One night atay

The room was booked for a one night stay for a group of 3 friends and suited our needs perfectly.

It was a lot more spacious than the picture on the website showed, with 2 double beds and faced the beach. The en-suite was a small shower, sink and toilet, which was fine for us. As it does face the beach and is near the night life, possibly not suited for those who go to bed early/and/or need quite to fall asleep, but I'm sure asking for a room that doesn't face the beach is fine.

OK for one nights stay

We bought the room for one night through Laterooms in mid January 2014.

Price was OK but did not include breakfast, not really a problem though. Room was generally clean but smelt musty. Odd to have an on suite toilet and shower without a door. A bit embarrassing when going to the toilet with anyone else in the room. As the room was cheap we had a a back room overlooking the vent of the restaurant downstairs. With the window open all we could smell was cooking all night. Very convenient for central Brighton, parking nearby in Regency Square. Would only stay again if we could get a sea view (non smelly room).

Great location, terrible smell!

As soon as you enter this hotel there is an overpowering and pungent smell of ham.

It never goes away. We discovered towards the end of our stay it's due to the pig spit roast in the restaurant in the basement. This smell was so strong it came all the way up to our top floor room. Our room was very, very warm and stuffy, with the radiator completely off. The window opened only a few inches and didn't stay open (we had to prop it open with an object). Our room (301) was very badly laid out, it was difficult to fit around the beds and the toilet in the bathroom was plumbed in diagonally so as to provide just enough space to sit on it, the toilet water also filled up to the top of the toilet when flushed. One day, when we were in bed, a room service worker knocked on the door several times, we politely asked if he could not come in and said we didn't need the room cleaning; he came in anyway to find us in bed. We had a reasonably comfortable stay nonetheless. The guy on reception was efficient and pleasant and helpful. Nice range of dvds that the hotel provide for viewing in rooms.

Although I'm saying I wouldn't stay here again, nor recommend it to friends, it's not hideous and it was the cheapest option for a seafront hotel I could find and is ok to stay in.
