Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Brighton Stay
An upgrade from standard to an Ex room located next to lift!
The room was noise and due to the bad weather not very quite.
This is my second stay this month, and although I would stay again a room around the back away from the sea front is a must.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by hotmail good location spoilt by smell of paint from refurbishment
as above. Poor smell of paint kept me awake but there was no option left/offered as no other rooms available either.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NotMisterH Dark room, terrifying car park
Stayed for a Saturday night and can't fault the price, staff, or room. The room in particular, actually, was excellent thanks to a sea view and fantastically dark curtains that meant we weren't awoken at the crack of dawn. The hotel does benefit from having a (not cheap) car park too which in Brighton is a major plus point. That said, the car parking experience was mildly traumatic as the spaces are far too narrow for modern cars and quite a few are reserved for another building's use. This led to a number of aborted attempts to squeeze into gaps that were fractions of an inch away from taking off slices of my car before finally finding something just about workable. However, other than the cold sweat from parking everything else was just great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Douglas73 Meeting Stay
I appreciate the hotel is in need of refurbishment, but it is clear given the corridors and bedrooms update thus far that this is in progress.
I found the staff to be very attentive and anticipated my needs at front desk and in the restaurant.
The meeting rooms were very tired and are in need of refurbishment also.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Marg28 Desperate need of renovation!
The best thing about this hotel is the location, which is perfect - right on the seafront by the old pier. However, the room we had was such a disappointment when compared with other hotels of a similar calibre in Brighton. Shabby decor and lampshades falling apart at the seams (literally) are not what you expect for the price per night - we had a choice of 2 hotels and sadly we chose the wrong one!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DA28 Will not stay again until refurbishment is completed!
The place is looking really tatty now. For a Holiday Inn, it is really shocking they let it deteriorate to that level. They have started refurbishment and quite honestly for their prices it is not worth going back until it is completed. Don't get me wrong we love it there as the location is fantastic, the sea views beautiful and the staff are nice but their standards have slipped.
The breakfast room service is consistently inconsistent. Each morning they forgot something. Either the ketchup, range of pastries, tomato or something. Out of 5 breakfasts only two provided all that was expected from the menu. Even though I brought it to their attention it did not improve when we stayed again 2 weeks later.
The wifi is so bad it is embarrassing and they shouldn't advertise it is available until the refurb is complete and it is better quality.
Yes we will stay their again but not until the refurbishment is complete and the wifi at a quality you can actually rely on.
