My boyfriend took me to Brighton for a little birthday break and we stayed at this hotel. He had decided to book a hotel out of the hum drum of activity so chose the marina as a good location.
We drove there and found the entrance eventually although it wasn't very well signposted once we entered the car park. The lift lobby up to the reception area was tired and not welcoming at all. I did wonder if we were in the correct place. We checked in and were greeted by a very friendly lady who gave us our room key and told us about the breakfast options.
The rooms were of a good size but that was all it had going for it. The room furniture was very cheap and tacky looking and just didn't work with the room. It was a space saving clothes rail, TV stand, chest of drawers and desk suspended on floor to ceiling poles. There was absolutely no reason they couldn't have put in proper furniture.
The bed mattress was of poor quality as was the bedding although we were given lots of pillow. The bathroom was of a marine theme but wasn't anything to write home about. The flooring had not been laid poorly and the tiles needed replacing already for what looked like a newish build.
The walls are also paper thin. I've been in many many hotels as I travel for work and never have I been able to hear a conversation so clearly from the neighbouring room. You could even tell what program was on the TV.
It seems that the whole of the hotel has been built and furnished on the cheap but the price tag for a 1 night Saturday stay without a view was £150. The rate didn't even include breakfast. I was actually glad to leave and I won't be returning. It's not worth the money. If I wanted something of similar quality I'll go to a Premier Inn.
