I think the photos should be treated with caution on the website, as the rooms look deceptively roomy in them, you couldn't really swing a cat in the rooms. The room we had was tastefully decorated but was starting to look tired and could do with a new lick of paint. The showers the website rave about weren't anything special- (the bathroom is literally a box room- so much so the sink is in your bedroom.)
Good points- the breakfast was tasty and had a good vegi option. The location was amazing, and literally 7 minute walk to Brighton Centre (which was why we came to Brighton for the night.)
But looking at it as a whole, not entirely sure it could quite justify the 90 quid price tag that came with it.
