The Old Ship
Pleasant hotel right on the beach.
Great location. Friendly staff. Decor a bit dated but overall a clean and comfortable room. Breakfast was delicious. I would stay here again.
It's over priced and a bit shabby paying f0r location !!!!!!
Thank you for the earplugs, they were needed.
Lots of noise from the promenade
A sea view room that was great in the daytime proved to be a let-down at night.
Lots of noise from revellers on the promenade below (even through double glazing) created a long disturbance. As with all Puma hotels that I've stayed at, The Old Ship exudes faded grandeur.
Was very unimpressed to find that I had scaffolding outside my window.
I had no light coming through and it didnt prove to be a very nice view!
Was frustrated after driving down from London that you had no car spaces to park had to pay £25.00 to park also .
I think to drive better service and returning custom , should offer car park space for free this would be an easy service to provide , In Brighton there is literally no where to park , to go away for the weekend and to have to get up very early to move car is definitely not a positive for brighton . Chose to go to another hotel next day rather than to stay on as another hotel room was £45 pounds cheaper better value for money when you have to pay high parking fees.
We liked the hotel and room tho there is room for improvement as far as cleaning of the room goes , staff were fantastic and we wil be staying again in the future .
The layout of the hotel is quirky and the staff are always polite.
The room was freezing as there was only one radiator under a single glazed window.
Food is always cooked well and there is a good variety.
Gillian, who works in the restaurant, is a delight and treats everyone as if they are an old friend.
nice hotel from the outside very good position for sea front and lanes.
but don't pay for superior room like I did . paid extra for room with excessive street noise no sleep till after 3am. who would put superior rooms next to noisy street ?. no help from management.
