We really enjoyed our stay. The house is great - and in a perfect location, down a quiet street right in the middle of the action in Kemptow. We stayed in a clean, nicely decorated room street-facing room with a small but adequate ensuite bathroom. Helen is a really great host, and made a great breakfast.

Boydens Guesthouse is situated in a quiet street, 5 minutes from the beach and the pier. It is an old victorian home, neatly decorated. Our room was quiet, and big enough for two, the bathroom was rather small but complete with a good shower and all things to expect. A fridge in the room, theecooker, everything (and more) was there....

My husband and I were in town to see Bianca del Rio at the Dome and only down for one night. Most B&Bs in Brighton want two nights minimum so Boydens was a lucky find. Slap bang in the middle of Kemptown and 5 minutes from the sea, Helen the owner is a wonderful, friendly and attentive host. Our bed...

This is a fantastic guest house and I would recommend it to anyone. The location is great, literally in the heart of Kemp Town so if you want it, some good bars are only stones throw away. Helen and Billy were very welcoming when we arrived and made us feel that if there was anything we needed we need only...

Helen was very welcoming and helpful. The room was comfy and warm with free teas and coffees and a fridge which was handy. It was a bit of a shame that the TV couldn't be angled down to watch at night. The bathroom was small but functional. Helen gave us her details in case we had any issues which was...

The location is only a few minutes walk from the center of the city and the ocean. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby. I recommend staying here during peak days as it's much cheaper than many other places. The room itself is not too big, but I never felt cramped. There is a high quality sink, a decent...

Boydens is run by Helen and her husband who are super friendly and helpful. It's literally 2 minutes from the beach... close to North Laine and all the clubs and pubs. Hot shower, tea and coffee, fluffy towels, hairdryer, large TV and comfy beds... what more could you ask for!
