“Great Brighton hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

The George IV Hotel is a great stay, especially for a quick weekend getaway! You must stay here!!

We stayed in a Seaview double. The room was large, clean, warm and had exactly the view as described!! Without being spectacular, the room was well decorated and furnished...including iPod/iPhone docking station and free wifi (which you hardly ever get in chain hotels). In terms of the room it had a comfy bed, good shower (purchasable toiletries!?) and freeview tv.

The location is perfect for anybody 'just visiting' Brighton. It is right on the seafront (set back about 100m in a quiet square) just opposite the old pier that burnt down. It is also walking distance from many of the shops, bars and restaurants. We walked to The Lanes and North Street areas easily (10mins). Parking was fine, they recommend a car park 2 min walk which was £10 for a 24hr period (£20 for the weekend). Only interacted with the staff over phone and at check-in but seemed friendly.

Breakfast was not included and seemed a little pricey, though we did not have one. It may be a little more expensive than a Holiday Inn Express or Comfort Inn but it is worth it, even for a fleeting stay. Only other 'bad' point was the noisy floor boards of the room above us - not sure why the guests were walking around for an hour at 7am on a sunday?? But it did keep us from sleeping a little...This is NOT a reason not to stay here, we had a really lovely stay!! Book now!!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the George IV for 2 nights in February. Our room was perfect; large, warm, clean, comfy bed and beautifully decorated. The location is ideal for exploring both Brighton and Hove. I would highly recommend anyone visiting Brighton to check out this guest house, especially if you are considering a faceless chain hotel for the same price.

In my opinion, the George IV strikes a lovely balance between a Hotel and a guest house. My boyfriend and I chose Brighton/George IV as our base for a renunion weekend with friends coming from Europe. After a warm welcome, the owners seemed quite inobtrusive but were only a call away if needed. Rooms very clean, nice bed linen, good attention to detail and breakfast brought to our room each morning.

Also the situation of the George is perfect - being set back from the main road with Regency Square in front of the Hotel therefore minimalising traffic noise but still giving wonderful sea views from the front facing rooms.

We hope to revisit this Spring. Can't wait!

Excellent! I took my wife to Brightoin for the weekend as an early Christmas present. The Huest House was as perfect as could be expected. Big clean and warm room, excellent friendly service, Great location and the view from our room over the old West Pier was lovely to wake up to. Would highly recommend this place, and breakfast.
We will definitely be staying here next time we're in Brighton...... If you hear anything bad about this George IV then ignore it.

Room Tip: Room 3 was perfect

You have to accept that staying anywhere in Brighton is very expensive and parking is a total nightmare. That said the George IV is in very good location, a short walk into the town centre, and the accommodation is of a high standard. The owners were very welcoming. The breakfast is an additional cost and served in your room. The premises has a lift. There is a secure car park at the rear of the premises run by a company called regency secure parking which costs £10 for 24 hours and which we found very reasonable. We would definitely consider staying there again.
