      Historical Traveler Reviews Kings Hotel Brighton

      Should have stayed at the Thistle!


      Stayed at the King's Hotel 3-6 December. Was quite worried after booking and then reading the reviews on this site. Initial appearance from outside of hotel it does need modernisation. I know most of the hotels in brighton are quite old but they are looked after apart from this one. Once inside reception, there was a horrible strong smell of gone off aftershave, lift is dodgy, carpet is stained in some places and wallpaper tatty in some places. Once in room, things don't get any better with decoration although the bed is one of the most comfortable I have slept in, bathroom needs updating. Breakfast was just about edible, toaster very dodgy if you can get it to work. don't have a problem with doing my own toast (have done that in a top hotel in this country). Staff seemed more interested in gossiping to each other at some points whilst people queued to give room number to sit down and have breakfast. Hated the black shirts and trousers they wore with the red tie!!! 105 per night for a hotel room with sea view is reasonable - provided it isn't at the Kings Hotel!

      By the sea, stain on carpet


      Well this 3* hotel is on the seafront in Brighton and is within easy walking distance of public transport and town centre. The room was comfortable, the breakfast good and plenty of hot water available. However, while the staff were efficient, they were not very friendly (there was a note in the window advertising vacancies). Past the reception and very comfortable bar (green leather sofas) the decor is VERY shabby. Carpets, walls, stairs, doors, lift, bathroom, everything was pretty horrible. Also, a trait I have noticed becoming more and more common in hotels, a liquid soap dispenser (Dove) and a shower-gel dispenser (Lux) attached to the wall in the bathroom. Also toilet roll-holder broken - petty I know, but made it look scruffy. If you are taking someone for a romantic trip away, I think they would consider you a bit of a cheapskate if you took them here - peeling wallpaper and a very unpleasant looking stain on the carpet. TV worked though.

      Rooms were a furnace


      On arrival the reception was quite poor, on going to the rooms the hotel and rooms were very hot. They were so hot that in middle of night had to hire a fan at an additional 20 deposit over th 120 I had already paid. The night manager was churlish and when I left the hotel staff could not find the deposit I had paid and it took about three quarters of an hour to get 20 back.

      Very bad value


      Stayed at this hotel thankfully only for 1 night. Payed 120 for a box room, which was boiling hot and had pigeons keeping us awake all night, which would explain the state of the window sill. Breakfast was inedible, you have to make your own toast! And they charge non residents 12 for the priviledge. Give it a miss and go to one of the more luxurious hotels for the same price. As soulless as a Travel Inn!

      Could give Fawlty Towers a run for your money


      We should have realised from the cold and churlish reception at check-in that this hotel was a farce only capable of decending into a comedy. Decided to spend all the evening out, but was careful to leave the small and crampped little double room in the morning in time to move the car before when we'd been warned the warden was due to arrive. Only to get trapped in the equally cramped lift for half an hour ! Yes really ! Ah well incidents will happen .. but to add insult to injury not only did we get a #60 ticket, but we had to ask for an appolgy from the staff. The best the asst. manager could do was take off a half of the room price only. Well I shall never return.

      Lovely, highly recommended


      What a lovely hotel! I booked a sea-facing double with four poster bed.

      The room was big enough, with adjoining bathroom, and quite large wardrobe. The bed linen was white which made the room look very classy, and everything was immaculately clean. Fluffy towels. Beautiful view of the West Pier from the front windows. Room service menu is limited but very nice food, only about 8 choices I think. The continental brekkie tray was very nice, all the hot toast and croissants wrapped in napkins and lots of mini Baxters jams. Pebbles restaurant downstairs was really impressive, luxuriously decorated and with friendly helpful staff.

      Yummy food too. The King's Hotel is very close to all the shops, just go straight up one of the side hills and you're in the main high street, Western Road. Keep walking east along the sea front and you're in the Lanes shopping area, and close to the Pier and Pavilion. Stay there!



      great location, great food, great service, great rooms, great staff.

      Thank you everyone at The Kings Hotel for a GREAT stay.

      Cosy and comfortable


      Me and my husband stayed over a weekend at the kings hotel.The hotel wasn't as big as some of the hotels on the front but i found it to be cosy and efficient.The staff were very pleasent and it was very good value for money.I will definitely be coming bak to this hotel.

      Very pleasant stay


      We stayed at the Kings over a weekend. We booked a sea-facing double, which to our delight had a 4 poster bed. All the staff seemed very friendly and efficient, and ready to go out of their way to help.

      We treated ourselves to one of the packages available, and had kimono robes, slippers and Champagne waiting in the room for our arrival.

      All in all we had a very romantic weekend that felt very special (we were celebrating our anniversary)!

      We will definately come back!

      Not What It Seems!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


      Reception very pleasant, bar small but sufficient, we paid 110 for the pleasure of staying in a room that i think inmates at woomwoodscrubs would complain about. It was dark cramped and as far as the sea view goes if you can see through the dirt on the windows NICE!!!! do youself a favour look about........

Which is why it it ridiculous when a pint of ice cream cost 5 pounds. Instead we bought microwave cake things and decided to share with Jorge.***Side Note: The way we retrieve each other from our rooms is hilarious.

      Today was a scorcher, a top of 18 degrees so we decided to
      head to the beach. Brighton beach is a train ride away and the only place to go
      on a nice warm day. We walked to the beach and we were met with stones instead
      of sand. Now this was ok until the shoes came off to go get our feet wet. Oh those

      ... br> There are two notable piers in Brighton. The west pier built in 1866 has been closed since 1975. After 2 fires and several storms, all that is left of the pier is the framework of the pavilion and the far end of the pier, but there are plans to restore the pier to its former glory. The Palace Pier, is the most well known part of Brighton and was our next stop. The Palace Pier was built in 1891.The Palace Pier has lots of little shops and restaurants as well ...
