Me and my girlfriend stayed here for two nights on the hottest days of the year so far! But any weather would of made for a lovely stay at the alvia. Just a few minutes walk to the pier and then a few more to the shops and royal pavilion - a great location as it wasn't too far and... More

Because of our love of Brighton we go whenever we can. This trip was booked through a Wowcher and we added an extra night ourselves. The Alvia is very welcoming, Mark is lovely, very clean and attractive. Our room was lovely and the bed was the most comfortable that I have experienced anywhere. We would love to return.

We enjoyed our brief stay at the Alvia hotel. The rooms were tastefully decorated clean and modern. The breakfasts were excellent and the proprietors extremely helpful. The only downside was our particular room was very small. Nevertheless, I would certainly recommend it. The location was a few minutes walk from the pier in an elevated position. .

Enjoyable stay, clean rooms and cosy, nice breakfast with a fair amount of choice, the cutest resident dog who doesn't bark, free wifi and very personable hospitality. All in all a very positive stay!

Hi Thanks for your kind remarks; it was good to meet you and I hope we see you again soon. At the moment, though, the resident dog (Fred) doesn't know about the no barking rule! Best wishes Mark, Pierre & Fred More

My husband and I spent a wonderful two days staying at the Alvia. The rooms were fresh and clean and bed and pillows comfortable. The tea and coffee making facilities were an added bonus. Breakfast the next morning was perfect and Mark was a great host and went out of his way to give us our dietry request. He was... More

We had a really lovlie stay at the Alvia, Mark was very welcoming and the atmosphere was warm and cosy. The whole hotel was spotlessly clean and even with two dogs, I never saw a single stray hair. Some people might not like having the dogs around but for us, they added to the charm and character of the Hotel... More

Hi Tim Thanks for your kind remarks, and I'm pleased you had such an enjoyable stay. Although the dogs live here we try and make sure that guests are comfortable with having them round, and keep them out of the way if necessary. It's really kind of you to say that we're a credit to Brighton and I hope we... More
