We had a fab time at the Malmaison. Yes the hotel hasn't completed its refurbishment but the room we had was lovely. We got upgraded to an Executive suite with sea views. Dominic on reception was so helpful. It was Hubby's birthday so we had complimentary cocktails and he was given chocolate and strawberries. Decor is important but nothing without... More

After having stayed at various Malmaison hotels throughout the UK it was great to see the new opening in Brighton - but what a let down. To change the name above the door and call it a Malmaison is really not acceptable - nothing about the current hotel is a Malmaison and it shouldn't be called or marketed as one... More

This hotel has a very enticing website and wonderful pictures which unfortunately do not accurately describe the product which we as guests are receiving. I note that there is no mention of room size in the descriptions given, perhaps because a room with a sea view is really extremely small for two people, with no space to place a suitcase,... More

Attended a luncheon function at the Malmaison/Seattle hotel and was very disappointed with the main course of the meal as it only contained a few pieces of string beans & carrots and the roast potatoes were hard inside. Service between courses was very slow. Definitely not of Malmaision standard!

Overall it was a good stay, room was a good size and comfortable enough. Location is great for the marina, lots of cheaper chain restaurants to choose from. Bar is good with a nice terrace area. Breakfast was ok but slow service. There is free parking in the marina but hotel not easy to find.

I am a fan of Malmaison, which is why we stayed here, but this is not yet a real Malmaison hotel. The location is good, overlooking the Marina, but you are a long way from Brighton town. The Marina is a bit shabby, and full of cheap places to eat. Access to the hotel is not easy, and the room... More

They're doing some work on this hotel, and it wasn't clear if we had a room that had been updated or not; we're hoping it was still waiting to be updated. First, the good bits - the staff were great; the room was huge; we had doors which opened out onto the balcony overlooking the marina. I say "doors". One... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Malmaison Brighton, a contemporary hotel with a big personality on Brighton Marina waterfront. Uniquely located to offer the best views of Brighton Marina. Close enough to make the best of Brighton's vibrant life but also somewhere where you can enjoy a more relaxed environment with great hospitality, fresh & local produce menus & something a little more unique. Seattle is a hotel to explore, sit back and enjoy the day in the lounge, as the boats come and go, or perhaps it will be the retro pop art that will attract you or relax on our terrace and enjoy the buzz of our restaurant during the evening. Our team are a big part of what makes the Seattle experience so unique. You'll find them friendly, welcoming and never shy to help. ... more   less
