Such a warm welcome from Norris at Drakes. He couldn't have been more helpful and I was really fortunate that he let me nab a parking space on the drive of the hotel. He showed me to my room and explained everything on the way about the bar and restaurant. Had a room at the back of the hotel, so...

We had just walked for 4hrs on the North Downs on a very hot day so arrived fairly bedraggled to a warm, friendly and helpful welcome. The room, overlooking the sea, was on the small side, partly due to the large amount of space taken up by the in-bedroom bath (We will be pleased when this fad is consigned to...

We stayed for one night, and were really impressed with how helpful the staff were. They were extremely friendly and made our first trip to Brighton very enjoyable. The room was lovely and it was a 2 minute walk to the beach. We will definitely go back and would highly recommend anyone else to do so too!

We were immediately greeted by a lovely young man, who very quickly took us down to the restaurant which is light, airy, clean and modern. Our table was beautifully laid, and we're offered water straight away. We were given a complimentary bread basket with exquisite brioche muffins with bacon and cheese, which was then followed by a complimentary appetiser which...

I stayed here for a long weekend with my elderly parents and could not have stayed in a better place. The rooms were excellent as was the food and the staff simply couldn't do enough for us. I explained when I booked that my parents were in their 80's and from there on in the service was amazing - they...

Second visit and I think it is resting on its laurels. Rooms still fabulous with huge wet room. Great bed. Nice cookies. No complimentary water, which is strange for a boutique hotel that costs £145 for one night. No fridge in room and no safe. We were also called ten minutes before check out to make sure we were leaving...

My wife and I visited this restaurant a while back. Very classy place with a great atmosphere, friendly staff and fantastic food. A bit pricey but for a special occasion it's worth every penny. We started upstairs at the bar with cocktails, which were sublime and then were escorted downstairs for our fantastic meal, will be back for our next...
