Great location, super friendly welcome - really liked Room 3 - cleverly designed, comfortably and stylishly furnished - great bathroom - excellent breakfast - would definitely stay here again. The hotel has a very pleasant aspect onto Steine Square; and is just around the corner from St James Street which is a great neighbourhood to explore and hang out on.... More

Just got back from a weekend staying at the Square in Brighton for a Friend's Hen do! Quite a few of the hens also stayed at the Square and we were all so impressed not only with the comfort and decor of the rooms but also at just how welcomed we were made to feel! Staff were absolutely fantastic- nothing... More

Bearing in mind that architecture limits a designers creativity, a very good job was done on this establishment. The venue is close to the beach, a stones throw from shops restaurants and amenities The Square Hotel was a nice place to stay. What is immediately apparent was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff but, minor grumbles... For a couple... More

Checked in here on a Thursday for a couple of nights to catch up with a friend. Greeted in a very friendly way at the door despite arriving early with my room being ready.

Great décor and smellies, and quiet despite the central location which we loved. My fiancé was working in Brighton and stayed here on and off for a month, I came to join him for the last night he was there. Super comfortable bed, quirky décor - we especially loved the S and M ducks! Will definitely come back next time... More

Beautifully decorated room, fab bathroom too! Stairs were a bit tricky after a few cocktails (we were on the fourth floor and there's no lift). Continental breakfast was served in the lovely bar area which we had all to ourselves. The room got quite warm in the afternoon and I can imagine that this might be a problem in the... More

Great location with very easy parking for Brighton!! We were greeted by a very courteous friendly member of staff. We'd booked the lower ground apartment which was tastefully furnished- Kitchen area great and living area and as for bed fantastically comfortable. A couple of minor issues with sliding toilet door and hand towel rail-we brought this to hotels staff attention... More

Easy parking just off the sea front and within very easy reach of the lanes. Excellent staff. We stayed in the basement apartment which is advertised as having a patio, which it does have to the front of the building but it's extremely small-one chair. Apartment is beautifully designed fantastic bath/shower. Bed was amazingly comfortable. Some questionable art work on... More

Visited here on a couples weekend away last year. Generally lovely place to stay, but needs a little bit of TLC to bring it up to scratch.
