Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mrsirjohn Superb room but no sleep
There was no control of late might revelers disturbing the sleep of guests.
Through to 5am selfish young guests were allowed to shout in groups in the corridors.
Similarly, guests hailing taxis on the hotel forecourt were allowed to shout and behave badly.
Suggestions were made to the front desk on this matter.

We have stayed at this Hotel before and was very pleased all round, but how times change. The reception area is "tatty" and in sun light you can see where the varnish has worn off, not a good start. The room although tidy was very poor quality with green stains on the carpet wall paper hanging off the wall (damp?) and the furniture old worn chipped and the table wobbled. Bed was very hard. We went to a show and returned late, very disapointed not to be able to get some hot food on room service, last time we had hot a big let down. The menue took a bit of working out untill we relised the 24 in brackets ment, even your receptionist could not understand it or explain how it worked. The breakfast very good and restaurant staff very plesent and helpful. As a last nit-pick the parking was NOT secure as the barrier was stuck in the raised position during our stay.

Fantastic hotel. Location is 5 mins walk from the hub of Brighton. Right on the sea front, great for a quick walk. Hotel decor a little outdated but this is soon forgotten by the positives, location/ staff/ breakfast.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Blonay Expensive and uncomfortable step back in time
Booked at this hotel which talks of it's great sea front position. Why then was I put in a dark room at the back facing a brick wall? The room was extremely cold, the bathroom clean but very tired and dated, no hospitality products. No safe in the room, a must for travellers these days and the lighting was quite poor with no central light just two side lights which weren't great in such a dark room to start with. Having called housekeeping for some more quilts, a very pleasant man appeared and gave us blankets and tried to get the air conditioning to work. It didn't and as it was late we huddled under the blankets to get to sleep. We were moved in the morning when I spoke with reception about how cold and uncomfortable we had been and arrived to the fifth floor sea facing room which was much more appropriate frankly for the price we had paid in the first place. It was warm, comfortable with the lovely view of the front. The bathroom whilst still dated was clean. All was well until the next morning when we were woken by the frantic barking of a dog outside our door! I was utterly amazed to discover the hotel accepts animals. The dog barked and ran up and down the corridor for the next three quarters of a hour with absolutely no attempt by the owners to quieten it even after I opened the door and spoke to them.
Would not be tempted back to this hotel on my next visit to Brighton.

The walls are very thin so conversations could be heard from room next door. Breakfast was good, did not eat in hotel in the evenings. Rooms and corridors are tired and badly need refurbishment, not just a coat of paint. The door surrounds are damaged and need replacing. New carpeting also required, bit threadbare in the room and dirty in the corridors.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Davidm1956 Never again
Rims small and tired, and not well maintained, our bathroom had broken tiles,
Was shocked to find breakfast not included, was not told this at booking, found out when going for breakfast,
Reception staff. In the main not helpful, if not rude,
Charging for parking is again not explained when making booking,
£18 per night seams a bit excessive
Will not be staying agin at this or any other holiday inn
