Reviewed 20 February 2012

Excellent value if you get discount deals online.
Staff very friendly, very clean and breakfast fine.
Dogs allowed but at £25 a night higher than many other hotels in Brighton.

Room Tip: Check prices as they vary a lot from website to website.

Being only 18 years old, me and my boyfreind had never stayed in a hotel before and were quite apprehensive about what to expect, after reading some reviews we were slightly worried, however after staying for three nights we were extremely pleased with the hotel and couldn't agree less with the criticism we had seen previously! The room was small, however this isn't a problem if your not exactly spending lots of time in there, the facilities were great, the TV had a range of channels (better than my one at home!) and the shower was fine, yes there could have been some updates for example grouting in the bathroom, but for what your paying.. you cant fault it. The receptionists were lovely, always smiling and greeting us when we walked in and out of the building, and were keen to answer any questions we had about Brighton, the restaraunt staff were kind in lending us plates and cutlery for our chinease take away! The location was fabulous, right on the sea front, only a few minutes walk from the shops and restaraunts. Had a superb time and would reccomend this hotel in an instance, so much that for my interview at Brighton University, im coming to stay here again!

Stayed here for 2 nights. On arrival rooms were not ready. Rooms are not available until 3pm on the day you arrive. We had asked for an earlier check in and were told we could have one but when we got the hotel staff said that this was not possible. There is a little area in reception where you can leave your luggage for no charge. The hotel is very central and is a 10 minute walk from The Brighton Centre and also from Brighton Railway Station. A taxi from the station cost cost £7.00 for 4 people and £9.00 for 5 or more people. Churchill Square mall is very close by and the laines are a 15 minute stroll from the hotel at a maximum. The shopping here is wonderful especially if you like quirky items. Rooms were generously sized but were a blank canvas. There were no pictures to brighten up magnolia walls. Other rooms did have a bit of wallpaper to brighten them up. These tended to be on the second floor so if you prefer a bit of colour ask for a second floor room and not a ground floor one. Bathrooms were fairly small too. Second floor rooms also had a bath as well as a shower. Could not fault the cleanliness of the hotel and the hotel is well heated. The beds are very comfortable. Bar area was lovely as was the restaurant. The hotel do not serve evening meals but if you are hungry after a night on the tiles toasties are available 24 hours a day at a cost of £4.95. They are very nice too. Breakfast was lovely and served hot. You help yourself to cereals and toast but are given a choice of breakfasts. There is a traditional english breakfast, vegetarian breakfast, fish breakfast, granola, pancakes and if you prefer fresh fruit can be ordered. Coffee and tea is plentiful.

Room Tip: Choose a second floor room as they have more colour to them and also have a bath as well as a shower...

Stayed for three nights. Room on the 4th floor - looked sort of newly decorated but very poor. Bathroom really rough. All credit to our cleaning lady who managed to make the room and bathroom look very clean.

Breakfast was tasteless; did not bother to get up on the last two mornings ate out. Staff at breakfast were all over the place - if they did not understand what you were requesting they just smiled and walked off ?????

Would I go back - No

I stayed here for a night via the lastminute.com 'secret hotels' offer after my boiler blew up, leaving me heating and hot waterless at home!

I paid the grand sum of £36.55 for my room, which was a double on the 5th floor. The room was quite small, but perfectly adequate and the bed comfy - and the bathroom had hot water, so job was done as far as I was concerned!

Amenity wise, you get a TV, tea and coffee facilities (albeit with that nasty UHT milk and no fridge, but then what do you expect for that price?!) and WiFI, although this doesn't work on the upper floors of the hotel. If you're visiting Brighton it's in a great position, very close to the town centre and situated right on the seafront. Yes, there are better equipped hotels about, but you'll need a better equipped wallet to stay in them.

In short, if you're after a cheap stay, you couldn't really ask for much more. I'd definitely go again :)

Room Tip: I was on the fifth floor (no WiFi coverage) and on the side of the building, so no seaview. Sea fac...
