“Very comfortable stay at Greys”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

My husband and I stayed at Greys for 2 nights over the Brighton marathon weekend in April. Terry and Jamie were both very friendly and welcoming. Greys is in a quiet street near the main seafront and within walking distance of most of the attractions including the Pier, Pavilion, Museum and The Lanes shopping area. Our standard room with en-suite shower was compact which we expected, very clean throughout and quiet for a good nights sleep. The breakfasts were excellent and food quality was very high, and an earlier breakfast was organised for the runners on the morning of the marathon. If we return to Brighton in the future we would definitely like to stay at Greys again.

My fiancé booked this hotel for a 2 night stay from 11-13th April. We arrived slightly later than expected, however were greeted with a friendly host who upgraded us to a superior room. Our host gave us a map and highlighted the main hotspots to find restaurants and cafes in.

Our room was superb; we could see the sea from our window, there was a plush carpet, spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, bathrobes, mini-fridge, water, complimentary biscuits and my favourite part - a coffee machine which I really appreciated!!

The hotel is located in a peaceful street, just a short distance from the seafront and a cheap taxi ride to the popular pubs in the city (we walked this with no bother through the day- however I was wearing heels in the evening).

Breakfast was served in beautifully decorated room with lots of nice natural light flowing through. A great selection of pastries, cereals, fruit, yoghurt and juices were available, as well as a great selection of hot breakfast items such as omelettes, eggs benedict, full English breakfast.

If we were to return to Brighton, we would definitely stay here again!

We returned to Brighton for our yearly trip, and didn't even try to find another hotel. Grey's has always been our top choice of hotels in Brighton, and we only wish we could bring it along to other cities around the world. We arrived very late on a monday night and was greeted by the owner at the front door. Terry is the perfect host, and together with Jamie they are the main reason we always return to Grey's. We could also mention the superb more-than-full English breakfast, the gorgeous rooms with spotless bathrooms, or the general luxurious feeling to the place. But above all, it is the staff who is the one ingredient which makes one feel at home away from home. How wonderful to experience a staff that takes nothing for granted, and gives you, year after year, not only the highest value for money, but simply the highest value!

Room Tip: Choose one of the large rooms at the front!

We had a long weekend planned in Brighton and stayed for three nights here. First thing was the welcome; a relaxed check in and then we were led to our room which had been upgraded from what we booked. Good start. Lovely rooms too, clean with contemporary furniture and up to date facilities. Staff were helpful and engaging without being overly familiar or nosey. Guy that showed us to our room carefully and diplomatically guided us away from one restaurant we mentioned we had booked and recommended another - we picked up on the hint and had a brilliant meal where he recommended. Breakfast here is a treat. Freshly cooked to order full English with local produce, smoked salmon and bagels with eggs, warm croissants, it was all great and I am pretty fussy when it comes to good breakfasts. Ideal place in terms of location with loads of places to eat and all of Brighton in walking distance. When we return to Brighton we will be coming back to Grey's for sure.

We had a nice couple of days in Brighton at Greys. Great location, lovely hospitality (Jamie), good breakfast. Our room (on top floor) was smaller than I'd hoped. Slept well, but the (very small) bathroom could do with a bit of a spruce up. Would go back, but would make sure we didn't have the same room. So overall not a great room/rate ratio.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms very small.

Made a spur of the moment trip to Brighton on a sunny weekend with a couple of friends and this hotel was a great find. With a price that seems normal for Brighton we started our experience with great very personable service from the manager that sets you up greatly. The room was small but perfect for our needs, very clean, well furnished with loads of nice touches (expensive coffee machine, kitkats, luxury soaps). The bed was very comfortable and the towels extremely plush. If we had one wish it would have been for a bit more pressure in the shower, but that's hard to achieve in a period building. Breakfast was outstanding - very high quality produce perfectly cooked. We would highly recommend.
