Stayed for 2 nights at this hotel. It's pretty good. It is an old building - apparently the oldest hotel in Brighton - so the layout is a bit quirky. We got one of the rooms at the back with no view, which wasn't a problem for us, but the decor is a bit "tired" - unpainted filler in door frame. Not a problem for us, but it is supposed to be a 4 star hotel.
The staff were really good; friendly and polite. Food is what you would expect. You can stuff yourself silly at breakfast, and many do, so there were times when they had run out of hot food and we had to wait.
Fantastic location on the front. I was surprised that there are no buses running along this part of the front, but that's not the fault of the hotel.
The only negative was that the room was a little cold. Usually, I find hotels too hot, but not this room (room 101!). The radiator seemed to come on and go off at random. Not a huge issue, but, again, this is a 4 star hotel.
