Stayed at the Old Palace Guest House for two nights and we were very happy upon arrival. The staff were very friendly and our room was perfect. We had a view of the Brighton Wheel and the sea from our window. The room was spacious and clean and in the perfect location when it comes to going to the Sea... More

Stayed overnight on a quick visit to Brighton and paid £70 for bed and breakfast for three. Rooms spotlessly clean and hosts could not be any nicer. They really go beyond the call of duty to please their guests. Only downside is parking meters everywhere and we had to park the car a walk away from the room. Well worth... More

Spent a long weekend here to celebrate my birthday. This year I wanted something closer to the main areas and found a good deal at this B&B so decided to try it out. After reading some the the reviews I was unsure what to expect, however. We found the staff very accommodating and they seemed quite keen to make sure... More

Brighton is a great place and here you are right in the middle of all the action, The hotel couldn't be better situated if you like to sample the bars cafes and other venues of kemptown. It was a short walk (100m) to the beach, pier, and two short blocks from town center and very close to Bond street and... More

We received a warm welcome and found everything we needed here & in a great location. It was clear that the owners and staff were interested that we enjoyed our stay and they try to make the very best of their facilities. The room, although a little basic and slightly rough around some edges, was spotlessly clean and the beds... More

Apart from the fact that there was no parking and a rather shabby exterior of both properties, the rooms were spotless and cleaned each day, the staff very, very friendly. The breakfast was served in the guest house next door and, again, whilst shabby looking from the outside, the food was good and the service excellent. £60 a night for... More

stayed on new year's eve and therefore expected it to be overpriced and slightly noisy. However, the room was quite unclean and the bathroom was shockingly small. We did not want to stay for breakfast due to the look of the guest house next door which was serving the breakfast. Walls are so thin we could hear the couple in... More
