“Great for live music and functions!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013

The blue lagoon is an ideal place to go with your family of friends. There are two large bars upstairs and down and even a friendly parrot! The sports bar downstairs shows all the main games on a weekend and also throughout the week!

I have also experienced comedy nights here featuring a drag queen which are extremely funny and will suit all kind of humour levels!

The drink prices are very reasonable and there are always deals on different kind of drinks. The food is also lovely. The location is perfect it is easy to get to town from the Blue lagoon.

The staff are always friendly and helpful. Overall the place here is lively and the atmosphere is amazing would highly recommend!

What a weekend! I came down with a few friends to experience the night life in brighton but still left wondering as we didnt leave the B&B. Reasonable drink prices and a great atmosphere meant we didnt venture into town. Bar staff were all friendly and rooms comfortable. 10/10 would recommend to anyone and we will be back in the summer!

I went to a friends function at the Blue Lagoon and had a great time! Large bar split over 2 levels, with the function held in the downstairs 'sports bar' and another upstairs bar with a friendly parrot! The staff couldn't do enough to help, putting on a great spread of lovely food, very reasonably priced drinks and plenty of choice on the jukebox after our entertainment had finished!

Really friendly bunch running a great bar (and I understand the B&B attached) which I will be staying in next time I'm down for a weekend in Brighton next year!

Thanks all for a brilliant night

Stayed here on a stag weekend with the boys that answers it all. Don't come here for a romantic break unless you like bunk beds no heating shared shower and toilets rubbish food and unable to open windows. Beer was ok staff very nice whole venue needs a makeover wallpaper falling off the walls and its a 10 quid cab into Brighton from here .Good point if you are on a stag weekend and don't mind ruffing it with your mates then this is the venue for you bring warm nightclothes 24 hour security here I wonder why.

We do cater for groups but also families and couples, this is why we have night security - just to make sure everyone is happy with a good mixture of ages and reasons for staying. You stayed in the group wing which does have shared bathrooms and some bunk beds, a lot of people really enjoy this wing but maybe it's just not for you, we appreciate everyone is different. We have some really lovely double rooms for people looking for a "romantic break", you only had experience of the group wings, so don't worry if you were looking to bring your wife/ girlfriend. There certainly is heating, I'm not aware of any wallpaper hanging off but would be happy to see to it if that was the case and I'm sorry you felt that way about the food but again, it must be a preference thing as we have many other good reports.

Stayed here with my partner and two other couples for a weekend in brighton. Although not right in the centre, it was perfect, and near enough for easy access. We had a lovely clean spacious room, comfy bed, an excellent breakfast and the owners couldnt have been more helpful. We ended up staying an extra night and spent it at the sports bar to watch the football - great atmosphere. Definitely highly recommended.
