... to help us. By this time we had 2 minutes til our tube arrived, and the guy said it was 9 minutes til the next one came. So I'm freaking out getting upset and telling him we have no time otherwise we'll miss our train. The guy pushes people out of the way shouting she's going to miss her train, and cuts people off then gets the ticket. We're running down the stairs and I'm yelling at Nicola to run faster because the doors were closing. We ...

Then it was straight through security, thought they were going to stop me regarding taking my needle through however they were completely fine with it....

The first week we're not allowed to study the fun stuff, like tourism, english cuisine, slang etc., we have to do the essential studying of english. I have Learning Skills and Grammar/Vocabulary. The learning skills I think I already know a lot of (I've studied in college, c'mon) but I'm surprised how bad I am at grammar. Holy ****, I'm rubbish! When they speak ...
... still felt energetic so decided to walk to the "other" pier, in Eastbourne. Walked down to the front and along the promenade to the pier to again walk through the arcades and carnies to the end. There were a number of long line fishermen at the end of the pier and we watched them haul up multiple fish on one line. The evening ended with hugs all around as Brian and Jan would be gone by the time we got rolling. A wonderful visit to ...

We then went Royal Pavilion so off we went into the streets of Brighton. We knew the general direction, so we headed there, we found a beautiful maze of little lane ways full of small shops and cafes. We continued on as time was at a premium, we wanted to get back to London (Kingston) before rush hour.

Historical Traveler Reviews Grey's Hotel Brighton
My parents stayed at Grey's for 6 days and were totally happy with the accomodation. Terry was always very welcoming and served a very nice breakfast. Apparently the fresh cut fruit salad was the highlight of every breakfast.
On the last morning they had to leave very early in the morning, around six, and Terry got up and made them some coffee and again a delicious fruit salad.
The only little downside, the door of the room, king size room, was not sealed properly and so light was shining through all night.
Thank you very much for a pleasant stay.
Fantastic Few Day's
My boyfriend and I recently stayed at this lovely hotel for a few days. Terry, the owner, was very welcoming and friendly.
The hotel has been recently refurbished and extremely well designed, we stayed in room 7 which had a modern four poster, lovely bedding and inch thick carpets. The hotel itself has been put together with great attention to detail and is stylish without being too serious.
All of this and the wonderful breakfast (everything ranging from fresh fruit salad and pastries to the good old full English) meant that we had a great stay and would not hesitate to return or recommend the Grey's to others.
Mi novio y yo recientemente nos alojamos en este encantador hotel por un par de días. Terry, la dueña, era muy acogedora y simpática. El hotel había sido reformado recientemente, y extremadamente bien diseñado. Nos alojamos en la habitación 7, la cual tenía una moderna cama de 4 pilares, fabulosa ropa de cama y gruesas moquetas de 2.5 cm. El hotel en sí, lo han conformado poniendo gran atención al detalle, y tiene estilo sin ser muy serio. Todo eso, y un maravilloso desayuno (con todo, desde ensalada de fruta fresca y pastelitos, hasta el tan bueno y conocido desayuno inglés completo), quiere decir que tuvimos una genial estancia y no dudaría en regresar o recomendar el Grey´s a los demás.
Fab little hotel
My boyfriend and I stayed at Greys in mid July for two nights.
The hotel is in a great location within easy reach of the town centre and near some great bars and restaurants in Kemp Town.
The owner Terry was lovely as were the guys from London who served us our breakfast. (The breakfasts are good too!)
We booked a standard double which was very well decorated and equipped and perfect for a weekend away.
The parking is a bit of a pain in Brighton but we plonked the car down at the marina as we werent going to use it all weekend and then got the little train back to the pier.
Mi novio y yo nos alojamos en el Grey´s a mediados de julio durante dos noches. El hotel está muy bien ubicado, a una corta distancia del centro de la ciudad y cerca de unos fantásticos bares y restaurantes de la ciudad de Kemp. La dueña Terry, era encantadora, así como los tipos de Londres quienes nos servían el desayuno. (¡Los desayunos también están buenos!) Reservamos una habitación doble, la cual estaba muy bien decorada y equipada, y era perfecta para una escapada de fin de semana. El aparcamiento es algo frustrante en Brighton, pero dejamos el coche en el puerto deportivo ya que no lo íbamos a utilizar durante todo el fin de semana, y así cogimos el trencito de regreso al muelle.
Grey's is a really marvellous find. It's beautifully furnished, and imparts a real sense of luxury and comfort from the moment you walk in the front door. My en-suite bedroom was stylishly appointed, and the bed itself one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The breakfast was excellent, served by the affable host, Terry Sessions, in a bright and most pleasant dining room. All in all, the whole visit was a delight. I shall certainly return.
Grey´s es realmente un maravilloso hallazgo. Está muy bien amueblado, y ofrece una sensación de lujo y comodidad desde el momento en que entras por la puerta principal. Mi habitación con baño privado estaba diseñada con mucho estilo, y la cama en sí, era la más cómoda en la que jamás haya dormido. El desayuno fue excelente, servido por la amable anfitriona, Terry Sessions, en un comedor bien iluminado y muy agradable. En general, toda la estancia fue un encanto. Sin duda regresaré.
Fantástico lugar para alojarse en Brighton
Lo pasé genial alojándome en este hotel. La habitación en la que me alojé era impresionante, cuando entré vi unas ventanas que iban del techo hasta el piso, y una increíble cama de 4 pilares. La decoración era genial, el ambiente fantástico, el desayuno fue el mejor desayuno que haya comido jamás en un hotel, y Terry, la dueña, no podría haber sido más encantadora y servicial. Sin duda regresaré a Brighton y al hotel Grey´s tan pronto como sea posible.
Great place to stay in Brighton
I had a wonderful time staying at this Hotel. The room I stayed in had a real wow factor when I walked in with huge floor to ceiling windows and an amazing four poster bed. The decor was great , the atmosphere was great , the breakfast was the best Hotel breakfast I have had and Terry the owner couldn't have been more charming or helpful. I will definitely return to Brighton and Grey's Hotel as soon as possible.
Great, stylish little hotel
My fiance took me to Brighton for a romantic get away from London and he couldn't have found a better place. It's location is great, a minute from the sea and around 10 minutes walk to all the great restaurants and bars in central Brighton. The hotel had just been renovated (or just opened I think) so all fittings, furnishings, toiletries etc were of a very high standard and very stylish. Our room on the top floor had a gorgeous feature wall and lovely bay windows letting in lots of light and some sea views, a peek in a another room showed a beautiful four poster bed and a different style wall, so you can tell a lot of thought has gone into the finer details in this hotel. Finally, the host was very friendly and helpful; all in all, we were very impressed.
