We had to book a room for Brighton last minute and found nothing under £250 for the night that was half decent. All that was left was horrendously extortionate hotels that had bad reviews. We found this hotel, it had half decent reviews and was under £150 for the night, including breakfast. The lady at check in was very nice and helpful, ordering us a taxi. We went over to the opposite block where we got a slightly musty whiff...and it didn't get any better. The room was clean but we had 2 single beds pushed together. The room was so boring with bland, sparse furniture and a very basic bathroom. We were heading straight out for the evening so didn't care too much.
Breakfast was in the main hotel and was lovely. Lots of cooked items for my husband and yoghurts, fruit and pastries for me! Again great staff.
We've stayed in one or two best westerns and are always disappointed! There is no attention to detail in the bedrooms, ever and they're always a let down. If you really don't care and want to just have somewhere to rest your head then don't let me put you off! It was clean. But I wish this hotel chain made just a bit more of an effort. Their hotels are usually in lovely buildings, but the interior does not, ever, match the exterior. Sorry, but as I've never ever been in the least bit impressed, this will be the last Best Western I book into!
