Had always thought about staying at this hotel when visiting Brighton, and finally it happened when we booked an overnight stay last week. The location is perfect, just along from the Pier and facing the seafront. This makes it easy to walk to either the shops in Brighton and many restaurants, or alternatively in the other direction, Kemptown and some really lovely small and quirky shops and restaurants. We booked the Ying Yang sea view room and you need to have the stamina of a mountain goat to make it up the three levels of stairs (no lift). We were OK, but if you are not very good with stairs then do ask for the location of your room. The room did look bigger on the website, but it was immaculately clean and had a stunning view of the seafront. It had a teeny tiny wet room and a bath in the main bedroom by the window. Everything is a squeeze in the room, so good that we were only staying the one night. The other thing to mention is the road noise (do emergency services need to use sirens in the middle of the night?). This is only to be expected as the room faces the road, but if you are looking for a restful night then perhaps ask for a room at the back of the hotel. However, it had everything we needed, a comfy bed with lovely bedding, and tea/coffee making facilities. The staff were friendly and welcoming.
