We had a great time in Brighton staying in Black Lion Lane. The rooms were good, the beds clean and we had everything we needed at hand. But I would take a more practical approach. Have sofas that you can actually stand up from, have chairs so everybody can sit down together (Ikea has very cheap folding chairs), have a shelf in the shower for your soap, a real coffee table so your glasses don't keep falling over. And the place is noisy, really loud music and loud people passing during the night. But the location is superb, just out the door and you are in the middle of the enchanting lanes of Brighton, the sights, the beach, the restaurants and shops are just by your door. So all in all we had a wonderful time in Brighton and recommend staying in Black Lion Lane.
