Stayed here for a Hen do we attended in Brighton. 3 of us shared a room ( 2 double beds) on the 3rd floor, and with no lift in the hotel this was hard going especially with bags etc. The Decor is shabby in the main hallway and really doesn't give a great impression. The room itself was ok, clean...

We needed a hotel for a trip to Brighton and wanted something simple (we recently moved from Brighton and we're on a visit to catch up with friends). The hotel located on the sea front of Brighton, opposite the i360. Small room but was comfy and clean. Towels, TV, free wifi and tea & coffee facilities in the room. Great...

Very basic but clean and tidy, everything in good working order. Paid extra for an en suite room which was worth it to avoid using the bathroom on another floor. Good location for Preston street nearby which has lovely restaurants and bars.

Well... here we go... i have never, ever, encountered such Customer Service! We use the The Granville Hotel quite regularly. Our next booking was for September, but there were absolutely no rooms available, due to a company function, but i could not change our visitation dates, due to appointments. I cheekily asked what other hotel/s might have rooms for the...

Friendly staff and great food at Smokey's below the hotel. For a budget hotel was excellent and would recommend. If I had one complaint we were on the 3rd floor so a lot of stairs but was ok for us. Comfy beds and clean room. Would definitely book again.

Was a bit apprehensive about staying at this hotel as someone else had booked it for a group booking, rooms were a lot better than anticipated. The downside to this hotel is the stairs, no lift. Public areas a bit tatty and need of a facelift, but the bedroom was clean, bed comfy, good pillows. Cost wise, very cheap for...

Only stayed for one night. Family of 4 (2 adults & 2 children). First impressions were the same as other reviews. We had to ring the bell and wait for the door to be opened, then we were taken through a series of rooms and doors before we finally arrived at the reception of the Granville next door. There are...

I recently stayed 2 nights at the Cecil with a friend we booked to be near the Brighton centre for an il divo concert. Upon arrival which was very strange we had to ring and wait for someone to open the door, then led through a dilapidated maze of doors and rooms to the reception area which is under renovation....
