We have stayed at The Manse twice now and thoroughly enjoyed it. The owners are friendly and helpful, the room is immaculate and the breakfast, delicious ! The Manse is a short walk to shops and beach but still far enough to be away from all the hustle and bustle. My 3 year old son came with us and the... More

The best place we have ever stayed. Second visit and certainly not the last, everything was simply perfect. The people who run it are wonderful the food excellent. Its a very short walk to the town centre and seafront. Parking is easy. Everything is to the verey highest standard.

Stayed here on a single room basis over a weekend. The price was well discounted from the full room rate and so the value for money was even better. It's comfortable, spotless and very quiet, although only a few minutes' walk away from the railway station and all facilities. Hosts are friendly without being in any way intrusive. Breakfast was...

The B & B is immaculate and deserves its five star rating. The room we stay in, Southfields, was scrupulously clean. Breakfast was excellent with a great choice of locally sourced ingredients. Although John was there to provide a friendly welcome, we didn't see much of him throughout our stay as he was busy cooking the breakfast. Anne was extremely... More

Anne and John give the warmest welcome in Eastbourne and their service is superb.We were delighted with our room-the Arlington, with it's wonderful brass bed and luxury bathroom-such a lovely haven to come back to at the end of our long...

I stayed at the Manse for 3 nights (had booked 2 and was able to add on an extra night) in March. I was visiting my daughter who was attending school in Herstmoneaux so had some time on my own as well as with her. Anne and John were very helpful in planning where I might go and how to... More

Spent three nights at the Manse in February.Beautifully appointed bedrooms.We stayed in the Arlington.Huge bed,leather armchairs and a bath big enough for two.It was very chilly,but a log fire at breakfast was very warming.Good choice of breakfast and excellently prepared. Not a lot to do in Eastbourne but then you can jump a bus to Brighton.

My husband and I stayed here recently for my birthday, to have a little break away from our daughter! I couldn't recommend the place enough. It is the most beautiful house, beautiful room and lovely hosts who made us feel very welcome. The breakfast was delicious both mornings and Anne couldn't do enough for us. I would urge people to...

This is what we like!. A B&B in a lovely house with atmosphere and style. The owners were very helpful and took very well care of us. We felt like it was our own house during the stay. We will surely be back soon. If you will be there before us, please leave some of John's home made marmelade for... More
