Stayed for five days in the Josephine Suite on the top floor of the hotel. Very quiet room with excellent amenities and huge living area. The chambermaids do an excellent job of maintaining the room and refreshed all the relevant areas. Everyday, we had fresh water, biscuits etc. The hotel itself, although old and starting to look a little tired (but nowhere near ready for a refurb), is lovely. The grand staircase is a wonder. The staff and service levels are superb and the breakfast is one of the best we've had for a long time - there's just about everything available. The only disappointment was the evening dinner. Food was okay, nothing exciting, but the menu presentation was uninspired and it just didn't feel very luxurious. Everything was an optional extra – chocolates with coffee, hot bread on arrival, even a vegetable with your main course (seriously, no green at all on the main course plate). Still, plenty of great restaurants a short walk away (lovely Greek one called Stakis – turn right out of the hotel, past the Hilton and there it is, down some steps). Jamie Oliver’s Italian is also less than 200 metres away. Please note, if you haven’t been to Brighton before, it only has a pebble beach – not a grain of sand in sight. That said, there’s a free kids play area around 200 metres away from the hotel which has a shallow pool and huge sandpit, slides, climbing frames etc.
