“Nice place, great Location but with some issues”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The apartment is modern and appealing inside and the location is great for the beach, pier, Kemptown and The Lanes – unfortunately we felt a few things let the place down a bit, including the tardiness of response from the landlord regarding one issue.

Upon arrival we found the apartment quite hard to find, buried in the basement down a rather long and ugly looking corridor. The free parking space provided was located around 15-20 minutes away from the flat and there was no easy place to unload luggage outside.

Once inside the flat we thought the lounge/dining area was impressive and the place seemed compact but comfy and very clean. The amenities on offer were good and for the price we were happy with our accommodation.

However, a few issues did spoil things slightly.

1) When we arrived we were looking forward to hooking up to the free wifi that was advertised so we could explore restaurants, trips, sites and bars online and get to know our surroundings. The network name given in the instructions was not available and the only connection we could make which appeared to be the same as the router in the lounge did not work when you tried to go online. We contacted the landlord of the property about this but received no response from him until the next day by which time it was too late – as it stood, it wasn’t particularly helpful anyway as all he did was reiterate what was in the instructions. It would have been good if the owner had checked to see if his wifi was working before our arrival and that the instructions tallied up with the reality.

2) The sofa-bed in the lounge would not unfold properly to make the bed, and one of us was forced to sleep on it as a sofa.

3) The outdoor patio area was tiny and wet from a waste water outlet pipe on the exterior wall.

4) The patio table had a badly broken leg and

5) As stated above, unloading the car was difficult and parking was a long way from the apartment

That said, we found the apartment to be pleasant to spend time in and thought the kitchen facilities were more than adequate. The place was clean, well furnished and beds comfy with lots of good bedding and pillows provided. If issues 1-4 were resolved we would happily stay here again; it seems a shame that the parking spot outside the property could not be utilised by guests but if you are travelling light and not expecting to use the car that often during your stay, it shouldn’t hamper your holiday too much.

“Great location and apartment size”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Was really impressed with location, right on the seafront and not far at all from the pier!
The apartment was in the basement but still had good light and patio area. Was very spacious too!

“Perfect home for three weeks exploring south and southeastern England”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The apartment was perfect for us, perfectly situated along miles of beachfront, minutes from bars, restaurants, shopping, buses and auto routes out of the city. The car park is a bIt further then we expected but this turned Into a benefit as every time we came back into the city, we were able to purchase fresh fish and vegetables on our walk from the car park to the apartment.

The apartment is roomy, comfortable and very nicely furnished

Brighton Rocks Bar and Kitchen, just over a block away became, our favorite place for a drink and a bite!

“won't stay there again”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I don't think the owner will be surprised by my review, in fact he was probably expecting it earlier on. I booked in January for renting last week of April. Even so the owner "forgot" to inform me that the parking space was no longer next door but (according to him) a 15 min. walk away. Well I must congratulate him on his olympic form but for us, couple in their sixties & 3 grandchildren, it took us half an hour at the end of the day walking back up Kemptown after parking. I admit that when he informed me 2 days before our stay & after I had copiously told him what I thought, he did offer to totally refund me, but of course by that time I couldn't find anywhere else, + we had ferry bookings from France & hotel rooms booked in Calais.
When we arrived we found the property shabby, rusty railing with the paint peeling off, 2 rusty bikes on the ground in the forecourt. The flat not very clean, carpet, oven etc.
We couldn't unfold the sofabed completely so the children had to sleep on the mattres on the floor, & and the bedclothes for the sofabed were not clean & smelled musty. There was a leak behind the washbasin in the bathroom. The air-extractor above the hob didn't work, meaning that the alarm went off once after doing some cooking. No instructions as to how to put the heating on. The wifi didn't work (too weak) so we had to buy a smartphone to use as a rooter for the internet. To top it all, even the new smartphone didn't work for phoning in the flat, so we had to go outside in order phone family etc.
In all a great disappointment. When I read the reviews my mind boggles, either these people don't have the same standards as me or they don't try to use the different "amenities" available. The rent is cheap for Brighton but I don't think it's worth the economy. In all fairness, last but not least, the owner seems a nice chap.

“Nice, especially for the proximity to beach and town”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed at this property over the bank holiday weekend.
The entrance to the block is a little run-down, so we didn't have the best impression upon arrival.
I also have a personal dislike for carpets, especially in a holiday rental accommodation, and this was the one thing I disliked the most as it was a little grubby.
All in all, though, I would say the flat is tidy and quite generous in size.
The best thing about it is that it's very close to the pier and only a short walk from the town, so from that point of view definitely worth its price.

“Not Very Happy!”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Boiler leaking water, damp on bedroom wall and hallway wall near bedroom door, apartment wasn't hoovered and has stais in places on it, bath wasn't clean. Wall paper in lounge coming off wall at top, cracks on ceilings, paint chipped on walls in places, cob webs on bedroom ceiling. Absolutely disgusting. I wasn't doing an inspection but this was what was visible. Not very impressed and would not recommend.

Management Response
9 Apr 2014
Thank you for your feedback. Sadly you were unable to indentify most of these problems at the short time you were at the property. The leaking boiler was and has been addressed as teething problems given it is brand new. Your only complaint was that the property hadn't met your expectations. The apartment for your stay was priced at £260 for 2 guests for a week (less than £19 per person per night). Hardly top end accommodation prices, that said the apartment is clean and in good repair. I regret you did not give me chance to address your concerns at the time.
