Having experience of a number of B&B's we can honestly say that this is by far the "Rolls Royce" of B&B's. Ron and Lesley make this 5 star accommodation a very welcoming home from home. All the rooms are large, well equipped and spotlessly clean with the comfiest of beds made up with gorgeous bedlinen.
The breakfasts are a treat, with a varied menu, all of which we have tried, and can definitely recommend.
Ron and Lesley are wonderful hosts and really go the extra mile to make their guests comfortable.
Downs View is a little gem we will visit time after time.

We were pleased with the large well equipped rooms. Everything was well decorated, clean and to a good standard. Excellent breakfasts and I would recommend the packed lunches too! Great location for exploring the South Downs.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2010

Looking very ordinary from the well-travelled street, the Downs View was unexpectedly roomy, exceptionally well-maintained, and had several unique aspects that made it a treat. The apparently British penchant for naming the bedrooms of a B and B after the predominant color of the decor reigned supreme here, and we found a Lot of Lavender in the room of that name -- right down to the rather garish rim around the bathroom mirror that lit up when one's hand passed in front of it. Interesting....but it was, indeed, the first time I could see to put on my make-up at night on the entire trip! But that's a quibble -- the room and the bathroom were both extremely comfortable, well-appointed, and obviously designed with care by the owners themselves. And they, themselves, were the hit of the place -- he, especially, gave new meaning to the words "effusive" and "gregarious, regaling us with tales not only of the renovations he'd done totally himself (and most skillfully, evidently), but of his trip that Sunday to a Brighton motorcycle rally. He was a true original. His wife was clearly the behind-the-scenes partner, and prepared a lovely breakfast (even accommodating our strange combinations of food choices), and lunch packed for the road. We totally admired the industry and creativity shown by these folks and would highly recommend their efforts.

We had to go to brighton for funeral and searched the internet for accomadation but the hotels were very expensive plus the fact no parking or extortionate charges for the parking.
Downs view is a little way out of Brighton but this is more than compensated for by the excellant accomadation and hospitality of Lesley and a Husband. They have thought of everything even down to scissors on the table to open the sauses.The breakfast is very good and the rooms are lovely. Would stay there again and recommend this guest house to anyone.
