Reviews - Old Ship Hotel - The Hotel Collection

4AA Assessed Hotel Ratings explained
31-38 Kings Road , Brighton, BN1 1NR
The Old Ship Hotel is one of Brighton's most impressive venues. The Old Ship is located on the sea front and overlooks glorious beaches and famous piers. There are bustling cafes, bars, antique shops and boutiques surrounding the hotel, and it is only a short distance from the historic Royal Pavilion.

The Hotel has 152 en suite bedrooms most having sea views. You'll find them extremely comfortable, well equipped with just about every thing you'll need. The Old Ship has a fantastic restaurant called 'Location 3'. This informal brasserie style eatery blends sophistication into an airy and relaxed atmosphere. With mouth-watering dishes, superior wines, and idyllic sea views,Location 3 easily compares to any fun loving society cafe.

Please note scaffolding will be in place to the side aspect of the hotel from 3rd June for 5 weeks.

Great hotel, great location 2 mins walk from pier.
We paid £75 for a basic room without breakfast. This hotel was a good deal, we stayed in the old part of the hotel so the floor boards were extremely creaky. The room was just fine with its ensuite and the staff friendy enough. The hotel is on the beach front just a walk from the pier. Good hotel, good location. Would visit again.

Excellent Hotel, though can be noisy
Wonderful hotel, sea view, perfectly clean, wonderful food and very professional. We had a wonderful stay.
The only issue was that the double glazing was not too good for very rowdy revellers on the street below and woke myself and my wife at 3am.
We were on the third floor and asking someone on the fifth they said they had not heard a thing - either it was just our room or the other person was a deep sleeper?
That said you can not hear passing traffic (of which there can be a great deal being on the sea front) and this was the only blemish to our stay.

Seafront hotel
Refurbished rooms are bright and stylish as are the public areas. Excellent service at Reception and all staff helpful and cheerful. What a 4 star Hotel should be.
Downside is that being on seafront it can be very noisy as drunken revellers roll home at 3 am but not a lot hotel can do about that.

Lovely beach front location. Newly decorated superior room was lovely.
The superior double was lovely and a great size. No cooling system tho unless you open a window to which Your disturbed by the noise of people going home and it was noisy until 445am!! Not the hotels fault but cooling the room was needed.

Perfectly adequate
I only needed to stay overnight. Location was excellent tho pretty tricky managing where to stop and unload on arrival as you are almost forced to go into the NCP car park. As it happens that was not so bad, very secure and cost £10 for the night which was less than expected. Staff a bit curt on check in but lovely on all following occasions. Your card key stops working if you keep it next to your mobile. OMG it was sooo noisy at night I didn't get any sleep. The room was recently decorated which was nice and tastefully done but smelt of paint so had to keep the window open. It was a Frdiay night but there was a total party going on outside all night, swiftly followed by lorries, deliveries, clearing up, vehicles, crates crashing and all sorts from dawn. Lovely walk along the front though.

accomodation
Lovely location although the room was quite small and very hot. Would have been nice if there was a minibar or complimentary water Ear plugs for guests of a certain age would have been nice too.

Not good enough for a 4*
Brass plates on the doors were smeary. Our room marks on the walls and the lamp bulb was not working. No courtesy water, fridge or safe. Dripping tap in the bathroom, dirty bath, cracked tiles and a bodged grouting job. Just one bubble bath between the two of us, no shower cap etc.
Breakfast from 7am until 11am on Sunday but check out was also 11am. We were shown to a table at breakfast. There was no cutlery and no napkins. No mugs, no coffee in the machine. No brown bread for the toaster. Not good enough for 4*.

Great value for location
Excellent location and compared to other adjacent hotels, very good value. Undergoing a refurbishment but not intrusive. Excellent customer service,very welcoming. Parking was the only issue as its limited but there are car parks & meters nearby.
