I stayed at the Bow Street Runner for two nights with my 9-year-old daughter as we traveled through the UK. The place offered us exactly what we needed, and it was clean and welcoming. It's close enough to be convenient to the sites and to shopping, but it's back enough from the beach and major attractions to be safe and... More

Thank you all at the Bow Street Runner for making my stay with my sister so special. Your warmth and kindness along with everything else that your B&B and Pub has to offer are without exception wonderful. Thanks again. Maggie.

Had a wonderful long weekend with my sister at the Bow Street Runner. Never stayed here before but will definitely come back in the future. The room was spotlessly clean, facilities impeccable and unexpected little extras, toiletries, fresh fruit etc. The pub is in a quiet area but convenient for sight seeing. It's also a great pub to spend the... More

Beautiful stay, was everything we wanted and more. I don't know what brand of beds they use but they were perfect for my back. Lovely customer service and very helpful members of staff. My husband wants to come back asap! And so do I ;)

The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, the room are very clean and organised. The sunshine was so nice so we stay on the Brighton beach for another day, without going to the seven sisters. Will come back!

Lovely little pub tucked away, great location and such a friendly welcome. The owners were friendly and lovely people. The breakfast was really cute, crossiants and cereal. We even had a few drinks in the pub,nice staff and customers. My only crtiticsim was that I didn't book more than one night!

Booked this hotel for the London 2 Brighton with understanding this had parking available. When we arrived, there were no spaces at all and were told we had to park on the street, where there was no where to park at all. I spoke with "Kevin" who assured me that if we did not want to stay then we would... More

We were given a very warm welcome by the landlady who made us feel completely at home. The room was compact but very comfortable. Breakfast was set up in the room with a little fridge stocked with milk and juice. Perfect location. Will be back and will recommend.
