I stayed midweek for a single night in the middle of November. I had not been to this hotel before and all the communications prior to my stay were prompt and answered all my questions. The room was lovely with period original features and I had a very comfortable stay. Location was just off the seafront and an easy walk... More

Would recommend this lovely little b&b based on the hosts alone. Eric and David are welcoming and seem eager to accommodate any specific requests. Guest and the City is located close to the seafront and is easy to find. We enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely return in warmer months! Excellent choice for a little stay in Brighton.

We stayed on a very wet and windswept Saturday night in November but the weather didn't spoil our experience! From the point of booking months previously, both David and Eric were beyond helpful, answering emails regarding arrival, helping us call a cab to escape the rain on our way out and resolving the stressful issue of parking in Brighton.

We were breakfast guests at this stylish B&B - our friends from out of town stayed overnight and invited us (as local Brightonians) to breakfast. We had a party of 12 in their breakfast room - 8 adults, a couple of teenagers and an 11 and 7 year old. Nothing was too much for the unflappable David and Eric. Breakfast... More

We stayed at Guest & the City for one Saturday night in November 2016. Although it is clearly positioned as a B&B the accommodation is more like a small boutique hotel. The room we stayed in was small but no smaller than many central London hotels. The quality and decor was excellent and way better than we've seen in so-called... More

I stayed alone in the small double room, which worked very well for one person. Would actually recommend it for solo travellers or a close couple, as two friends could possibly drive each other mad in a small room with no chairs and little floor space. The room is clean and colourful, with a nice supply of coffee, tea and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Guest and the City is a boutique Guesthouse that reflects all that we love about Brighton. With seven private bedrooms, situated in the heart of Kemptown, minutes from the centre of Brighton, 30 seconds from the beach and opposite the famous Palace Pier, it’s the perfect location to explore Brighton for Business or pleasure. We want our guesthouse to reflect everything we like about staying in Brighton. Guest in the City therefore takes the best bits of a traditional B&B – a relaxed, friendly service, a central location and of course a top-notch breakfast with locally sourced ingredients – and puts them in modern, high-spec surroundings. The result is a boutique feel without luxury prices. To us, that’s what Brighton is all about – finding new things that surprise you and make you smile. ... more   less
