They have thought of everything
They have thought about everything: it's clean, got a microwave and kettle, shampoo, bedside lights, even simple to use Wi-Fi code. And of course the position, so close to the sea, is great.

Good clean hotel
This was a lovely stay and a great location. Sometimes it is hard to get hold of staff on the telephone but if you walk about the hotel, you will find them. I would stay again.

6/10 Good

Not great but not the worst place I have stayed
When we arrived we were met by a nice chap who showed us to a basement room. The room was basic and clean (with exception of a dirty microwave). We also had French doors to a tiny courtyard; it was a shame this wasn’t set up as a useable space. The WiFi in the room was intermittent on one mobile and non existent on another. We could not ring out or receive incoming calls. We discussed with owners who linked us to another WiFi which worked perfectly until a few hours later BT were due but didn’t turn up so someone started faffing about which left us with no internet at all for majority of our stay. Not that we are obsessed with WiFi access but on this occasion for a couple of reasons we could have really done with it. One morning my partner popped out and came back but forgot to lock the door.. a random member of staff walked in on us in bed… he later informed us he should have gone the room next door.. we were not impressed.. he did apologise but feel he should know what is going on in what room! Parking - I was worried about not booking prior, but my partner was confident we could sort out when we arrived.. he opted to park on the see front and paid via an app which allowed us to extend if we needed to.. it was about £36 for 48 hours. This worked for us as the car was a two minute walk from hotel. All in all, I don’t think I’d come back to Brighton for a little getaway, I’d definitely look at alternative seaside towns.

4/10 Fair

Not as described on site!
This place is not as described - it is listed as a 3-star hotel, it is in fact an unmanaged guesthouse. There are no staff working at the property, apart from the housekeeper who checked me in. I specifically booked this place because the listing said they had luggage storage - as I was going to a conference I needed to store my luggage there during the day - this turned out to be untrue and I was sent kind of aggressive uppercase emails right before the trip saying I would have to pay some other business to hold my luggage. In a panic I rang up and that person said I could leave my luggage, but then I got 2 more emails saying I couldn't. In the end, I had to pay money to have another hotel look after my luggage, despite that being one of the reasons I booked this place. The place was a bit shabby - I was up on the 3rd floor and the stairs up is sloped and haphazard - it wouldn't be suitable for somebody with limited mobility. The floor of my room was also at like a 15' angle. The room was not entirely clean; There were hairs in my bed and in the bathroom and there was dust in the corners of the carpet. I would have asked to be moved to a new room when I found the hairs in my bed, except there was no staff to even ask. For the price I paid for this I expected a 3 star hotel (as described on the website)- what I got was 1-star guesthouse, that I would definitely not return to.
