About the Area
We live in Brighton which is located on the south east coast of England. Brighton is famous for tourists and foreign students that come here to learn/improve their English language and do some sightseeing. It has probably the nicest weather in England and is only a 50 minute train journey from London. The area of Brighton we live in is called Hove. It is the quieter part of Brighton next to the countryside. There is a park and a small shopping area a few minutes walk from our home. We live just a 30 minute bus ride away from central Brighton and about a 20 minute ride from the beach. The bus runs from directly outside our home every 5 minutes and are numbers 5,5A & 5B.

Lee and Sue are excellent hosts. They are both very friendly and professional. From the time that I arrived they made me feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The room was very comfortable and had all the facilities that I required. I would like to say a big thank you for going the extra mile. I have no hesitation in recommending Lee and Sue and anyone that stays in the future I am sure would feel exactly the same. Will most definitely book again.

I spent one week at Lee & Sue' s house and it was a fantastic experience! They are one of the best people you can find in Brighton! The house is really nice and cozy, it's quite far from the center but it's well connected with the buses and moreover, the bus stop it's just in front of the house! I'd like to thank again Lee and Sue for their kindness, help and support. Goodbye :)
