My husband had arranged with Derek for a bouquet of flowers to be in our room on arrival!The accommodation is in immaculate condition and the breakfast was first class!... More

I booked the Cavalaire Hotel for my daughter and her friend in August as my daughter was on location in Brighton filming a music video. I needed somewhere more personal for them to stay rather than one of the larger chains and all my dealings with the hotel were excellent assuring me I'd made a good choice. Nothing was too... More

A great base for a wonderful weekend in sunny Brighton. Garry and Derek made us feel immediately welcome with a glass of wine on arrive. The rooms were absolutely spotless and nicely designed. Breakfast was superb in the light and airy Victorian front room. We had a great time and will definitely be going back!

We had a nice stay at the hotel cavalaire. It's not far from the sea and the city center. The hosts are very nice. We had a warm welcome. It was the first time in Brighton so, we got a small guide, we got told where the best restaurants and shopping areas are, etc. The room was very clean and... More

From the moment we walked into the Cavalaire, Derek and Garry made a fuss of us, sat us down with a cup of tea. Derek spent over 30 minutes sorting out car parking for us. The breakfasts were to die for, and the bedroom ultra clean. Thank You Derek and Garry for a great stay in Brighton, I hope to... More

Wonderful decor, comfortable beds, fresh milk in the fridge, lovely toiletries, delicious breakfast and attentive hosts. I mentioned I really fancied a piña colada before the day was out and as we left for the beach, Derek ran after us and handed us two frozen cocktails from the freezer! What a kind gesture. Great location too, Kemptown offers a huge... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Cavalaire B&B for two nights. Upon arrive we were greeted by the Landlord Derek who made us most welcome and offered a drink each while we registered. He showed us our room on the top floor, room 8. Although a small room it was tastefully decorated. The bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding... More
