Interesting reading other reviews of this place, let's get a couple of things straight; a. This is a guest house not a hotel, b. Brighton is short on space. We booked Kemp Townhouse because it was in my accommodation bible aka Alex Polizzi's Black Book so expectations were high and I'm pleased to say we were not disappointed. We had... More

Wonderful friendly welcome, comfortable beds greAt breakfast and really attentive staff, what more can you ask for? The view from our room was lovely sideways down to the sea and the room was thoughtfully and very stylishly decorated.

My friends and I booked the hotel as we were taking part in the Brighton marathon, each of us raising substantial sums for charity and paying the costs involved ourselves. When we checked in we were told that the hotel would not be able to support our request for an early breakfast the morning of the marathon and any requested... More

Dear PH1973, Thanks for your review, and for your visit over the marathon weekend. I am quite disappointed to read about your review particularly as it contradicts everything we discussed during check-in. We have many Marathon runners that weekend and as such have made provision to provide a simple continental such as cereals, toasts tea/coffee and fruits as room service.... More

We stayed in the Kemp Townhouse for 3 nights for our anniversary and marathon weekend. Our room (301) was beautiful with a large and very comfortable and soft four poster bed and amazing standalone bath. It felt like a luxury room and we loved the robes, iPod dock port and bath amenities. Our room felt a bit too hot at... More

As my husband said, you get what it says on the tin. Cosy double rooms are small, but everything you need is there - robes and slippers are a nice touch. Bed was very comfortable with good quality linen. Breakfast was exceptional - lovely room, good service and delicious food cooked to order. The area is fine, and location is... More

Room 2 is small and near the back but it's beautiful designed. The wet room is exactly that and yes the place gets wet but that's par for the course. Every little thing has been thought of,robes, a wrap, hairdryer,tea and ground coffee, a decanter of port, bottles of water, large fluffy towels, a comfortable bed, large television, digital radio...

We enjoyed our visit to the hotel but the only small thing that bugged me was ,that because it was an Amazon Deal we ended up with a very small room. Had i been able to choose i would have chosen one of the larger rooms {with a view} and paid extra for it. None the less the room was... More

First impressions were disappointing – a shabby street full of narrow townhouses, then an anonymous front door at the Kemp Townhouse led into a dingy hallway with scuffed paintwork. We had arrived early so dropped off our bags before returning later, full of apprehension at what our room would be like. We had booked a “spacious Grand Double” room but... More

Dear Polomarco, Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that we have not met your expectations on this occasion. Atlingworth street like many other streets locally is maintained and cleaned daily by the Brighton and Hove council, but apologies if you thought otherwise. We have recently just finished the complete renovation of our front building, including the front... More

I have just returned from a night in this guesthouse, what a treat! I stayed in room 301on the top floor. A large room with four poster bed and enourmous bathtub in the corner of the room. The room is large, beautifully decorated and very well appointed. The bed is super-king size and mattress suportive. As this is a guesthouse... More

A triumph of style over substance. I know estate agents who would blush at describing some of these rooms as doubles. Everything is beautifully done, design wise, but the building is fundamentally unsuited to be a hotel, certainly for anyone of a normal width. Every time the front door closes, the whole place rattles. When the staff start cooking breakfast... More
