First impressions are great: the hotel facade, reception and welcome from the staff are excellent. I injured myself recently and the staff immediately clocked my crutch and offered to move me to a ground floor room with more convenient bathroom facilities. Bags were in my room before I'd finished the first class checking in process. The only opportunity for improvement...

Friends, Romans, Countrymen, Lend me your ears, I'm actually sat in this hotel right now.

We arrived here on day 1 of our European holiday. Straight off the plane from Australia after a very long flight and a car full of a months worth of luggage. Our initial reaction was that it did not look promising. The facade is quite run down and there was no sign of anywhere to park in the vicinity. I...

A one night stay at Drakes on Brighton's seafront. We had one of the circular sea front rooms (101) which was superbly appointed and had a great view of the pier. The huge bath in front of the bay window was extremely decadent and fun! As was the wet-room and massive shower. After enjoying some delicious cocktails in the bar,...

There were things I liked about this place but they were completely out weighed by the negatives. First the price, this is the most expensive hotel in a Brighton. We stayed in Oxford on the way down in a beautiful 5 star country manor hotel for just £120 including breakfast ( for two ) then we arrived at Drakes we...

We stayed for a couple of nights at this superb boutique hotel and, from a room on the 4th floor at the top of the hotel, we enjoyed fabulous views over the beach and out to sea. We had a fantastic greeting by James (from Brisbane) who, from the world go, made us feel so welcome and the excellent service...

Small but tastefully chic bar, Drakes has a great range of drinks and the knowledgable staff seem more than happy to talk you through the selections. A really lovely chilled atmosphere, perfect to watch the sea and soak up what Brighton is all about!

This was our first night away from our newborn and it was just perfect. The room was super clean with complimentary white company products. Getting ready for our night out may have been the best part of the night. We enjoyed the deep roll top bath whilst drinking the best cocktails delivered to us by a charming gentleman called Leon....
