We stayed at this "hotel" for one night last weekend and I think it is ridiculous that it costs £80 a night! These people should not be allowed to charge this much for the standard they are offering. There is mold in the corridor, the lift is old (which is fine) and has metal guard with such a thick layer... More

Like others, wasn't sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. The room was newly light blue painted and floor recent laminated. Was cleaned to high standard. Bathroom was lovely, newish and clean. Was clean and comfortable with no frills, we got what we paid for for the area right on seafront. How could our stay have been improved? Two... More

My 3 friends & I stayed 1 night in Brighton to celebrate a birthday. We were not too fussed for a fancy hotel. We wondered whether or not to book superior room but as it was non refundable, we decided to stick with the standard room. We were pleased with the accommodation, the room was spacious & clean and there... More

They are refurbishing the whole hotel floor by floor. We originally had 2 double rooms booked but due to the refurb had to move us into two double rooms and 1 quadruple room, although on different floors it didn't matter too much as only there to sleep for the night, I asked for a discount and that was sorted for...

After reading the reviews we were unsure what the expect, from the outside the hotel doesn't look so appealing, however the inside was much better. The hotel seems to be being in the process of being refurbished and redecorated and we must of had a room that was newly done as it was lovely! Bathroom was very clean and modern,... More

We stayed here as part of a girly few days in Brighton. Great location - right by the sea front and within walking distance of the shops. Amazing restaurants and bars right around the corner. It certainly wasn't a luxury hotel but it was clean, quiet and welcoming. We did have to ask for extra pillows but they left them... More

This hotel needs someone professional in charge of the refurbishment. The lift floor is filthy and the room heating and hot water is very hit and miss. Unfortunately it was very much a 'miss' when we stayed there for one night on 13th Feb. 15. No mirror in bedroom and no net curtains at windows- very necessary when you are... More

I try to be fair and honest in my reviews so will apply this here too. West Beach Hotel doesn't really rate very highly for me as I think it's a little over-sold on its own website. In looking for a budget hotel for a night away as a break with my friend, twin rooms were a little hard to... More

It started to rain during the night and not much later it was dripping in the room! The kids were vast asleep so we didn't want to change rooms but the parents didn's sleep much. The room was not very clean, there were still christmas decorations and dirt on the floor and the floor was sticky. I informed the staff... More

This hotel badly needs some external decoration. It looks really tired and not the sort of place you'd walk in to off the street. The rooms are surprisingly large and decorated in a nice contemporary style. Very clean too. Corridors and the lift are again a bit shabby. We had a fair bit of noise outside our room but not...
