Booked last minute when we decided our round trip in a day would be too much. Helpful staff at reception, perfectly reasonable room although the hotel is in a busy area and so not perfectly quiet. Less helpful in the bar-we were at the last minute to eat & by the time we had the attention of anyone the clock had ticked past the hour so we could not dine (there was a fuse problem or something distracting everyone). Nevertheless we could have a sandwich which was decent enough for what it was and nicely served.
Comfortable bed and when we left at 5am the night receptionist kindly took us out through the back and pointed out a shortcut to the multi-storey car park to avoid being out in the howling gale. I wouldn't want to stay a week,I don't think, but will certainly stay a night or two next time we visit Brighton.
