Thank you Kieran, Chris and the family for a wonderful stay. We were made to feel welcome and part of the family. Clean rooms, very comfortable beds, tasty food and the terrace was an oasis in the middle of a concrete jungle! We will definitely return.

Lovely B&B run by very welcoming owners,Kieran and Chris. Attention to detail in common areas and our bedroom was great.loads of local art work and greenery around. Room was very cosy,bed quiet soft though. Breakfast delicious and presented first class. Loved the little 24hr kitchenette for coffee and tea with the adjoining terrace.Perfect spot for exploring quirky Brighton. Thank you... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and I have to say we were really impressed. I loved that as soon as we got there that parking was sorted. Our room was clean and I loved the quirky touches! The owners were friendly and very welcoming. The location was only 2 minute walk from the beach. We would definitely recommend it... More

Wonderful little place. It got a cosy familyfeeling around it. And a great contact with the owners. Good breakfast and nice rooms. The location is central with 2 minutes walk to the pier, 5 to the lanes and 15 to the trainstation. The rooms are non-ac and very hot during our stay.

Just spent 3 nights at the Griffin, and have to say that it is one of the best B&B's we have been to. The guys running this place are great, good fun and very welcoming. Breakfast was very good, bit unusual with the fruit cut into the fry up, and bizarrely worked! Good size room on the top floor, nice... More

Returning from a honeymoon abroad and landing at Gatwick late at night, we wanted to extend our holiday with a few days in Brighton. The Griffin was an excellent choice and started well with an incredibly late arrival which was accommodated by Chris and Kieran with great warmth and friendliness - plus a bottle of Prosecco! The room at the... More
