we stayed there on a Red Letter Day gift voucher for my husband's special birthday celebration. i agree with many of the reviews that the hotel is fabulous - the location, food, staff and service. we had room 107 not sea view but the bath in the room made up for it. loved the clever design in the bedroom to make the most of available space. dinner was excellent though my husband would have liked bigger portions but breakfast didnt disappoint. the bed and fluffy large square feather pillows are the best i've slept on. in fact, could the hotel tell me what make the mattress is please so i could change mine ? just like another reviewer who subsequently bought one.

Room Tip: rooms on south side are quieter

My fiancé took me to Drakes for my bday in May. I'd heard of Drakes but never been. We had room 101 with a bathtub in the room overlooking the sea and the pier. Fantastic! We ate in their restaurant and the food was wonderful. Tasting menu good value in my opinion. Delicious Mai Tai in the bar afterwards. Hotel 10 min walk from the Lanes along the beach and 5 min to the Pier. So much more cool and contemporary than the stuffy older hotels. We'll defo go back!

We stayed for a night in one of the sea-facing yin-yang rooms. The free-standing bath was a major attraction in making the booking and it didn't disappoint. The room is not generous but it's cleverly designed and well-appointed and the views of the pier from the bath are great! The service at the hotel was lovely and it's brilliantly located on the seafront near Kemptown (ton?). My only gripe is kind of petty but what's the point of the wet room shower/bathroom that wets the toilet paper?

We have stayed at Drakes twice and both times our experience has been very good. The location is perfect if you want to be close to everything but not in the middle of it all. The rooms are very modern and have the most comfortable beds ever - so much so that we found out the make and bought one for ourselves!! We stayed in one of the Bijous City Double rooms which although very nice and with a free standing bath was very small. On our first stay we had a problem with the air conditioning leaking which when we reported it was sorted out asap with no problems and for the inconvenience we were offered a free room upgrade next time we stayed which was honoured about 6 months later. It is fairly expensive I think (especially with breakfast not included) so we have stayed in different cheaper hotels in subsequent visits to Brighton although I must admit that none have been as nice as Drakes.
