  • Perfect location for the lanes and comfortable hotel. The reception staff were friendly and receptionists were pleasant and helpful. The room was very clean and breakfast was Amazing.

    Tired decor & and not worth the price. Dirty, noisy, poor service and window screwed shut. The regulation rotary toaster needs replacing, far too slow and two small triangles of bread and a spoonful of beans.

  • Facilities and location fantastic, good value, the staff very very friendly and helpful. Reasonable price per room and great breakfast. Plenty of fresh fruit and juices.

    S an old hotel, the car park charge at 15 per night is totally unreasonable and the windows do not fit that well, not a problem we are at least overlooking the sea. Worse custome service i have ever received.

  • Several small comfortable seating areas, easy connection to train station and the breakfast was worth the stay all fresh help yourself. Staff were friendly and helpful, shower was lovely, the service was great the food well served.

    No sea view opposite a noisy bar and car park charge is unreasonable. The place is awful and the dark tired room has seen better days and is in dire need of complete redecoration.

  • Good situation on seafront, underground carpark available too and our room was sea facing and clean and tidy. The hotel location was great, staff were friendly and helpfull, the receptionist assured me was quiet. Bed was very comfortable and curtains kept out the light well. The breakfast was superb.

    Decor was tired and old, the price of the parking was too expensive and would put us off Booked another weekend here, the service was even worse. Windows were filthy on the inside.

  • The location is excellent, the price is quite good compared to other car parks in Brighton and on the sea front just a few minutes walk to the pier. Great staff service at reception made us feel welcome we arrived and breakfast manageress Gillian is quite wonderful.

    Poor signs within hotel, incredible cold room and the bar is overpiced, seriously overpriced.
