We stayed here during a conference in Brighton in June, the rooms do need a bit of TLC and updating. The bed was comfortable though and the room and bathroom were both clean. The towels could also do with replacing. There are tea and coffee making facilities and the fun size choc bars left each day were a nice touch.... More

The owner was rude from The moment we got there till the moment we left. The room was dirty and dated, there were no mattress protectors on the beds or pillows and the furniture out was very poor quality. On the first night of our stay there my bed broke the slats came out and my mattress was on the... More

Staff were extremely rude and uninterested in helping me throughout my stay. Place was a mess and half of the room covered with dust. Lots more to say but honestly the worst guest house I've ever visited.

My friend booked this last minute and to be honest this place needs some work. Stayed in the first floor twin and well the shower needs replacing and it needs some care and attention. Breakfast you have to go around the corner too their sister hotel which is pleasant and a lot more care is taken here which is sad... More

Booked this last minute with my bf. The room was very lifeless, and uncared for.. not that you come to hotel to watch the TV, but it didn't work! The tea and coffee facilities were unclean... sugar was hard and stuck in the jar. Unfortunately we didn't make it to breakfast but is apparently a '2 minute walk' to another... More

Stayed in the triple room in the basement. It was ok bearing in mind we were only there between 3-9am. Clearly needs some TLC, but would need huge investment to make it inviting. Staff nice, good breakfast in separate hotel. Price ok for a Friday in December.

We stayed here on New Year's Eve and paid around £100 for a double room with breakfast for 2 which was very good value in comparison to other hotels on that night. The hotel is fine if you want a clean comfortable stay for one night, especially if you are having a night out, I wouldn't recommend for longer stays.... More

Positives: Clean beds and breakfast at associated hotel nearby excellent. Negatives: While clean the place appears tired and uncared for, scruffy in fact. If all you want is a bed for the night, a shower and tea making facilities it is ok.If you want something special pay more and go elsewhere. If you stsy us a long one, so somewhere... More

A good, basic guest house in a perfect location for anyone wanting to visit Brighton. Only a short walk away from both the seafront and centre of Brighton. We stayed on New Year's Eve and for the cost of the one night stay, I really can't complain. The guest house itself is a little outdated and could do with being... More
