I booked to stay here for Brighton marathon weekend. Having arrived in Brighton on the Saturday to collect my race pack I arrived at the hotel at around 6pm. It's about a 10-15 minute walk from the station. Situated opposite the beach it is a brilliant location. Upon arrival I was greeted by the friendly receptionists and issued with the...

We arrived an hour and a half early and went up to the reception to enquire about car parking. Before I'd even finished the sentence as to why we were there it was barked at us that we wasn't allowed to check in until 3... which we already knew. After paying additional money for the permit we decided to go...

Big Sleep - Simple Clean Cheap and friendly - definitely worth going back. Continental breakfast included. Extra payment for what looked to be a good cooked breakfast. Only there one night but a very positive experience!

I was walking on the South Downs Way with a friend and we were looking for a reasonably priced / budget hotel for one night.. Big Sleep met our requirements. We stayed in single rooms and thought they were small but clean with en suite bathroom. There is a kettle and tea / coffee in each room. All the staff...

Great hotel. Decor is quirky in the lounge and simple but comfortable in rooms. You get amazing service and very polite staff. Very good location to theatres and local amenities. Reasonably priced. Stay many times and will continue to do so. See you Soon!

The room was great with excellent sea view. A little bit dated but nice and cosy and clean. Continental breakfast was plentiful and to good standard. Will stay at this hotel again, cheap but worth it.
