        • Older travelers

          Receptionist was very helpful regarding alternative parking arrangements and quick to offer room upgrading with a splendid settee view over the sea. The upgrading of the accommodation was impressive in view of the age of the buiding and the sloping character floors!

          Lack of parking on site.

          Friendly staff. Excellent location. Keen pricing.

          Fittings and furnishings clearly need refurbishment.Stained carpets in the bedroom in particular was unpleasant.

        • Single

          Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Always enjoyable to stay there.

          The maid came to clean my room at 10am the day I was checking out - you have to check out before 11am. They should inform the maids about the rooms that are being checked-out-of each day and wait until after guests leave.

          Lovely view of the beach. Breakfast was very nice also and the staff were lovely

          Very old fashioned decor in the rooms. Not very romantic

          Hotel location was good for me, room was clean tidy and comfortable.

          Hotel was very noisey and rooms were poorly insulated.

          Staff and location Breakfast Bed was comfortable

          Very cramped room which was badly in need of updating although this was better than the first room we were shown which was a tiny basement room. Although the room was clean the carpet was badly stained

          • Average rating
        • Couple

          Staff were friendly and helpful.

          Despite claiming to have been recently renovated, it's basically a faded seaside hotel. The bathroom was tiny, and the furnishings cheap. Breakfasts were variable, the bacon was fairly good quality but the scrambled eggs were dry and inedible. We'd have got better value from a B&B.

          Location, restaurant

          Windows need updating, if they spent the money they wasted on overheating the building on windows it would be good. Parking on sea front or car park 5 mins away.

        • Older travelers

          Great value for money and a good location. Breakfast was excellent hot food was brought to you rather than having to select from a buffet.

          Room very hot on arrival, had to switch off radiator and leave window open

        • Couple

          The cooked breakfast was nice. The location overlooked the sea front and not far from the pier and town centre.

          The room was on the small side for a superior room. The lift was broken the whole time we were there and we were on the top floor. The staff were not willing to help us when we required it. It was a cold and draughty room. The hotel does not provide any light snacks, only expensive drinks!

        • Older travelers

          We had a pleasant time at the Brighton Hotel. The location was good, the staff friendly and helpful, rooms were very clean and the breakfast was excellent. I would stay there again - it was excellent value for money.

        • Group of friends

          The staff were exceptionally friendly. The breakfast was excellent with a great varied assortment to choose from.

          Due to the age of the building some of the floors and stairs are a little uneven.

        • Older travelers

          The cleaniness and staff were brill.

          The bed it self wasn't very comfortable, but for the price it was an excellant few days.
