“Fab accommodation with fantastic views”
Visit to Brighton with my wife for football which we won't talk about. We love Brighton and normally book hotels but decided this time to use Holiday Lettings and go self catering. We read previous reviews and chose the Regency Retreat based on these and a good value price for the location. We were not disappointed. Firstly, you should not be put off by the tired exterior of the shared entrance. The quality of the apartment inside was as per the photos on the site. Attached are a few of our own. You had everything and more, towels, linen, kitchen facilities including washing up/dishwasher tablets and even tea/coffee. The living room/lounge is very spacious. There is a full instruction folder for the wifi, TV, heating and soundbar. The bedroom is lovely located in the quieter back room away from traffic noise. The shower is excellent. Location, location, location. A view of the sea and i360. Literally 2 minutes to the seafront promenade, 10-15 minutes to the main shopping area and 20 minutes walk to the train station. We had no problem in getting parking in Regency Square, cost £18 per day but this is the going rate for Brighton. Maybe the timing but JustPark were a lot more expensive for advance booking. Eating out, we did not have to venture far. Beautiful thai meal at Siam Siam on Friday night. 4 minute walk around to Preston Street where there is great choice of restaurants and bars. Saturday night was even closer at the fab Regency restaurant on the corner of the square, seafood heaven and extremely popular. Finally, it would be wrong of me not to mention the owner Simon who responded promptly to all questions prior to our visit but also helped us out when we found ourselves accidentally locked out. Simon was in Switzerland but got his lovely father to call us and within half an hour the cleaner let us in with a spare pair of keys. Cannot recommend the Regency Retreat enough!!
My wife and I had a wonderful time staying at this flat. We will definitely be back again. Beautiful flat, nice and clean. Amazing views and great location.
Lovely apartment, spotless and very comfortable. Looks exactly like the photos. Really lovely location a stones throw from the beach and town centre and a short walk to the pier, lanes and eateries. The balcony was an added bonus and the chair looking out to the sea was a great spot to sit and chill/read. Would definitely go back.
Response from the owner Awesome! I'm so glad you liked it. Thank you for writing this review and we hope to see you again soon. Thanks Simon
“Really beautiful apartment, convenient location.”
This apartment is very clean and comfortable and the location is perfect. The kitchen is well stocked and has everything you need for self catering, although with so many fantastic eateries you might not need to cook! Simon the owner is very friendly and went out of his way to make our stay perfect. We will definitely book again.
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.
Response from the owner 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.
Response from the owner 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.
Response from the owner 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.
Response from the owner 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!
Response from the owner 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
Response from the owner 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
