hotel staff were ok but showed little interest when i told them of a dirty bin with a used dirty pair of slippers and other rubbish in the bin from a previous traveller. And a dirty tissue in the bath robe when i went to use it stayed in 2 small town motels on my way back both with equal or better standards than the como

Convenient hotel.

Pros: Staff, comfortable bed, food and valet car parking (even though there was a cost involved).
Cons: Not much really. I think if the room we stayed in (518) is programmed for refurbishment, then maybe a more modern walk-in shower?
Location: We had a funeral in Brighton so location was ideal. Chapel Street for shopping also suited us.
Nice hotel close to where we needed to be. Staff were excellent and the in room meals also excellent. Bed was much more comfortable than we expected (top marks). The shower in the spa bath was a little challenging for us as we are over 65! But it was just something we had to be careful with. We used your valet car parking and the staff involved were terrific under challenging and busy conditions at times. Only minor negative was that my wife noticed the top of the art piece next to the wardrobe was dusty. In summary, the staff couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome and attend to all our needs. Well done to all involved.
