What a treat this venue turned out to be. We discovered this place by chance, browsing online. My (now) wife and I have been twice now. The two gentlemen who run it are attentive, professional and clearly know exactly what they are doing. They take excellent care of their guests. Highly recommended.

Such a lovely place, the room exceeded our expectations and the owners went over and beyond during our 4 night stay. We felt comfortable and relaxed the whole time we were there and they helped as much as they could even when finding a bar to watch football. It's on a perfect position for; the pier, casino, restaurants and shopping....

My husband and I stayed in Brighton last week for our wedding and we booked to stay for our first time at The Griffin. We stayed in one of their recently renovated rooms, Room 6, and it was perfect with a gorgeous 4 poster bed, jacuzzi bath in the room, and a separate en-suite shower. There is also a pretty...

I can honestly say that I had the most perfect weekend in Brighton - and a lot of that is due to the loveliness of the Griffin. The location is perfect, being a couple of minutes away from the pier. The breakfast was fabulous every morning - the smell of it in the morning was enough to spur me out...

This hotel is amazing; the rooms are beautiful, the breakfast was 10/10 and the location was beyond perfect! The owners were happy to help and gave lots of tips on places to go in Brighton. They also offered parking permits which meant we didn't have to worry about moving the car and renewing parking tickets. It's only a 2 minute...

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. From the breakfast, which was amazing every morning, to the bed which was sooooo comfortable that you don't want to get up. The showers were strong and invigorating. It's an ideal base for a holiday and close to bus routes and the town centre. We have already booked to go again...

The rooms are absolutely lovely. The bigger rooms are at the front of the house and do have some noise to contend with but you have a huge bed and a spa bath so easily appeased. The smaller rooms are at the back and are quieter, the beds are so comfy and perfectly adequate, shower rooms are excellent as well....

A lovely place to stay, service and breakfast was excellent. Rooms were fairly priced and relaxed. Very well located, close to the pier and within walking distance of all the main attractions in Brighton. It can be a little noisy during the early hours of the night at weekends due to the pub across the road. The rooms also look...

Stayed here for 3 nights during half term break . Location is ideal and room space (no.5) was fine for myself and my daughter but unfortunately the noise from neighbouring restaurant made getting to sleep difficult . Just something to be aware of if you are an early bedder; you may want to request a room at front of building.

Thank Fiona L
