    Nice B&B conveniently located in the centre of Brighton within walking distance of most sights and close to main bus routes. Room was reasonable size and clean with good breakfast choices. No manned reception at night though.

    At very late notice, I was able to book a double room with breakfast at this B&B to avoid having to travel home very late after a work event. The website provided very accurate photos of the room I was going to stay in and...More

    Looking for something different just for one night, away from the usual chain hotel groups. Reviews about this place raves about the breakfast. They were wrong! Unremarkable breakfast which did not therefore make up for a pretty dingy basic b & b. No character, and...More

    Easy to find, you park in the Hilton Metropole underground carpark and walk up the hill. There is no reception, just a corridor, which is a bit odd as no reception desk. The people tho are lovely and couldn't have done more to make us...More

    Hi, I'm afraid I'm unsure as I booked through a 3rd party. Maybe try ringing them? We rung to check about leaving luggage. Hope this helps. Ellie

    The people at the Motel Schmotel are so helpful, Iam sure that it won't be a problem. They certainly have eggs, yoghurt, fruit and kippers on offer! The hotel is super close to beach, shops Royal Pavillion and the pier.

    There are a couple of spaces but they had gone when we got there so we went. There is a park nearby. I haven't got the paperwork on me but will look for it or they will give it to you in the hotel.
