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

My partner and I booked this hotel for our 3 day 2 night trip to Brighton. We booked a superior double room (I think it was called the Hanover room) and it was unbeatable. The room was spacious, had a huge and comfy bed, a couch, complimentary wine and our room had a little balcony that you could go out... More

A great little guest house, tired in some places but due to the turnaround of guests it's to be expected, lots of stairs do not for the weary or faint hearted, breakfast was excellent too. Staff were helpful and very polite. As Brighton is a busy/popular little town noise is to be expected too, however not a major problem.

We stayed here as a family – my Portuguese girlfriend and I and our and 18-month-old son – on something of a budget (with our two nights in Brighton preceding a dash around the country to see friends and relatives) and couldn't have been happier. We had a great room – spacious, clean, accommodating – on the first floor with... More

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
