    Perfect sea view

    A weekend beak. Location of hotel is perfect. Sea view room looks straight out to sea. Big windows for the maximum view and enables you to see the see from laying in bed. Also a table and chair in the window for Morning coffee

    Ok - Not amazing probably wouldn’t go back

    Stay was ok but not sure if I’d go back, COVID restrictions probably didn’t help. We stayed mid June on the hottest day of the year in a sea facing room which was reasonably ok bit of dust in places lamp wardrobe etc bathroom is tired. Windows open aprox 4 inches which is not enough there is a ceiling fan above the bed. No hotel information pack so we didn’t know how to order room service. I called to reception asking if fans are available they weren’t. So I didn’t actually sleep atall. There is a beach bar across the road which is open till 2am, although that was reasonably quiet people leaving and shouting in the streets and chavs sat on the benches in front of the hotel at 4 AM playing music loud on a Bluetooth speaker didn’t help sleeping. Not particularly cheap 178.60 with breakfast and parking. Breakfast you had to book a time slot either 7AM or 9:45AM neither really suitable so we just turned up at 9 amd was seated. Staff are ok - not enough off them especially at breakfast

    Great stay at the Old Ship Hotel

    Good situation located right on the seafront of Brighton. Shame was I asked for a sea view room and definitely got a great view but didn’t account for the revellers outside the hotel at 2-3am in the morning

    Good stay, bad shower!

    The shower was so weak it made washing my hair very difficult! Other than that a good experience, very helpful staff. Some areas of the room and hotel were looking a bit tired, but that was to be expected given its age.

    I was told that this is the oldest hotel in Brighton, & you can definitely see that it has lots of character. It does need a bit of TLC however the history & character outweigh any negatives like that & I had a good nights sleep. Hopefully on my next visit I will be able to experience the bar & dining facilities.
