Excellent stay. Came to chill out for a week with my other half. Brilliant service and gave us time and space if we didn’t want to rush out the room (for them to clean it) would definitely recommend and would visit again. Fantastic couple again too!!

Short romantic break
Lovely warm welcome. Spotlessly clean room. In great location for restaurants, bars, close to beach and 12 min walk to the Lanes.

Great stay at Colson House, lovely warm welcome by John. The hotel is in a great position, close to everything, but just a few steps away to make the environment quieter than on the main streets. We will definitely be back.

Amazing stay
Our stay was absolutely amazing with the most friendly and welcoming hosts. I was running the Brighton Half the next day and they were kind enough to offer an extended stay with a delayed checkout so I could come back and have a shower. We stayed in the lovely Audrey Hepburn room which was comfortable, quirky and clean. The hotel was really good value for money and in an excellent location. v highly recommended
