We had a wonderful time at this beautiful B&B in Brighton. The hosts are brilliant, they are very welcoming and hospitable. The room we stayed in (room nr.8) is on the top floor with a nice sea view and a big and comfortable bed. Breakfast is exquisite. We will definitely return to the 21 in Brighton.

Just come back from a two night stay at The Twenty One and it deserves it's number one status as best BnB in Brighton. The bedrooms were spacious, modern and furnished to a high standard. It felt like a home away from home! Plus, there was a very generous goody tray in the room with chocolates and brownies! Matt and... More

We had a fantastic last-minute stay and had quite high expectations having read the great reviews. We were not disappointed, in fact our expectations were exceeded. The room is full of small little touches that make a big difference in making it feel like you are on a luxury break. Also an excellent breakfast. Brilliant value for money, lovely hosts... More

We had 3 nights at The Twenty One and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room was number 8, right at the top of the building which was probably a good thing as the exercise helped burn off the fantastic breakfasts! I had the best vegetarian full English I've ever had, Andy's mushrooms are to die for. All of the little... More

What a welcome! While Matt was helping me to unload car and take cases to our room, Andy was taking my wife through the 'tourist highlights' of Brighton with a welcoming cup of coffee. Their place is spotlessly clean and the rooms are lovely. Food is great; there is the occasional glass of wine on the house and it's a... More

This was our third stay at the twenty one and we were not disappointed. The rooms are spotless and stylishly decorated and are well-stocked with cakes and snacks. The owners are really friendly and helpful and the breakfasts are great. Highly recommended!!! Janine

Not wanting to put the hotel down with the 2 star price comment as it is genuinely a higher star category. Andy & Matt who own and run the 21 I suspect have never worked in hospitality before, I may be wrong here, but certainly know how to look after guests. Our experience was great. Beautiful rooms with attention to... More

Welcome to The Twenty One, we hope you will enjoy the fact that our well-maintained period property is located in a quiet residential side street, yet right at the heart of the lively and cosmopolitan Kemp Town area of Brighton. We are a few steps from the seafront (our principal rooms have the benefit of side sea views) and within easy walking distance of all the major attractions. All rooms have brand new en-suite facilities. ... more   less
