This place was amazing, the accommodation was excellent, the bed was extremely confutable. Lots of local shops and lots to do. 5 minute walk down to the pier. The owners made us feel very welcomed. Breakfast was excellent and very filling. We will definately be going back again soon. Loved it!

What more can I say ? Everything about the hotel was indeed superb. Spotlessly clean room. Great location. The hosts Garry and Derek are really friendly funny guys. This was our first (but not last) visit to Brighton and we were pointed in the right direction. Cannot wait to re-visit and Garry cooks one mean breakfast !!!! Loved it x

Me and my partner had never been to Brighton so booked this for 2 nights as it looked lovely. The owners are lovely and the service was amazing. Our room was beautiful! Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! Will definitely book again!

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Cavalaire. Derek and Garry were very hospitable and and warm. We enjoyed the terrific breakfasts and the beautiful room. It was the perfect base for our weekend in Brighton. Derek also gave us some very good restaurant recommendations. We had a wonderful weekend.

From the first phone call to departure we found Derek and Garry the most considerate of people. The accommodation was of a very high standard and obviously thought through in great detail. The décor was warm yet fresh, with personality - nothing corporate here! Generous breakfast and an abundant supply of tea, coffee and (fresh!) milk in the room. Breakfast... More

This establishment offered a high standard of service. The bedrooms were meticulously prepared. The extra quaintness of having kilner jars for milk added a more personal touch to the service. Stayed here with friends from Los Angeles, USA.

We were very fortunate to find The Cavalaire as our original accommodation was so poor we couldn't stay there. Derek and Garry were very welcoming and provided us with 5* treatment. If it wasn't for them our holiday would of been ruined. The room we had was clean and equipped with everything you need when youre away from home. Well... More

This hotel is wonderful, it's in a great location for exploring all of Brighton on foot. The welcome on arrival is lovely, the hotel is furnished beautifully and the room was spotlessly clean with lovely fluffy towels, nice toiletries, and clean crisp sheets on a very comfy bed. The breakfasts are amazing, we managed to try the full English, pancakes,... More
