Mark provided a fantastic service and was friendly and helpful before I'd even checked in. Parking was organised for my trip down and whilst I couldn't check in when I arrived (at 9am, I had driven down to attend a conference) I was told which room would be mine and my bags were ready waiting for me in my room...

Had a wonderful break in Brighton with my missus so she could relive her university days. The hotel was in an excellent location just a short walk for everything. The manager was friendly and efficient. Our room was spotlessly clean and the bed was actually more comfortable than the one we have at home! The breakfast was delicious and the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here on July 12th for 1 night. Great location, very clean and comfortable, breakfast was lovely and David was a fantastic host. Lots to do in Brighton and an ideal escape from work and children! Will definitely book again :)

This is a nice quiet affordable B&B close to the pier in Brighton. The owner is friendly and helpful. I had the small double room which is...yes...small, so exactly as advertised. The bed is huge and really comfortable. Negative... Can't comfortably watch telly from bed. The angle at which the telly is mounted against the wall is wrong so when... More

Just had the weekend at the Alvia what a lovely place. Very clean and the facillities are well thought out. Breakfast was yummy and we looked forward to Freddys visit in the morning, he's definately an asset :). Perfect location within walking distance of everything. Would definately return next visit to Brighton.

Lovely boutique hotel, very central and away from the hustle and bustle of busy Brighton. Mark made me feel very welcome, as did Freddy, the dog. The rooms are small, but have private en-suite shower room, they're clean and tidy - and quiet. I would stay here again, next time I'm in Brighton.

We thoroughly enjoyed 2 nights (wish it could have been more) at this delightful private hotel, courtesy of Mark and Pierre. They are to be congratulated on an interesting decor, neither too highbrow or too lowbrow, but just right for our comfort and enjoyment. It was a bargain experience which we may not have afforded had it not been for... More
