Spent two night at the Aquarium in November. Great location, St James Street, cafes, bar, pier and shopping all within easy reach. Room was excellent. Scott and Helen very welcoming. Highly recommended.

Located in charming kemp town, Brighton just a short walk away from everything, such as the pier, the winter gardens and various brilliant bars and restaurants. The guesthouse is a wonderful townhouse and you feel like your staying... More
