“Great location for Brighton”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

We paid for our family to stay at the Hilton Brighton. The rooms were all very modern and the rooms had direct views of the sea. A very comfortable stay for our family and a great location for getting around in town and on the seafront.

Room Tip: Sea views rooms are worth paying the extra money for

Dear SimonBrightonBN2,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write your feedback following you and your family’s recent stay at Hilton Brighton Metropole.

The hotel as you say has a great location and with the facilities we provide and refurbishments we have made is a great base from which to explore the local area.

Once again, thank you for your feedback and I look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the near future.

Kind regards

I arrived early on friday morning to work from the hotel, expecting to be sat in the lobby running the internet off a dongle, however I was guided to the business suite and provided with a desk and a free wifi code. It is a perfect work environment however the wifi requires a login every hour which is a bit annoying if using a VPN...

I checked in using the HHonors queue and was greeted by helpful staff who upgraded my room as part of the HHonors scheme, and also printed some documents I needed and sent them to my room.

The room itself (305) I would highly recommend.It was massive with a balcony and a view of the old pier. Provisions in the room were well stocked, and gambling on not stuffing a washbag into my bag paid off as all toiletries were high quality.

Breakfast was very good considering the Saturday morning rush at 1030; checkout efficient; and parking was reasonably priced. Brighton is always a pleasure, improved by the level of service and quality of the room at the Hilton Metropole.

Room
Lovely, huge room: with a massive double bed. Bigger than a Kingsize. Bit dark as I was at one side of the building with a view of some scaffolding, but other than this pretty much a perfect room.

Bathroom also large, with a shower over bath. Decent toiletries and even included conditioner.

Conference Facilities
Decent enough rooms - some of them windowless and a bit soulless but OK. I've been in worse! Not enough plug sockets, and those that there were were midway up the wall so created an interesting situation when people tried to move.

There's also a little business suite with photocopiers etc. - nominal charges for.

Restaurant
Breakfast spread is brilliant, everything from full english and all you'd expect in a continental. Good croissants too!They'll warm them up for you if you ask.

Included fresh fruit (not tinned).

We had lunch as part of the conference - a buffet so very easy to go in at different times and eat on the hop. Food very good for a hot buffet if nothing special in the grand scheme of things.

Service
Great: porter on hand near reception for any questions etc. Waiting staff all more than happy to help, if seeming a little stressed over the lunchtime rushes.

Location
Right on the seafront, everything you could want nearby. Lovely view, and very convenient for an evening wander!

Tiny cell-like room with no view and faulty plumbing. Washbasin would not drain and scalding water from stuck shower valve. Wifi not working. Spacious car park and good breakfast buffet but there are much better places to stay for the same price in Brighton.

The tables for tea are set up in a cosy 'nook' away from other clientele. We were given the choice of when to have our glass of champagne and opted to have it first. It was excellent! The sandwiches, scones, cakes and sweet nibbles were fresh and delightful. The staff was pleasant and attentive.A thoroughly enjoyable experience.

The hotel is located on the beach road and is only a couple of hundred meters away from the city center. It is a hotel with all the amenities you could ask for. The bar lounge is very nice, the breakfasts are great and the food is Very good. The dining area is majestic and it was nice to relax and warm up in the spa after a cold day outside.
