    The room we booked lived up to expectations and we had an excellent view of the sea. The shower was excellent and the bed very comfortable.

    The administration appeared disorganized and after going out one day we returned to find that the room had not been cleaned and had to ask for this to be done. Annoyingly, one of our key cards failed every time after a single use - we gave up having it re-set in the end. The food on offer was good quality, but choice was rather limited and when we required after the specials that the menu encouraged us to ask about, we were told there weren't any. We ordered newspapers, but this only worked on one day. I'm afraid we would not stay there again.

    Drinks at the bar were extortionate, will never buy drinks there again. No mini bar in room, went to make coffee and milk was lumpy so decided against it .

    Location excellent - close to both the South Lanes and the seafront. Staff helped me recover my toiletries I left in my bathroom after checkout

    I was significantly overcharged and proved this with an electronic e- mail confirmation from Booked.net . The reception staff were not authorised to correct the problem and refund me without calling the duty manager. I had paid upfront in full. I had to e-mail the duty manager who told me he needed to check the electronic confirmation and offered no guarantee of any recompense even after that. I was asked to go back the next day to check. When I did so, I was again told by reception they could not help as the duty manager was not there so I should ask the next morning. It then took 15 minutes to check out - the next morning - only one person was on reception. I had booked a taxi with the hotel, which either did not show up or left because my checkout took so long. I was delayed for a meeting by both the checkout delay and taxi no-show. On return after checkout I received no cash refund and was told I had to wait up to four working days. Wifi was available but only through high charges with bt Openzone. I was able to get free wifi one hundred metres away at a local pub

    the location, so close to the seafront, shops and lanes. Also the spa facilities are good, clean and friendly staff.

    No early checkin offered, we arrrived around 12noon, no late weekend so understandable. We discovered the Signature Membership leaflet, but this was not brought to out attention. This would have been Fantastic service if the staff had. We would have happily joined on the Friday, and stayed the extra Sunday to Monday. Never mind. Thank you.

    Love the thistle been there many times when visiting brighton. The location is brilliant- easy reach of beach, pier and lanes. Sea view rooms are lovely and the reception area where you can have drinks is very comfortable and inviting.Staff have always been friendly helpful and professional. Rooms have always been very clean .

    Hotel drinks in reception can be a bit expensive and room prices at some times of year are a bit high but there are always deals to get and it Is worth paying for the location etc.

    Location of hotel is excellent. Other than that, nothing good to say about it

    Reception staff left me waiting for 20 mins to check in......then a second receptionist arrived and immediately saw to someone before me, completely ignoring their own sign to "queue here" Very frustrating indeed. Bathroom had really nasty rust marks on the bath (4* hotel??) and the pillows were like footballs!! Worst nights sleep I've had in a long time.Was told next morning that the pillows were new and I could have asked for a softer one!! .......Instead the hotel should have had a choice of firm or soft pillows, Who's going to ring reception after they've gone to bed and ask for a pillow change!!!!! Average to poor breakfast, all the cooked food was luke warm at best. I stay in Brighton at least once a week on business, will not stay here again

    The room was right over a nightclub and we heard music all night. The toilet overflowed one afternoon( with little paper in it) and we called to have it fixed. Nothing was fixed for 5 hours. We then tried to call again, but no one answered for 20 minutes, my 70 year old mother had to walk to the front desk, wait on a 10 minute line and then she insisted the manager come to the room to fix it. He did and it was fixed, but not a good experience with 2 young children. Finally, there was a loud fire alarm that went off at 7:30 am the last morning we were there, we were instructed to evacuate (again with a 70 year old and 2 young children), we later found out most guests did not evacuate.

    It was spacious relaxing. The staff were very kind to my elderly mother who loved the view of the beach through the windows at the front of the hotel that looks out onto the beach. Our bedroom actually looked inwards into the huge atrium space where again mum enjoyed watching the action below. Everything was very very clean and kept tidy

    I object to having to pay for WiFi. If Thistle want to encourage more elderly travellers they need to make some areas more accessible and provide more accessible doors e.g. to toilets and raise some of the toilets

    The hotel services are all excellent and the location is very good near the seaside.

    The front side of the hotel gives you the impression of emptiness as the reception is on the first floor and thus you do not see the concierge on your arrival and have to help yourself with the luggages.

    The hotel was quiet and pleasantly situated.

    We arrived back at the hotel about 11.00 P.M. after not finding any restaurant open. We thought we could order room service. We were disappointed to be told that there were only plain sandwiches, etc. available 24 hours. It would have been more convenient if we could have ordered chips, etc.

    Superb

    Location is good with great sea views from the restaurant/breakfast area. Full height internal atrium design is interesing and my room looked out on to it. Leisure centre is well looked after and made for a relaxing business break. The menu in the rstaurant was varied and good quality.

    Unfortunately it took about 20 minutes to check out at 12.00pm which appeared to be a staffing or computer problem

    Just about everything about my stay! Love the hotel, location and Brighton and will come again.

    If I was being picky I would say the lighting in the atrium was too dim. Could be enhanced with additional mood lighting.

    Location

    Not value for money. £10 each for breakfast should be included in price of £186 per night! Carpark should also be included. Was shocked no toothpaste included in toiletries. Although the room was comfortable I feel it was not value for the price paid and when we visit Brighton again I'm afraid we will not be using the Thistle hotel.
