Nice Staff but a terrible and dirty hotel

I am not one to leave reviews, but the rooms in this place were so bad that i felt inclined to do so.

Cigarette butts under the radiator, carpets that don't fit the room, wall paper peeling off the walls, pubic hair on the soap dish, sheets with stains.... nothing good to say about the place. However the staff were very friendly and helpful, but that doesn't make up for the dismal hotel

Dated, shabby, overpriced, poorly run

The place is being run into the ground, it's hardly kept up, the carpets and walls are falling apart.

My room was cold, the telly small and with poor reception, the wifi was so slow it may as well not have been there. The receptionist took an age to check me in then sent me to the wrong floor. Appalling place.

It is not the 3 star hotel it is a cheapest hostel!

The stay was very very bad.we paid 200 paunds for 2 nights and we get for this money broken air conditioning, dirty towels, smell of paint.

The back after the bed was hurting all day. Staff in this hotel are very rude and unpopulated. If you want to have a nice quiet and relaxing holiday it is not the right place to stay. It was the worst experience I ever had.

Don't be tempted by the good location...

Bedsheets were dirty on arrival and the whole bedroom had the distinct smell of the toilet in the attached bathroom.

Paid for a searoom view but the scaffolding blocked the view. Other than that it was fine until 7am on Saturday morning when workmen started work loudly right outside our window for two hours. I would recommend staying anywhere else in Brighton.

Looking for no frills and central then look no more.

The hotel is in fantastic location for a Brighton stay.

2mins from central pier and beech and 3 mins from the shops/lanes. The hotel is fairly tiered but you are not paying 5 star prices. Breakfast was also OK and did the job!

Right place, right time

We needed somewhere to crash after a gig.

Great location.Small room but we weren't expecting more. Only disappointing thing was the cathode ray TV - hey guys, your Internet connection was great, the TV just takes up space in a small room and a couple of usb ports would be welcome. Staff (desk & bar) friendly and helpful. Lift is bit asthmatic so travel light or be patient. Reliably informed by my other half that other rooms are fabulous - she uses it for business - so maybe next time ( if we get it together to book in time and make a weekend of it). Of its kind, with its own charm and idiosyncracies.
