The two of us stayed in Belize for a weekend. The location in Brighton is good; the underground carpark in the Square outside very convenient; the bar attractive and the reception staff friendly and keen to help. Nice little period features like the wooden lift. But the stylish room is brilliant: like a flat, with big bed, big sofa, jacuzzi (not the strongest bubbles in the world though), and sauna we didn't use as it involved too much planning to heat it up in advance. Put in a small kitchen and you could live in it. Room service for us was prompt. A great treat to ourselves.

Impressed with the whole of our stay, great welcome, sparkling clean rooms, excellent breakfast with a wide choice. Staff all very helpful. Well positioned and very close to the beach. Would highly recommend.

From when my wife phoned to make the booking to after we checked out, the staff there were brilliant. The room was great, remember this is a boutique hotel, so do not expect a huge amount of space, but they way they use it is admirable. The bar was great, they way they accommodated our two kids was brilliant, the recommendation as to where to eat, what to do in the day, advice on car parking, where to go and what to do in Brighton as well as looking after our cases once we had checked out. We have stayed in Brighton before, the last time was over five years ago and we are used to great service in the town, and while we have not been disappointed in the past this place has been the best so far, and considering the competition it faces, I think that has to be considered as well. When we return to Brighton, even though we have had great experiences in other the places we have stayed, I suspect this will be the first place that we will call.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Una for our anniversary. Some very good points to raise, and some not so good.

We stayed in Belize which is £250 per night on week nights. This being the case, I did think it is a little bit cheeky that the check in time is 3pm and check out is 11.30am leaving less than 24 hours per night in the room itself. On check in, £50 is deducted from your account as security which is absolutely fine, but should be something which is mentioned on booking.

The room itself was lovely - the bed was one of the comfiest I have slept in, the bathroom and especially shower were lovely. The sauna was good though we didn't really use it. The TV and seating area was good (though a bit of a pain there is no access to the DVD library in the room itself), the outside space looked nice and the jacuzzi was amazing. The location is really good, and the staff were generally friendly. I also really enjoyed the breakfast which was lovely.

The down side was that, given the amount paid, some of the service was not great. Room service is offered but there is no menu which makes it difficult to access. We were able to access it via WIFI (you have to phone for the password as it's not left in the room). On calling to request cocktails sent to our room, the wait was about 20 minutes per order. At one point, we called to request a cocktail to be told that they were too busy and they would call us back. Ten minutes later, we were called back and a further 20 minutes later the cocktail arrived. It's a small point, but as this hotel is supposed to be the best in Brighton and charges a fairly hefty fee for a stay in their suite rooms, I expected to be treated a little more courteously. I will say the cocktails were very nice when they did arrive.

I would return, but cautiously.

Room Tip: Belize was a lovely room.

We stayed in this hotel for our anniversary. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and our bed was very comfy. Great location. Close to the beach and town centre. They recommended us Italian restaurant close by and the food was great. Breakfast in the room - delivered on time and tasty. Regarding to the car park - Brighton is nightmare. But there is public car park underneath the square. Still relatively cheap for Brighton. I would definitely recommend this place.

We've stayed in many hotels in Brighton and Hotel Una deserves to be no 1. The rooms are very clean, nicely designed and have a lot of extra little touches. We stayed in room Danube which is overlooking the square and has its own private balcony. The bed is super comfy and the bath tub next to the window is a real treat. The staff is great, recommended and booked restaurant for us ( thanks Paul!) and in the morning we enjoyed our breakfast in bed ( without extra charge). The only little thing to mention is that it would have been nice if the hotel had its own restaurant! We will be back soon.

We stayed for two nights and were looking forward to a luxury weekend and according to the previous reviews that's what we were going to get.we were wrong.
Room was ok clean and tidy but for 235 a night it's nothing different or special than a premier inn. Bath had been painted and was chipped , the kettle and tea making facilities were dire to say the least we didn't have enough sugar for two cups of tea and had to call reception who gave us three more sachets of sugar (generous!!!) the kettle was very old looked like it was from the 60s. I went to the local costa for a cup of tea as I was gasping. Breakfast was cold both days and had lukewarm pots of coffee. Warning in bathroom telling us not to take the hand wash (tacky). Above all there was no room service menu so you have to call down to ask what they have which the reply is well what do u want ? Very odd way of working and very uncomfortable for the guest and having no clue how much things cost so that's a nice surprise at the end of your stay . This hotel is overpriced for what you get you Get.you Have to add an extra 50 fee when u arrive which you get back 8 days later if u don't have room service.just pure greed after you have paid over 500 for 2 nights . My partner was shocked to discover yellow stains inside the pillow cases. I've added photo. I will be staying in travel inn next time half the price same service . I will add that the cocktail bar is a real asset and the staff there were fantastic with amazing cocktails and the bath was huge apart from being painted and chipped.its just an over priced over rated hotel in our opinion. I'm sure some of the other rooms are probably nicer than the one we stayed in but that should reflect in the price. Disappointing
