We only stayed here one night and did not have breakfast so I can only comment on my experience.
We were on the fourth floor and we and others we spoke to found the rooms uncomfortably hot despite opening the window. However, fans were available upon request so if we had being staying longer I would have asked for one. We did have a good view of the bandstand and beyond it out to sea. If you are getting the hotel at a good price as we were I suggest that you ignore any minor problems. One problem which is not peculiar to this hotel is the parking. They allocate spaces on first come first served basis. We had to park on the seafront. Just in
front of the hotel it was over £6 for two hours whereas a couple of hundred yards towards Hove you get 4 hours for the same money.
