Stayed here for 2 nights. They let us have a look at a number of rooms and we chose 13. They are all a bit different - some are smaller and have a balcony. Some are queen, some king.
We've stayed at a number of Quest properties. Most are apartments, but Quest did not build this hotel, but bought it, so it does not have 1,2 bed apartments etc, just rooms. Non of the rooms have sea view, just the penthouses, which are on long term lease.
The hotel is located on the beach esplanade. You just walk across the road to the beach, in either direction. Lovely CBD views across the bay. Nice pier to walk along. Sailing club and outdoor swimming baths opposite. All very pleasant. A few shops nearby, but for the main shops and supermarkets, you need to drive 2 mins to Brighton.
Large private underground car park. Efficient and friendly check in. Plenty of local information in reception. There is a restaurant, but we did not use it.
Huge room with very comfy king bed. Good size tv. Nice sofa area and spaceous dining area. Compact but functional cooking area with dishwasher. No in room washer/dryer, but free facilities available in the hotel.
Very large bathroom with his/hers sinks. Large walk-in shower and full size tub.
All very clean and well maintained.
If you want the action of the city, then don't stay here, but if you want a peaceful beachside location, then this is perfect. There is a fish and chip shop nearby and cafes opposite at the sailing club and baths.
We liked everything about the place. Helpful staff, great room, fab location. Could not find anything that we did not like.
