Checking in time too late - 3pm whereas you have to check out by 10.00am. Too wide a gap

Amazing location with spacious, clean rooms - everything you could want for a night or two in Brighton. Bathrooms were a little dated, which was fine but even though they were clean, this made them appear slightly dirty. no car park on site

Room (number 21) was cramped and had no window so there was no natural daylight at was like staying in a subterranean bunker rather than a hotel room! The bed linen and towels were clean but the room was very tired looking and depressing...definitely not somewhere you’d want to spend much time in. Thankfully we were only staying for one night as the thought of staying any longer would’ve been too much to bare. We turned up for breakfast (which we’d already paid for!) at 9:30am only to be told that breakfast had finished even though literature in our room stated that breakfast on this specific day was running until 10am!!...this was very disapponting especially since we’d paid a more expensive room rate to specifically include breakfast (which the hotel prices at £10.95 per guest). We tried to complain twice to the ladies on reception but on both ocassions, guests were making lengthy complaints so we gave up waiting! Overall, not much going for this hotel other than the incredibly central location and the cheap prices although clearly you get what you pay for! Suitable if you just need a room for the night and nothing else but decor, service and standards fall well below what I would consider to be average expectations for a hotel guest in 2019!

Didn't say when booked that that the room would be a cabin without any windows. Apart from that it was OK
