Wonderful - Rating 5/5

The host Malcolm greeting was so lovely I immediately felt welcomed. He was so accommodating allowing me to drop off my luggage early and in my Rushing still managed to gently ask me important questions.Ensuite room was clean &spacious. The towels was of good quality and felt brand new. loved cute touches like a sweet on my bed. Bed was comfortable and I slept extremely well. Breakfast was fantastic,I especially loved the special juice. My daughter joined me on my second night and regret staying in a hotel before joining me saying she felt robbed after seeing my room.Malcolm was a fantastic host very delightful.Would 100% stay at No1 The Laurels again very comfortable &peaceful home away from home.

I absolutely recommend staying at No1 The Laurels! - Rating 5/5

I had the pleasure of staying at the Laurels for 5 days and got to sleep in three of the rooms (through my own busy schedule and absolutely no fault of the host!).While having to add/modify my booking Malcolm was perfect - making the necessary adjustments for me with zero stress.Having had a tour of the b&b, allow me to recollect my observations on each room:The double bedroom is gorgeous, with a lovely sized bath (which was extremely enjoyable in the quiet, relaxing location that the Laurels enjoys!). The room is more than ample for a couple, although I had the pleasure of staying in it alone (and starfishing in bed...!).The single room is lovely, smaller but still perfectly comfortable. The bathroom is on the oppostite side of the hallway, which is the only minor inconvienience - but Malcolm very thoughtfully provides a towelling robe for any trips you need to take back and forth!The double-single room was again lovely, the bathroom is en-suite and there was more than enough room for my sister and I to share this room (both of us being moderately sized people!).Generally speaking:All of the rooms are beautifully presented, clean and have an ample stock of shortbread biscuits and hot chocolate!Coming from a chaotic home, this was an amazing opportunity for me to catch up on my sleep - the location is very quiet and peaceful. You're also within a stone's throw of the small village highstreet which provides several pubs and other amenities.The breakfast is absolutely amazing, Malcolm is an attentive and kind host who had memorised my preferences by the second day of my stay!The WiFi works perfectly and there is ample space to store bags and clothing in each room.Essentially this b&b feels like a home away from home, I couldn't recommend the Laurels B&B more if you're visiting the area!Thank you Malcolm!

Just right for a weekend break to visit local friends - Rating 4/5

Friendly welcome. Clean and comfortable room. Substantial breakfast


Thanks for your comments. I\'m glad that you enjoyed your week-end visiting your friends in Henfield and staying at No1 The Laurels. The weather was mostly kind to you which made the open village gardens that much more appealing. It was good to chat and about Matlock etc. and I always enjoy it when guests get chatting with each other and often confirm that it is a small world!

My stay at No1 The Laurels - Rating 5/5

I stayed at No1 The Laurels with my parents the night before my wedding and we couldn't have chosen a better place. The B&B is in a quiet cul-de-sac so we were able to have a peaceful sleep. The rooms are very comfortable, spacious and well furnished and it felt homely. Malcolm was a very accommodating host, especially with my photographer and hair &makeup lady arriving during the following morning to get me ready. We very much enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend it to anyone. Thanks very much Malcolm!


Thank you Helen. It is always rather special to host a bride and see the wedding party set off for the ceremony. It was a pleasure to meet you and your lovely family right down to 2 week old nephew! The sun came out for a beautiful bride and made me smile. Good luck-always.

A Perfect Stay at No. 1 The Laurels - Rating 5/5

Malcolm Harrington the proprietor of No. 1 The Laurels, Henfield, proved to be the perfect host. The room was clean, comfortable and well-equipped and the breakfast was excellent. If anyone was considering a visit to the attractive village of Henfield, I would unreservedly recommend a stay at No. 1, The Laurels.

I would recommend this B+B. It is situated not far from the village centre (road works permitting). The rooms are nice. The Host is helpful and friendly and prepares a nice breakfast. When I was there, it was Easter and it was a nice touch to be given an easter egg and to be offered a hot cross bun.


Thank you so much for taking the time to say such nice things. I do try my best to provide a comfortable stay. Very few people took me up on the Hot Cross Bun so I ate rather too many!!!

Avril,-that is very kind of you. It was fortunate that the room was all ready and I was running on time--sometimes the day evaporates and I am left chasing my tail and might be a bit flustered if guests catch me out! I do try to provide a relatively calm, comfortable home from home type stay and it is great to be rewarded by such comments and to know that all is well. Pleased that you want to come again.

The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was well appointed. Super clean and what a joy to have loads of beverages in my room, lots of biscuits and a kit Kat lol. Little touches were wonderful from the sweet on my pillow to the fresh flowers in my room. Breakfast was lovely and beautifully presented in the dining room. Plenty to eat and the owners went out of his way to be friendly and accommodating. I really enjoyed my stay and would recommend this little gem to anyone.

Deserves Recommendation - Rating 1/5

Couldn't find it down the dark country roads.Didn't realise it was right in Henfield off the main road.We had a good breakfast, accommodation like home,clean, modern and comfy.Host very genial but not intrusive.Guests were brilliant company - Danny, Paula &Chris.The breakfast conversation was the highlight of our two day stay in the area.Thank you Malcolm. Rating 4 star but site wouldn't allow me to put it in.Definitely not "horrible"

stay here - Rating 5/5

warm welcome, comnfortable and clean room, nice to have a proper shower rather than one that trickles.Breakfast was excellent served hot;quality bacon, fresh mushrooms and generous portions. I would certainly recommend this place to anyone wishing to visit Brighton or surrounding areas.

A gem in Sussex - Rating 5/5

One of the best Bed &Breakfast establishments we have ever stayed at. Comfortable, well-appointed bedroom with superb en-suite facilities. Breakfast was up to the same standard and beautifully presented.
