Problem with leaky tub faucet and cracked tub skirting. Thankfully the door automatically shut so the leaking did not keep... More

This was a solo trip and so I had a single room which was tiny. However, it had everything necessary and more. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, bottle of spring water, chocolates laid neatly on the towels, biscuits, TV, ironing board and .... a small packet of earplugs! Breakfast was great with loads of choice. Parking in Brighton is a nightmare,... More

Honey & homemade preserves was a nice extra as was cafetière coffee. Would return, as was easy to find & good location to explore. Cheerful staff at... More

Nice guest house in Kemp town very near sea life centre in Brighton, easy walk to centre of town. Nice comfy rooms. Very clean. Nice added extras (drinks, wine in room) Excellent big breakfast with self serve of drinks and cereals. Attentive staff. I wanted a quieter hotel... And when I visited this is what I got. Happy!

We loved the location of this B & B in central Brighton, especially as we are using public transport to see England. Great extra touches - small bottle of red wine, chocolates & free bottled water as well as a fridge in our room. We have a room fronting the road, yes there was some road noise (they provide free...
