“A touch of luxury”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Booked the single room for 2 nights. Room has everything you need from bath robe and slippers to a fabulous coffee machine. The room is small but perfectly formed and breakfast was delicious. A choice of cooked breakfast, which i went for the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, as well as helping yourself to pastries, fresh fruit and cereals. Would definitely stay here again.

What a lovely venue! The décor, and stylish touches are above an beyond what one would expect from a seafront B&B; bathrobes, slippers, stunning artwork, beautiful toiletries, fluffy towels, biscuits, chocolate and the most amazing coffee maker in the room!
Our room (3) was somewhat smaller than some of the others, but we lost a bit of room by having it set up as a twin, rather than a double. That said, it was still exceptional value for money!
I was part of a wedding party, that booked out the whole place, and nothing was too much trouble for us (even the combinations of food allergies!), although I don't think we got "special treatment" for being such a big party .
The breakfast selection was fantastic, and the full English was SO tasty! Another fantastic coffee machine in the breakfast room!
We couldn't have felt more welcome!
I would definitely recommend this lovely place, if you like a bit of style, great service and fantastic value for money!

Room Tip: The bigger rooms face out to the sea, at the front of the building.

We've just got back from spending the night at this lovely guest house as a birthday treat. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready, but we were given the choice of another room, but decided to go for a walk until our room was ready. The guest house is fresh, modern, light and airy. Our room was on the ground floor and it was decorated to a high standard and we was impressed by the little extras that was added such as bottles of water, dressing gowns, slippers, biscuits etc. The only drawback was that we found the bathroom a little small. This was our first time to Brighton and Stephen guided us to the best places to visit. The free parking area is at front of the premises and it was a bonus, considering it was on the sea front. Breakfast was wide and varied and my allergies were catered for. We both enjoyed our stay and would recommend this guest house highly.

We have just returned from a great weekend staying at "A Room With A View" and I must say that it truly is a wonderful hotel. We stayed in Room 10 right at the top a bit of a climb up the stairs (No lift) but we did know that in advance, but the view alone was worth the climb. The room was lovely and modern also the free parking and free Wi-Fi was a bonus. All I can really say is we will return!

This is a wonderful guest house in Brighton. It is beautifully modern and the attention to detail is amazing. The room has everything that one could possibly need - I was most impressed by the little things that made it stand out as special - e.g. bottles of water, coasters on the bedside table, delicious chocolate, a night light in the bathroom, etc. The bed/mattress/pillows were the most comfortable I have ever experienced. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and, again, the attention to detail was superb - for example, not only fresh fruit salad but also dried fruit, seeds, honey, and fresh Greek yogurt. The welcome at A Room with A View was so friendly, warm and welcoming. I would highly recommend this beautiful and quite exceptional guest house.

I cannot speak highly enough of A Room With A View! One of the nicest and most beautiful places I've ever stayed. Our room (no. 8) was incredible - bright, fresh and airy with a huge white sleigh bed, topped with a goose down duvet and pillows. The views were amazing, it was a sunny weekend and we could see for miles all along the beach, pier and out to sea. Great night's sleep and we even woke up to the smell of fresh pastries...! Perfect location for exploring Brighton, and free parking which was a real bonus. Stephen was especially helpful - for just a small extra fee he arranged for Prosecco and cupcakes to be put in our room for my boyfriend's birthday. Fantastic breakfast too. Could not have asked for better service. We will be back!

Very friendly welcome including help with bags. Clean and smartly decorated rooms - nespresso machine, hot water kettle, biscuits, water and even a bar of chocolate - it's not expensive to offer these little details, but it makes such a nice difference and really gives a sense of welcome. Stayed in room 10 - lovely balcony, but no direct view sitting in the room. Given Brighton weather, a room with a window view may be a better option, but still a lovely room. Well done to the charming team at Room With a View!
