“Favourite and only place to stay when in Brighton!”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

The room was lovely and had everything we needed! Was so clean and tidy from the front door to your room! Breakfast was cooked very well with a nice service. But best of all the owners and staff were so kind and funny! Staying here again! (and again and again!)

Stayed at the Kelvin on the Saturday night with very late notice. The place is very nice. The room was a good size with a massive bed, close to the seafront (50 yards). The breakfast was also good. The reaon I would stay there again are the guys who run it. Great chaps, friendly and likeable. All in all I would recommend this for any short stays in Brighton.

This is a nice little place in a great location. The people who run it are very friendly and welcoming and did everything they could to make our stay a good one. Rooms are smallish but very clean and the beds were comfortable. Nice, bright, airy feel to the rooms. Breakfast was cooked to order which was great. Parking was a bear, but you expect that nearly anywhere in Brighton. And the location of the guest house was unbeatable -- just up from Brighton's version of the London Eye with the pier and lots of great shopping and restaurants/pubs close at hand.

I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it wholeheartedly.

The hotel was clean with frendly attentative staff.
Good breakfast and very close to the sea front with the pavilion a short walk away.
I would not hesitate to stay there again or recomend The Kelvin to others.
Within its price bracket I believe that 5 stars are well deserved
