I am sure all I am doing is confirming what the majority of other reviewers have already said but this accommodation comes highly recommended. The hosts were fantastic. The room was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. The bed was very welcoming and comfortable. I particularly looked forward to my breakfasts which were cooked to perfection. 500 plus reviewers cannot be... More

This was a real find and so much nicer than the alternative I was contemplating (big posh hotel). Derek and Gary were incredibly friendly and welcoming, open and informal, and pitched just right. The Victorian house is very clean, well decorated, comfortable and homely, with stripped floors and walls, artistic photos of Brighton, classy rooms and great little touches. The... More

What a friendly host, then we met Gary...such warmth from the hosts. We stayed in room 9 a large room overlooking the main road on the top floor, on entering... More

Have just spent two nights at Cavalaire Hotel and it was perfect! Lovely hotel, spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated throughout! The hosts Garry and Derek are great.. very friendly and helpful and told us best places to eat and drink in Brighton and sorted out parking which was close and very reasonable. Amazing breakfasts and choice of everything you could... More

A really warm and friendly welcome set the tone for what was a really special few days in Brighton. Derek and Garry are fabulous hosts and looked after me really well, I was on my own but didn't feel that way as I now have two new friends. The room was lovely and clean and everything worked... not something I've... More

Stayed two nights with my wife and we absolutely loved it. Great people and a nice room. And the location is excellent, walking distance to everything interesting yet tranquile and calm at night. Couldn't have been better.

We arrived a little late and were rudely greeted by a jumped up chef who acted as though he was ten men. That was the start. We were also told that we were being noisy when we returned from a night out. My girlfriend and I didn't make a beep! And if the walls weren't made of cardboard then perhaps... More
