“The Hosts with the Most”
Reviewed 20 April 2012

We booked to stay here on a Sunday and Monday night in March, mainly on the basis of its location and the previous reviews describing it as friendly and run by locals. We werent disappointed, greeted on arrival by Derek, who proceeded to take us through the town map and point out recommendations and places of interest. We were also upgraded to a larger room, without asking, because I was tall and the ensuite there had a taller shower. These little touches, coupled with the overall cleanliness of the place and its location only 10 minutes walk from The Laines meant that it was a perfect fit for someone looking for a place for a few nights stopover. The immediate area it's in may be nothing special, but there were several good bars and restaurants close by including a fantastic Indian down the street, and the breakfast wasn't too shabby either. Cheers Derek and Gary, we hope to come back some day.

Cavalaire is a perfect little B&B that ticks every box - lovely clean house, warm welcoming hosts, great location.

Derek and Garry looked after my boyfriend and I very well, greeting us warmly with tea and biscuits on arrival. They were attentive hosts, from recommending restaurants and bars in the local areas, to preparing fresh well executed breakfasts in the morning. With the coast and Kemp town's restaurants and bars just a stone's throw away, and Brighton centre 5 mins walk away, location couldn't be better.

Great quality and fantastic value. Highly recommended.

Garry and Derek were wonderful hosts and their recommendations of local bars and restaurants were sport on. The four poster bed was almost too comfy to leave and the rest of the room was immaculate. A lovely hotel and highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 3 had a gorgeous four poster bed.

Welcoming, lovely hosts. Lovely house, close to the beach, Kemp town restaurants and bars, short walk to centre. Fantastic stay. It was my boyfriend's birthday and they even gave him a little bottle of champers!
Looked after very well, will be staying here again!
Also recommended lovely places to eat and supported local businesses. Fab.

Stayed at The Cavalaire 27th & 28th March. Our only regret is that our stay was too short. Garry and Derek obviously enjoyed welcoming guests to their home. Breakfast became the venue for good humoured conversation, especially from mine host Derek. Buffy, the ancient Airedale, was a beautiful babe who on first acquaintance growled at my wife (hey result!). Garry the chef made sure that all cooked food was of the best quality and checks were made to make sure we had had enough. This B+B was spotless and decorated with taste and enthusiasm. Standing outside the front of the building the prom and beach were just at the end of the street, Just around the corner was a street dedicated to an exotic mix of small independent shops, pubs and cafe/restaurants. Garry and Derek, of course, would point out their favourites. This B+B is a gem worth seeking out,
