Welcomed back again warmly by Derek and Gary just as they were having their garden finished. We came back to the coast for our wedding anniversary and stayed in the four poster room I think on the second floor overlooking the front. Spacious, plush, ample room for clothes, fridge in the wardrobe, table and chairs, television and overly comfortable. Breakfast... More

What can I say, there are plenty of big chain hotels who could learn a lot from these guys, Derek and Garry were more than accommodating and we could not have asked for anything more. Drinks on arrival, lovely! We stayed early December along with friends of ours, Derek was brilliant, suggesting places to go (and not to!) and where... More

We were recommended the Cavalier Guest House by a friend and we were not disappointed. You are ensured a very warm welcome from Derek and Gary who run this gem of a B&B. It was more like staying at a friends house. They are funny and attentive and a fountain of local knowledge and all the recommended restaurants we went... More

We had a relaxing break at the Cavalaire. Derek gave us a wonderful warm welcome, and was a great host, really made us feel at home. The room was spotless and comfortable and breakfast was delicious. It is in a really good location with a short walk to the seafront, and just minutes to some nice local bars and restaurants.... More

When you arrive it starts with an exceptionally warm welcome. The hotel is in a wonderful location. The hosts have thought through small details. There is help with parking and great local restaurant reservations. An excellent base for exploring Brighton.

We stayed at the Cavalaire for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The rooms are well appointed, spotlessly clean, and very comfortable. The hotel is perfectly situated within walking distance of Brighton's town center and just 2 blocks from the beach. The hosts Derek and Garry were very helpful and answered all our questions regarding restaurant suggestions and... More

The hospitality at this hotel is amazing. Derek, the owner couldn't have done any more to make us feel welcome. The hotel was exceptionally clean and the room decor was superb! The breakfast was delicious and would well and truly recommend you take up the opportunity whilst you are there. We will definitely be going back again.
