Very clean and nice little hotel, with a very friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended, if you can live with the noise from the seagulls and partly the noise which follows when you stay in the middle of an area with bars and restaurants. I will be back for sure.

We stayed here for one night and whilst the room was OK, clean and tidy with TV, hairdryer ironing board etc. the main reason I am awarding Kempfield House 5***** is because of the delightful staff and the cooked-to-order breakfast. The breakfast room was clean, bright and very pleasant with a good array of things to choose from - hot... More

I spent one night at this B&B with my boyfriend. The rooms are clean and contain everything you need but I feel they are overpriced considering they are quite basic with no little finishing touches. We stayed in a small double and there was plenty of space. The hotel information book mentioned a fridge containing wine for us to enjoy.... More

I've just returned from a bank holiday weekend break at the Kempfield House. Excellent location with the Brighton Wheel, seafront and pier just at the end of the road and a great choice of restaurants and bars on the door step. Our room was a four poster superior room at the back of the building so no noise to speak... More

This hotel (more like a cross between a guest house and hostel) is grossly overpriced and is in no way a 4 star hotel. We stayed in the superior double. The beds are like those children sleep in; uncomfortable and hard. The bedding was stained. The décor is shabby and there is only a rail on which to hang clothes.... More

Booked this for an overnight stay in Brighton as had tickets for a gig at St George's Church. This hotel is in a perfect location for both this venue, the beach and the town centre. We were fortunate to get a parking space outside the hotel which we felt was reasonably priced for a whole day's parking. We didn't need... More
