A room was available due to a no show so we were fortunate to stay it the Mowbray . From the moment we stepped through the door we was asked if we wanted drinks after our journey . The room was brilliant with lots of little extras . Breakfast was a array of fresh fruit and cereals then a hot... More

Stayed a couple of nights. Have stayed previously and standards are still great. Since our last visit they have put in an honesty freezer for ice creams and changed their pillow menu. I chose an iPhone speaker pillow. Great! Breakfast was as good as last time - fantastic choice. Sad to see Eastbourne pier but saw that it was being... More

I very much enjoyed my stay at the mowbray, i found the room to be a reasonable standard, altho i did find the windows slightly hard to open and found they didnt really keep the noise out, the TV was in a slightly awkward position but there isnt much that can be done about its location

Thank you for your review and comments. Fortunately being off the seafront means that the road is not as busy as otherwise it might be. Being in a conservation area means that we have to retain the original Edwardian sash windows and of course in those days things were a more quiet affair. We do hope though to upgrade windows...

I was in Eastbourne for work and my 1st initial month was in "The Mowbray" Darren and Angela were absolute delight to have conversation with. They are very helpful and friendly people. Rooms are good size with small bathroom which is understandable since the property is very old. There is theater, sea, restaurants close. The one thing apart from all... More

We have just returned from a most enjoyable stay at the Mowbray. The room was a Superior one with a huge comfortable bed and the attention to detail very impressive. Not just the usual tea making facilities but the added extras of good quality biscuits, fresh fruit, sweets and bottles of water. The bathrobes and slippers were a real bonus,... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and took our dog with us. Not a hotel but a pet friendly guesthouse. I would describe them as pet tolerant only as on Booking.com it states no pets allowed. We had booked a Superior room which are larger than normal and have DVD and Stereo. Great DVD library available for those rainy days. Bed... More

Thank you so much for the review and your lovely kind words. So pleased that the 3 of you enjoyed your break.
