Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Kemptown - Kemptown Atelier

A gracious first floor loft space in the VERY centre of Brighton's Kemptown.

This studio apartment provides a gracious first floor loft space in the VERY centre of Brighton - just inside Kemptown, only a street away from the seaside, two minutes from the Brighton Pier, the Lanes, & the Pavilion.

Furnished in an eclectic retro style, wherever you look, you will lay your eyes upon something either playful or beautiful.

You have to have a sense of style as well as humour to enjoy this flat, but it provides everything you need for your visit to Brighton - full, albeit compact kitchen, double bed, shower room and ideal location.

About Laura Dunlap

Enough about me: A former musician, writer and now tourism expert, I have been renting Holiday Apartments for the past 10 years, but before that i owned a vegetarian organic hotel in Bath! And before that, a ranch resort in Northern California with little cabins and horses!

I have been around the world and love England.

Laura Dunlap purchased this apartment in 2012

Unique Studio Loft Apartment in Lively Kemptown
average rating of 4.428571 based on 7 reviews

We really enjoyed our stay in Studio Loft Apartment in Kemptown.

  • 4 of 5

The property was very comfortable providing all we needed for our four night stay in Brighton.

We were so close to all we had planned to see of interest including the Pavillion the Lanes and the seafront.

The property is quirky which added to our very enjoyable stay .

We did find it difficult to tune in the tv without a remote control or booklet to give us instructions. We had to press buttons on the side.

The grill pan in the oven had not been cleaned.

These are only minor but I thought may be helpful to you

We would certainly recommend your lovely apartment and it helped to make our stay in Brighton very special.

Thank you

Great apartment, although scaffolding and construction outside window

  • 4 of 5

the apartment inside was great, clean and tidy and furnished beautifully. the only problem was that there was scaffolding up on the building right outside the window which i was not told about before my arrival, and meant we had to have the curtains closed all the time. the noise was minimal for most of the weekend apart from 8am monday morning from which i was rudely awakened by loud hammering.

i would still definitely stay here again and would recommend to friends, as it was a lovely apartment and perfect distance from town.

Owner's Response: Oh, I am so sorry about the scaffolding and the noise. It went up after the cleaners had been there and no one informed the owners that it was going to happen! In the end, it was a good purpose, in that they were refurbishing the outside of the building, but what a shame that we could no have warned you! Thanks for being such a good sport about it! from Laura, Manager

a very clean apartment in an ideal situation.

  • 5 of 5

Bigger than expected. Very conveniently situated for bats and shops. No BBC channels on TV. Strange there are of forks and spoons but only two knives. We would happily stay in the flat again.

Unique quirky with all the bits you need!

  • 4 of 5

we expected a "quirky, unusual and unique" experience, and it suited us well...enough of a kitchen to do whatever, good oven, handy micro wave...and instant hot water too. would need an extra pan to do a dinner, but one pan and fry up or salad meals etc just fine. Shower was good and hot, easy to use..but as warned we did need to pay attention to the door, so we didnt accidently push it open and flood the floor. No probs. The party people smoking downstairs from the club sometimes left a mess......but someone obviously sweeps them up-may be a sand bucket might work? I'd also like a bolt on the flat door, just because i feel more secure that way, as communal entrance door felt a bit light-weight...but really, we had fun (got to like music thru night, as, pretty obviously, it is right in the centre of things) the sea was nearby, bed was comfy, loved bedding, fresh fragrant oils ever so slightly in the air, just right. Thanks so much-oh, and for communicating so brilliantly with me when i had questions, like is there an iron, hairdryer etc etc (there was!!) Thanks so much a I would definately love to come again and hope to soon. I can see why you like it!

Owner's Response: Thank you for this sweet and honest review. I just visited the flat after you left, Jo and saw that the pans had gone missing, so I picked up a couple - a small frying pan and a larger sauce pan. I can't do anything about bolting the door, because so many previous guests had trouble with the stronger locks, so we took them off. Luckily, no matter how wild and crazy the scene is there in Kemptown, there is very little crime and no one has ever tried anything funny on any of our guests! I hope you can return. Laura

Kemptown - the gayest part of Brighton! But where the Kemptown Atelier is located, although surrounded by nightlife, is closer than close to the sea and the famous Brighton Pier - as well as the beautiful Pavilion.
