Host review score

Lola and Luna
The Oriental is in a grade II*-listed building, built around 1825. Once the home to the notorious ‘Brighton Belle’ nightclub we have attracted famous DJ’s from Boy George to Norman Cook. Since taking over ownership in October 2012 Lola has been successfully running The Oriental as a boutique guest house, maintaining its stylish and resonantly Brighton ambience, with a personal and dedicated service.
Lola & Luna are the proprietor and her Boston Terrier. Lola grew up in the hotel industry; her family has been in the bed and breakfast business for over 50 years. Before coming here she spent the previous 10 years working with them in London, gaining knowledge and experience and now brings all that good stuff here. If there’s anything you need or want, don’t hesitate to ask as she is always on hand. She also loves to have a chat so feel free to join her and the team in the lounge for complimentary tea, coffee, juice, soft drinks and home made cake!
The Oriental is a stone’s throw away from the seafront, in between the Bandstand and the West Pier. Situated very close to the i360, the Brighton Centre and less than a 10 min walk into the centre of town where Brighton’s independent shops are located.
