Very welcoming, room immaculate and breakfast amazing! Julie and Melina were very helpful, offering a map of the area and advice on places to go etc. We were attending a gig so didn't have a chance to explore much but we will definitely be visiting again very soon. You can purchase a 24hour parking permit from one of the owners...

I stayed here with a friend in November 2016 and had a wonderful time. It’s in a great location- close to the seafront and only a 15 minute walk to the train station. The room was bright and clean and there were lots of little touches that we liked, especially the light up mirror in the bathroom! We also really...

Stayed at Cowards for a last minute New Years Eve stop over. Owners were very welcoming and friendly. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The location is fantastic as just a minutes walk to the seafront, shops, bars and restaurants. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious served in the attractive and airy breakfast room. All in all a great little...

I can’t imagine staying anywhere else in Brighton. Just a really good place to stay. This was my second time at Cowards, its everything I hope for; clean, everything’s working, affordable, and a breakfast made by somebody who obviously cares about the food leaving the kitchen (thanks Melina for the consistently excellent breakfast). But what’s really pleasing about Cowards are...

I stayed here for two nights with a couple of friends as we were competing in the Brighton and Hove Triathlon and in summary I cannot recommend this place enough!! The guest house is located a short 10 minute walk from the pier and is around the corner from a shopping parade with local restaurants/cafes/pubs and shops, so it is...

I stayed at this guest house for two nights when I was in Brighton for a conference at the Brighton Centre. It is in a good location in the Kemptown area, about 20 minutes walk from the train station, 15 minutes from the Brighton Centre and about 5 minutes to the seafront. One of the hosts greeted me when I...

Would definitely stay again. My partner, Kath and I, were visiting Brighton for the August Bank Holiday Mod Weekender and were made very welcome by Julie and Melina ( - and Dusty, the dog!). Nice big room, spotlessly keen and a great breakfast to boot! Complimentary biscuits and bottles of water too. In a good location, close to amenities.

The proprietors, Julie and Melina were warm and welcoming and as helpful as they could be. The room was lovely and had everything we needed. In the morning we had a lovely full English breakfast. The guesthouse is in a good location, a couple of hundred metres from the seafront but also close to the racecourse. Even before you get...
