- Very Good
The owner was very helpful and answered any questions I had within a couple of hours. The flat was in a perfect location. Underground car park right out the front, also if you were lucky to get a space, parking outside the flat on main road although I don't know the parking costs for that. I would suggest googling for parking and booking beforehand as it's cheaper. It was a few minutes walking distance to seafront or the road behind had various restaurants and The Lanes was in close proximity too. The flat itself was immaculate. Very clean and gave us that cozy welcoming feel. We never needed for anything as it was all supplied there. So glad we were able to gain entry via a keysafe rather than meet owner as we got held up in traffic so no panicking about meeting up with owner. One thing I feel I have to mention is the mattress was too firm for us and we were unable to sleep due to it being so uncomfortable plus my husband is 6ft tall and his feet couldn't hang off the end of the bed due to a board at the end of the bed. Maybe the option of a soft mattress topper might help those who prefer a softer bed, especially for people like me with back and knee problems. We decided to try the sofa bed because of this but the part that pulls out was even firmer so I had to try and squeeze onto the end corner part where it was softer. But that's a personal preference for us and wouldn't stop us from renting here again for a night or two in the future. We loved it and would definitely go back. Please feel free to ask us any questions.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your feedback. I'm really glad that you had a good time overall and you enjoyed the apartment and Brighton. I'm very sorry to hear that you found the bed too firm. This is a tricky one as different people prefer different levels of firmness (I have already had someone contact me in response to your review saying "We're coming in two weeks, we love a firm bed, please don't change anything!"). The mattress is a Hypnos hotel quality one - the same used in every Premier Inn and many other hotels. I have taken your advice and purchased a soft mattress topper which is not in the property should anyone want to use it. Many thanks Simon
“Excellently presented apartment with all facilities.”
Stayed here for a week over the Aug Bank Holiday, this place has everything, location, facilities, space and quality. Would stay here again in a heartbeat, in fact booked up for next year already.
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your review! And thank you for choosing Regency Retreat. You were a perfect guest and we look forward to seeing you again next year!
Had the best time. Lovely apartment with everything you need, a real home from home, with the added benefit of being in the perfect location. Great views from the balcony. Would absolutely recommend staying here. Hope to be back next year.
Owner's reply: Thanks Laura! I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay! I hope to see you next year. Thank you! Simon
“Perfect Brighton Apartment”
We loved Regency Retreat. Perfect location and apartment splendid. Beautiful spacious living room, really comfortable bed and fab shower. Simon was extremely helpful. Thankyou we really enjoyed our stay.
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your review! And thank you for choosing Regency Retreat. You were a perfect guest and we hope to see you again soon!
Fantastic host, lovely apartment, perfect location! Would defiantly stay again, can't fault anything at all!
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. I'm really glad you enjoyed your stay in Brighton.
Fabulous apartment in a brilliant central location. Had everything we needed and was in walking distance of everywhere we wanted to go. The only negatives were the broken bin and extra door locks hanging off but didn't ruin the stay. Would definitely stay again
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. I'm really glad that you enjoyed your stay. We have since replaced the bin and regarding the escutcheons which didn't fully cover the keyholes; we spent three days cutting out squares in both sides of the door around the two locks, then making wooden pieces to fit into the new square holes perfectly, gluing those in, then drilling new circular holes for the keys to fit through, then sanding, priming and painting it all. The escutcheons fit perfectly now. Thank you Simon
“Great apartment with Victorian charm”
Lovely apartment on the first floor in a Victorian terraced street overlooking Regency Square with a huge bay window with side views to the sea and near to the new 'I' 360 observation tower. Great position near to the sea and walking distance to the town centre and the lanes. It had a fully equipped kitchen (no washing machine) and beautiful bathroom. Bedroom was ok but sadly the bed was very uncomfortable and we woke each day with terrible back ache! The only thing that let the apartment down was the shabby entrance hall and stairway. It was clean but in dire need of a lick of paint and a new carpet. Also another worrying point was the main front door was often left open by other residents of the building which was a little disturbing with regards to security as there were a few ' undesirables' often hanging around the square area. Parking in Brighton is a bit of an issue. We payed £80 for the week in a nearby private car park. It's all permit only parking. Overall a great week. Would definetely recommend.
Owner's reply: Hi Julia I'm sorry to hear that the mattress isn't to your taste. This is a very expensive top spec Hypnos hotel standard mattress (the same one used in Premier Inn nationwide). All of the other reviews we've had about the mattress have said how good it is. When myself and my family have stayed there we've always slept very well. Re-decoration of the hall and stairs including carpets is all paid for and is due to begin shortly. (Persuading and then getting the money out of 8 flats has taken ages but it's now paid for an due to start). I have asked the maintenance company to increase the strength of the spring on the front door. It should close automatically. This will be fixed this week. Thank you Simon
Regency Retreat was absolutely wonderful. Beautiful decor and layout, clean, comfy and surprisingly quiet. I have definitely bookmarked you for further bookings. Thank you very much for a more than pleasant stay.
“An excellent apartment, in a great location with great views”
We really enjoyed our stay on the Brighton seafront in this quite luxurious apartment, and right in the heart of the city. We were a bit concerned as taking our young baby we needed to set up the travel cot, but the huge living room and very nice sized bedroom provided plenty of space for her to play and for her cot. High-end bathroom and kitchen and the whole place is very clean. Parking is easy with a private secure car park across the way. And a less than one minute walk to the seafront means you have great views from the balcony overlooking the gardens and seafront. Loads of places to eat around the corner, so again we were very happy with the location. Highly recommened.
