Great location just up from the beach and great bars and restaurants. Our room was bright and clean with a lovely comfortable bed. Great breakfast with a fab full English. Julie and Melina are great hosts and made us both feel really welcome. I thoroughly recommend Cowards.

We had a fabulous time staying at Coward's Guest House. It is in a great location and the owners, Julie and Melina, are brilliant hosts who made us feel very welcome. We really appreciated the time they took to ensure we were entertained with recommendations of what to do and where to eat. We would strongly recommend this guest house...... More

Stayed here in September with another couple. Julia and Melina are great hosts make you feel really welcome. Pleasant room, great breakfast and a good location. Very easy to find and parking permits are a god send. Really enjoyed our stay here. Thanks girls.

The dread of small guesthouses is sometimes that one can feel like one's an intruder or under suspicion of being a potential 'dawn dasher'. For this reason, a friendly, informal welcome from the hosts can really make a difference. Breakfast was good (Coco Pops are a nice touch... More

I stayed here while a delegate at the Labour Party conference of 2015. I was so lucky to be able to stay somewhere close enough to the conference centre that wasn't going to cost me an arm and a leg. Julie and Melina were the perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and I felt I was at home. Breakfast... More

Lovely couple running this accommodation. Incredibly friendly and hospitable. Provided me with maps and information on all things local. Great location - near the beach, shops and cafes. A short walk to the Lanes.

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
