    Great location, fine facilities and helpful staff.

    The unbearable high temperature. The central heating kept the room at uncomfortable temperature, even with the radiator turned to the minimum and two windows open -during a cold January night. Just to illustrate this point (I stayed there for a conference) the air conditioning had to be kept on in the conference room on a continuous basis the following day, to fight off the central heating. Apalling energy and environment management (especially the internal environment), a truly 'Hotel from Hell".

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    No enough car parking and it would have been £15 anyway but we had to park a good walk away. Old hotel could do with a refresh esp for the money we paid. Curtains blew back and forward on the seafront room. Batteries run down on the TV remote. Main lift not working when we arrived.

  • Single
    7.4

    Friendly helpful staff. Quiet room. Location.

    No hot water on 1st morning(there was a plumbing problem with the whole hotel apparently) Springs gone in the bed, so noisy & a little uncomfortable. Breakfast not to standard & not worth £10.

  • Couple
    10.0

    Excellent location, very very comfy bed and extremely clean. The staff were very helpful and I could not find a bad word to say about this hotel.

    We had no reason to have any complaints - an excellent experience.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    The hotel room was very modern and clean.

    Some of the main hotel areas were very dated and worn.

  • Single
    6.2

    Not shown on advert but car parking is £15.00 per night breakfast £10 .00 or £1350 if booked at the time

  • Single
    6.6

    Free and paid Internet bandwidth and performance was unworkable. I was going to be working in my room an extra day but got a refund for a derisable service and checked out and into another hotel

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly in the dining room.Thankyou.

    Our room was 151 - the first after a set of Fire Doors. Understandably these doors were closed during the night, but of necessity in frequent use by residents. There was no controlled closure of the doors with the result that throughout the night they constantly slammed shut after every access causing some considerable disturbance.

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    Large availability of well appointed rooms that meant I could accommodate changes to a large group easily. The staff were helpful and responsive and managed my complex booking without a fuss and eveyone in my party had a pleasurable stay.

    No issues to report about the hotel. Some may find it a little too far along the front for easy access to the main shopping areas but it is ideal for the length of the beach and well within walking distance for most.

  • Couple
    6.6

    Staff where helpful once we arrived and room was clean / good size standard.

    Breakfast is poor and the hotel was very noisy. We were woken up 3 times during the night and the complaint the next day was ignored (spoke with reception who said they would investigate and get bak to us, but nothing). I travel a lot and normally enjoy the mecure range - this one is not a great example - Don't expect their usual standards!!

  • Couple

    I had previously stayed on business at several Mecure Hotels and really enjoyed my stays therefore we opted for the Mecure in Brighton as our choice of Hotels. The rooms have alwyays been of high class decor as was the pictures of the rooms on the website for the Mecure Brighton. Unfortunately the rooms did not reflect the website or the standards of other Mecure hotels i have stayed in.

    Unfortunately the rooms did not reflect the website or the standards of other Mecure hotels i have stayed in. The rooms were not modern, no wardrobe, a really old radiator, very poor standard and very expensive for the 1 night stay. The hotel is a very old typical seafront hotel and the rooms reflect the building. On our arrival there was a DJ unloading his equipment from his van for a wedding being held there the same day/night. We were not informed of this when we booked our stay. There were also several hen parties at the hotel which kept us awake throughout the night with banging doors and drunken loud behaviour.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    As a last minute break away for a few days the hotel was good value for money and situated on the sea front.

    No car parking space was available and cost to park at the hotel and nearby car parks quite high.. Would have liked to have dined at the hotel but too expensive when so many alternative venues nearby offering more value for money.

  • Older travelers
    4.2

    Not a thing.

    Room 107 was small very little leg room around the bed.Very hot unable to open window Radiator was turned off by me still to hot.

  • Couple
    7.0

    The staff were very helpful, the breakfast was excellent, the communal areas of the hotel were very nice. Breakfast on sunday was until 12 and we also did not need to check out until 12.

    Our room was very small and very basic for a 4 star hotel. The room was also very cold even with the heating on full heat.

  • Couple
    6.6

    Really well located for pubs, shops and seafront.

    Room quite dusty, no free wifi.
