Six of us had lunch at Drakes prior to attending a concert in Brighton and had a most enjoyable meal. Choice of beer was rather lacking (no bitter) but some good wine choices. A limited menu selection, three/four choices for the starter, mains and desserts but that, in my opinion is a benefit as you can generally be sure that... More

Stayed here in Dec 2014 (though i had already reviewed this place, clearly not) and this is without doubt the best place to stay in Brighton. We booked the Suite with a Roll top in the room and everything was quite magical. The bed was superb, huge with beautiful linen. The bathroom/shower room was amazing, you could have a party... More

Might be strange for a Yank to say but I had a wonderful break at 4 with a very traditional tea and scones service. Best anywhere in the world I have been. Wonderful atmosphere. The whole place has that vintage 40s touch.

We loved this hotel; cosy, chic and quiet/understated. We arrived to yummy cocktails by a very knowledgeable barman. The room was well stocked with goodies and has the most amazingly comfortable bed. The bath with a view in the center of the bay window is a must - so ask for one of the sea facing rooms if you can.... More

This is a well located hotel. With a great bar/reception area. Parking is usually a premium in Brighton so being able to book outside front door was superb (phone before hand and book a slot). The staff are friendly and welcoming and very happy to provide advice and recommendations. The bar is well stocked. Provide cocktails and good selection of... More

Drakes is special, Drakes is wow! The rooms are beautiful, request a sea side view that gives you a wonderful view of the pier, beach and horizon. You can soak in your freestanding bath, looking out across the sea, it is simply beautiful! It is centrally located in Brighton, should you ever want to leave your room, with all attractions...

My wife and I had spent time in London and in Paris, and thought that an excursion to Brighton would be an interesting change of scenery and pace. At the time that we booked, Drakes Hotel was running a two nights for the price of one special, reducing the cost of a top-floor (attic) room from 360£/night to 180£/night. The... More

I stayed here for 2 days the room was cozy but very very tiny. I had a beachfront View which was one of the highlights of my stay. There are no elevators unfortunately i had the 4th floor which was exhausting after a while going up and down. The bathroom has glass doors split in half vertically so there is... More

I was lucky enough for my other half to take me away for my birthday this year, and he had booked Drakes as the Hotel and Restaurant. The bedroom had a stunning view across the seafront with a huge bath situated right in front of the window to allow you to gaze out whilst taking a dip. Beautiful! The rest... More
