This was honestly the cheapest hotel i found in Brighton for the weekend prior to Christmas and it is by no means swish or stylish but the rooms were clean and a breakfast buffet was free! You literally can not find a better location in Brighton and I think this may be why they have never bothered doing it up - maybe they make enough money without giving it a lick of paint but the decor is severely dated and the rooms were too hot and stuffy - we slept with the windows open when it was freezing outside!
I would have loved to give this hotel four stars for the convenient location and complimentary breakfast (which really was excellent!) however, we left something in the room and called the next day to see if they had found it. We called five times, left messages with different reception staff each time and we were never called back. We appreciate they were busy but I would have thought that, over a ten hour time period with five phone calls, we could have expected a response - even if they couldn't find our missing object, a courtesy call was expected. I felt this really let the hotel down in our eyes as when we left we felt we had found a bargain hotel with a great location and fantastic food...it's a shame really :(
