« CENTRAL AVEC PARKING »

has seen better days. A renovation program is desperately needed to achieve the basic standards of Mercure Hotels. The staff were attentive and very friendly we chose the hotel because of the locked parking facilities. The hotel is well maintained, excellent beds and has a long history even so all areas should be the object of THE MERCURE renovation program. RRP

« A bit too hot and noisy for sleeping. »

The bedroom was just too hot and opening the windows made it just too noisy. The fan provided was too noisy to sleep with. Room was very clean. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Breakfast including coffee was good. Beds a bit too hard for me and pillows and duvet were stiff and unwielding. Recommendations A few packets of biscuits in room. Handles to hold to get in and out of bath as quite high. Replace shower curtain with door. I spent most of my shower unpeeling the curtain from my body.

« Ideal location »

Our forth time at the Mercure booking prividege balcony room. We find location is ideal for our stay to see family. Staff on reception very professional and room very comfortable, always kept clean. Hotel in desperate need for refurbishment, long overdue. We understand plans for refurb are imminent so look forward to our next stay.

« Lovely staff and food. Shame about lack of sleep! »

We thought the hotel was very nice. Great location. Smooth check in, efficient and obliging staff. The BIG problem was the bedroom. We stayed in room 263. We'd had a busy two days and were looking forward to a good sleep before our return to Herts. However, there was a loud droning noise which was almost constant. It sounded like a helicopter hovering over us and it kept us awake and then woke us even when we managed to doze. We felt wretched in the morning and it completely ruined our stay. I hope somebody will investigate this and maybe offer us an explanation and perhaps compensation of some kind.

« Tired, shabby and dirty »

The fittings and fixtures are very tired and run down in this hotel. Very basic room with few 'extras' which I would expect for the price. Even had to pay for the morning newspaper which again, given the price, would have expected free of charge. Lift to room was very clunky and surroundings to buttons had fallen off. Floor of the lift was very dirty

« Not too bad »

This hotel is in desperate need of modernisation. The carpet in our room (202) was threadbare and the furniture was was very dated. Service was good, breakfast was excellent and our stay was pleasant enough. Not sure that I would rush to book this hotel again, at least not before it has had a bit of an overhaul. The bar tender left me waiting for ten minutes while he cashed up at around 22:55. He then left me standing waiting to be served and said that the night staff would have to serve me!!

« Fine - shabby dirty carpets in reception and broken tiles leading to front door do not give the impression of a 4 star hotel »

Staff fine, friendly and helpful . Room clean but as I have already said grubby carpets in the hotel entrance and comunial areas make a bad impression .

« Lovely staff but the hotel is a little 'tired' and in need of refurbishment »

I enjoyed staying at the Mercure. The staff are lovely and welcoming but the hotel needs some refurbishment. My room was small (so it was difficult to get to the other side of the bed) and the carpet very worn and threadbare. Also the floorboards creaked so much that I was worried about those around or below me being disturbed.

« Good location, well-equipped rooms (though too warm) »

Sea-view location excellent, and rooms were a good size. But for some reason the radiators were turned on to maximum and made the room far too hot (we turned them off). Only downside was that opening the windows meant there was more road-noise, which given the location was generally continuous through the night. Otherwise the stay was very good, reception service efficient and polite, breakfasts were good. No parking available on site, but that was to be expected in Brighton and a good NCP is only a short walk down the road. Conveniently close to the i360.

« `very badly run hotel, level of service awful »

Had to wait ages to check in, a queue of people and only 1 receptionist. Our room was apparently the bridal suite. Balcony was filthy covered in moss. Very old fashioned badly needs updating. No teaspoons for tea/coffee. Awful room service in morning. No hot food at all even though menus for room service. £20 for sandwiches which we could not eat, plastered in butter, crusts cut off hardly any filling. We left them and complained and the car parking charge was deleted in lieu of terrible sandwiches. My mother left her hat and when i asked to collect i was told housekeeping had thrown it away. House keeping have offered to replace it. I would never return or recommend anyone to return. Worst hotel i've stayed in for a long time

« Did not feel like a 4 star experience, very sub-par, room felt like we were in boiler room of ship. »

Our room was very small and tucked away. It felt like it was a small cupboard and it was roasting hot. Extremely hot. When we opened the door the heat hit us - there was a fan on the floor and the window was already open. The window opened onto a very small lightwell that we were at the bottom of, so right outside the window were lots of cigarette butts, a broken window handle, and some rubbish. We were in Brighton for a concert and not spending much time in the hotel apart from sleeping. However the room didn't really serve that purpose as it was so hot. Even with the fan pointing directly at the bed it was too hot all night. We would have raised this in the morning, but to be honest at that point it was too late. When we checked out the receptionist didn't ask us how our stay was either.

The hotel was clean but room was very small and cramped. Staff were approachable and pleasant but reception took a great deal of time and there were the inevitable queues I wanted to eat in the hotel but the bar was neither a bar with food or a restaurant and was confusing so I just had to eat out

« Not what I expected or wanted »

The first thing I'd like to say is that most of the staff were very polite and helpful on the most part. I booked this hotel as we couldn't get into the grand. I feel like the star rating is based solely on the lobby. Upon entering our room I soon realised I'd made a mistake. The first thing I noticed as I approached the room at the end of a dingy corridor was that we could hear people talking from their rooms and that our door (most likely like the others) was not properly fitted and didn't even go down to the floor meaning that we felt like we were still in the public hallway when in our room. Getting past this we opened the door to see the ruined carpet to be the centrepiece of the room, having been scratched apart or something? The bathroom door then didn't open all the way as it hit the toilet. The window was dirty, the curtain was dirtier. It didn't open when we tried to get some air into the room. I sat on the bed and it wheeled away from underneath me. The room was too small to hold enough furniture for our suitcases to be put anywhere and opened. I tried phoning reception from the phone in the room but body picked up so I had to use ,y mobile phone to get through to anyone. We were staying at the hotel to attend a surprise birthday party in hove. The receptionist offered to book me a taxi when I asked for a number so I took them up on the offer. After 20 minutes and no taxi, I asked what was going on and they phoned the company to check (or book us a taxi that had been forgotten to be booked beforehand). Our taxi then took a further 10 minutes, making us 30 minutes late. Usually I wouldn't have been so fussed about asking for a taxi to be booked for a given time and having it turn up half an hour late, but this meant that we arrived to the event at the same time as the guest to whom the whole thing was meant to be a surprise. After a couple of minutes of exceptionally awkward chat consisting mostly of me apologising, we went in together. We then returned later that evening to our small room with undersized bathroom at the end of our dingy corridor to enjoy a good nights sleep. This is where the hotel gained its other point. The bed, although on wheels and appearing exceptionally tacky, was reasonably comfortable. For a room in what I expected to be a nice hotel, that I paid just short of £200 for, I was very dissatisfied.

« Very average overnight stay »

Just needed one night in Brighton visiting relatives. Found it over priced, out dated, shabby room and the hotel smelt like it needed a good clean and quite a few licks of paint.
