Hotel was very well situated, however, noise from lots of drunks throughout the night passing by outside was not good. We both found the hotel to be very good

Lovely hotel and location but a bit tired

Pros: Location, staff, especially the car park attendents
Cons: Plumbing!
Location: Very close to beach, pier, city centre and the Laines
We have stayed at the Ship before, quite a few years ago though. Overall we had an enjoyable experience apart from one disappointing situation. On our first day there we returned to the hotel around 7.30pm to get ready to go out for our evening meal and there was no hot water for a bath or shower. There is a sign in the bathroom stating it may take some time for the water to run hot and I left it running for a long time but it never got hotter than warm. I contacted reception who said it may be isolated to our floor (3rd), unlikely, and they would check the temperature on the 2nd floor. However the water was not running hot on this floor either. The hotel eventually compensated us by providing drinks token for the bar rather than refunding some of the cost of the room. I understand that the Ship is the oldest hotel in Brighton but given it's size and room charge I would expect there to be hot water!

Dear Karen, Thank you for your review. One of the boilers did have a fault on, therefore the water run luke warn for 20 minutes. When we made aware, second boiler was turned on and hot water restored. Do apologise for the inconvenience this has caused you.

Ok ok hotel

Yes it’s not bad hotel but I won’t say it’s 4 star. I would class as 2.5 or 3 star. Good points: it’s close to beach. And it has good selection of breakfast. Bad points: Hotel has a garage to park but it’s expensive. It’s average in terms of cleaning and facity.

Dear Priyesh, thank you for your review. hotels are awarded their star rating independently. we do advertise that there is a parking charge, this is an average of the overnight car park charge in Brighton.

Très bel hotel. Certes ancien mais bien entretenu, les chambres sont spacieuses (un luxe au Royaume-Uni), propres et très confortables. Très bien placé au centre de Brighton et en bord de mer. Une belle surprise et une adresse de choix à Brighton!

Schönes Hotel mit Stil in Top Lage. Zimmer war recht frisch renoviert und sehr sauber. Einziger Nachteil am Zimmer ist, dass sich das Fenster nicht sehr weit öffnen lässt. Das Personal war freundlich und hilfsbereit.
