Right on the sea front with the lanes full of pubs, shops and eating places right out the back door. Well equipped and comfortable and the staff were really helpful - I enjoyed our stay here very much!

We were in Brighton for 2 nights and the Thistle Brighton is the perfect hotel for a short stay. Excellent location, great ambience, lovely large room and bath, first class breakfast, and good service. Couldn't ask for a better location: walk to The Lanes, Royal Pavilion, Brighton Pier, and the Hop-on Hop-off bus. We arrived on the train from London and it was merely a 10-15 min. stroll from the railway station to the Thistle. All this at a reasonable price!

Very happy with our stay here, very close to the Lanes, good choice of many eating places close by. Later check out time of 12pm welcome. Modern room with view, clean & comfortable.

Very friendly reception staff who let me into my room early because it was ready. Room very clean and tidy. In Brighton on business in a few months time, will definitely stay again.

We had a great time at the hotel. When we arrived, there was some confusion around where to park, everything thereafter was great. The room was clean and spacious with a great sea view. We spent most of our time outside of the hotel, so I can't really comment on the restaurant, but everything else was fantastic. The shower could have been a bit bigger for a "deluxe" room.

Superb. The room was excellent, overlooking the sea front. The view is great and we were even left a pair of binoculars in the room to watch the world go by. Some reviews mention that the hotel is dirty and in need of a revamp. Not on floor 4 at the front its not! Our room was recently redecorated and spotless. The main atrium and gym are also most impressive. We'd definitely go there again!

Although the Thistle foyet and atrium bar are extremely impressive when you walk in, the standard double rooms are in desperate need of redecoration. The room was comfortable enough with everything you could need but the chipped paintwork, streaks up the walls and very old bath and fittings made us feel like we were staying in a roadside motel, rather than a 4* hotel; therefore, not worth the money. The room overlooked the atrium, so we had to keep the curtains shut the whole time. It was hot and stuffy, and the air-conditioner although working, had to be turned off due to the incredible noise it made. Very noisy in the corridors late at night with drunken revellers returning.

Good Location very close to the Lanes. Nice bedroom, maybe a little warm but large and clean. Good facilities. Did not have breakfast, so unable to comment.

Excellently located, overlooking the sea at the front and the lanes at the rear with shops, restuarants and bars litterally a few steps away. The room was lovely with a super kingsize bed. The only niggles are regarding the bed - the sheet and duvet were for a kingsize bed, so the sheet was not able to be tucked in and the duvet did not fill the duvet cover (did not even cover the bed). The bed was also very very firm. Drinks in the bar are very expensive, but that is to be expected from such a classy hotel. All in all a lovely hotel in a brilliant location and would stay there again.

Excellent rate for quality and location of hotel. Staff friendly and efficient. Restaurant typical of big hotel, great situation looking out on seafront, but expensive. Room spacious and well equipped but air con noisy.

It was necessary for us to change rooms due to the fact that Room 433 had a very large damp patch on the bedroom ceiling. We moved to 435 and there was still evidence of damp on the bathroom ceiling and the bathroom was overdue for a re-fit and thorough clean.
