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 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.
Clean, modern and comfortable room. Breakfast was a little haphazard on second morning but food was good.
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.
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....
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 bed was so comfortable and the staff helped me out with my computer problems; was very clean; excellent breakfast and good location Desks in room could be larger for people who need to do work
long walk from room to bathroom/toilet
Got to Visit Brighton Our TV/DVD player didn't work
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.
Nice location, on Regency Square, by the sea. Very friendly staff.
All staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. As the hotel was quiet we were upgraded to a superior room which was lovely. Excellent breakfast menu. N/A
Excellent and helpful staff. Room is smaller than expected
The staff were fantastically friendly and welcoming and were only too happy to help with recommending places to eat / visit and direct us when we were leaving on the quickest route to the station. The hotel itself was charming, full of character and decorated to a high standard. But what really sets this apart is the people and their attitude and helpfulness. A lovely little find and one I highly recommend to anyone staying in Brighton.
Nice small hotel with excellent staff. We really enjoyed short stay.
Fab all round.Great location near beach and the shop and sights of Brighton. Super decor in bedrooms and public areas. Staff couldn't do enough-recommended local restaurants and even hadcopiesof menus.Superb breakfast and a well stocked bar. Our room was small with a disappointing view,but decor lovely.Possibly a bit overpriced for the room,although I believe the more expensive rooms were fab.
The staff were all friendly and helpful, the room was excellent with a very high standard of design feautures.
Very personal freindly staff, well looked after and attentive Nothing
The staff were incredibly helpful and made me feel very welcome. The breakfast was outstanding and the position was excellent.
Really friendly staff, stylish room, comfortable bed and great breakfast!
Room was very clean and comfortable, plenty of tean and milk you don't always find even in large hotels, staff friendly and helpful. Shared toilet, no net curtains at window
Location was good for centre of town, St. James and the seafront No hot water, room was on the small side, bathroom even smaller!
Most big hotels try to sell you a fantasy about grandness and inevitably a falseness. In contrast, the Marine View Hotel has a warmth and I will remember it. The owner of Marine View and staff were very helpful welcoming and friendly without being intrusive.
location perfect. good breakfast but you cant have any till 9 oclock, i had to be at a conference so I had to eat and be late or don't eat ... my room was to small to have a shower in it but that didnt matter as it didnt work properly and the room was so dirty i only slept there because i had no choice the place had never seen a hoover. There was dirt and dust everywhere , wall paper and paint peeling off the walls. Shared toilet was next to my room i heard everything and it smelt horrid.
nice and close to the beach and shops
Saw a show and Shopped
Very comfortable Parking was a real issue. We managed to find a parking space in the same road but were reluctant to move the car all w/end as there was little chance of finding another space. Traffic wardens were issuing tickets outside the hotel at 09:10 sunday morning.
Not good value for money, you can stay at the thislte hotel on the sea front for the same price and the breakfast was not good would be a better hotel if it was cheaper.
Friendly owner. Good cooked breakfast. The toilet was shared which was not as I expected. The description should have been clearer. I was there for a conference so didn't get back until late every night. I wish the wifi code had been in the room as I never got to use the free wifi.
The location was very close to the city centre and the staff were hospitable and friendly. The room was small and whilst everything was provided it did not feel very good value for money, (£102 per night for two) but perhaps that is just Brighton for you.
Staff was friendly and good location for the gay scene but way to expensive for a B&B
close to beach and pier, nice staff, clean. rooms were tiny but was not bothered as was never hardly in the room
I booked this guest house as it was my partners birthday so I thought I would be a lovely surprse for him as we could just get away to brighton for the weekend and it was gr8. No not at all need a few more pillows but we should have asked though? But besides that small thought it was a gr8 stay would go back again.
Great friendly staff, very nice made as feel at home. Rooms small but very nicely furinished, clean and in excellent condition.
There weren't any The room was dirty, there were huge cracks in the walls & celings, the room was in poor decorative order, the toilet roll holder was broken, there was only one pilow each, there was no where to put our luggage, the coat rack was filthy, they were extremely stingy with the toiletries, they forgot to put the clocks forward on sunday morning, tea toast and juice were rationed, the egg was burnt on the bottom but cold and snotty on the top! There was no bread with breakfast, the sausage (yes just one was mummified), the bacon was cold the tomato was raw underneath and in the middle, the beans were tepid, there was no manager on duty on sunday just one chap that didn't speak english and certainly couldn't cook - also there was nobody to hand the keys to all in all it made for a disappointing stay. Oh yes nearly forgot the bed was extremely small and fit only for midgets and not two fully grown adults! On a final note the keys for the front door were a bit dodgy - fire hazard
The staff were very accomodating and the stay was very enjoyable. The location was excellent and the rooms were nice. I would definately recommend it to others. The bed was small.
Clean room. Thermostat controlled radiator. Comfortable bed. Nice ensuite with good shower. Average breakfast. No wholemeal toast. No Earl Grey tea. No wardrobe in the bedroom - but adequate hanging space on the wall and behind the door for a short stay. Room cleaning appeared to have been done very quickly - basin wasn't cleaned and cups weren't washed. Forgot to replenish tea and milk. It was quite a noisy location and we were disturbed by 'revellers' both nights.
Staff very friendly. Room small but decor very tasteful. Absolutely fine for a couple of nights. Nice breakfast. Great location.
breakfast was spoiled by not enough cutlery for each guest and unhelpful service; rooms were tiny; hotel was overbooked
Staff were friendly, the location was ideal, in a quiet street leading down to the beach and pier, within easy walking distance of the coach stop. Breakfast offered the option of cereals or a cooked English, and the breakfast room was comfortable. The free wifi was fast and reliable. Room 4 was cramped with marks on the wall, presumably from guests scraping against it when trying to get in or out of bed. The digital TV had a limited selection of channels (no BBC1 or BBC2) and switched itself on, loudly, at 3am on our first morning.
The room was well laid out neat and clean. Teh water pressure in the shower was good! The guy cooking breakfast was convinced that everyone (including us) was coming down for breakfast at the pre-arranged time an hour early. However the clocks had moved forward that morning to Britsh Summer time.
The room was spacious and clean. The owner was extremely helpful. Parking can be difficult if you are driving a car. Spaces are not abundant.
The owners are very friendly, the room was basic, but clean.
friendy staff, we had a very big and well furnished room at the top of the building.Breakfast was rich and the location, although not in the real downtown, it's perfect (nice buildings and no noise). no elevator, but it wouldn't suit that building!
Interesting and imaginatively themed decor complete with dvd and high quality tv flat-screen. Very convenient position within walking distance of all facilities. Inadequate shower and rather cramped for two average-sized people.
The staff were so polite and nice. They made it pleasant for us and helped us to find parking and pay cheaper rate no lifts!
could'nt fault a thing - spotlessly clean, excellent facilities, fantastic staff and superb breakfast!! no
Friendly owners and really comfy room. The location was perfect - really close to the sea and the town.
the location was excellent. the host very welcoming and, friendly. permit for car parking provided for just £5 a day. would stay here again.
colson house is central to amenieties only about a 15 min walk to the lanes
Staff at reception and breakfast very friendly and efficient. Breakfast well cooked and served.
