Great weekend in Brighton for friends' wedding, and we found The Oriental through Tripadvisor. A great place - thank you for making us so welcome. Perfect location - really central, can hear the surf but not disturbed by the traffic on the main strand. Really comfy bed, all really clean, great breakfast. Quirky and stylish decor. Agree with other reviewers... More

The room (9) was small but perfectly adequate and clean, with complimentary treats and plenty of teas and coffee. Breakfast was brilliant and all the staff were great. Stairs lots... More

I was attending a Conference near Brighton but wanted accommodation in the town and by chance saw this written up in a Telegraph feature. It looked as if it fitted the bill perfectly so I booked two nights. Quite far in advance which I think was as well, it's a busy place! I had a single room on the first... More

Absolutely lovely B&B with great and friendly service. Sash windows meant it was a tad loud at night, but the décor itself was brilliant and vibrant. Also the breakfast was amazing! Would highly recommend this place to anyone!

What a lovely find! Lovely clean room, friendly staff. Great choices for breakfast as my partner prefers a full English breakfast and myself prefering fruit and cereals. All with the decor having a quirky boutique edge. Perfect! We will definately be visiting again :-)
