Myself and my girlfriend stayed here twice in 2013. The rates were really reasonable so we weren't expecting much but we were blown away. It is a great place - the rooms are cute, thoughtfully furnished, spotlessly clean and with everything you need. The guy who runs it is really nice, attentive, and makes a great breakfast. It's in a... More

I stayed in the Judy Garland room which was lovely. There was a little seating area and a desk which was very handy. It was all very clean and they changed the bed linen whilst I was there, for 5 nights. There were some nice touches, such as some quotes from Judy in the bathroom which made me smile. The... More

We had a nice stay here, the room was nice and the owner friendly. My only criticism is that for the size of the ensuite, facilities available and quality of the breakfast it was quite overpriced. The bathroom was basically the size of a wardrobe and there was no choice for breakfast.

My Partner and I came across this place and from the moment we booked we never looked back. There are pictures of every room (which all of them are high standard) so you know your guaranteed a decent room no matter what. They were always available by email to help us with anything we enquired about big or small, and... More

I spend two nights in Colson House and was very satisfied. The hotel is in a great location, close to the main shopping area, pavilion and the pier. The room was spacious and clean. The bathroom wasn't great, as the door didn't close properly and the waterpressure was very low, which meant the toilet didn't flush properly and the shower... More

This was our first time in Brighton and we loved it. We found Colson house a very welcoming place to stay with clean, tidy rooms. The location is superb and remarkably quiet for being so close to the beach. All in all, we had a very pleasant experience here for our four night stay. Compared to other guest houses Colson... More

Literally got out there as soon as possible, and moved into a new b and b within 12 hours, horrific place. The rooms are genuinely filthy, and the staff were just beyond rude, disrespectful and I don't think this place deserves any stars let alone 4, this was one trip advisor where the reviews have failed me, and wasted my...

Very pretty, modern and clean rooms. Good breakfast, nice hosts. Central but quite position. Close to shops and bus routes. (Don't remember about the internet connection to be honest:) I would reccomend this place and I think I would choose it again for my stayed in Brighton.

The rudest managers I have EVER spoken too...the room was worse than a hostel....I'd rather never visit Brighton than have to stay there again. Totally ruined my weekend to the point I was calling up other hotels to see if I could get out of there...I have never left a review on here before, so please take this seriously!
