“Disappointing room and facilities but nice breakfast”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Stayed in family room on a Saturday night. It was quite a nice size and boasted a courtyard. However, the courtyard turned out to be a postage stamp size yard outside of bathroom and in desperate need of some TLC The bathroom was very outdated and seemed to be booby trapped with toilet seat and towel rail coming off completely whilst in use. It was described as luxury which it did not resemble in any way, shape or form. Being located in basement also resulted in no mobile signal whatsoever for the overnight stay unless you went upstairs to lobby. Staff very friendly and breakfast was lovely but would not recommend and will not stay again. When complained about room and courtyard was told it was for smokers and this was not the case as non smoking room. Also toilet seat is detachable for deep cleaning (first I've heard of this idea) and as I stated not when in use though. Was told by management I knew what I was booking as photographs on site. Have included my photos for people to see and make there minds up if they would like to book this hotel.

We had 3 very different rooms for a family trip away and they were all lovely. Breakast was delicious. Dog was welcomed. Midday check out time was a treat and gave us an extra morning to relax in Brighton. We are all looking forward to a return trip.

We stayed for a Saturday night. Brighton prices are high but even we were surprised by the very small room (Marrakech). Swinging the proverbial cat was impossible. Small slipway round the bed and tiny shower room. No proper dressing table, just an alcove.The location is excellent and the staff were friendly. However we were woken early on the Sunday morning by the upstairs room's residents. We heard them walking to and fro across the room, going for a pee, flushing and then the wash basin and shower in action! So no sleep-in for us. It was very, very noisy! If you've got an early start, that might not be a problem, but if you want the luxury of a Sunday morning lie-in, this is not the place for you. Breakfast was good, but I would have forgone that for a little more sleep, quite frankly.

Very friendly hotel, good size rooms, staff very friendly and a nice breakfast left in the room due to early checkout.

I booked on laterooms and got a good deal (1/4 of advertised) and was more than happy for the price I paid.

A First class hotel on Brighton Sea Front, Great rooms, and friendly staff, could not recommend this hotel more highly! Themed rooms for all different tastes and a little bit of luxury for those that want it. Try the Eden Suite!!! Great Location, and Tanya was a first class hostess!

Booked the deal through KGB Deals for my partners birthday. Great location and the room was well layed out with its chosen theme. A few pointers which even though its a Boutique Hotel should be able to overcome. When calling to make the reservation the staff member was rude and said I had to call back later (I nearly called and cancelled the booking) when calling back, better response apart from when I requested that I really did not want the Elvis room (not a fan) and was told I cant do that! I requested she put it in the booking details? I received a "sigh and I suppose I could do that!" Those two training issues aside check in was good and the breakfast was excellent!

Room Tip: If the staff on the phone say she can not pre allocate the room request she put it in the booking de...
