We thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay at Drakes hotel. The room was cosy and the view from the bath was breathtaking! The food in the restaurant was to die for, the staff were all super friendly and the service was great!

Stayed here for just the night for our anniversary. Got a free upgrade as the hotel wasn't very busy. Room was overlooking the sea and absolutely gorgeous! Bath was amazing and big enough for two. Free sky movies as no DVD player. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Able to get one of their parking spaces which was a bonus...

From the moment I called to make the booking we were not disappointed in any way! Even from when we arrived and it was pouring with rain Sarah (staff) came out to greet us with an umbrella and took our bags. Sarah was fabulous - so friendly and polite, our room was stunning (Ying Yang Double sea facing). The location...

I stayed in the attic sea view room and woke to blue skies and lovely light over the sea. The room was spotless. comfortable and welcoming.I was lucky to get an excellent price as my stay was midweek in January and I would definitely return.

Watched a murmuration of starlings circling the pier as the sun went down from the comfort of Drake's Bar on marine parade in Brighton. Perfect end to a gorgeous sunny day in Brighton. Small, cosy, intimate and very friendly. We will most definitely be back!

Stayed 14th January in the City Bijou room for one night. I emailed prior to my arrival as it was my partners birthday, and the staff were able to put a birthday card out for him, as well as put some beautiful rose petals around the freestanding bath - a lovely touch! The room was much nicer than expected, couldn't...

This is a lovely boutique hotel a short walk away from the centre of Brighton. It's on the sea front and offers fantastic rooms with sea views, baths and a little bit of luxury compared to many other places in Brighton. It's let down a bit though by the little things like the noise of the air conditioning and bathroom...
