My boyfriend and I h's a midweek stay at this hotel for his birthday and were very much looking forward to it based on pictures & reviews. It lived up to the expectation. We were greeted by friendly staff who looked after our bags for a few hours before checkin. Then once we'd had obligatory drink & ice cream on... 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 :-)

What a wonderful guest house, we arrived early and dropped off our bags, we even managed to get into the room early. Room was very clean and cosy, best bed I've slept in very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, you may have to wait, but it is being cooked fresh, can't get any better than that, all the hosts were very... More

We stayed with our daughter son and his partner and Marbles our cream labradoodle and from the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble. Our rooms were cosy clean and well maintained.

I found it really difficult to find a sensibly priced hotel in Brighton - they were either extremely expensive or worryingly cheap. I stayed at The Oriental in a twin room with my daughter and it was ideal. Very comfy beds, feather pillows, well appointed room, great shower, lovely toiletries, luxurious towels and a great position in Brighton. The staff... More

I stayed in a single room which was quiet, clean and full of pleasant surprises. From the welcome sweets to the made-to-order breakfast, I had an amazing and cozy stay. The single room is small, as clearly stated on the website, but the modern bathroom and the comfy bed make it an absolute gem. My hosts were pleasant and very... More

We spent 2 nights here after waking up one morning and decided spontaneously that we wanted to go to Brighton. So we chose this hotel because we liked the look of the rooms and the reviews were really good. We were not disappointed, we were greeted by the hotel owner and Harry and we were immediately offered a cup of... More
