I had been looking for a Saturday night BnB around Brighton, when I came across this hotel. Compared to Brighton prices, this was one was cheap and I couldn't believe that at £70 for a twin room, dinner was included. From the outside and in the reception area the impression was very good and at that price we expected the... More

Their customer service was particularly good with a welcome speech on arrival and a farewell speech on our departure. The restaurant was good with excellent serving staff and although... More

As a disabled visitor I was looked after very well & my hired scooter was taken to the front of the hotel every morning & charged for me every evening. The single room was large and very... More

Dinner was dreadful (looked like microwaves meals) Rude dinner staff (Chinese lady with no manners) Sat straight next to people we didn't know. Not what I call a dinner table. Will... More

What a lovely surprise the Imperial turned out to be. I was very unsure when booking it after reading some of the reviews but I need not have worried. We were greeted by a lovely young lady who could not do enough to help us. The room was big and airy with wonderfully high ceilings. The heating was rather over... More
