This was the first time my wife and I stayed at a Guest house and we were surprised by the quality and cleanness of the place. The owner Scott was a very nice and welcoming guy who helped us check in and check out. There was a breakfast basket added to our room and was filled every day with fruits,...

My partner and I stayed at the Aquarium Guest House, for 2 nights in February, for the Brighton Half Marathon. From start to finish, we had an excellent stay. On arrival, Scott was welcoming and helpful. We had driven up and parking is difficult around the hotel, but he managed to direct us to certain streets we could park on....

Had a great weekend at the Aquarium Guest House. Scott, the owner was really friendly and helpful. 10/10 for the room and 15/10 for the bed which was super comfy! The whole guesthouse had a very pleasant atmosphere; overall had a great stay and would definitely come again. Thanks!

We stayed at the Aquarium in early December, which is a great time to be in Brighton, that is if the weather cooperates, which it did. The guest house is on a quaint street of 200 year old townhouses, with the sea visible at the end of the block. Kemptown is a wonderful and eclectic neighborhood. St James Street, just...

The bed was very comfortable, room was very clean and tidy. The guest house is also in a good location, very close to the beach and the pier. The owners, Scott and Helen gave us a very warm and friendly welcome. Overall we very much enjoyed our stay.

Before we booked I read a few reviews and descriptions so I was shocked to find a standard double bed in our tiny room. Beware when booking. Only superior rooms seem to have King sizes beds. A list of small annoying things wrong with our stay... (not all at the fault of the owners) The TV is on the wrong...

I stayed here with my husband for the weekend! We didn't arrive until the Friday evening but still had a lovely warm welcome from Scott and Helen. Our room was perfect it had everything we needed and more and it was spotlessly clean. The location is perfect for visiting any of Brightons attractions/ shops / restaurants etc. There isn't a...

This is the second time we have stayed at the Aquarium, and I must say how much we enjoyed our stay there. Located in charming kemp town, Brighton just a short walk away from everything, such as the pier, the winter gardens and various brilliant bars and restaurants. The guesthouse is a wonderful townhouse and you feel like your staying...

The room was very clean and immaculate with lovely decor. It is located very central to shops and restaurants and a 5 min walk to the actual town. It was perfect for me on a girls weekend as nightlife was very close. Scott and Helen were very nice and welcoming when checking in and out. It was nice knowing if...
