Good Points: Spent one night in the suite on the ground floor of the Griffin sharing between four of us. Was ideal as very private and with separate shared bathroom between he two rooms which comprised the suite. Room was nice and clean and fresh bedding and towels, with a little chocolate for each of us upon towels when we arrived. Shower was big although could do with a new shower head.
Upon arrival were shown by owners a Brighton map giving us details as to where to find the bars/restaurants which was handy as we had never been to Brighton before. Location of B&B great for getting to the main town and seafront within minutes.
Also liked the selection of dvds available to all in the hall as each of our rooms had dvd players which is good if nothing on t.v.
Tea and coffee facilities in a nice area on the terrace at top of building. Although we didnt use it is obviously a nice space to sit and relax.
Breakfast was delicious, I had the scrambled eggs with bacon and toast which was gorgeous. Another of our party had the full english which was also delicious.
Bad Points: Although cant be helped, we couldn't park near the B&B and had to park in a multi-storey car park a few minutes away which cost £10 for 24 hours so something to be aware of.
The seagulls kept me up for the majority of the night which is of course not the owners' fault but a bit off putting to the idea of staying there again and not somewhere more inland.
Also must be aware that breakfats starts at 8am weekdays and so heard movement within hotel and preparation for breakfast at 7.15 which was inconvenient after a bad night sleep. Also not enough sugar in sugar bowl as we run out quickly as we use quite a lot between us per cup.
