Positive Reviews

A Good Location

The position and sea views are splendid. The hotel is ideally located to enjoy Brighton's attractions. It provides an excellent breakfast, and guests benefit from free Wi-Fi connectivity.

Bedroom Comfort

The lovely, very clean rooms have extremely comfortable beds.

Good Staff Overall

The staff come in for almost universal praise, however one receptionist continued typing when she should have been checking in some new arrivals.

Negative Reviews

Worse Than Fawlty

Owing to a faulty room booking and entry system a couple were highly embarrassed to be walked in on by arriving guests whilst they were engaged in ensuring the continuance of the human race. Other guests found the rooms cold, and very dated in terms of fixtures and fittings, with no feeling of luxury. Guests comments that it is all looking a bit tired, the carpet at the end of the bed was almost worn through, and the bathroom at least 25 years old.

Food Woes

Breakfast was below standard, described as a shambles, with too many guests and not enough tables, everything was running out, there was a wait for replenishment “I was disappointed that when my husband asked for orange juice he was told that they had run out ”.

Send in the Renovators

Overall the impression of many guests is that the hotel is badly in need of renovating and re-vamping. There are cracked tiles on a bathroom floor. Some rooms are small with inadequate wardrobes. Guests described it as the worst hotel of this particular chain. The room entry system does not work properly, a serious fault. The threadbare carpets, gaps under the doors, and tired infrastructure spoil this hotel, a shame in view of its prime location. Guests who used a function room found staff thin on the ground.
