I shared a mid-week escape from London with my partner at Drakes and our stay was nothing short of fantastic. The roof top balcony view of the pier was stunning. Staff were exceptional. Our room was absolutely wonderful and the bath by the window capped off our perfect night away. We also ate at the restaurant which lived up to...

I booked few days in Drakes hotel for my boyfriend birthday. When we arrived we were greeted by a friendly receptionist with a shining smile. I payed in total 315£ for two night with breakfast included: the room was absolutely tidy and clean, the breakfast was abundant and it was a pleasure to find the newspaper every morning. The price...

We stayed one night for our wedding anniversary and had the 5 course chef's tasting menu. We booked a top floor room with access to a private rooftop balcony overlooking the sea which had great views over the sea and Brighton pier. The best part was the wonderful friendly service from everyone we met during our stay. The added touch...

This should have been a much better review !! Very helpful and friendly staff and I cannot fault the service. Good location. The beds are comfortable . The food in the restaurant was excellent . Now for the downside. Due to it's location, it is extremely noisy outside with student beach paties and traffic noise being the worst culprits which...

I booked in here for two nights whilst working in Brighton. There is a lot of choices of hotels across the seaside coast and I have stayed in a few before whilst on business, however I was recommended here by a colleague. I was not disappointed. The hotel actually has the ability of seeming rather grand and royal even though...

We have stayed in this hotel a few times because the rooms are great. I recommend the Seaview attic room with freestanding bath, if you can handle the stairs. Breakfast was not particularly nice, that said after a polite conversation with the staff they apologised and did not charge us for breakfast. I will certainly go back in the future.

First impressions are great: the hotel facade, reception and welcome from the staff are excellent. I injured myself recently and the staff immediately clocked my crutch and offered to move me to a ground floor room with more convenient bathroom facilities. Bags were in my room before I'd finished the first class checking in process. The only opportunity for improvement...

Friends, Romans, Countrymen, Lend me your ears, I'm actually sat in this hotel right now.
