Stayed 14th January in the City Bijou room for one night. I emailed prior to my arrival as it was my partners birthday, and the staff were able to put a birthday card out for him, as well as put some beautiful rose petals around the freestanding bath - a lovely touch! The room was much nicer than expected, couldn't...

This is a lovely boutique hotel a short walk away from the centre of Brighton. It's on the sea front and offers fantastic rooms with sea views, baths and a little bit of luxury compared to many other places in Brighton. It's let down a bit though by the little things like the noise of the air conditioning and bathroom...

ill start my review by adding, this 5 star rating was based on my room and the helpful kindness of the staff! The only part of my stay i can't comment on is the food as we decided to eat out. Im actually from Brighton myself, but me and the girlfriend like to venture around the local hotels for something...

Our room had a truly beautiful sea view overlooking the pier which was lit up at night. It was pretty small but perfectly appointed and just fine for one night. The bathroom was a tiny wet room but dried up pretty quickly. The bath tub in the room looked very inviting but there wasn't time on this visit to try...

My boyfriend and I visited this hotel for one night in December. We stayed in the Yin Yang room which I would highly recommend. The view is amazing, and it's a lovely place to watch the sunset over Brighton's seafront, especially from the free standing bath in the room. Perfect for a special occasion or a treat.

Stayed for 2 nights and were very impressed with the bijou room which although compact had everything that we required. Ate in the restaurant on our first evening and whilst the food was very good the menu was limited and unfortunately 2 of the 6 main courses were not available but that said the staff were polite and attentive Whilst...
