“Expectations exceeded”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

My expectations were very high after reading all these excellent reviews. I'm glad to say they were all met and even exceeded. Matt and Andy run a stunning B&B. You will get a very warm welcome with brilliant local knowledge, a bright, well decorated and spotlessly clean room (which gets maintained every day) and an award winning breakfast (the award is completely deserved). I even had a sneaky look through the window to the kitchen; it was cleaner than my own. We can't wait to return!

My partner and I stayed at the Twenty One this past October and absolutely fell in love. Matt and Andy have put together an absolutely amazing B&B in every respect. The moment we walked in the door we were greeted by a gorgeous and warm environment. Our room was generous in size and was charming beyond belief. The tray of chocolates and cookies were to die for. Replenished daily I might add. We came home one afternoon to a plate of fresh baking. Every piece of advice by Matt and Andy was spot on! This place is a true delight. On our next visit to Brighton we would only ever stay one place and that's The Twenty One. Thanks Matt and Andy and keep up the great work!!!

This is an outstanding B & B, Matt & Andy are the perfect hosts our room was spotless and so was the rest of the B&B the breakfast was cooked to perfection and plenty to choose from. There was plenty of snacks and drinks left in our room. The box of chocolates left in our room for birthday celebrations was a lovely touch. We would highly recommend anyone to stay here and will be going back again for sure.

Fantastic accommodation with a very warm welcome and excellent breakfast . Superb advice about places to visit in Brighton and restaurants to try. Extras like the range of complimentary drinks & snacks and DVD s to watch make "The Twenty One" stand out.
Thank you Andy & Matt we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. L & R

It's rare to find a place that ticks all the boxes, but this is one such place. Clean, georgeous rooms, and Matt and Andy could not have been more friendly or helpful. (I happened to mention it was our first wedding anniversary, and when we got back to our room after going out for lunch there was a card, chocolates and a balloon waiting for us- nice touch!)
We will definatley be booking again. highly recommended!!

From the moment we stepped over the threshold we were made to feel welcome. Everything about our stay was noteworthy from the welcoming cup of coffee, parking advice, lovely comfy beds and an amazing breakfast. We will be back. L&P
