Stayed here for a Saturday night in March in room 7. This is a basement room with 3 single beds that cost us less than £100 (which is a bargain in Brighton on a busy weekend).

As this property doesn't always have a manned reception you will be sent a text message asking approximately what time you will be arriving. When we arrived there was someone waiting to check us in which took all of 5 minutes or so.

The room is ideal for a group of friends who simply need somewhere to stay, a shower and some breakfast. The room was basic but clean. Kettle and tea/coffee were provided. The bathroom is large and clean.

Breakfast is served at the sister hotel just around the corner. Fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereal and cheese is available as is a full English breakfast. You can choose any combination of your favourite ingredients (including double everything which we didn't realise until too late!).
The hotel is a couple of minutes walk from the seafront and shops and about 5 minutes from the lanes. It is also very easy to find from Brighton train station (about 10 mins walk).

As the title suggests, this is ideal if you are having a night out in Brighton and then setting off early the next day.

Having paid £60 for the room I was a bit shocked at the appearance which was quite decayed, having stayed at The Albion near to the pier a couple of months ago for the same price in a four poster.!!! But this guest house was pet friendly and we were able to bring our cocker spaniel to stay in our room which may not be allowed elsewhere. We were very pleased with the great breakfast at the nearby Adelaide, the owner, Chris, made us so welcome and made a fuss of Poppy. This guest house is in a great location but is in need of some T L C to bring it up to standard. We would stay again but feel £60 per night is expensive for a room which needs updating, but this is Brighton price, and demand is evident. Please expect to pay an extra £10 per night to park your car in a nearby underground car park.

Stayed for a week on business. Positives were a great location (v good proximity to town, sea front, conference centre etc.), very reasonable price and a tasty breakfast.

On the downside the room was quite cold, shower wasn't great and the wifi was poor.

Certainly wasn't a bad stay but could have been more comfortable.

Cleanliness obviously not a priority at this hotel.The staff were rude when I complained about the mouldy shower curtain, dirty kettle,lots of food crumbs left in the clothes drawer and the dirty towels left in the shower all day. I was abused verbally and told the kettle was only dirty on the outside not the inside,I hope they have lifted the standard since I stayed.

Me and my boyfriend arrived in Brighton, having booked with another hotel that was not open and there was no sight of anyone at the booking time so we needed to arrange another place to stay for the night. We come across Russell guest house down the road and we had a friendly welcoming, considering we needed a room on the spot. We got taken to our room before we gave our payment, the price was also a good price for a night near the sea front and a booking on the day. We had the top floor room with a double bed and a single bed, tv, fridge, hot shower en suite and a full set breakfast we could choose from in the morning which was lovely :). We both had a great nights stay at the Russell guest house!
