Historical Traveler Reviews The Granville Hotel Brighton
We stayed at the Granville Hotel for Valantines Weekend this year. It is the most romantic place in Brighton. Great rooms great Jacuzzi in the Bathroom!! The memories just keep making me smile. The staff are discret but very helpful if you require anything. Go and enjoy you will leave relaxed and smiling. Is worth the money definiatly!!
Not all bad, but not worth the price
We booked the Granville because they took dogs and had jacuzzis - we wanted a couple of days R&R before I started a new job. There is no parking which is (for ?150+ a night) a bit of a pain) but the NCP carpark *is* literally next door. Not an eyebrow was lifted at our two large greyhounds (good) but neither did anyone even offer to help us get them, their (equally large) dog beds and bags through the narrow corridors to our room. The staff were very pleasant and breakfast service was cordial and efficient. I am a vegan and still got a full cooked breakfast with no problems. The room was cold and when we arrived the radiator was not even on. It never really got warm, which is not good for a hotel geared at the dirty weekend. The carpet was stained and the tiling in the bathroom had big gaps and cracks next to the bath. The decor and furniture in general had the "showy, but doesn't stand up to 3 seconds' inspection" look of a Changing Rooms makeover. The tables had (unsecured) glass tops. There was a picture light (which didn't work) above an empty spot of wall. The lights that did work had low-energy bulbs in, a nasty cheap touch which did nothing for the ambience. The jacuzzi bath did fit two and worked well. The shower was good but did need to be angled carefully to avoid getting water over the whole floor (no curtain or other barrier was there). The bed and bedding was *very* comfortable.So, was it all bad? No. Was it worth the price? Really, no.
What a gem
We spent a long weekend here. It was wonderful with very helpful staff.
The breakfast is the best we have had within memory and we have travelled all over the world.Our spacious room was at the top of the building and had stunning views out over the sea. We will return....
I stayed at the Granville in March for a romantic weekend and it was lovely. The room was perfect, lovely and clean as was the bathroom which had an amazing bath, and we were staying in a cheaper room so i was really impressed. The view of a church wasn't fantastic but still nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would go back anytime.
Truely Amazing Hotel
We stayed at The Grandville Hotel and had a wonderful and superb experience. The staff were very attentive, the room was excellent. If you are thinking of staying at this hotel , just do it , you will not regret it one bit. I do not know how anybody could love the place atmosphere and the staff.
We arrived at the Granville to be greeted by a sullen receptionist who was too busy chatting on the phone to take us to our rooms. When he had finished his call we were taken to the room. I was shocked at the condition of the room I understand some of the hotel has undergone renovation. Our room hadn't. It looked like something from a cheap porn movie the decor was awful - floor to ceiling pastel pink, cracks in the mirror and a grubby bathroom! This I could of coped with the smell I couldn't. The four psoter beds voile covers obviously hadn't been washed all season and a Glade plug in had been put in as a vague attempt to mask the odour. We left promptly and had a wonderful stay at the Hilton.
A very special Weekend
We decided to have a weekend away and leave our young daughter with her Grandparents. From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed. We did not have one of there Large slended Superior Rooms but a Smaller double at the back of the Hotel overlooking a Small French church. The room really has been done superbly very romantic!! Jacuzzi in the bathroom.
We also eat in the Restaurant under the Hotel, DaDu highly recommended.
The whole weekend was just what we needed and the Granville Hotel really lived up to everything I read in the previous reviews. Go relax and Enjoy.
We are three couples and stayed at the Granville Hotel over the Valentines weekend. The rooms are all different and ours was just romantic. The staff made every effert to make the whole weekend. It was all the small things like the chocs with the champagne that made it so different. We all went our separate ways Friday night but had the best meal of the weekend downstairs from the Hotel on the Saturday night. Highly recommended.
We had the most romantic weekend. The staff at the Hotel were wonderful and the room super, it than the biggest jacuzzi ever:) Highly recommended.
Lovely hotel, perfect for vegetarians
A warm and friendly hotel, with rooms done out in individual themes. The absolute star and the reason to keep going back is the first-class vegetarian restaurant 'Troggs' downstairs and the more informal bistro next door. Staff are delightful, food is superb.

... I drove down to the lanes, where we have to try find a SIM card for mum. At the end of the day we came back empty handed, because we decided that it would be better to use Dad's phone. The rest of the day we just mucked around, nothing interesting ...
... and walked across the road to the beach, where it was slightly windy and rocky, but manageable. So yes, the beach is not miles of sand ... well I guess it is, the grains of sand just haven't been made into grains yet, they're still just rocks, but nonetheless, it's enjoyable, especially on a hot sunny day! Be warned though, just about everyone has that same idea, so there's a good chance you'll be sitting next to a couple making out, an ...
... of myself. It's £10 per person per hour which, wind permitting, gives you enough time to get to West Pier, get mildly chastised by the lifeguards for attempting to paddle through it before heading to Brighton Pier and back to the beach in front of the rental place and all whilst avoiding small children paddling on the shoreline, please. Apparently mowing them down in a ...
... on the other side of the car on the other side of the road. The motorway was not too bad but the town center was killer. It took us a while to find our guesthouse because of all the one way and dead endstreets. We are on the 3rd floor and the girls are on the 4th floor. No elevators. Sarah send I went in search of food, then wandered around The Lanes, a cute pedestrian only tangle of narrow alleyways full of ...
... who swooped up squawking. I was totally alone, and there were no signs of modernity. I could almost imagine an Elizabethan hunting party charging through the field, blowing their hunting horns in hot pursuit of the wild hind. However,by this time, I had been walking for hours with only a 5 minute pub break. I was hot, tired, hungry and my legs were starting to hurt. I turned back to give up and head for the bus, when…. Splop. I couldn’t move my leg. What ...
