Advantages: Right next to sea, 5 mins from pier, easy reach of town centre & shops
Disadvantages: a little pricey - but worth it
I have recently comes back from a long weekend stay in Brighton, so I thought that I would post some info on the Hotel where we stayed.
We originally booked a different hotel, but found that we couldn't stay there as it had a long narrow staircase (no lift) and we couldn't get our pram up the starirs, but we found this one at short notice!
The Lanes Hotel is a nice Hotel on the seafront in a beautiful building, we could see the sea from our room which was nice. It's not far from Brighton Pier (Palace Pier)and an easy walk (10-12 mins into the main town centre. There are also shops and cafes in the street right behind the hotel (St James' Street). I would give it high marks for it's location.
The room was pleasant with ensuite shower/loo/baisin, TV, coffee making facilities, hairdryer, trouser press plenty of room to put your clothes etc. The decor was pretty standard for a hotel, pleasant and homely. There is a bar downstairs at the reception which was reasonably priced and there was also a lounge available.
I was told that it was a family-run hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful and our 5-month-old baby was made very welcome. We had brought a travel cot because we were going to stay elsewhere, but I believe this hotel had a cot available for use, which would save on lugguage carrying if like us you don't have a car. One of the best features is that THERE IS A LIFT, which is great for the elderly, disabled and those with small children in buggies.

The prices may be a little
steep, but for us, it was worth it to be within easy walking distance of the town centre, pier, sea etc. and not to have to struggle up and down several flights of stairs with a heavy buggy.
