two of us stayed last week and was pleasantly surprised that it was very clean, nicely decorated, and quite close to the shops, beach etc. the only downside was that our room, the only twin bedded was up 53 stairs! as we walked for miles we nearly collapsed when we got up to our room(must get fit!) our room was...

My husband and I travelled to Brighton on a short break of 3 nights. We were welcomed by Mark (and Fred the little dog) who not only helped with the luggage but provided refreshing cups of tea after our long motorbike ride down from the Midlands. He also explained and circled on a town map some of the best places... More

Good B&B with excellent breakfasts and very central. Everything in easy walking distance. Rooms at the front can be noisy as the road is popular late in the evenings. Fred the Dog is the real star of the show and we were all besotted with him. B&B has private parking which is a real bonus for motorcycles as this can... More

Great location, friendly and good breakfast. Nice room at top of building with sea view. Could be a bit noisy at night. Just depends what you are used to. 5 mins from sea front. Helpful hosts in providing maps and guidance where to go.

Second visit to this Hotel. Very welcoming on arrival with a much needed cup of tea. Very clean and well furnished. Accommodated special breakfast needs. Only brief visit but would use again. Limited on site parking

A friend and I wanted a cheap and cheerful hotel to stay in Brighton on a Saturday night ahead of mountain biking the South Downs Way on the Sunday. I booked the hotel on Friday through visitbrighton.com and Mark was very accommodating, helping us store our bikes and giving us tips on places to have a pre-ride beer and food.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this centrally located BnB. Very clean and well maintained. Close to all services, beach and pier. Mark was very helpful with all our enquiries for visiting Brighton. We also were very grateful for being able to park our car. Would highly recommend.

Beautiful presented rooms and the hosts are very friendly and knowledgeable of the area and what activities were going on. Close proximity to beach and the attractions which means if you drove you could leave your car for the duration of your stay. Would definitely stay there again if I'm in Brighton again.
