From the minute we arrived (to a very warm welcome) we elt very much at home. The staff were lovely and even bothered to organise a packed breakfast for us as we had to leave early in the morning. Would definitely stay here again when in Brighton.
Nothing at all - great location for the lanes, lovely rooms, lovely staff and gorgeous toiletries (which really help when you're travelling with only and luggage).
The members of staff ( Stephanie in particular) were wonderful & very helpful with places. Had a healthy choice for breakfast, more than i expected. Neat & comfortable. Feels like home away from home.
Pleasant casual atmosphere. Clean, well lit room. Nice design. Pretty good breakfast.
The windows in our room did not have any lock whatsoever. The maid left the windows open, which added to a feeling of insecurity. Anyone could have accessed our room through such windows from a balcony which ran along the front of the terrace. Breakfast time was accompanied by musak, which we didn't like. When we complained, however, the music was turned off when the other guests also agreed. The fire alarm went off at 4:00am, and no one was around to attend to it.
The staff were excellent and very friendly!! Breackfast was perfect and there was a great choice to enjoy. Our room, was very awkward to get too and we had to walk up so many stairs which is difficult with luggage. It would not be suitable for elderly people or people who struggle with walking. However the room was very clean and modern with the necessary facilities. We would return again to Brighton and stay at The Oriental.
On the whole it is lovely, tad expensive as my room was tiny, and with a travel cot for my daughter too, there was no spare room. Breakfast was great and I would go there again.
Got to Visit Brighton
Our TV/DVD player didn't work
The hote is in very good location, closed to the downtown, but still quiet. The room was very nice and it was made with good quality of materilas.
Only the view wasnt so good, because windows was looking at a court yard....
Clean, modern and comfortable room.
Breakfast was a little haphazard on second morning but food was good.
long walk from room to bathroom/toilet
The bed was so comfortable and the staff helped me out with my computer problems; was very clean; excellent breakfast and good location
