My wife Mary and I recently stayed 3 nights at the B & B (Hotel) and were delighted at the standard of the room and the service we received. The breakfasts were of an extremely high standard with ample choice for all. The owners, Matt and Andy, are lovely, friendly and genuine people who go out of their way to be helpful. We don't hesitate to recommend The 21 to anyone and we would definitely stay there again on our next trip to Brighton.

I can't say anymore than so many before have already said, other than I have never been compelled to write a review before! The following summarises our experience at the twenty-one, but there are lots of nice touches that are too numerous to mention:

Warm welcome.
Matt and Andy are fantastic hosts.
Gorgeous room (warm enough, comfy bed, great bathroom)
Super clean throughout.
Quality breakfast.
No complaints from the missus.
An extremely comfortable few days.

Thanks again guys, keep up the good work!

This is a brilliant B&B, I wasn't expecting too much, cheap and cheerful all the way but Matt and Andy brought it to a whole other level. We felt perfectly comfortable staying there, the breakfasts were of a very high standard including a really tasty vegetarian option. The photos on the web don't do the place justice. They were really helpful with info and tips of the area and really made our stay a great little trip.

I booked the Twenty One for my friend's 30th birthday in September and we enjoyed a really good stay. Matt and Andy are just the pefect hosts. Our room was gorgeous, breakfast lovely, couldn't fault anything. Hope to be back sometime in the future!

We spotted 21 via tripadvisor and as the reviews were great, so we took the plunge and booked a B&B in Brighton.
The guys have really set the standard from the decor,fixtures and fittings to the first class breakfast with quality produce.
It was the wettest weekend of the year but the guys suggested enough places to shop and eat to get us by and duck out of the showers and make the weekend an enjoyable getwaway that was needed on the run up to christmas.

The reviews are fully deserved and we would recommend 21 to anyone and we hope to come back the next time we visit Brighton hopefully in the summer when the sun is shining.
We wish you continued sucess in 2009!

My husband and i stayed last weekend in the 21. Quite honestly i cannot remember having a better experience.

The Customer Service was amazing from both Matt and Andy, they are a very friendly warm and interesting couple. It is obvious that they love their work and love making their guests feel the 21 is home from home.

They even emailed to wish us a happy Christmas.

The cooked breakfasts in the morning were superb, all fresh and exceptionally tasty. The 21 is in a lovely part of Brighton with lots of restaurants and cafes in the area. The local pub (Hand in Hand) was the most interesting pub we have ever drank in in the UK, fab Ales and great Whiskeys......

We will definitely be back.
