This gorgeous six bed guest house is just moments from the seafront and within walking distances of all that you want in Brighton. The owners, Julie and Melina are incredibly warm and friendly and make guests feel so welcome. The rooms are lovely and clean and spacious, particularly room one which has a gorgeous bay window from which you can... More

Some friends and I stayed at Coward's during a weekend trip to Brighton in early November, and were really impressed by what we found. The rooms were lovely, clean and warm, and the welcome we had from the owners was wonderful. Special mention goes to the breakfasts, which were particularly delicious! Coward's now tops the list of my absolute favourite... More

Thanks so much to the lovely ladies who now run Coward's for a great stay. I booked Room 3 which is listed as a single room (but does infact have a double bed) for the Bank Holiday weekend. They really have thought of pretty much everything to make your stay comfortable - from a hairdryer to ironing board, bottles of... More

Stayed at Coward's with my partner for 3 nights and we had a really lovely time. The new owners, Julie and Melina (hopefully spelt correctly!) were very genuine and gave us a very warm welcome. We both had a few days off work and on a whim decided to visit Brighton and contacted Coward's to see what availability they had.... More

We stayed there a couple of weekends ago and the new owners were nothing short of delightful. They were flexible with our late check in and very friendly and helpful with recommendations. The room is very spacious although the bathroom is a tad small but functional and still has everything you need. Water, tea, coffee and yummy biscuits were provided.... More

I stayed here for a weekend whilst visiting a friend in Brighton. It is an excellent place to stay-a few minutes walk from both the seafront and Kemptown and you can walk into town in 10 minutes. The new owners are very welcoming and friendly, the room extremely clean and well presented with all the facilities you need. You have... More

A great location in Kemp Town, on the edge of the LGBT district. Ideally situated for most of Brighton's main attractions. Gay friendly guest house, but all will be welcome. Gerry, the owner, is friendly and helpful. The room was clean, with TV/DVD player, fridge, iron and free WiFi. Breakfast was good - cereal/fruit/yoghurt/tea/coffee/juice as well as a fry-up.
