A stylish small hotel / guest house with a very warm welcome. Fantastic location within easy walk of the Lanes and the sea. The breakfasts were amazing, I had the special small pancakes with scrambled egg, streaky bacon, banana and maple syrup, sprinkled with fresh strawberry and blueberries, yum! We had the room with the whirlpool bath and balcony, beautifully decorated with original art pieces and luxurious bedding. Little touches such as free coffee, tea, fresh milk and special biscuits plus a supply of ear-plugs (early morning deliveries and sea gulls are usual in Brighton..). Chris and Kieran made us feel like it was a home from home. Will definitely be going back.

Room Tip: The big rooms with the whirlpool bath doesn't have a separate shower as well so you need to know that in advance.

A very big Thanks to Chris & Kieran, their hospitality was outstanding, and so was the very comfortable accommodation. Location was perfect and found parking no problem.
The rooms are very special and beautifully appointed, and had air of boutique luxury, and great attention to detail. The breakfast was second to none, and the fruit is a healthy addition.
Would highly recommend The Griffin to everyone wanting that personal touch and the friendliest welcome.
Wishing them all the very best for the future.

Location- beautiful view of the sea (from a street view room), 30 seconds walk to the sea front, lively with surrounding bars but didn't find it overly noisy. Very sweet touch supplying earplugs in the communal kitchen for those light sleepers.

Owners- couldn't be any lovelier, very obvious they want you to feel like a guest in their own home rather than a paying customer of their business. Couldn't do enough to help you enjoy your stay.

Room- was stunning with an old fashioned four poster bed and a lovely bath (with whirlpool jets) at the end of it. Very clean with a fridge which was handy.

Breakfast- amazing homecooked English breakfast in lovely surroundings. Nice to have constant access to a kitchen with tea/coffee making facilities and snacks. Not at all a hassle as some past reviewers have said.

Great value for money all round, this is the only place to stay if visiting Brighton

Room Tip: Room 4 was stunning

Absolutely amazing hotel. Stayed here recently and my boyfriend and I were treated wonderfully from the minute we arrived to departure. Unfortunately we didn't catch the name of the man on the reception desk but he was incredibly helpful with where to eat, where to shop, where to visit, all the stuff you'd need for a couple of days in Brighton. Room was gorgeous, everything was clean and nicely decorated. Hot drinks and nibbles are available in the mini lounge throughout the day which was a nice touch. Not a bad word to say really, definitely booking up again to come next summer! (same review as I gave on trivago)

Room Tip: Chose the room with the walk in shower: was beautiful, with a view of the beach out of the window to the right! Very clean, spacious and contemporary

Dearest Kieran and Chris, I cannot thank you enough for what you did for mum and of course me. You treated my mum just like your mammy and your very generous nature allowed her to feel like she was at home. You welcomed other family members as well. I just loved your breakfasts( including the fruit) as did mum love Chris's Special Reserve marmalade. Thanks for the help with info re hire car, Stonehenge and my quick jaunt to the Ace Café in London. All hours access to the sunroom for snacks and drinks was excellent.Just remember you are in Brighton, so alarm clock unnecessary as the seagulls will make noise on cue. But Kieran and Chris have a remedy for that to!! Different coloured ear plugs. Well done boys Lots of hugs Jesse and Kathleen
