“As wonderful as always...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

...I and my group of girlfriends often book weekends away to Brighton, and when we do there's only one place we'll stay - The Twenty One. Why? Well, for a start it's one of the most relaxed, friendly places you could possibly stay; Matt and Andy are the perfect hosts. The rooms are clean, beautifully decorated and chock-full of those extra little touches (home baked cake as a treat, a fully stocked hospitality tray, fluffy robes...) - and then there's the delicious breakfast, with vegetarians catered for as much as the carnivores. Oh - and if you're at a loss as to where you should spend your time in Brighton, there are plenty of thoughtful maps and suggestions from Matt and Andy should you want them.

A wonderful place - thank you again Matt and Andy... the Twenty One is second to none!

We stayed at the self catering studio belonging to this B&B and it was perfect for our few days in Brighton. It's a few streets away from the B&B but in a great location, easy walk into town, buses almost outside the from door, a taxi from town one evening was only £5.

The studio itself was impeccable, everything we needed and more . Beautifully furnished, wifi, great bath products, really could not have asked for more- Andy and Matt had very kindly provided some basics ( bread, butter, milk tea, coffee, cereals!) so we didn't have to shop immediately, although there is a small shop close by.
If you don't fancy going into town the area around the studio has several lovely pubs, well worth exploring!

When we arrived, Andy sorted out our parking permits, ,carried our case to room 4, which could not of been any better. The guides about Brighton in the room were very informative, Andy and Matt, ensured we had the best possible stay and gave us lots of advice on the best places to eat and drink. .The breakfast amazing. Cannot wait for a reason to return I have never met anyone as caring as Andy and Matt, ensuring that our stay was so personal.

Room Tip: I would of thought that every bedroom was of the highest possible standard. Andy and Matt would not...

My husband booked us into The Twenty One as a surprise for my 40th and he couldn't have picked a nicer place, it's such a lovely b&b and Matt & Andy made us feel so welcome. We stayed in room 8 which has a massive bed and a lovely bay window with a view of the sea to enjoy with your complimentary glass of beer or wine. We were well-fed with a generous selection at breakfast plus room snacks. We felt very well looked after, Matt and Andy are so friendly and helpful. I'd definitely stay here again in the future.

My husband and I have been to Brighton many times, and we've stayed in most of the top Boutique hotels there. We made a last minute decision to go this Tuesday, 13th June. We looked on Tripadvisor on Monday and after reading the review, decided we would like to book room 3. I have literally never stayed anywhere so clean. The step shines, the mirrors shine....its immaculate. Someone must have OCD!! The rooms are beautifully decked out and the generosity of the hosts Matt and Andy know no limits....complimentary wine/beer and soft drinks....a tray of chocolatey treats, and a rocky road under a glass dome. Recommendations for dinner (the Ginger Dog was Excellent). Lovely breakfast,brilliant service and to top it all a lovely card and chocolates left by the bed when they found out it was a special occasion. Don't go if your on a diet!! Otherwise do not hesitate to book it up now. Well done Matt and Andy this is how a Boutique hotel should be run. We will return. Victoria and Julian Gardner

Room Tip: Room 3 - Side view of the sea.

Stay here !!!
On arrival we were made feel so welcome, and were upgraded from a double to a king size for free, room was like a luxury hotel plus it had extras with the iPad and so many chocolate treats which were topped up daily. Breakfast was again 5 star with the added bonus of friendly banter with Matt and Andy. The entire stay was amazing exceptionally spotless rooms and breakfast room,cannot wait to return

My fiance and I had to unexpectantly stop over in Brighton for a night. I had previously been to the South Coast and had a " bad" experience.........we were however absolutely blown away by the hospitality shown and the quality of the place. We were immediately made to feel at home and nothing was to much trouble. We have stayed in many guesthouses, but this one stands out by far. We WILL be back.
