Excellent value

Great value for a short stay.

Booking in advance was a bargain.

Ideally located hotel for exploring Brighton

Booked two rooms the night before arriving; bookings went through without issue.

On arrival, the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is in an excellent location, literally meters from the sea front. Due to this, night time can be a bit noisy with club goers out 'til all hours but this didn't bother me too much and I still managed a good night's sleep. Equally, where the hotel is situated is also only a few hundred yards from a plethora of restaurants and cafes, so ideal for going out for dinner. We didn't eat at the hotel so cannot comment on the food there. The rooms are comfortable if nothing special. The fittings are dated and tired looking, especially in the bathrooms but functionally there were no real issues. The money paid for the room was in my opinion good value, especially given the location. Parking, as with everywhere in Brighton, is extortionate. The hotel has a limited number of secure spaces attached to the hotel which are convenient but charged at an extra £23 pounds until midday the next day; regardless of arrival time seemingly. I would stay there again and would recommend it to those wanting to see Brighton from a good base camp on a low to mid-range budget.

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.

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.
