The Cavalaire

  • Boutique B&B
Expect great service at The Cavalaire in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere –  and a breakfast that is second to none.

Brilliantly run by its friendly, down-to-earth owners Derek Jermey and Garry Clarke, The Cavalaire manages the rare feat of being both stylish and refreshingly unpretentious – a bit like Brighton itself in fact! Situated in the heart of the funky Kemptown district, its ten rooms vary a lot in size, but all are comfortable and contemporary, with good, recently refurbished bathrooms kitted out with powerful showers and good quality toiletries, tea and coffee-making facilities with real milk and biscuits – plus flatscreen Freeview TVs and digital radios. And even if you don’t treat yourself to one of the four-posters, you’ll find your bed made with high-end linen and loaded with colourful cushions. The breakfast, too, served in the bright and tasteful dining room, is first-class, with lots of locally sourced ingredients, pancakes as an option, as well as a fab veggie alternative, and good coffee. Basically, though, there's no secret to the Cavalaire's success, which is mostly down to Derek, and Garry, owners prepared to go the extra mile for their guests and whose eye for detail is impeccable.
