Good location

The hotel is in a good location for seafront and lanes just behind.

Nice seating area to the front of hotel. Double room on 5th floor with sea view was comfortable but only complaint was toilet system not working properly which we let the font desk know about on leaving.

Very Impressive

I was extremely impressed with our room at The Old Ship Hotel.

We where told it was one of the best in the hotel, and we where certainly not disappointed. The room was beautifully decorated, all the necessary amenities where available, such as an iron, hair dryer and television. Bottled water and a range of different tea & coffee was provided which was lovely.

Everywhere was immaculately clean, including the bathroom. The provision of ear plugs and a note apologising for the noise on the street (as it was gay pride) was a nice touch. The beach view was exceptional, slight disappointment on not being able to open the balcony door fully but we did realise this was a safety issue.

On calling for room service we where informed we had to go down again to reception to register for an account for room service, which slightly defeated the point of calling room service. This could have been avoided by asking us if we wanted to do this on checking in to the hotel. We then where slightly put out by the attitude of the whoever we spoke to on the phone when we informed them we had decided not to bother and go out for food instead. After registering later on for room service so we could receive breakfast in bed the next day, no breakfast arrived, and only did after we had to call down to them and remind them.

However, this was a minor bother to our overall lovely stay at a beautiful hotel. I was extremely impressed, and we would love to stay here again, and definitely plan on in the future.

staying at the old ship hotel

nice hotel, but plumbing needs looking at, needs coffee facilities in room.

breakfast good but evening meals not so good especially the salmon which my wife said was dry.

Week end break to attend a wedding in Brighton

We had a lovely weekend at the hotel.

The staff where very helpful and friendly.The weather was very hot , although the room had a fan it was not very effective the rooms would benefit from having additional fans or aircon.Overall we really enjoyed our stay.The hotels location is perfect and in easy reach of the shops and the lanes.

Nice place good value

This is a decent hotel and offers better value for money than the other nearby hotels.

It was also surprisingly quiet considering it's location on the seafront. Only issue is very expensive parking, but this is quite normal for Brighton.

Not sure who's fault it is but....

The hotel is clean, the staff pleasant and the location on the seafront is ideal if that's what you are after.

When booking via late rooms we filtered the search for free parking, we also selected a room with a sea view, the short answer is no sea view and parking was £23 for the one night we were there, false advertisement somewhere... also FYI free WiFi but only in the reception area, not in the room.
