Amazing, amazing, other hoteliers take note! This is what customer service is all about and everything is as described and better!! Can't wait to go back, we had room 3 and the view was spectacular, didn't want to leave.

I booked A Room With a View as part of a surprise trip to Brighton for my boyfriends birthday. The hotel on arrival looked modern and stylish especially compared to some of the other more tired looking hotels on the seafront. The man who checked us in was so nice and helpful and from on then was always happy to help and friendly. Our room whilst quite small (but fine for the two of us) was excellent, had an amazing view of the sea and pier, modern, clean and the best shower/wet room ever! Our bed was large and comfortable - we did wake up briefly in the night as we could hear the people above us walking around but no big issue. The breakfast the next day was really good - nice selection of cereal, pastries and the choice of cooked breakfasts. Location was great and we stumbled upon a great pub 'The Black Dove' just round the back. Will definitely stay there again next time we come to Brighton.

The hotel was immaculate!! Lots of lovely little extras that make it feel luxurious. Would definitely stay here again. We stayed in room 6 (oak room) and it was lovely. chocolates, biscuits, galaxy hot chocolate drinks..... Lovely bath robes and toiletries. The bath is to die for!!!! I'm heavily pregnant and still had ample room to float about in it!!! Only downside was a bunch of people hanging about outside making lots of noise, but it's to be expecting staying so close to town.

We stayed in the hotel for 4 nights. This is our first time in Brighton and we were lucky to make deffinilty the best choice of the hotel! It was a real delight! We want to give our maximum for all point: exterior, interior, breakfast, service, clearness, comfort, bed, pillows, bathroom, amazing view and etc. we want to thank Stephen and John for making their job with such a professionalism and kindness. Next time when we will come to Brighton - A room with a view will be the only option for us. Strongly recommend!

We stayed for 1 night in April as a surprise birthday treat from my husband - and what a treat! We stayed in the Oak Room and it was absolutely beautiful and as the name states - it was a room with a view! I think I could have sat there for hours just watching the sea and the world go by!

The whole place is done to such a high standard, and absolutely spotless. I understand that all the rooms have a view due to it being on the end of a terrace, but obvioulsy the rooms at the front have a panoramic view with the three windows in the bay. Lovely finishing touches such as toiletries, bath robes, coffee machine in the room with a selection coffee and teas and the bed was so comfortable with high quality bed linen.

Free parking at the front was great and the breakfast with cereals, pastries and fruit to start with and then a choice of hot freshly cooked breakfast after was delicious.

My husband nearly booked Drakes next door, but I am so glad he didn't as I really can't see how you can justify the extra costs of Drakes and that's not including the extras they charge.

Obviously being on the seafront there is road noise especially as the sash windows are single glazed but that didn't really bother us.

You will not be disappointed if you stay here!
