Although North Street certainly isn’t the prettiest or quietest street in Brighton, it’s close to absolutely everything in the city centre. The station is less than 10 minutes’ walk away.
The hotel has 160 decent-sized rooms furnished in functional Premier Inn style – so you can expect purple curtains, throws and headboards, sensible desks and simple but practical en-suite bathrooms. Family rooms have a double bed and a sofabed; cots are available on request. WiFi is available, but you have to pay an hourly rate for this.
Eating and drinking
An all-you-can-eat breakfast is served until 9am on weekdays and 10am at weekends, but it isn’t automatically included in the room rate. By booking on a room-only basis, you have the option of heading out to one of Brighton’s many characterful cafés if you’re a late riser or you’re just not keen on canteen-style fare. The restaurant, which also serves snacks and main meals, is a convenient option for families.
The staff are helpful, given that this is a budget place to stay.
