“Warm welcome at this seaside Guest House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2011

As you would expect, Brighton as a popular destination has a large number of guest houses, and it may seem difficult to choose one over another. The Kelvin has much to recommend it, most of the rooms are spacious and very pleasantly furnished, the en suite bathrooms are clean and elegant and the breakfast is copious and well-served. What distinguishes this guest house from its rivals is the friendliness, constant good cheer and willingness to help of the owners. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Double rooms at the front are more expensive, but worth the extra money

We come every year to Brighton and have stayed in the Kelvin. It is a lovely hotel - spotlessly clean and the breakfast is just great. It is so close to the seafront and all the local amenities. Would definitley recommend it!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a weekend in September. The owners were very friendly and cooked a lovely breakfast! I would recommend staying here although as with most B&Bs in Brighton there is a minimum stay of 2 nights at the weekend and for our very small room (no toilet) I thought it was a little overpriced. However the room was very clean and the central location was great for exploring the town.

A cosy home away from home I'd like to call it thanks to the warm hospitality of Paul and Shaun. The Breakfast has got to be the best in Brighton freshly cooked to order and the location was perfect as we needed to be walking distance to the Dome and Brighton in general. We had a large clean, light, bright, neat and tidy room w/ attached power shower room. There are no shortage of restaurants and four supermarkets around the corner so whether you are staying for a weekend or a week The Kelvin is the place to stay.

Lovely clean, comfortable room. Super breakfast, welcoming & friendly hosts. A great location in Central Brighton. We had the best ever Indian meal at "The Bombay Mix" just up to the top of Street, first left...really cheap too !!
