My sisters and I booked Drakes as a birthday treat for our mum's 87th birthday. We did telephone the hotel prior to booking to inquire whether the hotel was suitable for someone with mobility problems. We booked the ground floor sea view room for her and the rest of the party had the attic room. There are no lifts but...

We didn't stay at the hotel but we did book a table for dinner. All I can say was that this was one of the nicest meals I've ever had. I enjoy good food and this was absolutely delicious. My starter of quail was scrumptious and my partner enjoyed his gnocchi (which I felt could have been a little bigger...

The in room bath was a lovely addition and it was scattered with petals too which was lovely! Bed was comfortable, and they made clever...

Not a bad thing to say about this place! It is truly perfect. Arrived and was taken to our room by one of the members of staff - who was so friendly. Stayed in the ying yang sea view room, which had a magnificent view of the pier. There was a large bath tub facing the view and an extremely...

We stayed for 3 nights in January 2012. My wife, born in Brighton thought it would be a good time to revisit some places she hadn't been since a small child. The hotel was exceptionally well located, right on the front, a front facing room is a must! The hotel is very easy to miss purely because it doesn't have...
