The Grapevine Hotel2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Absolutely awful and colleague has multiple insect bites after sleeping in the bed under the TV in room 10. Coats on shelf covered in dust and needed to be dry cleaned after - cracked tiles, damaged floor tiles near sink which needed to be covered to prevent injury, light falling off wall - yes, it was cheap and you only get what you pay for but you certainly don't expect to come away with multiple insect bites - disgusting!
The moment I walked through the door a man said to me, "well you get what you pay for ". Not true, I didn't pay for missing shower tiles, water damaged ceiling and dangerous light fittings, (maybe these were extras) Obviously not rated by the AA as they don't do less than 1.
Easily the worst hotel I've stayed at in London after 15 years of traveling there. Rooms are microscopic to point where I couldn't fully extend on the bed. Doors are flimsy with weak locks. You hear everything in the hotel although thankfully few people spend any time there. Wasn't clean and I had the added benefit of the toilet missing the seat in my room. Not good at any price. Should be closed down for safety reasons if nothing else.
i'd rather sleep outside than stay here. moved after one night - room tiny, which wouldn't have been a problem if it had been clean. a used mug lying beside the kettle, lid fell off the bin when i tried to open it, nowhere to hang clothes. It was supposed to be en suite but only had shower and hand basin in room, had to go onto a small landing off of which were two cupboards made into toilets. the room next to me didn't even have a lock on the door so anyone could have walked in. But the uninvited guests, in the shape of some sort of brown bugs around the bed area, were the final straw. Never again!
I stayed here for two nights with my husband and baby the rooms are disgusting with no where to put anything and no room for a baby cot. The carpets are filthy and the bathroom is a broom cupboard consist off a toilet shower and sink with a terrible smell and only got left one towel. The pictures on line are not what you get the place is a disaster with electric points smashed the whole place is in need of a refurb.
I stayed here on 20/07 /2017, it is a fire hazard, I was in room number 7, there were bars on the window, so if there was a fire you could not get out. The very small room was filthy, the shower and toilet were smelly, I would not tell my worst enemy about this hotel, when I complained to the manager, he said what do you expect for the price I paid.
Lets be honest. This place is loud, colourful people and next to an all night cafe. The room is functional and very very basic. I could create a list of negatives. For example personally witnessed people pucking out front and my door didn't lock when shut. But the room was clean enough for what it was. The positive apart from leaving alive is that you are on the sea front of Brighton and it's cheap. Also the staff were very helpful. In short if you want a quiet nights sleep on the sea front then this hotel is not for you.
I checked into this hotel and within 5 hours I checked out again. This hotel is connected with the one next door so you have to check in at the Sheriff hotel. My room and bathroom were ridiculously small which is fine with me but I don't think a larger person would have been able to fit in there. As soon as I opened the bathroom door the smell was horrendous. It was a musty, mouldy smell which after being in the room for a couple of hours was making me feel really sick. I was unable to use the shower as the water went straight from the head to the wall opposite without even touching me and there was a leak so most of it came out sideways. The maintenance person said he already knew that was a problem in this room. I asked to change rooms but there were none available hence finding somewhere else in the same area to stay (and cheaper also). I visited the next day to ask for a refund which the manager said had already been issued. There was no issue with this so I'm assuming it happens a lot. Stay elsewhere.
Please take note of other reviews. This place is horrendous. Smelly, dirty, stained bedding, carpet filthy and to top it off an army of ants in the bathroom! ANTS!! The carpet was that bad I would not stand innit barefoot! Book at your peril it's awful SERIOUSLY!
Stayed in room #9. The room is alright: it's very tiny, but it has a sink, a functional shower with good pressure and hot water, a full-size window, and a TV. However, problems started as soon as I went to sleep; I was itchy all night, and woke up covered with bed bug bites (I've dealt with bed bugs before in my life; I am confident it's them). Horrible experience. The hotel location is good (6 min walk from the Victoria Station, 20 min walk from the Big Ben), and complimentary breakfast was good too. But the bed bug problem really makes these things irrelevant.
