Lovely atmosphere in a refurbished Victorian house. Clean and comfortable, great location near the seaside and the pier. Adequate breakfast. The owners are friendly and professional. Reasonable value for money. My fiance and I had a lovely time and will definitely consider going back the next time we visit Brighton.

My wife and I stayed here for one night and it was great. Really handy location for town and the seafront. Room was clean and tidy (I recall the shower was good - achieved desired temperature easily and powerful). Proprietors were friendly and the breakfast we had was perfect - a light fry up on a nice hot plate with... More

Hotel was lovely, Mark was very helpful telling us all about best restaurants in the area and places to visit/shop. Breakfast was very nice, bedrooms very clean and service great. Reserved parking was well worth the money.

From the moment we arrived, Mark made us very welcome with very useful information on what to see, where to go, good places to eat, etc. in Brighton. Excellent breakfasts, great accommodation and facilities. So glad we were able to reserve a parking place and also to meet Fred. Alvia is the place to stay in Brighton. Thank you -... More

Lovely hosts & great service. Wonderful atmosphere. The rooms were very nice (and clean) especially considering the price. Great breakfast - the coffee was amazing! There is no lift, which might be a problem for some, but not us. Would definitely come here again!

The hotel is really nice, the rooms are exactly as pictured and nice and clean and cleaned everyday. The shower is nice and warm, which is not always the case with hotels. The staff are nice and friendly and breakfast is nice. The location is good near to the beach and all the bars. I would definitely stay here again

Booked hotel day before for two days shopping with my daughter. From start to finish Mark couldn't be more helpful. Service excellent, good local recommendations. On site secure parking absolutely brilliant couldn't have felt more welcome. Breakfast superb and Fred an added bonus. Will definitely stay again on our return. Excellent weekend. Perfect central location for all pursuits.

A late booking by phone for a long weekend was handled rapidly, clearly and very kindly with confirmation being sent, as promised, within half an hour. We also arrived late but were warmly received by Mark. The lovely Alviar is as you see it on the web site: the rooms are tastefully decorated and beautifully clean. What you don't see... More

A welcoming, comfortable and convenient hotel, successfully combining intimate and informality while also being very close to the amenities and attractions. The personal service was particularly good without going over the top. I will definitely recommend you to others for a short break by the sea.
