“Lovely”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

We spent 3 nights in Brighton, and stayed in a superior double at Kempfield House. There was a complimentary bottle of wine, nuts, chocolates, water and coke, with a hospitality tray, a very comfortable 4 poster bed, and a huge bath. The room was a good size, and we had plenty of room even with a travel cot set up for my son. All thr staff were lovely & very friendly, all of them interacted with our son which made us feel even more welcome. Breakfast was delicious, with good quality and local food. The hotel is in a prime location, near to the pier, the laines and all other attractions, but is still quiet at night. I would thoroughly recommend Kemofield House to anybody looking to stay in Brighton.

After looking at reviews for lots of hotels and B&B's in Brighton decided to stay at Kempfield House and glad I did! Excellent location on a little street basically opposite the pier. Our lovely four-poster bed room was towards the back so no problem whatsoever with noise. Bed was very comfy. The young lady at the reception was extremely helpful. There was a complimentary little bottle of wine and chocolates on the bed upon our arrival which added a lovely welcoming touch. Great big TV. Parking vouchers available for £10 for 24 hour parking so no problems with parking. Veggie breakfast available. You get 10% discount in the lovely Italian restaurant on the opposite side. And we only paid £58.50 on a deal for the room! The only problem might be that reception closes at 6pm and arrangements need to be made if arriving later.

A wonderful boutique hotel, with very welcoming staff, particularly Scarlett who is gorgeous, helpful and very sweet. Lovely room, complimentary tea and coffee and fantastic location. Can't recommend it enough, central place to explore Brighton.

Stayed at Kempfield house because we went to a show , what a find ,we normally stay in a bigger hotel on the seafront , but after reading TA reviews on Kempfield , thought we'd give it a try , and wasn't disapointed , this is a little gem , Chris is very welcoming , as are all the staff we came across , the room we stayed in was 'Marlborough' which was on the top floor , nice and cosy , warm and the most comfortable bed ive had in any hotel . That on top of a lovely freshly cooked 'Full English'(which we nearly missed because the clocks went forward!) what more could anyone want. Give Kempfield a try you will not be disappointed . We go to Brighton a few times a year and this will be our choice in the future , Thankyou .

Stayed at the kempfield for a concert. Got the parking pass which was £10 for 24hrs but was right outside so worth it in my eyes.

Room was spotless, service was great the staff were all welcoming and helpful. Very impressed!

We were 7 people in total and without exception we found this lovely guesthouse to be 1st class in all areas. Chris and staff couldn't do enough for you. Nice spacious rooms, good breakfast and nice little extras in each room. Will definitely stay again.

Stayed for one night to watch a concert.
Reception staff welcoming and helpful.
Room spotless with loads of towels and complimentary tea and coffee. Room on top floor so slightly small but not an issue for a few nights.
Breakfast brilliant, anything you wanted very prompt with real coffee.
Will definately return. Excellent value for money.
