Stayed at Cowards over the August bank holiday Mod weekender. The hosts Julie and Melina were wonderful, right from the first warm welcome. I was fortunate enough to find on street parking just outside the hotel, and parking permits were only £10 per day. Good value for Brighton. The room was small but never felt cramped, and was tastefully decorated... More

Myself and my fiancé stayed here for two nights over the Bank Holiday Weekend. Melina and Julie who run the guest house and very friendly, welcoming and excellent hosts all round. Our bedroom on the top floor was big, in superb condition with a nice firm mattress and very smart en-suite bathroom. Free Wi-Fi and Freeview a nice bonus. The... More

During our travel in South-England, we visited Brighton for two days and stayed at Coward's Guesthouse. Everything was great including room (sufficient size, good bed, bathroom), location (near to the beach), breakfast (excellent) and especially helpfulness of Melina und Julie. We would definitely choose this B&B again.

Stayed Aug 21st for two days, greeted by Melina on arrival, who insisted on taking our case to our room, room very clean with crisp linen and towels, breakfast excellent, room was a little noisy at night due to warm evenings and having window open, but nothing too bad, overall Melina and Julie were superb hosts and would highly recommend.

The owners were welcoming and very friendly when my partner spoke with them on the phone and when we arrived. Very nice breakfast. Good location, close to the main scene in Brighton but you can still get a nice sleep away from the busy late night noise. Highly recommended. Two minutes walk to the sea front making it good value... More

Stayed at Cowards for the first time and for four days recently and enjoyed it very much. Not only is it close to the sea-front but is within easy reach of a variety of bars and restaurants etc. The owners, Julie and Melina, were extremely nice and helpful. The room was spotless and spacious and although it faced the road... More
