A lovely guesthouse very centrally located we walked everywhere. Mark our host was charming and breakfast was really good lots of choice and plenty to eat. Mark also gave excellent advice as to where to eat for dinner. A lovely stay I would recommend to anyone. Very clean and comfortable we even had a view of the sea!

It's a fantastic place with a cool owner, breakfast is excellent. It is not a very big hotel but warm and fantastic. We stayed for one nights and will go back so day in the future. There is a good view on the top, as well the bed is very superb.

A recent 3 night break at the Alvia was very pleasant indeed. A warm welcome from Mark (and Fred the dog) was very reassuring and we were shown to our room and later given information and suggestions about places to eat and see. The room was very comfortable and clean and the breakfast freshly cooked to order. A great fairly... More

We stayed for 2 nights on friday and saturday. Comfy bed, immaculately clean, lovely lighting and a brilliant breakfast. Given loads of info on arrival about things to do, advised of a restaurant which was so good my boyfriend is still raving about it. A three min walk to the sea. Really enjoyed it, loved the decor, the friendliness and... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights. We found the owners to be friendly and welcoming, and both of us felt the hotel had a warm, homely vibe. Mark was very helpful in recommending good places to eat and drink locally, as well as places of interest to visit. Our room was comfortable and nicely decorated, breakfast was... More

I had a marvelous time in this hotel, everything was perfect: so clean, very cute house, perfect location, quiet (except for the seagulls in the morning, but who would complain?), delicious breakfast, extremely nice staff, cute little dog... Will definitely book a room in this hotel again if I'm back in Brighton. Thanks for making my trip to Brighton so... More

Hi Manon Thanks for taking the time to write such a positive review; I'm really pleased that you enjoyed your stay here so much - but I'm afraid there's not much we can do about the seagulls... I hope we see you if you come to Brighton again. Best wishes, Mark, Pierre and Fred More

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.
