I am a regular visitor to Brighton and have stayed in a lot of hotels. Nothing beats the kelvin, it's location is fantastic and has a warming welcoming atmosphere with a team of wonderful people and breakfast was brilliant. I will definitely be staying at the kelvin again and again!!

This B&B is in a great location, far enough from the main streets nearby, but tucked out of the way. It is a stone's throw from the beach and associated attractions, including the pier and the new big wheel!

The rooms are good sized for the type & age of building and most have an en-suite too. TV, tea and coffee facilities are provided in the room too. Our room was cleaned everyday by a really friendly cleaner.

The breakfast was fantastic. Always lots of good hearty food on offer and you could always alter the menu items to have a personalised breakfast!

Paul & Shaun were great hosts, always friendly and ready with advice on where to go and what to do locally. Highly recommended.

Hello Shaun and Paul.
Hubbs, Boo, Manthing and I cannot wait to check into the FABULOUS Kelvin, once again this coming Thursday for three nights and four fun filled days!!
Just wanted to say ''HI'' before we all descend upon you, and I am glad I did, as I have just read the report before my one and I am stunned........Who was she?
The Kelvin is the best place we have stayed at in Brighton.....and YES...we have been to quite a few dear.....even The Grand (which wasn't a patch on the Kelvin)
Shaun's breakfast's are the BIZZZZZZ, I challenge anybody to find better!!
The hospitality is second to none and the place is as shiny as a new pin.....what do you expect from two fabulous queens!!!!
I hope any new potential guests will not be put off by the moronic comment before my entry, as they will miss out on a ruddy marvelous stay in Brighton!
See you soon boys.

I regularly stay at the Kelvin and I always have a fantastic time, the room was spotless and the breakfast was great!

The atmosphere is great and I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

I will definitely be going back there on my travels from Lancashire just as soon as I can!
