The Kelvin Guest House, Brighton

Great - if you are traveling light
Expectations were that a room in this quaint little district of Brighton would be very small. Really not enough room to open two suitcases. We would have given a star lower rating on the facility, but Patrick and the staff were friendly, helpful and above average in every way - excellent full breakfast in the morning. The annoyances did add up, but probably because we reserved late and got the last room on top floor, I think seven series of seven stairs. Shared bathroom is OK, but with six rooms over two floors? Sink in the bedrooms too tine to put a face over to brush teeth. But the breakers is that the lights are on a short timer, things go dark too often (after the loo or if you are following someone else up stairs and they pressed the button 60 seconds ago. I'd say safety hazard, should be on a motion sensor. Services totally balanced out the annoyances.. will send our petite friends.

Cozy place
Hosts are very friendly, room is a bit small yet cozy. Breakfast are great - freshly made. The only 2 things that not quite satisfying are that the mattress is too soft to me, and the noises made by the neighbourhood. Overall, the stay was great.

Friendly and sweet
Friendly and helpful staff, very convenient location for the lanes and the pier. Good breakfast. Rooms pretty small and 'double' bed not a real double, but clean. Fairly quiet street considering how close to city centre.
