“Best B&B by far”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2012

Can't fault this place at all, from the excellent breakfast to the nice choclate treats left in the room (very welcome for 6 months pregnant Victoria). The room was perfect, a decent size, spotlessly clean and very nicely decorated (room 6). Matt and Andy were very welcoming and knowledgable on the local area providing good advice. Will definitely return again and have already reccommended to friends.

For hospitality, quality of accomodation (and a great breakfast) I very much doubt there is a better place to stay in Brighton.

From the moment we arrived (earlier actually since we were offered help to unload bikes from our car before we got to the front door!) we were made welcome, comfortable and treated like favoured house guests. This is a level of hostpitality and attention that a hotel cannot aspire to, but combined with the accomodation, facilities and food you'd look for in a good hotel.

Lovely place, fabulous hosts.

Room Tip: We had room 6 - view of the sea from the bay window was nice. Especially with a complimentary glass...

We've just returned from a 2-night stay at The Twenty One and loved everything about it. Matt and Andy were great hosts - offering us both a glass of wine on arrival! The B&B was smart and spotlessly clean. We were in room 7 at the top (and back of the hotel) which suited us perfectly. You can look over the back gardens of the residences behind and also are able to glimpse the sea and a section of the pier! It was quiet at night and we slept well. It's easy to feel quite spoilt with the goodies provided on the breakfast tray, and with the digital radio, TV (good DVD selection available), and also WiFi access, there's plenty to make you feel at home. The B&B is located near the Kemp Town area, which we were unfamiliar with, so it was good to explore. There are lots of great places to eat nearby and plenty of interesting independent shops - the whole area has a nice villagey feel to it. You're just steps from the seafront and less than a 10-minute walk to the pier. The final thing to mention of course is the breakfast - fantastic choice and quality; it was difficult to tear oneself away from the dining room in the morning. Thank you Matt & Andy for a great stay - we will be back!

We were made to feel really welcome from the moment we arrived. Room was superb, breakfast excellent, Matt and Andy were extremely knowledgeable and most helpful. Will be returning when next in the area.

We have just returned home after a wonderful stay at The Twenty One & are experiencing withdrawal symptoms! We must both be half a stone heavier than when we arrived. What am I going to find to say that has not been said already???
Matt & Andy have created a beautiful, stylish & immaculate hotel; it is as comfortable as it is relaxing and they have thought of everything you might want at the end of an exhausting day on your feet (in the rain!) to help you recharge your batteries.
We arrived early, this was not a problem, Andy sorted out a parking permit & Matt took our bags upstairs. Over a pot of tea Andy talked us through Brighton highlights & what to look out for and gave us some local restaurant recommendations.
We stayed in Room 8 at the top of the house. The room is large & spotless, tub chairs, pedestal table & tasteful "distressed" furniture, plenty of storage with a huge comfortable bed. The en suite bathroom has a large shower cubicle (NOT one of those telephone box sized ones that you always bang your elbows in) with plenty of towels and toiletries. To call the hospitality tray just that, feels churlish! The selection of goodies available meant we had to show great restraint or we'd never have enjoyed our dinner out! Fridge in the cupboard contained complimentary bottles water plus corkscrew, cups/saucers, mugs and wine glasses, no drinking out the toothmug here! If the weather had been better I would have used the iron & board provided to press my frock. As well as the large TV/DVD plus a huge selection of DVDs, there is a DVD, Wi Fi & an i pad (yes)
There is a fridge in the dining room full of juices, beer, wine, water & smoothies, these are all complimentary.
Breakfast is a wonderful lavish affair & will keep you going all day! I hope no one noticed how much we ate: Dorset cereals, a variety of fresh & dried fruits, good fruit juices, croissants, full Sussex cooked breakfast, fantastic meaty sausages & the best vege sausages my husband has ever eaten.
Matt and Andy are lovely guys and go out of there way to make you feel welcome & special, they deserve their position as top hotel in Brighton.
Many thanks, we will be back!

Room Tip: Room 8 is spacious & on top floor, sea view to the right, need to be able to manage stairs .
