This hotel is very inviting situated within easy walking distance of both the beach and centre of Brighton with many amenities just minutes away. I was greeted by a very nice young lady and shown to my room which was much bigger than most hotel rooms in Brighton. I went for a superior room as it was not much difference... More

A lovely bed and breakfast close to all the local attractions in brighton. The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was really nice and the staff very friendly and helpful. Lots of pubs and restaurants within walking distance. Would stay here again.

We stayed in March 2014. We were in a superior room. The Staff were most helpful and the premises was spotless. Breakfast was first Class. The guest house is in a very central location close to the pier and about 15 minutes walk to the railway station.We will certainly return

First the good points. We were met very warmly by all the staff at Kempfield House, the location was very central and the breakfast was very good as well. However, in no particular order, are the bad points. 1) Very noisy particularly from other guests due to poor sound proofing. 2) Bathroom ceiling peeling away. 3) Bathroom plumbing very bad....

Having seen the other reviewers use words like "Faultless" and "Hidden Gem" I am wondering if I stayed in the same hotel! we booked a "standard" double, I would seriously advise you to go for the "superior" options, "standard was for me very much below standard!. First of all I don't find that being welcomed by someone sitting at a... More

This is a lovely B&B that exceeded all expectations. Staff were welcoming on arrival, and the room was clean and quirky, with a welcoming bottle of wine and chocolates. Great location just minutes from the sea front, it is a perfect base for exploring Brighton. Would stay again and highly recommend.
