“Beautiful flat”
Reviewed April 10, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This is a beautiful flat, which had everything you could wish for in a holiday house. The beds were very comfortable (including the futon sofa bed in the sitting room which my son slept on) and the kitchen and rest of the flat was well equipped.
The owners live in the house above the flat and were very welcoming and helpful, they even made sure we had milk, tea, coffee and a packet of biscuits on our arrival.
There are some local shops just around the corner (including a very nice organic shop which sold every thing from fresh meat to Ecover products), and there is a small Sainsbury's at the bottom of the hill, but this really only sells the very basics.
There are lots of buses into town which run regularly. We are a family of 5 and bought a family saver ticket every day which cost £9, you can use this all day on any of the bus routes.
This was our first visit to Brighton and loved the town. We had a wonderful evening in the Olive Grove, located in The Lanes, there are also a few nice pubs and café bars on the main road into Brighton (the A23 - London Road).
I would definitely recommend a city break to Brighton, and this flat is a great place to stay.

“Everything we needed and wanted”
Reviewed March 19, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Have just come back from our stay at halcyon and have to say that it was the best experience we have had in Brighton -so much so that we decided to extend our stay.

From the moment we enquired about the flat we received prompt and helpful communication from Bruce and Julie who are great hosts. They really did everything they could to accommodate us which is very appreciated especially as I have health issues.

We had everything we needed and wanted. Complimentary milk , tea, sugar and biscuits was a nice touch and saved my husband a trip to sainsburys, thank you and the minute I saw eco friendly cleaning products I was at home :)

The flat is very clean, spacious but warm. Has all mod cons- dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, oven , gas hob, fridge , freezer. There's also a hairdryer in the bedroom chest of drawers.

Very quiet and peaceful with a beautiful little sunny patio.

You can park for free on the road outside which is very rare in Brighton. Only a 10 minute drive to the laines.

Safety deposit was refunded very shortly after leaving

Will definitely be back! Thanks for everything

I went to Brighton at this flat for 1 weeks with my husband and my children.
The flat is very nice, very dirty, and cosy. near to the town around 10mins on car but it's perfect for holiday. The ladie is very very nice.
I recommend this flat .

Had a fabulous 3 night break in November 2015. The location is perfect right near the City centre with easy transport near by. Flat is beautiful with everthing you could need and furnished to a stunning modern level. Owners really helpful with suggestions for eating out & access into Brighton and very relaxed when requested a later check out time. The images do not do this lovely flat justice, really spacious & perfect for cosy evenings after exploring around Brighton. Parking right outside which is such a bonus for Brighton. Would highly recommend this perfect flat for comfort and ideal location and is furnished to a really high standard we cant wait to visit again.

Lovely quiet location situated in a residential street. The apartment offers good accommodation which is cleaned to a high standard. We even had a bunch of flowers in the kitchen on arrival which I felt was very welcoming. We were met on arrival promptly with the keys and given lots of information on the area and how to get around via foot or bus. Good on road parking and good bus service to access the town. There is a local park that you will walk through if you plan to walk to the town centre which is approx 30 min walk. The lanes are very interesting to shop lots of independent shops which are great ! lots of places to eat and drink. We had great weather so we're able to enjoy the beach. Brighton is a great place to stay with friends of family lots of choice to meet individual needs . A great stay was had by all 3 mature couples

“A lovely comfortable stay in Halcyon”
Reviewed September 25, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We liked everything about the flat, from the well-equipped kitchen to the detail and decor in the main bedroom. Julie was very friendly and helpful.The whole booking process was efficient and straightforward. We would definitely recommend the flat and would stay there again.
Liked best: overall feel and nice little patio to have breakfast.
Liked least: we did not feel the accommodation was suitable for more than 4 people. There are no curtains in the living room area so sleeping on the sofa bed means the light comes in very early.

“Excellent Apartment. Lovely Owners.”
Reviewed September 1, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed at Halcyon for a week in August. Very spacious apartment. Exactly as described. Clean and comfortable.

Julie and Bruce are very welcoming.

Around a 30 minute walk to the seafront. Bus journey back £2.40 each single fare or the walk back took us around 40 minutes.

The weather probably couldn't have been any worse for our Summer holiday so unfortunately we didn't get to use the bbq nor terrace area.

Would recommend.
