This was our fourth visit in as many years to Bannings and we've booked again for next year. Chris and Terry run an excellent guesthouse that is unbeatable. They are wonderful welcoming hosts and we always enjoy our stay. And we're not alone: others who review this B&B say the same. So things you need to know:
Stylish bedrooms with big comfy beds for a good night's sleep
Nice en suite shower rooms
Clean as clean can be!
Great breakfasts - a Chris and Terry special will set you up all day. There is plenty of choice including fruit teas, full English, yoghurts, lemon curd, all sorts - and there are lovely big glasses for fruit juice: no rationing here.
The rooms have tea and coffee, with large cups, bottled water, cut-glass glasses, hairdryers, iron, ironing board: everything you need. A nice touch is that there is a fridge in the dining room where you can help yourself to more bottled water etc.
Parking: well, it's as good as Brighton gets. Chris and Terry have parking permits but parking is free between 8pm and 9am. Sometimes you need to park a few minutes walk away, but there are parking spaces available within a few mins and in Brighton, that's pretty good. Bannings is just round the corner from clubs and a wide range of restaurants so you'll be spoilt for choice and even though it's so close, the B&B is very quiet for a good night's sleep. The beach is about a two minute walk.
What really makes this B&B good are the hosts: I've found that good B&Bs have owners who are friendly, helpful and want you to have a good time. This is so true for Bannings. Stay here: you won't be disappointed.
Sight flaw in Trip Advisor Website: I can't unstick the swimming pool rating which I've put as excellent - there is no swimming pool.
