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

I stayed here with my girlfriend at the end of May for 3 nights. We were delighted to find that the guest house exceeded our expectations, which were high in the first place after reading previous reviews! The owners were very helpful and welcoming from the moment we arrived to when we left, letting us leave our bags in the... More

I stayed here for 3 nights with my sister and we really loved it. The owners are so friendly and helpful and endeared themselves to us by referring to us (over 60 yr olds) as 'girls'. The room was smallish but very comfortable and our only complaint was that it was far too hot. If we opened the window it... More

My daughter and I spent three nights at the Griffin Guest house. We had the "suite" on the ground floor at the back of the property. This suited us very well as the suite had two bedrooms, each with a double bed (one room larger than the other but both comfortable) , and a shower room to share. The rooms... More

Stayed at the matson this week, there is no cell service there which adds to the experience! A great getaway for couples! For breakfast we had amazing coffee and amazing eggs bacon and fresh fruit. The view was astounding! Much nicer then any other bed and breakfast I have been to.

We stayed at the Griffin for our first visit to Brighton and loved everything about it. The hosts were terrific; friendly and really helpful.Our room was lovely and breakfast delicious! The Griffin's location is ideal for wandering around Brighton; it was great to be able to ditch the car and relax. We would definitely stay again, it's a real treat!

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.
