Certainly out of the ordinary, but in a good way!
A posh guest house this certainly isn't, more shabby chic and slightly hippy, but it was so much fun to stay there. Arriving to find a sign on the front door saying "In the sea", followed by the owner/landlady dressed in a towelling beachrobe waving at me from across the road, was an indication of the experience to come. The Marina is right on the seafront and I was able to park outside as I was only staying the one night, and leaving before 11am (other guests were issued with a permit). The room was basic but functional, clean and tidy, as were the shared bathroom and toilet. My only slight concern was the lack of privacy. The door to my room had frosted safety glass panels, which you could obviously see through when the light was on, and my window faced directly into the next door guest house - I could pull the blind down at night, no problem, but being a roller blind if I pulled it down in daylight then it shut out all the light. Breakfast was a joy - the food was delicious and plentiful, and the guests sat at old school desks, looking out at the sea, and swapping travel stories etc with each other. Once we had all been served, the owner/landlady came and sat and joined our lively chat and I found it really hard to tear myself away to get ready to leave. Certainly a different experience to what I am normally used to, but one that was really enjoyable and will be remembered fondly.

Disappointed
The guesthouse was very clean and quirky with a lot of interesting items of decor.
Our room was quite small, but adequate and clean. However the on suite was very small, you could wash your hands while standing in the bedroom! There was no ventilation and when inside, it was like being in a box.
The breakfast was very basic continental, cereal, toast and croissants. On the whole, the stay was not worth the price charged.

Superb stay in Worthing at the Marina Guest House
We stayed at the Marina Guest House on a business trip on a busy Saturday on the bank holiday Brighton Festival Weekend. The guest house is very easy to find, with parking right outside (guest parking permits are issued which is very helpful). The bus stop with the 700 Service to Brighton (runs every 10-15 mins and overnight) is literally outside the door and is £7.50 return which is A LOT cheaper than parking in Brighton itself. There is also a garage just up the road which is convenient. The room had everything we needed - nothing flashy - but clean, a friendly host and a great breakfast. I intend to return with my other half for a long weekend very soon. Worthing was very pretty and a lot quieter than Brighton - I'd recommend it for families to avoid the main hustle and bustle. Very pleased - thank you! :-)

A very nice attractive and accomodating lady that runs the place. The guest house is in tip top condition and it is clear that she takes a huge amount of pride in the place.
I would defiantly stay again

I would definitely recommend this traditional, cosy seafront Guest House
Very friendly, good value B&B. close to town and right opposite seafront. Brilliant view from dining room. Room 2 was adequate for my 1 night stay, though probably the smallest room in Guest house? You can see through to the clean kitchen. Breakfast good value - sausages could be upgraded! I would definitely stay here again, and in room 2 for a max 2/3 day short stay. Any longer and I would ask for a bigger room. Though room 2 had a nice little ensuite, with plenty of nice big bath towels. Landlady very friendly. In summary, excellent value.
