Grabbed this last minute and yes, it was a tiny room, but what the owners have managed to squeeze into the space is impressive. Probably not advisable if you are 6’3’ or over though! Staff were very accommodating and location is excellent.

The people at the Motel Schmotel are so helpful, Iam sure that it won't be a problem. They certainly have eggs, yoghurt, fruit and kippers on offer! The hotel is super close to beach, shops Royal Pavillion and the pier.

There are a couple of spaces but they had gone when we got there so we went. There is a park nearby. I haven't got the paperwork on me but will look for it or they will give it to you in the hotel.
