Stayed here for one night and it could not have been better. Nice, clean room, comfy bed, nice shower! Very central location so easy to walk to most places in Brighton! Hosts were lovely, very attentive and friendly, and made us feel very welcome! They make a really good home cooked breakfast in the morning too! Will definitely stay again!

Easily one of the best places we've stayed in Brighton. David and Eric are terrific hosts, our room (#4) was quite small but cleverly designed to make best use of the space and very comfortable. Excellent breakfast too. I am sure we will be back.

After staying one night in the best location possible for access to all attractions transport hubs and entertainment - we loved it so much we asked if we could stay another night.

I have nothing negative to say. Myself, my husband and friends were taking part in the Brighton Half Marathon and wanted to be near the start. The location was ideal and from there it only got better. From beginning to end David and Eric made our stay so special. The B & B itself is decorated beautifully and there is...

Came here years ago when I was a single man, back again mid Feb '17 for my wedding night! I came back largely for the customer service, which is impeccable.

Second visit here, and the hotel is as gorgeous as ever, rooms are well thought out and equipped and the location is perfect for heading into town, very close. The best part is the guys who run the place, friendly and accommodating, they really care about every detail and making sure we have a good stay. That service is why...

Not a big hotel just a B & B but self assured in its own right. The owner was service personified from the moment we arrived and jumped in our car with a 24 hour parking permit and guided us to his secret stash of parking spaces a few minutes walk away.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Guest and the City is a boutique Guesthouse that reflects all that we love about Brighton. With seven private bedrooms, situated in the heart of Kemptown, minutes from the centre of Brighton, 30 seconds from the beach and opposite the famous Palace Pier, it’s the perfect location to explore Brighton for Business or pleasure. We want our guesthouse to reflect everything we like about staying in Brighton. Guest in the City therefore takes the best bits of a traditional B&B – a relaxed, friendly service, a central location and of course a top-notch breakfast with locally sourced ingredients – and puts them in modern, high-spec surroundings. The result is a boutique feel without luxury prices. To us, that’s what Brighton is all about – finding new things that surprise you and make you smile. ... more   less
