This was my second visit to the Griffin, granted they were nearly 5 years apart, I'd stay here every time I travel to the south coast. The issue, there is never availability!! Breakfasts are a work of art ( and very filling). The rooms are fine, beds comfy, personally I can't ask for anymore. Fantastic stay, can't wait to go... More

Just returned from The Griffin where we stayed for 3 nights with 2 friends for the great escape festival. Chris & Keiran made us very welcome and provided us with a fabulous breakfast which set us up for the day. We enjoyed the guest house and the boys company so much that we have already booked for next year. Great... More

Chris and Kieran were very welcoming and helpful with local information. Lovely little conservatory with beautiful orchids and other hothouse flowers (also in the bedroom and on the breakfast tables), tea, coffee, biscuits, fruit all available 24 hours. The breakfasts were fantastic - I recommend the scrambled egg and mushrooms on toast which comes with avocado, orange and grapes -... More

Had a nice couple of days in Brighton. The guest house is in a great location and we booked adjoining rooms 2 & 3 to the rear of the property. Check in was smooth and straight forward. The rooms were fit for purpose well equipped with TV/DVD player, iron, hair dryer and a handy fridge suited for bottles. En suite... More

The owners of the guest house were really friendly and helpful and could not do enough for you. Loved the mini kitchen for guests use and conservatory from where you could view the Brighton Wheel. Breakfast delicious.

We'd booked our stay at the Griffin Guest House months in advance, and so I'd almost forgotten what it looked like and what a treat we were in for. It was excellent! I was so impressed with their 24 hour tea and coffee room, it's definitely something I hadn't come across before. The room was excellent, lovely a clean, and... More

I have stayed in Brighton a few times for around the same price/time ...but on this occasion i was very disappointed. If it was four in a bed I would give The Griffin a 5/10 :( The room was very basic, black hairs that didn't belong too me or my Partner found in the room. No Basic B&B facilities in... More

We were greeted by Chris on arrival who was incredibly helpful and full of advice. Nothing was too much trouble. The guest house is situated in a great location to explore Brighton by foot with a fabulous Italian restaurant, La Capannina, next door. Our room was warm, clean, beautiful and smelt wonderful so as soon as we walked through our... More
