We stayed for one night mid week on a Brighton get away. This guest house is clean, central and has some nice extra touches. The room was large and comfortable as was the bed. The free refreshments and a mini bottle of wine was an added bonus. The breakfast was good and there was a wide choice for cooked breakfast.... More

I stayed here in august with my partner. The guesthouse is in a great location, only a minute away from the beach and shops are in close proximity. Staff could not do enough for you. We were particularly surprised at how quite it was in the guesthouse as it was full when we stayed and the location is very central.... More

We have just arrived back from a lovely stay at Kempfield House. The reception staff were very helpful and polite, making sure that you are comfortable and offering to give you tourist advice. We stayed in the withdean room which was exceptional for the money that we paid (£75) We arrived to a bottle of wine and some chocolates which... More

I visited Brighton recently as a couple and stayed at this lovely guesthouse. The rooms were lovely with great little touches and ours faced the street where there was always some noise. We liked being in the middle of everything so was not a problem for us but I can imagine others may not like this. The house is a... More

I stayed here with my Sister and it is a great place if you want a central location and good value. Also only an additional 10 pounds for 24 hour parking which is well worth it in central Brighton. The rooms are clean and great little touches like wine and water in the room (no extra charge) and there is... More

We had to have a late check in which wasn't a problem. Was emailed all the details and our key was on our bed. We stayed in Stanmer room which had a four poster bed. The room was a good size and the bed really comfortable. The extra little touches of wine and chocolates on the bed and bottles of... More

We stayed here for one night this week, I wish we could have stayed longer. We were greeted with a very warm welcome. Very friendly people. The room was comfortable room with good facilities. We felt it was very good value for money. When we go back to Brighton we will definitely be staying there again

Went here on a Thursday night with a friend, so we booked a twin room. Location is very good. Easy to find, just look for the 'Big Wheel'. I was going to arrive later than 6, but this wasn't a problem. Mon sent me a text with the door code on it so that we could get in and our... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights in two separate rooms, both of which were large and comfortable. The building is not without its faults it is a grade II listed building and therefore certain compromises are to be expected but nothing that would spoil a visit. The staff were fantastic and despite what other reviews may say, they... More

My wife and I along with our daughter were attending a family wedding being held in Lewes on Friday 22 May 2015 and having checked out the Hotels in Trip Advisor, decided to book Kempfield House. Our decision was based on the good reports from other guests. We had asked if possible to get adjoining rooms. On our arrival at... More
