Friendly reception, tasty breakfast and room neat and clean (though rather small). Bathroom a bit "rough around the edges" and a bit of noise outside at night. Can't blame the hotel for the latter and ear plugs are supplied! A parking permit for nearby streets is supplied by the hotel for £10 (24 hrs) and the location is a stone's...

We enjoyed our stay here. The staff were more than accommodating towards us with our 16month old. Room was nice size, bed super comfortable and very well presented. Bathroom was ok but floor became very slippery. Breakfast was great, hot, prompt and lots of choice. We had a little noise but was to be expected considering the location and never...

We stayed for two nights midweek in January 2015, so didnt experience the noise problems some reviewers report. This B&B is so clean and well-run, beautiful spacious room and delicious freshly cooked breakfast. The bed was very large and comfortable, soft towels, large ensuite and lovely bay sash window with a sideways view of the sea and pier. Lovely Italian...

We came to Brighton for NewYear, excellent B&B, fantastic spot close to the seafront. We stayed in the Hanover room with a king size bed which was very comfortable and clean, a welcome bottle of wine/water and coke in fridge. Breakfast was fantastic plenty of choice. There was a bit of noise but expected as it was New Years Eve....

This was booked yesterday for a stay last night. Within minutes of booking, Chris, the Proprietor was on the phone and asking if he could help in any way to better my experience at Kempfield House. Our room was admittedly very small, and at the top of the building, but, it was spotlessly clean and tidy and came with complimentary...

Excellent location in vibrant Kemptown but tucked down one of the quieter streets. Close to beach. Extremely friendly staff who went out of their way to greet and help visitors. Complementary wine, water, biscuits etc. are a nice touch. Vegetarian options at breakfast (including the yoghurt), which was plentiful. Pleasant spacious room. Very clean. I would certainly stay here again....
