We didn't have a great stay. The bedroom was ok if a bit shabby - it doesn't take much to replace a broken plug or to replace something that's slightly worn and for me Five lacked that attention to detail - the ensuite bathroom was pretty poor. So the shower had ok pressure and there were a few almost fancy shower gels. I've seen better bathrooms in youth hostels. It was cramped and cheap. Didn't see any photos of your bathrooms on the website, Five, wonder why ? Main point of contention is that when we booked we specifically asked if there was much noise from the other rooms and were told no. Okay, so we expected seagulls in Brighton - no big surprises there and a bit of noise from traffic no problem but we ddn't expect paper thin walls - noise from the people walking around in the room above really travelled and the sound of the sliding doors on the bathrooms that are presumably standard was clearly heard. No noise from the other rooms ? An honest answer would have been appreciated and we would have saved ourselves some money on what I think is an overpriced b & b. Admittedly we got unlucky with the guy in the room next to us who was particularly noisy and Five did say that they were going to address that ( ie, ask him to check out ). However when we checked out I just got the impression that they weren't really taking on board my complaint and were just a tad defensive about it. Breakfast wasn't great - I found the whole experience a bit fussy - not much room on the communal table etc and our host could have taken a step back rather than constantly hovering around. The night we checked in I did tell Five that I was vegan - to be honest I don't really expect the response of someone telling me where the nearest co-op is ! To be fair Five did offer the next morning to get anything in that I might want but they didn't seem to go to a huge effort. Breakfast was poor - I'd like to know how you manage to cook mushrooms ( not exactly difficult ) so that they absolutely no flavour whatsoever.
