Stayed for the night for my birthday in march. Hotel is ideally located on the sea front and close to the centre of Brighton with the lanes being a short walk. The hotel was clean and well looked after. On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly member of staff who couldn't do enough to help. Also gave us...

Was given a Groupon offer for the hotel as Xmas present and paid for two additional nights to make a long weekend. Was given room 417, small double, dark, grubby carpet and peeling wallpaper. I complained and for the last night was upgraded to a front sea view which was fabulous. It was like staying in a different hotel! My...

Been here many times now since last September. Been in many rooms now and all good quality. Staff are great food and breakfast are quality. Highly recommended. Only thing like most hotels in Brighton is parking but this is not a criticism of the hotel.

We stayed one night for bed and breakfast. The hotel is good in a great location on the seafront not far from the British Airways i360. The staff are very efficient and friendly. The room was very comfortable and had all amenities we needed. Breakfast was very nice with lots of choice.

Had a lovely stay at this hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We managed to get a parking space at the front for a charge of £18.00 which was convenient. Nice bar and dining area. Room very nice, comfortable and clean. We had breakfast in our room it was very nice. Will definitely return in the summer.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Brighton Hotel The Grade II listed Brighton Hotel is one of the most charming hotels in Brighton where you are guaranteed a warm and personal welcome. It is located on the seafront directly opposite the famous Brighton Bandstand and very close to the West Pier and to the site of the proposed i360 attraction. We are just a short walk to Brighton's main shopping areas, the famous Lanes with its cobbled passage ways and its myriad of little shops and boutiques, many of which are unique to Brighton. The Brighton Conference Centre is a five minute stroll away and we are literally a stone's throw from the beach. The Brighton Hotel is a privately owned independent hotel that is large enough to have all the faculties you would expect but small enough to make you feel important to us and special. The hotels elegant lounge, bar and restaurant have enviable sea views, a great place to relax and watch the world go by. The hotel has 55 well-appointed rooms, and while the hotel is right on the famous Brighton seafront it is just far enough out of the main centre's noisy bars and clubs to be significantly quieter than many other seafront Brighton hotels. High speed wireless internet access is available free of charge in all our rooms and public areas. As a 3 Star accredited hotel we offer Dinner in The Salisbury Restaurant available 7 days a week from 6.30pm till 9.30pm and our Lite Bite Bar Menu is available 7 days a week 24hrs a day. Arrival and Departure Time: Our check in time starts from 3 pm and our check out time is at 11 am. For an early check in or late check-out we charge £10 an hour. For peace of mind, our reception is manned 24 hrs. Cocktail Menu: Available Wednesday to Sunday from 5pm till 10pm. Room Service: Room Service is now available for Breakfast continental & Full English and we also offer a breakfast to go from 4am. We have limited parking in front of the hotel based on a first come, first serve policy. The guests can only book these spaces on arrival at reception. These spaces are sold for £18 per night. Therefore, if we run out of spaces, our guests can park in Regency Square Car Park which is just 3 minutes walking distance from us. Day rate for conference delegates is £9.00 And must be vacated by 17:00. Please note that Vans are not allowed to park in our car park due to size restrictions. Luxury Car Service For a little taste of luxury we can organise a private hire executive car to bring you to the hotel from your port of entry. The driver will meet you in arrivals of the appropriate terminal and deliver you straight to the hotel entrance. Prices start from around £140 from Heathrow Airport, £80 from Gatwick Airport and around £170 from St Pancras. To enquire about this service please contact the hotel directly with your arrival details (airport and terminal, arrival time and flight number or for Eurostar arrival time and your departure city along with your train number). Please note that transfers are not guaranteed until we confirm back to you and payment will be made direct to your driver and not to the hotel. ... more   less
