We are from Vienna, Austria, and enjoyed our short stop in Brighton and Boydens Guest House very much. Helen is the perfect host. She is a very friendly person and it was nice to chat with her. The room was small, but everything necessary was available, it was clean and the bed very comfortable. There were several variants of breakfast... More

My stay at Boyden's was delightful - the B&B is centrally located, the room was as pictured / described, breakfast was tasty, and Helen & William were pleasant and accommodating. I will definitely stay here again when I return to Brighton!

We took a chance and knocked on the front door. So very glad we did. Helen is just lovely, so helpful and welcoming. The house is really clean. The bed is very comfortable with really nice soft towels left out. Tea and coffee in the room along with fluffy white towels and a house coat. Nice to also find a... More

Helen is really friendly and obliging and our room was lovely and comfortable and even had a mini fridge! Good value in comparison to others and a good location as you are only a short walk away from the beach, bars, pier and shops but far enough for it to be quiet.

I stayed for 4 nights and chose Boydens because I wanted something close to the Brighton Centre and it seemed like the best value for money for a private room. Excellent location, nice comfortable rooms, amazing friendly hosts and good value for money. Couldn't have asked for more

We stayed here back in November for a short weekend trip to Brighton. Our room was the Superior Double room and the bed was amazingly comfortable and big. The room itself wasn't very big, but the bed itself compensated for it. There was also a mini-fridge in the room which was very convenient in keeping your drinks and snacks cool,... More

Helen was lovely and welcoming. The hotel was well-located and perfect for what I needed. Breakfast was lovely, yummy wafers, fruit and cakes. Great value for money. Bed was comfortable. Sheets were perfectly clean and reminded me of my 800 thread-count egyptian cotton sheets from home. All in all, a fantastic stay!
