Stylish B&B

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 22, 2008

My overall impression of this B&B was that it's a little overpriced for what it is, but then accommodation generally in Brighton is very expensive so expect to pay through the nose for some guaranteed comfort. The owners are very nice indeed and the rooms were apparently refurbished only recently. A kettle, biscuits, tea and coffee were available in the room which was a plus.

Our room was the one in the attic which had a nice view over the rooftops of Brighton but I'd say choose one of the other rooms that I suspect are slightly bigger. The attic room has a bath at the end of the bed, which is a novel way of dealing with a ceiling space that doesn't allow for a shower but unless you're spending a lot of time in the bath pampering yourself, a shower is probably preferable anyway.

The room was let down by the bed itself which was clearly a cheap pine thing (that didn't really match up with the lovely decor and the very cool bedside lamps!) and a mattress that could have been more comfortable.

Unfortunately breakfast finishes at 10.00, which given that you're paying quite a bit and it's the weekend I was disappointed by. As I was out at festivities catching up with old university pals both nights my hangover didn't really allow for me to get up early enough to experience it.

Unique Quality: Everything is in very good shape and the location is excellent - on the border with Hove just round the corner from Waitrose - a couple of minutes walk from the seafront and still in walking distance from the train station.

They have wi-fi but you'll need a password. Make sure that you get that from the hosts upon arrival or you'll be stuck if you need to look up directions on your laptop in a hurry and can't find the owners... My own fault though really.

Maybe I would have appreciated this place more if I hadn't had such a hectic schedule and could at least have attended breakfast. Ultimately I've enjoyed stays more in other B&Bs in other parts of the country that have been much better value. That said though, overall given given it's location, cleanliness and the fact that there is so much more overpriced accommodation in Brighton this place is probably as good as anything else available at this rate. Just not quite as special as it could be.

Directions: About 20 minutes walk from Brighton train station, near the Waitrose store on Western Road, one of the main shopping streets.
