“Excellent B&B **********Highly Recommended*********”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2007

Stayed at Genevieve for last minute night out and found it to be excellent. We stayed in the 'superior' room (No.2) which was 5star for the price (£95). Room was very, very clean and had a massive king size bed. En suite was a good size with a decent shower for a change. Very quiet considering it was ground floor at front of property. Breakfast was superb and very genrous portions using quality ingredients (Heinz beans, Anchor butter etc) - The small things do go a long way! All in all an excellent B&B run by friendly and polite people. Will definitely make this our first choice when we visit Brighton again.

The Genevieve Hotel is possibly not a "Hotel" if you're used to a Reception area, a bar and a lounge 'cos there ain't any; and so, by definition, is probably more of a Guest House. But don't let that put
you off if Guest Houses aren't your thing. It's non-smoking (ok, so it.s not for you if you smoke) and exceptionally clean throughout. It's very comfortable and all of a very high standard. We were in Room 9 which is at the back of the hotel and though without a "nice" view, you are guaranteed peace and quiet which is what we wanted. The bed is huge and comfortable (though if we nit pick, more plush pillows would have made "excellent" into "luxurious"). The facility of WiFi was faultless and very easy to use - if we can use it - anyone can!!! Breakfast was spot on, we're early (ish) risers so the issue of being too late for breakfast never arose. If you state your personal cooking preferences, chef is more than happy to oblige. The proprieters were lovely. Very friendly and very helpful. Our room was 3 flights up and our ample bags and baggages were all taken to our room for us, which after a long journey was very welcoming and much appreciated, as was the choc bar provided on the refreshments tray! The hotel is ideally situated for just about everything. 5 minutes walking to the sea front and pier, 10 minutes to the city centre and 2 minutes to Kemptown - the location populated by the gay community. As a gay couple we felt totally accepted and welcomed. There are a wide variety of clubs, bars and pubs in Kemptown to suit every taste. The only pain in the butt was the parking (the place needs a Park and Ride) but again, Dave - the proprieter made sure we didn't make any expensive errors. Thanks Dave and Lynne for a great Easter break - brace yourselves - we'll definitely be back! Jude and Ruth - the Cheshire Birds.

We have just returned from a magnificent Easter break at the Genevieve Hotel in Brighton. Our room was gorgeous - bright and sunny and the huge bed was exceptionally comfortable. We also loved the kingsize shower. The people who ran the hotel were totally charming and very helpful. We would totally recommend a visit to the hotel.

As a gay couple we felt totally accepted there and were very welcomed. The hotel was ideally situated for all the clubs, shops, bars and restaurants we wanted to visit.

The Genevieve is a well-situated guesthouse near the beach and many dining and shopping establishments in Brighton. I stayed a weekend and paid roughly $80 USD for a single room. Having made many trips to England I knew that a single room was going to be small and cozy, however, I was very pleased with the cleanliness of the room and bathroom and the freshness of the bedding. The entire place is non-smoking which is very important to me. The window above the bed allowed me to let cool air in which helps me to sleep. The proprietors were extremely cordial and let me borrow an iron and ironing board and were helpful in providing directions to various things I was looking for. Breakfast (full English for me) was very tasty but you must not sleep in too late or you will miss it. Overall, I was very pleased with my stay and would certainly recommend it to other travelers.

Three friends and myself have recently stayed at Genevieve Hotel in sunny Brighton, which was fab! Located just off of the sea front in the heart of Kemp Town, it's a real winner for all gay and lebians wanting to go wild on the gay scene. The hotel itself is immaculate throughout with great decor and rooms to suit everyone, which are all en-suit and comfortable! Next time I visit I will definately be booking one of the four poster rooms. The staff are really friendly and cant do enough for you. Brekfast is continental or a full english
which is served and cooked brillantly. So if you fancy a trip to Brighton I highly recomend The Genevieve Hotel!!!
