My mother and I stayed here for 3 nights and although the location was very central, there was little else we enjoyed about the guest house. The property itself has no attendants which firstly feels quite unsafe, but secondly means that a charge of £20 applies if you forget your key. The room we stayed in (Room 1) was far... More

Stayed here whilst visiting our son, we had room 4 which is a bit of a climb! Nice room with double and single bed, it's not palatial but very comfortable, everything you needed was there. We had a lovely breakfast in the sister hotel. The location was perfect, between the sea and the high street, five minute walk to either.... More

Booked this guest house because all other accomodation full for the Brighton marathon. Arrived on the Friday with wife and daughter to encourage son who was running; first had to call to say we were coming (though the booking said an e-mail would be sent for us to advise when we would be arriving, and this info had already been...

Stayed here for a Saturday night in March in room 7. This is a basement room with 3 single beds that cost us less than £100 (which is a bargain in Brighton on a busy weekend). As this property doesn't always have a manned reception you will be sent a text message asking approximately what time you will be arriving.... More

Having paid £60 for the room I was a bit shocked at the appearance which was quite decayed, having stayed at The Albion near to the pier a couple of months ago for the same price in a four poster.!!! But this guest house was pet friendly and we were able to bring our cocker spaniel to stay in our... More

Stayed for a week on business. Positives were a great location (v good proximity to town, sea front, conference centre etc.), very reasonable price and a tasty breakfast. On the downside the room was quite cold, shower wasn't great and the wifi was poor. Certainly wasn't a bad stay but could have been more comfortable.

Cleanliness obviously not a priority at this hotel.The staff were rude when I complained about the mouldy shower curtain, dirty kettle,lots of food crumbs left in the clothes drawer and the dirty towels left in the shower all day. I was abused verbally and told the kettle was only dirty on the outside not the inside,I hope they have lifted... More

Me and my boyfriend arrived in Brighton, having booked with another hotel that was not open and there was no sight of anyone at the booking time so we needed to arrange another place to stay for the night. We come across Russell guest house down the road and we had a friendly welcoming, considering we needed a room on... More

Me and 2 of my mates recently returned from the Russell Guest House and had such a lovely time I am already looking into returning in 3 weeks time! We stayed in the family room (number 4) which way plenty big enough for the 3 of us, with a nice hot shower, comfy beds, a television and a lovely view... More

My partner and i had a night away from the kids, we only live 15 mins away but a night off from kids was well needed. The room and bathroom was newly decorated and had a good supply of tea and coffee with yummy chocolate biscuits on the tea tray. The bed was very comfy with really soft sheets and... More
