« GREAT HOTEL GOOD LOCATION »

Grand looking hotel on the seafront,Good comfortable rooms Breakfast seemed a bit expensive £11 there is a 24 hour service with a evening meal for those who want to dine and a well stocked bar.The staff were very helpful and friendly well worth the stay.

well what can i say such a lovely building but what a dump inside we were put in a room that was no better than a jail cell the lights are dull the bathroom was dirty no lid on the toilet cracked dirty sink cracked shower surround rust on the floor of the shower the toilet never stopped running water till we pulled the flush up only one electric socket in the room no proper place to put the kettel and the worst thing was no air con just a fan so tried to open the door and try as we might could not open it and that was a fire escape .......

« Hotel was ok but not worthy of a 4 star rating »

Room was very tired looking, bathroom very small and had to step in bath for shower. Water not hot on first day. They were going to charge £4 for a bottle of water but a very nice man on reception got us 2 glasses of tap water. I wouldn't stay here again.

« Would not use again »

Of all the hotels we have stayed in the UK and abroad, The Mercure in Brighton is the only one that has had the temerity to charge guests to use their car park. Not only a charge, but the same £18 the municipal car parks charge for 24 hours. Luckily it was full as it worked out cheaper in the end to use the public car park. The hotel was rather hot and sticky due to the lack of any discernable air conditioning. This may have been alleviated somewhat in the seafront facing rooms due to the sea breeze, but was rather uncomfortable in the back facing rooms that had none. Staffing levels seemed too low, or at best poorly utilised. At one stage on the Saturday it took about 20 minutes to get served at the bar. I put no blame on the lone barman who was running his socks off, but should have occurred to management that with a wedding party and a stag do happening, an extra body would be necessary. Similarly, it took 10 minutes to check out as the receptionist was away from the desk sorting out guests' stored luggage. Surely someone should be employed to do this without leaving reception unmanned? Once again, I place no blame on the poor receptionist who I'm sure would have preferred not to be running left, right and centre so her bosses could save money. Vegetarian and vegan options were unimaginitive and seemed more an afterthought than anything else. Whilst we enjoyed our weekend in Brighton, it was in spite of The Mercure rather than because of.

« A visit I would not wish repeat »

Two false fire alarms in two nights - non existent organisation for getting guests out of the hotel and no roll - call. We were not even told we could go back into the hotel after the fire brigade had established it was a false alarm. Restaurant closed to guests (on a very wet night) because " we have two coaches of German tourists" until 2100 and not even bar meals available. I have e-mailed Mercure and have not recieved the courtesy of a reply

« Like fawlty towers without John Cleese  »

The hotel was run down and over priced. The lifts didn't work, the paint was peeling off. The rooms were as run down as the entrance and corridors. Not a nice experience and certainly not in keeping with the Mercure brand.

« Lovely »

Lovely stay, staff were very friendly, clean hotel, very welcoming. Only issues were, that we were staying by the mews area so it was quite nosiy in the evening when there were men stood outside the room. It also took us 20-25 mins to get served at the bar, at one point a lady pushed in frony (We were the only ones waiting before she turned up) and she was seen to first, no appology and the 2 men on the bar were arguing.

Rooms clean and pleasant. Unable to have Windows open because of the Noise from air con unit outside . Unbearably hot. Undercooked eggs, undercooked sausages, undercooked bacon and sour milk for breakfast. Annoyed about it.

« Disappointing »

The hotel was 'tired' and in need of renovation... Only 1 person on the front desk meant guests have to wait to speak to reception. The 'privilege' room we had was very small - I was under the impression it was larger than a standard room so I hate to think how tiny a standard room would be. Choice of TV stations was limited so my husband was disappointed in not being able to watch sports. The lift was not working so carrying our suitcases down from the 3rd floor was a real chore. Our room included breakfast but it looked so unappetising we left without having any.

« Out dated »

The hotel could do with a face life. Great location, staff seemed very stressed. Maybe understaffed, The room was adequate, very warm, no AC and most of the night could hear a generator of some sort. We didn't have a privelage room which was recommended. Overall it served a purpose.

Easy to find. Friendly reception and bar staff. Good enough suite and the bed was comfortable. Thanks!

« Satisfactory  »

Spacious room but we were stuck in the back corner of the hotel, presumably over the service entrance. Que a barrage of loud, foul language early on a Saturday morning. Breakfast was hugely disappointing - we arrived just 30 minutes in but the pastries were finished and not replaced. The advertised veggie sausages were not available. Not great for non pork eaters. Very disappointed.

Hotel was OK but a little tired. Room was a bit basic and dark with no view. facilities in room limited, a bootle of water would have been nice!

« Really good »

Very clean room with excellent view although was a little warm and I was surprised how busy Brighton is so leaving the window open was noisy. Some aspect a little worn out-carpets for example. Breakfast was excellent. In the bar I asked for a dry white wine. The first barman wasn't sure so the second barman suggested one. I should have checked or asked but he gave me the second most expensive glass of wine. At £11 a glass I thought that was a little naughty to do that. Overall would use again.

« Disappointed by tired looking hotel and poor check in experience  »

We arrived mid afternoon following a four hour drive. The receptionist was distracted by a phone call so we were disappointed by the abrupt check in. Greeting or information about the room or meal times. Our impression of the lobby area was that randomly placed furniture added to the feeling we weren't welcome. The room was very clean and well equipped but the devour of dull browns with worn out drapes added to the feeling that the hotel wasn't at its best. Our first impressions were poor and we wished we had booked elsewhere. Our sole purpose was to have a short relaxing break in a comfortable hotel. The positives were the v friendly late night & breakfast staff and high standards of housekeeping in the room.

«  Nice Room but very hot - no Air Con  »

Everything was great but I had to ask twice for the sofa bed to be made up . The second time was at at 10 pm . Also, the sofa bed didn't look appealing and looked like it needed re mewing . Lots of awful stains on the underside.
