We stayed here for my partners birthday . It's was so disappointing we left the bedroom to be cleaned and they only made the bed and put 2 new towels in . The housekeeping staff took down all my partners birthday cards and put them in a pile . Whilst removing the dad key charm out of the drawer ....

We have no idea what this so called guest [we note a seemingly anonymous reviewer] is talking about. Unless requested, for short stay guests, of course the bedding will not be changed. By equal measure our highly proficient, professional and honest housekeeping team would not have troubled themselves to become involved in any guest paraphernalia as they neither have the...

appreciated the style and cleanliness of our room (first floor); comfy bed, nice view and close to beach location; got good value for the money paid (rates for this place seem to vary significantly) various eateries right around the corner; staff was helpful and committed; good wifi

Thank you for this stellar, no-nonsense review. It has put Riba and her team on cloud nine as a result and we are very much looking forward to seeing you again - from Germany - when your plans allow. You were a brilliant guest

Paid £135 for a double room. Room was ok size wise but it smelt horrible, damp, old. Bed wss ok. Mucky carpets, dingy room, bathroom equally so. Seagulls very loud on window cills. Downstairs was ok, there was a bar and pool table.

We were naturally sorry to learn your stay did not hit all the right notes and hopefully we can reach out to you through the good offices of TripAdvisor Our seagulls are very much part of life in the City and they invariably prompt a reaction The Langfords strives to provide value for money and we believe that £135 for...

Whilst we were pleased that, overall, you recognised the value for money the Langfords strives to provide, by equal measure we were sorry you encountered some issues with your stay. To be clear, there is only one working lift in the hotel [service or otherwise] which services the south part of this great Edwardian building. Love them or hate them,...

We were there for 3 nights in a double room. Good room size, comfy bed, nice bathroom. Our particular room also had a balcony. The hotel itself was nice enough, bar, pool table, tv showing the football, nice entrance and 24 hour reception service. We needed somewhere to stay near Brighton, and found the buses frequent and easy to hop...

Came with a Hen party. Got given a very hot attic room on third floor with no lift. It was a triple room but only given 2 towels. When asked for a third, it was if we had asked for something that was quite a lot of trouble and they said that they would see what the could do! We...

SteveT258Hove, Manager at Langfords Hotel, responded to this review

This is a disappointing critique and has upset our Head Housekeeper who would want all our guests to have a plentiful supply of towels. Our website access statement makes it clear that only the south wing of the hotel is serviced by a lift and we hope the location is made equally clearly. Hove is around 20 minutes from the...

Reviewed 24 June 2016 via mobile

This is easily the worst hotel I have ever encountered. I am embarrassed to admit the room cost me £115. Looking back, I think they should have paid me. Very tired rooms, ripped carpets, mouldy walls and bathroom. Although the area is nice and quiet, the noise between rooms and the corridor made for a poor nights sleep. STAY AWAY...

SteveT258Hove, Manager at Langfords Hotel, responded to this review

This review is as unhelpful as it is disheartening and typical arm chair fare. If this guest was as disappointed as they are now alleging, the hotel would have done their best to suggest alternatives. This appears to be a highly experienced traveller and contributor so we are at a complete loss. No substantive details of their stay are provided...

I paid £90 per night for a single room and was allocated room 302. It was situated at the end of a narrow, maze like corridor and I definitely agree with the previous review. It was certainly dreary and my first impression was just grim. Fine if I was paying £50 in a hostal - the price doesn't include breakfast...

This is clearly a disappointing review. While this patron's stay may not have hit all the right notes; we must however be very clear about the electrical issue, in that all items have been properly "PAT" tested and that the over-arching 'periodic' testing - a key regulatory requirement - is adhered to strictly The hotel is very clear that there...

This review is all about expectations - the guest chose to stay in a value for money hotel then as best as we can tell elected to benchmark it against the Hilton - there would have been plenty of other similar establishments to that well known brand so why not pay more and accessorize the experience? Why not indeed. The...

A good hotel which is well located just a short stroll from the beach. 20 minutes walk and you're in Brighton. Staff were friendly and really helpful. Totally worth getting the parking permit from the hotel as the parking attendants are a little trigger happy! Would recommend staying here.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Langfords Hotel in Hove is situated on a tree-lined avenue a short stroll from the shingle beach of Brighton and Hove’s historical seafront; only a fifteen minute walk from the bustling centre of the South Coast’s famous seaside resort of ‘kiss-me-quick’ Brighton. Although Brighton retains its cheeky reputation, it has grown up considerably since it merged with its immediate neighbour, Hove – when it became a new British city for the Millennium; a gift from HM The Queen! The combined treat of ‘Brighton & Hove’ officially merging, is that the City has become one of Britain’s most savvy twenty-first century Media Hubs – and The Langfords keeps pace happily, with conference packages to suit corporate delegates or for ‘start-ups’ in need of some space when meeting with clients…The Langfords is a lovely, red-brick Victorian building echoing with old charm and brimming with character. The hotel has 58 very well proportioned bedrooms (all with en-suite facilities), and the spacious lounge bar has direct access to our lawned gardens – perfect for relaxing in on those sunny summer days and warm evenings. We also have eight function suites and a reputation for excellent conference and wedding facilities. ... more   less
