The exterior of the Hotel could do with some TLC but inside I found the staff to be friendly & helpful. Our room was bright & airy & a good size, with a sea view which was a pleasant surprise. The bathroom was clean & again a good size. I had a lovely nights sleep in the comfortable bed. I... More

The outside looked shabby and not that welcoming but once inside it was clean and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The lift is an experience not a smooth ride. The rooms were light, a fare size and most importantly of all clean. The bathroom was almost a big as the bedroom, again clean. The only slight criticism is... More

My friends and I decided to give this hotel a try after many considerations, we booked for a superior double room for 2 nights. And the first thing you may notice about the hotel is that the exterior may be quite a disappointment an also misunderstanding but the interior is a whole different story. The room was lightly blue and... More

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
