The memory foam mattresses are great, as is the locally sourced organic breakfast. The staff really do aim to please and are ready to be flexible with arrangements for breakfast to suit clients' situations.

We spend four nights in the Oriental .It's a very small hotel, but very cosy.We
loved our stay in this hotel. Our room was beautifully decorated in modern style without detracting from the old world charm of the hotel. The whole stuff was friendly and obliging.
Next stay in Brighton will certainly  be at the Oriental !

I had a super stay at The Oriental! The room was clean, the breakfast was amazing and the staff so friendly. It's the best place in Brighton Hove to stay!

A small but very friendly hotel just far enough removed from the hustle and bustle but only a few short steps away. Imaginatively furnished, tastefully decorated. Do not expect concierge or room services but expect a warmer welcome than any large hotel. We felt if our hosts could have done anything for us they would have.

Loved our stay in this hotel. Our room and bathroom were beautifully decorated in contemporary style without detracting from the old world charm of the hotel. Service was first rate especially the fabulous breakfast. Few minutes walk to the town centre and a few steps down to the ocean. Only thing I would mention is if you have problem with stairs mention this in your booking; it is a narrow, tall terrace building and our room was up a couple of levels.

Room Tip: See above re stairs
