They certainly make this little B&B a welcoming place to stay, they are helpful, imformative & as a group of 6 we were all happy & would have no hesitation in staying here... More

This is a guest house - so you should expect guest house level facilities, not 5* hotel ones! As many others have said the owners are friendly, funny and helpful. The guest house itself would benefit from a bit of paint etc. My single room was small, which you would expect but the ensuite was basically a cupboard! One night... More

Me and a friend stayed at Colson house in june for a week. On arrival at reception, we were made to feel at ease, and welcome. we were given a set of keys each, and politely asked to try not to disturb other guests if coming back late. Our room was adequate for our needs, and clean and tidy. Towels... More

Good location, good room, good welcome and a good breakfast. What more do you need? Lovely house, I think the owner is about to paint the outside of it. The beach is at end of the road and there are plenty of good restaurants close by. All you need is in walking distance. Good location.

This B&B has loads of character - wonderful bow fronted Regency town house in Kemptown with the sea at the bottom of the road. Within walking distance of the train station and everything else Brighton has to offer. Very friendly welcome from the owner, spacious well furnished room, very clean and great breakfast. Highly recommend.

I enjoyed a two night stay and had the hotel to myself! Check in on Sunday was fine and Eamon was very helpful. The breakfast was nicely cooked and well presented. The hotel is centrally located and close to all main amenities. The room (Betty Davis) was a good size and the en suite adequate. I did benefit from being... More

I've stayed at this hotel twice and have loved both of my visits. Check in, breakfast and check out were perfect from a service prospective. I've always found the staff and owners helpful and reliable. Quite surprised to see the negative reviews. This isn't a brand new hotel, however it's in a fantastic location and the themed rooms have both... More

We booked this last minute in order to see a show. We put on the booking form, which did not state a latest check-in time, that we would arrive at 8pm. However, after being held up, my partner phoned this guest house to inform him and the guy's attitude was appalling. Completely, unsympathetic and cold, he refused to let us... More

On arrival me and my partner were met by Eamon, who could not have been more helpful. After a mix up with our bookings (A problem with Late rooms not the guest house itself) Eamon thankfully had a room we could stay in - the Audrey Hepburn room which was very pleasant. The linen was clean and of good quality,... More

We have just spent three very comfortable nights at the Colson House B&B. We were welcomed on arrival by Eamon who was our host for the weekend. Eamon was very helpful with regards parking (this is often a nightmare in Brighton!) and explained everything to us well. Our room was the 'Judy Garland' room (all the rooms are themed by... More
