Fine Hotel for a freezing cold Easter break

Despite of a really horrible outside impression, it's quite dirty concrete and in a style more suitable to prison than hotel, the Thistle was a good experience. The reception staff was very polite, friendly and helpful, unfortunately, one of the 2 elevators was broken for the whole 4 days (Easter break), so waiting was tedious and often long. But the corridors to our room were nicely lit and clean and the room (2 double beds) quite spacious. No big frills, bed a little hard, and no extra blankets available. But we had a side view to the sea and Brighton Pier which was great. It was also very quiet, with full occupancy of the hotel a great advantage. What we would like to specially mention is the friendly staff in the Otis Health centre who made an extra welcome for our daughters who were not guests of the hotel. The Wellness facilities are very nice, not big but functional and the sauna and steam room hot as they should be, and the small swimming pool useful. The location of the hotel could not be any better, directly opposite Brighton Pier and by the sea and in close vicinity of the Lanes and restaurants. Seaside or side view rooms are probably larger and offer the good views which rooms towards the Atrium cannot offer.

Past glory

Arrival at the hotel was ok, they have their own parking - with considerable costs. Problem was the room, which was on a corner of the hotel, had problems with the heating and was above some bar. This meant noisy until late at night, and cold.The heating got fixed by the hotel by lending us a portable heater but still. Bathroom was small but functional, although age of the place was evident. Breakfast was very good and overall the people running the place very efficient, helpfull and polite.

Ideal location and well appointed

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!

Great hotel in a wonderful location!

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!

A lovely weekend away

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.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Definitely see the Royal Pavilion. It looks interesting at best from the outside but the inside is far more beautifully and elaborately decorated than any royal residence that I have ever encountered.
