    This place is dirty, ruff and very run down, staff are rude and I would not leave my dogs there for the night, be warned do not book here.

    None.

    There are many nice hotels that ate not expensive this is not one of them, I would not advise anyone to book here, it's not suitable for anyone, it's used for the council for the homeless in the hostel part, be carefull.

    Nice

    Price would have been right if not for the issues Beds where comfy to sleep on Good location across from the beach

    Breakfast was not continental, it was toast Looked like the bed frames had not been cleaned Returned to the room and found someone in my bed and had to split from the group to sleep in another room Was not told about a £40 deposit required until arrival

    Cleanness was very poor and the staff useless and not friendly at all

    Very large spacious rooms

    No air con - can imagine it getting uncomfortable on a very hot day. Distance from Brighton town centre quite far... about a 15-20 minute walk.

    Very good

    Good value for money, clean rooms, new clean bathroom, hot shower, comfortable bed

    They tried to charge us 5% for using a debit card, even through I had called the previous day to confirm that using a debit card wouldn't incur a charge, I had to argue and they let me off. Then I had to pay £10 deposit for each room which I wasn't made aware of. My room had a very bright lit up smart sea view hotel sign right outside the window and the very thin vertical blinds were useless, so my room was far from dark making it hard to sleep. Breakfast was very basic, just White bread and a toaster, cornflakes and tea or coffee, horrible orange squash! You have to make it all yourself, although you can have as much as you like.

    Very good

    We had book two twin rooms for 2 nights but there was some problem and we didn´t get it for the first night. However we got another room with very cheap price and it was all right. The twin room were good because they had just made some reconstruction. The location on the seaside was good though the hotel is rather far away from Brighton railwaystation.

    Perfect

    It was all that was advertised, staff were lovely.

    Nothing except two disputes with people around door area late at night caused people to be kept awake.Not the staff's fault but it seemed like 2 arguement starters deliberately chose a quiet spot to act up & it wd have been great if they were moved on quicker by being threatened with a phonecall to the police for breaking the peace as the 2nd incident went on for half an hour.

    It was really clean and fresh

    Far location, breakfast is just nothing - cheapest cornflakes and white bread with jam, no chairs in the room, receptionist was nice but unprofessional. It's good only for one night if you need something cheap and clean.

    The fact that when we arrived, there was a argument going on with a guest and staff did not bode well. There was a distinct lack of customer service!

    The room smelt of paint and it was very noisy

    What I liked best was its' location.

    There was renovations going on that were not mentioned. there was wet paint on most doors which had to be opened by pulling on masking tape. There was blankets under doors and in hallways to catch paint which i felt were hazardous. My room smelt of paint. The curtains were falling off the rails, which let in lots of light. No shower connected and when I ran the bath dirt and grit came out along with the water.....

    It was clean and cheap.

    We stayed in the double bedroom. The bed was very uncomfortable. I could not even sleep. The bathroom did not have a shower. Also there was no bucket or mug. The closet did not have any slab. Overall I would suggest people to spend £10 more and stay somewhere else rather than staying here.

    Very good

    Stayed in a double room which was clean and comfortable.

    The laundry facilitys, and the kitchen as stated on the website were non- existant. The breakfast was dissapointing, I choice of cereal and toast. We stayed in room 4 which is right at the front, the blinds were sheer and let in all light from outside including the hotels neon sign right next to the window. Very hard to sleep.

    Perfect

    The price reflected the amenities. The beds were very comfortable in this no frills bed and breakfast and the staff were very pleasent and helpful. Ideal for back packers and low manintence guests. My friends and I would stay again.

    A sponge type mat like they have abroad would have been nice in the shower room as it was very slippery.

    Easy to find, staff helpfull, rooms were clean

    No credit card facility had to find a cash machine to pay cash, locks on doors were not very good, shower was cold, and it was a little bit out of town, which meant walking was not too far, but to go home and get changed meant it was a long way to walk back and then go out again
