The bed was very comfortable, room was very clean and tidy. The guest house is also in a good location, very close to the beach and the pier. The owners, Scott and Helen gave us a very warm and friendly welcome. Overall we very much enjoyed our stay.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Aquarium, and I must say how much we enjoyed our stay there. Located in charming kemp town, Brighton just a short walk away from everything, such as the pier, the winter gardens and various brilliant bars and restaurants. The guesthouse is a wonderful townhouse and you feel like your staying...

The room was very clean and immaculate with lovely decor. It is located very central to shops and restaurants and a 5 min walk to the actual town. It was perfect for me on a girls weekend as nightlife was very close. Scott and Helen were very nice and welcoming when checking in and out. It was nice knowing if...
