean place to sleep for the night.

I found my room in this Hotel to be more spacious than other Brighton establishments, though the bathroom could be bigger. The room amenities included Iron, kettle, and the hospitality tray of Tea-bags and coffee sachets along with welcoming shortbread packet. The breakfast was complimentary but needed to have it at the adjacent New Steine Hotel. It had all regular... More
