Stayed at The Iron Duke on Saturday in a very cold and snowy Brighton, my room however could not have been toastier or more comfy! Really friendly bar, lush thai food and close enough to everywhere to just walk, no need for cabs! Stayed in an enormous room with ensuite, freshly decorated and a sea view to boot! The Iron...

So for New Year's Eve my partner and I decided we would go to Brighton and booked the Iron Duke through Last Minute.com. The most recent reviews on Trip Advisor were extremely positive and the photos on The Iron Duke's website looked appealing. However, this was not the case. Upon arrival (11am) we expected to go into the hotel and... More

I chose the Iron Duke for the venue for my 50th Birthday Party on Saturday and was very glad I did! Right from the day I booked it, the staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful with assisting me in the organising of it. Particular mention goes to Peter and Melanie for their help but all the staff without... More

We stayed at the Iron Duke for an overnight about a week ago, and found this pub with rooms above to be an excellent option for a short stay in the Brighton area. Located a stone's throw from the beach in Hove, this tiny, friendly pub provides excellent service from friendly staff. An on-site Thai kitchen provides a decent, well-priced... More

Just returned from a weekend in Brighton. This was our first stay at the Iron Duke but definitely won't be our last. Spotlessly clean rooms, cooked breakfast included in the rate which was freshly cooked and delicious. Staff couldn't have been more helpful and the thai food served in the bar is also very good.

This place is just around the corner from Brighton beach, and a walk into central Brighton so great for a weekend away stay. The rooms are clean and the breakfast was good, the staff are happy to help and the atmosphere in the pub was very friendly.
