We recently stayed here in a big group for the London to Brighton Off Road Bike Race. We needed a hotel that was close to the finish line, had parking, and could store a number of mountain bikes, and this place fitted the bill.
The hotel is a little bit away from the centre of Brighton, nearer Hove, but it's in a good location directly across from the beach and within easy walking distance of some shops and pubs, although the hotel does have it's own restaurant and bar.
The rooms were clean, big, and had all the amenities needed. We had a sea view room and it was lovely. There are drinks facilities, TV, WIFI, and the bed was big and comfy.
I'd like to make a big point about how friendly and helpful the staff were. As mentioned we had a number of mountain bikes, and the staff let us use a locked room to store these safely, and they also let me park there from early morning the day of arrival, before I could actually check in, and also the following day they let me continue to park there, after we'd checked out, while we went into town to have a wander and get some lunch, basically saving us a lot of hassle and small fortune in parking charges - as anyone who knows Brighton knows, it is not the easiest or cheapest place to get parked! Nothing seemed too much trouble for them and everything was done with a smile.
We will definitely be returning next year over the weekend of the ride, as we couldn't have chosen a more perfect stopover. less
