Brilliant place to stay and the location is perfect. The rooms are lovely and comfortable. Great breakfast and Gerry the owner is a gentleman. Would recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit Brighton.

I stayed here over the Easter weekend in order to attend a conference. I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The breakfast was very good (and accompanied with a lovely chat with the owner...fascinating and lovely man!), the room was clean, the bed very comfy. I'd challenge anyone to find a more welcoming place to stay or better... More

Having stayed in quite a few B&B's in Brighton, Cowards décor is a little tired and needs updating. There are 6 rooms, 4 or which have full en-suite. Rooms are on floors 1-3 and breakfast room lower ground so not ideal for disabled people. Clientele seems to be for the more mature person, the owner is friendly and cooks a... More

I would highly recommend Coward's, great location near the sea and lots of pubs, restaurants and shops nearby. Gerry was very friendly and welcoming and did us a great cooked breakfast (including going out of his way to get vegetarian sausages!) We are a young, straight couple and had a great, relaxing time at Coward's.

My partner and I were giving a most friendly welcome by the owner Gerry who also gave us information on the local restaurants and bars. Our bedroom was No.6 on the top floor which was spotlessly clean, although the en suite bathroom was rather small. The breakfast room needed updating but the breakfast itself was very good with cereal, full... More

We headed to the coast on Saturday heading to Coward's guesthouse. Tricky parking, but Gerry provided us with a 24hour parking permit which saved stacks on parking in town. We arrived in Brighton and Gerry made us feel very welcome, showing us to our room and essentially leaving us to it after this. Lovely four story building with well sized... More

I visited Coward's on Apr 14th - 16th 2012 for the marathon weekend. I was late in booking a room, having been let down by someone else, but this turned out to be my good fortune in finding this place. Even late booking though the prices were very reasonable, unlike some hotels i asked at where they seemed to increase... More

Stayed here some time ago - friendly owners you never saw except at breakfast - no place to sit and chat except in your room - which was in need of modernizing as somewhat dated and faded. Very clean and tidy - but no indication as to why it is called Cowards - altho someone told me the owner was... More
