The hotel was lovely and the staff were very friendly and very helpful.
Would definitely stay again and it's at a great location.
Good for a 3 star.
clean and a great sea view.
A noisy road though.
Great room to look at, but hotel needs to invest in noise proof windows!
On entering the Hotel I was very happy with the staff and cleanliness of the foyer.
I was in my room in no time and first impressions were really good. I had a double room situated at the front of the hotel with a great view overlooking Brighton Eye. The room was spacious with nice décor and a really good shower room. The bed was comfortable and the room was cleaned to a high standard. Now the down side. There is a constant flow of traffic and people going passed the hotel which is fine if you have double glazed windows, however you could here every little noise as the windows offered no barrier at all. I could here every conversation and vehicle as they went by and by 2.00am I had enough and left the hotel. I would suggest that if you stop here either bring strong ear plugs or drink so much alcohol that you wouldn't here a earthquake (I'd go for the latter option).
good location clean basic room no parking available
our room was located right above the hotel nightclub it was riduculously noisy from 9pm til 3am we were offered a twin room instead of the double we booked in a different part of the hotel.
a friend staying in another area of the hotel was also kept awake most of the night. good clean basic hotel just be prepared for a restless night if you are staying on a friday or saturday night
A hotel with an identity crisis
The location of this hotel is without doubt exceptional however it's quite clear that this was once a run down establishment that has been bought up with the intent of making some kind of nightclub/ bar/ hotel and fails to some extent on at least two of these counts.
Having been to Brighton many times I have of course been on a night out in the Funky Fish and it is a good night out but having a hotel directly above is a push.
It's safe to say the reception which backs directly onto the deserted dancefloor of the empty bar (with full DJ and light setup) was a strange welcome to say the least. It felt like we were checking into a dirty stop out motel attached to a nightclub rather than an established hotel. When entering the room we were hit with ice cold air in the room which is primarily due to the single glazed windows (on the seafront!) and the unluckily gale force weather we were having but also the fact that there was only one radiator in the room, much too far from the windows to have any impact. Otherwise though, the room was nice though clearly recently done up from a state of disrepair and the bathroom clearly showed the age and wear & tear. At night, of course, is where the fun begins where music is pumped outside the Funky Fish (for the smokers seemingly) but does create a nice din of bass coming through that single glaze. This was, however, expected as other reviews made that quite clear and you can't stay above a club without a bit of that so be ready if you're a light sleeper. Having said all this the location still wins a lot of battles so would still stay again and recommend but ONLY if it was a group of lads who cared a little less about home comforts/ spent very little time in their room outside of drunken pass outs without any need for the Brighton Brawl for cabs on a Saturday night. Just make sure you know what you're looking for when you book is my advice.
