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

After looking online, me and my girlfriend excitedly picked the Griffin based on all the great feedback about the breakfast. It is safe to say that it was delicious!! Owners cheerfully served us with bottomless coffee, while recommending places to go and asking us about our stay so far. And the breakfast... WOW! I recommend you try it for yourself!!... More

What can I say, being so unorganised it has taken me so long to write a review. I stayed here in November as a surprise treat from my partner to celebrate my 30th birthday, we were greeted with a bottle of bubbly to celebrate. The hosts were both absolutely lovely and couldn't be more helpful. It was a friendly relaxed... More
