“Oh Dear”
Reviewed October 28, 2011

Very disappointing. No space to walk between the bedside and adjacent wall.Not possible to sit on the side of the bed before your knees bump into the wall. My wife thought that was a smell of urine on the carpet. I didn't pick this up myself must it was musty.
The television was interesting placed near the ceiling.No button to alter the volume (there was a space where it should have been) No working remote control. Interesting extension lead arrangment.
Shower room and toilet compact. Just enough compactness for me to turn around. For those interested in the enconomical use of space, it might be possible to shower, use the toilet and wash your hands in one movement. Bring rust remover for basin rack.
I'm afaid we found the breakfast times too restrictive so missed out. Although booked in for two nights we could only manage one. Found somewhere else.
We will not be visiting again.

Staying in Brighton is great, it is a lovely city and as a starting point for the Goodwood Festival of Speed it is ideally situated.
But finding the right hotel or B&B proves to be very difficult.
Advertising on the internet can obviously win you customers but any repeat business goes out the window if you ar the Marine View Hotel.
What a big disappointment. This "thing" is old, dusty, dirty, cramped, noisy and making matters worse of a service standard that would make Fawlty Towers look like a five star resort.
Who in his right mind serves breakfast from 9 AM till 10 AM only and makes guest wait for 20 minutes (because they are 'early') before bringing milk so you can at least get some cereals.
Our advice (after having spent two nights here in two rooms, paying a whopping 330 GBP): STAY AWAY!

Room Tip: Just stay away from this place

It is a nice comfortable place to stay. Very valuable choice. The top floor room which i lived for tow night is tidy and comfortable, and through the window I really enjoy to see the bright pier and very nice view for the sea. Location is good with a very short distant to seafront.

The staff are friendly, helpful and very polite.

The hotel make me like stay at home, so relax and enjoy.

Room Tip: Top floor room-Room 9 has a nice view

Very good value for money if you don't mind sharing a toilet and a shower cabinet in the corner of your room.
Location is perfect and very pretty.
The staff are extremely service minded, the breakfast excellent and it's all very clean and tidy and quiet and safe.
I will be back.

I stayed in this hotel and just want to tell people to not bother. The hotel manager 'Richard' is a truly vile man. The rooms are small. The staff are rude. There were pubic hairs in my en-suite but other than that the cleanliness was ok. I had breakfast on the first morning and had to immediately go elsewhere to eat due to the small portions. I did also wonder whether there pet dog helped them cook it. All I can say is, if youre going to Brighton, go to another hotel, god knows there are enough of them.

I went here for my anniversary and was suprised how nice the room was as the pictures do not do the rooms justice (orange room???) room very small for a double!
The room was very cold but we did tell the owner of the hotel and he put the heating on for us. Although it was an ensuite the bathroom was very small.
I did request a vegetarian breakfast but was only given one quorn sausage, breakfast very small one sausage one bacon, good for the diet.
i would not bother staying there again.
