With a stags, last minute decision to come to Brighton and the prospect of "finding a space on his mates floor!" I decided to try and find a "cheap" nights B&B instead. The £35 - £45 pppn market doesnt really exist at weekends in Brighton so I called the White House to see if they would relax their 2 night minimum policy. Sean was happy to oblige and was a pleasure on the phone, and I booked the £60 single with sea view.
I decided to get the train down instead of driving as i am aware of the notorious parking, but did notice that there where some spaces on the nearby streets as i walked by. I had the absolute joy to be met by Charlie when I arrived who just left me with a smile on my face as to how pleasant she was.
The single room with a sea view (6) was small, but its a B&B, and as long as I can sleep and shower then I am happy and both of those things was well catered for. The bed was perfect in terms of comfort and the shower, although small, does exactly as described well. Beautiful clean decor and bed linen with fluffy towels, as well as decent selection of teas, and complimentary mineral water and Mars Bar just finish it all off. The only downside was the sharing a toilet on the landing but a minor point.
I noticed some reviews complaining about breakfast being a bit late, but actually,(the morning after stag night), the last call of 10.30 for breakfast was perfect I thought. (the only problem was so did everyone else so Sean had a bit of a handful with 7 tables all at once). However the food is worth the wait, although my only regret was not asking if I could have had scrambled eggs instead of fried with my "english" as they looked amazing.
I don't normally do reviews, but felt genuinely pleased to have chosen the White House and would certainly use them again in any future trips to Brighton.
