“Quality Bed and Breskfast”
Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

I stayed at Boydens in April before running in the Brighton marathon.
The service we received was fantastic with the couple who run the hotel putting on a special early breakfast for us runners.
We had a ensure room which would be perfect for a short stay.
The location is also perfect within walking distance to the seafront and town centre. The only downside is the parking in the area.
I would definitely stay again and would recommend this B&B to anyone.
Thanks for a great weekend

We stayed at Boydens guest house for 2 nights. Helen was an excellent host.Very welcoming and friendly. Our room was clean and tastefully decorated with a huge comfy bed!! Would definately recommend this small friendly guest house. As it we were celebrating a birthday, Helen left a bottle of wine which was a nice touch!
There is a pizza/pasta restaurant just along form the guest house.Excellent food and very good value. We also went on the brighton wheel, which is worth a visit.

Helen and William are lovely hoast's, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast is cooked fresh every morning, it's in an ideal location close to the seafront, pier and the centre of Brighton. We recommend to anyone.

Visited Brighton with a friend and found Helen and her partner very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was 1st class with lots of choice, I had a full English on the first morning and scrambled eggs on the second, both were lovely. The room was very clean and comfortable. Our new kettle didn't work but on informing Helen, she replaced this immediately (very good service). We parked across the road from the B & B which was £10 per day and provided by the B & B. This was convenient but if you don't want to pay you can park a few streets away for free. Location is really close to the beach, Brighton Wheel, mini golf on the beach and the pier and only a short walk from Brighton centre and the Pavillion. Lots of nice restaurants and bars near the B & B. We had lovely meals at both a local Thai and Italian restaurant. We also had some nice drinks and good service at the bar/restaurant at the end of the road in Kemp Town. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Room Tip: We got the en suite room, bathroom was small but clean, modern and functional

The welcome we had was friendly and very helpful with maps and directions to the local attractions. A two minute walk to the sea, which you can see from the front step, and the shopping centre not much further. Parking is available within a road or so, though we were lucky to park just a few doors away. The room was well appointed, clean and had everything we needed for the weekend. We will return as the service was excellent as was the location. Worth a visit!
