lovel room, comfortable bed and great location
The room is really nice and clean. Nice English design room with clean and modern bathroom. Wall is a bit thin though because we can hear people next door talking etc.

Very nice Hotel
Clean, Centrally located, Beautiful rooms
We had a good stay at the royal york hotel however just make sure you get a room that has air conditioning in it,through out the night it was getting very stuffy, they had a portable fan but this was too noisy and didn't really do the job. The windows in the room were also not that great, it was annoying when you are trying to sleep but you can hear all the noise from the outside! One thing i loved the most was how the room looked it was a twist between modern and antique which was really nice.

helpful staff nice hotel
staff were very helpful, nice breakfast, good location for the laines and seafront
before we arrived contacted htel as check in time is 3pm and we had a wedding to attend at 2pm the young girl on reception was very understanding and helpful she called back within half an hr to let us know for we could have an early check in of 10am which was a life saver. when we arrived we wre given room 203 i think it was , it was ok but looked smaller than what id seen on the website so i called reception and explained and the helpful gentleman gave me another 3 rooms to view one of which was 2 dors along but much brighter and bigger so moved to that one . decor is vintage looking which i like though some things couldve done with a lick of paint etc unless it was purposefully shabby chic?! the continental breakfast was very nice and the lounge room was also period style and really nice. just a short walk away is the laines and the hotel is a stones throw from the beach right near the pier. only downside is the hotel has no parking facility and brighton is expensive for parking! all in all we had a very pleasant stay at the royal york hotel
