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....

Excellent location, single room at the top of the house. Very clean and lots of hot water. Wonderful breakfast. I stayed for 3 nights and I can't fault anything. I would definitely book here again. A gem!!!

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....

I stayed in Brighton for 2 nights with my friend. This hotel is a great choice! It is located in the city centre, exactly in front of the Brighton wheel and Brighton pier. The stuff was very kind and friendly. I have read somewhere that this hotel is quite noisy, but I do not agree. I have not heard anything,...

I can honestly say that this is the best B&B I have stayed in whilst in Brighton. The owner Chris and all of his staff are warm, friendly and helpful. The rooms are bright and clean and the breakfasts are wonderful. It is within walking distance of all the major attractions and is in the heart of bustling Kemptown. Book...

Picked this B&B due to the reviews on booking.com and was not let down whatsoever. Great location, walking distance from pier, wheel, sea life centre, Dome etc and not too far from the Lanes either. Had a great one night stay, thought it was a beautiful touch that the owner called us on the day to make sure we knew...

After reading the fab reviews of this B&B I can say that our stay there lived up to all our expectations and more! Why go to impersonal, standard hotels when you can be as comfortable as if you were in your own home with the added bonus of being treated to a trayful of extras including chocolates and a small...
