Well... here we go... i have never, ever, encountered such Customer Service! We use the The Granville Hotel quite regularly. Our next booking was for September, but there were absolutely no rooms available, due to a company function, but i could not change our visitation dates, due to appointments. I cheekily asked what other hotel/s might have rooms for the...

Friendly staff and great food at Smokey's below the hotel. For a budget hotel was excellent and would recommend. If I had one complaint we were on the 3rd floor so a lot of stairs but was ok for us. Comfy beds and clean room. Would definitely book again.

Was a bit apprehensive about staying at this hotel as someone else had booked it for a group booking, rooms were a lot better than anticipated. The downside to this hotel is the stairs, no lift. Public areas a bit tatty and need of a facelift, but the bedroom was clean, bed comfy, good pillows. Cost wise, very cheap for...

Only stayed for one night. Family of 4 (2 adults & 2 children). First impressions were the same as other reviews. We had to ring the bell and wait for the door to be opened, then we were taken through a series of rooms and doors before we finally arrived at the reception of the Granville next door. There are...

I recently stayed 2 nights at the Cecil with a friend we booked to be near the Brighton centre for an il divo concert. Upon arrival which was very strange we had to ring and wait for someone to open the door, then led through a dilapidated maze of doors and rooms to the reception area which is under renovation....

Went on a Hen weekend and after the reviews read on here I was very reluctant to stay at the hotel. Staying there totally changed my opinion. The hotel is getting slowly refurbished and rooms are looking very nice and most are en suite. The manager told us that advance bookings will always get en suite rooms. Last minute booking...

We booked late for the Brighton Marathon and were really happy with the accommodation. The room was immaculate, clean and was decorated to a really high standard. The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The free Wi-Fi for my daughter was a real bonus.

Rather a disappointment. We were on the fourth floor up, without a lift, which I'd known might happen, but perhaps the staff could offer some help with luggage as a nice touch? On the way up we noticed dozens of places where the wallpaper was peeling and the carpets had many stains. At first glance our bedroom seemed quite nice...
