“Decent Value For A Family Trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2010

Took a week's holiday in Brighton with the wife and two kids (9 & 6). Had been quite concerned at how expensive the few hotels that would accomodate 2 children were for the school holidays but then found that the Premier Inn came out at about £80 a night for us all including a full buffet breakfast.
At that price I was a little concerned about the quality of the place but I needn't have been. The location is very good for the beach, the pier and the main shopping centre, only drawback being that it's on a busy road which means that you hit the crowds when you leave the entrance seemingly no matter what time of day or night. The room was clean and comfortable. The 2nd child bed wasn't made up when we arrived but a trip to reception quickly had that sorted. The double glazing kept out the noise from the aforementioned busy street below and you could hardly hear the trademark seagulls.
Breakfast was very good for the price. The only drawback is that t can get rather busy at times and the hardworking staff struggle to cope at peak times - not for want of tryng.
All in all it was a good place for us to stay and I don't think you can go wrong if you're travelling to Brighton on a budget.

We stayed for two nights when in Brighton for a wedding. The room was a good size with all the basics, including tea and a kettle, and was clean. The reception staff were really friendly and helpful and gave us a nice quiet room at the back of the hotel. We had breakfast on one of the days, which was good for the price. Price is not cheap for a Premier Inn but it is located in the centre of Brighton and thus is pretty good value for the type of room and location. Would stay again if in Brighton.

We stayed at the Premier Inn, Brighton, recently and found the staff to be amazingly helpful and really friendly and chatty. They did all they could to ensure our stay there was a pleasant and happy one. I can't praise the staff enough......absolutely brilliant.
The location of the hotel was excellent, and the rooms were spotless. i would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone of my family and friends. And I hope to return to Brighton one day...and I will definately be staying there again.

Thanks guys for making our stay in Brighton so memorable.

We stayed at the Premier Inn in Brighton Centre for theree nights and found the staff to be extremely friendly and helpfull. The breakfast was excellant and the service superb. I lost my wedding ring in the room and it was found by the cleaning staff and left on the bedside cabinet for me upon my return to the room. Excellant honest cleaning staff. The hotel location is brilliant for people travelling to Brighton without a car. Parking is a nightmare hence the choice of this hotel.

I stay in Brighton every year ,and have stayed in several different hotels and feel unless you stay in the higher end hotels, a lot of places here are overated and overpriced for what you get, the premier rooms are always clean , spacious and the location is great, you are two minutes to the lanes,and Brighton pavillion and right by the beach etc.When ever we stay here we are always out and about and spend very little time in the room so it suits us, i have stayed in a couple of "boutique hotels" down here and have always been dissapointed with the size of the rooms and attention to detail, the cost has always been double the price, so if you are having a short break here and want somewhere clean with a central location this is good value for money.

Tried to book this hotel but their computer system was down. Telephoned but they couldn't book by phone because ... the computer system was down. Suggested I try later. By the time I finally got to do the booking the following day, the price had gone up considerably. Was promised a really good room to "make up for the inconvenience". The room (402) was really small considering it was supposed to be a family room. The brand colour theme didn't extend to the curtains and the pull out extra bed which clashed completely with the purple. The bathroom was OK and clean. The duvet was about a 100 tog which for July was really heavy and hot and the bed sank in the centre so we both felt like we spent the night sleeping (or lying awake most of the time) on the lip of a volcano, trying not to fall into the crater. Every time someone came through the corridor doors our room door rattled, and the double glazing didn't keep out the seagull noise. We did get a discount of 25% on the car park next door which was great but the room itself was barely worth half what we paid.

I know being a Premier Inn you're supposed to get your money back if you didn't get a good night's sleep but I've had my fill of having to complain about things recently and just couldn't be bothered to argue about it. I think the least they could have done was charge the rate the room was when their system wouldn't accept the booking. There were other hotels cheaper that looked so much nicer but by the time we knew the price had gone up and tried to look elsewhere they had no rooms left. Will book further in advance in future and one of those other, cheaper and by the looks of it much nicer hotels.

Best points:
Good value for money
Friendly welcome with attentive staff
Triple glazing on my front of building room meant that the considerable traffic noise was reduced to perfectly acceptable level.
The air conditioning was a great feature in this downtown location with windows that would allow in noise if opened.
The onsite restaurant looked nice, although being downtown we didn’t use it. We did have a drink in the bar & found the staff friendly.
As before, very comfortable beds with pristine white linens.
As before, good standard of bathroom.
As before, security was impressive with card keys being needed to enter the main floor of bedrooms & room numbers not being repeated or displayed loudly in reception (having just had the reverse experience that I detail in another independent hotel review, this was particularly noted as sadly not being standard amongst hotels these days!). Top marks for this Premier Inn…I felt that this would be standard at Premier Inns in general, which is great.
Useful to have a dedicated free taxi telephone on the reception desk – one of our party needed to get to the nearby railway station with luggage.

The only drawback is if you do have a car, you will need to use the nearby NCP car park, with which Premier Inn have a negotiated rate.

I would definitely stay here again & thank you Premier Inn for bothering to solicit feedback, both at the property & via email after the stay.
