“If a certain lager company did guesthouses......”
Reviewed 8 May 2011

Matt & Andy run a wonderful guesthouse. I am in agreement with all the positive accolades already written here. Highlights for us were the delicious melt in the mouth smoked salmon & the chocolate strawberries. So many little extras have been thought of by Matt & Andy which make this a special place to stay. Could not contemplate staying anywhere else if heading to Brighton again. Thank you.

Excellent B&B less than 10 minutes walk from the pier and close to numerous restaurants and bars in the Kemp Town area of brighton. Matt and Andy run a fine house and ensure their guests are provided with lots of good tips, daily treats of nibbles including homemade chocolates on one day. Our room number 4 was and the rear and very quiet, small but perfectly formed and plenty of room under the bed meant bags (and purchases) could be stored leaving plenty of space to move around.

Fine well cooked breakfast using local products, lots of fresh fruit and various high quality cerals. The breakfast room has 5 tables so if everyone arrived for breakfast at the same time there could be a wait, although the house was full it wasn't a problem during our weekend.

Parking can be tricky but the boys sell visitor permits, explain exactly how to fill them in and advise on the best places to park. Whilst a pain, parking is difficult in Brighton and risks will result in fines and worse. The Twenty One is probably only a fiver from the station by cab if one the train.

We look forward to a return trip.

Matt and Andy provided it all - welcome, service, time, music, films, breakfast, nibbles. And, they are attentive to the wishes and needs of their guests. Setting a standard for B&Bs and for just about every hotel I have stayed in. Thanks, I enjoyed the stay - not many places you can say that about.

The Twenty One is by far, the best hotel we've stayed at in Brighton! Matt & Andy were so welcoming and really went out of their way to make us feel at home! Our room (number 7) was immaculate and the tray of teas and nibbles was very generous! We were so touched to come back on our 2nd day and find chocolate covered strawberries and homemade rum chocolates in our mini fridge. Personal touches like these made this a perfect weekend break. The breakfast is not to be missed!... Fresh fruit & Full cooked breakfast was delicious and they cater to every need without any problem!
Matt & Andy have an amazing little gem of a hotel and we wouldnt stay anywhere else next time were in Brighton!

The stand-out feature of the Twenty One is Matt and Andy's flawless service. From the first day when they sit you down with a cold drink to welcome you and give you lots of great advice on places to go/eat in Brighton (Pomegranate restaurant is a must!), every possible convenience or comfort has been thought of - down to home made chocolate truffles in our room as a treat over easter! The breakfast is delicious with lots of choices both healthy and less so, and each room is kitted out with DVD player and a fridge (complete with bottle opener and wine glasses) should you want a night in. Everything is spotlessly clean and, although some rooms are not the largest you will ever stay in (we were in room 7), they are full of character and very comfortable indeed. Highly recommended without hesitation.
