stayed here for the weekend and have to say one of the best hotels we have stayed in. Arrived from Brighton train station on Friday evening (easy to find ,out of station straight ahead as far as sea front then 100 metres on the left!) checked in easily at reception friendly staff told us where bar, restaurant and stairs/lift to room was. Stayed in room 108, slight view of the sea. Room was clean, warm very welcoming. There was big wardrobe with iron/ironing board, hairdryer, trouser press, tea/coffee making facilities, flat screen tv with freeview and toiletries in bathroom. Beds were very comfortable, and even though weekend and situated on first floor sleep wasn't disturbed. Breakfast in the morning was amazing, The older lady who greeted us was lovely, very professional and friendly. There was so much breakfast to chose from: full English, cereal, pastries, cakes, fruit, dried fruits and yoghurts. The bar is a very nice and relaxing area, plenty of space to sit and have a quiet drink. Check out of the hotel is 11am. The hotel is just few minutes walk from the pier and big wheel, and plenty of pubs and fish and chip shops all around on the sea front. Prices are quite expensive (£6.50 fish and chips, £3-£6 per fun fair ride, £2.50 an ice cream ) but what you'd expect really. There is a sightseeing bus £10 adults which leaves the pier regular. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, and will be returning in the summer for sure!
