Arrived in Brighton to attend my friends's wedding. Most of the wedding party were staying at the Hilton on a special offer deal which I missed - so instead of settling for the Travel Lodge - thought I would try the Twenty One as it had perfect reviews on Trip advisor - and am thankful to say that my partner and I were not disappointed.
Andy and Matt waited for our late arrival on the Friday evening and greeted us with a complimentary red wine - which was well needed after getting lost!...Andy took our bags to the room while Matt gave us a map and pointed out the quickest way to get to the wedding venue which was so helpful as my partner Kevin and I are orientation challenged!!
We stayed in room 5 - which was so cute and cosy.... the room was spotless and had everything you could possibly need including a wardrobe to hang our wedding gear in with enough space so our clothes wouldn't get crushed and a fridge which kept the champagne that we bought chilled - and Kevin over-endulged on the complimentary nuts and biscuits.
After having a lovely sleep - and a lovely hot shower - we went to breakfast where we had a feast. Yoghurt followed by a warm crossiant with jam - and then had a full vegetarian breakfast. There was such a varied choice - you could just have fruit and muesli or opt for full english - cooked to perfection. Could not fault the food or the service. The dining area was very quaint and everyone was friendly - chatting about their trips etc.
We were in and out all day - all the time greeted by the friendly face of Andy or Matt making sure we were getting on ok.
After a fabulous time at the wedding - and after losing an hour from the clocks going forward (Andy and Matt kindly left a reminder in our room), went down to be saved by Matt's great full vegetarian breakfast. Andy said we could take our time before checking out - which we did and at no extra cost.
On leaving had a lovely chat with Andy and Matt, showing them our wedding snaps before we went out to meet the happy bride and groom on the sea front.
I honestly could not fault our stay and will be booking again in the summer - if they have any room...!!
