First off all I'd like to start by praising the two young ladies who served us breakfast and serviced our rooms. They were not only polite they were very cheerful and couldn't be more helpful through out our stay. Breakfast was really nice and service was fast. We came down for breakfast at the same time as what seemed every...

I was overwhelmed with the service and overall experience! The room was beautiful , clean and well stocked with tea, coffee and biscuits. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. The breakfast was big, served hot and with a smile - a great start to my day. Brilliant and central location - will defiantly be returning again ! 5*

Firstly on arrival there was no sign of anyone, you have to call a mobile number and they will be there in a few minutes. I told Patrick I was on yellow lines, I was told by his partner a few days earlier that they would keep an eye out for me (which didn't happen) and when a space becomes...

Arrived here on a Friday afternoon at 2pm, as this is the check-in time. However, there was nobody to let us in and only a note left on the door saying that the owner had gone out with his number left. We rang & text the owner with no answer. If it wasn't for a guest leaving, we would have...

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the kelvin for a last minute anniversary break. We have stayed in other b&bs in the surrounding area but decided to go somewhere different and we was not disappointed!! We was welcomed by friendly, smiling staff who were very helpful with anything we needed. When we got to our room we was pleasantly surprised....

Room was "Superior Double or Twin En-Suite" but was tiny. Barely enough room to walk around the bed and insufficient for a bedside cabinet on both sides so 1 light only. 6′ King size double bed was in fact two singles pushed together. The room has partition walls (hollow) and we were kept awake at night and first thing by...

We will leave a fair review as we normally stay in places like Hilton ect. The rooms are an ok size - places to hang cloths and draws either side of the bed. A normal sized kettle with mugs ( instead of those tiny little cups ) with plenty of tea bags/coffee & milk ect. Room/ bathroom was really clean...

The staff at the hotel are lovely and Patrick welcomes you and makes you feel comfortable straight away. The location is great and I wish the weather had been nicer to enjoy all that Brighton has to offer. The rooms are basic but clean. My only complaint is the mattress was not great quality and did leave me with a...

Excellent location close to everything you could want for a weekend away. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Patrick greeted us when we arrived and made sure that had everything we required for our stay including parking permit. We felt comfortable during the whole stay, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was tasty and filling served by smiling staff.

When planning a get together for friends and looking for somewhere to stay, I chose the Kelvin totally by chance. We were not disappointed and have all agreed we would choose again. The location is perfect, the welcome, friendliness and helpfulness was most appreciated and the breakfast was great. The room was excellent in terms of comfort and cleanliness.
