I stayed here for work recently and it was a great visit. The hotel is spacious and clean. The room had everything I needed and a great view of the town. The breakfast was good too. Highly recommended.

I stayed for one night on business and didn't really think the hotel was that great. I was given room 10 which was right next to the lift which was clearly audible when in use which was annoying. I asked for a seafront room and the receptionist just dimply said' no, they are all taken'. No offer to change my room. Fair enough I can deal with that. Some construction going on on the first floor with builders material on show on the first floor which didn't look great. My bed was comfortable, spacious room but in need of some attention, just looked a bit tired. Lots of dusty dried flowers everywhere or false green plants which just further cheapen the hotel.

I ordered the scallops in the restaurant which were a special and they were nice,albeit they were drowned in 'pea velouté' and served with soggy black pudding. For my main course I ordered belly pork and it wasn't great. Undercooked skin and piles of it. Served with some crackling but I wanted a well cooked piece of belly pork....I didn't get that. I was hungry and tired so I ate what I could of what looked like a basic meal set up...big chunks of carrot and few heads of broccoli with a huge amount of pork and some lost dauphinoise potatoes. I just didn't enjoy the meal. The restaurant is also very basic decor wise, no table cloths on the tables or flowers as advertised and the one waiter who was working had a really loud voice so when he was talking to a colleague who was sat in the restaurant everyone could hear them and whilst working away he would carry on talking to her from a distance, as if no one else existed.

I noted a lot of people smoking outside the front door and the smoke was present in the reception area which wasn't pleasant.
A very average hotel.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights in February. The hotel is well located for the centre of Hove and for the beach which is only a few steps away.
We found the room comfortable and breakfast was just right. Our window was not sea facing but the view was still good and there was no annoying traffic noise.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea front room

Excellent value and good location opposite seafront. Good food, clean room, comfortable bed. Limited on-site parking so difficult to find a space at weekend. We had to leave our car at our daughter's flat 2 streets away.

Booked this hotel as it had good reviews and was reasonably priced for a brighton/hove hotel. Upon getting to hotel we tried to get into the car park at the rear of the hotel. However the access to the car park gets gradually narrower and we almost got wedged! There is a car park on the seafront across the road from the hotel which we used instead. The staff were friendly and the hotel was as you would expect from a three star hotel - relatively basic but and a little dated but clean. i would stay there again in future.

Great hotel, immaculately clean rooms, great prices for the rooms and the staff are very friendly and happy to help,
About as good as it gets in Brighton. :)

It's just having a new fire alarm installed so keep that in mind but even that was only obvious when pointed out by the manager, we stayed in the family rooms as that's all they had left and wow are they big... One room had 4 beds in lol

Thanks for an amazing stay that saved our weekend! We will return ;)

This hotel doesn't look much from the outside. But inside its lovely, rooms have been recently redecorated all new carpets bedding etc.
Service and all staff very helpful and friendly, breakfast was lovely, overall brilliant stay can not fault the hotel at all.
The location is abit out of the way, free phone on reception to call a taxi though which is usually there by the time you put the phone down! Costs about £6 to get dropped in the lanes.
Would defiantly stay here again and highly recommend
