We all had good sleep, nice bed, a bit of noise from street but overall no problems. The room on first floor ceiling has mouldy marks on corner ceiling. It is a bigger size room,... More

The location of this place cannot be faulted, you can see the pier from the front door which is just superb. Very central, we walked everywhere. For the money i was surprised at the style, a lot of clashing colours ect. Which did disappoint on arrival for the money. However i would say this wasn't the case of all the... More

Lovely place to stay, right in the centre of everything. Pier and beach were just a short walk away as were the pavilion and the lanes. Rooms were lovely and spacious and breakfast each morning was amazing. Staff were really friendly and welcoming.

Staff were very friendly. Very close to the pier and the lanes. Provided with a hearty breakfast each morning, fresh towels each day, small bottle of wine and chocolates upon check-in and snacks and water daily. Large room and ensuite. Problem with leaky tub faucet and cracked tub skirting. Thankfully the door automatically shut so the leaking did not keep... More

This was a solo trip and so I had a single room which was tiny. However, it had everything necessary and more. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, bottle of spring water, chocolates laid neatly on the towels, biscuits, TV, ironing board and .... a small packet of earplugs! Breakfast was great with loads of choice. Parking in Brighton is a nightmare,... More

Great location, right near the pier. Good price, lots in Brighton are very expensive. Fairly quiet at night except for seagulls! Small room, but fine for 1 night. Very clean. Breakfast was lovely. Honey & homemade preserves was a nice extra as was cafetière coffee. Would return, as was easy to find & good location to explore. Cheerful staff at... More
