we just arrived back fom 1 night at brighton i booked this hotel at the last minute and got a bargain £69.00 bb for 1 double room.
we arrived at 12 and asked the hotel if we could park in the car park and come back at 2pm to book in the lovely receptionist said we could book in there and then so booked in with parking by 12.15 parking was £15.00 from booking in till 11 am next day which for brighton is cheap.
we had got last minute tickets for lee evans at the brighton centre which is a short 5 minute walk away so perfect for evenings out we also walked up to the town to do some shopping again 5 minutes walk away.
the room was lovely and clean floor 4 and on probly worse day of this year so far the views across the sea front (from the side of hotel)was fab the sea was very rough and it was very windy the room was quiet cold but that suits us.
the bed was a double ,nice clean white bedding ,the room was clean and of a good size tea and coffee making facilties in the room a large wardrobe and a hair dryer (very usefull to dry our clothes as we got very wet out in the rain) the bathroom smelt as if it had just been decorated and was nice and clean,the shower was fine .
after the show we got back to hotel and had a drink at the bar which was good priced we went to our room the hotel was quiet and we was not distrubed at all .
we got up and went down to breakfast and was greeted by the lovely friendly staff asked if we would like juice and tea or coffee told to help ourselfs and also help ourselfs to cereal toast etc .the menu for breakfast was good we had pancakes with yogurt and fruit and full english the food was fab and the services was fantastic the staff asked if we would like more tea coffee or juice .
we really enjoyed our time at this hotel and will re book again

Friendly and efficient reception and bar staff. Superb location for Conference Center, Pier and Front. Paid alot of money for a Superior Room - fabulous outlook onto the sea front but room, basic for a Superior. Bathroom very shabby, windows dirty and double glazing terrible. Bed hard and sadly could hear the guests on the floor below who decided to come in drunk and shouting at 3am!
Didn't have breakfast so can't comment. Drinks at bar good and coffee really nice. £15 parking we thought very expensive when you could park for £14 for 24 hours in the multi storey not far away.

I would highly recommend this hotel. My husband and I stayed over the bank hol wend. Even though it was very busy on reception when we arrived, the chap serving could not have been more helpful. He helped us to get a parking space right outside, and even came out to move the cone for us! We were then allocated to a side sea view room (we hadn't booked a room with a view), it was adequate but had twin beds and only a shower with no bath. 5 mins later there was a knock at our door, and the same chap on recpetion had come up to find us and tell us he had found us a room at the forn for no extra charge! So we ended up with a gorgeous sea view room, much better (room 312). The rooms are a little tired, but are clean which is all that really matters. Extra touches such as some toiletires being provided would have been even better. One huge benefit is the location, 10 mins walk from the shops, and it is out of the noisy beachfront area, so you don't hear all of the bars and clubs emptying out! Breakfast was very good, and I would definitely stay here again. another

Room Tip: Front sea view rooms are the best

We arrived for a two night stay at the hotel on a last minute deal, the price was excellent, the service was extremely good and the hotel was spotless.

We didn't eat in the hotel other than the breakfast but that was a very good buffet continental breakfast with a freshly cooked english breakfast if you want it!

The rooms were spotless as was the hotel. The outside could do with a bit of a facelift but the sea air is not kind to paintwork!!!!

Overall it was a very good hotel in a great location, the only gripe I would have is that the cost of the parking but it is the same as going to the NCP so if you can get a space then it's handy having the car outside!

Would definitely go again if in the area!

Room Tip: Look for special deals on the Best Western website - we got 20% and breakfast included!

We stayed there with my partner for a two night stay in July. The location is fantastic, on the seafront, only a short walk from the town centre.
Our room was nice with a side sea view and a comfortable bed. Cleanliness was of a high standard. Breakfast was good too.
The hotel staff was polite, friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them.
After reading some reviews, we were not sure if we should stay....but we had a great time, enjoyed our stay and woud stay again.

Well positioned on the sea front and within easy walking distance of the lanes. The bathroom was a bit dated although perfectly clean but the bedroom was large with high ceilings and a great sea view plus huge tv. Staff were very helpful particularly at breakfast, by booking in advance and including breakfast you make a great saving.

Very impressed and will definitely return, We have had some bad experiences in the past in Brighton with over-priced, poor-quality b&b's so delighted to have found this little gem.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Brighton Hotel - The Grade II listed Brighton Hotel is one of the most charming hotels in Brighton where you are guaranteed a warm and personal welcome. It is located on the seafront directly opposite the famous Brighton Bandstand and very close to the West Pier and to the site of the proposed i360 attraction. We are just a short walk to Brighton's main shopping areas, the famous Lanes with its cobbled passage ways and its myriad of little shops and boutiques, many of which are unique to Brighton. The Brighton Conference Centre is a five minute stroll away and we are literally a stone's throw from the beach. The Brighton Hotel is a privately owned independent hotel that is large enough to have all the faculties you would expect but small enough to make you feel important to us and special. The hotel's elegant lounge, bar and restaurant have enviable sea views, a great place to relax and watch the world go by. The hotel has 55 well-appointed rooms, and while the hotel is right on the famous Brighton seafront it is just far enough out of the main centre's noisy bars and clubs to be significantly quieter than many other seafront Brighton hotels. High speed wireless internet access is available free of charge in all our rooms and public areas. As a 3 Star accredited hotel we offer dinner in The Salisbury Restaurant available 7 days a week from 6.30pm till 9.30pm and our Lite Bite Bar Menu is available 7 days a week 24 hrs a day. Arrival and Departure Time: Our check in time starts from 3 pm and our check out time is at 11 am. For an early check in or late check-out we charge £10 an hour. For peace of mind, our reception is manned 24 hrs. Cocktail Menu: Available Wednesday to Sunday from 5pm till 10pm. Room Service: Room Service is now available for Breakfast continental & Full English and we also offer a breakfast to go from 4am. We have limited parking in front of the hotel based on a first come, first serve policy. The guests can only book these spaces on arrival at reception. These spaces are sold for £18 per night. Therefore, if we run out of spaces, our guests can park in Regency Square Car Park which is just 3 minutes walking distance from us. Day rate for conference delegates is £9.00 And must be vacated by 17:00. Please note that Vans are not allowed to park in our car park due to size restrictions. Luxury Car Service For a little taste of luxury we can organise a private hire executive car to bring you to the hotel from your port of entry. The driver will meet you in arrivals of the appropriate terminal and deliver you straight to the hotel entrance. Prices start from around £140 from Heathrow Airport, £80 from Gatwick Airport and around £170 from St Pancras. To enquire about this service please contact the hotel directly with your arrival details (airport and terminal, arrival time and flight number or for Eurostar arrival time and your departure city along with your train number). Please note that transfers are not guaranteed until we confirm back to you and payment will be made direct to your driver and not to the hotel. ... more   less
