Can't praise this place enough. Lovely warm welcome form Caroline and Simon. Friendly and helpful, yet not 'in yer face' type people. Lots of information about the area given, plus a town map (which came in really useful).
Breakfast was superb. The choice really HUGE. And the hot food was cooked really well and presented equally well. So nice to find the soya milk I requested on hand. You actually read the notes on my booking form - such a lovely change! Along with the tea I prefer, marmite, apple juice and so much more.
Wasn't sure about the communal breakfast table at first, but it did mean I had someone to talk to instead of sitting alone staring into my teacup. And Caroline introduced everyone, so it was all nicely relaxed.
Large choice of DVDs to play in your room.
The decor is modern and contemporary - I really regret not taking a photo of the 'medussa' looking lamp shade. If you stay here you'll see what I mean.
A mug for your tea or coffee - not a silly little cup.
Room spotlessly clean, and a nice comfy bed.
Plenty of sockets for my hair paraphernalia. And - oh joy - the sockets were in reach of the mirror!
I was on the top floor at the front, with a lovely sea view, but I did find all those stairs a bit difficult. But, I managed
The seafront is a few steps away with the Pier and attendant razzmatazz about 7 minutes. The Lanes, Royal Pavilion, shopping area all about 10 minutes walk.
There's loads of restaurants and bars all within 5 minutes.
Comparing notes with my friends who stayed a few streets away, I think I had the best deal! I'll certainly use Five again next year when I return to Brighton again
Thankyou Caroline & SImon
