We booked last minute for a Valentines weekend in Brighton and understandably the choice was limited, it was also the weekend of the Brighton Half Marathon and the beginning of half term. The room did not disappoint, it was a little more expensive than what we would normally pay for a hotel of that standard but was the cheapest we... More

Our stay was ok but the place is very tied and feels like it would have been nice 10 years ago. Now it is in need of a facelift - quite shabby rooms all patched up poorly, our room was missing light bulbs, smelt old and the shower ran boiling hot then freezing. The full English breakfast wasn't great and... More

Visited the hotel for a long weekend. This is not a boutique hotel whatsoever! Good point: location and Leighton (manager?) is very friendly. Bad points: 1. Cleanliness. I have never been in a room that dirty in my life! Just check the pictures. 2. The hotel was chosen on the premises that they advertise themselves as a spa hotel. This... More

Stood outside ringing the doorbell and calling reception for 15 minutes before I was let in. I told the receptionist I was about to go find another hotel, he didn't even respond or apologise, just wanted to take my payment. The bathroom had no shower, just an attachment to the taps. There were no mirrors near any plug sockets, I... More

Good location, with my room having a balcony and view of the pier. Bed and room were ok, shower was not much better than a dribble though! Booked through late rooms and got a really good price so hard to be to down beat, however. The deal advertised was for a room and massage but was unable to have the... More

Came to stay at urban house for. Girlie night out in Brighton with friends and loved urban house, cute boutique hotel, nice interior and room decor. And Leighton the hotel manager was so helpful and friendly, even fetched us some champagne flutes to drink the birthday bubbles I had brought with me, also breakfast included such a great price too

First time staying at Urban House and we enjoyed it. Friendly welcome on arrival and everything explained well. Room was a sea view with a balcony and we could see the (end) of the pier. Lovely room with a four poster bed, nicely made up and very comfy. All you need is in the room. Choice of continental or full... More

My wife and I booked this hotel recently for a 2 night stay - I have to say this was the single worst experience of my life, as far as booking hotels is concerned - the plus side was the location, which was excellent and close to all amenities, bars and pier etc - unfortunately that's where the good things...

stayed with my partner for the convention he was attending, the room was rather small but we were lucky to find this room as almost all hotels around this area was sold out. We arrived late at night and the reception generally was already closed at that time, it was us who missed out the normal check-in time.. Fortunately we... More

When we arrived we were greeted by a lovely dude on reception who was very helpful and pleasant. The room we were allocated was very clean and the bed was super comfy.. The location is excellent for bars, restaurants and the sea front. There was a t.v and free wifi in our room, tea and coffee, a hair dryer, a... More
