The Oriental Guest Feedback 21/04/10

From the moment we arrived we were greeted in such friendly , but more importantly, natural and unforced way that it was just so easy to feel relaxed……..The room was perfect and tidy, the plentiful information of what was going on in Brighton was totally up to date ……the food was absolutely spot on! ( the vegan option comes highly recommended ) I would recommended The Oriental to anyone staying in Brighton and will definitely be returning.

Brighton Top British Destination

pavilionFashionable, funky and loaded with style, Brighton & Hove has everything you could want – a royal palace, elegant Regency architecture, museums with more, laid-back beach life and superb shopping. These are only a few of the many reason why, after a recent poll of website users,  Travel website Tripadvisor has named Brighton as top English destination voted for by Europeans.

Council tourism bosses are thrilled at the vote, saying it shows the positive effect of marketing campaigns to sell the city hard in Europe and highlights Brighton & Hove’s great tourism offering.

I’ve had to put up with cold water in other  places so hot shower was very welcome! Everyone was friendly  and helpful – Perfect! Thanks
