Looked at this bed and breakfast on trip advisor and read the reviews that is why we decided to book it due to the location and the price. The location is great accessible for lanes all be it a ten minute walk away and the seafront at the bottom of the road.
When we arrived we parked in a near by car park which was very small and smelly and access made a hell of a lot easier if you had a smaller car. We later found out that we could have asked for a permit to park in the streets for a discounted price. The car park was £18.50 for 24 hours, wasn't too far from hotel though.
Upon arrival we were greeted by a lovely young man who advised us that his partner had only just bought the business and it was their first night of new ownership ! His hospitality was great and seemed like he would be a good and ideal new manager. The room was in the ground floor and had everything you needed for a pleasant stay and best thing was the beds were comfy. The only thing I would stay is maybe the window dressings could maybe be altered to make the room darker in the mornings as the light wakes you up early. But anyhow that's just a suggestion.
So At breakfast time we decided to take breakfast at the cafe up the road instead of having the continental in our room in the morning. The hotel guests can use the cafe and the price is included in their stay you just pay a £3 supplement on top. The new owners said they were putting coffee and tea making facilities in the rooms soon so that will be an added bonus. (They also said they are thinking of doing breakfast in one of the rooms downstairs which would be nice). At the moment you have to make your own coffee and tea in the downstairs kitchen, not that I minded because it gave me the chance to have a proper gossip with the new owners, they are very nice and I wish them all the luck
In the world in their new venture. If I go back to Brighton I will be staying there again but this time will probably be with my girlfriends. All in all a very pleasant stay.
