There’s no taxi stop in front so I told my Uber to maybe park in back. I called Kipps & Julio didn’t just come greet me but helped me with our huge bags to their top floor! Our whole stay was filled with similar courtesies. We stayed a week in rooms 7-8 & I extended for a

I arrived in the afternoon after a long train ride in July, when Brighton is mecca for tourists and students looking for a break and parking is scarce. The staff was welcoming, and the place was clean and airy. There is a common area and lovely porch with tables to eat or if you

Many thanks for your feedback, glad you had a great experience at Kipps and that you enjoyed yourself, we work very hard to keep our guests comfortable and the place clean. We offer parking permits that cost £15.00 valid for 24 hours, which is sold to us by the council, we are in the center of Brighton so parking will be expensive I am afraid. hope to see you again

Kipps is an excellent choice if you are looking for a cheap place to stay in the centre of Brighton. My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights with our 12 year old son in one of the private rooms. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The place was very clean with lots of

Been travelling for 3 months and happy to end my time here before heading home. Beds are comfy, nice kitchen to cook in and loved relaxing on the back patio for breaky. It is an older row house but I loved it for that. Very charming and you can see the efforts made to upkeep it.

I’ve been staying in London and decided to take a trip to Brighton for the day and possibly night. After a long and tiring day of exploring the city, I decided to check out kipps to see if it was worth staying the night, since I happened to be nearby and was honestly too tired

Thanks for your feedback, which you and I know it is not true about how you described the place, you came in checked into the room, you told me when you came down that you sat on the bed and not the chair, I explained to you that I cannot refund you as I cannot resell the room since you checked in as we will need to change all sheets, towels and clean the shower regardless you used it or not. You threatened me with a bad review on TripAdvisor, which you successfully done, but I will leave it up the the potential guests to make up their minds and see through what you have written with only one intention which is to harem our successful business as you were very angry that we did not refund you the payment. I don't think you would have liked it if when you checked in we told you that someone else had been in your room but they did not really use anything therefore we did not clean it after them, how would you have felt.

"Lots of stairs, no elevator. Though our 3rd flr room faced the main road, the night was very quiet, even with our window open."
