We stayed as a group of friends and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Meeting to collect the keys was easy, the location is superb, right in the middle of the lanes, restaurants, bars and clubs are no more than 2 minute walk away (slightly longer when you have heels on!) and the house was clean, comfortable and quirky.
We cooked for 8 of us in the small kitchen, note that there are two hobs and a microwave/grill/oven; there is also only one toilet in the bathroom which we didn't find a problem even thought there were 8 of us. There is a pub near by and we did get some noise but the ear plugs were supplied so this wasn't an issue.
What made our stay was the location; we were right in the middle of Brighton, we were able to explore the lanes, seafront, pier…….and we were able pop back when we liked. I would recommend others to stay here!
