I would leave a positive review of The Square but our room booking has been cancelled by the management. I had booked our deluxe room for 4 nights for Brighton Pride in August this year. This was done at the beginning of January. The location of The Square Hotel in New Steine was a major factor because a big part... More

I booked a room at the Square about 5 months ago for a 3 day stay in mid-May and recently couldn't find my confirmation #. Upon emailing the hotel to request it, I received a response saying that refurbishments are continuing through the end of May and that they can't honor my booking. My trip is less than 8 weeks...

I booked The Square for 5th Feb and we stayed in Room 1. The decor of the room and reception area was very stylish.

would definitely stay here again if returning to Brighton. Very warm welcome and everything you need in the room, including a small fridge. Bottle of Prosecco on arrival with red roses was a nice touch for Valentine's weekend! Excellent location. We didn't book breakfast as we wanted to try out the numerous local cafes.

We booked last minute but weren't disappointed, the location is perfect, by the sea and within walking distance of the town/pier/lanes. We stayed in a deluxe double room and it was wonderful, lovely quirky furniture, comfortable bed and nice extras - complimentary chocs and biscuits.

This boutique hotel is right by the seafront and exactly where you need to be. We stayed in the 'reverse penthouse' in the basement of the hotel. We loved it. The staff were so nice and really helpful. The suite was fantastic, I would go back in a heartbeat.

This is not a four-star hotel (as advertised on their website). Would I even call it a hotel? Maybe more of a guest-house or B&B. First the positives: it is in a GREAT location. Close to the seaside and to all the nicest restaurants/bars. The staff are also extremely lovely, helpful and kind. HOWEVER, the whole building is extremely run-down.... More
