"Historic old hotel across from Brighton seafront"
Having stayed in The Old Ship hotel before, I knew what to expect and it's in a great location, within a few minutes walk into the centre of Brighton, near lots of restaurants, cafes and bars. Right across the road from the seafront and a stroll away from the famous Brighton Pier. Don't expect luxury, it's a basic, old historic hotel, but with a very good cocktail bar and small guest gym. There is no spa or swimming pool and rooms are rather dated, basic accomodation, but quite comfortable. This is the oldest hotel in Brighton and has lots of interesting history, so may be of interest to those who would rather stay in a landmark than a more modern, trendy place. I always find the best room rates here, which is often difficult for other hotels near the seafront which I find are too expensive. I usually stay here when in Brighton for the convenient location and choose a high floor as it can get noisy outside, especially at weekends, as Brighton is busy. The hotel is within walking distance of the train station and all the town centre shops. I've never eaten in the hotel restaurant, but breakfast is about £13 or £14 if not included room rate, so I recommend local cafes which serve a cheaper option. I'll definitely be staying here again, good value and friendly staff. I was even offered a free drink in the bar voucher, which was a nice touch.

Amazing staff at the restaurant and ex sailor greeted us and provided our girls with gifts! Check in was fast and our room was spacious even by North American standards. We had a blast exploring and playing on the Pier. We so hope to get back to Brighton some day! The included breakfast was so delicious and the staff were very attentive. The views from our room and the breakfast were breathtaking.

Britannia Study Hotel is very well situated, very quiet. The room is comfortable an the bathroom very nice and practical. Breakfast is very good, the breakfast room is clean and comfortable.
The stuff is so friendly and helpful. Thanks to them.
The room was not perfectly clean (hair in the bed/sheets and on the floor + mugs for tea and coffee were not clean). That is the only bad thing we can tell about Britannia Study Hotel.
We recommend this place.

On the south English coast, Brighton is a popular beach destination, especially with Londoners as the train ride between the two cities is less than an hour. The seafront has bars, restaurants, nightclub,s and amusement arcades, as well as two old-fashioned piers. Brighton hosts the Brighton Festival each May, which is the UK's second-largest arts festival.
