Stayed here for 3 nights and no regrets. Owners are friendly and very welcoming, rooms are immaculately decorated and stocked. Mini bar fridge for your own use, tea and coffee in room, lovely decor, crisp white linen and heavy curtains to keep it dark. Shower room newly fitted and all pristine, room made up every day and toiletries replenished. Excellent... More

From the moment we walked in the door (Gary being kind enough to wait around for us after our train was late) we were greeted with a glass of wine and some friendly suggestions for where to go. The room was immaculately clean albeit the shower... More

This is truly Brighton's biggest kept secret! On arrival we we're welcomed by both owners and a freezing cold bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, even though we were late... (Tea & coffee was an option) :) We then had a tour of the hotel and a detailed break down of what to see, where to eat and how to get there!... More

A wonderful stay in Brighton at a lovely hotel. The room was on the small size but packed a lot in and was very clean with a good powerful shower, as well as large TV and other great facilities. Our hosts couldn't have made us feel any more welcome with glass of wine on arrival. Derek's insider tips including places... More

Revisited The Cavalaire for a 2 night stay in Brighton. As soon as Derek opened the door we were greeted like old friends with a welcome wine and tea. Derek and Gary are fantastic, friendly and attentive hosts and make The Cavalaire one of the best guesthouses around. Our room (7) was stylish smart and uber- comfortable with a 4... More

We were not to be disappointed , from first... More

An oasis of calm and run by the most welcoming and helpful hosts, we stayed for just one night but wished we could have visited for longer. The room was lovely, bed amazingly comfortable and the property spotless. Derek and Garry could not have been more welcoming and helpful with tips on where to go and what to do etc.... More
