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

Stayed in a double room with ensuite which was very nice, the two owners Julie and Melina are really friendly and a good laugh, it is the only place we have stayed where you can say the breakfast is as good as at home. The guest house is situated close to the pier and the shopping centre. There is plenty... More

I had a wonderful stay at Coward's and found the owners to be welcoming and very accommodating. The location was perfect, situated just minutes from the beach and close to the pier. My room was very clean, recently refurbished and had an ensuite, and breakfast was delicious and made to order. I definitely recommend, as I had a lovely stay!

Situated in very close proximity to the seafront and a 10 minute walk to the centre of town. It also has an array of shops, bars and restaurants on it's doorstep so a very good location. The b&b itself was charming, clean and comfortable with two very welcoming and friendly owners who cook up a mean breakfast! They also cater... More

Stayed in the double ensuite room. The room was very clean and nicely decorated, with a newly refriblished bathroom.There was a really nice atmosphere and the owners were very accommodating to different dietary needs with a cooked breakfast each morning and continental option. The location was brilliant, would definitely recommend.

Cowards is a lovely traditional English B & B run by two very hospitable, friendly, accommodating ladies, Melina and Julie. It's a lovely, comfortable house, and it's very close to all amenities. The sea is just a block away, you can see it from the front door of the guesthouse, and the famous Brighton Pier is just 10-15 minutes stroll... More
