On arrival the owner come out to our car with our parking permits and helped us in with our bags. The room was clean and bright. The breakfast was excellent and the location is perfect (only 5 minutes walk from the Brighton Lanes). We will definitely stay there again on our next visit.

The hotel is really cosy and our room was spotless........some have said the rooms are a little small, and yes they... More

We had our niece from Canada with us and after being very disappointed in another venue we booked we were so relieved to find rooms at Alvia. The rooms were clean and tastefully decorated and breakfast was really good.

We stayed in room 6 at the back of the b&b, which had a comfy double bed & modern on suite. We found this room quite compact, but know from previous b&b's spacious bedrooms are... More
