Stayed here for my partners birthday over bank holiday weekend. Hotel is in a fantastic position for the lanes and directly opposite the pier. Our room was ok, modern with a very comfortable bed. We had a problem with the lights in the room. The fuse kept going when putting the light on in the bathroom. After about an hour... More

Picked the " CIRCULAR KINGSIZE SEA FACING" room because of the view and the big and romantic bathtub. The view was amazing and the room very clean. Probably the next time I'll came to Brighton I'l choose the same hotel and the same room. Also the location is awesome, very close to the beach, Brighton Pier, restaurants, museums, etc.

We had two of the "attic" rooms which were perfect for our family of 5. Kids in one, grown-ups in the other - what's not to like! Staff were excellent - really helpful and friendly. The location is perfect; 1 minute walk to beach, 5 minutes to pier and into town. Nice quiet bar for a night-cap as well (must... More

We booked this hotel as we love coming to Brighton. The hotel is situated on the seafront about a 4 minute walk to the pier. We were greeted warmly on arrival and Ben showed us where to park our car, which is on the forecourt of the premises next door. The cost is £15 per 24 hours which if you... More

Me and my partner stayed at Drakes in the feature room for 1 night for his birthday. The room was absolutley amazing, so much better than we had expected. The view of the sea and pier was an absolute picture and the staff were so welcoming and friendly. Our only complaint would be the road noise at night but this... More

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.
