The outlook from the hotel is great. You'll get a beautiful view of the old pier, either from your room or from the restaurant. Looking out onto the promenade and the sea gives you a fine sense of location.


It's excellently positioned.

You'll find yourself in the heart of Brighton here. Whether you want to stroll along the seafront or head into the city, you can do most things on foot. There are a host of bars and restaurants in the area and the main shopping precinct is just up the roa

Negative Reviews


Get ready for a climb.

Cecil House is an old building, so there is no lift. If you are on one of the upper floors, you'll have to deal with a whole lot of stairs.


You can't get online in your room.

If you want to access the Wi-Fi, you'll have to head to one of the public areas.


Time for a revamp.

The hotel feels a bit dated and in need of freshening up. This includes the bathrooms, where the showers are quite hard to use. For a start, they aren't very powerful and then finding the right temperature is incredibly tricky.
