  • Group of friends

    The location is good for Brighton bars and clubs. You get your own front door key, so can come and go as you please. Staff are friendly and helpful.

    Make sure you have cash as well, as their card machine was broken and I didn't get to know about it until check out!

  • Older travelers

    Budget option, very helpful owners. Good value for money at the price we paid. Yes, could do with some updating but the bed was clean, the room spotless and the location was very central.

  • Family with children

    Its close to the attractions and beach.

    On arrival staff did not speak much english and didnt quite understand me I was offered a room that was already booked by me at a lower price. The room, was fairly clean, but not enough tea coffee etc, no towels in the room, the bed linen was very crumpled ,ill fitting and duvet's to small for single beds, curtains didnt fit window and windows were draughty. Beds were uncomfortable, the toilet was not fixed to the floor and the shower was damaged, minimum toiletries and tv did not work

  • Group of friends

    perfect location a 2 min walk from the pier. but thats it im affraid

    the hotel is very dated an it was not clean it looked like the floor had not been hooverd ! the breakfast was dreadful we could not eat any of it !! id only recommend this place if your a group of mates going out all not an your not bothered to where you lay your head for the night

  • Family with children

    very comfortable room. very friendly owner who made sure you are comfortable.the personal touch in hospitality.

  • Group of friends

    The lady who runs the hotel is absolutely lovely, so friendly and willing to help (such as providing taxi numbers, keeping cases safe the next day whilst we went into Brighton) and for £30 each with a breakfast (which was very yummy!) for a night in such a great city it was a bargain. I would absolutely stay in Old Palace Hotel again. It was extremely central and we could see the Brighton Eye clearly from our window.

    The hotel is quite small inside, there is not much space the triple room bathroom me and my friends rented or in the kitchen when you go for breakfast however this is just a minor detail and didn't impact on our enjoyment of our stay.

  • Family with children

    Stained carpet. Cracked toilet basin Cramped shower General down market appearance of the entire establishment Although we booked on line they wanted cash payment

  • Group of friends

    Great location - just up road from the pier. Staff were very friendly and breakfast was good although it was served early -8:00 - 8:30.

    I wasn't impressed that I had to pay cash as the card machine was not working. Breakfast was served too early. Poor reciption on the tv.

  • Older travelers


    greeted by a male that was unclean and asked me for cash as soon as i walked in the door...the room was grubby the carpet stained,we were unabled to lock the main window due to the window furniture being broken and missing so had to carry our belongings around with us..breakfast was served by the same person who greeted me at the just careal and toast to be safe and didnt go near it on the 2nd day...all in all was glad to get out of there...

  • Single

    The price was low. The location suited my needs. Free WiFi.

    The description on the web site was misleading to say the least. The hotel was supposedly a 4* but was anything but. The blurb said that there was a view of the garden but there was no garden, just backs of buildings. The wooden window had no handle and there was only a nail to hold it closed. The carpet on the narrow stairs was not clean. There was a musty smell. The breakfast wasent up to much either.

  • Older travelers

    The location was very good.

    The en-suite although very clean, was very small no where to put anything and the towells were not very nice. The breakfast was ok but you had no choice either full english or nothing!! The dining room was too small to cater for the amount of guests, so if you were not on time for breakfast you had too wait, which would have been fine but there was no where to wait. When you entered the guest house it smelt very bad of smoke even though there was no smoking signs every where.

  • Group of friends

    The beds were comfy; towels were changed even though we were only staying 2 nights. We and our friends had the only 2 en-suite rooms in the guest house.

    Generally cramped guesthouse, with narrow stairs and no communal/reception area at all. Carpets tired and stained; no hair dryers in the rooms. Anything other than 'full English' breakfast seemed to pose a challenge, and they can't cope when the small breakfast room is full during the very small period of time when they serve it.

  • Older travelers

    Location location location! Otherwise quite a basic guest house.please note -there is no garden as advertised in the booking details. Comfy beds and nice flat screen tv

    Carpets than ran throughout were in rooms need replacing,the spring escaped through a split in the bedroom chair. Chipped cup on tea tray,thread bare towels and sleep quality terrible as the roof is a meeting place for seagulls who screeched most of the night!

  • Group of friends

    Very friendly staff = helpful. A very nice room. food o.k We had a very nice stay and would book again. The staff could not do more to help and were very very nice people. I would be very happy to recommend. They even carried the luggage and gave us extra tea for the room.

    Nothing - Excellent value for Money

  • Family with children

    The only thing we liked about the guest house was the location.The room was large with 2 singles and one double.In the corner they had made a tiny shower room and toilet where you had to lift up the door to shut it.The carpet was stained and the wardrobe was made out of 3 pieces of pine wood with a rail and no door.It was windy Monday night and we had a window that rattled because there was no catch on it.We were told we had to come down to breakfast at 8.45am so they could cook it.I had bacon,mushrooms and fresh tomatoes.The mushrooms were decimated,the tomato was 1/2 a whole one over cooked and the mushrooms were destroyed.The toast wasn't toasted properly either.The people who run the hotel were very nice but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless desperate.
