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....

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.

Stayed in Brighton for a birthday weekend away and found the Griffin to be the perfect spot to stay. As many other reviewers have noted - Kieran and Chris were great hosts and the breakfasts delicious. Our room was comfortable and close to the little terrace area for unlimited hot drinks & ear plugs (which made me smile. Only needed...

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend without the children. We stayed in room number 6 which has a whirlpool bath in the rooms and separate toilet and shower.
