Fine as a B& B but they are branding themselves as a hotel. Communal areas are very worn and dated, musty smell, "bar" area appears to be some bottled beer behind the reception desk/ bag storage area. Poorly trained staff. It was a great location, 1 min walk to the the quieter end of the beach, 10 mins up to...

The hotel is almost situated on the beachfront, yet far enough from the main beach road to be quiet. I stayed in a single room which was nice and clean, especially the bathroom. The bed was extremely comfortable. There were nice touches such as a basket of sweets and snacks in the room as well as tea and coffee, which...

A lovely B&B. Good location, clean and well appointed room. The room was comfortable, clean with a cool decor. The only thing I did not like was the carpet. Would have been so much nicer having a wooden floor. Breakfast starts at 9am quite late since we had to leave by 8am. The price was a bit high but not...

Absolutely loved everything about Tha Oriental. !! The little extras in the room were a nice surprise. I wanted to bring my two cocker spaniels and meet up with my teenage children. The oriental was perfect as we had the larger suite and we all had a lovely time. The staff are very welcoming and the offer of complimentary soft...

Had a great stay here and will definitely be back soon. Nothing was too much trouble - the staff deserves a medal! We had a very lively beagle with us and he too was having a ball. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Stayed here last weekend as a surprise birthday weekend for my boyfriend and Leo the dog. We arrived late and had a lovely welcome, room was lovely and spacious, well equipped and with lots of treats. Local pub in walking distance a bonus. Breakfast was yummy and lots of choice. Tea and coffee always available and fresh milk. Could not...

I'm from Brighton, just not living there anymore and was back visiting friends. So I booked this place as it's nice and central... I loved it... Really warm welcome and a informative run through and then I was shown to my room. I was in a single room, it was small, but not too small. More than enough room. I...

We have just spent a glorious weekend in the twin room. The L shape layout is brilliant, it makes for a spacious place for each guest. Plenty of windows means great natural lightining. View over small courtyard was pretty and we liked the separate shower room and toilet. Overall the room was cosy and quiet, comfy beds and amazing pillows...

Practically on the beachfront near the Tower. The double room was quite adequate for 2, nice and warm and cosy. My only gripe would be that there was no sink in the bathroom that we had, and that was a bit inconvenient. None the less, the staff were very obliging with any questions or problems (we had a temporary one...

We stayed here for a night at the beginning of December and had such a fantastic stay. We were in a large room almost on the top floor which accommodates dogs we're told. Lovely large bed and it was nicely subtly decorated. We liked the sink in the corner too, traditional but with a modern look. They've thought of nice...
