Booked this for a weekend away with some friends. Parking was free in a multi story car park a 2 minute walk from the hotel.
Initial impressions of the hotel were good, the staff were very polite and the reception was clean tidy and well presented. We were booked into our rooms very quickly and were on our way. Halls were clean and modern with modern pictures.
We had a kind size room, the room was a great size, the only wierd thing was the whole wardrobe/storage situation. Essentially what they had done was buy a job lot of the rail systems you buy with B&Q modular bedroom furniture and put that in the room without the sides, doors etc. I can kind of understand why they did it, they are easily removable and make a room look bigger, but it was just a bit wierd looking at your clothes hung up all the time.
Bathroom was excellent, 2 sinks, bath, with a great over the head shower and plenty of hot water, it was very clean and tidy.
The bed was massive, and very comfortable, i have a dodgy back and if the bed is bad, will be in pain the next morning, but no pain here. They put a simple duvet on the bed so no stupid sheets everywhere.
TV: usual freeview channels!
Breakfast was a both continental and cooked, a good choice of food on offer and the cooked was made fresh for you with a couple of choices of sausage and eggs cooked to your choice. 5 or 6 different juice options. different pastries, cerials, breads etc.
The bar was very nice, over looking over the marina, and for a hotel the prices were reasonable, for 4 shots and mixers it came to £18. The atmosphere was very nice and again the staff were very polite and friendly.
Location : the Marina is about a mile from the pier. options to get into town consist of taxi or the number 7 bus which leaves just round the corner from the hotel, £4.50 gets you an all day pass on the bus to come and go as you please. Obviously you can walk along the front if the weather is nice, I guess it would take 20 minutes or so to walk to the pier, Weather permitting
Below the hotel are a number of restarants and bars, Italian, American, Indian, most options are there along with a nice wetherspoons bar, Just round the corner there's a casino, a pizza hut and for those with no taste buds, a McDonalds. there's also a bowling alley and cinema. Across the road there's a supermarket., a Harvester and some other shops. So there's no need to leave the marina if you don't want to at night, plenty of things to do, and places to eat.
Overall a very nice Hotel, with excellent staff and very clean. the storage thing was wierd, and having to get a bus or taxi into the town was a slight downside for location, but the free parking offset that. Parking is very expensive in Brighton!!!!!
I'd definately stay there again, and would recommend it to anyone.
