“Wonderful Owner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

Very affordable, clean & quiet property. Very accessible to Brighton centre and seafront. The owner was extremely welcoming and kind. We visited for a family birthday and he supplied us with a lovely chocolate cake! The photo of the room from another visitor suggesting an issue of security, doesn't show the bolts at the top and the bottom of both doors. We stayed in this room did not have any concerns about security. Would recommend this place and will stay again.

Room Tip: There is a basement area (own separate locked entrance) with a shared bathroom which is ideal for fa...

We stayed here for 2 nights in January, landlord was very friendly and welcoming. It felt very homely hear and was ideal for what we wanted just somewhere to sleep and showered! Very good value for money and excellend location right on top of everything you need - seafront, restuarants, shopping centre and clubs. Liked the fact you could come and go as you please there where no time restrictions. Would stay hear again.

Pillows and bed smelled horrible. Could not get a good nights sleep and wake up with headache. I left early and requested a refund for the last night but no chance of that from the owner. He likes to overcharge some people it seems.

We came to Brighton for a music festival and left it a little late in finding accomodation. Surprisingly, this B&B had vacancies and at £25 pppn we thought we were onto a winner as we were pretty desperate. We were put into the basement flat which shared a bathroom. This wasn't a problem as the other room in the basement was taken by friends of ours.

Good points: cheap, good location, the housemaid was friendly and always did a good job.

Bad points:
1) the door of the rear bedroom (which leads to the garden and street outside) is totally unsecure. No lock, only a chain keeps it closed which can be opened by putting your hand through the window (which has no lock either) - see photo. Could be broken into incredibly easily in 30 seconds with no damage caused. When i complained to the owner he loosly fitted a very small ineffectual bolt. I got the feeling he either wanted to spend as little money as possible or didn't want the door damaged when broken into. We felt our stuff wasn't at all safe and moved it into our friends rooms. I'm not sure how secure the rest of the B&B is.

2) This is basically a student hovel style flat, small, grubby, old furniture, thin walls, cold.


To summarise, this is a cheap b&b with a good location but probably one of the worst you will ever stay in. The guy who runs it seems friendly but if something doesn't work, don't expect him to care. Don't bring anything you don't mind beiong stolen. Would I stay here again? Not unless I was pretty desperate.

This is probably a good example of where spending just an extra £10 a night for somewhere better would be well worth it.

Very reasonably priced. Clean and comfortable. Quiet. In the centre so all sites and amenities within walking distance. Helpful friendly welcoming reception. Tea/coffee facilities. Room tidied daily. TV. Cheaper parking 2 miles away at Hove Train Station - fine if you don't need to use the car.
