We haven't stayed in a B&B for years but needs must and all that! However I have to say we were pleasantly surprised - these boys could certainly teach some of the big hotel chains a thing or two! We booked 2 nights after reading the reviews online - even booking was a pleasant experience. In easy walking distance of the train station - about 10/15 minutes - and a view of the sea from the front door so perfect location. The day we arrived the weather was a bit miserable but the house was as warm as the welcome. We chose Room 3 from the pictures on the website - yes it was compact but it had everything we needed. The bed was incredibly comfortable and I particularly liked the fact bottled water was included on the refreshment tray. The room was at the back of the house so was really quiet - we heard a little bit of the noise on the Friday night I presume from the pub a little way down the road but it didn't keep us awake. The bathroom had a huge shower and everything was spotlessly clean. The bathroom door stuck a bit - sorry forgot to mention at the time guys! but just added to the character of the room. Breakfast was huge - vegetarian option available for us which was great. We managed the full english the first morning but had to downsize the next after a big meal the night before but it still set us up for the day - certainly didn't need lunch! If I was going to be really picky the only negative I can find is that because the downstairs is almost open plan the entrance does hold the cooking smells of the kitchen which is a bit off putting when you first arrive but you soon get used to it and it just feels homely. We had a great couple of days in Brighton and if we were ever to come back would definitely stay again and have already recommended it to friends and family
