We booked this hotel at the last minute for a short break in Brighton. We had stayed at Ibis hotels in France in the past and their Brighton hotel follows the same formula. It is comparable to a Premier Travel Inn, but is cheaper. The fact that it is such good value makes it stand out in comparison to other hotels in Brighton which tend to be expensive (and judging by reviews on Trip Advisor), of variable quality.
The hotel is very new and is only a short walk from Brighton station. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The hotel - both the public areas and our room - was extremely clean. As others have mentioned, the bathroom is housed in a 'pod'. I could have done with a more powerful shower and found myself constantly adjusting its position in the hope of achieving a more forceful flow. The room was spacious and the beds comfortable.. There were tea/coffee making facilities and a TV with a wide range of Freeview channels. Considering that the hotel is located in a main road, we heard very little street noise during the night.
The breakfast buffet is quite varied. If I stayed again, I wouldn't bother to book breakfast but would go to one of the many small cafes in the local area. There are many interesting eating places in the streets.nearby with offering good-value breakfast menus, offering a great opportunity to support independent local businesses.
As another reviewer has picked up, the free Wi-Fi in the bedrooms is only for 24 hours. However you log in by name and not room, so two of us logged-in consecutively - but it seems a bit of an odd arrangement (if that how it really works).
What was even odder, was that when we asked whether we could leave our luggage between checking out and catching a train, we were told that it would cost £1 per item! I have stayed in lots of hotels and have never been asked to pay a charge for this service before.
