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

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
