Star rating:
3 star hotel

4.5

Fresh, modern and excellent-value hotel, especially for families.

The Brighton branch of this successful chain of no-nonsense, mid-market hotels is a real winner if you’re on a budget. It’s further from the seafront than my other recommendations, but don’t worry – it’ll still take you less than 15 minutes to walk to the beach, as long as you’re not too distracted by all the interesting shops and cafés along the way.

Location

The hotel is in Brighton’s shiny new urban development, New England Quarter, near the station. If you’re travelling to Brighton by train, you’ll see it just before you pull into the platform.

Bedrooms

The hotel has more than 200 modern, functional rooms. They’re larger and more attractive than you might expect, with space for a single bed or a sofabed as well as a double, making them great value for families and sharers. Several are specifically designed for wheelchair users. All have air-conditioning and a flat-screen TV. WiFi is available too, but there’s a steep charge for this.

Public areas

Nine conference and seminar rooms are available to hire.

Eating and drinking

Downstairs, there’s a bar, all-day coffee bar and an informal restaurant. They’re pleasant enough but a bit too bland to have much of a local following, so they’re rarely overcrowded. The restaurant is family-friendly and convenient, with child-pleasing dishes, free fruit and colouring packs available on request.

Service

Friendly, but the staff can sometimes seem overstretched.

Who stays there

Families, groups of all sizes, rail travellers and budget-conscious business travellers.
