Boxes ticked in terms of room/cleanliness/location/style/comfort/everything you need! Add in a huge sprinkle of friendliness, warmth, attention to detail and the utmost TLC from the lovely hosts and you have something that is very special indeed! The breakfast was just perfect too, better than most of the 5 star hotels I have stayed in!

Spent a fantastic Friday and Saturday night at the Cavalaire Hotel. The hotel is in a lovely town house, and is stylish and immaculate. We got a really warm welcome from the owners, Derek and Garry, and were made to feel right at home. The location is great. Breakfast was a treat on both mornings - a broad menu of... More

We recently stayed at the Cavalaire for a week whilst attending a son's graduation from the University of Sussex. This little gem of a hotel really surpassed all of our expectations. Owner's Derek and Garry, took such good care of us, from offering up suggestions of where to eat, to what were the "must see" places in Brighton. Other reviews... More

I found no shortage of accommodation options when looking for a place to stay in Brighton. However, Cavalaire drew my attention for the stylish rooms and the proximity to the beach. We were so happy we chose to stay here. As so many reviews have noted Derek and Garry are wonderful hosts. We felt very comfortable during our stay. The... More

Fantastic welcome from Derek and excellent breakfast from Garry. The Cavalaire is very well appointed and the hosts are friendly, informal and professional (all at the same time). We had one of the 4-poster rooms, with an excellent mattress, nice decor, mini-fridge, fan and TV. Breakfast was very hearty, well cooked and well sourced. The full veggie option was a... More

Had a lovely stay here. Great location, very friendly & helpful service, and fantastic breakfast. Room & bathroom on the small side but very well equipped with everything you'll need & tastefully decorated. Was able to leave my suitcase for a few hours after checkout. Would definitely stay again when in Brighton. Thank you! Zahraa.

We have just returned from a two night stay at the Cavalaire Hotel in Brighton for our wedding anniversary. We arrived on Friday and were met by the owners Derek and Garry. They could not have been more welcoming and offered us a drink and sat down to tell us about the local attractions. We were then shown to our... More
