“This was the best possible place for us to stay on our first visit to England.”
Reviewed 1 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed at this flat for a week over the Christmas holiday. It was cosy and warm and Julie was welcoming and had even put up a Christmas tree for us which was so delightful! We loved the feeling of just living in a British neighborhood and going to the butcher's and bakery and other shops in Five Ways, which were within easy walking distance.
Because of the proximity to the buses we could conveniently enjoy all the wonderful things in Brighton- Royal Pavilion, The Laines, North Lanes, the sea view and Pier and so on. Since the Preston Park rail station is just a 5 minute walk, we took the train to London for an awesome day trip and then another day to the village of Lewes where there are great pubs, and a Norman castle. It was really great to have access to so many different sites, while feeling safe and secure at this flat. Oh, and the quality of the fixtures was also exceptional. We recommend this place and would gladly return.

“Comfortable, stylish apartment”
Reviewed 7 November 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The apartment is below street level in a semi and opens onto a small deck. Very bright, beautifully renovated and with comfortable, quality furnishings, linen etc. even the sofa bed was very comfortable. Plenty of room for four adults. Internet access was good and reliable. Our arrival was a little confusing, there is no 'Halcyon" sign anywhere. The owners live in the house next door, there is a small side path separating the two houses and providing access to the apartment. Parking was sometimes available at other times a short walk away. The owners are friendly and helpful. The apartment has everything you need. Buses to Brighton are nearby though we found it cheaper to drive. Shops and a pub within walking distance. We enjoyed our stay.

“Perfect location, and high quality apartment”
Reviewed 29 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed here for three nights whilst moving our daughter into accommodation ready for university . It was perfectly situated for us which is just out of the town but close to a bus stop to get in or out of town . Taxis were also reasonable to and from the center.
Both Julie and Bruce were really pleasant to talk to , and nothing seemed to much trouble .
The apartment has been finished to a high standard, I work in the building trade and know where shortcuts are made , and there clearly weren't any , it really was a nice place to be .
Parking is plentiful on the road , but to be honest it's pointless moving your car to go in to town as parking in Brighton is really limited. Great stay and hopefully will stay again. Many thanks lyn and Iain
