We were looking to celebrate our engagement at a small hotel, with great views of the brighton beach, the piers and a good price for a four poster bed.
This is exactly what we got!
From start to finish the staff were helpful and kind, even keeping cold a bottle of bubbly i bought in for our stay.
There is a nice little bar to have a drink before you go out into the town.
The hotel does have that faulty towers feel about it especially with the decor and old lift but we enjoyed this and thought it added to the character of the place.
Location is great with Kemp Town right around the corner, our favourite part of Brighton, with all its cafes, bars and restaurants. If you have not ventured around it please do.
The walk into the town centre is 10-15 minutes all along the seafont taking you past brighton pier, the aquarium staright into the south Lanes, perfect.
The breakfast, which we had in bed, was delivered on time and fine for us. We expected worse mainly because we'd recently stayed in two hotels in Italy where everything was cold and old. This was not the case here though a lot of people have mentioned it in earlier reviews. I suppose we rarely stay in hotels and dont have a certain expectation for their breakfasts. I had loads of sausages, bacon toast and beans. After I was full and happy as was the my partner. Simple as that, if you are looking for a locally sourced specialist breakfast you will need to find another hotel or go find a cafe somewhere in the surrounding area...good luck and see how much they charge.
The room was great, 4 poster bed for a great price, some changes could be made, a modern bathroom for example but too much change would lose this hotels character which we would not want to see.
The man who reviewed earlier about a MyHotel deal....really... we asked about 4 poster beds there on the weekend and they were £500/night. I also heard they have no views except that looking into offices opposite!
Bed was just right, comfortable, cosy and what we wanted. Traffic was slightly audible when we went asleep but it definitely didnt keep us up.
If you are looking for a little quirky hotel in Brighton with a great location and good service we reccommend here.
Hope this helps
