The most expensive room in the hotel has some fripperies; cafetiere with inferior coffee sachet; slippers/dressing gown; firm bed; wifi; wet room; bath on a pedestal - Sort of metaphor as the room doesn't live up to the pedestal it's been put on. The bath is deep and luxurious but if you wash your hair, you have to go to...

Dear J, We are sorry but not surprised that you were not satisfied with your stay at Drakes. It was clear from our conversations that you were after a specific set of requirements which we knew we could not provide at Drakes. We are primarily a romantic couples boutique hotel and we understand the free standing baths are not to...

We stayed in Drakes a few weekends ago and were a mixed bag ranging from my 10 year old niece to my nearly 90 year old dad who had great difficulty in walking. The rooms are nicely furnished in a contemporary style with the added bonus of the White company goods. The breakfast is plentiful and the staff were extra...

We arrived at The Drake's and parked easily. The location was great on the seafront and within easy reach of everything! The staff were really friendly and helped us with directions and lunch recommendations, made us feel welcome and at home. The room was fabulous, clean and well equipped, including de-caff ground coffee ( we often feel left out )...

Four stars seems one star too few for this outstanding hotel in Brighton. I loved everything about it, from the fantastic service, delicious food and lovely rooms to the location – just minutes away from Kemp Town, the Pier and the Royal Pavilion.

I only stayed for 1 night in the sea facing attic room but had an AMAZING time! The staff were wonderful and so helpful/friendly and the room was out of this world. The room had a bath facing the window, filled with rose petals. We stayed for breakfast and had the full english which included the small buffet which was...

We chose Drakes of Brighton as our first proper getaway since moving in together - we were not disappointed. From the communication before arrival, right up to check out - the staff could not have been more accommodating, polite or helpful. Parking so close is a definite plus for this hotel. Our room (Ying Yang Sea View) exceeded the pictures...

Great place to stay; relaxed atmosphere with very friendly and helpful staff. The room we stayed in was spacious, beautifully decorated with good quality bedding, White Company toiletries, robes, slippers etc. I would definitely return.

Drakes hotel is right on the sea front at Brighton - the road below is incredibly busy 24 hours so its like sleeping above a motorway. For this reason I am giving this place 3 stars - if you are noise sensitive you won't sleep well here no matter how lovely or luxurious the rom. Also just to spell out...

Some of the service highlights we received at this hotel: a phone call the day before we were due to book in to check if there was anything they could help with; letting us park in the hotel before check in time; actually escorting us to our room (almost unheard of in a chain); topping up the sparkling water and...

I came he fore the Brighton Marathon weekend, the cost was nearly twice the advertised price for a tiny room but that is down to supply and demand, you try getting a room in Brighton for the Marathon. The hotel has an amazing location on the sea front with a great view of the beach and pier from the room....
