After reading the reviews on trip advisor I was a bit unsure of what to expect but was very very pleasantly surprised. The hotels is in a great location, the rooms were clean, and the reception staff were always happy to help. The only problem was that it's a bit dated decor wise but it didn't bother us or affect...

Stayed here in New Cosmopolitan for one night while visiting Brighton. The small hotel looks very promising from the outside, overlooking a square with a pretty green area and by the sea, but that is where the nice becomes appalling. The room I was given, room 5 was probably the worst standard of Hotel room I have ever ever seen... More

Why oh why didn't I listen to previous reviews, but I gave the New Cosmopolitan the benefit of the doubt. Sadly the only good thing about this establishment is the location. Not only was the place tatty, I would question the safety, i.e. ripped carpets causing a trip hazard. I also witnessed a fire extinguisher being used to hold a... More

The best thing about the hotel the amazing view from the room I stayed in, good staff and location. But as a regular visitor to the area I would not return to this hotel the room smelt awful and I had to sleep with the window open, tripped over the threadbare carpet making way to my room and the most...

Myself and my husband stayed here for 2 nights and would not hesitate to go back, we had a great view of the pier and big wheel. The bed was comfy and clean, as was the room and we liked the big bay windows. Breakfast was excellent, great quality sausages and bacon, my husband commented on the sausages and asked... More

It has torn carpets, badly disjointed DIY. It needs a complete upgrade. The breakfast was over cooked, apart from warm bread that was suppose to be toast. It is such a shame, as the staff were lovely and the location is perfect. Such a huge potential.

We read the reviews before we came and hence, didn't expect the earth. We were pleasantly surprised. Staff were great and we had a great view with views of the ocean and pier. Linen and towels were good quality and it was all spotlessly clean. We had booked a fantastic deal online and paid just over 40 pounds including breakfast.... More

Stayed here for 4 nights, place is in need of repairs, lick of paint and redecoration all round, staff clearly want you in & out. Really is nothing special, paid £40pn so didn't expect anything amazing but did expect it to be a little better than it was. Bed was springy, shower was a bit grim, powerless and door was... More

Stayed 3 nights at this B&B in Brighton in June. Pleased that I had my own ensuite bathroom as shared bathrooms looked grim. The whole place needs new carpets, decor and a lick of paint. Not quite sure why the owners don't put more effort in as Brighton is a highly competitive market and it's a top location near the... More

Came to Brighton for a concert. I didn't read the reviews and had a great room, great view of the ocean and pier, perfect reception staff and dining room staff, easy to find and perfect location. Am planning a trip back in a months time and will stay here again.
