A first class stay in this room Hotel in the heart of Brighton. Just two min walk to the sea front and only 7 mins walk to the famous Lanes of Brighton. The staff were very friendly and professional. Nothing was a problem. Would definitely stay here again

We stayed here as a couple and were on the second floor. The B&B was very warm all the time and we couldn't see any air conditioning so we opened the window quite a lot, but it was very noisy at night! We didn't sleep well the first night but it got a bit better the last two nights. I'd... More

This is a great Guest House, in the center of Brighton. Great location for access to the beach/pier, nightlife and the shops. The center of town and the Lanes are just a few minutes walk away. Free Wifi was a pleasant surprise, as was the fridge in the room with complementary bottled water and drinks. Room was clean and comfortable,... More

The hotel is in the perfect location, seconds until you are on the seafront & more importantly a few minutes walk from the bars & restaurants. The parking permits you get given from the hotel (upon request) are valid for 24 hours and cost £10, we were fortunate to get a space directly opposite the hotel & remained parked there... More

Breakfast is great with a good choice. This is our second visit here and we definately hope to return. Excellent Italian Restaurant across the road where on production of... More

I am about to do something my mother cautioned me against many, many times: If you can't say anything nice, don't say it. Sorry Mom, not this time. My wife and I were in need of accommodation to attend our eldest daughter's convocation from her Master's in Science from the University of Sussex. We chose Kempfield House because of the... More

Delightful owner and staff. Clean, and comfortable. Excellent breakfast - they do not serve evening meals, but with the choice of restaurants locally, they do not need to. Fully recommend for a business trip - but the sea is only 200 yards away.

I can't think of any way to fault our stay at Kempfield House! I arrived after the reception had shut on the Friday night but received easy instructions on entering the property and finding my room, and my requested parking permit (£10 for 24hrs) was waiting for me on the bed. Our room (Carlton, top floor) was small but perfectly... More
