"No dinner"

Friendly staff, easy check in, nice bar, nice restaurant for breakfast. Disappointed no dinner was served, no idea why. Veggie pizza at the bar didn`t do it for me, off to the nearest pub. Room was small but clean, although a little hot with the radiator on all night. On the whole a solid 3* hotel with no issues at all. Also a good location right on the seafront.

"Tired and Rundown Hotel"

Great location but in need of a complete makeover!

Guest rating:


"Ideal central location"

This hotel is ideal for both beach and city centre. On the sea front with lots of promenade walking. Breakfast - very efficient service, full English breakfast was good. Stayed on 5th floor at the back so nice and quiet. Room a little dated, bathroom needs a refresh. Rather expensive for a one night Saturday stay but needs must !!!!

"Asked for a sea view room witch we had but the view was not very good as the windows were so dirty "

Windows were so dirty the sea view was not good I do understand it`s not easy to have really clean windows on a sea front but these Windows looked like they have not been cleaned for a good year or so!!! It`s a shame as we do like the Kings hotel but feel if you pay extra for a view then you should have a clear view without filth!!

"Good value for what we paid"

Upgraded to a sea view room for an extra 10 excellent value. Parking is a premium with the hotel otherwise can be both costly and a lengthy walk. Breakfast was absolutely wonderful value and excellent staff. Bar was quiet for a reason not competitive on price with other bars in town, they would sell more if drink prices were lower. Hotel beds were clean and comfortable. The back half of the hotel was older and needs some attention to the spongy squeaky floor. Overall would definitely stay here again.

"Dingy room, but good location and excellent breakfast."

The double room I had was dark and dingy, due to a small window and scaffolding outside. It was very small - okay for a single person, but would have been hard to get two people in there. The breakfast was really tasty and the location is great for central Brighton.

"A great value sea-front Brighton hotel"

This was our 3rd stay at the hotel and again we were not disappointed. Friendly staff, a good breakfast, a warm, large room and decent en-suite. The sea view was so worth an extra tenner. A good value break. We`ll be back.

"Great location and value"

I booked this hotel 3 days before arrival as an easy overnight option for an event at the Brighton Centre.The twin room I booked was very clean and neat, contemporary decoration in an older build hotel; by which I mean some interesting changes in floor level and a quirky layout of rooms and corridors - none of which was a problem for us.The staff were all friendly and helpful, we enjoyed breakfast which at 6.50 also represented good value for a hotel.Great seafront location with easy access to the city centre shops, restaurants and The Lanes a short amble away (10 minutes).As an easy overnight option to avoid any travel hassle after an event and in a really accessible seafront location this was a great option.Wouldn`t hesitate to stay here again.
