My partner booked this hotel for three nights for my 50th Birthday in the middle of August. The hotel cost us £100 per night..... I can't comment if this is a good price or not as it was the height of summer and the hotel appeared to be fully booked for the whole of our stay. First the plus points... More

We stayed for 4 nights at The Square and Chris and Joanna were very welcoming. Our room was compact, but well presented and stylish. The hotel is in a great location too. We couldn't have asked for better service. We had a (very) minor problem which we reported to Joanna (only for her information) and we were absolutely delighted when... 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

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

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
