If at first sight, you think the hotel isn't quite as promising as its own website suggests, don't despair. Sure, it's not exactly clear which door leads into the hotel, (an additional sign would help!), but the welcome beyond the door is warm and the staff are extremely helpful. There is no lift and my room on the 3rd floor... More

We needed a hotel close to the property we were exiting on Marine Parade for a night before heading to the airport and found a gem of a hotel just a few yards away from our property. Great service, fab room and excellent breakfast helped lower our stress levels and left us chilled for our onward trip. Would completely recommend... More

We visited the Drakes in July 2016 and it is such a fab hotel - you can see why Kylie stays here! The rooms are amazing and very stylish (if you stay in one of the split level rooms the bathroom is on the lower floor accessed down some stairs in your room and the doors are not fully soundproofed...

Visited this restaurant with work and a group of 8 of us had the 4 course menu. Although it was all a bit long winded with various other tasting samples etc given complimentary. Food was okay but the service was average and overall the restaurant was trying to be something it's not

We have just returned from a 2 night stay in room 104. The room is on the 2nd floor and overlooks the beach and pier. The hotel could not be in a better position - we were able to explore the Laines and the pier with great ease. It was on my bucket list to stay in a hotel with... More

Stayed at Drakes for two nights in a king size circular sea facing room. Amazing view of the pier. The hotel makes great use of the space so that the room feels larger than it is. There's no elevator but the staff are extremely helpful with luggage. We had dinner one night in the restaurant which was excellent although the... More

Stayed recently for a special occasion and just didn't feel like I got the wow factor I was expecting, nothing in particular that I could fault with the room, it was nice enough just a lot of money for nice enough. I didn't get on with the pillows but that's a preference I guess. There was a card from staff... More

Having not visited Brighton for over 30 years, I was surprised at a) the shortage of accommodation b) the lack of parking and c) the prices. Drakes is a very good hotel and I would stay again. Our room in the attic was VERY small, but it did have a sea view and was well appointed. The staff are excellent.... More

We have been to Brighton a few time over the years and really enjoyed our stay at Drakes. The staff are really nice and helpful. They do have parking next door which is a bonus as this can be a problem in Brighton. It is in a good easy position for find and to go and explore. I would certainly... More
