(view from our room)
On our second night during our Brighton trip were invited to use Laterooms.com to book a place (read about our first night here and some snap shots here). We opted for the Ibis which was £120 for a family room that had a double bed and a double sofa bed for Wilf. The room itself was massive with enough room to fit a decent size bathroom, both beds, storage and a desk looking over the roof tops of Brighton. Having looked at the Ibis directly I think we made a saving of about £28 by going through the Laterooms site instead.
When I arrived I found this beautiful Liberty's suitcase waiting for me full of tea and coffee, what a treat!
Whilst I am generally a fan of a boutique hotel I do love places like this for knowing exactly what you are going to get, that the quality will be good, the place spotless and the staff friendly and competent. I have to say the Ibis actually has some great furniture and interior design like replica Eames chairs and Polaroid style wallpaper. The staff were all beyond helpful and friendly and we overheard that one of the kitchen staff has actually been hired after selling the big issue locally and offered a job which made me like the branch even more.
We left our luggage there during our wander around on the last day and grabbed a coffee before our train. The cafe was quiet so the staff were really chatty and flittered between coo-ing over Wilf to trying to show him how to play a game. Location wise this hotel is perfect for train access especially if you have a bit of luggage with you as it's about 5 minutes from the station.
The process of booking though Laterooms.com was really easy to navigate with lots of choice of accommodation to book depending on your budget and preference. I didn't realise that you could use them to book hotels all over the world which makes things even easier when planning a holiday. We'll certainly be using them again for a late minute break.
On that note they actually have some pretty good Easter deals if you fancy a peek here.
