In, the bathroom, the lip of the shelf directly below the mirror makes it very... More

A very warm but not imposing welcome from Patrick and his team. Very clean and carpeted throughout The Kelvin is a definite return for me. The location is superb and the view down the street to the centre of The Brighton Wheel is stunning! Very handy for the locale and central Brighton is a 10 minute walk. The place is... More

I had family staying with me at my house in Brighton and wanted to give them space to settle in for a few days and so I booked The Kelvin as I wanted to find a small B&B near to my home at a reasonable price. I asked a few friends if they could recommend anywhere to me and one... More

What more could you want? The rooms are absolutely spotless, and beds very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and cooked fresh. All staff are very friendly Overall my stay... More

The room was basic but clean and the bathroom was well proportioned. The view from the hotel was of the wheel on the beach and it was within a short walk of ALL the... More

We booked rather last minute for a weekend break in Brighton, and after not being able to find anything on AirB&B we opted to find a guest house. The photos looked good, and so we went for The Kelvin. We called ahead and told Pat our arrival time, and on arrival had to call him again due to him not... More
