We stayed at the Griffin B & B for a long weekend during the beginning of June 2013 and greatly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean, inviting and I enjoyed the privacy that this Bed and Breakfast offers. We were also pleased to see that the subway connection was easily within walking distance. Jeannine and her family couldn't have been nicer and more welcoming. This is a great place to stay and we hope to be back again soon.

We stayed at the Griffin for 5 nights in April and enjoyed an excellent stay. The property is in a quiet neighbourhood, is spotlessly clean with comfortable beds and good linen, and the space is generous and well equipped. Our hosts were charming and helpful and we were treated to delicious breakfasts. We spent time in Manhattan but also explored Brooklyn and can highly recommend Sunday morning at DUMBO where there are all sorts of delicious food stalls, a carousel and a great ambience...and you must visit Coffee Mob, their stylish new coffee shop - seriously good coffee and good company. We'd go back without hesitation, Jeannie (London)

The Griffin is superbly located and quiet. Transport links are excellent with a good choice of local restaurants. Our hostsd were very welcoming and our apartment was well-stocked at all times. We particularly like the bathroom facilities which are ample and well-designed
