Just came home from staying here whilst in Brighton For the weekend. Although the staff were friendly and helpful and the actual room was clean there were a few points I would like to make.firstly they do not have a working card machine so you need to take enough cash to pay for the room up front.secondly although as I say the rooms and bathroom was clean in itself the carpet which run through the house and in to the bedrooms really needs a good clean or ideally replacing as looks very grubby? The furniture also needs replacing I sat on a chair in the room and was stabbed by a loose spring which had escaped through a split in the chair.towels although clean are threadbare so would recommend in bringing your own.although breakfast was fine it was a bit chaotic waited 20 mins for tea and toast and other people were complaining about the wait for breakfast and there were 6 people seated at a table for 4 and 4 people at a table for 6 so they really need to put room numbers on the tables.also check out time was advertised as 10.30 but at 10.20 the staff were going round knocking all the doors shouting 'check out time'! We said we would be 5 mins but they waited out side the door until we left! Considering some people were in the breakfast room for over an hour they need to be more flexible with customers.it is fine to stay here if you want a reasonable priced room at a good location (5 mins from the pier ) but if you want
More home comforts you need to look elsewhere.also the room was advertised as a 'lovely garden view' but they do not have a garden! It overlooks the backs of other guest houses and please be warned that the building next door is a meeting place for the seagulls who literally do screech all night,waking us up at least 4-5 times a night! The plus side is the beds are comfortable and the rooms have a nice little flat screen tv.
