Tony S. Business - 22/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Excellent service , very helpful staff and rooms very clean A very good place to stay plenty off bars and the main shopping street is 5 min away good restaurants very close as well . Only problem is parking is very very expensive all around Brighton and it’s all so a added cost on your hotel stay were ever you stay so I would come on the train your enjoy it more

Sean Couples - 20/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Rather disappointed with the size of the hotel rooms. Paid extra for a Privilege room which looked much larger with the pictures used on the website. Additionally the privilege rooms were also stated to include bath robes and slippers, neither of which were included in the room

Good stay

Rick G. Couples - 20/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Air con broken, no furniture in room, couldn’t unpack properly, no water pressure in shower, fridge not cold, rubbish fridge, breakfast below average cheap orange juice, sausage and beans poor brands, egg overcooked, breakfast room feels like prison camp, staff where nice but lacked communication about hotel room service, reception to slow when booking in, big ques wanted full refund but only got 1 night refund instead of 2 at least, manager was supposed to call but didn’t to discuss the poor hotel, also hate the lift saying what floor we are going to constantly not a relaxing place and went to another hotel to relax, would you organise a full refund please, prove to me there’s some customer satisfaction by organising a refund

Very poor value for money

Very clean hotel, the room was well laid out and the beds comfortable. The breakfast was good and the staff couldn’t do enough for you. I thought the car parking charge was steep, £25 for one overnight stay.

Great location, but. Breakfast was mediocre at best. Their reservation system does not sync with booking.com, so it took 45 minutes on check in to sort out.

MickW243 18/07/2021 TripAdvisor review

Room very nice. Had free drink under Accor programme - undrinkable house wine the only alcoholic option - not what is expected. Chablis extortionately priced and served with ice as it was warm ! £25 per night to use hotel car park - disgraceful.

Well located, quiet room

We stayed for three nights and found it very pleasant, the single room I stayed in was TINY! Had to move sideways like a crab as it was so small! My friends twin room was not big either, no wardrobe just a small hanging rail, both bathrooms were new an clean, the bar was lovely with the fold back windows overlooking the sea, the staff were very helpful and everywhere was clean with sanitizer everywhere.

Disappointed and mislead

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Philip G 02/09/2020 TripAdvisor review

On arrival our room was not ready, but when allocated it was nothing like the room on the web listing. The Classic room on the listing was modern, spacious, had a walk in shower and Illy coffee machine. Our room was small, pokey and had neither the walk in shower or Illy coffee machine. The room was large enough for one person and dated. I had to ask reception for some toilet roll and told the lady on reception that it wasn,t the room on the web page and didn't have the coffee machine. She said it was a Classic room and they don't have coffee machines. I showed her the listing and she just said I will tell my manager because that is wrong. The restaurant was not open and the bar was pretty poor. Apart from the reception area the rest of the hotel was pretty tired. If I had known this beforehand I would not have booked this hotel.

Two Night Stay

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Barrit20 26/07/2020 TripAdvisor review

We booked sea view room and had fabulous weather, so was justified. However, thought we woke to a sea mist, but this was due to the windows needing a clean! It was 2nd floor, so possibly a problem. Hotel had lovely character. Due to Covid, our room was not made up. Not an issue, except we ran out of bathroom items very quickly. Would have been nice if they told us when checking in, or left double amount in the room. Position is a slow 25 minute walk from the station and right by the BA tower, which was excellent for us. Room was small and did not have any drawers, so could be an issue for longer stays, but was comfortable and we slept well. Lovely walk-in shower, but water was slow to drain. Overall enjoyed our stay and would return.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at the Mercure Brighton Seafront Hotel.

Excellent Night Away

markhh0rn 20/07/2020 TripAdvisor review

The staff throughout our stay were very friendly and accommodating. The room was comfortable and perfect for a night in Brighton. I would have loved to spend time in the hotel's bar but understandably it is currently closed. Luckily though the hotel is just a short stroll away from everything Brighton has to offer.

Dear Mark Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at the Mercure Brighton Seafront Hotel. We very much appreciate your feedback and it is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback I'm sorry the bar was closed during your stay , a precautionary measure during these difficult times but I'm glad to report it is now open.
