Bannings at Number 14
Ranked #10 of 95 Brighton B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 May 2013

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.

Breakfast was very good... huge portions.
Owners could not be more helpful.
Not spotless, smaller and more dated than they look in pictures, bathrooms tiny.... can touch all sides with hands and no room to dry after a shower.
Beds are REALLY BIG and Really comfy

Room Tip: Top room is in the eves and a bit claustrophobic

Charming hosts and unique homely cosy feel at Bannings. Breakfast was ample as was the service and great food. Lovely room and bathroom. Clean, airy and tidy.

All the mod cons at at an affordable price and will definately like to re-visit if back in the area for work.

You can end your search right here! My partner and I struck it lucky by finding this lovely B&B and have returned every year for the past 3 years. We would never consider staying anywhere else when in Brighton. We have returned each year to spoil ourselves in the luxury of a clean and fully equipped room, serviced daily, with its (American) King Size extremely comfortable bed and full English breakfasts that are cooked to perfection every time! The hosts, Chris and Terry, are wonderful, helpful and friendly, always making us feel at home. The location is great too, with all you could ask for within easy walking distance. Book as early as possible, so as not to be disappointed! :)

Room Tip: Our favourite is room No. 2.

We had two nights at Number 14 and were very impressed. Provided you don't need any public lounge or bar areas, this B&B has everything you could want and more than you would expect. Our room was small but very thoughtfully furnished and equipped, and very comfortable. The breakfasts were excellent and the owners very welcoming. The location was ideal for us, and although a little distance from the Town centre, we (reasonably fit seniors) found it easily walkable to most central locations including the main station. Free Wi-Fi was a bonus.
