Just back from a very busy 4 days in Brighton and I was so glad that I chose the 21. This is what other b and b's aspire to be. There really is nothing to not like about this place. It's spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated, tons of little extras that make this place very comfy, homely and the best. I was in the single room, which the owners affectionately called the Broom cupboard. Yes, it's small, but perfectly formed. And as it was only myself in the single room, how much room did I need? It was perfect for me. Rooms are well stocked with tasty treats too. The Tunnocks tea cake and earle grey tea was most welcome! I will most certainly be back, if not with my husband, certainly if I'm back for conference again. So please, anyone reading this review, leave May free so I can go again!

A somewhat belated review, but nonetheless Matt & Andy deserve the praise for a fantastic 50th birthday weekend that we spent with friends in March. We booked all of the rooms and from start to finish we were made to feel at home. The birthday boy had a box of chocs left in his room, but who needs chocs with a tea tray in each rooms that's laden with so many goodies! Not to mention the soft drinks, beer and wine that you can help yourself to before an evening out. Matt & Andy also helped with recommendations of where to go for a special birthday meal (The Chilli Pickle - fantastic!). Everything was perfect, as ever - from arrival to departure. We traditionally stay in room 8 - the top floor at the front of the house. It's a lovely large room (the bed is to die for!) with a compact shower room with everything you need (hairdryer, iron/ironing board, tea/coffee/kettle, bathrobes, iPad!). We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Brighton!

Room Tip: All rooms are of the same high standard, rooms at the rear may be better for light sleepers...but on...

We stayed at The Twenty One while in Brighton to celebrate my partner's birthday and we can't thank Matt and Andy enough for helping to make this trip as amazing as it was! From taking the time to give us information on where to go and what to do in Brighton to the thoughtful chocolates waiting for us in our room for my partners birthday! The room was faultless and the breakfast was lovely. So many extra touches that made this trip and the B&B one we will never forget. We can't wait to come back and won't hesitate in choosing to stay here again. Could not recommend enough! Thank you to Matt and Andy again! Gemma and Laura x

Room Tip: Room 3 is a must!

This was our second stay at The Twenty One and we enjoyed our time there as much as our first visit. It's not often you find accommodation that delivers a high and consistent quality experience.
Matt and Andy have created a very successful formula for a bed and breakfast ; clean rooms, fantastic breakfasts and genuine friendliness.
Given that they have received so many glowing reviews, it was tempting not to add yet more praise, but its always worth recognising great customer service!

Well what can we say but a huge thank you to Matt & Andy of the The Twenty One for making our weekend in Brighton so fantastic. Having never visited Brighton before this wonderful place to stay has certainly made us want to return.

From the moment we arrived and were offered a glass of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, the wonderful selection of goodies for breakfast, the spotless bedroom equipped with everything you could possibly need and owners who made us feel so welcome. What a real gem of a B&B.

Be warned though that you will need to do a lot of walking to work off their wonderful Sussex Breakfasts!

We will be back.
