I am writing this as I have a spare hour whilst my partner gets ready to go out :)
I would like to say that on booking the hotel I did not do my usual trip advisor review on this trip ( crazy ). I have been to Brighton on many occasions so I am aware if the great location of the hotel. On booking it I then remembered about trip advisor so l looked it up ... I felt quite worried about the negativity and terrible reviews.
On arrival we were met by a friendly receptionist and the formalities were done. When we were told to go downstairs to our room my heart sunk, I had specifically requested a sea view. On finding the room down two lots of stairs and on opening the door my partner was concerned immediately that there was no window, she is asthmatic and it was a very dated room with marks all over the walls, so small and in the bathroom there was used tissues in the waste paper bin. My partner went to complain and ask for a room change, she was informed by the manager that there was no other rooms available, we were told we could have a refund or stay ..
We decided due to her asthma to look for another hotel. On going to the reception the manager Mohammed was very helpful and immediately gave a refund and even got on the phone to ring around other hotels without me even asking him to do this. Mohammed was able to secure us a room at a hotel 2 mins away and with a excellent sea view .. Many thanks Mohammed :). As for the hotel, I feel sorry for the manager as you can only work with what you have got
This is very dated and in need of a major overhaul . I did not get to drink or eat at this hotel so would be unfair to comment any further
