Stayed for one night. Nice comfortable hotel. Great service, owner has time for a little talk. Price combined with the hotel in balance!

We are regular visitors to Brighton, so have stayed in lots hotels/guest houses over the years. As soon as we arrived, we were greeted in a super friendly way, and had help with our bags. Our room was nice and homely, had a lovely view of Palace Pier, and a complimentary bowl of sweets which we ate lots of, so...

We have just had an amazing weekend in Brighton and we stayed at this hotel. We only wanted a crash pad for the night and wasn't expecting much after the reviews. BUT, what a lovely friendly little place. The room was lovely, yes a little dated, but quaint, comfortable and clean. Staff fell over themselves to be friendly and helpful...

We stayed at Ainsley House last night and were very happy. We had excellent communication with the owners before we arrived, a lovely greeting on the day and we were even invited to join a birthday party that was going on in the dining room! Great hosts, clean and comfortable room, we would definitely stay again. Thanks guys!

We read reviews of this hotel - which we'd booked because it had vacancies during the Festival period when everywhere was filling up fast - after booking, and many were negative, so it was a relief to find things were better than expected. I've no idea why some people found the landlady anything but great fun and very helpful. Our...

One night was all I could have coped with. A very rude and defensive land lady. The place smells and was unclean and old, sad furnishings and carpets. Didn't have the breakfast as was worried I might get food poisoning. Would have gone elsewhere If I could. I just drank a lot in order to sleep on the very cheap...

I booked this hotel before reading the reviews, which after reading I was expecting the worst. On arriving I was greeted by a very friendly lady and given room keys and information on breakfast etc. My room was room 11, to which I was more than pleased with. The view was perfect, the room was clean and fresh, shower room...

Stayed here for two nights, the room was a decent size for a twin- room but old and worn out furniture, everywhere was dusty and dirty, curtains were shabby and I,m glad I brought my own tea and coffee sachets as I think the ones in the room may have been there since the place opened. We had a fridge...

Let’s start with the positives: Location is spot on, 2 mins walk to the pier. Negatives: First impression: Less than welcoming greeting (hadn't printed my booking - shock horror). General décor seemingly 30 years dated, but not in a favourable nostalgic type manner. Room (ten): a pungent aroma greeted us, a charming combination of toilet and old people type odours...
