What a wonderful stay. A 200 year old guest house with character. Very clean and tidy. Full English breakfast and fresh coffee set me up for the day. The seafront is less than 2 minutes walk away and the pier not more than 5. I would recommend Coward's to people travelling solo or as a family. I will return when... More

Under new ownership, we wondered what we might find when we stayed last week. We were not disappointed. Our new hosts were welcoming, friendly and fun, the room as charming as ever, the breakfast superlative and... More

Had a couple of nights at Coward's over Easter and we found the room to be clean and comfortable with everything we needed. The hosts were very welcoming and the breakfast was spot on, with a good veggie alternative. Close to the sea, the Brighton wheel and Palace pier. The B+B is located in the heart of Kemp Town, with... More

I headed to Brighton hoping for a relaxed and refreshing stay and this is exactly what I had. The room was warm, cosy, quiet and clean. It looked out on to the back gardens and the atmosphere was made by the natural soundtrack of the seagulls. The B&B is in a really good location, with the sea almost on the... More

On arrival were greeted by 2 friendly faces Melina And Julie, After check-in they took us to our... More
