I stayed in Boydens Guesthouse while I was studying at English courses in August 2014. First of all, I'd like to say "thank you" to Helen and William who run this marvellous guesthouse, for their attention to all visitors and warm and hospitable atmosphere which made my 2-week holiday in Brighton extremely pleasant and memorable.

Good central location in a quite avenue around 1 mile from Brighton Station - 20 minutes walk or regular buses to St James St or Edward St. Via Old Steine,... More

Boydens is set back from the busy streets of Brighton, making it quiet and restful. However it is only a short walk to eateries and the beachfront. Parking is not much of a problem, with Helen able to on sell parking permits for the day. The room we stayed in was clean and comfortable with a large bed. Breakfast was... More

Spotlessly clean, a good breakfast offering and surprisingly quiet even for Pride weekend. Don't try and book for Pride next year though as we all reserved our rooms as we checked out for next year. But... More
