We had everything we needed in this flat. It was spacious and light.
Julie and Bruce even had a bottle of bubbly chilling and waiting for us when we arrived. A lovely touch especially as I was getting married.
The parking is a huge plus! When we were over in January we stayed in the center and we got 2 tickets!!! Halcyon is in a great location as there are no parking restrictions.
The products in the flat were all organic too!!! A great touch.
Thanks Julie and Bruce from the Irish contingency.
I travelled to Brighton to take part in the marathon,and stayed at Halcyon with my husband and two teenage sons. I honestly couldn't have found anywhere more perfect for this trip. Having travelled over 10- hours from Scotland to Brighton, race day could not have been easier, the house is just a few mins jog to the start of the marathon! Probably the easiest start I've ever had for any race! Inside, the house was modern, bright, spacious and well equipped. A perfect place to chill out. We enjoyed sitting out on the sunny patio. Location was great, a walk or short bus journey into the centre. Train to London a few mins walk, along with shops, pubs and places to eat just a short walk away. Couldn't ask for more. The friendly hospitality of the hosts was was much appreciated too .
A very warm and homely flat everything you need and more, fantastic location. Will be back very soon. Thank you Julie and Bruce. Ps love the coffee!
Well what can i say....when i booked this place i was looking forward to staying in Brighton for the week, but once we arrived the flat exceeded our expectations. What the photos dont show is actually how spacious it is. We came and stayed with our two young children in one room and my brother and family in the other. The larger bedroom had a large comfy double bed, with enough space for a single futon and a travel cot with plenty more space for it not to be cramped. The built in wardrobes were ideal as it meant we werent living out of our suitcases all week.
The whole feel of the flat is light, airy and modern and with large patio doors leading onto a decked area, it would be perfect for a bbq on a warm summers evening. Unfortunately it was freezing while we were there so couldnt enjoy this but flat is good at holding its heat when chilly outside.
Free on street parking and being on a main bus route makes its really easy to get to town within 10 minutes.
This flat was great for us with kids, and was a real bonus to have a dish washer and washing machine, as meant we werent constantly washing up or having to find a laundrette.
The owners are friendly and welcoming and provided everything you could want from a holiday home. A real home from home experience...but better...just perfect!!
Would highly recommend this place :) also such a good price for central Brighton.

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.
