Spent 3 nights at the twenty one in September 2014. The b & b was the best we have ever stayed in. Matt and Andy are hospitable and friendly and offer a fantastic place to stay in Brighton. The twenty one is extremely clean and well maintained. We stayed in room number seven and loved the views of the rooftops.... More

This was our first trip to Brighton and having visited Trip Adviser in advance, we selected The Twenty One for our short stay. We were not disappointed. Our hosts were so kind and went out of their way to make our visit a success. We chose a King Size Bedroom which was lovely. Simple and tasteful furniture with a well... More

Matt and Andy are excellent hosts, friendly, informative and genuinely interested in making their guests feel welcome. The rooms are very comfortable and immaculately clean with very generous extras, including the use of an iPad, chilled bottled water and many chocolate bars. This is the best B and B I have ever stayed in.

They noticed our wedding Anniversary cards in the room and left us a thoughtful card and a box of chocolates! Breakfast great, room spotlessly clean. Great location . Snack... More

We booked this B&B on the basis of the amazing reviews and were not disappointed. We stayed in room 8 for one night and moved to room 6 for the remainder of our stay. We knew this in advance so it was not a problem and the owners moved our things which was great. We recieved a fantastic welcome and... More

Had a great couple of days at the Twenty One. Andy & Matt make you feel welcome as soon as you walk through the door, giving you lots of local information and even took our luggage up to the room. Room was very comfortable with the best hospitality tray ever. Breakfast was fantastic with lots of choice and hot food... More
