I gave the quality of room a 3 because there wasn't a shaver point for my husband and the only plug sockets were to far away from the dressing table to be able to sit and dry my hair.

it was very clean but cheap and cheerful.

Pleasantly surprised!

Spacious room cleaned to a good standard.

Comfortable, welcoming room with good natural light and lovely view to the sea. Food is typical pub fare and was plentiful and tasty Staff were very friendly and helpful. I have already booked again as I liked my room and having the pub/restaurant facilities available. It is also very convenient for the Nuffield hospital being on the same road. Some reviews state noise but I wasn't disturbed at all despite the road.

not what was expected

Booked this hotel based on the photographs on the site, I booked the four poster ensuite room.

However, whilst the bed is definitely the one in the pictures the room bared no resemblance to the photos. The hotel is very noisy as it is over a busy pub, so it was not a relaxing weekend. It is tired and does not appear to be well-loved. I did not have the cooked breakfast, but my husband did and immediately regretted it - it was a constant reminder to his stomach all day.

I was taking part in Brighton marathon so had an early start on the Sunday which meant we would be away before breakfast was served, when I enquired whether we could have breakfast early on the Sunday I was informed they could only make us a sandwich the night before and leave it in a fridge down the hall. They did do this, but it left much to be desired. I would not stay here again, and will never book a hotel based on photographs again - also a warning should have flashed when we had to pay in full before we even made it to the room. Be warned before you commit to staying here!

friendly hotel

I found the staff helpful and friendly.

They took on board my disability and gave me an appropriate room. I would definitely use this hotel again when I visit family and friends in the area.

Decent room but very noisy

I stayed in a single room which I was told was away from the pub so quiet.

It was not quiet. I could hear punters talking and shouting all night, and the pub music was very loud. Don't stay here if you need an early night (like I did!).

The Downs Hotel

Had a very nice stay at the downs hotel.

All they staff were very friendly and welcoming and would stay again. Great value for money as we were only staying the one night. Only issue with the caravan that we booked was that there wasnt much in the way of heating which was too much of a problem, until we came in early morning. But if this was sorted would have been an fantastic stay. Would reccomend to others.
