I stayed in the attic sea view room and woke to blue skies and lovely light over the sea. The room was spotless. comfortable and welcoming.I was lucky to get an excellent price as my stay was midweek in January and I would definitely return.

Watched a murmuration of starlings circling the pier as the sun went down from the comfort of Drake's Bar on marine parade in Brighton. Perfect end to a gorgeous sunny day in Brighton. Small, cosy, intimate and very friendly. We will most definitely be back!

Stayed 14th January in the City Bijou room for one night. I emailed prior to my arrival as it was my partners birthday, and the staff were able to put a birthday card out for him, as well as put some beautiful rose petals around the freestanding bath - a lovely touch! The room was much nicer than expected, couldn't...

This is a lovely boutique hotel a short walk away from the centre of Brighton. It's on the sea front and offers fantastic rooms with sea views, baths and a little bit of luxury compared to many other places in Brighton. It's let down a bit though by the little things like the noise of the air conditioning and bathroom...

Our room had a truly beautiful sea view overlooking the pier which was lit up at night. It was pretty small but perfectly appointed and just fine for one night. The bathroom was a tiny wet room but dried up pretty quickly. The bath tub in the room looked very inviting but there wasn't time on this visit to try...

My boyfriend and I visited this hotel for one night in December. We stayed in the Yin Yang room which I would highly recommend. The view is amazing, and it's a lovely place to watch the sunset over Brighton's seafront, especially from the free standing bath in the room. Perfect for a special occasion or a treat.
