A lovely Victorian building, and its location made it great for exploring Hove which we wouldn't have thought of doing. It's a fascinating area in its own right full of great and diverse architecture, a lovely park and querky little streets as well as impressive boulevards. Our room was impeccably clean, and had clearly recently been redecorated. Free parking was a real bonus because parking is usually an expensive nightmare around Brighton and Hove. It was great value at £85 the night for the two of us including breakfast. The breakfast was excellent, and the staff welcoming and helpful. On the down side we felt the images on their website were a bit misleading - I suspect they show recently refurbished and upgraded rooms rather than those that might be more typical. We did enjoy our stay - the room was big, it was very quiet (not overlooking the street) and the bed was amazingly comfortable. However, the bath was very small and my wife (who is not exactly huge) had some difficulty getting out, given the way it was jammed up against a wall window with little are for hands and downward pressure. Impressive tap display, but a thin trickle of hot water from bath and washbasin taps. Despite these niggles, it was great value. I'm sure the management are working hard to improve and upgrade it. A tip to management - either water your indoor and outdoor plant displays. Or throw them away! Sadly neglected plants give a poor impression - either initially or on reflection.
