Hobbity Weekend B & B - Lux Double + Private Shower room, Hove

Bedrooms 1
Space 450 sq ft
Property type bungalow


About the property

Quirky Luxury, Scandihobbitychic

Sleeping up to six guests, our large bungalow is like a grand hobbit house really. We have three guest rooms available for B&B at weekends, each sleeping two and bookable individually:

This room has a new double bed, scandi drawers and wardrobe, full length mirror and shelves. Solid wooden floors, bedside matching drawers and bed side light make for a comfortable room for a couple. Access is directly off the entrance hall as is the private shower room with WC (bath and hand towels provided).

We also offer a double room with a big round bed and en-suite, and a twin bedroom with private bathroom. These are listed separately on this site too. You can book all of them together through a fourth listing. Find them all easily by searching B&B Hove, UK on HomeAway.

Please note that this is also our home; we have our own living space but we're on hand to point you to all the best places, transport and restaurants. We'll also provide you with a simple but beautiful breakfast - it's included! There's a choice of cereals or porridge, toast, croissants and jams, choice of a dozen teas and real coffee, and the best orange juice, all served at a time that suits you (but before 10.30am!).

Please note that the boutique character of the space makes it better suited to adults. Earliest check in is 2pm and check out by 11am.

Our neighbourhood is Hove Park. It's residential but only a mile from the sea front and not much further from the Brighton city centre, Hove is only half a mile. We're on several bus routes and very near all the main routes into and out of town. We have plenty of free parking on the street and we're walking distance from hove station.

Our guests love the convenience of the location, the quirkiness of the house and the peaceful surroundings. You can make your own hot drinks and we offer a dozen varieties of tea and coffee, all for free. You can store your cold drinks in the fridge.

We love to chat to guests to make them feel at home but you have your privacy with your own funky lounge as well as your room.

You'll have a key to come and go as you please and can access the gardens which are all around our detached property. We only have a few rules: We respect others' privacy and bed times and come and go quietly after 10.30pm. We leave the kitchen as we find it - pristine! Guests may make hot drinks and use the fridge but cooking is not permitted. Landline phones are not for the use of guests. Please, no outdoor shoes to be worn in the house. Groups should note that we don't allow partying or loud music even if you've booked all three rooms, sorry! Nor do we accept visitors who are not staying (unless by prior arrangement) or pets, and we're a smoke free zone.

We have free broadband wi-fi and each room is equipped with a guide to the area and a bus timetable. We also offer an indie guide to hundreds of local small businesses and literature pointing you to local delights.

About Geoff

Our children have flown the nest and now we have this super, big house all to ourselves. We've three spare bedrooms and bathrooms so it makes sense for them to earn their keep! So we do B&B at weekends only - and we've been thrilled at the enthusiastic response from our guests. We've been active for more than two years now and have welcomed guests from literally all over the world.

Geoff purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why Geoff chose Hove

Our eccentric home appeals for its hobbity exterior and its surprisingly chic and spacious interior - Tardis like, to Dr Who fans. Every room has its own bathroom, all are different in character, one even has a big round bed.

What makes this bungalow unique

Character, peace, quiet and parking for free but only a mile from the sea and the sights of the city centre and not much further to the south downs and the Sussex countryside. Very few B&Bs can match our quirky eclectic mix of luxury and character. As this is our home our guests receive a sense of genuine hospitality.

Excellent Overnight Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the quality of the B&B: also the friendliness of the owners, their efficiency and the value for money. The house is close to the seafront and activities but in a quiet road and we had no trouble parking outside the property. Breakfast contained many choices and was fresh and very nice. We hope to stay there again in the future. Thank you both for a lovely stay.

Large Hobbit House

I saw the pictures on the website and fell in love. I was not disappointed. The hosts could not have done any more to make me feel welcome. My room was lovely clean and airy. I was even driven to the station at the end of my stay. Thank you Geoff & Lesley

Absolutely lovely place to stay! Staying for Brightons Vegfest, Geoff and Leslie were brilliant hosts, even going out of their way to purchase vegan milk for us! The Hobbit House was very clean and the bed very comfy, plus there was a variety of breakfast options, cereals, croissants etc. Highly recommend this B&B and it will definitely be the first place we look to book the next time we are in the area.

Lovely weekend awa!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I were made to feel very welcome in Geoff and Lesley's beautiful home.

The room was lovely, and the breakfast was just what we both needed.

We couldn't have asked for anything more. We were made to feel like we were staying with friends.

Would recomend highly and definitely would stay again.
