My husband and I stayed here in January this year - we had never stayed in Brighton before.
We had a double room on the 4th floor with a seaview. The hotel is located well and within walking distance of the sea, shops, restaurants and pubs. We were able to park our car in the free parking area which was a real bonus. The decoration, furniture and floors are clean, tidy and everything worked well.
The hotel is old fashioned but in a nice way and we loved all the original features of the building and the history of it which the gentleman on reception knew about and imparted his knowledge on this which was a nice touch. He was friendly, welcoming and professional.
It was a real change to stay in a hotel which had a homely, small hotel atmosphere and we were made to feel welcome from the very start of our stay.
Emily who was on duty in the evening was a star - nothing was too much trouble and she was courteous, polite and very professional.
Sadly the only thing that marred our stay, which we discussed before our departure was the window which didn't quite fit the frame and the wind from the sea raced through it (it was a very windy night), but it did make the room quite cold. We were told that this would be rectified, so I am sure it won't be an issue for anyone else.
We liked the fact that the breakfast was included in the price and thought it was value for money being only £80 per night (most of the other hotels are double this!). I was also able to use the Wifi facility in the hotel lounge. There is also a hotel bar which is a nice touch.
All in all we had a very pleasant stay and would return if we come back to Brighton again. Thank you everyone at the hotel for making our stay a pleasant one and making us feel very welcome.
