Two of us had a great long weekend in Brighton staying at Chris and Kieron's lovely guest house. Stylish, comfortable rooms and friendly, welcoming people. Loved the tea/coffee room with all the fantastic orchids and other plants. We had a great time and the guest house was close to the pier, Brighton Eye (right at the end of the road)... More

We've stayed at the Griffin twice now and I can't think of a guesthouse I've liked more. Kieran and Chris are wonderfully hospitable and seem to have thought deeply about how to make people's stay a comfortable and enjoyable one. Beautifully appointed rooms, scrummy breakfasts and the inside track on where to go in Brighton. A hearty recommendation from me.... More

Stopped here for 3 nights with my hubby and 2 teenage daughters. Fantastic location, rooms were amazing especially ours! Breakfasts were the best we've ever had, great combinations. Kieran and Chris were great hosts, the only thing to complain about were the seagulls 😉 would definitely recommend and we plan to return.

You can not really call The Griffin a guest house. The level of service, cleanliness and quality of rooms put some 5* hotels to shame. Yes, probably pay a little more that the average Guest House in Brighton, but it is worth every penny. I would not normally last 3 days in a small 'guest house' - it would probably... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in August having read all the reviews it seemed the obvious choice. We arrived just after 12 and our room wasn't quite ready so we had a drink in the conservatory on the 1st floor which was all complimentary as were the fruit and biscuits. Our room was number 9 and overlooked the rooftops... More

This was our first time staying at Griffin Guest House but it will not be our last! I really can't say enough positive things about our visit. Kieran & Chris create an incredibly welcoming, warm and comforting environment for their guests. They are just great. The food was fantastic - plentiful and delicious. The location is primo, just a few... More

This is a lovely guest house. It has interesting decor with nice extras such as a kitchenette area with balcony off covered in tropical plants and providing all day refreshment. The proprietors are extremely helpful, welcoming and friendly as well as excellent chefs. Go and see for yourselves!

Firstly, apologies guys for the lateness of the review, but I guess better late..etc...Stayed here end of May 2014 and have to say it was a top choice. Great location, nice, clean, comfortable room and has been mentioned many many times fabulous breakfast. The complimentary coffee and biscuits was a great touch too. Will be back I'm sure. Many thanks... More

My husband and I have just returned from 5 fabulous nights in Brighton staying at the Griffin. We had the top floor room (lots of stairs so not for the unfit) with the bath in the bedroom which was a quirky touch. The bed was fabulous too! The weather was amazing which made our stay all the better and our... More
