Come and stay in this cosy room in Hove overlooking the courtyard. It has a comfortable double bed so is okay for two people but the bed is up against the wall so only one bedside cabinet. You'll get freshly laundered sheets once a week and clean towels twice a week. Large bathroom with walk in shower which is virtually private to this room. If we're busy host might want to use the shower quickly during the day.
The room available is on the first floor of a lovely recently refurbished Victorian house in Poets Corner in Hove. The bedroom is south facing and overlooks the courtyard. There is a very comfortable double bed in this room and there is loads of wardrobe space and cupboard space and a small desk. You'll also get freshly laundered bed linen once a week and clean towels twice a week. We provide a hairdryer and iron and we also have a very fast wireless connection and a 32" TV with Sky Q.
We offer a breakfast of cereal, toast, jams, fruit juice, tea and coffee and this is included in the price and is served between 8am and 10am. There are also tea and coffee making facilities in the room.
There is a large modern bathroom with big walk in shower. The host might need to have a shower once a day if we're really busy but otherwise it's all yours...you can spread your stuff out in there.
You'll find loads of shops and cafes in walking distance from the house and some really good pubs offering great 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 in about 30 minutes. The bus at the end of the road will also take you out to the university.
You can get a train into London from Hove station and the journey takes about an hour.
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!
There is use of the kitchen for basic meals... we can provide a cupboard for food and some space in the fridge and freezer. Use of washing machine once a week is included.
Interaction with guests
As much as they'd like
Other things to note
I think it's good to be upfront about things so I need to say that I'm not really happy if my guests lie in bed all day, especially with the blackout blinds down and all the lights on and yes this does happen. If you're looking for somewhere to chill out as my kids say then this place is definitely not for you.
Please always make sure not to leave the front door open to keep the dog safe.

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.
