This morning I woke up just before 7.00am and Emma was still asleep. I was just about to go and jump in the shower when she stirred so I gave her a feed then ran a bath. I gave her a wash then Matt took her while I had my shower. Matt got in after me then I dried my hair before we went to breakfast at 8.30am.
I ate quickly then left …

Less than 4 weeks to go and so much to do. Working in Brighton for the past 5 months has not been easy especially away from Angela and the children. These last few weeks will be even tougher as Ange is left having to sort out all the items we will be shipping as well as doing all the day to day stuff at home. Anyway, Ange finishes work on Thursday …
... tube over there around 9:15, but we got to the station at 9:30. As Laura and I were walking to swipe our passes, Nicola stopped and said she didn't have a pass. Every station and attendant had a line. We had a 25 minute trip to Victoria Station and then from there we had to find our train. So Laura left to take the tube, and I stayed back to help Nicola get a ticket. She cut in front of a family, but her credit card wasn't being accepted, so we got ...
So this is where the journey begins....
Sat in the departure lounge waiting for a cheeky Wetherspoons breakfast in a lovely new place called the Red Lion. Thought I better have one last true English breakfast before I head off and have to face the appetising plane food.
Checked in instantly, bags were a little over however the lovely lady let me off and also adjusted my seats to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Brighton - Seafront
What a Dump!!!!
I stay away on average 2 days a week in hotels. I had the misfortune to stay at this hotel. The room and decor of the hotel is dated and filthy. I understand the hotel is going through a refurb process starting in July, however there is no excuse for dirty shower curtains, dirty grout and stained carpets. Also the stale smell in the room was terrible --I complained to Holiday Inn about this --and got a reply from the Hotel manager to state that the reduced Internet Rate of £80 a night reflected this state ---do yourself a favour stay at the Hilton or Travel Inns for way better value and more cleanliness
Stay its fine low cost but in some need of repair
I stayed at the hotel for a short break with friends.
I paid £58 per night for a double room, £10 for breakfast and £15 parking. This still represented a lower cost than nearly all the hotels in Brighton.
The hotel has been recently taken over and the rooms are in need of repair. The public areas are not they are very well appointed.
Although in some need of repair, the hotel is immaculately clean and the staff very helpful. Examples of the need for repair in my room were a scratched sink, crinkled wall paper and cut blind. All very minor things.
The service is good and if your anyone apart from the fussiest that spend more time checking the décor rather than enjoying yourself the hotel is great.
I booked the Holiday Inn for 2 nights for my partner and I to spend a long weekend a chance to chill and relax. I booked a Superior King Size Room at £148 pn
I stayed at the Holiday Inn Brighton for 1 night in December 2005 and found the staff unfriendly and downright rude. Be warned, there are lots of extras to pay on top of your initial bill. Car parking is £10 extra and the cost of breakfast which is not on display, is £14.99. This may be acceptable if the breakfast hadn't been cold and lank almost as if it had been cooked the night before. I made polited comments on this not being acceptable but the response was 'I'll pass on your comments'.
I am an Intercontinental Priority Club member, and stayed at the hotel with my wife to celebrate our anniversary. We booked their 'Winter Sale' deal at £35per person dinner, bed & breakfast. The receptionist gave us an upgrade to a sea-view room and we had a complimentary hamper delivered to our room by the Duty Manager. We had a fantastic time and were made to feel like VIPs. The staff were very friendly and the food was great. We look forward to returning next year.
A Bright Future
I am a regular user of the Holiday Inn in Brighton due to business, and was also a regular user of the hotel when it was part of the Hilton chain (at least 10 times per month).
Over the last couple of months I have really started to see the difference the Holiday Inn brand is having on this hotel. After years of neglect under Hilton, it is now getting the TLC that it deserves. Service has improved, food quality is great and they are now in the process of refurbishing all of their rooms. Its great to see a one of Brighton's major hotels actually invest some serious money (over 3.5 million I believe). I look forward to seeing the finished product. Lets hope that other hotels in Brighton take note and follow suit.
A good time was had by all.
Six of us have just returned from a 3 day stay over the New Year holiday. Our rooms were more than adequate and very clean, with tea and coffee making facilities and loads of hot water for showers or baths.
Staff were outstandingly helpful and professional,suggesting and booking restaurants for us. Breakfasts were wonderful.
Re-furbishments are planned and we look forward to our return visit when we expect to be able to upgrade our review to EXCELLENT.
Good Hotel to stay in
Great location for going to the shops and nightlife. Hotel is a bit run down but is being re-furbished very soon. Public areas have be re-decorated which makes the reception/lounge area look very good. We were up-graded to a suite which was lovely, never stayed in such a big bedroom!!
The Receptionist needs a personality transplant but apart from that we had a very enjoyable stay.
Awful hotel - do not stay!
I stay in Holiday Inns all over the world.
Holiday Inn, Brighton, has got to rate as the worst hotel I have ever stayed in.
There was mould growing around the bath in the room. The paint was all cracked and peeling off the ceiling in the bathroom.
The walls are paper thin. You can hear someone in the next door room flush the toilet!
The hotel is very noisy generally.
The double glazing does not shut out the noise of police and ambulances driving along the road outside with their emergency sirens blazing all night.
