Good old fashioned pub grub. Lovely roast dinner with all the trimmings and lots of it. Presented nicely with super friendly staff. Could not do enough for us, really enjoyed our meal here. Will most definitely will be visiting this place again.

Recently stayed here for my birthday trip away and to say I was unimpressed would be an understatement. However, the lady on reception who checked us in was pleasant and polite. Visiting Brighton for the nightlife was the main purpose of this visit and returning in the morning from a good night out was ruined by the fact that every...

Five adults booked in for two nights, bed linen was shoddy to say the least, didn't smell fresh so I assume it hadn't been freshly laundered, The T.V jutted out from the wall, so banged your head every time you got up from the single bed to go the bathroom. Then you've got the noise of the busy road and...

Hi, Thank you for the feedback. I'm sorry to hear about the T.V, we put it on a moveable arm as opposed to fixing to the wall so that it could be moved around to suit all in the room but I guess you do have to be careful. I can see if there's a better position for it. We...

Arrived quite late after a 6hr drive and was checked in nice and quickly. You can only park outside the hotel for limited time. I had to get up quite early and move my car onto 1 of the residential streets across from the hotel, roughly a 5 minute walk away. Rooms are a little dated but very clean. The...
