Well what can I say, £220 for 2 nights in this place really was really not worth the money to be honest, this place was noisy the rooms are small and was greeted with a few spiders. The bathrooms are small and the showers change temperature every 2 seconds. But mainly what ticked me off was the girl in the... More

All the staff i met were friendly, polite and helpful. When i checked in the male staff member checked if i wanted the wifi code, a hari dryer etc. He... More

We arrived by train from Grantham Lincs and preceded to walk the short distance to the said b&b,which was very pleasant. On arrival we were not greeted or welcomed by anyone and there was no reception area/desk to book in. Eventually someone came and showed us to our room which was No 4 on the first floor. When we entered... More

We booked this place in Brighton with the understanding they offered WiFi in rooms as advertised on hostelworld, hostelbookers, and there own webpage, as younger backpackers we rely quite a bit on internet (staying in touch with home, booking tickets, ect.) After our first night not being able to connect to the WiFi we met up with a staff member... More

In terms of location this place is perfect, being close to the pier and all surrounding traveling needs. staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms don't have irons or ironing boards which was a HUGE let down and the showers small but that's only a small problem as everything else was fine, expect basic and realise you get what you pay...

Myself and a friend have just stayed here for Pride weekend and I can't disagree more with some of the negative reviews. It was a lovely place situated perfectly for the sea front and great value for money. We had a large room at the top complimentary tea coffee and water was left for us. The room was a but... More

Unfortunately when I checked my booking account to make sure I had cancelled it there was no booking on there so I assumed that I had... More

All were clean and beds were comfy, furniture was dated and bathroom was small but for the time we spent there we didn't... More

A price worthy B&B with nice, English speaking staff and clean and functional rooms with good standard. The breakfast was basic but as it was included in the price it was OK. The noise from the stairs and the seagulls outside was disturbing. If you're looking for a cheap, clean and well located B&B this is it.

Very nice stay. You have to bear in mind what you are paying for! For a guest house at 50 quid for a double room you can not expect wonders. The room was spacious and comfortable fully functional and clean. Good bed and pillows, a very pleasant night sleep. The staff is also very attentive and honest. Not the pretentious... More
