A nice little boutique hotel .We have stayed in Brighton previously at the Grand Hotel and this is far better.My wife and I had room 6 on the second floor which was a good sized room with a small en suite .
The place was spotless and nice little touches such as the complimentary water in the fridge and choc bars .
Matt and Andy were really friendly and extremely helpful .Home cooked breakfast was an added bonus.
I would certainly stay again

We stayed at The Twenty One for our wedding anniversary and were spoiled rotten by Matt and Andy from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. The" surprises" left for us in our room, along with the contemporary design and all the extras which come as standard made for an exceptional experience.
It is hard to say anything that hasn't been said before,but these guys aren't the top place to stay in Brighton by accident.They obviously like people and they work very hard to make everyone feel welcome and special.They provide both the environment and level of comfort and cleanliness that many of the 5 star hotels which we have stayed in have failed to deliver.
There really isn't anything negative to say.

This was a lovely and comfortable little place. It's reasonably convenient for the pier and the Laines. The owners are nice and made good recommendations for dinner/drinks. The tray in our room was great (although the Kitkats proved too tempting).

The only slight problem was the noise of construction in the morning from about 8am. Not their fault of course.

  • Liked — The owners and everything else!!!
  • Disliked — The construction noise, a fact of life in Brighton...

This is the best place in Brighton !!

Stayed here for a weekend to celebrate my dads 70th birthday. Matt and Andy make it a wonderful stay. You could not meet nicer people.
The place is immaculate and you get welcomed with a superb breakfast every morning. We had rooms 6 and 8 - both beautifully decorated and spacious.

Forget the rest and book the best !!

The Twenty-One was just what I needed. I arrived on the Thursday evening facing a very tough three day conference. Matt and Andy made me feel welcome from the start, helping me to find a parking space just outside the B&B, hence avoided driving around Brighton all weekend avoiding traffic wardens, They also showed me where to find the best places to eat in the town. The room was small but very comfortable and the lovely breakfast kept me going all day! Each evening I arrived back exhausted but I knew I could have called on Matt or Andy if I needed anything. Nothing was too much trouble.
The Twenty One is also a quiet place even though it's only a short walk from the centre. I wasn't at all disturbed by the many hen parties rampaging through town!!!
All in all a brilliant place to stay - they even emailed me to ensure I arrived home safely!
Look forward to staying again very soon

I chose to stay here on the strength of the reviews on Trip Advisor and I was not disappointed. I was on my own and stayed in the single room, although it does have a double bed. Like all the other rooms this has been recently refurbished and had everything I needed. Matt and Andy are fantastic hosts and the cooked breakfast is probably the best I have ever had. I would most definitely stay here again, the only problem would be getting a reservation as they seem to be booked solid for months !
