Lovely Hotel
Pauline D

Stayed in this lovely hotel last weekend. Adjacent to ‘The Lanes’ & within easy reach of the i360 & The Pier etc., Hotel staff are very pleasant & welcoming, room was quite small but very clean. Downside was having a sea view & being at the front it was a bit noisy at night but they do supply you with earplugs!!
Breakfast was delicious & catered for all tastes.
Would definitely stay here again.

Lovely hotel in a perfect location

Thank you to all the staff for giving my family a wonderful birthday weekend. The hotel was spotless, the food was delicious and the birthday treats a very kind gesture. A special thank you to Elena for organising it. They would definitely stay here again if they return to Brighton.

Excellent service perfect location

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed here all the staff are very professional and nothing to much trouble to accommodate us on our morning of arrival we were earlier than expected and was told our room wouldn't be ready until 3pm ???????? we were so shattered after a long flight and time difference all we wanted was to check in and sleep so we waited in the lounge which is spectacular the views of Brighton pier and so comfortable and relaxing and in all fairness they got our room ready by 11:30 thank you so much ???????? much appreciated I think David was the gentleman who helped to sort out everything very understanding and a credit to the old ship
The room was just perfect and comfortable and the bed !! we slept like a log lovely crisp clean white bedding spotlessly clean
And the breakfast everything you wanted full English pastry ect
And the staff very helpful
Will be returning next month with our friends for couple night and they like us are looking forward to our stay
