“Perfect hen do house!”
Reviewed January 26, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Had a fantastic stay at Beatnik Stable. Myself and 12 other girls stayed at the house for my friends hen do and it was just what we wanted. Brilliant location in the centre of Brighton, loads of bedrooms (we didn't even use them all!), huge kitchen and our favourite was the lounge which was a lovely area for everyone to sit together.
Tamara who owns the house was very helpful from the beginning, when one of the other houses was unavailable she was able to offer this house instead. She offered lots of great activities you could book such as private dining and cocktail making. I was given lots of information about the house and able to check in early. All 13 of us really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend if you are looking for a lovely spacious house in the centre of Brighton.

“Suitable Large Accommodation”
Reviewed November 13, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We stayed in the Stables for a girls weekend in November and I think there are some pros and cons to the property so hopefully this will be a balanced view if you read it all! :) We had originally reserved the Central House but upon going to pay the deposit this has been taken even though we were told that if anyone wanted the house we would be informed to pay our deposit to secure, so that was a little frustrating, but were offered the Stables. A little annoying as we would have paid the deposit had we known, and that was the arrangement made with Tamara.

The Property:
The kitchen has a lovely long table where you can all eat together and is fully equipped. We had 10 of us staying there and it was great to sit at one half of the table but I imagine with the house full it may get hard to manoeuvre in and out of the table as you have to shimmy to the end, climb over or under the table! Fantastically equipped though to be cooking, and a lovely oven. Two fridge freezers.

If you are staying here take some ear plugs. There is no double glazing because of the style of property, and it can be noisy - people walking past, seagulls at 5am etc.

The Lounge:
Although the house sleeps many, five of those beds are on sofa beds in the lounge, and the lounge only seats 16 people. Again, fine for us as only 10 of us. Large TV on the wall - although noisy for whoever is in the bedroom behind so if they want an early night, no chance! :)

Bedrooms:
These are mainly bunk beds as per the pictures. There are only 2 double beds in the house - not the king size that is advertised and most of the doubles mentioned are mainly doubles on the bottom of the bunk beds. As mentioned only 2 double beds without a bunk on.

Bathrooms:
Whilst there are 4 bathrooms, the water pressure does struggle round the house. My shower ended abruptly as my friend ran a bath - I literally had no water coming out! This was never mentioned as an issue and if there are lots of you trying to get ready, you want to be able to use them at the same time! So can imagine 20+ people being a struggle all trying to get ready together!

Parking:
On Air BNB its advertised as free parking on premises. This is NOT the case. You have to find free parking 5 minutes away from the house, which is not that easy in Brighton. We had 4 cars and kept driving round and round to find spaces. Did not feel at ease parking the cars randomly round side streets over 5 minutes away from the house. There is 1 loading bay you can be in for 30 minutes outside the house if no-one else is in there, otherwise its double yellows and lots of resident permit only parking.

Cleaning:
Whilst the house is provided with towels and linen - you are expected to clean and hoover the house and leave as you found it else there is a fine and deduction of your £500 deposit (which takes a week to get back from checkout).

Activities:
Tamara was very happy to help with booking activities for the weekend and we had the Nude Life Drawing - very funny and good value for money although would be a push to get all of you in the lounge to do this.

Location:
Great location, short walk to central Brighton and the pier, or only a £6-£8 taxi ride.
When you arrive, the house is nothing amazing to look at, its a random door in a somewhat graffiti street but we had no issues with safety etc. Not easy on the eye, but inside the house is nice so who cares about outside right?!

Internet is not very strong and very intermittent,

Tamara was happy to meet any Tesco delivery and sort prior to arrival for us which was great as we ran late and Tesco arrived 5 minutes before us so she was there to let him in.

Hopefully a balanced review and informative.

“Weekend stay at the beatnik stables”
Reviewed November 3, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This place is absolutely perfect for a large group or small who want so much space. Was so well prepared for our group of 27 and had everything we needed. Contact between myself and the owners was so prompt when organising which made life so much easier :) can be very hard when organising a party for so many. It's in a great location and the house itself was so comfortable and a great setting for a gathering. Highly recommended this place and would definitely stay again if ever down in Brighton again.
Thank you Tamara and crew.
We had such a great time and stay

“Fabulous space for a fun-filled weekend 21st birthday celebration”
Reviewed October 17, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We were delighted when we arrived and found everything exactly as advertised. So much space for everyone to either spend time all together or chill out and relax. We especially liked the extra long dining table in the kitchen - plenty of room for our Bollywood themed 21st birthday dinner! Great to be able to comfortably seat a party of 21 and still have room to plate up 21x Tiffin boxes - quite the production line in the galley kitchen! There are lots of rules and regulations because of the residential neighbourhood but nothing that stopped us all having a great time!

Reviewed October 3, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We had a great hen weekend in Beatnik Stables. The accommodation was set up perfectly for what we needed - plenty of space for us all and the living room and kitchen meant we could all eat together.
Tamara was fantastic at helping us with all the arrangements, the Mexican chef being a highlight! The property is also located within walking distance from the beach so it was really nice to be able to walk down to the sea for a pub lunch in the Lanes. All in all, a great place to stay for a great weekend!

“Exactly what we were after. Perfect”
Reviewed September 27, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

A group of 20+ stayed here in the Beatnik Stable for a long weekend and it was everything we were looking for and more. Tamara was quick to respond to queries and her answers were precise and informative. We hired a local chef to cook us a locally-sourced breakfast on the Sunday. Just so happened to be Michelin-starred chef, Chris Bailey!

If you're looking for a lovely venue to act as your base for a few days in Brighton then this is your place!
