Close to the pier

Very close to everything, & we had a wonderful view of the pier. Hotel a little tired, but clean & comfortable.

Tired hotel

Pros: Good ocean view from the lounge. Kettle in the room.
Cons: Internet access Front office service Attention to detail in rooms
Location: Close to Brighton pier
The hotel is on the beachfront and the rooms seem to look out over the water. The lounge downstairs has an excellect view, but the ocean view room had two small windows, from one of which one could see the sea standing right in front of it. The hotel is old, with frayed carpets and poor infrastructure. There was no soap provided in the room and the soap dispenser over the bath had been left with the cover off. The check-in desk was always busy and seemed to be understaffed. Although booked on a flexible rate, full payment was demanded at check-in rather than payment on checkout as expected. The biggest problem, though, was that the wifi/intenet was down for almost my entire 1 night stay.

BEST position in Brighton. That's it !

Location: Right opposite the Pier, and walking distance to lots of shops, pubs, restaurants etc...
I was expecting Basil Fawlty to appear at any time, and I was always keeping an eye out for Manuel in the dining room........Enough said....!.

Location is the only good thing about this place

Can't even get the bedding situation right and then when confronted persisted to blame everything and everybody else rather than attempt to fix the situation.
