This Guest House needs modernizing, there's no denying it, however in terms of what I needed it ticked all the boxes. I went to Brighton for work purposes and needed a low cost room, which is what I got. The staff were very friendly. No pretenses here. The breakfast was good, but there are so many places to eat and...

Plus points: It's close to the centre, the staff we met were helpful in finding free parking. But that's about it. This is somewhere that we definitely wouldn't be going back to. Perhaps the glowing reviews have been given a special room somewhere in the building; but I saw nothing that would convince me that even bearing in mind the...

Thankfully we only stayed for 1 night...as it was a reasonable price we didn't mind the cramped room, although the furnishings were very outdated. However when we started to settle in we noticed how dirty everything was, there was ALOT of dust and we were not keen on unpacking our stuff and placing it on any of the surfaces. Then...

The rooms are quite crummy and in desperate need of a more modern styling. Our room looked like coming to someone´s old summer cottage where you have put the old stuff you don´t want to use at home. The bath room was very small and completely lacking comfort.The view to the sea and Brighton pier was good, the location is...

The location of this hotel is so convenient for the visitor to Brighton and within walking distance for most visitors. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and the rooms very comfortable and clean. Early breakfast was provided without any problem and directions to parking and hospital clearly given. Would have no hesitation in return visit to this convenient and...

It's just a 5 minute walking from the Royal Pavillion. We just spent 40 Pounds for a wonderfould double-room, with a romantic sea viewing. From 8 to 9 am, you can taste a very good hand made English breakfast. Oweners are lovely! We'll absolutely get back here!

I have now stayed at AHH quite a few times over the last 18 months. I have always found a very warm welcome and friendly welcome from the owners. The rooms I have been allocated and are always clean and tidy. Nothing seems too much trouble for the owners to assist. Breakfast is freshly cooked and ample really tasty bacon!...

I think the rating someone would give this hotel depends on the room you stay in. I stayed at this hotel (guest house?) with my father, who is 80 years old. He was in a double room, with a large double bed made up of two single beds pushed together, and another bed in the room, together with 2 chairs,...

We are seasoned travellers and were not put off by the cramped, cold room but an hour after taking it people occupied the next door room. We were disturbed to be able to hear their conversation, conducted at normal volume. The reason for this was a doorway, connecting the two rooms, which was filled simply with a single layer of...
