Had a very enjoyable weekend at Cowards. Room spacious with nice added touches of white fluffy towels and cookies. Room bright, clean and spacious. Julie and Melina are very friendly and accommodating and do a five star breakfast. We were also close to the Lanes, the beach and a variety of bars and restaurants. Will definitely be visiting again.Would recommend... More

Its a small and very friendly B&B close to all amenities, the Lanes, beach, Pavillion, shops and Marina and also close to bus stops if you want to venture further afield. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and had plenty of information on what was going on and where to go. The breakfasts were one of the best... More

We stayed at Cowards for a couple of nights as our daughter really wanted to see Brighton. Julie greeted us when we arrived and couldn't of been more helpful. The room was very spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and again both Julie and Melina were very friendly. Everything was spotlessly clean and tidy. We wouldn't hesitate in staying there... More

Second stay at Cowards guesthouse. The owners are friendly and accommodating and the new lay out in the breakfast room is bright and welcoming. I stayed for one night in the top floor double ensuite room. The room was clean and well presented. Would recommend to anyone looking to stay in Brighton.

Spent 2 nights at Cowards last Friday and Saturday. Host Julie and Melina were there to welcome us when we arrived and always on hand to tend to our every need. The house is lovely in a great loaction for everything from Bars/Restaurants to transport and of course the seafront and all that has to offer. Our room was spacious... More

Stayed for two nights and really enjoyed it. Can't speak highly enough of the place Julie and Melinda are running. Had a single room and it was quiet (if your after somewhere with a sea view then I guess you need to take your chances with the noise and proprietors down the seafront). Room had tv, shower, kettle - all... More

Couldn't fault Cowards at all. Great location near to the beach and the Lanes. We had room 2 which was spacious and we were provided with a large fan so slept well despite the weather being very warm. The breakfast was one of the best I've ever had in a guest house! Perfectly cooked. Lovely. A lovely weekend and we... More

A wonderful B&B close to the seafront. I stayed for one night. The welcome was lovely and shows the owners care for their guests. My room at the top of the house was ideal. Bright adequate and tasteful soft furnishings. It was ideal for what I wanted. Breakfast was designed around you the client and was a lovely hearty full... More

I stayed for four days at Cowards. It was impeccably clean and the hosts were very welcoming. Each day started with a fantastic breakfast. Cowards is a character building and as such the rooms/hallways are small - but that adds to the atmosphere in a positive way. The rooms are well appointed and modern in their amenities (TV, shower, fridge).... More

Well what can I say? It was a last minute booking for work, as I travelled from Ipswich. I was welcomed at the door by a lovely lady, who then took me to my room and gave me all the information I need! Being young and on my own is sometimes nerve racking in a place I've never been before... More
