My boyfriend and I booked to stay here, rather last minute, for New Year's Eve. On arrival we were greeted by a lovely, bubbly lady called Stephanie. We were made to feel very welcome, shown to our room and everything was explained to us. The room was clean, stylishly set out and of a good size despite the fact we...

Our room (circular) featured a bath in the room by the window which was great for relaxing in. Excellent in-room facilities including white company goodies. The staff were very friendly, super efficient and genuinely welcoming. Parking right outside the hotel worked a...

Wet, windy January escape to Brighton. We have stayed many times before. I confess, we have one regret; we had never sampled the dining experience. I whole heartedly recommend it. The food was excellent, the environment was really good and the service was extremely attentive. The hotel has achieved exactly what many 'boutique' hotels aspire to. Drakes is our only...

Drakes hotel is very well located and has really cool and chic rooms - a bath facing the sea or a wet room. Several rooms have a beautiful sea view, nevertheless it must be said they might be a bit noisy as the cars pass by.

Second visit to Drakes and still hugely enjoyable. Staff couldn't be more helpful and obliging. The room we had was large and well appointed with a great wet room. The only negative thing we found was that there was a lot of road noise and also from people using the bar and restaurant at night. Secondary glazing would help a...

A fantastic lunchtime experience. We chose from a well selected set menu ... I chose lobster risotto and daube of beef ... beautifully cooked and we'll presented. Extensive wine list. A surprise appetizer of chicken liver parfait was delicious. Gorgeous home made orange and chocolate truffles and pistacio madeleines with coffee left no room for dessert.

I booked a room last minute for my partner and I for a nights stay. The service was fantastic, we were shown to our room and everything explained.
