This hotel was booked for a conference, and on arrival the tatty exterior (in desperate need of a paint job) made me want to turn around and leave. On arrival however the front of house were pleasant
and helpful, and my room- apart from needing new wallpaper, was clean and large.
We were well stocked with coffee and tea and sweets for the conference, and despite feeling like we were in a dark basement converted into a conference room, it was fine and what we needed.
Food/Service- not so great- i'm not sure what was worse- the very grumpy waitress who, when i asked if the pecan pie came with cream, said with such a sigh "Well i guess we could get you some" like i'd asked her to specially prepare my desert there and then in front of me whilst dancing a jig! Or the food- the main course was luke warm, and to be honest breakfast and lunch were a bit lack lustre too. My milk for tea in the morning breakfast was off, which was a small improvement on the coffee with our evening meal where i had to search out milk myself!!
I think i was dissapointed by our one waitress' attitude really - like we were causing her trouble by giving her business and paying to eat her lukewarm food. On our second day we went to take our lunch outside into the lovely sunshine, as was permitted on the first day, only to literally be shouted at to return indoors- nice way to treat your guests!
I think this place needs a lick of paint and a service standards overhaul, and would really only recommend it for a one night stop over, and to eat elsewhere.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Langfords Hotel in Hove is situated on a tree-lined avenue a short stroll from the shingle beach of Brighton and Hove’s historical seafront; only a fifteen minute walk from the bustling centre of the South Coast’s famous seaside resort of ‘kiss-me-quick’ Brighton. Although Brighton retains its cheeky reputation, it has grown up considerably since it merged with its immediate neighbour, Hove – when it became a new British city for the Millennium; a gift from HM The Queen! The combined treat of ‘Brighton & Hove’ officially merging, is that the City has become one of Britain’s most savvy twenty-first century Media Hubs – and The Langfords keeps pace happily, with conference packages to suit corporate delegates or for ‘start-ups’ in need of some space when meeting with clients…The Langfords is a lovely, red-brick Victorian building echoing with old charm and brimming with character. The hotel has 58 very well proportioned bedrooms (all with en-suite facilities), and the spacious lounge bar has direct access to our lawned gardens – perfect for relaxing in on those sunny summer days and warm evenings. We also have eight function suites and a reputation for excellent conference and wedding facilities. ... more less
