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

Friendly reception, tasty breakfast and room neat and clean (though rather small). Bathroom a bit "rough around the edges" and a bit of noise outside at night. Can't blame the hotel for the latter and ear plugs are supplied! A parking permit for nearby streets is supplied by the hotel for £10 (24 hrs) and the location is a stone's... More

We enjoyed our stay here. The staff were more than accommodating towards us with our 16month old. Room was nice size, bed super comfortable and very well presented. Bathroom was ok but floor became very slippery. Breakfast was great, hot, prompt and lots of choice. We had a little noise but was to be expected considering the location and never... More

We stayed for two nights midweek in January 2015, so didnt experience the noise problems some reviewers report. This B&B is so clean and well-run, beautiful spacious room and delicious freshly cooked breakfast. The bed was very large and comfortable, soft towels, large ensuite and lovely bay sash window with a sideways view of the sea and pier. Lovely Italian... More

We came to Brighton for NewYear, excellent B&B, fantastic spot close to the seafront. We stayed in the Hanover room with a king size bed which was very comfortable and clean, a welcome bottle of wine/water and coke in fridge. Breakfast was fantastic plenty of choice. There was a bit of noise but expected as it was New Years Eve.... More

Excellent location, single room at the top of the house. Very clean and lots of hot water. Wonderful breakfast. I stayed for 3 nights and I can't fault anything. I would definitely book here again. A gem!!!
