Due to...

Just off the seafront, in a quiet residential Regency townhouse, but close enough to all the bustle and entertainment of Brighton. A calm and relaxed haven to return to after a busy day with attentive and helpful staff. Funky but not too quirky - good food and all the extras that you need for a comfortable trip

The staff are very friendly and helpful; nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast was one of the best hotel breakfasts I have had. All in all could not be faulted and hope...

the Oriental is a small but perfectly formed B abd B in Brighton. It is coool and funky, yet warm and welcoming at the same time. The new owners fall over themselves to be helpful and breakfast is healthy and sustaining, very generous portions. The tiny breakfast room/bar is beautifully lit with soft music, we had cocktails there which were...
