Booked at the last minute for a business trip and glad I did, centrally located down a side street and the rooms are above a cracking local. Compact rooms but nicely decorated with thoughtful touches, parking could be a problem in high season but a welcome change from the soulless chains or dilapidated independents that Brighon seems to specialise in.

Brilliant accommodation, very clean and comfy. Staff, especially John, so helpful and welcoming-as were the locals who made us feel so at home and provided lots of helpful information and advice on where to visit and eat. Would recommend this establishment to any visitors to Brighton-and are definitely going back-miss it already.

What a find, great value, quiet, toasty warm and such a good night's sleep in a great bed. If you don't mind a stroll to Brighton it's great, buses leave from really close by too. Owner fantastic, all staff super helpful. Steep stairs to access rooms, fine for us but bear it in mind for access.

On a side street in the Brunswick area of Hove , close to good restruants , 15 / 20 minute walk to Brighton city centre . You may need ear plugs if you are a light sleeper some noise due to the nightlife in the area but not bad really considering it was a Saturday night . Bow Street Pub... More

We booked here for an overnight stay whilst seeing a gig at the Brighton Centre and to do a bit of Christmas shopping. The pub is quaint and small, traditional and very friendly. The staff were helpful and couldn't do enough for you. Our room was on the first floor and very compact but had everything we needed for an... More

I booked this because my boyfriend is a retired police officer and the name made it appropriate. I think it is where a police station used to be many years ago. The owner had worked there for years before purchasing it from the previous owner and has made many improvements. The place is quirky and friendly. The decor of the... More

My boyfriend and I came to Brighton for his 21st birthday and had to book two rooms as I booked late and couldn't find anywhere to stay. I was a little skeptical as it is a pub but you wouldn't have even noticed if you had just gone straight up to the room. As soon as we entered he pub... More

We stayed for two nights and loved the friendliness of the staff. The room was very nice and the continental breakfast in the room was a great way to start the day. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby. Would definitely recommend it :)

We just stayed one night, but wished we had booked for longer. The room (we had #2) was very small, but it has everything you'll need and it's spotless clean. The three rooms have a separate entrance, so you don't have to go through the bar if you don't want to. However, I recommend you do! Sue the owner and... More
