About this listing
Lovely room with modern en suite shower room. Super comfortable double bed and freshly laundered sheets once a week. Walking distance to the beach, shops and bars plus free super fast wifi. There's also a 32 inch TV and a table and chairs to eat or work at.
The en suite room available is on the first floor of a lovely refurbished Victorian house in Poets Corner in Hove. There is a double bed in this room for which you'll get freshly laundered cotton bed linen once a week. There is plenty of wardrobe space, a table and chairs and a 32 inch TV.
We have a very fast wireless connection which you are welcome to use, we provide all your towels and there's a hair dryer and iron too so that should save some room in your suitcase.
We offer a breakfast of toast, cereal, juice, tea and coffee with homemade jam from the local farm. This is included in the price and is served between 8am and 10am. There are also tea and coffee making facilities in the room.
You'll find lots of shops, bars and cafes within walking distance from the house and some really good pubs offering great reasonably priced food. We are about seven minutes walk down to the beach and a bus from the end of the road takes you into central Brighton in ten minutes and stops right in the middle of the Lanes. If you're feeling energetic you can walk along the seafront into central Brighton and the Lanes in about 30 minutes. You'll pass the i360 our brand new attraction on the way. There are also regular buses going up to the South Downs, Devil's Dyke and to Seven Sisters.
You can get a train into London from Hove station and the journey takes about an hour. If you bring your car we can give you a day permit for £3.00 which is what we have to pay for them.
We have a very friendly dog so you'll need to like animals. He won't come into your room unless you leave the door open in which case you may come home to find him asleep on your bed!
We love having guests to stay so look forward to hearing from you and meeting you. Gatwick is our nearest airport and is only half hour away.
There is no use of the kitchen unless you are staying for one week or more and is specifically requested.
Interaction with guests
As much or as little as they'd like
We have lots of local pubs which serve good food and it's only a short walk to the beach and a short bus ride to the South Downs.
There is a choice of buses at the end of the road which will take you into central Brighton and the very famous Lanes in about ten minutes. We also have a wonderful choice of cafes and restaurants within walking distance right here in Hove.
Other things to note
This is a difficult one but has to be said. I'm not really happy if my guests lie in bed until noon and then want their breakfast when I'm about to have lunch.
Please don't leave the front gate or the front door open for the safety of the dog.
Not suitable if you're planning to lie in bed all day and expect breakfast at lunchtime

I retired down to Hove having lived in London for most of my life. I love walking over the downs with the dog and along the seafront, also with the dog. In the summer we both go in the sea for a dip but neither of us much like swimming. I'm very keen on photography and I love gardening though I only have a small courtyard garden here in Hove. I usually have one of my two grown up God children staying with me which I love.
