“Nice Place to stay”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

Just returned and thought must write a review. This hotel is in the Marina some 25 minutes walk from the main city centre in Brighton, thus you sense that you are out in the sticks. In summer the hotel is well placed for some peacefulness; but when it's cold just too far away from the entertainment. Hotel is okay but, nothing to shout about. Very clean, nice staff, relaxed atmosphere, good balcony views though wishy-washy tea. Both at breakfast and in the rooms the tea is awful. Coffee is good, breakfast is very good, great amount of choice. When it rains and blows over the marina it is hard to get to sleep as the wind beats against the windows and it becomes very noisy - especially if you have come to get a good nights sleep with good views.

Room Tip: Get a balcony view towards the sea when the sun is going to shine; if it is going to rain, get a roo...

We have stayed at this hotel twice now - ironically both times in the same room overlooking the stunning Marina views. The hotel is delightful and very well placed for eating out in one of the many eateries nearby. The hotel and room are both modern,stylish and very well equipped and the staff are efficient and pleasant - don't be put off by their casual dress!! Rooms have everything you need and are clean and bright. Breakfast is varied and delicious!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the marina - a little more expensive but worth it

Can wholeheartedly recommend the Seattle Hotel in Brighton. Friendly reception staff and easy check in. We had booked a seaview double but was upgrated to a king sized room upon arrival. The bar was very welcome after a cold windy day at the races in nearby Plumpton. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable. Our room was great. The walls were a bit thin as had a family with two young children next door. The bathroom was great. Two large basins and a fab bath/shower. We had dinner in the restaurant and once again the staff were 10/10 and the food equally good even though portions were a little small, ie. I ordered 'scallops' and 'it' arrived having been sliced into 3! Shame. Wine list was good. Woke up the next morning to a wonderful view of the marina under grey stormy skies with waves crashing against the harbour wall. Could have sat on the balcony all day watching the scene. Breakfast was great. Good full English available and lots of choices for the continental option. Really enjoyed our stay. Congratulations to the hotel on their staff training as everyone was friendly and very good at what they were doing. Forgot to mention the crisp white bedlinen.

Don't be put off by the entrance to the Seattle hotel in between tacky restaurants and bars, once inside it is modern, spacious and well decorated. The rooms which overlook the Marina are fantastic and on a sunny day you could be in St. Tropez! (the B&W Zeppelin's in the room are a nice touch). With a great bar (and terrace) it is the perfect place to chill and enjoy the amazing Marina views. The staff are friendly and make you feel very welcome. Highly recommended!

I think me and my husband must have been there the same night as Jane from Somerset. We had a balcony room near the terrace of the bar. The room was stuffy so we opened the window but unfortunately all we could hear was loud talking and every other word was swearing. We phoned reception at 1.30am,1.50am and finally at 2.30 am. At first they said they would sort it out , but by the 3rd time we had rung the only thing we were offered was a change of room.
It is not cheap to stay there and you would not expect this sort of behaviour. If the bar was meant to close at 1.00 am I do not think the staff stopped serving drinks after this time.
My husband did email the hotel manager but he has yet to respond after 10 days.
