I've really enjoyed my stay at the Drakes hotel. The staff was very friendly and professional. The room was spacious, with a large bathroom. The position is ideal and the breakfast was simply superb. I would highly recommend this place, irrespectively if you visit Brighton for tourism or business.

I absolutely loved our stay at Drakes hotel. We were in a sea facing room where the main feature was the free standing bath. The view was spectacular, with a great view of Brighton pier. The room itself was perfect for us for a one night stay. A comfortable bed, clean facilities and tasty breakfast. There were only a few... More

Stayed in a Yin Yang room which was compact but very functional, and had a stand alone bath looking out over the sea front. The view of the beach and pier from the room was perfect, the shower in the wetroom very good. The bed comfortable. And... More

We picked this from TripAdvisor because of the good reviews and we were not disappointed! We are two friends travelling together and we prefer our own space. Generally, single rooms are disappointing but certainly not these little gems with perfect sea views, really comfortable beds (in fact, I need to ask the make of the beds as I have an... More

We have stayed at the Drakes many times and it has never disappointed. Over the time we stayed in many of the rooms, and they are all very comfortable, beautifully decorated and priced according to their size. As far as boutique hotels go, the Drakes ticks all the boxes and certainly will not disappoint. What really sets it apart is... More

Great location right on the beach front and close to everything and with good views, yet still quiet. Strange bathroom layout but perfectly functional and clever use of the space. Good clean facility.
