This was our second visit. I can't fault anything. The room was amazing with our own whirlpool bath. Breakfast - incredible. You don't need any other food until dinner. Both the guys are really friendly but leave you to your own devices but there if you need any help. Two nights just wasn't long enough. We will have to go... More

Staying at the Griffin for the 5th time in two years. We would not go anywhere else. Lovely owners, great rooms and beds. The breakfast is the best in two and all reasonably priced. Left alone to get on with holiday but always available for help.

Have just spent two nights at this charming place having originally booked one and then picking another at the last minute. C This meant that we were booked into two rooms, and Chris and Kieran generously arranged that we could leave our bags after the first night and they would put them into the second room for us. We stayed... More

Stayed in the Griffin for 3 nigths and I would say it is one of the best located and beautifully designed/furnished Guest Houses in Brighton. Probably the best guest house we have stayed in full stop. A real gem where nothing is too much trouble. Couldn't fault the place or the owners Keiran and Chris who were both helpful, humourous...

Superbly located on a side street off the main beach front. You can see the wheel from the rooms in the front of house. The owners were very friendly and helpful when it came to parking. We stayed in Room 4, which was spacious, the bed was huge and extremely comfortable and came with a whirlpool bath - just don't... More

Myself and my girlfriend have just had the pleasure of a 2 night stay at The Griffin and will stay again without question. Really friendly people (Kieran in particular went above and beyond when we had a problem that we needed to sort quickly), comfy beds, tasty breakfast and a perfect location are just a few of the highlights.

I must say this is a fantastic little place to stay. Owners were very friendly and extremely helpful. Parking can be a little difficult but highly recommend you purchase the tourist parking permit @ £10 for 24 hours. The room was spaceous , well furnished and clean. Only comment would be that the rooms at the front of the property... More
