The Amblecliff
Ranked #56 of 95 Brighton B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 August 2011

This was the second time my partner and myself have stayed at the Amblecliff. We had no hesitation to recommend it to our friends and as we were planning a trip to Brighton in August, we all stayed in this lovely B&B. If you are looking for luxury and the price tag to match then this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a lovely clean room, comfortable bed, great breakfast, excellent location and friendly staff then this is definitely the place for you! Elaine and her staff will make you most welcome, I will definitely be staying there again when I next visit Brighton. Fantastic place to stay!

We enjoyed our stay at The Amblecliffe, a small, affordable, typically English hotel in Brighton. Somehow this is exactly the kind of hotel you want to stay at when visiting Brighton. The Amblecliffe is not brand new or a luxury hotel. I'd describe it as comfortable, relaxed, and a place with character. Like a B&B.

We had a larger room in the front. Nice bathroom and good shower. Soft bed. All you needed to make coffee and tea in the room. Free cookies and candies.

They served a generous, delicious breakfast (but they don't lay out an extensive spread on buffet like you might see in a larger hotel).

We didn't hear anyone at all (surprising in an older house like this), although one morning we heard creaking floorboards from the people upstairs.

It's located in a charming residential area on the east side of the town centre of Brighton. There were a number of these large-houses-turned-into-hotels on this street.

The location was right for us. Plenty of restaurants, pubs and shops nearby. It's walking distance from everything in Brighton for those willing to walk a bit. For those who aren't, the bus stop is nearby. The hotel is about 200 metres from the beach (and a very modern and affordable gym called, er, "the gym").

We enjoyed meeting and talking to Elaine -- hotelier / legal exec / paraglider / free spirit extraordinaire. She was a vibrant, accommodating hostess and she knows how to run a hotel.

I guess this place is around 2 or 3 stars, but I'm going to add one because we enjoyed it so much. We left it with a smile on our faces and the feeling of having had a great weekend.
